Some couples would rather have a wedding that is a bit more laid back, a bit more intimate, but just as special as a grand, decadent celebration. That's how we do weddings at Cortes.
The house is large, but never imposing. Elegant, but not fusty. Spacious, but with an intimate feel. It makes for a magical venue. Our approach is to give you a blank canvas for your wedding: to allow you to choose exactly how you would like it.
Be the Laird and Lady of all you survey with the privacy of an exclusive use mansion for your wedding. Cortes House is a historical regency house, built in 1810.
Cortes has a glass-topped atrium that floods the house with light, whatever the weather. The reception rooms are high ceilinged, with marble fireplaces and delicate cornicing.
Cortes can sleep up to 30 people in 12 beautiful, individually designed rooms, meaning your family and friends can stay over for the wedding, so it isn’t over in a flash!
Up to 50 people can dine in the manor house in a single reception room; up to 75 if you interconnect two rooms and up to 120 if you choose to hire a marquee in the grounds.
The bridal suite with its 4 poster bed and delicate murals in the vast bathroom is a true gem!
Dining is flexible at Cortes: we can help supply catering, or allow you to provide your own.
Only 50 minutes from Aberdeen city centre and 40 minutes from the airport - Cortes is easy to get to, for all your guests.
Located in 5 acres of private grounds, with an elegant lawn and beautiful secret garden, Cortes gives you complete privacy.
We offer you freedom to have your wedding as you choose. We provide the venue and help plan your big day, but leave you to decide exactly how you would like it.
Cortes offers the luxury of a perfect wedding (with a less elaborate price tag!).
