As the UK revels in the memories of the Royal wedding, Macdonald Houstoun House in West Lothian has launched a search for couples who celebrated their wedding at the central Scotland hotel over the decades.

The luxury four-star hotel, located in Uphall, West Lothian is inviting its brides and grooms over the decades to take a trip down memory lane, by sharing their Macdonald Memories, to be in with the chance of returning to the exquisite country house wedding destination for a weekend.


To take part, couples should send photographs of their wedding and the year in which they wed to or post on by 30 June 2018.


One photograph will be selected at random and the winning couple will be treated like a king and queen with a luxurious dinner, bed and breakfast stay in the wedding suite at the hotel, including a royal welcome of champagne on arrival*.


Situated in a secluded location near Livingston, west of Edinburgh, and set within 22 acres of beautiful woodlands, Macdonald Houstoun House is a perfect wedding venue to create memories to last a lifetime.

The hotel showcases a selection of elegant function rooms and gardens for the champagne reception and the Houstoun Suite ballroom can host up to 200 guests.
