Ruth and Stuart’s Humanist Wedding at at the Principal George Hotel

Ruth and Stuart created a wonderful ceremony that really wowed their guests! Their friends David and Jennifer told their story, and here’s a précis of how it started.

It was on Tinder that Stuart stumbled across the profile of a pretty blonde girl called Ruth. A teacher and pizza lover from Lanark. She swiped right, he swiped right and his first message was, “Perfect date -Theatre, or pizza and a film?” 

Ruth scanned quickly for good English and thought to herself, ‘this guy seems genuine, handsome and he can spell. Perhaps a potential date?’ Then she read his profile – STUDENT. Oh dear, this was no good… 

Spoiler Alert: it all worked out OK in the end!

David’s father gave us his take on their story and Yvonne read a poem of her own composition before Julie sang us ‘It feels like home’.

Ruth and Stuart spoke their secret vows directly to one another before exchanging rings and they gave Ruth’s granny Elizabeth a lovely surprise by asking her to be one of their witnesses.

Along with these great photos by Sarah from Morgan and Rose Photography, Ruth and Stuart sent me these words.

Following the best day of our life, and a lovely honeymoon, we just wanted to take the time to thank you for your contribution both on and in the lead up to our wedding. 

Your professionalism and manner throughout the whole process in the lead up to our wedding was fantastic, and just what we needed in terms of how to structure our own ceremony. Our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed it, and have given us lovely remarks such as it was the best ceremony they have seen etc. This would not have been possible without your support.

We feel that with your help we developed a ceremony that was personalised to us, and really summarised our past as well as what is to come with our future.

Thank you so much once again, and best wishes, Ruth and Stuart.

It was my pleasure! Congratulations to you both – and to Sarah of Morgan and Rose whose baby Mae came into the world at the end of January (despite being immersed in the world of baby snuggles, she’s still taking enquiries!)
