Scotland has been a favourite holiday destination for many
years. And now it has a growing reputation as a favourite
destination for couples from around the world to tie the knot.
Here are the eleven main reasons:-
1 There are no residency requirements. Couples from anywhere
in the world can get married in Scotland. You don't have to live
here. You don't need UK citizenship. All you have to do is
complete the necessary legal formalities and you can marry
within 24 hours of arriving here.
2 You can get married anywhere - absolutely anywhere - in
the country. On a beach, in a castle, up a mountain, in a hotel,
by a loch… your choices are limitless.
3 You can opt for a civil or a religious ceremony. The civil
ceremony is more restrictive as regards your choice of venue
because they have to be licensed by the local authority. But
there are now so many venues licensed for civil ceremonies that,
in practice, you will always find somewhere to match your dream.
4 A religious ceremony, conducted by a minister can be held
anywhere. I have known them to be held on boats, in lighthouses
and even on cliff-tops! Obliging and occasionally daring
ministers can always be found.

including certain officers of the Humanist Society.
6 The choice of venues is staggering. From sophisticated
Glasgow to traditional Edinburgh; from the rugged, breathtaking
beauty of the Highlands to the Ayrshire coast; from imposing
castle to pretty little village church, Scotland has it all.
7 You can fly into Glasgow, Prestwick, Edinburgh, Aberdeen or
Inverness airports and be close to your wedding venue from the
8 So many people around the world have Scottish ancestry and
love to search out their roots.
9 What better clothes to wear at your ceremony than the kilt,
made especially for you in your own tartan.
10 And what better accompaniment as the bride enters the wedding
venue than a Highland wedding tune played on bagpipes!
11 And after the ceremony, what better way to toast the health
of the bride and groom than with a single malt whisky from a
Scottish quaich in the country where it is made!
The truth is, there are lots of reasons for you to hold your
wedding ceremony in Scotland. If you are in love, Scotland is
the place for you. If you believe in romance, Scotland is the
place for you. If you long for the mystery of the lochs, the
glens, the castles and the mountains, Scotland is the place for
you. Charlie Taylor is one of the founders of Highland Country
