Whether you’d like a lavish two day wedding house party with the castle exclusively yours, a private afternoon ceremony followed by a decadent afternoon tea or anything in between, we can deliver the wedding of your dreams with the essentials you need included. There are no set formulas, no two Augill weddings are the same, it’s your day not ours and we take great pleasure in making it personal to you. The only elements of an Augill Castle wedding that are always the same are the intimacy and privacy of the venue, the beauty of your surroundings, the friendliness and un-stuffiness of the people who look after you.
