Attendance at ceremonies:

From Monday 19th July all of Scotland moves to protection level O. This allows up to 200 people to attend a marriage or civil partnership ceremony.

Indoors in all venues physical distancing will reduce to 1 metre. Outdoors groups of up to 15 people do not have to socially distance but will need to keep 1metre distance from other people out with their group. Outdoor mingling and dancing in groups of up to 15 people is now permitted. Outdoors the couple can receive or greet guests and move between groups but should remain at 1 metre distance from other groups. Outdoors guests can also be served drinks and canapes without needing to be seated. Guidance for face coverings remains unchanged -

For ceremonies in our Registrars Offices, numbers allowed at ceremonies to enable us to safely accommodate those attending and to adhere to 1 metre distancing are as follows:

  • Cupar - 40
  • Dunfermline - Chambers 30; Court Room 40
  • Glenrothes - 30
  • Kirkcaldy - Wedding Room 12; Chambers 25
  • St Andrews Burgh Chambers - 25

Notice forms

We are currently accepting marriage and civil partnership notice forms and all supporting documents by email. These can be emailed to

You can scan your marriage notice forms (M10s) or civil partnership notice forms (CP10s) or take a clear photograph of everything to email it. When emailing in documents, please let us know which office you would prefer to deal with - Cupar, Dunfermline, Glenrothes or Kirkcaldy. If you are not being married by a Registrar, it will be whichever office you live nearest to or is most convenient for you to get to. Once you scan your paperwork, this will be passed to the appropriate office and a Registrar will then contact you to go over your paperwork, take payment of fees over the phone and discuss the next stages.

If you would prefer to post your paperwork to us, please post to Cupar, Dunfermline, Glenrothes or Kirkcaldy (see addresses at links below).
