The Signet Library


What a year 2018 has been! From beautiful classic weddings to modern and extravagant events and the comeback of the Pommery Bar, it was a busy year full of exciting moments and we loved every moment of it, so wanted to share some of our highlights…

Biggest event of the year

We have designed and worked with amazing clients this year. In August we had the pleasure of hosting an event for Zeal Experiential, a boutique experiential agency, passionate about creating live events. The evening commenced with a street food reception hosted by an international client, who had guests from all over the world. Guests were treated to some Scottish entertainment on arrival. This was followed by a delectable menu designed by our talented chefs, who were inspired by the countries who took part in the Tattoo including Sweden, Norway, Thailand and Mexico.

The event was designed to be modern in a classic space, so the furniture was mostly clear ghost furniture which reflected the different colours of uplighting around the room. The night finished with the guests being escorted up to the Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle for an evening performance.

Favourite moment of the year

August was a special month for us as we re-launched the wonderful Pommery Bar! The Upper Library was transformed into a modern art installation with an amazing laser show and atmospheric ambiance by the famous Chris Levine of Saatchi Galleries. Our guests were able to enjoy Pommery Champagne accompanied with delicious sharing seafood, meat and cheese platters. The Pommery Bar was the perfect place to spend time away from the busy festival!

Signet Library Weddings

Here at the Signet Library we love weddings, so of course we couldn’t choose our favourite one, as we loved every single one of them! 2018 has been bursting full with lots of beautiful weddings, fantastic couples, gorgeous set-ups and delicious food! One of our trusted suppliers, Planet Flowers helped us create one of the most stunning set-ups we have seen this year.

One of our summer couples chose to give their wedding a modern and unique touch by having a geometric theme with beautiful rose gold and succulent details, which really worked with and complemented the classic look of the Upper Library.  

A classic theme that has been very popular among couples this year is the ‘book and library’ theme. From cascading book pages to intricate table plans and photo booth backdrops, we have loved seeing how couples use the setting of the Signet Library as part of their wedding theme!

The Signet Library is undoubtedly a stunning venue for weddings during any season, but our winter weddings this year have been simply beautiful! In December we worked with Planet Flowers to design yet another incredible set-up which involved three archways with hanging candles leading the bride down the aisle. We also created a fantastic dessert station on our Upper Landing table which the guests absolutely loved!

The Signet Library team wishes you all the best for the New Year and we’re looking forward to all the exciting events and weddings that 2019 has to offer!
