Wedding & Civil Partnership Ceremonies

Your day, your say, your way.
Wouldn’t it be great to start your married life with a ceremony that really means something? To tell your friends and family what your relationship means to you, how it evolved an...

Taking the time to think about why you’re getting married, and deciding what you want to tell your family and friends, is what will make your wedding so special – as so many of the couples I’ve married have been happy to tell me. Unlike in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, humanist weddings in Scotland do have legal status. You can have a Humanist wedding ceremony in other parts of the UK but the ceremony has no legal status. Scotland is one of only eight countries in the world humanists can conduct legal marriages, the others being Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Norway, Iceland, Ireland and some parts of the US.

I’ll help you make your wedding ceremony truly unique, a memory you will cherish for the rest of your lives. Just as your relationship is yours alone, your ceremony should also be uniquely yours, and reflect your thoughts and feelings, so it is meaningful to you and your guests. One of the attractions of a Humanist wedding is that you’re free to say in your own words why you’re here, where you’re going and what you’re promising, and I will help you create a ceremony that reflects who you are, and what you think and feel.

Each wedding is tailored to meet the particular couple’s requirements. You can set the tone that’s right for you and choose your own words and music. From castles to beaches, from Scottish islands like Skye and The Hebrideas, to candle-lit city hotels or even the intimacy of your own home, I can give you and your guests a wonderful Humanist wedding or civil partnership in Scotland.

Funeral Ceremonies

The death of someone we know and love is often shocking and painful, even if it is expected. Humanist funerals and memorial services offer a personal and fitting way to say goodbye to those who have lived without rel...
