GETTING MARRIED IN SCOTLAND?

Congratulations! Holding your ceremony in Scotland gives you complete choice for the location, content and style of your ceremony, and we will celebrate YOU, YOUR LOVE, and YOUR LIFE together, in whatever ways are most meaningful for you.  Fáilte!  Welcome to our website which tells you everything you need to know about weddings and relationship related ceremony such as elopements, handfasting and vow renewals.

What kind of ceremony would you like?

Whether you choose to legally marry with family and friends present, elope just the two of you, renew your vows, handfast or go green, you can enjoy as traditional or alternative a format of ceremony as you wish, and we assure you of a prompt, helpful and friendly response at all times. 

You have freedom!

William Wallace famously said “they’ll never take our freedom!” and Scotland retains its rebellious streak giving you the freedom to hold your ceremony HOW you’d like, and WHERE you’d like.  So we’re interested to hear your ideas, or if you haven't got that far yet, we can suggest ideas, and we’ll do our utmost to guide you and accommodate your wants and wishes.

Flexible wedding ceremony

Your ceremony can take place indoors or outdoors at the location of your choice, and you can include those elements in your ceremony that are personal and fitting for you – whether religious, spiritual, mixed faith, inclusive, humanist or non-religious - you choose the wording, ritual and music, and of course personal or traditional vows. This applies whether you opt to have your ceremony be legally binding or not.  

You only need one legal ceremony 

For opposite sex marriage you only need to have the one ceremony held by us in Scotland for it to be legally recognized the world over.  For same sex marriage you only need to have the one ceremony held by us in Scotland for it be legally recognized by countries which recognize same sex marriage.  We have a same sex page on this website and also a dedicated LGBT+ website.

We’re happy to answer your questions

For information about ceremony please look at 'Wedding Overview' for weddings with guests, 'Handfastings' for any kind of hand tying, 'Weddings for Two' for elopements, and 'Vow Renewals' for any kind of re-dedication of your relationship. If you would like to know more about us personally, please look at the 'About Us' page.  We're here to help and make your dreams come true, so please drop us a line or give us a call.  Enjoy looking at the site!
