How much do stately home venues charge for wedding hire?

As with all wedding venues, costs for stately home and country house weddings vary, but you may be surprised at how affordable some of the options can be! You don’t always need to have an A-list budget to get your own mansion in West Lothian for your wedding. If you’re looking to cut costs, then consider a midweek wedding or marrying in the low season, such as early spring or late autumn.
