“Marriage is a big commitment which I take seriously and I realise it takes more than love to bind a couple together”.
John is available for Weddings Ceremonies, Baby Naming Ceremonies and Funeral Ceremonies.
Coming from a restaurant background, John has gained a wealth of experience working with the public and decided to make the leap into the world of Celebranting three years ago. Since then, he’s never looked back! John says “it’s a wonderful job conducting ceremonies in some of the most beautiful venues in Scotland, where the bridal party and guests are in great spirits and I get to share in the euphoria.”
John has been married for a mahoosive 23 years and has two beautiful girls aged 20 and 19, not to forget his gorgeous fur-baby, Dave the Groodle (retriever/poodle), who brings him joy every single day. When he’s not Celebranting and walking Dave, John loves to snowboard, road cycle and cyclo cross, and is also involved in his local Amateur Dramatics and was last to be seen on stage when he appeared in was Kipps (Half a Sixpence) where he had two parts, chalk and cheese, one a wealthy architect called Mr Maxwell, the other Uncle Bert, the main characters surrogate father.
For John, marriage is a big commitment, which he takes seriously and realises it takes more than love to bind a couple together. John loves getting to know couples, sharing in their happiness and delivering unique Ceremonies with his signature, relaxed, laid back warm and welcoming style, laced with smiles and lots of laughter. Most couples he’s married have witnessed him getting emotional, he can’t help it : )
John is based in Ayrshire and is happy to cover Ayrshire (North, South and East), Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, East and West Dunbartonshire, North and South Lanarkshire and the Greater Glasgow area.
