About Cairnwood Estate

Reminiscent of a French chateau, Cairnwood’s distinguished architecture, flowering gardens, and expansive lawns provide a distinctive backdrop for a truly exceptional event. The estate provides a setting that departs from the ordinary with endless indoor and outdoor reception possibilities.

Facilities and Capacity

Cairnwood can accommodate up to 250 wedding guests with beautiful indoor and outdoor settings. A towering and masterfully built mansion, award-winning gardens full of blooms and fresh manicured lawns make this venue truly idyllic, peaceful, and romantic in nature. The majestic great hall features two-story ceilings, large and beautiful windows for natural lighting, and a Victorian charm that exudes class and luxury. Their terrace provides couples with the perfect outdoor location for a cocktail hour, as well, and overlooks the gardens and lawn.

History

This venue's backstory resides in a deep and tragic love story, as it was once a home built by the fortunes of John Pitcairn for his wife, Gertrude. Just three years after the home's completion, Gertrude passed away, leaving John alone until his death in 1916. The mansion remained untouched for a decade before it was brought to life as a National Historic Landmark. The wonderful staff keep it as close to its 1895 roots as possible, so guests can feel the rich and deep history it holds.

    Very Beautiful

    This venue was an historic beauty. If you want to feel like a princess on your wedding day, this is the place to go to. They do not do weddings but they have facilities they refer to. But for receptions, this is a great choice.

    Hidden Gem outside of Philadelphia

    The employees at Cairnwood are so accommodating and helpful. They took my fiancé and I around on our first tour and were very informative and then allowed us to come back again and tour it ourselves. The grounds are beautiful and we can’t wait to have our wedding here!
