    Kind, caring and professional

    Teigan Elder was the celebrant who conducted our wedding ceremony, and we cannot recommend her enough. She is professional, kind, caring and calm ( which helps on the day!). The ceremony was so lovely. Thank you so much Teigan and Thistle Ceremonies! Linda and Andy x

    Cannot recommend Tegan Elder enough! She was incredible.

    Where do we start, from day one Tegan was absolutely incredible. She was so organised and made what feels like a very daunting process, really easy and stress free from start to finish.

    On the day, Tegan even put the extra effort in to come and see us before the ceremony to make sure we were calm and ready for the ceremony. She had even printed out our vows and the readings our family were doing, taking all the pressure and stress away from us.

    Her personality fitted in perfectly with what we hoped for in a celebrant - she was so bubbly, energetic, funny and made sure every single detail was personalised to us. She had all of our guests laughing with us reminiscing on our story of our journey to marriage, while also including anecdotes of our precious sentimental moments.

    We cannot put into words how much we would recommend having Tegan there on your day. We had so many comments from guests on how amazing she was, saying the ceremony was one of the best they had even seen.

    Thank you so much Tegan, we appreciate everything you did for us and for making our day that little bit more memorable.

    Tegan is the best

    As soon as I knew I was getting married I knew I had to have Tegan she is the nicest, warmest person and put me and Sam at ease straight away. The ceremony was beautiful. Thank you so much Tegan for contributing to our perfect day you are amazing.

    Excellent service one in a million

    Billy was 100% the best choice we ever made for our wedding. He was always keeping us right and up to date at all times. Nothing was too much.
    Afterwards all of our guest commented on how great his was from the get go amd how they loved how upbeat the ceremony was, even before i arrived down the aisle. As the bride I feel like I almost missed out by not being there.
    Cannot thank him enough!

    Lucy Black

    We spoke with a few celebrants before finding Lucy and I can honestly say she made us feel at ease immediately so it was a very easy decision to have her conduct our ceremony.

    Before the big day Lucy kept in touch and made sure to include all the little bits that were important for us for our day.

    I can honestly say we had the best time and cannot thank her enough for how special she made it for us.

    Everyone there said just how amazing the ceremony was and how nice it was that our story was told and spoke of how attentive she was before, during and after our ceremony with everyone involved.

    so once again thank you Lucy for everything you done for us!

    love
    Mr & Mrs Gallagher 💜🌟

    Our wedding with Jean Steele

    We had Jean as our humanist for our wedding on 28/05/22. From the very start Jean was so approachable and friendly, she was very informative on what service she provides. Since then her communication via email throughout the pandemic has been excellent, always there to offer advice on any questions we had. She produced such a personal ceremony for us, everyone commented on how nice it was. We really feel like Jean has become a friend to us and we couldn't have asked for a better person to conduct our ceremony.

    Love,
    Mr and Mrs McPhee x

    A lovely experience

    Jean was so friendly, made us feel very laid back throughout the whole process. She got to know us through zoom calls and meeting in person, and got us to tell her our story. This made our ceremony feel so personal to us, and funny. A few of our guests commented on what a lovely ceremony it was. Jean was very responsive to emails and always very helpful when questions were asked. I would highly recommend Jean as a celebrant, she was a pleasure to work with.

    Lucy Black was amazing, couldn’t ask for a better celebrant. She made us feel comfortable, confident and it felt natural. All our guests complimented her script and how personable she was. Would definitely recommend her to anyone. Thank so much for everything.

    Amazing ceremony!


    Tegan
    I knew we had chosen the right person to marry us when we met tegan through zoom for the first time! She’s so lovely and genuine and asked all the right questions to get to know us! I really knew we chose the right person when we were in the middle of the ceremony and just having the best time of our lives. Tegan made me feel so comfortable and at ease and the entire ceremony was so personal and light hearted- exactly what we wanted. Our guests were laughing with us during the ceremony and also feeling all the love and emotions too. We had a ring warming ceremony and drank from the quiach and every moment felt so special. We were really able to be present.
    Our guests (and I mean, ALL of them) commented on how this was the best ceremony they’ve ever witnessed! Wow! I can’t wait to watch it back!! Tegan has a beautiful voice and demeanor and I just know we wouldn’t have gotten those comments had we chosen someone else to conduct the moment important moment of our lives!
    Thank you Tegan! You are a true gem and we are so lucky to have had you be a huge part of our special day! Cheers!!
