I am a Humanist Celebrant based in Leith, Edinburgh, fully insured and registered with the Registrar General at the National Records of Scotland to provide legal wedding ceremonies.

Being able to legally wed people and to have them put their faith in me to deliver their own unique story has been one of the greatest privileges of my life so far. A ceremony which honours exactly who people are, filled with all of the best anecdotes, memories and unique flourishes, is the best way to celebrate your big day. Do you have grand designs of having your wedding ceremony conducted at the top of a hill or in the middle of a hedge maze? I am always up for anything a bit quirky and open to ideas!

Someone once commented that I was “the BBC6 Music of celebrants” on account of the fact that I used to work for a couple of indie record labels, so that should give you a measure of me. A bit alternative, a bit quirky and always up for catering for the unusual and off-the-beaten track. My ceremonies are relaxed, warm and light-hearted. Although I’m based in Leith, I am more than happy to travel across Scotland.

If you connect with any of this, then I'd love to hear from you!

You will love Gillian!

Gillian was our celebrant for a vow renewal ceremony at Dunimarle Castle on our 30th anniversary. She created exactly the experience we had hoped for on our special day! Throughout the preparation process, she spent time getting to know us well; and she always listened carefully to our needs. Her ideas for adding extra personal touches made all the difference. With Gillian's help, we were comfortable, the day went smoothly, and every moment was beautiful. Message her! You will love her!
