Tips For the Scottish Bride and Groom

Scotland is unique in allowing the wedding ceremony to take place almost anywhere you like – as it’s the person conducting the ceremony rather that the location that’s important

This is because under Scot’s law it is not the place of marriage that is important but the qualifications of the person who conducts the ceremony. So unlike anywhere else in the world when it comes to where you say ‘I do’ you can opt for a ceremony beside a loch, in a romantic castle, on a remote island or on top of a mountain – the choice is yours.

Getting married in Scotland is also an option even if you don’t live there. In fact Scotland is the only part of the UK that doesn’t have a residency requirement, it is, however, necessary that one half of the couple meet with the register seven days before the wedding. If one of the partner’s lives in Scotland and the other lives in England or Wales, there is no need for the person living across the border, to travel to Scotland prior to the wedding chinese mail order brides.
