Previously a Northern Lighthouse Board Ship, Fingal Hotel is Scotland's first floating boutique hotel and is a truly unique wedding venue. Permanently berthed in the historic Leith Port just two miles from Edinburgh city centre, this magnificent ship boasts everything you could need for an unforgettable wedding, from stunning photo opportunities to an iconic ambience you and your guests will remember forever.
Exclusive hire means the mighty Fingal is all yours for the day, and your dedicated event manager will be on hand to ensure everything flows smoothly. The Bridge, usually the intimate private dining room, is available to start your celebrations the evening before, with space for up to 12 to enjoy a sumptuous dinner. On the morning of your big day, the Bridge is the ideal space for the bridal party to prepare in, filled with natural light and offering outstanding waterside views.
For the ceremony, the Ballroom is an exquisite space boasting a double height ceiling, retractable skylight, and two curved grand staircases leading up to the gallery, the perfect way to make your entrance before you say your vows. Post ceremony, you and your guests can toast to a lifetime of happiness and enjoy canapes in the Lighthouse restaurant, a stunning space featuring art deco interiors, soft lighting and a copper bar. For the wedding dinner, return to the ballroom and enjoy a feast of the finest produce Scotland has to offer, from Orkney scallops to Cumbrian chicken, all lovingly prepared by the onboard chefs. Up to 60 guests can be seated for dinner in the ballroom or 110 for a drink's reception if preferred.
There are 21 boutique cabins on board for your guests, all adorned with nautical details. The master Skerryvore Suite is reserved for newlyweds, a beautiful room that boasts romantic features such as a private outdoor deck and free standing bath. The dedicated wedding team at Fingal are happy to recommend suppliers for those all-important details, from the flowers to the music, with the gallery in the Ballroom making the perfect entertainment platform as you dance the night away.
