The Glasshouse Hotel Full Description
There are few wedding venues in Edinburgh promising such a range of choice. Step through the 174-year-old Georgian archway at the entrance to the hotel, once home to the Lady Glenorchy Church, and instantly pass into a bright and contemporary space. Combined with the rooftop garden, and different rooms and pergolas to undertake your vows, and you have one of the most unique and flexible wedding venues in the city. As a fully licenced venue, we can host your wedding ceremony, not just the party. We are able to offer a variety of options for your wedding ceremony in Edinburgh. Our two-acre roof garden is a popular choice. Guests can gather on our green lawn and watch you exchange vows under our flower-decked pergola, or you can tie the knot in more intimate settings on a terrace overlooking the garden. Our stylish indoor spaces are also available, including the Calton Suite, The Brasserie and The Boardroom, which is popular for intimate weddings, housed behind the original church window out of which The Glasshouse Hotel was created. Ceremonies are available as part of a full wedding package, or as a standalone service. Once the formal part of your day is completed with the making of your vows, celebrate the start of married life at The Glasshouse with a luxury wedding reception. We can work with you to ensure that every detail, from decora, menus and entertainment are delivered to your exacting standards.

From the moment we visited the hotel, we knew that it was our venue! The packages in the brochure were good, but we wanted to create our very own special day, Natalie created a package for specially for us and included everything we wanted. The day went too quick, it seems like such a blur! The Glasshouse is a beautiful venue, the staff are fantastic. A big thank you to Natalie for making our day perfect

Our wedding at the glasshouse
Staff on the day were great, they could not do enough to help our guests while we were getting photos taken (which took a bit longer due to the rain!) Apart from the weather, our day was great, the carlton suite has beautiful views and the meal was lovely. Look forward to going back for our anniversary

Our day
It was exactly what we wanted, simple, elegant and stress free. Our ceremony was in the Henderson Gallery, followed by a small get together in the Observatory, the food was wonderful and we particularly enjoyed the champagne. Beautiful hotel, look forward to visiting again soon

Hi Natalie & Judy, we have just returned from honeymoon and wanted to get in touch with you. Speaking to all of our family and friends, everyone enjoyed our wedding and could not fault the glasshouse. Geoff and I cannot thank you enough for all your guidance during our planning! We would have been lost without you or definitely would have forgotten something! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
