City Chambers Marriage Suite is the perfect civil ceremony venue in Edinburgh
It’s always thrilling being able to see inside a newly-refurbished wedding venue, and the City Chambers Marriage Suite at 253 High Street in Edinburgh does not disappoint.
City Chambers’ location is perfect for anyone wanting to get hitched in the city, with excellent transport links and an abundance of hotel accommodation to choose from. Only Gretna Green pips Edinburgh to the post for the most weddings held in Scotland each year. However, we think this relocation of the marriage room from Lothian Chambers might inspire even more couples to get married in the city. It might just begin to give Gretna a run for its money.
Many happy couples have got married at Lothian Chambers over the years. We’ve been honoured to photograph many of them there. However, the Registration Services have made the move to the High Street, and with it has come a top-notch renovation we’re sure many couples will be delighted to take advantage of. Indeed, if you’re planning on getting married in this stunning location, surrounded by many of the key sights and attractions in Edinburgh, contact us now. We would be privileged to photograph your wedding.

The City Chambers have been freshly and considerately renovated to provide a beautiful setting for a touch of romance. Three rooms have been made available for weddings. Couples can meet family and guests in the comfortable Guest Lounge, which has fantastic views across to Edinburgh’s New Town and the Kingdom of Fife.
The main Ceremony Room has been tastefully decorated in neutral yet warm tones, with a fireplace included as a focal point and an understated chandelier providing a touch of luxury. Newly-wed couples sign the marriage schedule in a smaller adjoining Signature Room.
The appeal and versatile nature of these spaces work beautifully for your civil wedding ceremony.
Those in charge of the renovation have achieved a look any couple will love when looking for a registry office in Edinburgh to get married in. This will not be remembered for a dated or tired look. Instead, the renovation has brought this stylish wedding venue into the 21st century.
The City Of Edinburgh Council has also taken great care to use locally-sourced suppliers for the décor and interior. A lovely example is the oak furniture in use in the marriage rooms, sourced from the Grassmarket Community Project. The fittings also feature contemporary velvet upholstery by Scottish Designer Mairi Helena, as well as Scottish Tweed from the Isle of Bute. Couples can also make good use of the experienced and friendly wedding team if assistance is required.
After your wedding at the City Chambers Marriage Suite, you can take full advantage of the city centre location. Photos can be taken inside the marriage room and in the reception area. An added bonus is the beautiful staircase which offers plenty of natural light for photos.
Outside there are many more opportunities to capture some beautiful moments against the backdrop of Edinburgh’s Old Town.
Iconic locations including Parliament Square, St Giles’ Cathedral, and even the Alexander and Bucephalus statue, located in City Chambers courtyard, are all within easy reach. The many sights of Edinburgh provide ample inspiration for taking the wedding day photos you will look back on for many years to come.
