Trades Hall Glasgow Weddings

Nestled in Glasgow’s Merchant City, Trades Hall is an exquisitely beautiful historic venue that serves as the perfect backdrop for any occasion.

Originally built in 1794, it offers an idyllic setting for intimate gatherings as well as large weddings and celebrations for up to 250 attendees. This captivating and scenic venue has recently undergone renovations with state-of-the-art air conditioning and architectural lighting to ensure optimal comfort for you and your guests. With five unique function rooms available for individual or combined rental, you can enjoy exclusive access to the entire building. The Grand Hall, featuring ornate baroque chandeliers and elegant Victorian decor, is the crown jewel of Trades Hall.

Trades Hall is the home of The Trades House of Glasgow which has been serving as a registered charity (SC040548) since its establishment in 1605 and constantly provides invaluable support to the local community.

"Everything was absolutely perfect. Staff were on the ball with everything, the stationary they did for our table plan/seating was lovely and the entire place was absolutely gorgeous. Couldn’t have asked for a better time."
Siobhan and Callum (Married in October 2023)


"Best wedding venue I have ever attended.  The team at Trades Hall made our day so special, especially Elaine. Nothing was too much trouble and they took the stress out of the day for us both. The venue is stunning and such an amazing experience standing on the balcony for photographs. Very central location and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the wedding. Thank you Trades Hall."
Karen and Gordon (Married in September 2023)


"What an amazing place.  Attended a wedding. Everything about it was perfect."
Frances Byrne (September 2023)


"From the minute we made the enquiry to the doors opening on our ceremony we were so well treated and felt that we could place our absolute trust in Judy from Trades Hall.  Never did we feel under informed or in any way nervous that everything wouldn’t go absolutely perfectly.  We were always in touch about the final details, we utilised every inch of the building and completely to our wishes.  The building and staff were absolutely amazing. Big mention to Willie, who helped throughout the day and evening, nothing was a bother. From moving tables at our request, to flagging down taxis for the guests at the end of the night. The cost of hire of the building was more than reasonable in our opinion and our guests have continually commented on the amazing history that the building boasts, which held lots of interest on the day.  I can’t rave about this venue enough and will always be my first recommendation to anyone looking for the perfect place to say I do!"
Scott and Alex (married August 2023)


"From the planning stages until our wedding day we couldn’t fault Trades Hall. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and were very accommodating. We had a brilliant day, and had many compliments with regards to Trades Hall from our guests. Everyone was so impressed with the beautiful venue itself, the staff (their service in particular) and the meal. Thank you to Trades Hall for contributing to our memorable day."
Fiona Kerr & Brian Knight


“I can’t think of a better venue to have had our wedding. From start to finish, Laura and Elaine were so friendly, knowledgeable and professional, which made planning the day so easy. Not many of our guests had been to Trades Hall before and they were blown away by how amazing the venue was and that it was hidden away in the centre of town. I would highly recommend it, some of our favourite things were how accommodating the team was, Laura really helped us make it our own; the food was delicious and communication before, during and after was seamless. There was a point where we had forgotten our cake stand but they were going to lend us one! It was this attention and dedication that we were so grateful of. Thank you so much.”
Jo Simmons & Tam Ferguson


"Well, what can I say about the Trade Halls? The staff are fantastic the venue is outstanding. From starting our wedding journey to the aftercare I could not fault them at all. Laura the wedding co-ordinator was phenomenal always made sure that everything was sorted for you and there was no question or request that she wouldn't attempt to sort for you. If I could I would do it all over again. Cannot fault any of my day enough due to the care they provided."
Margaret Pollock & Kenneth Noble


"We had our wedding here on Saturday and it was the most perfect day. All of the staff went above and beyond to ensure all of our guests had a great day. Elaine has been amazing throughout the planning process which meant that it was a stress free experience for us. Louise was super on the day and throughout the evening in ensuring eveeything went smoothly. Our guests commented on the efficiency of the staff during the meal and everyone praised the chef for a beautiful dinner. Wish we could do it all again. Thank you to all of the staff, you were all wonderful"
Malcolm and Alyson


"We had our wedding and reception in the Trades Hall on the 13th of August and we couldn't have hoped for a more perfect day. Everything ran so smoothly and that's a credit to Elaine's organisation leading up to the day and the dedication of Elaine and the staff on the day. The meal was excellent and lots of our guests mentioned how much they had enjoyed it.

The venue itself is stunning, we knew it was the one as soon as we viewed it. But the fantastic service we received and the lovely people we worked with really made it the whole package. I would highly recommend!"
Steph and Harry


"We had our amazing wedding here on the 9th of July. From the moment we met Elaine and all the rest of the trades hall team we knew that we had found our perfect menu. They accommodated everything we wanted - even when I did get a bit bridezilla! The food was outstanding - everyone has commented on it, the whole day was flawless - we simply could not have asked for anything more from the team at trades hall. I'd highly recommend it!!"


“Dear Elaine, David and I wanted to thank you and all the team for everything you did to make our post wedding party such a success. We and our guests, had a fun time. The venue sells itself but the service the whole team provided added to the "wow" factor. Elaine your ability to translate our loose ideas into a successful evening speaks volumes about your skill and experience.”
David and Eileen


"Cris and I would like to thank you for making our wedding a huge success and the most enjoyable day and evening for our guests. We planned and organised this from Spain and didn’t even see The Trades Hall until three weeks before the Wedding. The pictures didn’t do it justice. Booking a wedding whilst living abroad was fairly daunting but all questions were answered quickly and efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble. Everyone made sure that the whole day went without a hitch and did this to perfection. We are truly grateful to all the staff at The Hall from the chefs and kitchen staff to the waiting staff who ensured that our friends and family were looked after. I can only say I can’t recommend them highly enough and wish you all the very best."
Aisling and Cris
