Detailed Description

There are few wedding venues in Edinburgh promising such a range of choice. Step through the 160-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 Observatory room and the Henderson Gallery, which is popular because of the original windows of the former church 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 tablecloths to dining choices, are delivered to your exacting standards, from a seated wedding breakfast for 80 to an evening buffet reception for 110.
