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. Roseanne was really

communicative and quick to reply to any queries Josh and had. Roseanne and team set up everything and communicated with our vendors which made the final two weeks before the wedding surprisingly relaxing! Everything was set up and looking beautiful. The building is already a stunning venue but they did an amazing job setting up and moving the chairs downstairs for the dinner.

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. It was exactly what we had imagined and it doesn’t need a lot of decor or flowers as the venue speaks for itself. 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. Made the day flow so easily! We had an amazing day, as did all our family and friends. Nothing was too much bother and our photographs of the day just show how gorgeous the venue is and how lovely it looked on the day. Everyone was talking about it and how they had never been before and how amazing it all was.

We got married less than a week before lockdown when things were starting to happen with Covid-19. Obviously we were glad we didn’t have to cancel but the team out measures in place even then, constantly cleaning (very discreetly I may add) wearing gloves and just a quick mention to our guests as they arrived about the importance of hand washing etc. I’m so sorry for all the couples having to cancel their weddings at this time but rest assured when your big day comes around at this amazing venue you won’t be disappointed and all the reason to celebrate more.

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. The building has an amazing Old Town Edinburgh atmosphere, with its size making it cosy and welcoming, but features like the painted ceiling and the chandeliers

bringing some magic. The on-site apartment is absolutely great for getting ready (you can see the guests arrive in the courtyard which is fun!) and both stylish and convenient for the wedding night. We can't recommend Riddle's Court enough!

A fantastic, intimate venue perfect for our small wedding. After looking around at many locations in Edinburgh, we settled on Riddle's Court after falling in love with the aesthetic and architecture of the place. We are a Canadian couple and weren't able to see the venue in-person until the day

before the wedding. Sp Riddle's was perfect because it was already so beautiful, it didn't need a lot of decor to make it shine and we wanted to keep it simple coming from overseas. Our contact, Louise, was extremely helpful in getting us the information we needed to make decisions from afar. As the bride, I chose to stay overnight in the King's Chambers, and it was such a good idea to be that close! Everything ran so smoothly day-of, Our wedding party of 16 people couldn't stop talking about the amazing location we chose!

Riddles Court is a fantastic choice for history lovers, aesthetes or people looking for an alternative from the usual...Big thank you to the staff at this venue: wedding planning was not stressful in the slightest due to their friendly and easy manner.
