About Channings

If there is one thing you want your wedding to be, it's romantic, and Channings in Edinburgh is a truly romantic venue for your very special day.

Your wedding day at Channings will also be enhanced with a touch of history. A fascinating connection links the famous Antarctic explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton, with Channings. From April 1904 until July 1910, Shackleton and his wife Emily lived at number 14 South Learmonth Gardens, which now occupies our events suites The Kingsleigh and Library.

The Kingsleigh and Library are elegant traditional Edwardian suites adorned with maritime memorabilia, which brings the Shackleton connection back to life. The sense of history creates a romantic atmosphere making them the ideal location to celebrate your religious, civil wedding or civil partnership in Scotland.

Your guests chairs can be positioned to create an aisle for you to walk up to meet your groom, ensuring you make the perfect entrance.

After the wedding ceremony, begin the celebrations with a Champagne reception in the classically styled lounges or out on the sun terrace. You will have plenty of photo opportunities, from your luxurious suite to our gorgeous country-house style terraced garden. We can even arrange access to the tranquil South Learmonth Gardens. Channings in Edinburgh offers a selection of backdrops which will capture the romance of your special day.

Return to the beautiful and intimate setting of The Kingsleigh suite for a wedding feast to remember. Alternatively if your party is larger (up to 50 guests) take exclusive use of Channings Conservatory - a stunning contemporary area which provides a bright and airily modern feel with clean lines and a summer ambience.

And at the end of your special day, prolong your experience by pampering yourself and your loved one with a night in one of our stunning Shackleton Suites.
