Wedding ceremonies

At least one of the partners to the wedding must be:

  • A graduate/diplomat, or
  • A student, or
  • A member of staff of the University of Glasgow, or
  • The son or daughter of these categories.

The Memorial Chapel

  • memorial chapel

At the heart of the University stands the peaceful and magnificent Memorial Chapel. Created as a vibrant memorial to love and remembrance, the Chapel is a place of beauty for both worship and celebration. One of the few locations in Scotland where marriages in the Protestant or Reformed and Roman Catholic faiths can be celebrated, weddings conducted by humanist celebrants can also be held in the University Chapel.

Viewing

You can visit the Chapel every weekday from 0900 until 1700 and by appointment on Saturdays when weddings are taking place.

Timings

Weddings can take place on Saturdays and Sundays during term time and on any day during the University holidays.

Weddings can start at:

  • 1200,
  • 1400,
  • 1600, and
  • 1800 each day.

Please note that your marriage ceremony must start at the alloted time. The University can be booked to host 4 weddings each day, therefore in order for you to enjoy your wedding service to the full, each marriage ceremony must commence at the agreed times of 1200, 1400, 1600 and 1800.

Failure to do this may impact on the time available to take photographs on arrival and upon exit. It may also require the visiting celebrants to adjust the wedding service to fit the available time.
