Paxton House is a gorgeous Georgian mansion on the River Tweed, close to the Border towns of Duns and Berwick. With its combination of traditional grandeur and bohemian chic, it’s a wonderfully flexible wedding venue where you’re welcome to put your own creative spin on things.
For a truly dramatic entrance, why not arrive by boat? Paxton has its own picturesque Boat House and bridal groups can travel up the River Tweed from Berwick. There’s also a tractor and trailer to transport guests ‘rustic-style’ down to the river – brilliant for fun photos and a great talking point.
Inside Paxton House, the Picture Gallery makes a film-set backdrop for your ceremony, with is magnificent National Galleries of Scotland portraits, Steinway grand piano and sumptuous marble and plasterwork. It seats up to 150 guests for a ceremony and dinner. The Drawing Room and Library are perfect if you’d like a more intimate setting. Evening parties for up to 150 take place between the cosy Hayloft Gallery and Picture Gallery.
If you’re planning a larger party, then why not take advantage of Paxton’s own country-style marquee, which overlooks the river?
Paxton House offers first-rate facilities for your choice of outside caterer, as well as a self-catering apartment and a host of great accommodation within a few miles’ drive of the house.
