If you love toffee, tartan and rich, crumbly shortbread, a wedding in Scotland could be for you. If the idea of a wedding by a loch, in the Highlands, or by an old castle appeals to you, then you should consider getting married in Scotland. Scotland has a varied landscape, including beaches with golden sands and historic cities such as Edinburgh. Consider Edinburgh Castle for a grand wedding in Scotland, or arranging a New Year’s Eve wedding to truly make the most of the famous Hogmanay celebrations. No matter how you picture your wedding, if you plan on getting married in Scotland you will find something to suit you.
If you want to get married in Scotland, you might be required to present a ‘Certificate of Non-Impediment’ in order to gain a marriage licence. Unfortunately Canada do not issue these, but you can get a ‘Statement In-Lieu of Certificate of Non-Impediment to Marriage Abroad’, which may be accepted. If not, you need to get a letter or statement from the Canadian Embassy to prove you are legally allowed to get married in Scotland. Your wedding in Scotland will be legally recognised in Canada as long as it is legally recognised in Scotland, and would have been legal had it happened in Canada.
