testimonial Everyone loved the castle, but the real strength is how homely it feels. ...Our guests were just delighted that we managed to have our big day.

Intimate, Micro-Weddings Venue

Winton Castle’s guests love its blend of grandeur and warm, relaxed ambience. We call it ‘Intimacy on a Grand Scale’, which is why our specially designed micro-wedding packages let you create your wedding on a more intimate scale.

Winton works particularly well for micro-weddings with parties of 30 to 40 or more.

With a rich variety of inter-connecting rooms, each with its own open fire, the castle’s flowing layout lends itself perfectly to smaller parties; a feast for the eyes and soul, whatever the weather.

Emma & Bruce, married here in August 2020 a small party of their nearest and dearest, said:

“We had such a fantastic day and I firmly believe everyone should go ahead with their weddings instead of postponing.”

They plan to return to Winton with their friends and family for a larger celebration. Read their blog, Emma & Bruce’s Micro-Wedding in Winton’s Walled Garden.

Please be aware that we still have some limited availability in 2022, but are now mostly taking wedding bookings for 2023.
