If you intend to marry in Scotland you can have a civil or a religious marriage.
A civil marriage is conducted by a Registrar and religious marriage is conducted by a clergyman, pastor, priest, minister or other religious person.
Whether you chose a civil or religious marriage the legal requirements remain the same. Both parties are required by law to complete and sign marriage notice forms and submit them to the Registrar in whose district the marriage is to take place.
