Why choose Grassmarket Centre for your same sex wedding?


Why is Grassmarket Community Project the perfect venue for your same sex wedding?


Grassmarket Community Project provides support and community for everybody. All are welcome, 7 days a week. And Love is Love.


Likewise we welcome all to hold events at Grassmarket Centre – we’ve had visiting royalty and we feed homeless folk, all are equally important to us. Community is everything, and to build community we need to join together.


That’s why we particularly love holding weddings here. What could be a more joyful celebration of community than a wedding? All of your family and friends coming together to celebrate a special day and the start of a new chapter in your life. We even welcome your dogs if you want to include them, we know just how much a dog is part of the family so it’s natural if you want them to be at one of the most special days of your life.

So why get married here?

Grassmarket Centre is central. Just nestled in the heart of Old Town, we are well placed for rail and bus links & there is plenty of choice of hotels should you or your guests wish to stay over.

But while we are central, we don’t charge central prices. Your budget will stretch a lot further at Grassmarket Centre. Our packages start from just £20 per person and we have a great all-inclusive package deal available in partnership with a fabulous ceilidh band, Sporrandipity.


What’s more every penny we make in profit from your wedding budget goes straight into our charity supporting homeless & vulnerable adults in Edinburgh. Some of the staff who work for us have been homeless or socially isolated themselves and have been supported by us to find their place in society again. Your wedding at the Grassmarket Centre, part of the multi-award winning social enterprise and charity Grassmarket Community Project, will bring joy and happiness to countless people and not just your guests!


Grassmarket Centre is flexible. You don’t need a traditional wedding to fit in here, it’s an anything goes blank canvas venue. Space can be flexible to give you a large room or smaller spaces for other needs such as a dressing room. There’s also a state of the art sound system well used when we hold concerts or Fringe events here. Whatever entertainment you choose to have, you’ll definitely be able to hear it!

Grassmarket Centre has a bit of everything – it’s a contemporary, architectural award winning building with a unique ethical, social & heritage twist in the middle of a historical district. Always the poor relation historically, Grassmarket is now the up and coming place to be.

Grassmarket Centre has a team of great staff who are highly experienced in this kind of catering. Whatever your needs, we can probably accommodate them.

What’s left after the wedding day other than your memories? The photos! Grassmarket Centre has a wealth of interesting photo opportunities with Greyfriars Kirkyard as our backyard and an outside view of Edinburgh Castle.


We would love to see you and your future husband or wife here at Grassmarket Centre to talk about your wedding. We are taking bookings for 2018 weddings but we do still have some slots available if you don’t to wait until then for your special day. If you’d like to take a look around or if we can help in any way please call Catherine on 0131 225 3626 or visit our contact page on www.grassmarketweddings.com.
