Fifteen Ninety Nine Glasgow – A place of History and possibilities for Weddings and Events

Fifteen Ninety Nine is a unique venue located within the main historic building of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, and a slice of Victorian elegance nestled in the heart of the city.

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting this incredible Venue and walking around, and soaking in its history and  I was enthralled with its grandeur and the possibilities it could bring for Weddings and Events.

The College is one of Glasgow’s most historical sites offering a collection of unique rooms, function suites and lecture theatres available to hire for a range of conferences, receptions and dining.

At Fifteen Ninety Nine you will be granted exclusive access to the whole building for your wedding, and that is where it gets really interesting.

Whilst you may want to hold your main reception in one of the larger rooms you have many more areas to do with as you see fit from childrens areas to breakout rooms to areas for suppliers, the choice is yours.

 

They have a selection of rooms which accommodate up to 100 people for a ceremony and wedding breakfast, and up to 150 for an evening reception.

With their licence to hold civil ceremonies, they can provide a complete wedding package in the most beautiful settings for you to exchange your vows.

 

The Princess Alexandra Room exudes elegance and beauty, with traditional period features and an added touch of glamour with its original chandeliers.

The room is named after Her Royal Highness, Princess Alexandra, who became the College’s first Royal Honorary Fellow in 1959. Her portrait hangs proudly in the room.

The College Hall is the largest suite and is one of the grandest.

Offering a unique and unforgettable experience for a city centre locations, original features include, Rennie Mackintosh stained glass windows, Victorian fireplaces, a sweeping mahogany staircase and spectacular chandeliers.

It was purpose built in 1892 as a venue for formal events and college ceremonies.

The Lower Library is a striking room, rich in history and traditional features.

The shelves currently hold books and artefacts dated back to late 19th and early 20th century.

The Lister Room, the Lock Room and the David Livingstone Room are also perfect for small events or used as part of your larger celebration.

 

As an example your day could begin with a ceremony in The Princess Alexandra Room, followed by an intimate champagne reception in The Lower Library.

Then celebrate in style with your wedding breakfast, prepared in house by Fifteen Ninety Nine’s  award-winning chef, in the magnificent College Hall.

To end, why not finish by dancing the night away under the magnificent glass ceilings with your loved ones.

To conclude the Venue has just a unique aura of special.

From an unassuming exterior it transports you Tardis like into a multitude of beautiful areas, and from the moment you arrive you can see the opportunities it offers.

Its grandeur bowls you over, and I urge you to take a look if looking for something just that little bit amazing for your Wedding or Event.
