We will witness your marriage ceremony & notify the registrar directly of our details

Wee Wedding Days

Wee weddings are very relaxed. Once you are booked in, all you have to decide is the day & time of your marriage ceremony & make your arrangements directly with your celebrant & registrar. You can decide where your wedding will take place when you arrive.

During the winter months if you wish to be outside we suggest earlier in the day. The cottage filled with twinkly candles with the wood burning stove is also wonderfully romantic. During the summer months it is light until 11pm. If you have young children, we suggest a time that works well for all the family.

The Wee Wedding team will serve your delicious wedding breakfast platter where & when you want it.
