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?
