Alex & Cayley

"We are from the United States, and decided to get married in Edinburgh after planning our vacation there. Riddle's Court was the perfect venue for our elopement. The Seton room was intimate and personal, with absolutely beautiful architecture. There were so many great places for photos, and it is conveniently located on the Royal Mile in the Old Town, so we could walk from our hotel."

Shereen & John

"We had our wedding at Riddle's Court in September 2018, and we found Gail and the team to be an absolute delight. They were friendly, approachable (even with silly questions!) and nothing was too much trouble. The venue is really quirky and was unlike anywhere else we had seen; unique and steeped in history and charm."

"Riddle's Court is just a lovely venue for a wedding, and Louise and the rest of the team were fantastic on the day as well as beforehand.

Laura & Ross

"If you want something a bit different but very Scottish then this is the place. Such a gorgeous hidden venue and so close to the castle and the Royal Mile. The team accommodated all our needs, we had a lot of kids and they were amazing with them. They were there on hand should we have had any questions and were very organised."

Laura & Ross, Married in March 2020

Rachel & Josh

"Honestly everything about the venue was perfect and we can't rate the staff highly enough. Other venues we looked at had 'packages' and a slight pressure to have the wedding a certain way. With Riddles Court we were able to have the small wedding we wanted and it was perfect."

Rachel & Josh, Married in February 2020

Nicola & Alex

"When we first fell in love with Riddle's Court and chose it as our wedding venue, we had no idea that a global pandemic would get in the way of our plans.

Nicola & Alex, Married in August 2020

The original features and historic beauty made it a very special place for us. "
