Scotland is a truly beautiful place. From its Lochs to its language, there are so many reasons to marry here. Here are a few that we’ve discovered…
You are so lucky if you’re considering marrying in this beautiful part of the world. Scotland is naturally incredible filled with amazing wedding venues, scenes, rich history and delicious food (not to mention castles!).
The West Coast
The west coast of Scotland is a site to behold. Argyll and the Isles is characterised by long sea lochs, rugged mountains and 4,000 miles of coastline. There are 60 medieval castles in this part of Scotland and dozens of islands scattered off the coast. Some of the castles on this part of the coast host weddings! Make sure to check out wedding venues in Scotland.
Heartwarming, Fresh Food
Scotland is known for its fresh seafood and cold weather. That’s why its heartwarming food is some of the best in the country, full of fresh, flavourful ingredients sourced locally. Your catering will be top notch if you choose to marry in Scotland!
Imagine wandering through the woodland with your photographer and new husband and getting photos of you both in front of deer, bunnies and all the other wildlife native to Scotland? Then you really will feel like a princess! Highland cattle are also really special and beautiful creatures.
Great for Viking Enthusiasts
So every year, the Shetlands host ‘Up Helly Aa’ which is an amazing celebration that gets thousands of people trotting down the streets in full Viking regalia, long boats, fire lit torches, the lot. Why not have your wedding here with a Viking twist? Scotland’s setting is also perfect for it!
Ok, so this may sound like a strange positive. Everyone knows the weather in Scotland isn’t the best. But it’s because it’s more predictable than the rest of the UK – probably rainy – that makes it a great asset. Fully embrace the weather and great stormy weather photos!
For Couples into Comedy
Scots are funny. Don’t believe us? Head to the Fringe Festival! If you’re a couple who are up for a laugh and simply want a good time on your wedding day, Scotland is definitely the place.
And Great Groom Outfits
And finally, if you’re getting married in Scotland, it’s only right that your groom adorns a kilt and perhaps the rest of the groomsmen too! It’s so great that the entirety of Scotland has their own fashion that is unlike anywhere else in the country. Embrace it!
