St Mary’s Cathedral is known for its magnificent weddings — organs, choirs, gorgeous liturgy, bells, whistles, and that one time, when there was a trained owl. The first public same-sex blessing of a civil partnership was conducted in the building 2008, and when it became possible to conduct same-sex weddings in Scottish Episcopal Churches in September 2017 St Mary’s was amongst the first of the churches to do so. We are also happy to conduct marriages of opposite-sex couples in the Cathedral, and they are every bit as fabulous.
These badges are sometimes given out by the celebrant to the newly married couple after their service.
