For generations people have come to church to be married – sometimes as members of the congregation but often because they have a local connection or just want to choose abeautiful setting and St Cuthbert’s is a very beautiful Church with attractive grounds.
A Church Wedding is a very special occasion and needn’t be any more expensive than at any other location. At St Cuthbert’s, we will be pleased to help you plan the big day.
We offer, and can give assistance with, bells, organ, choir, flowers and the order of service. The Scottish Episcopal Church encourages couples to choose the form of words they will use so that each Wedding is tailor made for themselves.

To clarify a few points:
You do not have to be a member of the church to get married here, all are welcome, your marriage is as legally binding as in a registry office.
If you have been married before and are divorced, the clergy can marry you with the bishop’s permission (this is usually granted). We are not at present allowed to marry same-sex partners.
