Weddings at Melville Castle

“The most romantic venue in Edinburgh”

Set in an idyllic country estate on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Melville Castle is an unique and enchanting location for weddings receptions and civil partnerships.

The castle has played host to weddings of all shapes and sizes from the grandest of society weddings to smaller and more intimate affairs. We want to ensure that every moment of your special day is a memorable one, that’s why we are here to assist with every detail.

Dating back to 1786, Melville Castle is an immaculately restored castellated mansion with interiors that fuse a modern eclecticism with a classical sensibility together with stunning views that offer the most beautiful backdrop for photographs.

Nestled within 54 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and woodland on the banks of the river Esk, Melville Castle is also home to an excellent Brasserie restaurant where wedding guests can enjoy an extensive range of menus created by our team of chefs using the finest, seasonal, locally sourced ingredients.

The opulent State Rooms provide the perfect setting for arrival drinks, canapés and Champagne receptions. The castle is also licensed for civil ceremonies making Melville the perfect place to say ‘I do’ before dancing into the evening then sinking into the sumptuous comfort of our beautifully furnished rooms and suites.

Outstanding hospitality, unsurpassed attention to detail and a specialist wedding team catering to your every need, combined with fabulous food in a spectacular setting make Melville Castle the only venue to consider for your wedding.
