Morag Webster, Celebrant & Fuze Ceremonies Director

"I enjoy meeting people, hearing their stories and creating a personal ceremony that they truly want. I feel privileged to conduct any kind of Humanist Ceremony".

Morag is available to conduct a variety of ceremonies, including Wedding, Civil Partnership, Baby Naming & Funeral Ceremonies.

Morag became interested in Humanism through a growing desire to discover a positive, rational philosophy for life.

Her interest was first aroused by attending several humanist ceremonies as a guest. She was struck by the many vivid ways with which people were able to celebrate life’s major milestones and share the human values which had brought together so many people.

Above all, she felt they were personal, authentic and memorable events.

With a belief in Humanist Principles, Morag is someone who enjoys meeting people and has a genuine interest in helping them. Looking to combine both her skills and her interest in people, Morag decided to take a new direction in her life and joined Anne to help establish Fuze Ceremonies and the Fuze Foundation in 2012. She trained as a Celebrant with the Fuze Foundation in 2012 and has been very busy ever since.

Morag’s professional background is as an established designer in interior furniture.  But now, as a full-time Celebrant she loves the fact that she is able to meet new people on a daily basis and create something unique for them.

Customer service is at the heart of everything Morag has been doing in her career to date.

Morag lives in Falkirk and is happy to travel to Stirling, Perth & Kinross, The Lothians, Fife, Stirling, Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Grampian.

Tegan Elder, Celebrant

“Love the life you live. Live the life you love” – Bob Marley

When Tegan and her husband were planning their own wedding, they were looking for a ceremony that would capture their personalities and would provide them with the flexibility to be creative.   Tegan was inspired by this unique and personal experience and so many of her wedding guests commented on how beautiful and memorable the ceremony was.

It was this experience that interested Tegan to find out more about Humanism. She really felt a connection to the Humanist philosophy and would love to have the privilege to be part of a couple’s day. Training to become a Humanist Celebrant was the natural thing to do.

Tegan’s background is working with children and families. She embraces life and loves to be with her family and friends to ensure that she builds magical memories.  She is always very honoured to be asked to bring families together and be a part of their celebrations.  Tegan’s favourite moment of being a celebrant is watching her happy couples faces light up with sheer joy as she officially declares them as a married couple.

Elizabeth McConnell, Celebrant

"Creating wonderful memories when planning your wedding and preparing for marriage is something that’s so important and I enjoy working with couples to help them develop something personal and unique. I also want to help families arranging a funeral to make sure their loved one’s story is told and celebrated at what is a very difficult time".

Elizabeth is available to conduct Wedding Ceremonies, Baby Namings &  Funerals Ceremonies.

It’s all about you! Whether that’s creating the most wonderful day to celebrate your wedding or capturing the essence of a loved one when it’s time to say goodbye, Elizabeth believes that everyone has their own unique story to tell.

She will work closely with you to develop the perfect ceremony, helping you to choose the best way to reflect your personalities. From choosing your vows to deciding how you want to share your story, Elizabeth will be with you to make sure you create wonderful memories. She will help you to make your day as personal as possible and it can be as formal or as informal as you are.

When it comes to the end of life, Elizabeth feels that it’s just as important to have a personal celebration that captures the essence of your loved one. Attending funerals the last few years, she was struck by how impersonal some of the services were, even when the person was known to the celebrant. When reflecting on this, Elizabeth’s friends suggested to her that she would be ideally suited to spending time with bereaved families and sharing the story of their loved one.

She was attracted to the Fuze Foundation because of their commitment to reflect the wishes of the family and their contribution to addressing funeral poverty and funeral affordability.

Elizabeth lives in Cumbernauld with her 2 grown-up children and is happy to conduct weddings and funerals across North and South Lanarkshire, Glasgow, Edinburgh, East Dunbartonshire, Falkirk, Stirling or throughout Scotland.

Marjorie Russell

Marjorie Russell, Celebrant

Marjorie was inspired to become a Humanist Celebrant after attending a family wedding at Kelburn Castle in Largs.  It was meaningful, personal and different from other ceremonies she had attended and she was blown away by the flair, fun and enthusiasm of the Celebrant.   She was thinking of a career change and saw helping a couple turn their wedding dreams into reality in such a unique way was something she would really enjoy.  She found out that the Celebrant was Gillian Phillips from Fuze Ceremonies and so her new journey began.

Marjorie has been a civil servant for most of her career, working with people from all walks of life.  She has supported people through the most difficult times of their life, as well as celebrating their success and achievements. Recognising diversity and that everyone is unique she has coached and mentored many colleagues, encouraging them to share experiences and helping them achieve their full potential.  Through this she has developed excellent listening, consultation and communication skills as well as empathy and attention to detail, skills that are essential for a good Celebrant.

Building on strong foundations laid by her parents, she has a strong bond with her close and extended family and makes a real effort to maintain those family relationships both in the UK and abroad.  Having good friends and close family means there is always someone there to share the good time and the bad.  She has been married to Bruce for over 30 years and has a grown-up daughter.

Marjorie is available to conduct both wedding and funeral ceremonies and is happy to cover Edinburgh and the Lothians, Borders, Stirlingshire, Clackmannanshire and Perth.

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

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.

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.
