I was a BM for my brother's wedding here, and it was just beautiful. Pricey venue, but it was gorgeous and perfect for them. I would recommend it for a smaller size wedding, under 100 people, as various people said that the dancing area was crowded and it was difficult to hear speeches because some of the tables were far away, based on space. I do know that they accommodate want you want in terms of using space and picking where you want things to be.

I am SO impressed with the Cairnwood Estate. It is absolutely the most magical, elegant and picturesque place to get married in the Philadelphia area, hands down. Melissa at the Cairnwood was a dream to work with and I cannot say enough good things about them. They weren't fussy with us and we were absolutely treated with the utmost respect and care. Our wedding had 200 attendants and had an international crown from all over the US, Europe, Canada and Australia, and they were all blown away by how beautiful and fun our wedding was. Thank you so much to Melissa and everyone at the Cairnwood for making our wedding magical!

We fell in love with the elegance of Cairnwood Estate the minute we walked through the door and instantly knew that was where we wanted to have our reception. Shannon and Melissa were amazing throughout the planning process, answering every little question we had and helping the day to go off without a hitch. You can tell they really love Cairnwood and want each event to be special. Our guests were enchanted when they pulled up and saw the house all lit up. The decor for Christmas (we were married in December) was spectacular - we hardly had to bring in any decorations ourselves! It was awesome to see the reactions of our guests as they toured the different rooms, toasted in the Great Hall, and danced the night away in the library. We lucked out with the weather and were able to use the beautiful terrace throughout the evening. The bridal and groomsmen suites were the perfect place for the bridal party to get ready as well as to enjoy some drinks throughout the night. It was truly a magical night and would recommend Cairnwood to anyone!

I was so incredibly happy that our date became available at Cairnwood just as I was looking for a venue. The estate is stunning and the grounds are beautiful! It was so easy to work with Shannon and Melissa, they were amazingly helpful and responsive. All of our guests raved about what a beautiful venue it was, and several of them later went back to take a tour and learn all the history of the estate. I loved that we could hold different parts of the reception in different rooms, and that guests were free to roam through the various rooms. I researched every reception venue within the southeast PA/mid and south NJ/upper DE area, and none of them could compete with the beauty of Cairnwood in my opinion!

Cairnwood Estate was the perfect venue for our fall wedding! The blend of elegance and history made way for a unique experience that every guest complimented. The only thing more amazing than the estate itself was the staff. We worked mostly with Melissa but also with Shannon. They were always willing to answer any questions and accommodate us at any time. We planned from out of state so any time we were in town, we were welcome to come by the estate and discuss anything. They always gave us ideas and suggestions on how to make our day perfect. On the day of the wedding, everything was so easy! I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for anyone looking for a venue to WOW their guests!

We were most fortunate to host our intimate wedding at this beautiful and peaceful place. Thanks go to Melissa and Shannon in helping us on short notice to setup a date and coordinate with the vendors. Everything went off without a hitch. It was a perfect day. As they say, " You're a Cairnwood bride now." and I couldn't be more thrilled.

I can't say enough positive things about Cairnwood Estate! Not only is it one of the most breathtaking venues I have ever laid eyes on - it was the absolute perfect location for our wedding! We are SO very thankful to have found Cairnwood for our big day!

Simply put - our overall experience with Cairnwood & the staff there was nothing short of amazing. Shannon, Melissa, and staff were responsive, professional, kind, and the reason our day ran so smoothly! Our guests truly overwhelmed us with all the positive feedback they had from our day, many of them saying they had never seen a more beautiful and original venue for a wedding! The estate is gorgeous and filled with history, the grounds and garden are well kept and beautiful, and the overall feel of Cairnwood is unlike anything else. If you're looking for a unique venue that you and your guests will never forget - this is the place for you!

If you want to get married and feel like royalty, this is the place to do it. The mansion and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms where the guys and girls got ready in are unique, classy, and historical. Melissa was there helping us out every step of the way. My guests were so impressed by the Cairnwood that I'm sure they will be referring it to couples in the future. Thank you Cairnwood for the wonderful memories.

If you want a fairytale wedding, Cairnwood is the place to do it. Getting married there felt like I was in the pages of a storybook. Every room of Cairnwood creates the feeling of a European castle and I most definitely felt like a princess. The staff at Cairnwood is so helpful and sweet. Melissa and Shannon went beyond their job requirements several times to help me with advice. They always had in mind what was best for me and what would make my vision come alive. They made me feel like family. There's no better feeling than feeling so comfortable about every choice you make for your wedding because you know you have a team behind you. I had the most perfect wedding and Cairnwood. It was everything I dreamed of and more. My pictures are stunning. The gardens are always kept beautiful and the mansion is in tip top shape. If you want a venue that no one will stop talking about, get married at Cairnwood.
