Ceci gives an alternative to the traditional church wedding or civil ceremony. Often the ceremony and its content is given the least thought in planning a wedding even though it is at the very core of the day. Finding a way to personalise your wedding is vitally important, especially as you spend the rest of your lives together.
Ceci is one of nine celebrants in Scotland that holds a license from the General Register Office in Scotland to conduct a legally binding Pagan wedding ceremony. She has conducted over a hundred ceremonies ranging from informal elopements in woodlands or stone circles to large formal weddings in stately homes. Legally-binding ceremonies are only available in Scotland but she is willing to travel anywhere to conduct a wedding blessing ceremony or vow renewal - even as far as Instanbul on one memorable occasion!
Ceci can conduct a legally binding Pagan wedding ceremony for any size wedding, but this does not mean you have to follow a Pagan path for her services. She offers handfasting ceremonies, which are be popular among alternative lifestyles and spiritualties. She can hold a ceremony anywhere in Scotland, whether it's a castle or in the woodlands. She can also conduct legally binding wedding or handfasting ceremonies for gay or lesbian couples.
How she works
All ceremonies are written to your requirements and beliefs. Ceci can meet with you and discover your ceremony taste and requirements, after which a first draft os written and then edited until it's exactly the way you want it. A wedding ceremony legally must include a declaration by the bride and groom in the presence of a celebrant, along with two witnesses and the celebrant finally declaring the marriage. Otherwise, you are given complete freedom of choice to make your ceremony personal. Formal, informal, handfasting, readings, and more are available in her ceremonies.
While she greatly enjoys being one of the few celebrants holding a license, it doesn't confine her to weddings. She can also conduct ceremonies for baby naming, vow renewal ceremonies, and non-legally binding handfastings and blessings. Ceci is also a qualified Civil Funeral Celebrant with an NVQ Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy and has conducted over a hundred funeral services.
