If you’re looking for an unusual wedding venue in Edinburgh then Edinburgh Zoo’s superb Mansion House offers a unique and exciting option for your wedding ceremony and reception.
The House offers a number of beautiful wedding venues to create and intimate setting with an exclusive feel – not everyone gets to say they got married at a Zoo! The Mansion House can be hired exclusively, ensuring that you are the centre of attention on this most special of days.
The MacMillan Room:
Our beautfiul MacMillan Room, which is the ideal place to hold your ceremony, gives you the choice of saying your vows facing breathtaking views across the Pentland Hills or towards our antique fireplace. It is wonderfully light and airy, decorated in shades of Wedgwood blue and grey, with intricate decorative plasterwork and has a very romantic ambience. During the day the room is flooded with natural daylight making sure you get the perfect pictures of your perfect day.
The Geddes and Gillespie Rooms
Our Geddes and Gillespie Rooms are usually recommended as the evening rooms because they can be set up as two separate rooms or joined together to make one large L shaped function suite. The two rooms combine to become one magnificent oak panelled room with views across the park and direct access to our gardens. They are ideal because you can have the dining area on one side and a party area on the other; with room for a DJ or band and dance floor.
Edinburgh Zoo Gardens
Or, for something really unusual, why not get married somewhere in the Zoo itself, alongside your favourite animal? You could take your vows within our beautifully kept Gardens, or on top of the African Plains with views to Arthur’s seat; assuming it’s a good day of course, if not we have Mansion House as a backup.
