THE IDYLLIC SETTING
8th September 2018
As royal wedding fever sweeps across the nation we discover unique venues sure to provide the perfect backdrop for your own unforgettable day.
ROYAL BOTANICAL GARDENS, EDINBURGH
Adding a little flower power to a wedding isn’t necessarily confined to the bouquets and buttonholes. For those looking for a truly unique venue the Royal Botanical Gardens provide the idyllic setting. Just minutes away from the centre of Scotland’s capital city the gardens offer couples the chance to get back to nature for their big day. From saying I Do under the towering Californian Redwood trees at John Muir Grove to tying the knot in the Victorian Caledonian Hall, this is a venue like no other.
Apart from the opportunity to wrap up in soft and cosy fabrics, tying the knot during the colder months means gorgeous lighting for photographs, more-ish meals, red wine and of course the potential of having a white wedding – literally.
There’s nothing more romantic than saying ‘I Do’ against a crisp white background of soft, fluffy snow. However, the season has plenty more to offer than frost and ice. Winter weddings are packed with character, offering a chance to indulge in a truly hearty and luxurious affair.
