The marriages might not have taken place in a church at all, C of S weddings generally took place at the manse or a family home.

ScotlandsPeople gives the area but not where the ceremony took place sadly.

Only two sacraments in the C of S, baptism & communion. Anent marriage, the banns were called in the parish kirk/kirks & cautioner's put up a few bob which was forfeit if the intended nuptials proved frivolous or dodgy!
 The OPR's are often incomplete, Urray is not so good as I recall, Dingwall might be better. Scotlandspeople would be the place.

Have you viewed the images or are you just talking about the index  :-\

I haven't viewed them - I just have the dates and places. I just didn't know if the places corresponded with particular churches e.g. on FamilySearch records in Shalford, Essex are taken from St. Andrew's Church. I wasn't aware of the Church of Scotland rituals of ceremonies not always taking place in a church.

You really need to see the images on Scotlands people in case there is extra information. I think the index only shows a registration district
