Fettes College is a truly magical building and forms part of Edinburgh’s beautiful and impressive historic skyline. The Callover Hall, with its stone floors, wood panelling, high ceilings, marble fireplace and statues and imposing staircase flanked by hand-carved wooden statues leading up to the 19th century French Gothic-style chapel offers up to 130 guests the perfect setting to mingle and enjoy a glass of champagne after your ceremony.
The old library is the ideal location for the happy couple to have their photographs taken. This majestic room offers a truly magical feel with its floor-to-ceiling hand-carved book shelves, barley sugar pillars, 18th & 19th century books and imposing marble fireplace, above which is the coat of arms of Sir William Fettes, all looking out over Edinburgh’s stunning skyline and castle.
At the heart of Fettes College, the chapel is styled on French Gothic architecture and features a hammer beam ceiling, similar to that in the Old Parliament Hall. Beautiful in its simplicity with wooden pews and rubble walls, the chapel invites the newlyweds-to-be the opportunity to personalise the space to reflect their individual tastes. The large stained glass windows add the finishing touches to this traditional yet intimate space.
If you choose a chapel only wedding with a drinks reception, your guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of champagne and soak up the atmosphere within the Callover Hall and the frontage of the Bryce building while you have your photographs taken.
Your photographer will whisk you off to the Headmaster’s private garden, which features sculpted hedges, an ornamental sundial and fantastic views of the west wing of the college rarely seen by the general public, and capture many special moments within our stunning grounds.
Fettes College offers numerous hidden gems within its grounds to act as backdrops to your wedding photographs. Special moments deserve unique settings and the college offers both indoor and outdoor areas for you to create memories that last a lifetime. From the green walk to the cloisters and from the Queen’s Lawn to the Bryce building’s main staircase, the grandeur of the grounds and buildings offer an impressive canvas for your wedding photographs.
Fettes College offers secure private parking within its grounds for the duration of the ceremony. Guests also have the option of leaving their car overnight upon request.
