A big wedding isn’t for everyone. If you’re looking for a smaller, more intimate wedding then Dunglass is the perfect venue for your special day.
Here are some of our favourite reasons to have an intimate wedding at Dunglass.
Spend quality time with loved ones
Sharing the moment you say ‘I do’ with a select number of loved ones can make it even more special. You’ll also have more time to spend talking to your guests, something they will always remember.
Make a weekend of it
Our intimate weddings all include a two night stay on the stunning Dunglass Estate. Groups of up to 10 will have exclusive use of Dunglass House while larger groups (up to 22 people) will have use of all three properties: Dunglass House, Laundry Cottage and Stable Cottage. So, you can relax with your nearest and dearest ahead of the big day. Not only that, we can provide supper for your arrival night so you don’t have to lift a finger!
Treat your guests
With a smaller number of guests, you can treat them to the very best food, drinks and entertainment, without breaking the bank. How does a three course or even a six course tasting menu using only the finest local ingredients sound for your wedding breakfast? Our award-winning event partner, Hickory, will provide you and your guests with truly outstanding meal.
Money, money, money
An intimate wedding allows you to save or splurge depending on your budget. You’ll save by having a smaller guest list and venue meaning your budget can go towards entertainment for the evening, venue decoration or, could even be put towards a once in a lifetime honeymoon. We have a number of intimate wedding packages available to suit different budgets and can work with you to create the day you’ve always dreamed of.
Dedicated wedding planner
One of our expert wedding planners will help you to plan your day and you’ll have the service of our dedicated team on the day to ensure your big day runs smoothly. From helping to find suppliers to styling advice, our planners have a wealth of knowledge and experience to help you plan every detail.

Intimate wedding packages are available between November and March and midweek throughout the rest of the year.

Throughout this blog series, we’ll be taking a look into each of the stunning residential properties at Dunglass Estate in more detail. This instalment is focused on the Stable Cottage.
The Stable Yard at Dunglass in the past has housed the carriages. Later, the motor vehicles were housed here, for use by the original mansion house, which is now Dunglass House. In later years, this was converted into the Stable and Laundry Cottages. Stable Cottage can be booked on its own for a small party or as additional accommodation for a slightly larger group of wedding guests.
Stable Cottage has undergone a complete redecoration in 2013 and along with a bright and welcoming sitting room containing a cosy wood-burning stove, there’s also a comfortable eat-in kitchen and a new bathroom complete with power shower. If we do say so ourselves, this is the perfect place to get ready, relax and celebrate.
Upstairs there’s three sizable bedrooms, sleeping six (two doubles and one twin) all with lovely views of the grounds. There is also a little sanctuary of a sitting room upstairs for those desiring a peaceful and relaxing space. Beautifully furnished throughout with fabrics and rugs, this authentic Victorian cottage has a warm style which will make you feel right at home. Luxury bed linen and soft fluffy towels are provided, so you don’t need to worry about anything. This charming cottage also has all the comforts of home, including Wi-Fi and a TV with DVD player.
We believe our accommodation is perfect for wedding couples and their guests to stay. If you’re interested in having your wedding on the estate, please contact our Event Planning team.
