Life is about the most special moments, and what is more special than your wedding day? I love being a Celebrant, meeting new people and I feel so lucky to be able to be part of your special day.
Scott loves working with couples to ensure their day is not only perfect in every way, but also that their ceremony is exactly how they want it from start to finish. Scott’s promise is to help you have the wedding you want, and one that you will remember and cherish for the rest of your lives.
Scott married his wife, Pam, in 2011 and was fortunate enough to have Anne Widdop (Fuze Founder) as their Celebrant. It was one of the first Humanist ceremonies Scott had been to, and he remembers vividly how much they both enjoyed the day and the influence they had on the ceremony.
Scott says: “We were able to make the day exactly as we wanted for us and for our family. Anne was amazing at ensuring everything was professional and respectful of the commitment we were making, but also that is was personal, fun and inclusive. It was the perfect day!”
Scott is an advocate for a Humanist wedding; not only because it can be so personalised, and also at any venue in Scotland (Scott was married at his in-laws’ farm in the Borders!), but also because of what it stands for. For Scott, Humanism means living a good life, accepting all others and being kind, caring and respectful of everyone and everything. Everyone is different, and that is to be embraced.
Only a few days after their wedding day, when lying on a beach on honeymoon, Scott remembers saying to Pam, “I loved our wedding, what a rewarding and privileged role to have been able to conduct a couples wedding day ceremony. I would love to do that.” And a few years later, Scott is truly honoured to be able to do so.
Scott believes in the importance of love, happiness, fun and family. However, Scott also takes the importance of your wedding day very seriously. His vow to you is to guide you to have the perfect day for you, and hopefully help take away some of the stress involved when organising this very special day. As a perfectionist, every detail will be considered to ensure on the day, all you both have to do is turn up, look beautiful, and say ‘I do’!
