We are so happy that you were the person to marry us. Thank you for all your support leading up to the wedding too. Everyone is still raving about how it was the most sincere ceremony they have ever attended and we couldn’t have done it without your help. Keep up the great work Tim. You’re obviously a natural at what you do 🙂
You don’t need to be a writer to create a great ceremony, but it helps. Belinda and Brian can certainly string a sentence together, and I remember how much I liked the laid-back, funny way they wrote their homework. It was a long, long story (because they’ve known one another for a long, long time) … Continue Reading
Tim helped us realise that we should make our ceremony as personal as we wanted.
I remember the day I first met Fiona. It was about four or five years ago, cold, wet, and windy. My mate Bill and I were just coming down the ridge line of Scald Law in the Pentland Hills, when we met Fiona on the way up. The reason I remember it so well is … Continue Reading

A good number of our friends said it was the best wedding ceremony they’d ever been to – I think we might be seeing a few copycat humanist ceremonies amongst them in the next year or two!
There was a lot to love about this wedding, not least the way it started, when Woody came in with his mum and dad on each arm. In a traditional ceremony, the groom’s parents are just two more guests; this is a subtle way of saying, “I’ve got a family too, and they’re … Continue Reading
There’s something inherently dramatic about the idea of marrying in a winter wonderland, but this is the first year for a long time that the weather in Scotland has made that possible over the Festive Season. Sadly for more than one couple, that led to last-minute postponements, but by the time Stephen and Heather’s big … Continue Reading
