The Signet Library, Edinburgh

Party like a rockstar (without being told to "Shush!")

The Signet Library, Edinburgh

If you think a library is full of musty books, threadbare carpets and spectacle-wearing librarians then your perceptions will be blown out of the water by Edinburgh’s Signet Library.

When King George IV popped into the Signet’s Upper Library in 1822, he described it as “the finest drawing room in Europe” so with this royal seal of approval, what better setting could there be for your wedding party?

If you’re a book lover, legal beagle or are just looking for that truly unique wedding location to get one up on your chums then this is most definitely the place.

The Signet Library couldn’t be more conveniently located if it tried. It sits right at the top of Edinburgh’s world famous Royal Mile – you’ve most likely gone past its doors without knowing of the beauty that lies within.

With a grand staircase to ascend, bookshelves laden with leather bound volumes of knowledge, epic spaces to entertain anywhere between fifty and over 200 of your nearest and dearest you’d be pushed to find a more swish space in Edinburgh.

Who else could the  Signet Library partner with than Heritage Portfolio to create mouthwatering wedding food and wine menus that will match the beautiful surroundings course after course?

The Signet Library event designers have an encyclopedic knowledge of weddings, some may say they know them from A to Z (groan!) so if you want it – the team will work with you to make it happen.

Niels & Alie love…

The fact so many people just don’t know the library is there – it’s a true hidden gem of Edinburgh’s wedding venues.

Who’d have thought you’d be able to party like a rockstar in a nearly 200 year old library?

It’s just so stylish and grand. Elegant, wonderful and classy are the perfect words to describe weddings at The Signet Library.

Wet or dry, The Signet Library works for beautiful photographs. We always say have a plan A and a plan B weather wise – The Signet Library has both covered.

The number of accommodation options you have for your guests within a few seconds of the library front door – five star boutique sits beside budget – everyone will rest well after the party has come to an end.

Real Life Scottish wedding: The Signet Library, Edinburgh

27 November 2021

This Signet Library wedding was just filled with so much love and so much fun. Long overdue but magical in every part.

Despite the set-backs including the crazy Storm Arwen (with some guests travelling for 10+ hours, and spending the night unexpectedly in hotels) nothing was going to stop this day from happening.

You Make Me Happy Every Day

Faye and Iain are as perfectly matched as you can get. Not only are they clearly besotted with each other, they also take the time to make those around them feel loved and valued… and their wedding day was all about doing just that.

Caledonia you’re calling me

It was a wedding filled with love and legacy… but importantly it was also an epic party with the most incredible bunch of buddies (check out that dancefloor at the Signet Library).
