Wedding tourism in Scotland is thriving and people can get married in their own way by a celebrant at the location of their choosing. Of all marriages registered in Scotland in 2011, nearly 25% were for couples where neither the bride nor groom lived in Scotland. Not only that, over 50% are now civil and humanist ceremonies compared to traditional religious services. Scotland is one of only six countries in the world where Humanist marriage ceremonies are legally conducted. They are recognised as legal in all countries in the world in the same way as other weddings are. Humanist weddings have the same legal status as civil and religious weddings as long as they are conducted by a Humanist Society Scotland celebrant, who has been authorised by the Registrar General of Scotland, and can take place anywhere ‘safe and dignified’.
Large Holiday Houses in Scotland are becoming a great venue to host your celebrations. Most can be booked as they are (whilst notifying the agency) if guest numbers do not exceed the accommodation number. Above this and consultation is required.
