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

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.

Humanist Wedding

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 information.

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.
