Scottish Wedding - brought to you by Scotland's National Tourism Organisation

Laws & Traditions

Scottish Law
One of the greatest reasons to get married in Scotland is that you can exchange your vows practically anywhere you want. Why not say 'I do' at a wedding in a romantic glen, aboard a cruiser on a loch, on the shore of a sandy beach or even at the top of Arthur's Seat! The minister, priest, celebrant or clergyman carries a licence that means you can choose your venue, no matter how wild or romantic!

If you prefer the ceremony to be indoors, Scotland has plenty of potential weddings on offer. From ancient castles to traditional village halls, the possibilities are endless! Whatever you want to make of it, there's a venue in Scotland that's bound to surprise and inspire you.
