Fraser Sharp, General Manager for Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, said: “No matter what time of year it is the Garden is a truly magical space to celebrate your big day, but its charm and beauty is especially apparent in the winter, when the frost lingers on the evergreens providing a stunning backdrop for any wedding photo.

“We have limited dates remaining this winter to take advantage of our new winter deal, which offers the perfect package for couples seeking an elegant celebration.  

“At the Botanics, we pride ourselves on creating memorable experiences and all of our staff, from our talented chefs to our dedicated front of house team, are committed to ensuring the day goes off without a hitch.”

Couples interested in finding out more should attend the venue’s Wedding Fair on Sunday 23rd September, 12-4pm. Free entry and staged in the picturesque Caledonian Hall, the event will feature some of the industry’s top wedding suppliers including florists, photographers, dress retailers and cake specialists. The Botanics’ talented team of wedding and event planners will also be on hand to provide tours of the venue and gardens.
