Lochgilphead Testimonial
From the minute we first spoke to Lorna about our wee wedding plans, she was consistently brilliant and always responded quickly to every email or phone message. Nothing was ever too much trouble in the 12 month run-up to our special day. Supremely professional and inspiring confidence throughout, by the time of our ceremony, which was also my (the bride) birthday, it felt like we were being married by an old friend! She calmed our nerves, was warm and friendly and added to the relaxed and happy feel of our day. The wedding party loved her too and especially for her help and guidance with the Oathing Stone and Hand Fasting ceremonies we had chosen; lovely touches to make the occasion even more memorable. It was certainly a birthday to treasure and Lorna was a big part of making it so special. We can't thank her or recommend her highly enough. Sara & Chris

Helensburgh Testimonial
From start to finish Jane MacGregor helped us through the process with so much ease. Because of COVID 19 we had to change our date 4 times and Jane made sure it was no bother. On the day of our wedding Jane made sure myself and my husband was calm and relaxed (even through the tears). Thank you so much Jane we loved our day and I am half you were apart of it.

Oban Testimonial
We cannot thank Alan our registrar for our Ceremony on the 21/08/21. Everything went absolutely according to plan and the room and intimacy created for a small party was second to none. Alan was extremely helpful and nothing we asked was too much. Again thank you from the wee town of Falkirk. Mr & Mrs Duffy

Stephanie was amazing from beginning to end guiding us through every stage of the wedding process. On the day she was like part of the family, very relaxed, involved but still super professional. Thank you so much Stephanie.

Mull Testimonial
'I spoke to quite a few registrars before coming across Tobermory, and Andrew by fair provided the best customer service -even his email style is friendly and helpful! Andrew actually explained to me that we didn't have to get married in the registry office on Mull, and this piece of info made it so much more special as we ended up having it on Calgary beach! He was super flexible and really seemed to care about us having a lovely ceremony. He also told me about Mull, the ferries to get there etc which was so helpful. At the ceremony he was really lovely and smiley - I didn't think I would care who the registrar was but I'm actually so happy we got Andrew! Another great thing was in the first email he told us the documents we would need, even before we booked which was just a nice practical thing to do that helped us organised everything quickly.'

What is your most memorable wedding?

If you were to ask each Registrar I am sure they will all have a ceremony that is memorable. The people that we meet always have an impact on our ceremonies and we get to meet some amazing people.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Research your options for what you can include in your ceremony, ask the Registrar for guidance or ideas. Also speak to your family and friends to see if they want to take part, someone may want to do a reading or participate with the handfasting ceremony.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

During COVID restrictions when couples couldn’t have all the guests or family at a ceremony. Our registrars got loved ones to email messages in as a surprise for the couple during the service. The messages where them printed into a booklet for the couple to keep.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

As soon as a couple make contact and wish to book we add them to our diary and explain the paperwork/ceremony process to them. We take a deposit to secure the booking and answer any questions they may have. Once they are within 3 months of the big day we make contact to guide them through organising their paperwork and to start planning how they would like their ceremony to flow. We would then keep in regular contact to discuss the ceremony and the plans of the day.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?

One couple decided to arrange their marriage as a surprise for their guests, they had all gathered for a party and the couple walked in wearing a wedding dress and kilt. Was amazing being able to help them make this possible.

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

By keeping in contact with the couple answering all the questions in as much details as possible. Having discussions over the phone/face to face/by email or even Zoom so that we can get to know each other well and have the plans for the day well organised.

What do you love most about your job?

Research your options for what you can include in your ceremony, ask the Registrar for guidance or ideas. Also speak to your family and friends to see if they want to take part, someone may want to do a reading or participate with the handfasting ceremony.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

When the couple come together to be married at the ceremony, see one another for the first time.
