The Glasshouse was the first and only venue we looked at for our wedding, having previously attended one function and spent one night in the hotel. From the outset, we were given a lovely welcome and an extensive tour of the premises, with a full explanation of the options available to us. We were informed that one of our potential dates in May was available for our wedding, so we decided not to delay in making our decision and we set about putting our plans into place. We had a number of visits to the venue during the planning stages of the wedding and we were always pleased and reassured by the enthusiasm and commitment of the team to making sure that our wishes were honoured. We had a menu tasting as part of our package, which was very enjoyable Our plans were based primarily on our hopes for having our ceremony and drinks reception in the beautiful rooftop garden, but unfortunately the weather had other ideas on the day of the wedding, and we were forced to revert to the wet weather plan. Having an outdoor event in Edinburgh is always a high-risk strategy but this is something that the hotel plans for and the team at the venue have a well-practised routine. We did have our ceremony indoors but fortunately the rain let up for a short time to allow us to have some photographs taken outdoors. Not absolutely everything went according to plan but nothing detracted from the magical day we had. Our guests all had a fantastic time and the wonderful three-course dinner was enjoyed by everyone. So many of our guests all commented upon how amazingly good the food had been and what an excellent venue it was. We cannot praise the hotel staff enough for their kindness, their enthusiasm, their hard work and their commitment to pleasing us and for looking after everyone so well. Special thanks are due to Natalie, Dominika and Judy who guided us through the planning process and to Danielle and the team, who looked after us so well on the day.

Huge thanks to Natalie, Sam and the team for staging our wedding party on 15th June. We booked a couple of years before the event and Natalie kept us updated throughout the run up to the wedding. Natalie could not do enough for us and dealing with her was a pleasure. She repeatedly said - It’s your party, we can do what you want us to, which was very refreshing compared to some of the venues we spoke to. On the night of the party Sam covered for Natalie and all went very smoothly. Our guests loved the whole experience and we loved it too. Thanks for a fabulous party.

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

My husband and I got married at the Glasshouse on 16 June 2018. The staff were absolutely fantastic from planning our wedding right through to our big day. We couldn’t fault anything and everyone couldn’t do enough to help us. The day itself ran so smoothly and we both wish we could do it all over again!

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.

Exactly what we hoped for and more
Our wedding at the Glasshouse was perfect from start to finish! the weather was great, amazing food and we could not have asked for more! Natalie had been in contact with my parents to arrange a few surprises throughout the day - My dad being the biggest one! He was not going to be able to make our wedding due to working overseas but was just there on the day (very teary moment) Natalie was a dream to deal with, nothing was too much trouble for her. Everything was seamless on the day, my only complaint was that the day went too quickly! Thanks so much Natalie for making our day as special as it was xx Andreas and Alex

Amazing Venue
Andrew and I chose the glasshouse for our wedding venue, we loved the church front but the garden was the biggest deal breaker for us! Living in Scotland you can never pick the weather, we had a rainy start to the day, but managed to have our ceremony outside and the sun came out just as we were walking back down the aisle! The food was delicious, the evening band were great (think her name was Amy) so happy we booked the glasshouse. The staff were so helpful leading up to our big day and on the day!
