Testimonials

Below are some of the funeral and wedding testimonials we have received following Humanist Fellowship of Scotland ceremonies. If you would like to share with us your experience then we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Su and Ernest – Floors Castle

We really appreciate that you’ve sent this file so quickly to us on our wedding day. We were able to share a very nice moment going through the ceremony together again, using this document, and explaining to each other what was going through our minds or sharing funny things we noticed throughout…which really is a gift in itself 🙂
Thank you so, so very much for all your dedication to our ceremony. It has been an absolute pleasure creating the happiest day of our lives together and with you.

Su and Ernest

Funeral for Peter

Thank you so much for a lovely Humanist Ceremony. It was a first for me and a lot of people who attended. You obviously put a lot of work into it, which was very much appreciated.

Anne

Funeral for John

Thanks for today. Alistair’s children and mother were delighted with the tribute and many friends commented on what a lovely service and that it should be the format for all services. I couldn’t have asked for more so just wanted to thank you for making the difference Graham – it does mean a lot.
Kindest regards,

Funeral for Alistair

I thought I would take the opportunity this morning to thank you on behalf of the family.
We all felt the telling of Frank’s life story had just the right tone of celebration. Not too sad. Even the music seemed right.
Thank you again.

Joyce

Funeral for Frank

Just a short note to say a huge thank you for the delivery of a beautiful service. Mum said it was just how she hoped it would be! Francine and I totally agree.
Thank you again for giving Dad such a beautiful send-off.
Sincerely

Funeral for Frank

Thank you very much indeed for helping us to celebrate Pip Pope’s remarkable life ; my sister and I and all Pip’s friends thought that she could not possibly have had a better good bye and a large part of that was thanks to you. Far from being downcast at her loss, we felt quite uplifted by your words.
With very, very many thanks.

Funeral for Pip

Lauren and Gareth – Marine Hotel North Berwick

Gareth and I just wanted to say thanks for all you help with the wedding ceremony and for making everything go so smoothly. I was so nervous before the wedding but when I met you outside the room you totally put me at ease.
Most of the guests had never been to a humanist wedding ceremony before and so many people came up to us during the wedding to say that it was the nicest ceremony that they have ever been too. The said it was lovely to attend a ceremony that was so personal but fun at the same time. The guests said that the highlight of the ceremony was the hand fasting as they didn’t realise that is where tying the knot originated.

Lauren and Gareth

Becca and Rowan – Wedderburn Castle

We thank you so much for the wonderfully warm, and personal ceremony which you conducted for Becca and Rowan on Saturday. We found it very moving and perfectly pitched. We know that Becca and Rowan found it perfect too, and many of the guests also commented in the same vein.  Your good natured calm and hanky were very welcome too!!
Very best wishes and thank you again. We can’t imagine a more perfect ceremony!

Funeral for John

I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for conducting a beautiful ceremony – I feel it really encapsulated “Billy” and how he had lived his life.

Funeral for Billy

I’d like to thank you for the funeral service you conducted. As family it is never easy on these occasions and you made an unhappy process bearable and it was nice to know that you were on top of things on the day. We received many favourable comments from friends and relatives who attended, indeed quite a few people wished you had been able to join us afterwards so they could thank you in person.  I can only pass on their sentiments to you. Thank you also for the nicely presented copy of the service which is something we will cherish.

Funeral for Elspeth

Just to say thank you – it was great – you were great – everyone said how good it was – a real tribute to my mum and honest one – feel very proud and very comforted by how you handled everyone and everything.
