Weddings at Iona Abbey

Ceremony & Photography

Iona Abbey
Iona Abbey is one of Scotland’s most historic and sacred sites.

In addition to being a potent symbol of Scotland’s past, the Abbey still remains a focus for community life on the Island and home to the Iona Community.

You are therefore asked to contact the Abbey directly regarding the possibility of having a wedding there.
