I recently had the pleasure of being the wedding Dj at Drumtochty Castle Auchenblae. It’s amazing that after 42 years as a wedding Dj that I still haven’t been to every wedding venue in Scotland. I love going to castle wedding venues and country houses.
As a very popular wedding Dj I’ve played in lots of castles throughout Scotland including: Edinburgh Castle, Melville Castle, Dundas Castle, Kildrummy Castle, Achnagairn Castle, Urquhart Castle visitor centre, Fort George, Airth Castle, Dalhousie Castle, Stonefield Castle, Barony Castle, Broomhall Castle, Glenskirlie Castle, Blairquhan Castle, Stirling Castle, Bunchrew House Hotel, to name just a few.
To be paid to visit so many beautiful castles is one of the pleasures of being a wedding Dj.
Drumtochty Castle is quite hard to find and I relied on google maps to find my way there. There seems to be a complete lack of sign boards to give you directions.
Mobile phone reception at the venue is not good but that can be a benefit too. Peace and quiet!
When you hire Drumtochty Castle for your wedding you hire the entire venue and this includes lots of reception rooms, the beautiful function room and rooms for your guests to stay in. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is delicious.
The function room is situated on the right hand side of the castle in this picture. Access is fairly easy for bands and wedding Djs through the front door and through the double doors on the right.
Wedding Djs also need a good source of power and Drumtochty has a number of double 13 amp sockets on the far wall making life very easy for wedding entertainers.
My pink up lighting, or mood lighting as we call it, looked spectacular at Drumtochty Castle.
As castle wedding venues go, this is one of the best I have visited and it’s unique history is very interesting.
Castle weddings in Scotland are becoming very popular with clients from overseas becoming more and more frequent.
Drumtochty Castle was once owned by the Norwegian Government during WW2 and was used as a school for Norwegian children in exile from Norway during the German occupation.
Drumtochty Castle is a great wedding venue and I was delighted to be a wedding Dj there and to have seen this amazing castle venue.
