Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
It's honestly impossible to pick just one! Every wedding that we host is so different! We love it when a couple falls in love with the venue from just seeing it online and book without even viewing and they have the confidence in us and the venue to create their perfect day! All of the emails, phone calls and planning from afar turn in to a wonderful, memorable day!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
We know it's easy to say but try to enjoy all of the planning right up until your Big Day! We are always on hand to answer any queries, however small and silly they may seem, just pick up the phone for a chat or send us an email and we can help!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
So many of our couples have had wonderful personal touches to their Big Day, such as Disco balls incorporated into their flower displays for a couple who loved a party, to a Bride walking down the aisle with her two dogs following behind as bridesmaids.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Unique, romantic, historical, magical and unforgettable!
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Depending on the venue..... The Caves would be The Foundation Room which is just beautiful and steeped in Edinburgh history, The Rowantree is famous for its Cow outside and means you can capture some great shots on the Cowgate of Edinburgh and in Marlin's Wynd the romantic staircase leading into the Main Vault which is covered in gorgeous fairylights!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Lots! But we are not allowed to say unfortunately! But trust us you are in good hands!
What’s your favourite canapé?
We have sampled them all and they are delicious but if you are looking for something tasty with a Scottish twist then the chorizo and pork, quail Scotch eggs are amazing! But we also love some of the vegan/vegetarian options too, always happy to give recommendations!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Scottish Stovies and Mac n Cheese always hit the spot after a few drinks and ceilidh dances! But our Beef, Lamb or Hog Roasts are very popular, along with some midnight pies. The dogs bar is something a bit different as well.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The fact that they are so historical and steeped in so much Edinburgh history, no barn, hotel, or other wedding venue is like ours! We love how the stonework can look so beautiful and romantic combined with all the candles, fairy lights and lighting that our venues are full of.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Our Team and the hard work and genuine care that goes into each and every wedding that we host. We are just a small team but everyone works their socks off behind the scenes!
