The green light for hotels reopening came at the perfect time for one couple as they celebrate their 15th anniversary back at their wedding venue.

Steven and Sarah Hicks got married at DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre on 15th July 2005. Exactly 15 years later, the happy couple was the hotel’s first returning guests.


To celebrate the milestone anniversary – traditionally marked with crystal – Mr and Mrs Hicks hired the same vintage car they travelled in 15 years ago for the journey to the hotel, where they were welcomed by a lone piper for a complimentary stay.

Sarah said:

“We always try to stay at the hotel to mark our anniversary each year and the fact the hotel is reopening again today, just adds to the special day and makes another amazing memory at the hotel for us.”

Serendipity and silver linings.
