With its gorgeous grounds, charming cottages and nosy resident wildlife, The Byre at Inchyra is instantly captivating from the moment I arrive.
The estate is perfect for a romantic fairytale wedding, and offers up lots of photo opps and ceremony spots.
The front lawns of the main house are ideal for a slightly more traditional ceremony, but the walled garden has to be the highlight.
Not only is the short walk there beautiful (at one point a family of deer even run out of the trees in front of us), the manicured flower beds and tree-lined path make for a seriously stunning aisle.
The double doors of the Byre itself open into an airy but cleverly arranged space, with a bar, state-of-the-art dancefloor and stage, and plenty of room for a sit-down meal, if that’s what you’re planning.
Celebrate in style…
Original features like the cattle drinking troughs offer up the chance to get creative with your décor, but the sensitive restorations (the loos, for example, were crafted using reclaimed wood) have created a function space full of atmosphere.
The Byre at Inchyra is a blank canvas so putting a personal stamp on your day is easy, especially with the help of their hand-picked local suppliers.
The venue’s talented team will also meet with you before your wedding to chat through all the logistics and offer any expert suggestions on improving your plans.

Stay the night…
As well as looking around the venue, I’m also given a sneak peek at the new Stable Yard Bridal Suite during my tour, which was newly launched in 2018.
With wood-clad walls, luxe furnishings and a flood of natural light from high ceiling windows, this stylish accommodation is the ideal place to get ready on your wedding morning, or to spend your first night as a married couple.
