'Stuart and I got married at Portavadie Marina on the 2nd of October 2021 with Linsay MacPhail as our registrar. Linsay was excellent - from our initial conversation through to conducting our ceremony she provided an amazing service. Linsay was so knowledgeable, helping us to decide on the type of ceremony which would best suit us and made our ceremony so personal and relaxed. We had the best day and we were so glad Linsay could be a part of it! Thank you.'

'We received a first class service from Argyll and Bute Council registrars.

When planning our wedding, they could not have been more helpful in ensuring we got the service that we were looking for.  The process can be quite daunting but they supported us throughout the process from helping us complete the required paperwork, to providing ideas for the content of our service. As a result of Covid, our wedding plans changed a couple of times in the run up to our wedding. This was no problem for the registrars, in fact they supported us to make sure we had everything in place for our wedding.

In the run up to our wedding, Lorna was extremely helpful, ensuring she had all the details she required to make our ceremony perfect - which it was.

She delivered a perfect service, exactly the way we were looking for. Her communication was excellent throughout. We had asked for a relaxed ceremony, which is was with Lorna adapting as she went along so that it continued to fit the environment at the time, ensuring we felt comfortable and were able to enjoy the process.

We could not recommend Lorna and Argyll and Bute Registrars highly enough.'

'Stephanie and Samantha at Argyll and Bute Registrars (Dunoon and Bute) were brilliant from the moment we got in touch with them. After we chose to change our wedding plans due to family circumstances, Argyll and Bute Registrars quickly secured us with a date and kept us updated with everything we needed to know.

Stephanie guided us through the whole process, with respect and knowledge, always ensuring what we wanted was at the centre and was quick to answer any questions.

On the day, Stephanie arrived early and helped put the wedding party and guests at ease. She conducted our ceremony beautifully, with professionalism, sensitivity and lightness. Stephanie brought everyone together to fully participate in the wedding and this included our small niece and nephew finalising our ceremony, by 'signing' the official documents  - a lovely touch, welcomed by all.Our marriage certificate arrived very quickly too!

We would definitely recommend Stephanie as a registrar, and Argyll and Bute Registrars (especially Dunoon and Bute) to anyone choosing to get married in the area!'

'We cannot thank Alan our registrar for our Ceremony on the 21/08/21.

Everything went absolutely according to plan and the room and intimacy created for a small party was second to none. Alan was extremely helpful and nothing we asked was too much. Again thank you from the wee town of Falkirk. Mr & Mrs Duffy'

'I spoke to quite a few registrars before coming across Tobermory, and Andrew by fair provided the best customer service -even his email style is friendly and helpful!

Andrew actually explained to me that we didn't have to get married in the registry office on Mull, and this piece of info made it so much more special as we ended up having it on Calgary beach! He was super flexible and really seemed to care about us having a lovely ceremony. He also told me about Mull, the ferries to get there etc which was so helpful. At the ceremony he was really lovely and smiley - I didn't think I would care who the registrar was but I'm actually so happy we got Andrew!

Another great thing was in the first email he told us the documents we would need, even before we booked which was just a nice practical thing to do that helped us organised everything quickly.

Thank you Andrew!!'
