Episcopal Clergy are licensed to conduct weddings in their Churches (and under some circumstances in other places). If you are considering getting married in one of our churches, please get in touch via the details in our Contact Details page.
Once you’ve made contact, we can have a conversation about what kind of wedding you’re looking for. Weddings in the Scottish Episcopal Church are tailored to the couple who are getting married and you should expect expect to have a significant involvement in planning the service, including choosing which prayers, readings and vows are used. The service itself will be based around the resources in the Scottish Episcopal Church’s Marriage Liturgy, which is very flexible and allows for a variety of different approaches.
People sometimes ask whether they can get married in church if they have been married before. The short answer is that a proportion of the people who get married in the Scottish Episcopal Church have been married before. We are able to marry couples where one or both have been married before provided the bishop consents. We would be happy to discuss this if it applies to you.
Fuller details of the necessary procedures of both the Church and Civil authorities are to be found in Getting Married: the practical details.
