Couples follow Madonna up aisle

Record numbers of foreign couples are marrying in Scotland, following the trend set four years ago by Madonna’s Highland wedding. Nearly 31,000 couples were married last year north of the border, and neither the bride nor groom was a Scot in 8,900 ceremonies.
Duncan Macniven, the Registrar General for Scotland, said the “Madonna effect” had been good for the country. “Celebrity weddings have raised the profile of Scotland,” he added.
Madonna and the film director Guy Ritchie were married at Skibo Castle in December 2000. The increase in the total number of weddings, to a 10-year high, was recorded in the Registrar General’s annual review.
