Your wedding breakfast will be created by The Orde Food Company, a well established local family business, committed to personal service and using the very finest of Scottish Borders produce. An extension of the Abbotsford team, their experienced specialist wedding chefs will work with you to invent imaginative and delicious menus to suit every taste.

Ochiltree’s Dining – Maximum capacity 80 guests

Located a stone’s throw away from the House and Gardens, within our state of the art visitor centre, Ochiltree’s provides a flexible space for your evening Reception. Ochiltree’s can be dressed to your unique specifications, meaning the only limits are those of your imagination. The balcony offers stunning views over the house and walled garden, the perfect vista to enjoy your wedding day sunset with a glass of champagne.


Wedding parties larger than 80 people will be accommodated in a marquee, sited on a beautiful terrace between the house and the River Tweed. The marquee can be customised and dressed to suit your requirements, and the wedding breakfast will be flawlessly catered for by The Orde Food Company. All that is left for you to do is dance the night away.


Abbotsford’s intimate gardens are the perfect setting for an outdoor drinks reception. Your guests can arrive to the skirling of pipes, as you raise a glass beneath the open sky, among the fragrant blooms and picturesque arches.

Hope Scott Wing

For a smaller gathering, the elegantly furnished Hope Scott Wing, with its marvellous Tweed views provides a great alternative for a buffet wedding breakfast or drinks reception.
