If you’re struggling to find classical decor in a city venue, you might want to check out Fifteen Ninety Nine at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow.
Nestled in a beautiful building on St Vincent Street, this hidden gem boasts a number of grand rooms sure to impress even the fussiest of relatives. The College Hall, with its high ceiling, Victorian fireplace and portraits dating back to 1599, would be a fine backdrop to your first entrance as a married couple. If you’re after a more intimate setting, then The Lower Library might be up your street: lined with bookshelves containing antique medical textbooks, the library is an ideal locale for your drinks reception.
1599 understands that there is no one-size-fits-all wedding, and so it has a variety of wedding packages on offer to suit different tastes and budgets. For smaller weddings, its ‘Wee’ package includes hire of the ceremony and reception room and will accommodate up to 30 guests, setting you back just £500. Flexible food and drinks packages are also available to add-on so that you can create the day you’ve always dreamed of.
On the other end of the scale, its Exclusive package, priced at £2,099, has capacity for up to 150 guests and will give you exclusive hire of the Royal College, as well as access to the Blythswood Square Gardens for photographs, and discounted rates for local wedding suppliers.
All packages also include access to an experienced wedding co-ordinator, so you’ll always have someone to guide you through the stressful planning process and help you get the most out of this luxurious venue.
1599 might be particularly appealing if you’re a foodie, as it has an award-winning chef on hand to help craft the perfect menu for your special day. Focusing on locally sourced seasonal produce, the array of dishes on offer are sure to tantalise the tastebuds of your guests, and leave everyone asking for more.
