Personal Humanist Ceremonies

> Your wedding should be what you want

> It should fit your beliefs

> It should fit your personalities

> You should enjoy it

> Your family and friends should enjoy it

Many couples who aren't religious are looking for a wedding that is more personal than a registry office ceremony. As a Registered Celebrant of the Humanist Society of Scotland I am able to perform weddings in Scotland which are legal world-wide.

As a Humanist Celebrant I also conduct funerals where the family want a non-religious ceremony that celebrates the life of the deceased. By telling stories and anecdotes, reliving memories, and friends and family either reading a eulogy or writing one for me to read, every funeral is unique.

I can't promise magic, but between us, we can give it a good go.

Please contact me to discuss how you can have the ceremony you want.

Humanist, non religious weddings and funerals in Dumfriesshire, The Borders,  North and West Cumbria. Working together we create the unique ceremony you want, one to look back on with pride and satisfaction.


Weddings: the ceremony will be written according to your wishes - which we will discuss in full. Apart from 'the legal bit' which must be done exactly, anything else that is legal and decent can be incorporated into the ceremony. You chose the music, the readings, and your vows to each other. You have full access to the 'script' that is used on the day and are encouraged to make changes to anything I have written that isn't right for you.

Personal stories are an important part of Humanist funerals - amusing stories told with affection - reminding the gathering of the reasons they are with you. Memories are all that are left after a death - by sharing these memories we keep them safe.

Because I live close to the Scottish/English Border I have trained with both British Humanist Association (England) and the Humanist Society of Scotland.  I am accredited by both to conduct funerals and weddings. I work in Dumfriesshire, The Borders, North and West Cumbria.

Working together we create the unique ceremony you want, one to look back on with pride and satisfaction.

Until the law changes in England I can only conduct a celebration of a legal marriage conducted elsewhere, or a commitment ceremony - which has no legal standing.
