Greg and I would like to thank all the staff at the Mansion House for all their hard work and for helping to make our wedding day so special. Every aspect of the wedding, from the planning to the progress of the day itself was expertly overseen. Selina and Jenna were always on hand during the planning phase, responding promptly to my emails and calls and ensuring that all my questions were answered. Their dedication really took the stress out of organising the day.
The Mansion House looked absolutely beautiful on the day itself. The staff worked tirelessly, moving candles and vases around to display them to their greatest effect. In addition, the food was exquisite. Many of our guests commented on how pleasantly surprised they were by the quality of the food. We were also very impressed by the professionalism of the catering staff. It was a long day, but they remained cheerful and attentive right until the very end.
One member of staff who we feel deserves special mention is Sharon. The night before, Sharon and Selina were there and ensured that my instructions for setting up were followed to the letter. Throughout the day, Sharon was always present and sprang into action the minute any problems arose. She really went out of her way to make sure that the day ran like clockwork.
All in all, the day was perfect. We can not recommend the Mansion House as a wedding venue strongly enough.
David and I would just like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at the Mansion House at Edinburgh Zoo. Our wedding day on 20th July 2013 was truly the most perfect day, a lot of that being down to the venue and the exceptional service we received. The staff who were present on the day were very professional and friendly, and helped to calm a lot of nerves! They couldn’t be more accommodating for a bride with very specific taste! Not only was the day fantastic, but the lead up to the day couldn’t have gone more smoothly. From replying to my constant emails (sorry, ha ha!) to the fabulous menu tasting in our own private room, we were made to feel so important and you made the run up to the day just as special as the day itself!
I would recommend this venue to anyone who is getting married, the staff were brilliant, the food was amazing, and apart from anything else, the pictures that you get are phenomenal!
First thank you to yourself and the team for all the support before the wedding, you all made arranging the wedding from a distance much easier.
The team on the day was first class, everyone was great from the waiting staff to those at the end phoning taxis. The meal was excellent and everyone commented on how good it was, the rolls at the buffet went down a treat. We of course have to mention Paul, he really helped the day go smoothly so we didn’t need to worry about a thing, the day was very well run.
We also wanted to mention the suppliers – the flower arrangement was lovely and lasted for a week afterwards
The little extra’s on the day really made it special, thank you very much for the beautiful glasses we were thrilled with them
Many thanks to you all again for a wonderful day!
I genuinely cannot thank the team at Edinburgh Zoo’s Mansion House enough.
Jenna and her team couldn’t do enough to help us in the run up, and were only ever an email away: the day before the wedding I knew they would have everything under control setting up, so enjoyed a spa day and left them to it! On the day, Sharon and Paul were always about ten steps ahead of us, and so many people commented on the fantastic service: at the drinks reception, the meal, the bar… everything!
After the wedding, I have had so many people telling me how impressed they were with the beautiful venue and fantastic staff: 3 months on, I’m still being told how exceptional the food was! In summary, and to quote my dad: “nothing could have been bettered”.
