As a celebrant, I perform wedding ceremonies, commitment ceremonies and vow renewals throughout the UK and abroad on occasion. If you are looking to be legally married in Scotland, my affiliation with the Interfaith Seminary allows me to hold the legal part of non-religious and religious ceremonies. I am not associated to any particular church or religious organisation and you are not required to join any organisation for me to perform your wedding. I am happy to discuss with you how the legal part of the ceremony can be included in the service I offer. Scotland is a wonderful country to be married in and guidelines for the legal arrangements can be easily found at this website - https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/registration/getting-married-in-scotland/how-do-i-go-about-it.
It will be your beliefs (or none) that I honour and respect in your ceremony. If you want a personal ceremony, fun, loving, in a style that suits you both or perhaps with a spiritual element such as a reading, prayer or hymn then it really isn’t a problem. You may decide you want a completely non-religious ceremony then change your mind and that is absolutely fine.
Perhaps you would like to keep your wedding ceremony separate from the legal ceremony and if so, that is absolutely fine and I would be happy to discuss how that might work for you and give you all of the options open to you. Historically, people have been familiar with traditional religious church marriages and civil marriages held in registry offices however there are alternatives, many of which until recent years have been less well known. If you are looking for a flexible alternative, please get in touch for more information or watch my video What is an Interfaith Celebrant?
