Getting married in Scotland? What a great idea! Having conducted many numerous Humanist marriage ceremonies across the country we couldn’t agree more with your choice.

Perhaps you are thinking about getting married in Glasgow-well, you wouldn’t be the only one! Glasgow is host to many fabulous wedding venues and if you’re thinking about a Humanist ceremony then the opportunities really are endless!

Many come from afar to get married in Scotland, however there is no need to trek to the Highlands for a wonderful wedding location. You are spoiled for choice right here in the hub, Scotland’s largest city, and host of 2014 Commonwealth Games. Glasgow really does have a lot going for itself!

Glasgow is a fantastic city to tie the knot in and you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to every aspect of your big day!

First things first, Glasgow is a very popular destination to get wed in and many venues book up 18 months in advance. Typically the wedding venue is one of the first things a couple will decide on. If you’re planning a popular Glasgow venue then you’ll need to be organized.

Our celebrants have had the pleasure of conducting many unique and memorable Humanist marriage ceremonies across the city and the surrounding area. Last year celebrant Gillian Phillips conducted a Humanist Ceremony at Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s breathtaking House for an Art Lover. As a wedding venue House for an Art Lover is truly unique and only located 10 minutes from Glasgow City Centre.

The west end of Glasgow is another great location for a wedding. If you’re looking for an intimate setting, One Devonshire is ideal. It’s both stylish and romantic and a venue that our celebrants have the pleasure of conducting many ceremonies in.

Moving from the west end and closer to the city you could choose City Halls as your venue. City halls was one of the first venues in Glasgow built to accommodate large gatherings and is certainly a spectacular venue for a wedding! With a grand piano and a great staircase its grandeaur will not dissapoint.

If you’re not quite sure where you want to get married, be sure to do some research. It’s important that you find a venue that suits you and your partner.
