The tradition and atmosphere of the room make it an obvious choice for your ceremony. Lined with historical books, overlooking balconies and grand marble fireplaces at either end, the shape naturally lends itself to an aisle to really make an entrance.

Cullen Suite

The bright and elegant Cullen Suite has stunning views over Queen Street Gardens and across to the Firth of Forth. Beautifully decorated ceilings and original features make it a superb place to toast your special day.

It is ideal for smaller ceremonies of up to 40 guests or a place to toast your event before the wedding breakfast in the Great Hall.
