Getting Married in the Scottish Highlands

If you are looking at this section, we can only assume you’re thinking of getting married or celebrating the success of your marriage by renewing your vows; either way – Congratulations!

Getting married, eloping, handfasting or renewing your vows in Scotland are all wonderful experiences and unlike some other parts of the UK, you can get legally married almost anywhere giving you access to the great outdoors, as well as some amazing historic and iconic indoor places!

You have the usual option of a hotel, church or registry office, but if you knew you had further choices, would you prefer to be wed on a beach, up a lighthouse, on a boat on one of The Highlands’ famous lochs, in a castle, looking down on the world from the top of a hill?  Really the only restriction is your imagination – and whether the celebrant is happy to hike or don a wet suit (to join you with a post ceremony dip of course!).

If you decide to be legally married you can choose either a ‘religious or belief’ ceremony held by a celebrant or minister, or a ‘civil’ wedding ceremony held by a registrar.  Either way you must make an advance application to marry via the registrar’s office which covers the location where you have chosen to marry.  Everything you could possibly need to know about the legality can be found here: Getting Married in Scotland

Whatever form your happy day takes, 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.  You could enlist the help of a wedding planner and have them arrange everything for you, or you could be hands on and DIY with every step – the choice is yours.

Whether a bride wears a wedding dress, or jeans and wellies, it’s not a legal necessity for her 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 ceremony and celebration (post a photo on our Facebook page!) and why not check out some of our accommodation for the honeymoon or extended anniversary stay?!
