We are still working during closure and our wedding coordinators are available for any questions you may have.

Whether its table settings or party favours for your nearest and dearest we will be with you every step of the way. We can’t wait to bring your fairy tale to life! Our large, brightly lit Bass Rock Suite with floor to ceiling windows make the view of the Firth of Fourth an idyllic setting for your big day. The Bass Rock Suite is an exclusive space available for you and your wedding party with its very own entrance, banqueting kitchen and private bar complete with a wide range of beverages for all your guests to enjoy.

We can even host your reception drinks and canapés in our Bass Rock Foyer which has an accessible seating area.

Intimate, COVID Wedding
We have been working with the Marine Hotel since March 2019 when we were planning a big wedding in summer of 2020. Pre-pandemic and beyond, the events team have remained supportive, communicative, and understanding. Amy and her team have not only facilitated a date change for our big celebration twice, they also seamlessly accommodated our smaller, intimate Autumn ceremony at short notice. In a time that has otherwise been quite bleak for two healthcare professionals, we are so lucky to have created such an emotional and special memory with each other and with our parents. Amy and her team made that all possible: we cannot thank you enough.
