Cater Hire at Kinkell Byre

Now Available to hire directly from Kinkell Byre

Tables, Chairs and Chesterfield Sofas now available to hire directly from Kinkell Byre. 

At Kinkell we have always been first and foremost a hire venue but we are now looking to offer more support to couples getting married in the Byre. As a result we have made a few changes to the business so that we are now offering more of a service rather than a simple hire. This includes our support before, during and after your event.

Making it easier for you 

So that we can offer the best possible value to our couples and ensure that our events run as smoothly and efficiently as possible, we have decided to offer wedding furniture for hire. We believe that this will make it easier and more convenient to organise weddings at Kinkell while we remain committed to always giving our couples the freedom to choose whatever they want from any suppliers. We are also looking to expand the range of furniture that will be available at Kinkell, adding some extra attractive options, such as wooden cross back chairs and Chesterfield sofas, which we think will really paint the Byre in the best light possible.

Due to the relatively short lifespan and maintenance requirements of cater hire equipment, we will need to charge for the hire of furniture, but we can do this at extra low prices with no deposits and no handling charges, which we think offers amazing value to our customers. 


You can hire:

Chesterfield Sofas – A timeless classic handcrafted in the UK, three-seater Chesterfield sofa in brown leather. With its double-buttoned front border, hand-tacked studding and individual seat cushions, this is more than just a place to sit for your guests it will contribute to the decor of the bar area and compliments the rustic surrounding.

Overall Dimensions: Width 189 cm, Height 67 cm, Depth 92 cm and we have 6 available to hire. 

Chivari Chairs – This is the most popular choice of chairs for the meal and ceremony here at Kinkell Byre and most barn wedding venues.  A wooden lime wash chair with ivory seat pad. 
Coloured seat pad covers are available to hire from Gordon’s Cater Hire if you wish for them to tie in with your theme and colours. 

Wooden Cross Back Chairs – Give the venue a warm rustic feel with the new solid oak cross back chair. Comfortable and sturdy as well as looking very stylish. Luxury linen tie on seat pads are also available to hire to add extra comfort for your guests.  

Round Tables – These are standard folding banqueting tables and we will have two sizes available, 5 foot which will seat 8 people per table or 6 foot which will seat 10 people.
Our Round tables do require linen and this can be hired from most caterers and a large selection of coloured linen can be hired from Gordon’s Cater Hire or 88 Events.

Rectangular Tables – Wooden folding banqueting table which are available in two sizes; 6 foot by 3 foot and 6 foot by 2.6 foot.
The 6 foot by 3 foot are the perfect size for long dining tables. Up to 6 people can fit at this table and there is plenty room in the centre of the table for décor or sharing platters.
The 6 foot by 2.6 foot are narrower which is perfect for a traditional top table, drinks reception tables or gift/decorative tables.

Real Life Wedding – Graeme & Kelly Stirling 

Wedding Date – 17th August 2017


“We are absolutely delighted with our wedding day and all that Kinkell Byre had to offer us!”


Tell us a little bit about planning your wedding? 

It was really important to us to have a rustic wedding; that was more about us as a couple celebrating the love we have for one another, along with our friends and family. The feel of the day was more important than the decor and fancy frocks! Graeme is a farmer and Kelly rides horses so Kinkell Byre seemed like such a perfect representation of our lives.

What did you both enjoy planning?

Kelly enjoyed it more than Graeme!! Loved getting into all the small details, making our own favours, centrepieces, menus and flower arrangements.  

Tell us about your day?

The day was magical, so personal to us. We loved every moment and our guests thought it was simply amazing, they spoke about it for weeks. 

What made it so special?

It was special for us to be surrounded by so much love coming from all our nearest and dearest. 

What advice do you have for other couples planning their wedding?

Do what makes you happy! You will never get the special time back so enjoy planning everything and embrace the moments of the day. 

How is married life treating you?

In terms of day to day life, its really just the same as before but we wear rings! However, there is a deeper gratitude now that we have committed our lives to one another.

Real Life Wedding – Amy & Frazer

Wedding Date – 23rd June 2018

Tell us a little bit about planning your wedding? 

When we got engaged, we both agreed we were in no hurry to get married too quickly, as having just bought our first flat together we were still working on renovations and wanted to take our time to make our wedding exactly how we wanted it.

Our only initial thoughts were that we wanted something that we could make unique and customise to match what we believed was a reflection of us as a couple. Continue Reading…

Your Ceremony Options at Kinkell Byre

We have a fantastic choice of on-site locations for your unique ceremony. Inside and outside!

Here at Kinkell we have 3 indoor and 3 outdoor locations for your ceremony. 

Indoor locations at Kinkell Byre:

Indoor Location 1.  Our most popular Ceremony option is in the “Tattie Shed”. This shed that was added to the Byre in more recent years for storing potatoes in the winter. This is why this part of the building looks different to the rest of the Byre and has very little natural light. 
The Tattie shed is a large square room with red brick walls and a tin roof. However, it is also home to the custom-built starlight canopy, which Kinkell is well known for. This beautiful lighting canopy was built by Stephen Leslie of i-light to create a striking focal point in what originally was a very industrial looking shed. Continue Reading…

The Bar at Kinkell Byre

We have a preferred bar supplier and here are the reasons why.

Our preferred bar supplier – Event Bars St Andrews

Here at Kinkell Byre we have decided to have a set bar supplier, Event Bars St Andrews. Event Bars is run by two gentlemen, Brian and Ross who we have come to know very well. 

By having a set bar supplier, we feel this gives our clients a bar set up which appears to be a permanent feature and also provides a very high standard bar service without sacrificing the flexibility of the venue.
