Getting Married in Peebles
You can choose either a religious ceremony or a civil ceremony in Scotland. The Tontine Hotel can play host to the wedding itself if that’s your preference. If you’d prefer another location for your wedding ceremony, we can be ready to receive you and your wedding guests for your wedding meal and wedding reception.
Peebles Church Weddings
Contact the registrar who will prepare the marriage schedule for signing. You will need to return the signed forms to the registrar after the wedding ceremony so that he can register the marriage. Within Peebles, you can be married in either the St Peters Episcopalian Church or the Leckie Memorial Church of Scotland. Arrangements can also be made for weddings at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church or in Peebles Parish Church.
Civil Wedding Ceremony
Peebles registry office is located only 50m down the High street from the Tontine Hotel, in the old Quadrangle. A remarkably quiet and peaceful location with plenty of flowers in season. The registry office is a beautiful oak panelled room with furniture to match. The registrar is very helpful and will ensure your special day is a success. It is also possible to arrange a civil ceremony in the hotel itself, Neidpath Castle, the Cross Kirk or elsewhere.
At The Tontine Hotel, we don’t think your dream wedding needs an excessive budget. However, a beautiful venue and delicious food is a must. The day is about celebrating your love, with your friends and family, in style.
At The Tontine Hotel our Head Chef has designed a selection of delicious dishes from the finest, locally sourced Scottish ingredients, offering classic cuisine with a contemporary twist. We will work with you to select your very own bespoke menu of 3 starters, 3 mains, and 3 desserts to ensure that there is something on offer for everyone. Our meals also include tea or coffee and homemade fudge, along with personalised menus, place cards and a table plan to ensure everyone enjoys their meal. There’s also no need to worry about guests specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any allergies and we will just make sure our chef knows so he can take care of everything for you.
We’re delighted to offer a range of drinks packages to make the job of choosing for everyone that little bit easier, so that all of your guests can enjoy a drink while celebrating. Alternatively as we offer an extensive range of wines, spirits and liquors you’re welcome to get a little more creative and we can tailor your choice of tipple to suit you.
Your big day can require a lot of energy for both you and your guests, so after you’ve cut the cake, taken your first dance and everyone joins you on the dancefloor you may wish to offer evening guests a little something more to keep you going. We offer three hot evening buffets, for everyone to enjoy after a long day celebrating.
If you’ve planned time to let your photographer go all out and take lots of photos of your special day then why not offer your guests some of our handcrafted canapes as they arrive at the hotel while they wait.
