Full Description
Gilmerton House is a Grade A listed Georgian mansion that has been in the Kinloch family for thirteen generations. Wedding ceremonies for up to 60 people can be held in the Drawing Room, overlooking the beautiful terrace and gardens. Ceremonies for up to 100 people can be held in the stunning Music Room which, surrounded by wood panelling and with a fine ceiling decorated with Rococo swirls, is one of the finest rooms of its age in Scotland. The Music Room will seat up to 70 guests for dinner. The Dining Room is ideal for more intimate gatherings of up to 20 people. Larger weddings of up to 200 guests can be accommodated in a marquee in the amazing Rose Garden next to the house. “From the moment Denise and I first saw Gilmerton House we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding celebration. It is such a beautiful place, from the extensive and delightful grounds to the magnificent house with its warm and welcoming reception room, ten gorgeous bedrooms…” (Nick) The Gilmerton House has ten luxury ensuite double bedrooms. Overnight guests can enjoy a bespoke butler service and a full breakfast. The newly renovated 3 bedroom lodge house offers further luxury accommodation. Please email or call Gilmerton House any time to arrange to look round and meet our friendly wedding team. “Gilmerton House truly was the fairy tale wedding venue we dreamed of, and we couldn’t have asked for a better setting for what was the best day of our lives.” (Samantha & Edward)
