The marriage image also gives details of her age and her parents names. She was born in 1915 and her parents are Walter MacKay and Margaret Mackenzie.

I've just found the image of their marriage in 1915 and they are living at.......  11 New St, Inver.

Seems so odd to me to marry in their own home. Is this allowed in Scotland?
Best wishes HL

Hi Hampshire Lass.

Yes in my experience it was common to be married in your own home, or in the case of farm workers at the farm where they worked or at the Manse (minister's house). Church weddings were not as common for the ordinary working couple .

Looby :)

I'm not sure to be honest back then but I wouldn't doubt it.

Did it mention anything about a license & who conducted the marriage  ???

Should have added - I think as long as a Minister agreed and conducted the ceremony properly (banns posted etc etc ) you could get married at home or elsewhere.

The marriage for her parents was also in the bride's home address.

Both marriages were by banns and the United Free Church of Scotland is mentioned.

Love your avatar Looby  :)

Thank you both for your help  :)

That's wonderful Skoosh  :)

Will have a closer look at the links tomorrow but they both look very interesting.

Give your farm kitten/cat a stroke from me Looby.  :)
