Beautiful Venue

This was such a beautiful venue. We didn't even consider buying aisle decorations or centrepieces. Communication was great throughout and the staff were very professional and accommodating on the day.

Absolutely Stunning

I can't say enough good things about the Royal College of Physicians. We had our wedding reception there, and all of our guests were blown away by how beautiful all of the rooms were. We worked with Tanni leading up to the event, and she did an amazing job answering all of our questions and coordinating with our other vendors. The rest of the staff was also extremely professional and helpful. The event itself went smoothly, and they handled last minute curveballs without a problem. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to hold an event in Edinburgh.

A Dream Venue and a Dream Team

We couldn't have wished for a better place for our wedding. Tani and the team have made the whole process of planning our wedding so easy. They have helped us an guide and every step of the way with a kindness and patience I've never seen before.
On the day of the wedding I was able to be completely relax and enjoy my day as I had complete trust in them and indeed everything was perfect.
It also helps that the place is stunning and they have packages to help with catering!
