SO MUCH CHOICE
Scotland is a fantastic place to get married. There is so much choice about how to get married. Your wedding ceremony can be religious, non-religious, spiritual or humanist. You can be married at any time of day, early in the morning at dawn, or late into the evening as the sun is setting. A Scottish wedding ceremony can be held almost anywhere, inside or outside. Your dream wedding might be in an ancient castle or ruined abbey, on a beach, in a romantic hotel or on a distant scottish island. It is all possible.
A TRULY PERSONAL CEREMONY
I believe that each wedding ceremony should be truly memorable, meaningful and personal. I work with each couple helping you to plan a ceremony that includes ALL that is important to you. It may be small and simple or it may involve other family members or children, it is your choice. I spend time with you to understand what is important to you in making your marriage vows, and to incorporate this into your wedding ceremony. I can conduct a ceremony wherever and whenever you wish, including your choice of poetry, music, readings and prayers.
RELIGOUS or NON-RELIGOUS
As an Interfaith Celebrant I offer services to people of any faith or of none. You can choose to have a wedding that includes religious words, readings or music, or you can choose a ceremony which is non-religious or humanist. You have the freedom and flexibility to create a personal wedding ceremony that reflects your beliefs and also respects your traditions. If you have always dreamed of a church wedding, but are not a regular member of a church, there are some wonderful venues with their own chapels where I can hold a ceremony that acknowledges and celebrates your beliefs. You may prefer a wedding that is not religious, or is humanistic. I work with you to create a meaningful personal ceremony that is all about the two of you, and what being in love and getting married means to you. As an Interfaith Celebrant I am able to include any mixture of non-religious, spiritual or religious elements and create and conduct a wedding ceremony that is perfect for you.
YOUR CHOICE OF RITUALS
The most usual ritual in a wedding is the exchanging of rings, but you can also include other elements that symbolise the joining of your lives together and celebrate your love. You may choose to light candles, or blend sand together, you may want to involve your friends and family by having a ring warming (the rings are passed around so that your guests can add their own blessings to your marriage), or you may want to have a traditional scottish handfasting, or share a drink from a quaich. If you already have children you may want to involve them in your ceremony as well.
WEDDINGS THROUGHOUT SCOTLAND
I live in East Lothian near Edinburgh, but I love to travel and I have held weddings in Ayrshire, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Fife and Perthshire.
