Yes. Any couple intending marriage had to be proclaimed three times from the pulpit in the parish kirk (though there were ways round this), and if there were no objections, the wedding could then take place.

Edinburgh, 20th February 1854. Proclaimed 19th February 1854. Patrick McMullin, Seaman on Board the Victoria Steam Ship, and Mary Ann McGill, lately residing at No 11 Greenside Street, Greenside Parish, daughter of Peter McGill, Porter, Granton, have been Three times Proclaimed, in Order to Marriage, in the Parish Church of Greenside, and no objections have been offered. Married at Leith on the 28th day of February 1854 by the Rev Archibald Macdonald Roman Catholic Clergyman.

You didn't really need a transcription of that - it is beautifully written and really easy to read :)
