The Waterfront is Archerfield’s contemporary coastal wedding venue situated above the beach, with awe-inspiring sea views and fantastic photo opportunities.

One of East Lothian’s largest wedding venues, you can invite up to 200 guests for a seated wedding breakfast; there’s a big dance floor, sophisticated lighting system and a star-twinkling ceiling – the rest is up to you.
If you’re celebrating at The Waterfront you have three options for your ceremony: you can choose to say your vows at Archerfield House; in a specially set up marquee at The Waterfront (additional cost); or in one of East Lothian’s picturesque parish churches.

- Dual venue potential with Archerfield House
Sometimes couples find it hard to choose between the classic grandeur of Archerfield House with all its palatial backdrops and historic elegance, and the coastal setting of The Waterfront which can be completely styled to your own taste and theme and which has a bigger capacity for seated dining.
That’s where our paired venues option comes in: for example, you can take Archerfield House exclusively with its 15 double en suite bedrooms and hold your ceremony there for up to 120 people in the hall or dining room followed by a drinks reception in the principal room. Then we can swiftly transport all your guests down to The Waterfront for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations for up to 200 guests.
Our dedicated wedding team are past masters at creating the ideal fit for your dream wedding depending on your vision for the day and the guest list numbers, so get in touch to have a chat and find out if using not one, but two dream Scottish venues could work for you.
