Humanist investigated by police after fake wedding certificate is posted to registrar’s office following ceremony

Update: The result of the investigation by Police Scotland was a decision to not take any further action.

Juliet Wilson officiated at a ceremony for Brian and Valerie Donaghy – who were already married but didn’t want their friends and family to feel left out of the real wedding. Douglas McLellan, chief executive of the Humanist Society Scotland, said they had been “surprised and shocked” to learn of the allegation.

He added: “We have tried to offer our support to Juliet but she has opted to communicate via her solicitors. We will not be continuing with our internal investigation until the police investigation has concluded,” reports The Daily Record
