Central FM and Strathcarron Hospice will not be held responsible to organise the legal part of the wedding ceremony. The winning couple will organise a registrar, or person of religion who is authorised to legally perform weddings in Scotland. In Scotland a religious or belief marriage may be solemnised only by a minister, clergyman, pastor, priest or other person entitled to do so under the Marriage (Scotland) Act 1977.
Couples must reside in the area to which the Central FM broadcasts. Please contact Central FM if you require further guidance.

The shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend an interview at Central FM on 4th and 5th July. Both couples must attend the interview. You will be asked to present your fundraising ideas to the judging panel.
The judges will determine who has come with the most realistic and achievable fundraising plans and the 5 couples they deem to be the best will be selected as the final 5 couples.

The final 5 couples will take part in fundraising activity from 10th July to 24th July. All the couples must comply with the fundraising regulations as given by Strathcarron Hospice and will be supported by the fundraising team for advice throughout that period.
