Celebrant profile:

Neil Lynch

Ceremonies performed: Weddings, Funerals

I'm a sports-mad, big bike buff, globetrotting chap with a love of the wild, natural history, dogs, horses and all the good things in life...an optimist, an all-round-believer in no such thing as an ordinary life. A Swiftie and a feminist too. I like to have a laugh - often. My motto?...live long, love lots, try anything. Be kind.
I've had a full and varied work career; 30 years in the Police, Solicitor's Agent, Sports Project Coordinator, Tennis Coach, Bus Driver, Racquet Stringer, Malt whisky tasting presenter, nude model, Tournament Referee, Transport Manager at London 2012 Olympics, (what an experience that was!) 6 years working in Iraq as a Forensic Programme Consultant, Barman, Course Instructor, Truck Driver, sportswear & equipment retailer...wind-up Dad and irritating Granda too!...visited over 65 countries...lived in London, the middle east, Edinburgh and the Highlands...the list goes on and on ! Experience all you can in life!
I am now a fully trained husband of 51 years married (really?), dad to a girlie Welsh Springer spaniel called Tanni and Humanist Celebrant available throughout Scotland. I have conducted over 750 ceremonies over the last 7 years - and all over the country.
My Humanist beliefs are coupled with my vast experience of working with people in various roles for over 50 years and have added, not only to my caring nature, but strengthened my strong interest in helping people. I've experienced tragedy and triumph and always look for the positives.

Wedding & Civil Partnership Ceremonies

https://www.neillynch.co/

Wouldn’t it be great to start your married life with a ceremony that really means something? To tell your friends and family what your relationship means to you, how it evolved and why you are choosing to get married? Many of us who aren’t religious are looking for a wedding that is more flexible and personal than a civil or register office ceremony.
My ceremonies provide a very personal and meaningful way for couples with humanist beliefs to celebrate their marriage.
The ceremony doesn’t have to be like the one you attended before. I will craft a ceremony that suits your personality, your beliefs, your individuality and that also celebrates you as a couple.
There is a great deal of flexibility about the content, structure and style of the ceremony and as no couple is the same, there should be no two wedding ceremonies alike.
There are no restrictions and you can include anything you want. You can be married anywhere in Scotland…in a castle, by a loch, on the beach… anywhere you like. I have some great recommendations. Only you know why you love one another and what you want to achieve in your marriage so I can help you create a ceremony that reflects who you are, what you think and feel and your hopes for the future. Your say, your way, your day. I just aim to help you make it extra special.
Get in touch now – before your preferred date is reserved by another couple.

Funeral Ceremonies

The death of someone we know and love is often shocking and painful, even if it is expected. Humanist funerals and memorial services offer a personal and fitting way to say goodbye to those who have lived without religion. Humanist funerals bring people together to express sadness at the loss but also to celebrate the life lived. They focus sincerely and affectionately on the person who has died, paying tribute to the connections they made and left behind and the way they lived their life.
Whilst a funeral director is the professional most likely to deal with the practical arrangements of a funeral, what type of ceremony you choose is entirely up to you. And since funerals themselves have no legal status, humanist funerals – like all others – can be held in a variety of places, although in practice most are held in crematoria, cemeteries or woodland burial sites. I put a great deal of thought and care into what I write to not only reflect the person’s personality and the things that were important to them, but just as significantly include special memories of the people who were part of their life.
