Marriage ceremonies

You can be married at many beautiful venues throughout Fife and all civil marriage ceremonies are conducted by our friendly and professional registrars. Civil ceremonies can take place in a variety of venues ranging from historic buildings, fairytale castles, elegant mansion houses, to stylish and well designed Registrar's own venues. In addition, you can also request a setting of your own choice, for example in your own home or garden, on the beach or a place that holds special memories for you.

You don't need to be resident in Scotland to be married here, which makes it a lot easier for overseas visitors. There are, however, specific legal requirements which must be met before any marriage can proceed.

To obtain the legal forms you need - Marriage Notice forms (M10) - and full information on the legal side of marriage in Scotland, you should contact any registrar by emailing fife.registrars@fife.gov.uk or go to the National Records of Scotland website: www.nrscotland.gov.uk

In Fife we take bookings for civil ceremonies many years in advance, so please get in touch as quickly as possible if you want to book a particular day or time.  This is especially important if you want to be married at the week-end, or in the busy Spring and Summer periods.  Please complete the marriage e-form to assist the registrar with your enquiry

Without all the legal preliminaries to marriage being met, your wedding cannot go ahead, so please contact us as soon as you decide that you want to get married in Fife!
