Fairytale Scottish Castle Wedding Venues

For many brides, a castle wedding in Scotland is the archetypal romantic dream, and our castle wedding venues certainly don’t disappoint. Bask in the seclusion of luxurious Dundas Castle, situated on a glorious private estate, or Winton House, a Scottish renaissance masterpiece that is both a castle and a stately home. Alternatively, enjoy 5 minutes of fame as you wander up The Royal Mile to celebrate your union in Scotland’s most iconic landmark, Edinburgh Castle.

Country House Wedding Venues

Want to marry like a Lord and Lady? You can do just that at one of Scotland’s glorious stately homes. Ours are close enough to the city to be wonderfully convenient, but within the quietness and privacy of their own estates. Whether you follow in the footsteps of David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay, enjoying the hospitality at Gilmerton House, or wish to unite in ‘Scotland’s Finest Stately Home’ Hopetoun House, our country estate venues offer a sumptuous taste of luxury.

Luxurious Private Club Wedding Venues

Why not follow the example of Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakly and hire a luxurious city centre club or guild headquarters to celebrate your union in style? The elegant but unassuming façades of Edinburgh hide a wealth of architectural gems, such as ‘the finest drawing room in Europe’ at The Signet Library, the inspiring Victorian library at The Royal College of Physicians, or the stunning neo-classical dome and minstrels gallery of The Merchant’s Hall. Alternatively, savour the aroma of whisky excellence at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. 

Gloriously Gothic Wedding Venues

What about something really different? Edinburgh’s spectacular skyline is speckled with the arches, spires, columns and towers of gothic revival archicture, so if you want to get married in the city, why not take advantage? At Mansfield Traquair, candlelit ceremonies, petal-adorned floors, draped interiors and soaring ceilings will enthrall you, and The Hub, a towering pinnacle of Gothic architecture dominating the summit of The Royal Mile, makes a fittingly majestic unique venue for any bride.

Large Capacity Wedding Venues

If you can’t winnow down your invitation list, you’ll want a venue that can cope with your numbers whilst keeping standards of food and service exceptional. Whilst also housing more intimate spaces for small weddings, these venues can welcome 500 or more guests with aplomb. Whether enjoying arrival drinks in a rainforest at Dynamic Earth, being awe-struck by the Victorian galleries at The National Museums of Scotland, or dining under crystal chandeliers at the magnificent Assembly Rooms, every guest is guaranteed a wonderful day.

Quirky Wedding Venues

Defy convention and choose a quirky wedding venue with an extra twist. You could astonish your guests with a drinks reception in the stunning Whisky Vault at The Scotch Whisky Experience, study the form at Musselburgh Racecourse, or enjoy a close encounter with nature as part of your wedding at Edinburgh Zoo. Or why not choose Dovecot studios – once a Victorian swimmings baths, now a showcase for textile art? Whichever quirky venue you opt for, there’s great fun to be had in keeping the theming going throughout the event.

Outdoor Wedding Venues

Getting married in Scotland, you’ll want to take full advantage of balmy weather, whilst having a great back up plan if rain chases your guests in from the garden. Wedding venues throughout this selection can incorporate the outdoors, whether set within beautiful estates, or accessing secret gardens in the heart of Edinburgh. However, The Royal Botanic Gardens must take the prize as the ultimate horticulturalists’ dream, and is the ideal location for an outdoor wedding in Edinburgh.
