Bespoke, unique ceremonies designed especially for you
There are two ways of being legally married in Scotland
Registrar Led - Civil Marriage
Religious in a Church or Chapel or Belief Marriage
Nowadays people are less keen to have any restrictions placed on the ceremonies that take place around the most important events in their life. There is a desire to have a ceremony that reflects the people getting married and their families, coupled with freedom to be married whenever and wherever they want, with the words of their choosing.
Most Humanist Celebrants and Registrars do not allow any reference to God or Heaven and will not allow any prayers or readings from the bible.
You may think but I am not religious, and I don’t go to church, so it doesn’t matter, but imagine there are people within your immediate family or guests who you know are religious and it would mean a lot to them to hear a particular prayer or reading, with the choices above this would not be allowed.
Maybe there is a hymn your mum loves and would like to hear, again this would not be possible.
By working with and Independent Celebrant you don’t have to make choices about what you can or cannot have on your special day, the world is your oyster.
You can have prayers, readings, hymns or none of these and go for beautiful poems, you can write your own vows and be married wherever you like.
The main reason people choose me, an Independent Celebrant is choice, the ability for you to have your day the way you want it and your marriage is legal.
You'll be doing your wedding an injustice if you don't choose Niki! She took the time to get to know Connor and I and portrayed our story beautifully. The ceremony was emotional, it was funny, but most importantly... It was us! Everyone got a sense of our individual personalities and our journey as a couple to be the people we are now. So many people commented on the ceremony and lots of family members said it was the best wedding they have ever been to, all because of Niki. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she was amazing to work with, she is such a beautiful person who was as excited about our wedding as we were. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I genuinely cannot thank Niki enough for marrying my husband and I on Saturday! After our celebrant taking ill on Thursday Niki ran to the rescue to help us and after only meeting us for half an hour on Friday morning the ceremony she gave us was outstanding (few little funny hiccups which everyone found funny). Everyone commented on how amazing she was and how amazing she was again after talking to us for just half an hour! Again, Niki thank you so much for coming to mine and Marc’s rescue xx
