Fort George Chapel
Like the rest of Fort George, its chapel exudes historical charm. In 1881, it became the regimental church of the Seaforth Highlanders and today is the church of the Queen’s Own Highlanders (Seaforth and Camerons) as well as The Highlanders, 4th Battalion Royal Regiment of Scotland (4 SCOTS) and the garrison church of the resident Battalion, which is currently 3rd Battalion Royal Regiment of Scotland (3 SCOTS).
The chapel is adorned with some of the old Regimental Colours, which give the venue a very majestic, special atmosphere. The ground floor holds up to130 people, with more seating available upstairs if required.
Photographers are spoiled for choice at Fort George and The Highlanders’ Museum (Queen’s Own Highlanders Collection); the traditions of the chapel, the fortress’ magnificent stone arches, views across the Moray Firth, the surrounding white beaches– every type of background needed to capture truly stunning photographs of your special day. We can even provide a traditional horse and carriage and driver to make your photographs extra special.
We have a range of wedding packages available and details of these are available on request. Our event coordinators can accommodate any bespoke or individual requirement and work closely with local wedding service providers to provide additional elements such as marquee hire, catering, venue stylists.
Please note that the Chapel has been dedicated solely for the purpose of Christian worship. All services that take place here should be led by ordained Christian minsters from recognised mainstream Christian denominations only.
