Congratulations!  – at St Andrews Lhanbryd and Urquhart  we are delighted that you want God to be part of your special day. Breda, the minister will be glad to speak to you about the possibility of getting married in the Church.

Weddings are special to ourselves as a congregation because we believe the Love and commitment between husband and wife should be blessed from the start in front of family and friend benefits from being Blessed by God.

If you live within our parish, or have a connection with our church  – we would be delighted if you choose to share your special day with us.  Those living outside our boundaries  after receiving consent from their own Parish minister may also marry in our church.
