Getting Married in Scotland

You don't need to be resident in Scotland to be married here.

If you are subject to Immigration Control you should read the information provided by the Home Office carefully.

However, by law, both people wishing to marry in a civil or religious ceremony must submit marriage notice application forms to the district registrar.

You must submit these forms no earlier than three months, and no later than 29 days, before the date you want to marry on.

You can download the Marriage Notice Application Form and the Marriage in Scotland Guidance Notes below:

You can also get application forms from your local registration office or from the National Records of Scotland.

There is a fee for each marriage notice. You must pay this when submitting the notices.

You should also give the registrar the names and addresses of two witnesses who must be aged 16 or over.
