From 4th April 2022, the First Minister has announced the requirement in regulations for face coverings to be worn at marriage ceremonies and civil partnership registrations in indoor public places will be removed.
Final changes come into force 18th April 2022 - the legal requirement to wear face coverings in most indoor public spaces and on public transport will become guidance from 18th April.
However, it is strongly recommended face coverings continue to be worn where appropriate – including in indoor crowded spaces and on public transport - as members of the public are advised to carry on taking sensible precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
In our Council buildings, we would appreciate the continued use of face coverings while moving around the building.
We are currently accepting marriage and civil partnership notice forms and all supporting documents* by email. These should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can scan your marriage notice forms (M10s) or civil partnership notice forms (CP10s) or take a clear photograph of everything to email it. To obtain either M10s or CP10s, please visit the National Records of Scotland website.
When emailing in notice forms and supporting documents, please send these to us around 10-12 weeks prior to your proposed date of marriage or partnership to allow us time to process all your paperwork.
Due to unprecedented volumes of marriage notices being received we are asking celebrants to advise their couples to aim to provide a minimum of 10-12 weeks’ notice. Many couples are leaving their notices to the last minute (29 days) and this is causing an extra burden on the Registrars at this time. Due to increased workload demands these couples may find themselves in the position of having to delay their marriage.
Please remember to include all your supporting evidence with your notice form - many couples are only providing their birth certificates, please see list of supporting documents below and include these as well.
Can you please also remember to include your Witness Form when returning your documents? This is available within the Related Publications section near the bottom of the page.
Once you scan your paperwork, this will be passed to the appropriate office and a Registrar will then contact you to go over your paperwork, advise how to pay your fees and discuss the next stages.
If you would prefer to post your paperwork to us, please contact us at email@example.com and we will advise which office to post to, and what documents to send.
