We’ve been around for a long time

Our celebrants have been conducting ceremonies since the early 1990s and legal weddings in Scotland since 2005. With this history, it’s not surprising that we’re the most trusted provider of humanist ceremonies, with a well-deserved reputation for delivering amazingly heartfelt and personal ceremonies. It’s no wonder people continue to choose a Humanist Society Scotland celebrant.

We’ve got you covered

We have a network of over 140 registered celebrants, all of whom are able to fulfil our unique promise. Only we can guarantee you a celebrant if an emergency or illness befalls your chosen celebrant. You are also covered by public liability insurance for added peace of mind.  

All our celebrants undertake a rigorous programme of training and continuous professional development throughout their professional career with the Society, and are regularly reviewed to ensure ceremonies are delivered to our very high standards. 

Only Humanist Society Scotland registered celebrants are permanently authorised to conduct legal humanist marriages in Scotland (having been awarded prescribed status by the Scottish Parliament), so you couldn’t be in safer hands for your wedding. 

If you have to postpone your wedding (as happened throughout the coronavirus pandemic) and your chosen celebrant is not available on your new date, you can rest easy knowing that your booking would simply transfer to another equally qualified celebrant.
