I absolutely love the The National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, so I just had to write about it when I discovered you can get married there.
Far from being a stuffy, dusty old place the main hall of the NMS is stunning with a plate glass roof towering 78ft over you. Its Victorian architecture with elegant pillars, marble floors, sweeping staircases and ornamental fishponds lends itself perfectly to a wedding venue.
If you’re planning a large wedding you can hire the entire hall which can seat up to 550 people, including a dance floor, or for something a little more intimate you can partition off the West End of the hall for up to 300 guests.
There are galleries and exhibits on open balconies overlooking the main hall where your guests can wander and enjoy pre-dinner champagne while soaking up some culture. Everything about the venue cries elegance and grandeur which is what every bride wants for their special day.
The Event’s Manager at the NMS would be more than happy to help arrange every aspect of your wedding from the catering to the lighting and flowers, and they have an impressive list of caterers and suppliers who will make your day as perfect as possible.
