Claire Digance, Humanist Wedding Celebrant with Humanist Society Scotland
I am authorised to conduct legal weddings in Scotland. Hurrah!
What? You want to know more?
Oh. Ok then.
Here’s what you must have to be married in Scotland:
You (are you over 16? Good)
Me (always ready)
Two witnesses (are they over 16? Excellent)
A valid marriage schedule
a ceremony location
That last one is entirely your call. You could be married here….
Or any of these…..
Or anywhere else, for that matter. Once you’ve got that part sorted, we’ll talk about your ceremony. Your ceremony. Not anyone else’s.
If you want to have a huge wedding, full of readings, music and noisy guests, you wire in. If you fancy something a little more low-key, a wedding where you’re just inviting your family and close friends and yet, somehow, you’ve reached the maximum number your venue can hold and that’s before you’ve even started on cousins… good for you. Or maybe, after tipsy chat with loveheart eyes, you’ve decided to elope.
Magical. Whatever you choose, it’s going to be brilliant because it’s your wedding and we’re going to fill it with warmth and love and fun and laughter and mibbes some greetin’ too and, most importantly, we’ll do it together.
