On average, 20 per cent of weddings held in Scotland every year are between non-residents, and it's easy to get married here with a surfeit of stunning venues and the helpful staff at Argyll & Bute Council.
From small family gatherings to weddings with a couple of hundred family and friends, Oban and Lorn is fortunate enough to have venues and facilities to suit all.

The stunning scenery, loved and recalled by many for its romantic nature, draws a variety of people from many different cultures and countries from around the world to choose the West Coast of Scotland for their wedding day or even their honeymoon destination.
Celebrate your love with wedding trends such as “retromony – to absent friends” which sees couples coming to Scotland to marry as a nod to their Scottish ancestry with Scottish themes and touches like thistles, tartan, whisky and ceilidhs. Some grooms with no Scottish roots still choose to don a kilt when getting married here!
