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.
To make an enquiry or book a wedding please contact the Bookings Co-ordinator on 07591740199 or email email@example.com for further information and dates available in the diary.
All denominations may marry in St Conan’s Kirk. Currently we have a retired minister who can marry you or you may wish to have your own minister marry you. A wedding conducted by a minister must, by law, be a faith-based celebration. If you want a non-faith wedding service contact the registrar’s office – they are extremely helpful.
Church hire costs £400. This gives you:
– exclusive use of the church for two hours (one hour before the ceremony, plus an hour for the ceremony itself)
– heating and lighting
– the services of our minister. Any travel expenses the minister may incur would be paid directly to him/her.
On confirmation of a date, an email will be sent with payment details. Payment is required at this time. If for any reason there is a cancellation a full refund will be made.
Registration of Marriage
Full information is available on the Argyll and Bute Council website. To summarise, you must register your marriage at least 29 days before the date. If you are a British citizen you should allow 6 to 8 weeks. If you need help contact the local registrar in Oban. You must ensure you have the marriage schedule in order for you to marry.
You may arrange to have your own music. We do have an organist (depending on availability, fee £60) and can recommend pipers (charges may vary depending on travel costs). Payment to the organist and piper would be made by you on the wedding day.
You can arrange for flowers to be delivered to the church on the morning of the wedding. Some suggested florists in Oban and Inveraray are listed below, or you can use your own.
If a relative or friend at the wedding is disabled in anyway, please let us know so that we can make their participation in your big day as easy as possible for them.
