Intimate Weddings

Our intimate luxury weddings at the castle are small yet incredibly perfectly formed.

Afternoon Tea at Auchen Castle was absolutely delicious! We were a party of seven and there was so much food to go around. The vegetarian options were great, the staff were very friendly and helpful and it’s a great way for us to come back and visit our amazing wedding venue. We hope to keep this a yearly tradition. Thank you for an amazing afternoon.

All I can say is wow... I fell in love with the castle from the first moment I saw it... the day itself was absolutely amazing. Sarah and her team bent over backwards to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible...  Thank you Sarah and your wonderful team for giving us a perfect day - best wedding ever!

I wish I could give more than five stars. WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE! We have just left Auchen Castle after a two night  stay for our wedding. There isn't one thing I or any of our guests could fault, from the welcome right through to the departure. Simon and Sarah and indeed all of the staff where second to none.

To Sarah and staff, we want to thank you for giving us the perfect wedding day. You went above and beyond and gave us anything we asked for. We are so happy we picked Auchen Castle as our wedding venue. Our dreams of having an autumn wedding finally came true.

My now husband and I eloped here this past May. Sarah was very responsive to all our emails. We came from another country and the time difference was six hours which made calling not really an option. But she was amazing! We got ready there and then had the ceremony and pictures. We also had the add on of an owl bringing the rings and it was amazing! Everyone was very helpful and kind to us.
We recently had our wedding at the beautiful Auchen Castle and there isn’t a single thing I can fault. Honestly if I could give six stars I would. Can’t recommend Auchen Castle enough - we were genuinely sad to be leaving. So huge thank you to Sarah, all the bar and waiting staff and the staff behind the scenes for keeping such a magical place so lovely and making our day absolutely perfect.
