Wedding couple chose Winton House for its beauty and intimacy
An interview with James and Tania Wood who had a traditional Scottish wedding at Winton House for 65 guests.
“Tania had family connections to the wider area around Winton House, and we looked at a number of Scottish wedding venues. As soon as we walked into Winton, however, I don’t think there was any doubt in our minds: we knew this was such a beautiful and yet intimate venue that it captured what we were looking for perfectly for our autumn wedding.
We had our closest family and friends with us on our wedding day, most of whom came from around Britain and Ireland, with a French contingent who stemmed from Tania’s parents’ decision to retire to France ten years ago.
The format for the day was rather traditional: we were married at Pencaitland Parish Church, where we’d been attending Sunday service for over a year; Tania wore white and James wore a kilt; we had a 1950’s touring limousine as our wedding car, the wedding breakfast, then speeches and a ceilidh.
“It’s hard to pick out one detail among so many: the stunning location; the wonderful décor and works of art; the well-appointed bedrooms and facilities for guests. I would say it’s the quality of what “Team Winton” give to their guests that make the experience so unforgettable. And that includes Francis’s skills with board games!”
