George was introduced to Humanist Wedding ceremonies when one of his daughters chose to get married using Fuze Ceremonies. During his daughter’s ceremony George performed the Hand Fasting symbolic gesture. He really enjoyed the freedom that a Humanist ceremony gave his daughter and son in law, which made the ceremony even more memorable for them, From then he was hooked and decided to become a celebrant himself.
George has been married to wife Alison for over 30 years and has three grown up daughters and 4 grandchildren. He very much considers himself a family man with strong humanist values that shine through in his role as a celebrant.
George has a professional background in HR and Learning & Development. His transferable skills of consulting, listening and great communication lend themselves perfectly to those needed to be a successful celebrant. He always puts his couples and families first and guides them all the way whilst creating their bespoke, safe and dignified personal ceremony.
George is based in Coatbridge and is available to conduct Wedding, Funeral and Naming Ceremonies across central Scotland and beyond. Ask for details.

"Me and my lovely new husband had the pleasure of having George guide us and support us while planning one of the most special days of our life’s.. and it would not have been the beautiful celebration it was without him. George came to visit us at our home to get to know us and get an idea of the type of ceremony we would like and with 2 minutes we felt as if we had known him forever.
I was a big bag of nerves before the wedding until George suggested a small run thru of the ceremony.. listening to George just made me so calm and took all my nerves away.
He captured everything that Steven and I are about in his brilliant words and was smiling the whole way thru our ceremony.. he was truly happy to be there. I can’t recommend this man enough. His attitude and his kindness shines through and definitely added to our magical day. X"-Zara McFaulds
