The Merchants’ Hall is a gorgeous hidden gem and a dream wedding venue right in the centre of Edinburgh. As the third installment in The Merchants’ Hall venue series, this week we’ll be looking how this could be your dream wedding venue.

This incredible venue rich in heritage is available exclusively or in part for your big day. The Hall can accommodate dinners and weddings for up to 150 and receptions for up to 200 guests. Smaller family weddings can also be held in the fabulous Court Room upstairs.

The domed ceiling is a wonderful focal point in The Hall, letting light flood in during the day. In the evening, the Hall’s array of artwork and sculptures are lit up by strategically placed lights. The room is decorated with portraits and sculptures of the Company’s illustrious founders and benefactors, which means the room requires little extra decoration other than flowers.

We particularly love the Minstrels’ Gallery. This is a great unique selling point of The Merchants’ Hall and can be used for musicians to play during your event, wedding photographs or birds-eye view shots of all your guests.

The venue is also fitted with a high quality PA system and microphones for background music and those all-important speeches. As a venue, they are also licensed to hold religious, civil and humanist ceremonies of up to 150 guests.

We’re proud to be a preferred caterer at such a wonderful location. We can create a bespoke menu for your special day to suit your taste and even to fit to a theme. We have incredibly highly skilled chefs and pride ourselves in the delicious and innovative food we can offer you. Along with top of the line customer service, we will ensure that you’re big day is a special and memorable one.

Next week we’ll be delving into how The Merchants’ Hall is a great venue for hosting a private party or special family celebration.
