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.

Shonagh and Mark – Mansfield Traquair

Just a little note to say a huge thank you for all you did for us on Saturday, the ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of it. It’s been a whirlwind & can’t believe it’s all over now, but it was a very magical day!

Lindy and Iain – Prestonfield House

We both appreciated what you did for us on Saturday and in the run up to it. I have been thinking a lot about it as it really touched us both. Your handling of the whole event was so warm, professional and caring, it was special. Every one of our guests commented on what a lovely ceremony it was and it was all down to you. It was absolutely impeccable. We are indebted to you.

Lindy and Iain

Just a wee note to express my thanks for both the professional and above all exceptional job you did at my Dad’s (Alistair Porteous) funeral on 13/02/2014. I have to be honest, I am was a bit sceptical regarding humanists as I had heard mixed reviews, however I was very much pleased the way you executed your role and duty on the day.

The number of individuals who commented on how great the tributes were was incredible – so thank you for reading them so well. I’m sure you can recall that the church was packed with folk standing and queued out the door.

Funeral for Alistair Porteous

We all agreed how perfect the whole day was and how much we appreciated your input in the preparation and on the day. You were fantastic and even your outfit complimented the whole spirit of the ceremony! We had the most prefect day and the evening was chilled, fun and exactly as we’d hoped. We couldn’t have asked for more and I want to sincerely thank you for helping us to enjoy our special day so much. Once again thank you so much for making our day just perfect, we’ll never forget you.

Kirsty & Stewart – Friday 2nd May 2014

The Fellowship’s Celebrant was absolutely fantastic conducting our wedding ceremony. He was really relaxed and added his own sense of humour which was fun! He welcomed our own personal twist on things and managed to make himself heard while Molly our Chief Bridesmaid (aka our dog) barked a few times during the ceremony! Many of our friends and family said that they’d never been to a more relaxed, personal and romantic service which confirmed we’d made the right decision to have a Humanist service and we’d highly recommend this to any future Bride & Groom.

Finally we are relaxing. We just want to say a huge thank you for marrying us on Saturday. We had a lovely day and we would not have done it any different.  The ceremony was lovely and you have a wonderful ability to put people at ease! You have definitely found your true vocation : I will recommend you highly!!!

Jane and Pete

Just to say a big Thank You for officiating at our wedding. It was everything we hoped it would be. Your friendliness, enthusiasm, insight and suggestions made all the difference and we feel lucky you were part of our “Big Day”!
Everybody said how lovely the Ceremony was and how well you conducted it.
Best regards

Dave and Alison

A big thank you again for helping us have a great day, I’ve lost count the amount of people that said it’s the best service they’ve ever seen at a wedding.
Thanks again
