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.
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 or if you would like a specific wine that is not on our list, then you are welcome to make your own arrangements, subject to a £5 per bottle corkage fee. We have a standard bar list, with Peroni as the draught beer. We try to meet any requests out with this.
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!
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.
