Our Venues

When we marry in a year we will do so at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh. Weather permitting we will be under the redwood trees (above) but if it is raining (I hope not) we will be in Caledonian Hall (below).
We will have our drinks reception in Caledonian Hall which is used by the Botanics as an events space.
The Botanics is so picturesque and has so many beautiful buildings which will form a beautiful backdrop for our wedding photographs.
After we marry in the Botanics and have our drinks reception we will be transported to Howies Restaurant in Edinburgh city centre. We will take over the restaurant for the whole day of our wedding. Their food is amazing and I can't wait to celebrate our wedding here!
The outside of Howies.
The main room in Howies. We are sadly restricted by how many people we can have for the sit down meal part of our day but we intend to have evening guests as well as our day guests.
Howies roof can be seen in the bottom left of the photo. Just above Howies is Calton Hill which is very iconic to Edinburgh's skyline.
It was my intention to do this today but I will have to postpone to tomorrow (and hopefully the weather stays nice) but I am going to go to the Botanics and to Howies and Calton Hill and do drawings to be used (if they work out) as part of our Save the Dates and Wedding Stationary. 

I am keen to be as creative as possible with our wedding and to add as many personal home made touches as possible. So watch this space!
