I became a humanist celebrant having been inspired to do so after attending several humanist funerals and weddings. I believe in the principles and values of humanism and that everyone is important.
I really enjoy conducting weddings. I feel so lucky to be part of a couple’s special day. I enjoy planning the wedding ceremonies with couples and providing them with information and choice as to what they would like in their ceremony. Every ceremony is different as it is personal to them. I like travelling around the country, have been lucky to meet some lovely people and have been to some wonderful venues. Some spectacular venues and some very small and intimate but every ceremony is special and important.
I have been helping bereaved families celebrate the life of loved ones in a very personal way by providing funeral ceremonies focused on the life of the person. I feel privileged to be able to support families and friends in their times of bereavement. I feel we should celebrate the life people have led and focus on what that person has meant to family, friends and acquaintances.
I also provide baby naming ceremonies which again offer a unique and personal service for that special occasion. This is a wonderful opportunity to welcome a new person into the world surrounded with love and acceptance.
Over the years, I have been working in the care sector, latterly in the regulation of services. I am based in the West Lothian area and I would be happy to work in other areas across Scotland. I can be contacted by phone 07738510034 or by email Thirza @ hfofs.co.uk or by using our website contact page.
Many thanks for making our day extra-special. We really appreciated the time you took to walk us through the detail of a humanist ceremony and make sure it was just right for us. And it was! Lots of great comments after the ceremony, and we’ll always have fantastic memories of a wonderful day 🙂 Rodti and Lynsey
“Thank you Thirza! It was a pleasure to have you conduct our wedding ceremony. Couldn’t be happier. Thank you for making it so plain sailing and relaxed.
Chris and Kim
We just wanted to say thankyou for being the Celebrant at our wedding it was a beautiful ceremony and everything we could have wanted. We had a lot of friends from England at the wedding, where Humanist weddings are less common, and many of them commented to us afterwards about how impressed they were at a Humanist Ceremony. I had several people saying how they liked the fact that is was so personal to me and Sam and struck the right balance between humour and romance.

Thank you to everyone who made our wedding so special, in particular a BIG thank you to Thirza Wilson Humanist Celebrant and dear friend who conducted our service wonderfully well despite the anticipated audience participation and fun heckling !!!
Heather and Mark
We had a wonderful fun wedding weekend. It was very special to have such an individualised ceremony that reflected our story and who we are as a couple. The three things being kept a secret from each other is a really lovely idea. Lots of people commented on how lovely the ceremony was. Thanks for being part of our special day.
