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.

As a recently engaged couple, wedding planning can feel like a daunting task from venue hunting to table cards, seating plans and not to mention the dress. However, all you need to do is close your eyes, take a deep breath of fresh East Lothian sea air and gather your thoughts. If you think back to your dream wedding that you’ve been picturing since you were a child, you’ll see a big open green space leading up to a historic church. Your guests will be gleaming in the romantic setting as you arrive for the ceremony, which will be perfect, along with the celebration afterwards on a beautiful Scottish country Estate.
The truth is that most of us have already planned our wedding. We know exactly what we want and how it will run from start to finish. Together with your partner, you have a detailed itinerary ready to roll to celebrate the best day of your life and start your marriage journey together. Therefore, the next step is to make your dream wedding achievable.
Dunglass Estate is a picture-perfect venue in East Lothian that merges your plans with a beautiful church, grounds and cosy accommodation. The popular venue is available to book exclusively so you can ensure a private event that’s extra special for your friends and family with a dedicated team to run your special day and take care of everything.
Securing your date is a challenge for many couples so it’s best to make enquiries as soon as possible, regardless of the season. Weddings are a beautiful occasion at any time of the year, but we have a great Spring Offer wedding package available now. A glorious time to get married amongst blossoming flowers and to start a new beginning together.
Dunglass is also ideal for an intimate wedding and therefore we are offering an Intimate Wedding Package. A small, simpler celebration may be just what you need for your perfect day and this is a great option for Winter Weddings on a budget. Read more….

Whatever your plans for your dream wedding, Dunglass will do their best to accommodate you and our talented team will guide you through the process. We take pride in a personal touch to tailor your day to your requirements.
When it comes to planning your wedding, fewer people can mean a more personal celebration. You’ve got more time to spend with your wedding party, your guests can really get to know one another and you can pay attention to those finer details that make your wedding truly memorable.
Here’s five reasons why an intimate wedding might be right for you.
Keep to a smaller budget
Deciding to have a smaller, intimate celebration can work wonders on your wedding budget. Maybe you’d rather put the money towards building your future, such as a down payment for your first house together, a once in a lifetime honeymoon or simply have more to spend on those finer wedding details.
A licence to splurge
Some couples like to have a small guest list, not because their budget is small, but because it allows them to splash out on other things. This could be a five-piece jazz band in the foyer of Dunglass House or it could be splashing out on the wedding dress of your dreams.
Treat your guests well
Personalised details are more manageable when there’s less people to think about. Your guests can truly relax and enjoy every moment of your nuptials without getting caught up in the chaos. There are so many ways you can add that extra wow factor and an added bonus is that you get to cut down on the thank you cards.
Just because you’re saving money elsewhere doesn’t mean you can’t splurge on your special day. Why not treat your guests to an indulgent wedding breakfast served with the finest wines.
How does a five-course East Lothian tasting menu sound? Or maybe you want to incorporate some family favourites to your menu – whatever you fancy Hickory, our award-winning caterer, can create a truly gourmet experience for you and your guests.
Quality time with the ones you love
Ultimately getting married is not only the joining of two people but the coming together and merging of friends and family. With a smaller guest list, you’ll have more time to spend with those closest to you and your guests will have more time to get to know one another.
How many times have you been to a wedding where you’ve hardly spoken to the bride or groom? Create memories that you’ll cherish with your loved ones and take your time to really catch up with your guests.
Feeling pretty convinced? We don’t blame you! If keeping your wedding special means just inviting your close family and friends, our charming Intimate Wedding Package may be the perfect choice for you.
