All weddings in Scotland require some legal paperwork. For Crear Couples this is processed by the local Registration office in Lochgilphead. Please contact our local Registrar, Shona Brechin directly.
T 01546 604515
The earliest your paperwork can be submitted is 3 months before the date of your wedding, however please do not leave it any later than 4 weeks before. Once your Marriage Notices are submitted & processed, a Marriage Schedule is produced. This is the document you sign as part of the marriage ceremony.
If you are having a civil marriage then the registrars will bring the paperwork with them on the day. If you are having a religious marriage then you are required to collect the paperwork in person during office hours from Lochgilphead.
