GIVING NOTICE - SCOTLAND ENGLAND CONFUSION

So I  just booked our appointment in London to give notice of our marriage. We live in London but are getting married in October in Ayrshire (Scotland). 

As I understand it in England:

- You have to give notice in the area you live in

- You can give notice up to 12 months in advance

The Future-Mrs-A pointed out that in Scotland you need to give notice:

- In the area, you are getting married in

- You can give notice up to 3 months in advance

 

I am going to call both our local council and the Ayrshire council. And I can still cancel our appointment. But I am utterly confused now. What law applies.

Has anyone experienced this? What did you do?
