People keep telling me they’ve seen me conducting weddings in videos all over the web, but I’ve never seen any: till now. Keith and Marie got married earlier this year, all the way up the ancient spiral stone staircase of the Old Keep at Dundas Castle, and it was a wonderful occasion, as you can see.
They sent me a lovely card, that said, “We honestly can’t thank you enough. You helped us create a ceremony that was true to ourselves, which to us was most important.
“Although we did find writing it difficult (because there was so much we wanted to say), you helped us every step of the way and it was worth every minute we spent on it. Writing it really made it clear what was important to us and it brought us even closer together (if that was even possible!)
“We have received an abundance of compliments for the ceremony. Many of our guests had never experienced a humanist ceremony before, and one of them (who is anti-marriage usually – except for us!) said that the ceremony was amazing and the best wedding he has been to – quite a compliment from him! In fact he’s recommended you to his mum!
“Our wedding was all the better because of you. It really was the best day of our lives – thank you for being a part of it!”
It was a lovely ceremony and seeing it on film really brings it back: I especially enjoyed being upstaged with perfect timing by a young lad who’d got bored of being in the audience and who’d decided to come up and play with one of the flower girls instead – that’s the kind of thing you can never predict, and it always makes the day even more enjoyable. So thank you Keith and Marie for allowing me to share your greatest day, and thanks also to Adam Troup of Inspire Video for the excellent clip.
