The wedding may then take place at any time within three months. ...

The wedding may then take place at any time within three months. On production of a registrar's certificate or certificates of due publication in respect of both parties, the couple, in the presence of the registrar and of two witnesses of the age of sixteen years or upwards, declare that they know of no legal impediment to their marriage and that they accept each other as husband and wife / partner . The registrar then issues a marriage certificate, in the form required by the Act, which is signed by the parties to the marriage, the registrar and the two witnesses.

A fee is payable to the registrar. The marriage is valid unless there is a legal impediment. If a party is ill or some other unforeseen or exceptional circumstances prevent one of the parties from giving the required notice or arranging for the publication of banns within the time required, a joint application may be made to the Sheriff for a licence. If a Sheriffs licence is obtained, the marriage must take place within ten days of it being granted.

If a Quaker wedding is desired and either one or both parties is a member of or an attender associated with the Society of Friends, notice of marriage must be given to the local registrar in the manner already described, and a certificate of due publication be obtained before the Quaker ceremony may take place. Before a Jewish ceremony may be performed in Scotland, the same procedure as for Quakers applies, except that both parties must be members of the Jewish faith. The Naval Marriages Act of 1908 applies to Scotland in exactly the same way as described previously for England and Wales. Parties divorced under Scottish law may marry again immediately, as the Scottish decree is absolute from the time that a divorce is granted.
