Timberyard, foodies dream wedding venue
Sophie and Iain first crossed paths in Suffolk and their shared passion for food took them on many adventures, in the country and abroad. While visiting Edinburgh to meet Iain’s parents, they discovered Timberyard Restaurant on their first date in the city. When they got engaged, it didn’t take long to agree on the perfect wedding venue!
Located in a 19th-century warehouse, Timberyard has its own charming courtyard, ideal for hosting outdoor wedding ceremonies. The restaurant’s intimate setting is perfect for gatherings from 20 guests, and it can accommodate a maximum of 75 guests for a seated dinner. For smaller, more intimate occasions, the more intimate shed can seat up to 10 people.
Located close to the city centre, there are many great locations for wedding photos. Starting from the red door and the courtyard, and the Vennel is only 5 minute walk away. Timberyard is one of my favourite wedding venues in Edinburgh, and top venue host a micro wedding.

3 reasons to host a wedding in a restaurant
Catering and Cuisine: restaurants are known for their food and culinary expertise. By hosting your wedding in a restaurant, you can be confident that your guests will be treated to delicious meals prepared by professional chefs and you can choose from a variety of menu options to cater to different dietary requirements.
Intimate Atmosphere: restaurants usually have a warm and inviting atmosphere, creating an intimate and cozy setting for a wedding day. The smaller and more personal space can bring guests closer together. Restaurants usually already have beautifully designed interiors, which can significantly reduce the need for decorations. With the right restaurant, you can save on decoration costs while still enjoying an elegant and stylish atmosphere.
Cost-effectiveness: compared to traditional wedding venues, hosting a wedding in a restaurant can be more budget friendly. Instead of renting a separate space, you may only need to cover the cost of food, beverages, and any additional services.
