    • Marriage Service

    • The Imam of Edinburgh Central Mosque is a registered celebrant with National Records of Scotland (NRS) and therefore can conduct Islamic Marriages which will be registered with NRS.

      Religious Marriage Service Conditions

      1. If you wish for your marriage to be conducted at Edinburgh Central Mosque, please contact the Mosque on [email protected]. We recommend you contact us 8-12 weeks prior to the intended date of the marriage.
      2. A marriage booking form will be sent to you which both parties to the marriage are required to complete and sign. This information will collect all relevant information from the parties and will assist in preparing the documentation to be submitted to NRS with the marriage notice.
      3. The Imam will usually arrange a meeting with both parties to get to know and discuss any questions they may have about the process or procedures.
      4. Provided all details and documents are in order, the couple will be able to “give notice” of the marriage by submitting the marriage notice forms to the registrar of the district.
      5. Notice must be given in the three-month period prior to the date of the marriage and NOT LATER than 29 days before that date.
      6. Once the registrar is satisfied that there is no legal impediment to the marriage, a Marriage Schedule is prepared. At least one of the parties to the marriage must attend personally at the registration office to collect the Marriage Schedule. It is the responsibility of the parties to the marriage to produce the Marriage Schedule to the Imam.
      7. Please note that the Imam WILL NOT solemnise a marriage without the Marriage Schedule being available at the time of the ceremony.
      8. The Mosque will issue a separate document as a record of any agreed conditions between the parties and the mahr.
