Ceremonies performed: Weddings, Naming Ceremonies

Hello! I live in Gourock in Inverclyde with my patient wife, my 2 kiddywinkles and my crazy dogs, Poppy and Hector. When I'm not celebranting (yes, it's a word!) I work at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow with students who have disabilities. In my spare time I sing and play the guitar in a band.
Humanism is very important to me and plays a part in all that I do. The ideas of kindness, equality and rational thought are at the forefront of my mind when bringing up my children and in my work.

Wedding & Civil Partnership Ceremonies

Getting married is a pretty big deal! That's why I do everything I can to make the experience as easy, relaxed and fun as possible for all the couples who choose me as their celebrant.
A humanist wedding is a bit like a Subway® Sandwich. (Other sandwich outlets are available)
Every part of it, from how you walk down the aisle, how many bridesmaids you have and what music is played to what vows you have, if any! is totally up to you. And if you want it a bit saucy or with extra cheese, then we're not hear to judge! (Did you see what I did there?!)

Naming & Welcoming Ceremonies

I love naming and welcoming ceremonies! They are always such great fun, relaxed days filled with joy. Working with families to find out all about the personality of your children and the influence that you have had in their lives so far is wonderful and always makes the ceremony so interesting and emotional for all of the guests.
