Perfect Stress Free Day
If you want something a bit different but very Scottish then this is the place. Such a gorgeous hidden venue and so close to the castle and the Royal Mile. It was exactly what we had imagined and it doesn’t need a lot of decor or flowers as the venue speaks for itself. The team accommodated all our needs, we had a lot of kids and they were amazing with them. They were there on hand should we have had any questions and were very organised. Made the day flow so easily! We had an amazing day, as did all our family and friends. Nothing was too much bother and our photographs of the day just show how gorgeous the venue is and how lovely it looked on the day. Everyone was talking about it and how they had never been before and how amazing it all was.Sent on 19/05/2020

Our Perfect Wedding
Honestly everything about the venue was perfect and we can't rate the staff highly enough. Other venues we looked at had 'packages' and a slight pressure to have the wedding a certain way. With Riddles Court we were able to have the small wedding we wanted and it was perfect.Sent on 19/05/2020
Roseanne was really communicative and quick to reply to any queries Josh and had. Roseanne and team set up everything and communicated with our vendors which made the final two weeks before the wedding surprisingly relaxing!
Everything was set up and looking beautiful. The building is already a stunning venue but they did an amazing job setting up and moving the chairs downstairs for the dinner.
