So I’m American and I met my British SO when I was doing my graduate degree in England. A few months after we started dating, after all my classes were finished, we decided to throw caution to the wind and move to Scotland and thats where we stayed until my visa expired and I moved back to the US. Now that we’re getting engaged and starting to plan, we keep coming back to the idea of getting married in Scotland – Edinburgh to be exact. We love the city and since we lived just outside of it we ended up spending a lot of time there and sort of came into our own as a couple there. So we have a lot of wonderful memories and want to share some of our favorite places with our favorite people on our special day. Problem is – I’m American. And at some point after the wedding, maybe a few months and maybe up to a year later we’re looking to have me move to the UK permanently (timeline dependent on my current job).
So here’s my question- have any American Bees gotten married in Scotland? Or even know of someone who has? (Seriously, I’m desperate for information, I’ve gone on all the government websites and its not entirely clear) How did you manage it? Was it really difficult?
