Personal, fun, relaxed, lots of laughter, lots of tears (good ones!) - all the elements of a great ceremony. Give me a call and let's talk about how we make YOUR special day absolutely unique.


Can we get married anywhere in Scotland?

Yes, there's nowhere that's out of bounds, except if you're on a boat, we need to drop anchor for the ceremony itself. Otherwise, anywhere you like - you're limited only by your imagination for your dream location.

Are you the same as a humanist?

Most people are very familiar with humanist ceremonies because they celebrate the couple being married. In that respect, I'm no different, but where I differ is that I'm not restricted in any way whatsoever regarding your content so you can include whatever you like in your ceremony including any religious or spiritual readings or prayers.

What does Interfaith mean?

Interfaith is a belief system which covers all faiths and none. The majority of the ceremonies I conduct have no religion in them at all but for some couples, although they don't have a belief themselves, their parents or grandparents do and they want to acknowledge that - my status as an Interfaith celebrant allows me to accommodate that. For other couples, one may have a belief and the other doesn't, so I work with you to work out a middle ground and ensure you both feel your beliefs have been met.

Will my wedding in Scotland be legal if you conduct it?

I'm authorised by the Registrar General of Scotland to conduct marriages so your ceremony will definitely be a legal one. If you're coming from overseas, there are a few more forms to fill in to ensure your ceremony here is recognised in your home country, but anyone marrying who lives in the UK will definitely have a legal marriage if I conduct it.

We've no idea where to start with organising things ...

When you book me, you'll get access to a special client area on my website which has lots of ideas - everything from venues and suppliers to suggestions for music, readings and ideas on how to write your vows. You'll also get a detailed timetable to help you in the whole run up to your wedding. And if there are questions there that aren't answered, I'll be on the end of an email or phone whenever you need me.


We got married in May this year and we couldn't reccomend Glynis enough. She took a lot of time to get to know us as a couple and crafted a ceremony that felt really personal. She went out of her way to make it extra special, and commissioned a personal quaich from a local wood-turner that was really meaningful to us. So many of our friends and family commented on what a lovely ceremony it was, and it was our favourite part of the day! Thank you again Glynis.

With all that is hectic with planning a wedding Glynis proved very calming and bringing it back to the reasons we get married. From our first meeting Glynis worked to get to know us and our story. From speaking with us she was able to deliver such a beautiful and personal ceremony on the day. Its was relaxed and funny whilst also touching and full of love. Everyone commented on how great she was. First class

Our wedding ceremony was amazing. We will never forget it as it was part of our most beautiful day of our lives and has totally raised and strengthened our 6 years relationship to a different level. The preparations started months before the wedding with Glynis visiting us and spending time with us to get to know us better and to know our story. The element of surprise was definitely kept as both me and my now husband wrote about each other and answered the questions in Glynis’s questionnaire, questions that required surprisingly in depth answers. We found what each one of us answered only during the ceremony. During the ceremony there were plenty of tears from everyone attending as Glynis so beautifully captured the essence of our story with the added element of surprise of what we wrote about one another. Overall it was one of the most wonderful experiences of our lives.

I contacted Glynis at rather short notice to arrange a surprise renewal of vows and hand fastening for when my wife and I were travelling to Scotland on holiday. She is incredibly professional and helped coordinate what was seemingly an impossible task, asked and listened about what makes our marriage special and helped make it the most wonderful surprise and a memory we will never forget. Thank you.

Glynis did an amazing job for our wedding. She was thorough and thoughtful in everything she did for us. She took time to get to know us and delivered our ceremony with compassion making it very personal to us. Our guests all commented on how the ceremony perfectly reflected who we were. She listened to what we wanted and helped make our day very special. We would highly recommend Glynis as a celebrant and we couldn't have been more pleased.
