Love is in the air

Ar­gyll is be­com­ing more of a wed­ding hotspot, with a grow­ing num­ber of cou­ples ty­ing the knot in the area. New fig­ures show the num­ber of wed­dings at­tended by coun­cil reg­is­trars in the first six months of 2018 have in­creased on the pre­vi­ous year. These in­clude the num­ber of wed­dings dur­ing the month of May in­creas­ing by a third. A to­tal of 76 cou­ples were mar­ried by Ar­gyll and Bute reg­is­trars in May, com­pared to 57 for the same month in 2017. As of June, the run­ning to­tal of wed­dings at­tended by Ar­gyll and Bute reg­is­trars stood at 224 for 2018, com­pared to 212 last year. In 2017, the fi­nal to­tal was 505. Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil does not keep records of wed­dings by area, but it is un­der­stood that two ar­eas will see an in­crease over the rest of the year. Oban, Lorn and the Isles, and Mid Ar­gyll, Kin­tyre and Is­lay, are both said to have a higher num­ber of wed­dings com­ing up this year. The fig­ures for He­lens­burgh and Lomond, and Bute and Cowal, are each ex­pected to re­main roughly the same.
