If you are looking at this section, we can only assume you’re thinking of getting married – Congratulations!

Getting married in Scotland is a wonderful experience and unlike the rest of the UK, you can get married almost anywhere! On a beach, in a lighthouse, at a castle, under water, on top of a hill – the only restriction is your imagination – and whether the celebrant is happy to hike or don a wet suit of course!

Whether you want a religious, civil or humanist wedding, there are forms to be completed via the Registrar’s Office. Everything you could possibly need to know can be found here: Getting Married in Scotland

Whatever form your happy day takes, be it a church, a private house or castle or an unusual location, you will require the use of some wedding service professionals.  We are bringing together a selection of suppliers to make your arrangements as stress-free as possible. Book a large house and have them arrange everything or personalise every step – the choice is yours. (It’s not a legal necessity for the groom to wear a kilt – but if he does – it is definitely the done thing to be a “True Scotsman”!

We hope you have the most amazing day (post a photo on our Facebook page!) and why not check out some of our accommodation for the honeymoon!
