Could this be Edinburgh’s most unique wedding venue?

Perhaps you are looking for a venue that is a little out of the box, or you want to make sure it stands out from the rest. We've got you covered! We don't want to toot our own horn, but we do believe that Restoration Yard has something pretty special to offer. However, we want you to be the judge and confirm whether RY really could be Edinburgh's most unique wedding venue.

The Wow-factor

The show stopper that will have all of your guests saying 'oh wow!'. Located in the center of the lawn, the stunning eighteenth century Orangerie makes for the most incredible backdrop for both your ceremony and drinks reception. Listen to a string quartet while sipping some fizz under the cover of the stunning Orangerie, or throw back some beers and chill out with your guests on the lawn. You could even hire a gin van or a jazz band – the options are there for your special day. The Orangerie also provides a faultless backdrop for those treasured wedding photos.

The best of many

Indoors, outdoors, old or new. There's no need to make those difficult decisions. Here at Restoration Yard you get the best of all settings. The Kitchen is our gorgeous light-filled restaurant with stunning views across the park and River Esk to the historic Orangerie.  Old sits perfectly alongside new here where exposed brickwork meets modern zinc and floor to ceiling glass windows.

It’s a beautiful space seating up to 90 guests.  You can chose from a traditional three course menu or a more relaxed family-style buffet. And of course, there’s dancing. We have space for your band…as well as some crazy guest moves. Download Floor Plan.
