Intimate Weddings at Winton Castle

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 micro-wedding packages let you create your wedding day on a more intimate scale, specially designed for these strange times.

We know that many wedding dreams have been shattered over recent months, but a small celebration can be just as special, if not more so. Our new micro-wedding packages are perfect for couples who prefer not to wait any longer.

We can host your intimate wedding for up to 20 guests* in historic surroundings with plenty of space for social distancing.

Whether you just want to have a micro-wedding, or you want to hold a micro-wedding now then host a bigger celebration in the future, you should consider our enchanting castle. As Emma & Bruce, married here in August 2020 with 16 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 in 2021. Read their blog, Emma & Bruce’s Micro-Wedding in Winton’s Walled Garden.

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.
