Types of marriage in Scotland
You can be married in either of two ways in Scotland - by a civil or a religious ceremony:
- Civil marriage
- This ceremony may take place in a registration office or at any place mutually agreed between the couple and the local registration authority, other than religious premises.
- Religious marriage (which includes other belief systems)
- This ceremony can be solemnised only by a minister, clergyman, pastor, priest or other person authorised to do so under the Marriage (Scotland) Act 1977.
