St Conan’s Kirk offers an idyllic setting for a wedding, with stunning views to Loch Awe and an expansive interior that your guests will find both impressive and memorable. (An example of how the Kirk can look in photographs (opens in new TAB))

Currently we have a retired minister who can marry you or you may wish to have your own Minister to marry you. A wedding conducted by a minister must “ by law” be a faith based celebration. The Registrar and Humanist Celebrants cannot marry in St Conan’s.

To hire the church will be £400 this gives you exclusive use of the church an hour before the ceremony and an hour for the ceremony. This includes the hire of the church the heating and lighting and services of our minister. Any Travel expenses the minister may incur would be paid directly to them. Payment of the hire of the church should be paid a month prior to wedding date, an email will be sent with payment details. If for any reason there is a cancellation a full refund will be made.

Registration of Marriage (see www.argyll-bute.gov.uk)
You must register your marriage 29 days before date, if you are not a british citizen allow 6 to 8 weeks. If you need help contact our local  registrar in Oban. You must ensure you have the marriage schedule in order for you to marry.

Music – you may arrange to have your own music, we have an organist if available the fee would be £60, pipers available, charge may vary depending on travel. Payment to the organist and piper to be paid to them on the wedding day.

Flowers – they can be delivered to the church the morning of the wedding , Florists are available in oban or Inveraray or you may have your own.
