Brian Baxter – Wedding, Naming & Funeral Celebrant
“I take enormous joy in helping others to create their own unique ceremony and to assist them in having the most memorable day of their lives.”
Brian is available to conduct Weddings, Vow Renewals, Baby Naming Ceremonies and Funerals.
Over several years, Brian has witnessed and ably assisted well over 1000 Celebrants in Humanist Wedding Ceremonies across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, particularly so when delivering his Highland Wedding Master of Ceremonies (Toastmaster) provision. Brian is a highly skilled public speaker and has a Robert Burns recital gift. He has an impressive Master of Ceremonies CV. Some clients have said that he is “the calm in the storm”.
He takes great joy in witnessing the freedom that a Humanist Ceremony gives to clients, making the occasion even more memorable for the newlyweds, family and guests. This extensive wedding experience triggered his thought process and it did not take him long to decide to study for and gain the Diploma in Humanist Ceremonies and become a Humanist Celebrant with Fuze Ceremonies.
Brian has been married to Val for over 30 years and have one son, Steven, who has recently “flown the nest”. Steven’s room is now being used as a “Walk in Wardrobe”, in which Brian is not permitted to hang or store any of his Highland clothes! When not working, Brian and Val like to take Cruise Ship holidays.
Since age 16, Brian has had a staggering 40+ years military experience. At age 40, he took some time out from the military and worked in the Chamber of Commerce, Dundee, as a manager delivering learning & development to clients in a variety age groups. He also had a 3-year spell working for Local Government, as Team Leader of an Anti-Social Behaviour Team! which he says, “made his transition to becoming a celebrant very easy”! These past working experiences have aided him in developing his consulting, listening and toned communication skills and ensure that he always listens to his clients and guides them in their aspiration to create a unique, special, unforgettable, dignified, touched with fun, personal ceremony.
Brian is based in Scone, the biggest village in Scotland! He is enthusiastic to work, guide and inspire you, and is very keen to conduct your unique ceremony, anywhere in Perth, Dundee, Angus and the Tayside surrounding areas. He is more than happy to travel to the far reaches of the Highlands, including Aberdeenshire, Moray and Inverness if required.
“Fuze provided us with the most wonderful, fantastic, and loveliest celebrant that we could ever have chosen. He made everything so personal, calm and fun! He was our calm in the storm, keeping us calm during the ceremony, and lightening the mood with some laughter, an amazing person inside and out! Would recommend 100x over.”
