Located in Dirleton, East Lothian, Archerfield boasts 28 acres of gardens overlooking the Firth of Forth.

This means that when you have your reception in the gorgeous Waterfront Pavilion, you’ll be afforded incredible views out to the shimmering water beyond.

Plus, when the time comes for you and your other half to have your pictures taken, you’ll be utterly spoiled for photo opportunities both in the expansive grounds and within the Mansion House.

No matter the size of your celebration, Archerfield has a venue to suit you. Planning a wedding on the smaller side?

The 17th-century Mansion House, which has opulent interiors, is ideal for ceremonies and wedding breakfasts of up to 60 guests (who will all marvel at the Downton Abbey-esque vibes!).

For larger parties, look no further than the jaw-dropping Waterfront Pavilion, the perfect spot for receptions of 80 to 200 guests.

In addition to its stunning location, panoramic sea views and marquee atmosphere, the pavilion is kitted out with everything you’d normally expect from a permanent structure including a fully fitted commercial kitchen, spacious restrooms and bar facilities.

It really gives you the best of both worlds.



The beauty of having your reception in the Waterfront Pavilion? It’s a complete blank canvas for you to decorate exactly as you please.

Whether you dream of big blousy centrepieces with strings of pearls and fairy lights, or want to recreate the feel of the forest with bundles of foliage and greenery, nothing is off-limits.

You can even arrange a temporary marquee if you’d like a separate space for your drinks reception, or a break-out relaxation area for guests who have danced themselves out!



Forget dry lumps of chicken – the team at Archerfield know that your meal should be memorable for all the right reasons.

You’ll be able to choose your main meal and canapés from seasonal menus, then before the big day you and your partner will be invited to enjoy a preview of your meal (and wines!) to make sure you’re completely happy with everything on offer.
