Paxton House, which dates back to Georgian times,  is a really fascinating and unique venue for a wedding.  It provided an elegant and timeless backdrop for Joanna and James’ special day recently.

The Picture Gallery is sensational and houses a collection of over seventy paintings dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, many of which have been loaned by the National Galleries of Scotland.  It’s one of the very few houses in the Scottish Borders that can accommodate up to 150 guests for a ceremony and dinner.

Despite its size, Paxton has got a lovely friendly and warm atmosphere.  It’s supported and loved by many people, many of whom volunteer to work in the house and grounds.
