Hi, hoping someone can help and explain this properly to me. We are getting married in a hotel (in Scotland). We have a retired minister who is doing our ceremony for us for £250. Our wedding is in June 2018. I know we have to pay the marriage notice forms at £30 each and £10 for the marriage extract making a total of £70. Is there any other costs I’ve missed? Also if I have a minister doing my ceremony do I need anyone else at the ceremony? Sorry, hope this makes sense.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. I'm not sure as there needs to be a register that is signed. If you are marrying in a church then this is completed though them as the legal document. If you are marrying under a registrar then I believe you will need a registered registrar to perform the legal parts of the marriage. I'd contact the local registry office of where you intent to marry. I'm not sure if you would need to give notice on your local area as well as the area you intend to marry in. Again something to ask your local registry office. Sorry I'm not versed on the legal side of it but hope you can find some concrete answers. Good luck.

Difficult one as Scottish law can be different to English law. As Emma says, best check with the registrar.

Best thing to do is ring a registry office near where you are getting married and ask their advice.

If this is rev miller (lovely man) then we were married by him no you just need those bits. He is allowed to officiate the marriage and sign to confirm the marriage.

Either ring registry office to find out if registra is needed or asked the minister if he requires a registra present or of he can legally officiate the marriage. Otherwise I think the costs you've got are about right.
