A Perfect Ceremony

Lucy was the first person we booked for our wedding day and I’m so glad we did! We immediately knew from looking at her page that we wanted her to marry us and couldn’t have picked anyone better to make our ceremony as special as it was.

Our first meeting with Lucy felt like we had known her for ages. She spent so much time getting to know us as a couple, finding out about our story and the details of our wedding day. She kept in touch from the moment of booking up, ensuring she could offer advice or answer any questions we had, including information on the legal paperwork. She even checked in on both of us the morning before the ceremony to make sure we were doing okay and to do a final run through which really eased any nerves we had.

She conducted our ceremony beautifully and we had so many of our guests compliment it saying that it was one of the best they had seen. It was so personal to us and you could really tell that Lucy had put a lot of time and effort in to getting it right. She made people laugh, cry and smile throughout!

Lucy shows a genuine interest in her couples which is so clear to see throughout the whole process. Her bubbly, caring personality really shines through and we can’t recommend her enough! ❤️

Celebrant - Anne Skelton

Ryan and I had a MS Teams meeting with Anne and straight away felt at ease and were happy to book for our wedding at Forbes of Kingennie in Dundee. Anne advised there would be no travel cost included. Anne visited our home and spent time chatting to us about the ceremony and what we would like included in the ceremony. she is a lovely, warm person and we are so glad we found anne to be our celebrant. She kept us right if we had any questions leading up to our big day. I would highly recommend Anne to any couples. Thanks again, From Lois and Ryan.

At ease and abe to enjoy our day

We knew we had picked the correct Celebrant for us from the first moment we met Tegan. As soon as we met she made us feel so at ease that our the story of our journey together flowed easily and she captured everything we stood for in her ceremony for us. Everyone agreed our ceremony was amazing and full of smiles and fun. Thank you again Tegan from Angie and John MacLean xx

Human, interesting, fun, relaxed and helpful service

Helpful resources were provided to help us write our ceremony which was great, enabling us to have a magical wedding with Billy leading. He was caring and kind, considerate of what we wanted. He was humorous relaxing the groom when the bride was late. Thank you Thistle.

Janine Ryan for our wedding ceremony

To say we were thankful to Janine would be a total understatement. We clicked and bonded with Janine instantly and this carried on throughout the planning process and during our big day. There was so much time spent getting to know us and our story, every detail was put beautifully into a script that captured us perfectly. We had our wedding in Glencoe with a few family members and our German Shepherd dog, Janine felt like part of our family on our wedding day. Nothing was an issue (not even the crazy Scottish weather). Janine really is a special lady who will put her all into making sure your day is as you want it to be. Thank you again Janine for everything

Wonderful celebrant

Mel is a wonderful celebrant. She put us at ease from day one and went above and beyond for us. She made our wedding day very special and helped to calm our nerves with her warm, caring nature.

Fantastic person and professional

Tegan was amazing from start to finish. She kept us on track with all the planning and created such a personal yet light hearted ceremony. We immediately felt comfortable with Tegan and she was so friendly and professional throughout. We got so many comments of how great the ceremony was. I would highly recommend Tegan to anyone. Thank you so much for making our day so special!

Anne was so supportive before and during our wedding. She communicated with us all the way through and made sure we were happy with every single detail.
So friendly, it felt like we had known Anne for years.
She was brilliant with our young kids, making them feel very relaxed to carry out their little roles on our big day. She checked in on us all on the morning of the wedding, keeping myself calm before getting married.
She went over and beyond our expectations. We are so happy that we chose Anne as our celebrant to carry out our service.
Anyone looking for a celebrant, look no further, you have found your woman. We cannot recommend Anne highly enough.

Aww I can’t thank you enough. Your energy and vibe is great, we just loved you so much from the first meeting and really felt that you got us as a couple. At the ceremony just before we were to do the vows I was like fuck, will I just whip out my phone, I should have memorised these, but then you pulled out the card and I was like of course Tegan had handled it lol 😂 you helped make our day. You’re so gifted at what you do and it’s clear as day that you truly care so thank you ❤️ -Steph

Tegan thank you so much for being our celebrant, you completely made our wedding what it was and you're such a genuine heartfelt person and what you wrote just captured us so spot on. I would recommend this celebrant to anyone 100 times over, the warmth and love and care was so present and such a beautiful start to our marriage. -Sasha

The one and only Lucy Black!

We looked at many different celebrant’s when booking our wedding, and then we found Lucy. She’s is one of the most down to earth, kind hearted and sounded person you will met. She’s so welcoming, easy to get along with and just makes all the worries clear. We are so grateful that she had our date free and booked her right away. From our first (video) meeting, to the wedding day she kept in contact and even came to see me a few hours before the ceremony just to make sure everything was going as planned. We loved that she was part of our special day ♥️. Thanks so much Lucy and thistle ceremonies ♥️

Just exceptional

I can not praise Thistle Ceremonies enough for the amazing day they helped us have. Anne Skelton was our celebrant on the day and she was exactly who we were looking for. From the first Zoom in lockdown, to finally meeting her on the day, she was like an old friend.
Thanks so much for helping to make our day utterly perfect.
