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.

We are so happy that we chose Riddles Court for our wedding in October 2019. We knew that we wanted to get married in Edinburgh City Centre, however we were struggling to find a venue that wasn't too small or too big, then we stumbled across Riddles Court by chance and our numbers fit in perfectly.

We visited and fell in love with the history, architecture and the overall feel of Riddles Court.

From our first meeting, through to planning, the actual day itself and even afterwards, the events coordinators were a pleasure to work with. Always very communicative and happy to help. We were offered a lot of flexibility so that the day could be exactly how we imagined!

The day itself was so relaxed and everything seemed to flow seamlessly! All our guests remarked on what a beautiful and unique venue it was.

All in all, we would highly recommend Riddles Court to anyone looking for a truly special venue in the heart of Edinburgh!

My husband, Neil, and I got married in June 2019 in the beautiful Riddle's Court. We had the most wonderful day with all our friends and family, and Riddle's Court played a huge part in making it so special.

In the run up to our wedding, Gail and Louise, the events coordinators at Riddle's Court,

allowed us the flexibility to plan our day as we envisioned, and were always eager to accommodate our wishes. On the day, their help and support was key in helping the day flow seamlessly (from our point of view anyway!), which meant we were able to fully enjoy the time with our friends and family.

Riddle's Court is an absolutely stunning venue (all our guests thought so too!) and we feel so lucky to have hosted our wedding in its historic rooms. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Riddle's Court to anyone considering having their wedding there.

We had the best wedding at Riddle's Court last month. It's a beautiful historic venue, right in the heart of Edinburgh and has been wonderfully restored. Our day ran like clockwork and we couldn't have dreamt of a more perfect wedding.

A big part of what made it all so perfect, was the wonderful

team at Riddle's. Gail and Louise were so helpful and accommodating in the run up to our special day, always willing to chat to us and have us in to see the venue when we needed to. On the day itself, all of the team were great - helpful and around whenever we needed anything, but not at all intrusive. Finally, since the day Louise and Gail have been in touch to help us deal with post-wedding pick ups etc - nothing has ever been too much trouble.

We couldn't recommend Riddle's Court any more highly. If you want a romantic, stress-free wedding in the heart of Edinburgh, it's definitely the spot for you.

We loved the Patrick Geddes Centre at Riddles Court from the moment we saw it and we knew we wanted our wedding ceremony to be held there.
Our first meeting with Louise until our ceremony was professional, efficient and friendly. We had quite a few specific requirements for our special day but

nothing was too much trouble or a problem.
On the day everything exceeded myself and my husband's expectations, it was wonderful and many of our guests commented on how amazing the venue was.
I would highly recommend the Patrick Geddes Centre for your wedding or event. It's in a beautiful historic area of Edinburgh, the venue is stunning and the service is top class.

Riddles court was a perfect venue for our late October wedding. We wanted somewhere with character and warmth, and Riddles court provided this and more. Open fires in every room, unique and unusual heritage features provided character and atmosphere to a lovely venue perfect for an autumn/winter

celebration.

The customer service was great, and the team where very accommodating to our every request. The list of preferred suppliers was very good and we were able to decorate the venue to our taste, making for the most beautiful of days.

We stayed in the attached apartment which was not only very beautifully decorated but convenient. I stayed the night before so I was able to get ready with my bridesmaids and just walk across the courtyard to the venue. We had 56 guests at our ceremony which I have to say was a bit of squeeze but with two rooms to choose from we more than made use of the larger room in the evening to accommodate around 100. In summary, the venue and team at riddles add to what can only be described as the happiest of days.

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. Also, being located just off the Royal Mile was ideal for us as we wanted somewhere in the city centre. On the day, everything went really smoothly, and we had the informal, relaxed wedding we hoped for. We also stayed in the apartment upstairs (the Kings Chamber) which is stunning, and made our weekend even more special. Huge thanks again to all the staff at Riddle's!

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. To go along with the scenery, the staff were very friendly. They let us look around the day before and wanted our wedding to be perfect as much as we did. Eloping was definitely the right decision for us and we cannot recommend Riddle's Court highly enough.

Thanks again for helping to make our wedding day perfect!
