About

30 to 1000 Guests

Unusual Venues Edinburgh is a collection of remarkable wedding venues, each situated in the heart of Edinburgh, Scotland. The three locations are Marlin's Wynd, The Rowantree, and The Caves. Each venue is nestled in the depths of the eighteenth-century South Bridge. The staff have blended modern facilities with the original architecture for the utmost comfort in an authentic, historical setting. For couples who would like a truly unique celebration, Unusual Venues Edinburgh would love to help.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples can host their entire event with this company. These atmospheric venues feature stunning exposed brick walls, large arches, and unique lighting. Marlins Wynd can host up to 50 guests for a ceremony and up to 130 for your evening reception. This mesmerising venue is rich with Scottish history and its construction dates back to the 1540s. The Rowantree is another enchanting location to have your ceremony, with a capacity for up to 70 loved ones. For your reception, you can invite up to 110 people. This stunning area features low, arched ceilings and was originally called Lucky Middlemass' Tavern. This momentous landmark has served several famous historical figures. The largest venue is The Caves, which is ideal for grand galas. It can accommodate up to 150 guests for your ceremony and more than 200 loved ones for your reception. Each room has a unique piece of history to offer. The vaults were once stables of the French Cavalry, and the remains of a house that pre-dates the South Bridge can be admired. All three venues have space for a dance floor and live performers, as well as seated meal facilities. Couples can enjoy exclusive use of their venue throughout their magical event.

    The Caves Just Perfect!

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help and support with the wedding. We both had an amazing day, and everything was perfect – we’re excited to get the photos back from the photographer. Ewan also did a great job running around and looking after us all day, and we couldn’t have asked for more. If anyone ever asks us what we thought of The Caves, you can be sure that we’ll have nothing but praise for the venue and staff

    The Best Day in The Rowantree

    Apologies for the delay in writing this review! But we've both been enjoying married life far too much! I just wanted to say one last thank you on behalf of Michelle & I, for the amazing job you did at our wedding on July 22nd. Not only on the day itself but for all your time, effort & professionalism leading upto it beforehand. Quite simply we couldn't have done it without you! You did a truly wonderful job.... Quite simply you gave us the best day of our lives Nothing was ever too much hassle & your correspondence from our very first enquiry to any questions we had was exemplary. It made the whole experience exactly like the day itself... Relaxed, intimate, personal & so much fun! You made us feel very important & really bought into & exceeded our expectations. On every level! The feedback from our guests regarding the venue, food and staff was incredible! And fully merited. You both did a fabulous job! We will be forever grateful Keep up the great work. You deserve all the praise going.

    Amazing!

    Hi Caroline, Hazel and I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you've done to help over the past year! We had the most amazing day and so much of that was down to all of the staff at The Caves. Chris was brilliant from start to finish as was everyone else. Thank you for making our special day as special as it was. We'll never forget it.

    We can't thank you enough for all of your help (and patience!) in organising our wedding in Marlin's Wynd. We had the most perfect day and you made it as stress free as possible! We'll remember it for the rest of our lives. I will miss the random emails that I had to send you Caroline grin All the very, very best for a wonderful future and thank you so much again!

    Highly Recommend Marlins Wynd

    We had a wonderful day and everything was just perfect for us. Obviously apart from the rain but that didn't bother anyone once we were in the venue. It even dried up for us later on so we got some outside photos on the royal mile. Everyone has been commenting on how beautiful the venue was "very romantic"! I would also like you to pass on our thanks to the chefs on the day as the food was amazing! I have already recommended you to a friend who has now booked her wedding at the Caves for February 2018. Thanks for all your help with the planning.

    Thank you !

    Firstly I must apologise for not emailing back before now. Life got so busy and crazy and I never had a chance to email. Thank you to you and all the staff for such an amazing day. People are still talking to us about how brilliant the day was. How it all ran so smoothly and many people have said to me how warm, welcoming and helpful the staff were. I could not agree more. Thank you all so so much. I was truly an unforgettable day. I have attached a few pictures I think showcase your amazing venue. Thank you again. I just can’t stop saying it.

    Best Wedding Ever!

    Rachel is on her honeymoon this week so while still fresh in the memory I would like to say how much we were impressed with the caves as a venue for the wedding. The venue itself was decked out precisely in the way that Rachel wanted, the tables design and decoration were fantastic, the welcome greeting to all guests was very professional, the food and timely service were easily the best I have seen at any wedding with the synchronised service to all the tables massively impressive.All through the day the staff performed their duties without fuss and nothing was an issue. The final topping on the cake was the evening hog roast which provided all with a welcome and enjoyable food break. You will probably have guessed by now that we were overwhelmed with the service provided and would ask if you could feed this back to all the staff involved for a magnificent effort. We personally received feedback from many of the guests who expressed their delight at the reception many who said that it had been the best wedding they had ever been to. Thank you again on behalf of the Clough and Summers family and if you would like me to make a posting on Trip adviser I would be delighted.
