The Ceremony

True love's the gift which God has given to man alone beneath the heaven

At Abbotsford, we offer two beautiful choices of venue for your wedding ceremony:

The Family Chapel

Built by Charlotte Hope Scott and her husband James in 1855, this beautifully simple chapel, which was used for private worship until 2004, offers a tranquil and intimate atmosphere in which to exchange your vows.

The chapel can accommodate 50 guests for a religious ceremony and is of historical significance. The Hope Scotts were friends of the 19th-century clergyman Cardinal Newman, who was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010 – the vestments worn by Newman while celebrating mass at Abbotsford are on display here.

Sir Walter Scott’s Library

Your ceremony can be held in Scott’s magnificent library within the historic house. Built in 1824, the library houses Scott’s collection of 7,000 rare volumes in panelled bookcases, original artworks and an intricate ceiling incorporating exquisite designs taken from from Rosslyn Chapel. The Library can accommodate up to 80 guests for a civil ceremony and with stunning views across the River Tweed, the Library can provide an atmospheric touch of grandeur.
