Project Description


Mary Docherty – Wedding, Naming & Funeral Celebrant

“Life is a story … what does yours say?”

Mary is available to conduct Weddings, Vow Renewals, Baby Naming Ceremonies and Funerals.

Mary believes in the importance of celebrating life’s milestone events. That might be at the start of the journey, with a baby naming ceremony or at the end of life’s adventure with the acknowledgment of a life well lived at a funeral. It could be the warm, fuzzy bit in the middle with the celebration of a loving relationship between two people. In every event, Mary is dedicated to ensuring that your voice is at the heart of every ceremony.

For your wedding, in whatever way you choose to celebrate your love for each other, Mary will help you find the perfect words and symbols to represent you as a couple. This will be a ceremony that will be remembered by all those who witness it, and which totally reflects your love for each other in your own special way. Planning a ceremony together should be heartfelt and Mary will spend time listening to your needs and discussing all your options with suggestions if requested.
When it comes to funerals, Mary is able to create a beautifully crafted script which celebrates the life of your loved one and tells their life story perfectly.

Mary has worked as an optometrist for almost 30 years and decided to change her life’s path to do something which she felt was more her. She wanted to do something which came from the heart. She loves people, and in her job as an optometrist was always fascinated by people’s stories. Being a celebrant is perfect for Mary and being part of the defining moments in people’s lives is something she considers to be an honour.

At the centre of Mary’s world are her four children, as well as her soon to be husband Jim. Life as a mum of four is always very busy but Mary still finds time to be joint owner of a property renovation business with Jim. As well as that, she is often found in her craft shack, seldom without one of her kids and she runs a small craft company. Mary also loves being creative by upcycling old furniture. She has a strong spiritual side and loves personal development and meditation and loves travelling and discovering new places.

Mary is able to provide unique, creative and personalised ceremonies for weddings, vow renewals, baby naming, celebrations of life and funerals.

She is based in Kinross and is happy to travel throughout Scotland.


“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.”
