Due to our plans being severely changed last minute due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we were left without a wedding reception venue with 3 weeks to go until the big day!! We enquired at the Scottish Arts Club, in hopes that they would be able to help and we had the most amazing response.Sent on 22/02/2021
They were easily contacted via the phone and had speedy responses to emails, no questions were too much. The food was excellent, the decor was beautiful and the staff were attentive, professional and brilliant to work with - not to mention how beautiful the building is!
We couldn't imagine how our day could have been better - we received such a warm welcome at the Club, and the staff were so helpful in dealing with me as a slightly flustered bride!
Thank you so much Scottish Arts Club, you are real gems!

We got married in the Scottish Arts Club in December 2020. They created the most bespoke and memorable ceremony and experience we could have wished for. Everyone at the club went above and beyond to accommodate and make our day perfect.Sent on 15/04/2021
The setting is fantastic – set on a quiet square of beautiful Georgian townhouses, in central Edinburgh – what more could you ask for for a city wedding venue! Our ceremony was in The Club Room, with it’s rich red carpets, huge windows, and wonderful natural light. It was the perfect blend of intimacy and grandeur. Afterwards, we were given access to the beautiful private gardens on the square for our post-ceremony photos.
Everything about our experience was thoughtfully handled by the staff, and they really created an intimate and relaxed feeling for our big day.
The Arts Club is brimming with character - from the unique pleasure of using The Studio to get ready, to Andy, one of the staff members, beautifully playing the ceremonial music on the grand piano, everything was perfect for us.
Thank you Scottish Arts Club!
