FAQ's

There may be some restrictions on the type of ceremony you can have in Edinburgh depending on your personal preferences and religious beliefs. For example, some venues may only offer certain types of religious ceremonies, while others may be more flexible and able to accommodate a wider range of ceremony styles. It's important to check with your venue of choice to understand their policies and options for wedding ceremonies.

Yes, you can choose to have a civil ceremony at your Edinburgh wedding venue. Civil ceremonies are a popular choice for many couples and can offer a range of options for personalization and customization to reflect your unique style and preferences. Many wedding venues in Edinburgh are licensed to hold civil ceremonies, which means that you can have your entire wedding celebration, including the ceremony and reception, all in one location.

Can I pay Corkage cost at wedding venues in Edinburgh?

Some wedding venues in Edinburgh will allow you to supply your own alcohol for some or part of your wedding such as the champagne used for the toast. If your venue allows this, they may ask you to pay a ‘corkage’ fee. This is a small percentage of the cost or amount of alcohol you have bought with you to cover the cost of serving and maintaining the glassware they supply the alcohol for. Of course, some venues, particularly dry hire venues may not choose to put a corkage change in place. It is best to speak with your venue to see what they do and do not allow, although many couples find that they can save a packet as well as enjoy their favourite tipple in the evening by supplying their own alcohol.

Do Edinburgh wedding venues have any restrictions on the type of alcohol that can be serve?

Edinburgh wedding venues may have restrictions on the type of alcohol that can be served due to licensing regulations. For example, some venues may not be licensed to serve certain types of alcohol, such as spirits or fortified wines. Others may have restrictions on the time of day when alcohol can be served, or may require a licensed bartender to serve the drinks. It's important to check with the venue beforehand to ensure that your alcohol preferences can be accommodated and to understand any restrictions or additional fees that may apply.

Do wedding venues in Edinburgh allow firework displays?

Firework displays can add a beautiful and dramatic touch to a wedding celebration, but not all Edinburgh wedding venues allow them.

Some venues may require permits or additional insurance, so it's important to plan ahead and factor in these details when considering a firework display for your wedding.

Lots of couples are won over by the thought of hiring a vintage vehicle for their big day, although an increasing number of couples in Edinburgh are thinking outside the box when it comes to their wedding transport.
