About The Caves, The Rowantree and Marlin's Wynd

Unusual Venues Edinburgh is an award-winning Collection of 3 of the most specatular, exclusive use wedding venues that you will find anywhere in the UK. The Caves, The Rowantree and Marlin's Wynd are situated right in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town and are nestled in the depths of the 18th century South Bridge. Our venues are entirely unique and unlike no other... from the moment you walk through the door you will be blown away. Our modern facilities are perfectly blended into the old features of the venues, providing an unforgettable atmosphere and giving you the breath taking setting for your Big Day. Each of our venues is licensed for civil, Humanist and religious ceremonies and can host your full wedding day from your Wedding Ceremony, to your Drinks Reception to your Wedding Breakfast to the last dance.

The rich history of the vaults had been left in Edinburgh’s past until being rediscovered in the 1990s. The stunning, atmospheric wedding venues with their exposed brickwork, huge arches and spectaular lighting create a unique wedding location.

Whatever your wedding size, we have a venue that can fit your requirements. Marlin’s Wynd is suitable for weddings of 40-50 for the day and up to 130 for your Evening Reception. This enchanting venue spans centuries of Scottish history from the Georgian Reception Room to the beautiful Main Vault which dates back to the 1540's.

The Rowantree can accommodate a wedding for up to 50-70 guests and 110 for the evening reception. This truly Scottish venue was originally called Lucky Middlemass' Tavern and was the watering hole of famour Scots, such as Rabbie Burns and David Hume, as well as notorius locals, such as Deacon Brodie.

Finally, the largest of our venues, The Caves holds 70-150 day guests and 200+ for the evening. Every room in The Caves has a story to tell from vaults that served as stables to the French Cavalry to the reamains of house that pre-date the South Bridge itself.

We guarantee that all three of our award-winning venues are booked on an exclusive basis so your wedding will feel even more personal and special in our enchanting spaces.

    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 Rowantree

    We just want to thank you so so much for all your hard work and effort in making this day perfect for us. No ask was too much and you were always on hand to help us and to help the day run so smoothly. We really can't thank you enough and we are very eager to let your bosses know how amazing you were and please let us know if there's a way we can review your effort and the venue. Could you also pass on our thanks to Jonas and the rest of the staff, they were so friendly and so accomodating it just made the day perfect. Thanks again and now we are on the comedown of normality
