Valentine’s Day has reached us again, and love is well and truly in the air at the National Museum of Scotland. As we approach wedding season, what a fantastic opportunity to showcase the Museum as a venue for weddings!
The Boardrooms, located at the west end of the Museum, are popular for weddings and can accommodate up to 50 guests in the day and evening. The suite of three levels includes the Board Room, Bute Room and a private roof terrace.
The Bute Room features a magnificent Dovecot tapestry carpet to the centre, whose colours provide a great inspiration for décor. The room can accommodate up to 50 guests for your ceremony then transforms into a dinner space for 50 guests for the wedding breakfast.
The Board Room features a hand-crafted burr maple table and can seat 12 guests in its smaller form or up to 24 in its larger form, and offers guests stunning views across Edinburgh’s Old Town to the Castle.
The hidden gem above these rooms is the private roof terrace. With panoramic views across the city, the roof terrace is a magical place for an outdoor wedding ceremony, reception and photographs.
For evening celebrations, the Grand Gallery is a stunning space for a wedding reception and dinner. From smaller celebrations of 20 guests to receptions for 1,500, the Victorian architecture of sweeping staircases and elegant pillars is an inspiring setting to create magical wedding memories for you and your guests.
The National Museum of Scotland galleries also make a wonderful backdrop for your wedding album. Although the Museum is open throughout the day, wedding couples are welcome to come and enjoy the galleries for unique and personal wedding photos for a small donation to the National Museums Scotland charity.
National Museums Scotland offers a flexible collection of spaces for your wedding celebration and we would be delighted to speak to you regarding your celebration. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or to speak to one of our Wedding team.
