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.
Years ago the ‘local’ vicar was often too far away to visit more than 2 or 3 times
a year and couples who wanted to marry before his next visit would ‘tie the knot’
by being bound together in a handfasting ceremony see our Handfasting page for more
I can't promise magic, but between us, we can give it a good go.
As a Humanist Celebrant I also conduct funerals where the family want a non-religious
ceremony that talks about the person who has died - each funeral is unique.
I also do Naming Ceremonies for those parents who are without religion or want to
allow their child to make their own decisions when older, but who want their child
to be officially 'named', and so have their own identitiy, as well as an official
piece of paper giving birth details.
Please contact me to discuss how you can have the ceremony you want.
Humanist, non religious weddings, funerals and baby namings 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.
A Scottish Humanist wedding is based on age old traditions and rituals – some with
a spiritual base and some for purely practical reasons. Handfasting, or tying the
knot, is an example.
