The Scotch Whisky Experience

Undoubtedly one of the most unique wedding venues in Edinburgh, the Scotch Whisky Experience plays hosts to truly unforgettable weddings in Scotland. Located in one of the most historic and visually striking cities in the UK, there are few better locations to see your dream wedding come to life.

The Scotch Whisky Experience is one of Edinburgh’s most popular attractions all year round. And with services offering whisky tasting and a blending masterclass, this is the ultimate wedding experience for whisky lovers from near and far. Not forgetting, you can celebrate with up to 80 guests in either the Castlehill Room or wine and dine the night away in the fabulous Whisky Collection room.

The Exchange Hotel Cardiff

At the Exchange Hotel we offer the chance to say “I do” in one of the most influential buildings in the UK. Located in Cardiff’s striking former Coal Exchange building, there are few buildings remaining with more effortless charm, character and history. The Exchange Grand Hall was once the Coal Exchange’s grand trading hall floor, where up to 200 men would secure trade deals day-to-day. Cardiff’s Coal Exchange is particularly iconic as its trading hall saw the world’s first £1 million deal made.

The intricate interior of the hall has been carefully preserved, while restoring the historic building with a fresh lease of life. The Exchange Grand Hall continues to showcase its decadent features and fabulous ceiling, without compromising on modern facilities and a twist of luxury style. There’s no doubt that this is the most exciting wedding venue in Cardiff Bay.

The National Marine Aquarium

One wedding space with a unique glow of its own is the National Marine Aquarium. You can tie the knot surrounded by your nearest and dearest, with some special underwater guests! A magical spot with a tranquil atmosphere, this picture-perfect venue has a backdrop that truly sets it apart.

And the excitement doesn’t come to an end with your big day. You can also tuck into your wedding breakfast surrounded by the panoramic tanks, making the experience an unforgettable one for everyone involved.

Camp Kátur

And don’t worry, for those who prefer being amongst the trees than the hustle and bustle of the city, Camp Kátur is the perfect choice for an ethereal wedding of your dreams. Amidst the woodland and greenery, you’ll discover unique accommodation featuring their Glamping & Camping village.

The scenic venue also offers the chance to make the most of the outdoors with fantastic activities for all your friends and family.
