Hey everyone! Sorry it's been a while, but I am back! And after the Scottish Governments roadmap out of the lockdown being published yesterday we are another step closer to getting awesome weddings back on track too. So from what has been published thus far, Phase 2 will be when they allow small weddings, with larger weddings coming in on Phase 3. Now for those who don't want to wait any longer, Phase 2 will be the prime time for you to have a very intimate ceremony. And living in Scotland, it is the perfect place for this to happen!
Did you know that a humanist celebrant can conduct wedding ceremonies anywhere in Scotland, as long as permission has been granted by the landowner? This means a lot of the country is up for grabs for you to make your own for the day. Once you have the owner’s consent, and providing the Registrar has been notified of the location prior to the ceremony, a humanist celebrant can conduct a legal wedding in any location, inside or out. Apart from the freedom this gives you, what else do you gain? The obvious benefit is that if you get the weather and have a beautiful location, outdoors can be stunning, whether you’re on the shores of a loch or in the grounds of a stately home.
If you are looking to get hitched sooner rather than later, and would like to try and plan an intimate Phase 2 wedding (I know its a little harder not knowing the exact dates this will be possible but we will still do our best), then get in touch for your free initial virtual consultation. We can also give advice on finding your humanist for your special day. And for those hoping to hold out for Phase 3 and plan something a little larger, still drop us a message. We'd love to help!
