CREAR MARRIAGE CEREMONIES
Anyone who is free to get married, can legally marry at Crear!
Where ever you live in the world, you are welcome to marry in Scotland and are not required to be in residence prior to your marriage ceremony.
You may require a Marriage Visa to enter the UK.
Scotland offers you a wide choice of marriage celebrants and ceremonies which are legal and recognised worldwide including Civil, Humanist, Pagan, Interfaith, Catholic and Church of Scotland.
All celebrants with the exception of the Catholic Church, would be delighted to marry you outside.
BOOK YOUR MARRIAGE CELEBRANT
The Registrars conduct Civil Weddings. All other celebrants including Humanist, conduct what are classed as religious or belief weddings.
You are responsible for arranging your personal legal paperwork to obtain your marriage license with our local registrar and your marriage ceremony with the celebrant of your choice directly.
All payments are made directly to the Registrar and your celebrant of choice.
If you are having a religious or belief marriage, then you are required to collect the paperwork in person during office hours from Lochgilphead.
If you are having a civil marriage then the registrars will bring the paperwork with them on the day.

SMALL WEDDINGS HUMANIST CELEBRANTS
Gail Brack Registered Humanist Celebrant
My experiences have taught me to enjoy each day and the core values of Humanism are important to all of us as I believe we have one life and should endeavour to live it to the full, whilst being mindful of our responsibilities to each other and the planet we live on.
Aly Stewart Registered Humanist Celebrant
I was a Paramedic for the last 29 years. I have been a humanist celebrant now since 2016 and love every single second of it.
If you are looking for your day to be no fuss, relaxed, full of emotion, full of love and full of fun then this is what I also wish for.

Registered Pagan Celebrant
T 07850 694502
I am one of a handful of Celebrants in Scotland holding a licence from the National Records Office of Scotland to conduct a legally-binding Pagan wedding ceremony. These can be written to order to obtain an individual ceremony that reflects your requirements and spiritual beliefs and you don't have to follow a Pagan path to use my services.
There are many other very special celebrants we've witnessed marry couples at Crear that we can recommend to you. Please don't hesitate to be in touch if we can help at anytime.
