Ministers of the Church of Scotland are authorised to perform marriages. The Church does not regard marriage as a sacrament and ministers are free to marry people who are not members of the Church of Scotland. However, if neither the bride nor groom is a member of the Church, the first approach should be to minister of the parish in which one or other of them resides.
In certain circumstances the Church of Scotland permits the re-marriage of divorced people in church.
Ministers of the Church of Scotland can also conduct blessing ceremonies for civil marriages (those which were legally conducted by a registrar and not in a church).
The couple seeking a blessing on their marriage stand together at the front of the church, and may be attended by friends.
If you consider Logie Kirk as a place where you have a spiritual home, and therefore would like your wedding to be conducted at the Kirk, please contact the Minister. Alternatively you may contact the Kirk’s Auxiliary Minister.
Wedding fees (in line with Church of Scotland policy) are as follows:
Organist: £100 (£200 if a video and/or audio cassette recording is being taken)
Church Officer: £80
