The Reception

You have a choice of beautiful spaces for your reception drinks – the river terrace, gardens, or in front of the fire all serve up a perfect setting.

The fireplace room is at the centre of the barn – it has a stylish oak bar and baronial fireplace, with touches of tweed and paintings of the surrounding landscape reflecting the local area. The furniture can be arranged to suit the size and style of your wedding; so if you want an intimate gathering, sofas and armchairs can surround the fireplace. For a large summer wedding reception, we can open the doors to the river terrace, so you can drink champagne in the sun overlooking the Deveron valley. Adjoining the fireplace room is the dining room and the ballroom – the ultimate space for a ceilidh.

The drink

We have developed a varied and extensive Aswanley wine list. A wedding sample case gives you the opportunity to try a selection of the wines. You can supply your own wine and champagne subject to £5 corkage per bottle. However, no beers or spirits can be brought in but we are really happy to order in specific beers or spirts for you. Our standard bar list includes a wide range of gins, whiskies, spirits and Peroni as the draught beer.

It is up to you how you would like to fund the bar for your wedding reception, a tab can be kept up to an arranged amount, the full evening can be covered by the hosts or the guests can pay for their drinks. You’ll love our reasonable bar prices!

The food

We work with a select group of trusted Aberdeenshire and Moray caterers. They can provide menus suitable for a range of budgets, from champagne wedding receptions to hog roasts. We have a well equipped catering kitchen in the barn which is included in the cost of the wedding venue hire. This includes cutlery, crockery and glassware for up to 150 people.
