The perfect setting to host your truly unique wedding, where else in the city can you have your special day surrounded by plush greenery and breath taking venues.
We have several event spaces suitable for your wedding day, from the Victorian Caledonian Hall with lovely high ceilings and large windows looking out over the Rock Garden to the John Hope Gateway offering a modern contemporary feel. From intimate ceremonies and receptions to big Ceilidh hoolies, we have the venue to suit you.
I am not sure if this is something that you do at the Botanics but I would be delighted to speak to any future brides about our day and share me my experiences as everything was just perfect. I have often wondered why as well as suppliers companies don’t have actual previous brides at wedding fayers!” – Steph
