Weddings

We welcome enquiries from couples who wish to marry within the liberal pluralist Unitarian tradition.

We were actively involved in lobbying the Scottish government to allow same-sex couples Equal Marriage rights and welcome same-sex couples to be married in our church, and in other places by our lay celebrant.

The form and content of a marriage service is usually devised by our lay celebrant working together with the couple concerned according to the couple's needs and wishes, though here there are a few legal requirements. The service may take place in venues other than our church. Unitarian ministers and lay celebrants regularly conduct marriage ceremonies where one or both of the parties are divorcees. Unitarians are virtually unique in devising personalised ceremonies in cases where the couple are from mixed faith backgrounds (e.g. Christian and Jewish) or none.
