Your guide to civil ceremonies in Argyll and Bute

Civil Marriage Ceremonies

Your big day in Argyll and Bute - getting started

Are your Registrars qualified? All of our registrars are very experienced and have participated in many ceremonies over the years. All new staff are given authority by the Registrar General and full training is provided by an experienced registrar before they can conduct a ceremony on their own. Why should I have a Registrar deliver my ceremony? Standing up in front of your friends and family can be a nerve wracking experience but Argyll and Bute Registrars will be on hand to put your mind at ease and help you every step of the way. We will guide you on the day making sure you know where to go and what you need to say. Is a Registrar ceremony not short and basic? A registrar ceremony is whatever you want it to be. We want to help you to make your big day a truly memorable occasion for you and your guests. The ceremony can be as long as you wish it to be, and ideas and suggestions can be discussed with the registrar beforehand. Our motto is ‘It is your day so we do it your way’ and our focus is on making it possible for couples to have the day they are dreaming of.

After the excitement of deciding to get married, there is a lot to do and think about. Our guide will help you get started.

Why choose a Registrar from Argyll and Bute?

Ask any newly married couple and they will tell you that organising a wedding can be stressful – there is so much to plan. Here in Argyll and Bute we want the run up to your big day to be an enjoyable experience, which is why our team of professional, experienced registrars are only too happy to help guide you through all the legal requirements. Not only will we help you to ensure that everything is completed as smoothly as possible, we will create a bespoke ceremony that is truly personal and unique to you. Unlike religious and non- belief ceremonies, there will be no need to attend the office to collect your marriage schedule prior to your wedding, or return it. This is included in our service, giving you one less thing to worry about. Do Registrars have any hidden cost? There are no hidden extra charges. Our fees include the processing of all your legal paperwork, personal ceremony, registrar’s travel and a certificate.

Where will you get married? The most important decision is where you want to get married. You can have your wedding at any registration office or venue of your choice; for example, a sandy beach, a local landmark or a hotel. There may be a requirement for you to provide public liability insurance and for us to visit the place where you plan to marry but we will discuss this with you at the time of your booking.
