The impressive Mansfield Traquair was originally built in 1885 as a Catholic Apostolic Church. Thanks to £5,000,000 of National Heritage funding which restored its outstanding murals and added new wooden floors, underfloor heating and high tech lighting systems – it is now one of Edinburgh’s most popular venues for society dinners, launches, fashion shows and of course weddings.
The vast vaulted nave comfortably seats 300 guests or can be divided using a huge gold drape.
There is additional space in the gardens surrounding the church for a marquee and many couples opt for a garden drinks reception, while the main hall is prepared for a dramatic “reveal” for the evening reception.
Nearby St Mary’s Church is a popular option for Catholic couples who are then piped down Broughton Street to their reception at Mansfield Traquair. All other religious or humanist wedding ceremonies can take place within the building, surrounded by soft colours and murals of angels, or in the gardens.
