Winton Castle is a wedding venue steeped in history that blends the grandeur of a Castle with the intimacy of a family home. We fondly call this ‘intimacy on a grand scale’.
Our romantic Scottish Renaissance castle is a hidden gem surrounded by mature gardens, deep in tranquil East Lothian countryside, just half an hour from Edinburgh city centre and the international airport.
As an exclusive use events venue, the castle and its gardens are all yours for the duration of your own castle wedding. Unlike a hotel, this guarantees that your celebration is uninterrupted by other events.
By limiting the number of weddings held here each year, we ensure that Winton Castle is still something of a well kept secret. It also ensures that you receive the very best attention from start to finish.
We are now fully booked for 2022, but are still taking bookings for 2023 and 2024.

Our highly experienced, friendly wedding team will be on hand to talk you through the options and answer any questions.
If you pre-register for the Wedding Open Day by pre-booking an appointment, your name will be put into a hat for 2 prizes of bottles of Champagne. Please book a time slot in Eventbrite here, or complete the short form if you’d like to visit another day. We recommend that you pre-book your time using Eventbrite as spaces are limited.
You can visit Winton in person, or arrange a guided virtual 3D-Tour over Zoom, while discussing your wedding plans. Call or email us to book your tour.
Here at Winton we are ready and waiting to help you start planning one of the best days of your life, whether you are looking for a fully bespoke wedding, or a tried and tested wedding package.
Our team has more than 20 years of experience planning and hosting weddings and we would love yours to be our next one! By limiting the number of weddings held here each year, we ensure that Winton Castle is still something of a well-kept secret. It also ensures that you receive the very best, personal service from start to finish.

Events here make the most of our wonderful nature, wildlife and countryside. Winton puts the environment at the heart of everything we do and have taken a sustainable approach for many years. That’s why we’ve held a Gold Green Tourism Business Award (GTBS) for over 10 years and won a VIBES Award for our local sourcing, waste-cutting, recycling and biodiversity.
