|NEWS & REVIEWS|
Winton Castle is a historic wedding venue in East Lothian that blends castle, palace and family home. As an exclusive use events venue, the castle is all yours for the duration of your castle wedding.
Our romantic castle is a hidden gem surrounded by mature gardens, deep in tranquil countryside, just half an hour from Edinburgh and the International Airport in Scotland.
With links to the powerful Seton family, Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie, Winton Castle has a rich, romantic history. The castle was burnt down by Henry VIII in the sixteenth century during the ‘rough wooing’ of Mary Queen of Scots, then rebuilt in the beautiful style of the Scottish Renaissance.
Winton Castle is also still the family home of Sir Francis and Lady Ogilvy, which means that it has a very welcoming, relaxed ambience. We call it ‘intimacy on a grand scale’.
Designed for entertaining in the seventeenth century, the castle has five exceptional, inter-connecting reception rooms which are ideal for wedding celebrations.
You will be allocated a Wedding Coordinator who will help you manage all aspects of planning and running your wedding, including:
You can choose to hold a religious, civil or humanist wedding ceremony in Winton’s grand drawing room.
