We provide a consistent range of services throughout Aberdeenshire including:

We may only accept marriage notices for ceremonies taking place within Aberdeenshire. Please refer to our marriage section for further details.

You must make an appointment to see a Registrar. Without one, we cannot guarantee availability to assist with your enquiry. Appointments are usually available same day or next day.
