Cairnwood Estate is a wedding venue located in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. Built in 1895 by the plate glass magnate John Pitcairn, the property was, from the beginning, a testament to the power of love and family. Intended as a home for his wife, Gertrude, and their children, the estate hosted its first wedding in 1896. Today, the venue is proud to continue the tradition that John and Gertrude began, all those years ago. You and your guests are invited to explore the many wonders that the property has to offer. Enjoy a walk in the beautiful gardens or imbibe the serene atmosphere of the Pitcairns’ library, and make memories that you can cherish forever.
