If you’re looking for a 15th Century stately home set in picturesque grounds, then you’ll love Carberry Tower. Suitable for both intimate and lavish events, the beautiful venue provides the perfect location for the most romantic of wedding celebrations.

1) It mixes historic charm with rural elegance and beautiful gardens

Why pick one of these features when you can have them all at Carberry Tower. At over 450 years old, the venue is steeped in history and features enchanting décor and style throughout.

Just seven miles from Edinburgh, it’s central enough for your guests to get to, yet sat within its own tranquil space, providing a calm and awe-inspiring setting for your big-day.

Its 35 acres of manicured gardens are just another feature, which when combined with all the above, makes Carberry Tower Edinburgh’s ultimate wedding venue.

2) You’ll be celebrating in a home fit for the Queen

Knowing that your venue was loved and lived in by Royals is a surefire sign that it’s suitable for your special day. Mary Queen of Scots, The Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth II are just some of the Royals who fell in love with Carberry Tower and we’re pretty sure you will too!

In fact, the Tower was once the regal home to Queen Elizabeth II. A young Queen Elizabeth II stayed in room 206 within the Tower, while Princess Margaret stayed in room 211 – and you’ll get the opportunity to stay overnight at the venue too.

From a game or two in our Snooker Room to a stunning Falconry display, put on for all your guests, there’s plenty of ways to personalise your day at this venue.

The Snooker Room is ideal for couples looking for a laid-back affair, with guests socialising and enjoying a game over drinks. For something different, the wedding team can arrange a Falconry display for your reception and even arrange for a Bird of Prey to deliver your wedding rings!

4) There’s something your groom will love too

By the time your wedding day arrives, your groom will probably have more knowledge of flowers and wedding styling than he cares to admit. So why not treat him to something more man-ish with a whisky tasting session at Carberry Tower.

The tasting session takes place in the Tower’s very own stylish and contemporary bar and can be set up as a space for the boys - let’s face it, they probably deserve it after all the bridezilla moments!
