Myres Castle, nestled in a beautiful part of Fife is both ancient and luxurious. A family home, we have decided to host exclusive weekend weddings over the summer months. The castle sleeping up to 24 guests (with Lodge) and stunning grounds will be your own. We have built a very special barnquee at the bottom of our walled garden – you can style it as you wish and it really does make a fabulous and unique party space. We have fairy lights, lanterns, fire pits and even a pizza oven for you to use. There is seating for up to 160 guests, luxury loos, catering tent an Apple store for cosy ceremonies and a beautiful formal rose garden.

An incredible weekend, and at the most beautiful of venues. Thanks to Henry, Amanda and the entire team at Myres, we will remember our special day for the rest of our lives. The weekend went perfectly from start to finish – with beautiful weather also thrown in! We were well looked after but also left alone to enjoy the entire Castle and the grounds. The banquet meal on the Friday was incredible and the evening spent in the drawing room with close friends and families, was almost as much fun as the wedding itself. We could not have asked for a better wedding day – everything went beyond our expectations. It was just perfect. All we have heard since from friends and family is “best wedding ever” – and we would wholeheartedly agree with that. Thank you again, Myres – you made our special day, special!

What Henry and Amanda Barge have done with Myres Castle is actually pretty risky. To have a castle as a wedding venue adds quite a bit of expectation both from the couple and from their guests as to what kind of day it will be. A castle and venue of this size runs a fine line because often large venues that are not doubling as hotels can feel a little bit duck taped at the corners and there is a lot of upkeep to stop a place feeling ever so slightly Faulty Towers esq. On the contrary, Myres Castle is a complete showcase of what vision, investment, creativity and a brilliant team of staff can do.
By the time you load the castle with friends and family who are going to be staying it quickly feels homely in a way that a hotel styled venue never could. The Friday night dinner is a grand but at the same time very relaxed start to the weekend. The rooms and ensuites offer five star comfort. Getting married is a big deal and this place lends itself to that superbly.
Somehow we got extremely lucky in what had been one of the wettest starts to a year on record but even if it does pour down, Myres is very well set up to deal with that. Henry was completely relaxed about waiting until the morning of the day itself before we decided inside or out. The day goes by far too fast for the bride and groom at any wedding but what’s good about this venue is that the guests move around from the ceremony to the top gardens to the barnquee to the Apple Store lawn and back to the barnquee which adds a huge amount of liveliness to the day. It makes for a flowing event for the guests and seeing them love the place only makes it better for you. The gardens are immaculate with tonnes of photo opportunities. The Barnquee is a cracking purpose built space with a bar in the same room as the dancing which I reckon is crucial to getting that ‘everyone together’ feeling. When we initially started looking for a venue there was a part of me that wanted somewhere that not many people would ever get married. The issue with that is it’s a lot more work and ultimately risk. The Barnquee gives you the chance to kit it out however you want for the individual factor whilst at the same time the Barges and their team have got everything 100% covered in the background throughout the day to ensure it’s all going to plan. They have great relationships with their suppliers and whilst wedding planning can seem stressful for the couple (especially if you have a Groomzilla like me) these guys have all been working with the Myres team for a while now. Because everyone knows the drill it enhances your weekend. A venue like this, maintained and run like it is makes me proud to be from the area. I couldn’t recommend it any higher.

Attended the Smith wedding in March & it was the dreamiest weekend ever! This venue is like something from a fairytale, the castle and grounds are exquisite and the employees were so friendly & helpful with everything. Thank you Myres for an unbelievable weekend!

Myres Castle is an absolutely beautiful venue, both inside the castle and throughout the fabulous grounds. We got married here on 22nd July 2017 and despite it having been the first time in ages that it rained there on a Saturday…we truly had an amazing time. We first spotted Myres in a wedding venue brochure, so I looked it up online and fell in love with the place from the website alone. When we went to visit, it exceeded our expectations and we knew for sure that it was where we wanted to get married. The team at Myres are so friendly and welcoming and come the big weekend itself, Henry was on hand to ensure that we had everything we needed in the castle and that our day would run smoothly. The food provided for the castle guests was delicious and the rooms were very comfortable, not to mention beautifully decorated. I felt the grounds particularly around the Applestore and the Barnquee looked magical with the trees, fairy lights, fire pits, flowers and candles – I wanted to stay there forever! I can’t thank the team enough and I’d go back there in a heartbeat!

My husband and I had our wedding here last weekend – it was a fairytale! Henry and Amanda welcomed us so warmly into their homes for the weekend. It was so refreshing to find them caring for their own gardens! They are the most lovely people. Our guests were blown away to live in the castle for the weekend and so were we! The bedrooms are so gorgeous beyond words. The staff are so friendly and attentive. The Friday evening meal and Saturday/Sunday breakfasts were delicious.

We could not have asked for a more perfect weather weekend and were married under the beech tree on the lawn. The drinks reception in the garden was amazing. Our caterers were absolutely amazing and kept our guests happy!

The barnquee was gorgeous – rustic and simple and exactly what we were looking for. Henry and Amanda are so helpful in accommodating to make your wedding absolutely perfect.

We were so gutted to check out on Sunday morning but it was absolutely the most wonderful weekend of our lives! Thank you so much xxx

Myres Castle WOW!!! We got married here on 15th April 2017. We first visited Myres now over 2 and half years ago when they just had the blue prints for the barnquee.

Henry & Amanda were so lovely & reassuring about how the barnquee would look for our wedding that we booked before it was even built. The grounds, the castle, the whole place just felt right and we knew the barnquee would be the same once it was built. Henry & Amanda kept us up to date with the build with emails of photos etc we were at the opening event of the barnquee to see it revealed.

Myres Castle is everything and more we wanted for our wedding venue. We loved that we had not known anyone who had married here and when we would tell people where we were getting married it wasn’t that well known, this was a big plus for us as its an unique venue and not one that does weddings every day week in week out. Infact they only do weddings from March to September & only host 1 wedding a weekend so the grounds are all yours for the whole weekend. Thats what made it special for us and made it personal that we knew we had found a hidden gem in this place.

Henry & Amanda were amazing in the lead up to our wedding nothing was a hassle & everything was taken care of right down to the very detail. I felt like a queen on my wedding day having this venue just all to ourselves with a lovely intimate dinner for us and 24 guests on the Friday evening, then breakfast and a light lunch on the Saturday before the wedding then a good old fry up for the Sunday breakfast.

Everyone at our wedding is still talking about what a venue it was & one of the best they have been to. Myres is just so magical and the perfect place to get married. We got our photos back from the photographer & video from videographer & the photos of the grounds speak for themselves its amazing.

Thanks again to everyone at Myres & a big thank you to Henry & Amanda you made our day perfect and we will never forget it.
