Getting Married in Scotland Testimonials

Kind and appreciative words from some of our wedding couples over the years, and an opportunity to share some more of Will's photos!

Sondra and Andrew
“We are deeply grateful for all the guidance and support we received on our journey to the wedding ceremony.  Angie and Will's empathy, experience and care allowed the co-creation of a spiritually profound and deeply meaningful ceremony that is the pillar of our marriage.  We cannot recommend them highly enough.”
Laura and David
“We would absolutely recommend Angie. She gave us the most beautiful ceremony, she did so much research and preparation to make it entirely personal and relevant to the two of us. She made us feel at ease and let us decide exactly what we wanted to do and say, so that we felt comfortable. So many people at our wedding came to us and told us that they loved the ceremony, that it was fun and interesting, and a little bit different, which was exactly what we wanted. Thank you Angie!”
Gillian and Ivan
“After I heard about Angie I sent her a message to ask if she was available for our wedding date - to my delight she was! From the very first time we spoke on the phone I knew she would capture the style of wedding we wanted - a blend of tradition with personal. She is so easy to work with, kind and helpful! Everyone commented on the ceremony and we couldn't have been happier with what Angie did for us. She really does go out of her way to make sure you have everything under control and support in whatever way she can. She honestly does her best to get to know you, as a couple, and deliver what you want for your day. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a minister to perform their wedding ceremony. She's a star. THANK YOU ANGIE xx”
Katherine and Andrew
“Five stars doesn't seem enough! Angie and Will are exceptional at what they do. From the moment we contacted them about our requirements, their warmth and passion for what they do shone through. Angie goes above and beyond to ensure she has captured the personalities and intimacy required for the ceremony - she really listens and makes great suggestions along the way - our wedding was perfect and all our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever witnessed.

And if there is anything you are not sure about with regards to the registry office/marriage process Angie provides great guidance on all the paperwork etc and checks in with you to remind you what needs done by when.

Will was our Celebrant on the day (and photographer) and was also a great pleasure to work with, again, so warm and friendly and keeping us at ease.

For anyone seeking a ceremony which is very personal and 'on-point' then look no further - you will certainly not be disappointed - we can't recommend Angie and Will highly enough. Outstanding friendly professionalism with an empathic touch. Thank you both so much for making our day so special”
Lucy and Ben
“Angie and Will provided us with great support and guidance in the run up to our wedding, which we found to be really helpful, friendly and caring. A great deal of effort was put into creating the right ceremony for us and we really appreciate everything they did to make our day so special and memorable! As Angie already had another ceremony taking place on our wedding date, we were delighted that Angie’s husband Will was available to not only perform our ceremony but to also take our professional wedding photos afterwards! Carrying out both roles didn’t seem to phase Will at all. Will helped to create a very relaxed and happy atmosphere during the ceremony. He then went straight into taking our photos afterwards which we are extremely pleased with. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them! Thank you both very much.”
Tanya and Adam
"Would 100% Recommend Angie to anyone looking for a humanist ceremony. From our first point of contact she was nothing but courteous, professional and helpful.  She made our special day go without flaw and she told our story to our guests with enthusiasm and delight. Many comments made by guests as to how good she was and how at no point anyone felt like it was dragging. From early on in the process of arranging things it felt like we were dealing with a friend rather than a stranger. All the best in the future Angie."
Jim and Andy
"From the moment we contacted Angie, we had nothing but the best and most professional care and attention to detail, combined with the love and personal attention Angie paid to us. We had an Idea in mind and Angie listened carefully, took our idea and then took it to another level.

We can honestly say Angie is the most wonderful, giving person and she made our wedding day the ultimate success it ended up being, communication, explanation and support were second to none - the ultimate professional but always with guiding hand to steer us clear and comfort our nerves on the day. In short this is just the most wonderful lady.

She took the pressure off us, in our ceremony worries, and won the hearts and minds of all the attendees of our wedding. Our guests were simply blown away by the content of the ceremony. We were also blown away to find that she had listened and understood what we were aiming for. 

Our wedding would have not been the same without her. This is one lady that will always have a special place in our hearts . With Love Always Angie"
Ying and Eero
"We could not have asked for anyone better to create our wedding. Angie was so lovely and patient with us and answered all of our millions of questions. She put us both at ease with her wonderfully warm personality. Her husband Will, who conducted our ceremony was equally as lovely. All together they both made our wedding, so warm and full of love. Our guests even commented on how wonderful our celebrant was. 

They say that they feel privileged to have been a part of our special day, but we definitely feel it was the other way round. We feel privileged to have found 2 people so wonderful to guide us and start us off on our next chapter."
Chaz and Jimmy
"We would just like to say a very big thank you from Mr and Mrs B for doing our ceremony. The very first meeting we had with Angie made us feel very welcome and she helped us understand what she was going to prepare for our big day. Will who conducted our ceremony - what a lovely warm and loving service you delivered for us. We would just like to say from the bottom of our hearts a very, very big thank you again."
Fiona and Lawrence
"Angie gave us the quiet, personal wedding for two we desired. Every aspect was well thought out and sensitively managed. We are very thankful that Angie ‘got us’ and helped us find the perfect location, nature itself in all its wooded glory."
Yvonne and Ben
"We can't recommend Angie highly enough. Our ceremony was planned with the greatest attention to detail. Angie took the time to really get to know us so she could create every part in a way to reflect our wants and personalities. There was great communication throughout and Angie was always ready to answer any questions we had. Then there was the actual ceremony. The gentle, kind manner in which it was presented was appreciated by all. Many guests said it was the best wedding ceremony they had been to. 
Angie is warm, friendly and reassuring. She considers all aspects and her advice and tips were greatly appreciated. As were the tissues for the emotional bride! Many thanks!"
Rachel and Anna
"First of all, we just want to say that we must have been one of the more difficult couples to work with. We’re both super busy with work, are procrastinators of the highest order, indecisive, but also wanted a highly tailored wedding ceremony. We were THAT couple who were given a very clear to do list for each meeting and call but who turned up/called in having done none of it!

My wife’s father unbelievably sadly passed away a little over a month before our wedding, which resulted in us being out of contact until less than 2 weeks before the wedding with the ceremony still to finalise, and being unsure of whether we were going to go ahead with the wedding during that time. Despite all of this Angie stayed consistently kind and supportive, and without her help organising us we honestly don’t think our day would have gone ahead...or at least certainly not as it did. 

We had some rough ideas of what we wanted for the day, but other than that we really didn’t know. Angie picked up on us as a couple really well from the first meeting, and all of her suggestions and options for our ceremony were spot on. Thanks to her guidance and much work, the ceremony we created together for our day was unique, totally us, and so perfect for what we wanted. 

On the day itself, Angie was incredibly welcoming to all our guests, and delivered our ceremony perfectly. Almost all of our guests commented on how much they loved our choice of celebrant, and the ceremony she delivered. The ceremony was our favourite part of the day, and all our guests said the same; with our guests particularly loving the handfasting section in the woods. 

Honestly, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Angie to anyone getting married, no matter the age, gender, style of ceremony, religious or spiritual beliefs. Thank you Angie from the bottom of our hearts for making our day everything it was."
Maryanne and Jason
"Angie, thank you for making our ceremony the most BEAUTIFUL ceremony anyone has ever seen. All my guests were moved to tears. Even Jason was moved to tears. Being from Canada, and knowing no one in Scotland, was most definitely a disadvantage for me. But, you were so extremely helpful, providing me with options for venues, and on deciding and contacting them. I have no idea how I would have managed without you, and your expert advice. You are one of the kindest and most personable people I have ever met, and I am so grateful that we chose you. And, I am so glad that we finally got to meet you in person. You are as lovely in person as you are on Skype. I would recommend you to anyone and everyone. Both Jason and I thank you from our hearts."
Brigit and Gary
"Angie and Will made our wedding day so special and so sweet- the thoughtfulness of sparkling fizz with strawberries for a toast, and bubbles to blow and play with for our girls, to a wonderful communication response (even despite the 7 hour time difference) and of course, the ceremony itself - Angie made it so special, her words were so thoughtful and so personal to us - our day was a dream come true. If anyone is thinking about getting married in Scotland, look no further."
Katie and Andy
"Angie was incredible. She made the whole process of deciding what to put in the ceremony so easy, talking us through step by step and made sure that we were on track with the legal paperwork. On our wedding day she put us both so at ease, especially my husband who was really nervous. She really made the ceremony so personal and welcoming. She looked the part and was just generally fantastic. We couldn't have asked for anyone better."
Clarissa and Paul
"Angie was our celebrant for our wedding last August at Mar Lodge. From when we first met Angie and shared our thoughts and our story, we felt instinctively that Angie was the perfect celebrant for us. She understood our requirement for a very personal ceremony with a touch of quirkiness that showed our personalities as well as acknowledging the importance of the ceremony itself. Angie offered step by step guidance, to ensure a smooth path of planning from start to finish. We were very appreciative of all the assistance that was offered and given. Angie brought her own sense of strength and sensitivity to the process of preparing for such an important moment which we very much appreciated. The Order of Service was prepared beautifully and was perfect. Angie was wonderful on the day itself, a calm, helpful, friendly, observant presence."
Rachel and Iain
"Thank you so much for everything Angie. I have loved working with you on making our wedding ceremony. Right from the start at planning stages you were full of useful ideas, and always very patient and gentle. All through the process all the calls and emails, and helping through making changes right up to the last minute vows from Iain! The service on the wedding day was truly beautiful and so personal and special. Everyone has been telling me how memorable and different it was. Your delivery was just perfect. Well done on finding your way to Rhilochan, I hope it wasn’t too much of a pain to get there. We are so happy that we chose to get married there, and I needn’t have worried that everyone would think it was crazy, because on the contrary, people thought it was unique. I have heard that word a lot in connection to our wedding so thank you so much for all you have done to help us have our wonderful, unique wedding ceremony. I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for someone special for their wedding and really can’t praise or thank you enough."
Emily and Niall
"Angie and Will helped us create the perfect wedding for us. We were stumped for what route to go down trying to keep everyone happy, and finding that they do tailor made (and legally binding!) weddings meant we could get it just right for everyone. The service they provided was impeccable and I genuinely missed our communication after the big day! I cannot recommend using these wonderful people enough. I should note we had to change the venue of our wedding 2 days before date, Angie and Will were amazing at rearranging last minute with no stress at all. Thanks guys, we couldn't have done it without you!"
Sheena and Kyle
"We can't thank Angie enough for all she did for our wedding last year. Skype calls, meeting at her lovely home, helping us feel relaxed and building our ceremony into something so personal and ensuring everything went without a hitch on the day. We had many little ideas we wanted to include in our ceremony and nothing was too much trouble. Alongside her husband Will, who did our wedding photography, we got everything we wanted and more. Thanks again x"
Lauren and David
"We had Angie and Will at our wedding in February. I would pick this wonderful couple again and again! I could not recommend their attention to detail, their wonderful caring nature, and their genuine interest in us as a couple enough to anyone! We got exactly what we wanted and more in our ceremony and wedding photos.

Angie and Will, you both made our wedding ceremony and pictures to be the absolute best we could ever have imagined. Some of the photos I couldn't believe they had been taken as I don't even remember Will being that close to me, or at certain angles! We loved it. And we have thoroughly recommended you both to anyone that will listen!”
Heather and Lachie
"Angie and Will were absolutely brilliant throughout the process of creating our wedding ceremony. Will was fabulous on the day - we all warmed to him so quickly - even one of the flower girls tugged at his tailcoat during the ceremony! If you are thinking of having an interfaith celebrant, we definitely recommend them!"
Judie and Sammy
"Angie conducted a renewal of vows for us in Inverness. We had a sort of traditional Scottish wedding with a ceremony including a hand binding and jumping the broom taking the leap into a new chapter together. Angie was fantastic and after meeting we knew instantly she was the one we wanted to conduct our ceremony, she then tailored the ceremony around us as a couple and even on the rehearsal the night before she had that calming approach giving us reassurance and advising where required. This was a very special day for us and Angie just made it perfect with the beautiful words and experience she has - the ceremony was absolutely perfect. We cannot speak highly enough of this lady and if we ever decide to do this again we would go back in a second. Highly recommend to anyone wishing to be married or renewing the wedding vows."
Katherine and Derrick
"Angie was a HUGE part of making our wedding day so enjoyable. She created us a beautiful ceremony and was beyond supportive during our planning. All our guests commented on how funny and personal and warm our ceremony was and we thoroughly enjoyed it. She is fabulous."
Cuchy and Marty
"What a meaningful and heartfelt ceremony we had. I cannot thank Angie and Will enough for making our day so special.
If you want to have a different and tailormade ceremony for you, do not hesitate to contact this lovely couple."
Jane and Roy
"Angie, we just wanted to say thank you so much for giving us an amazing wedding ceremony. It was perfect, we absolutely loved it and from what we've heard so did everyone else. Had so many compliments about how lovely you were and how the ceremony suited us to a T, which is exactly what we wanted.

Really can't thank you enough for all your help and support on the day and before. It's funny before the wedding we were both just looking forward to getting the ceremony over and get on with the celebrating but we both said the next day that it was our favourite part of the day, and we wouldn't have changed a thing!"
Cari and Angus
"Angie was amazing! A truly bespoke service that included calming us down and helping navigate the "how". Truly a compassionate soul. We are still celebrating and will always be so grateful for all that you did for us."
Pam and Robert
"We had a beautiful wedding day with Angie conducting the ceremony. She was just perfect for us. Love and gratitude, always. Xx"
Steph and Scott
"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help with preparing our wedding ceremony. We had a wonderful day in a very relaxed atmosphere, it was everything we could have hoped for and more!

Your guidance was imperative to creating a ceremony that resonated with everyone in our families.  Steph even had a comment from her parents this morning saying how lovely the ceremony was! And that's saying something. Once again, many thanks!"
Chelsea and Michael
“We want to say a huge huge thank you to you, our ceremony was just so perfect! We’ve had so many lovely comments about how personalised it was and how we managed to express our love in such a lovely way without being soppy. It truly was special, so thank you for making it so!”
Jo and Ged
“We just wanted to say a huge thank you from both of us for taking us on this journey of ours and guiding us and supporting us all the way. The church ceremony couldn't have been more perfect and you really did do an awesome job!! So thank you so much for everything! The force is with us always!!!”
Christine and Alex
“We just want to thank you SO VERY MUCH for celebrating our wedding! The wedding was so lovely!  Despite the running around and craziness leading up to the wedding, the wedding itself was wonderful! Thank you so so very much Angie, everyone commented on what a great job you did and how they could all hear you (even if they couldn’t hear us!) Blessings and gratitude.”
Susan and Kevin
“We would once again like to thank you for the wonderful ceremony you performed for us. So many people commented on how personal it was. We had the most amazing day but it was over far too quickly. Once again thank you from both of us you helped make it a special day. We would certainly recommend you to others.”
Nicky and Nigel
“Well, where do we start? We cannot begin to thank you both enough.

Angie - the ceremony that you put together encapsulated everything that we could have wished for, and more.

Will - the way you spoke, with emotion yet interspersed with humour, was amazing.

So many people, just about everybody at the wedding in fact, have complimented us on the ceremony, how personal it was and how individual too. Words fail us. You have given us memories that will last a lifetime and we thank you with all our hearts. Wishing you both love and happiness wherever you go and whatever you do.”
Lyndsay and Euan
“We would like to thank you for making our wedding ceremony very special and heart warming. We keep getting flashbacks which bring a massive smile to our faces, we’re still like Cheshire Cats :-) Angie you are just wonderful and a lovely caring person! It was an honour to have you do our ceremony! We can't thank you enough.”
Claire and Daniel
“We really appreciated your input on the run up to and on the day. The Skype sessions were very useful. We’ve had several guests comment on how personable the ceremony was and, in particular, our parents felt that you knew us well! It was clear that you considered our wishes for the day.

We’d just like to thank you for the calming influence that you brought to the day, for both of us. We both felt comfortable and that we knew you despite not meeting in person until the wedding day. 

In general, the run up to the ceremony and the day itself ran smoothly. We feel that this is largely due to your planning and preparation that you shared with us beforehand.”
Melinda and Nick
"As Nick and I are celebrating our one year anniversary today, we wanted to reach out and thank you again for the wonderful experience we had with you last July. It is a day we will never forget, and you helped make it so special for us. We have the fondest memories of our very personal ceremony, and gorgeous pictures which we enjoy looking at every day. I cannot help but smile each time I look at our photos, as they amazingly capture the joy I was feeling in that moment. And I still feel emotional when I think of the words we exchanged outside Duffus Castle that day. We feel so lucky to have those incredible memories and are forever grateful to you both. We hope you are doing well and are continuing to help others like us!"
Lori and Clive
"Our day on October 1st at Belladrum, was the most perfect day. You and Will are a fabulously warm and caring couple, the service and readings you put together were the most moving, romantic, intimate and faultless ceremony, which included laughter and a few tears due to its most perfect tone.

You are a very talented couple, warm and caring, we couldn't have hoped for better, Clive and I will always remember that special day, and that's thanks to you and Will.

The photos that Will sent made my recovery much easier, the nurses on the wards all looked through them and said how amazing it all looked.

We are forever in your debt for making our day so very special. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you, and wish you both well in your married life together too. If you are as happy as we are, we are truly blessed."
Sheena and Stuart
"We have just picked up our wedding DVD & have watched it 3 times so far :)

I just wanted to say how great you made our ceremony, it really was beautiful. The ceremony is and always will be the favourite part of our wedding day.

I meant to email you after the wedding to let you know the lovely comments we received from our guests regarding the ceremony. Lots of people liked how personal it was to us. Everyone really enjoyed the ceremony and we would like to say thank you for that.

You really did an amazing job with our ceremony, it was everything we could have wanted."
Alyson and Paul
"Thinking back to the day itself, we couldn't have been happier with how it went. We loved the ceremony, and lots of our family and friends have commented on how much they enjoyed it and how special they thought it was. For us it struck just the right balance between retaining the gravity of a traditional religious ceremony, but being personal to us and our beliefs. That was something we thought would be difficult to achieve and you did it perfectly. When we were originally thinking about what we wanted in a ceremony, we felt frustrated at what we thought was going to be a choice between a traditional religious, civil or humanist ceremony, none of which fitted with who we are. Many of our friends expressed the same surprise and delight as we experienced when we first spoke to you, that there was such a perfect alternative in what you created.

Also, thank you for coming to our dinner on the Friday night - particularly on behalf of all our parents who were really pleased to get the chance to chat to you before the day itself. It made everyone feel really comfortable and so thank you for taking the time to do that.

I also found the rehearsal really useful, especially your attention to detail and gentle insistence that we went over things until we were sure they were right. I found it really reassuring to have done that when the time came to walk up the aisle for real. I thought you struck a perfect balance between humour (particularly humouring the "mini bridesmaids" stand ins!) and covering what we actually needed to do. I also felt you were really on our side when everyone around us was chipping in with ideas, and able to intercede on our behalf when it all got a bit much.

The preparation suited us really well. It was good to be able to meet and to Skype initially, as well as having the email contact. I thought your guidance and suggestions for the material to prepare the ceremony was great, it really prompted us to think about what was important to us, both for the ceremony and for our relationship in general. Throughout the process I felt that you really listened to what we wanted and took great skill and care in crafting it into words.

There's really nothing I can say that would have made it any better, it was just exactly what we had wanted without even knowing that we did. So really all there is to say is thank you again for playing such an important part in our day."
Kelly and Greg
"I was just watching the DVD I made of our Vow Renewal today and thinking how special it was - and how a great majority of that was due to you!! It amazes me that you were able to create a ceremony with heartfelt words that were so personal and intimate. It felt like I'd known you for years instead of minutes!"
Lesley-Anne and Tony
"We think you needed a holiday after all the energy you both put into our wedding. We would both like to say how much we loved everything about it, and the way it was personalised purely to us. You did an excellent job and we will never forget it and we hope we can work as well as a team like yourselves. Had a look at the pics and they're brilliant!"
Paula and Steve
"Thank you so much for everything you did for us. It was your calming presence and advice which enabled us to make our dream ceremony a reality - A MASSIVE THANK YOU!

We had an amazing day followed by a dream honeymoon. Thanks again, we couldn't have done it without you."
Susan (Mother of the Groom)
"My feet have just touched the ground and I now have time to write and say thank you for such a beautiful wedding ceremony last weekend at Haddo House Chapel.

My husband and I have had so many letters from family and friends stating that it was one of the most meaningful and relevant services that they have ever been to and I have to agree. Your relaxed manner set the scene and you told Jenny and Angus's story brilliantly. It was informal, amusing, and yet the importance of the event was never lost.

Sadly a lot of our friends thought that temporary loss of the ring was staged, not sure that says a lot for the Hanks Clan!! In its own way the drama only added to the event. You were very calm but I am sure under your swan like elegance your feet were paddling fast!!

We were so impressed with your preparations and including all those who were important. I know that my Mother was particularly touched by her inclusion and the relevance of the hand tying.

I hear you do a very good Christening so I hope we meet again in the future!!"
Rona (Mother of the Bride)
"We have received a lot of congratulations on all aspects of the wedding and I thought you'd like to hear some of the comments specifically about the ceremony. Here are a selection of quotes from cards received in the last couple of days:

"It was all so perfect; all my favourite hymns and a beautiful service"  
"The chapel service was delightful - so personal"
"The service was very personal and the celebrant did a great job"
"The marriage ceremony was the most personal I have ever attended .....made the wedding guests so much part of it all"
"The chapel was a beautiful setting and the ceremony a mixture of relaxed and formal somehow. I've never witnessed a handfasting before......the symbolism of the tied ribbons at the end was perfect!"
"The service was so personal and different that made it the nicest we have ever enjoyed. The bird, the story, the ring and tartan bonding provided outstanding memories..."

I remember saying to Jenny many months ago that since the ceremony itself is central to a wedding, I felt it was important to choose her celebrant with care. I hoped she would choose someone who could conduct the ceremony with dignity but no stuffiness, acknowledging the seriousness of the commitment but calming any nervousness and putting us all at our ease. You did all that wonderfully.

I will admit to some anxiety as the search for the ring continued but was confident that you would manage the situation smoothly. And I was right! All in all it was a truly memorable ceremony and a wonderful day."
Emily and James
"Thank you so much again for all the work you did to make our wedding so fantastic.  It was beyond all our expectations and we're all still talking about how great it was!  You did an amazing job of capturing us and our relationship and it felt like the perfect ceremony for us.

We will always remember our special day and we also got a lot out of the preparation for the ceremony which I think will really help us navigate the ups and downs of our lives ahead."
Karen and Phil
"What a fantastic day and made extra special by your lovely ceremony - everyone especially ourselves loved it :)
Our friend  has been telling all her friends how relaxed and different it was and has asked for your details."
Sarah and Ally
"The feedback we had about the wedding were amazing, my mum who was a bit concerned that it was going to turn into pagan ritual, actually said she had to eat humble pie, she said she was overwhelmed by how personal it was and how true to myself and Ally it was. A lot of people said it was the best wedding ceremony they had attended. I have to admit that both myself and Ally also feel the same way. It reflected us and our beliefs and what is important to us.
 
We really appreciated being able to meet face to face and also have a run through before the big day. It was comforting to know that we could email or phone you if we had any questions. Everything we wanted to happen did and it was exactly the way we wanted it. Your guidance with readings was invaluable too. I have to say the Bunchrew House Hotel were amazing, they were so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Also Highland Design who did all the décor were brilliant, even when I was being a nightmare and changing the colours of tablecloths and chair covers at the last minute.
 
We can't thank you enough for the day, it was perfect. We may call on you to do a naming ceremony after the new arrival makes an appearance. Cannot thank you enough for all the help and for making our wedding day an amazing and special day."
Nadia and Paul
"We were so glad to have you a part of our day, you were such an important part of our wedding and will forever be a part of the foundation of our marriage. Our guests kept talking about how wonderful you were as an officiant, that you were so vibrant and spirited in telling the story of our union and that you made the ceremony all the more beautiful with how you spoke. You have a gentle spirit that helped guide us through such an important day in our lives, and we know without a doubt that you were the right person to do it. Thank you a million times over.

Will was an absolute delight, he is so entertaining and happy and wonderful, it made for a great experience.. I hope he had a good time!

Thank you with all of our hearts. The day could not have been any more perfect."
Elizabeth and Larry
"We are just overwhelmed with how well the wedding turned out - it was wonderful. Your charges are totally in line with the great service you provide. Thank you again everything was great!"
Viv and Martin
"Thank you so much for making our day so wonderful! We did indeed hang about the lifeboat station for a wee while after the ceremony, but mainly to talk to Gordon to let him know how delighted and surprised we were to see how he had prepared the boat, and of course to share a dram with him. He was also very complimentary about you and the ceremony, as were our family and friends.

We felt our day could not have gone better. Everything worked to plan (apart from me almost forgetting about my flowers!) and the atmosphere during the event and back at the party afterwards was amazing. Everyone there got into the spirit of giving, with, I think, just about all of the two kegs consumed, impromptu pool challenges with winnings going to the defib pot and many bank notes being shoved in as well. Even the tourists in the bar joined in, and a couple of friends brought their business meeting with a client to the Ben' rather than miss out on any of the fun.

So as far as our goal of raising £2000 to install a defib is concerned - we don't have the final figures yet but we are confident that we have raised enough. Your contribution will be part of that! So thank you for that as well.

Your ceremony has made a difference to us - thank you."
Vikki and Alan
"We just wanted to say a massive thank you for EVERYTHING! You made us feel so at ease and comfortable from the moment we had our first Skype call and we really enjoyed creating the ceremony with you. The atmosphere on the day was just perfect and so many people have commented on what a gorgeous celebration of love and life it was and what an honour it was to be a part of. Even my Dad was gushing about it, so I think we did good :-) 

We also wanted to say thank you for the love and support you gave after the rehearsal - it was a bit of a difficult time and to have you around really gave us the strength to deal with the situation. So thank you :-)"
Jessika and Eric
"Thank you for being a very important part of our wonderful day!"
Katherine (who attended our wedding)
"We've just got home from your wedding. And before the feelings fade into memory I just wanted to say how totally, utterly exquisite your wedding was! The ceremony was genuinely one of the most beautiful things I've ever witnessed. I've never seen a couple marrying with such depth, presence, tenderness and integrity. It was incredibly moving, humbling and a total privilege to be a part of. So thank you for such inspiration."
Kristin and Damon
"We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything.  You were the absolute best and we loved Will and Mattie!  Could not have had a better audience.  Anyways, you are such a great spirit and you added so much to our wonderful ceremony and we loved every minute of it."
Lisa and Bryan
"We had a fantastic day thank you ! Everyone is still talking about it and commenting on how beautiful the ceremony was and how personal it was :D thank you so so much !

It was an absolute pleasure to have you part of our special day :)

Thank you so much Angie :) you have been more than our minister, you have been a great friend to us both and we cannot thank you enough for helping and guiding us the right way to make our day so special :)"
Fiona and Richard
"Thank you so much – the service was just perfect and so many people told us how beautiful it was. Many a tear was shed apparently."
Jenn and Scott
"Many thanks for a beautiful ceremony.  Scott and I are so happy with how everything went.  We're grateful that it was in your good hands and really reflected our thoughts and intentions.  It was such a beautiful day!  We are so happy. Thank you."
Anita and Chris
"We just wanted to send a MASSIVE thank you to yourself for saturday and all your hard work leading up to the big day. The ceremony was everything we both wanted and we could not have done it without your support, knowledge, understanding and kindness. Couldn’t ask for more from you. So from the very bottom of our hearts . . . thank you!! You made our day!"
Helen and Ross
"The ceremony was so beautiful!!  We were SO happy with it. We loved it, it was so personal.  You are definitely in the right job, thank you so much."
Katie and Ross
"We cannot believe we have been married for almost 3 weeks! It's still surreal.  We've both been wanting to email since we went on our honeymoon - but had no signal in our cottage for the 2 weeks.  We got back at the weekend and didn't want to rush what we wrote to you.
 
There's no grander or more impressive way we can put it, than 'Thank you'.  Our ceremony was without question the most utterly wonderful experience.  It could not have been more perfect in any way.  Your delivery and timing was incomparable and you would have thought you had known us forever.  Your warmth and grace came across in abundance and it meant that our service was simply.. well .. perfect.  The church was just filled with this sheer profusion of happiness, everyone was smiling, the feeling of joy just exuded from everyone's smiles and laughter, but it didn't feel that there was too much joking, because your delivery of the address and the prayer as well our vows gave the whole occasion the dignity that it deserved. 
 
Every single guest said that it was by far the most beautiful, touching and special wedding they have ever been to.  We've both been to weddings before and obviously we're biased because this was ours, but honestly, it was the most enchanting and moving thing we've ever experienced and we know that a lot of our guests felt that too.  Our flowers were breath-taking and the church was out of this world, but it really came down to what you said, how you said it and the joy that we both felt becoming husband and wife. It was absolutely magical.  So, as lame it sounds when we want to express it so much better... we could never thank you enough for doing that for us.
 
From the bottom of our hearts thank you for our day.  And thank you for all the time and attention you gave us leading up to it and settling our minds and getting us prepared.  You've been a complete delight."
Anna and Michael
"Thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for the most amazing ceremony.  It was everything we hoped for and more.  You did a wonderful job and we actually had a lot of comments saying it was the best ceremony they have attended.  Also people liked your calming voice.  Anyway I hope you had as much fun as we did."
Caroline and Rob
"Our wedding was absolutely perfect! Exactly what we wanted! In fact in all honesty so much better than I imagined it could have been.

I thought getting married on a isolated beach in Scotland was always going to be a challenge with the weather and logistics...... and then I broke my collarbone! However with yours and Will's help we had an absolutely lovely day!

With your help and direction we were able to get married in a place very special to us! From start to finish you guided us to be able to create an absolutely fabulous unforgettable day. On our wedding day you brought everything together with a lovely informal efficiency, which was just fantastic.

The ceremony was exactly what we wanted, capturing the spirit of our relationship brilliantly with both humour and emotion. Best wedding we have ever been too, and it was ours!!!! We both send our heart felt thanks."
Jenny and Ian
"Just thought I would let you know we received the photos today and are very pleased with them.

We both thought you and Angie did a fantastic job of our wedding it could not have better, it was so personal and simple, just as we wanted it.

We thought Angie was great they way she incorporated what we are and how we felt about each other into the ceremony and your photos really capture the day.

We really were so impressed by how much thought and care had gone into everything, from the lovely bottle (actually I thought it was much nicer than champagne, I would buy it to drink in summer if I lived there!) to the little note you pinned on the cross for us. I wasn’t sure what Dad would think of the service as all the weddings he has attended have been traditional ones, but he was just blown away by it, he thought the job you both did could not have been bettered (‘outstanding at what they do’ was his description of you both!) I especially was impressed at how great Will was with Liam, kind but firm, and he was so chuffed to ‘help’ with the equipment."
Anne-Marie and Andrew
"Thank you so much for your lovely service. We had a great day and everyone enjoyed themselves.  Thank you for all your help with ceremony and planning in the months prior to it. All your help was much appreciated."
Heather and Dom
"Thank you both for making today so fab :) we thoroughly enjoyed it and the lovely relaxed atmosphere couldn't have suited us better!"
Vicky and Scott
"We had such an amazing day and most of that was down to you guys!! So a massive thank you!! I loved the ceremony - it was perfect even with the tide!! Lol!!"
Amy and Calum
"Just wanted to say how grateful we are for all your hard work and for a lovely day on Thursday. Everyone has commented on how personal our ceremony was and how it was "very us". We were so lucky that everything came together so well and we are in no doubt that was to do with the part you played in our big day."
Christiane and Robin
"Thank you for the lovely ceremony! It was such a great day and will be forever with us."
Kya and Ashley
“Before we met Angie, we thought our wedding would just be another day, a very special day.....but we would simply turn up and enjoy the proceedings. We had no concept of the journey we would take as a couple, to prepare for the big day to come.
When we met Angie, we were overwhelmed by the emotional support and guidance she provided through the journey of marriage.
She supported us through that transition, helping us look inside ourselves, really see each other and the future that we were creating by getting married. This foundation has created a marriage in which we are able to trust and support each other even when extremely difficult events have arisen. It was the most romantic day of our lives. Emotional, Spiritual and all that we had hoped for. Getting married in an amazing location surrounded by the people we loved, orchestrated by a very unique person.
Thank you so much Angie you didn't just make our day you've provided us with the tools to help nurture a marriage where our bond grows and deepens every day."

Will was our photographer for the wedding. He helped us talk about our expectations and what we really wanted, which prior to meeting him had not occurred to me. On the day we were barely aware of him taking photos except the formal photos which despite many of us being uncomfortable with photos being taken proved to be a pleasurable experience. Seeing the results after was delightful, we not only liked the pictures but we loved so many of them. We feel that Will really captured the essence of us and the day and our photos are not just another bunch of wedding photos but are who we are and what we love. Thank you Will it was such a pleasure to have you at our wedding. You are a delight to be around and you bring out the best in people, even the grumpy ones!”

Becca and Matt
“We can't thank you enough for our beautiful ceremony,  it really was lovely. Lots of our guests commented how special it was, the day couldn't have got any better. Thanks again for everything you've done.”
Rachel and Ewan
“A big THANK YOU for all you did in the lead up to, and on the day of our wedding. We were really happy with the ceremony, your delivery and your calming oversight on the day.

So many people have been in touch to say what a lovely personal ceremony it was, and how they had relaxed and enjoyed it, so we couldn't be happier!

We both had a fantastic day. Thanks again for all your help and support leading up to and including the day.  You made it all very easy.”
Iska and Chris
“We would like to thank you for the most perfect and touching ceremony. It was amazing and so well delivered, very few dry eyes. All our guests commented on the ceremony, they loved the content, as it was so personal. They all loved the clear and warm way you spoke throughout, even the German contingency was able to understand most.
Most of all you made myself and Chris feel very comfortable, I was so nervous, but you managed to keep me calm. I'm still impressed that both Chris and I managed to read our vows without any big hiccups.

A big massive thank you for everything! Feel yourself hugged.”
Angela and Ian
“Thanks again for the hard work you did in putting together the perfect ceremony for us.

A number of our guests commented especially on how absolutely perfectly your suggestion of the Celtic Declarations of Intent worked for us (once they got over a momentary panic that Ian was being given the chance to misbehave...) and generally on how suitable the whole ceremony was for us.”
Kat and James
“Thank you again for a fabulous ceremony, everyone loved it so much and we are still getting people saying how different and beautiful it was.”
Kathy and Glenn
“You are an amazing woman!!! It was absolutely fantastic and we couldn't have hoped for anything better. It made me cry for all the right reasons - thank you. We wouldn’t change a thing.”
Ruth and David
“When we first met it was hard to get our heads around what the ceremony would look like. We really appreciated how you guided us with what we needed to think about, and how you broke everything down into sections. We enjoyed thinking about our relationship, and taking the time to put our thoughts into words. When we read the first draft of the ceremony and could see how you’d brought everything together and created an order and a flow, we realized what a lot of work goes in behind the scenes – the ceremony was so personal, so perfect, and so much more than we had imagined, and we were thrilled.”
Ambreen and Calum
“Thanks you so much again for everything. The ceremony was just perfect. So many people have commented on how lovely it was and in particular all the ones from Barra, that are used to attending traditional marriages in the church.”
Maggie and Hugo
“We wanted a ceremony that wasn't religious, but that was very personal.  Angie was a perfect fit for what we were looking for - she was able to tailor our ceremony to our exact needs.  
 
Whilst we had only met Angie over skype video (so 21st Century!) we felt instantly at ease with her and felt a strong connection throughout the planning process.  Angie was an absolute joy to work with - taking care to help us think through the commitment we were about to make and the different ways we could create a shared experience with our closest friends and family.
 
After the ceremony, we received so many comments from our guests about how wonderful it was - everyone appreciated the personal sentiments and stories that captured the essence of us as a couple.  We would recommend Angie to anyone looking for someone to help them create a meaningful and memorable marriage ceremony.”  
Fran and Gary
“We both want you to know that our wedding was simply perfect, everything we'd hoped for - including the brisk weather which seemed to bring the beach alive. Your part was crucial and you played it beautifully. Thank you so much for your wise words, caring approach and genuinely thoughtful ceremony. We both felt that you belonged in our crowd of friends, and for us that is a special recognition. Please keep doing what you're doing and continue to inspire and make people happy. You helped to create a memory that we shall never forget and all of it was wonderful.”
Sarah and Graham
“Angie was wonderful and the ceremony she put together was perfect. It was personal and meaningful whilst also being fun, for us and our guests - many who commented that it was the best ceremony they had heard.

In addition to day itself, the support Angie gave us in preparing was invaluable in helping us develop our thoughts on what was important to us as well as working out the logistics of how it would all happen.  From the first time we spoke we felt reassured that we were in good hands - we could not recommend her more.”
Fiona and Stuart
“Right from the start, Angie made us feel relaxed and reassured that the Interfaith Ministry and in particular Angie, were the right choices for us.  The ministry matched our beliefs and Angie's warm and really caring approach gave us confidence that our marriage would be very special and particular to us and it was. 

We both felt comforted that support would be there no matter what we needed as the big day approached.  Angie’s guidance was invaluable in creating our own ceremony and the way she pulled it together was perfect. 

Every meeting with Angie made us feel special and unique - she is such a good listener and picks up on the important and sometimes unspoken things.  She really got to know us so that in the final preparations and on the day it was like being married by a good friend and that was really nice.

So many of our guests and friends said how unique, emotional and romantic they found our ceremony.  Just as many said how great they thought Angie was, especially her voice and demeaner. So, thank you Angie for helping us create a fantastic day and equally fantastic start to our married life together.”
Ciara and Dylan
“We were thrilled with our perfect day. Marriage was never a priority in our relationship, but when we decided to plan a day to celebrate our love for each other we could never have dreamed it would be so special. Working with you both seemed so natural and right, and when we stepped into the Nature Sanctuary we were both blown away by the special atmosphere you’d created. Everything was exactly how we would have wanted it to be. We never thought we could have a wedding ‘our way’ but with your support and guidance we had what will always be remembered as one of our most perfect days, and we have the most gorgeous photos to remind us.”
Barbara and Don
"Thank you so much for holding our ceremony and legally marrying us with grace and beauty."
Lucy and Paul
"We can’t thank you enough for our perfect ceremony. We had a wonderful day, the ceremony will never be forgotten by us."
Lisa and Sandy
"Angie made us feel that our day was the most important day, she allowed time and effort to visit with us and hear our stories about how we met, what we meant to each other and get to know us as individuals, as well as a couple. Angie allowed for us to choose the way we wanted the ceremony to be and what we wanted to include - this we both felt was an invaluable quality and something which made our special day that extra bit more special. We were overwhelmed by Angie’s ability to interpret how we felt about each other and to put this across to all out family and friends, it was very much and honour to have Angie be a part of the day and we thank her deeply."
Linda and Terry
"Are you sure we never met before our wedding?............... everything you wrote was spot on - you my dear are truly gifted and we're so glad we found you.........when we first read through the ceremony we had goosebumps and tears in our eyes and the same happened to friends at work when they read it.......waterproof mascara was a must on "The" day.........:) which was just perfect."
Mairi and Scott
"Thank you so very much for a wonderful service. Everything was just perfect and you were everything we wanted! So many of our guests also think you were brilliant, and my granny hasn't stopped raving about you. You almost upstaged us ;) Again thank you so much!"
Rachael and Andrew
“We wanted to write to thank you so very much for making our wedding day so unique, intimate and very very special for us. It was in every possible way exactly the day we both dreamed of. Your words were beautiful and completely encapsulated all that is important and meaningful for us as a couple and as individuals.

Andrew’s family we think were a little sceptical about the way we planned to do things but they have all said that it was the most moving ceremony they have seen and set in such a beautiful location. Both yourself and Will made us feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you so much.”
Mylie and Jason
“We wanted a simple ceremony that matched our personalities and incorporated natural elements and Scottish traditions. We had no idea how to begin, but we stumbled upon Angie and Will's website and instantly felt a connection with them based on what we read. I emailed Angie and she got back to me right away with such enthusiasm and sincerity.

All along Angie and Will were overwhelmingly helpful and truly made our dreams come true. We felt so comfortable and confident every step of the way. We had no stress whatsoever, even when working on legal documents, just bliss!

Our ceremony was perfect and the happiest day of our lives. Angie and Will truly listened to what we wanted and everything was smooth and beautiful. I can't imagine our special day without them. They suggested things to us that we would never have thought of on our own, such as gathering local stones for our ceremony circle and having a wedding toast in a quaich.

Thank you so much for helping us have the most beautiful and memorable day of our lives. You are both amazing people and we are so blessed to have had the pleasure to meet you. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts.”
Donna and Dave
“You hardly know us in terms of the time you've spent with us, yet the ceremony sounded like you knew us perfectly! We're amazed at just how well you hit the tone we wanted - it helped us really look forward to the day and feel so much calmer.

Thank you so much for what was an incredible and wonderful ceremony. You gave us the best ceremony and day - we simply can't thank you enough or come up with enough words to say how perfect a job you did for us all. You gave us the best start to our marriage and life together as a family. We would certainly recommend you without any hesitation.”
Elisa and Dan
“We have enjoyed telling all our friends and family about our fantastic wedding in Scotland, and how wonderful you both were at making our day so special. We truly had a happy day that we'll remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you for all you've done to help make this day not only work, but really shine.

We had such a beautiful and special day that we'll remember and treasure forever. You put together a ceremony that reflected us so well; it was really perfect. We were lucky that the weather was perfect too!”
Diana and Bob
"We wanted a private, relaxed, intimate and meaningful ceremony.  We found Angie and Will online and liked the fact that they work as a team.  Angie offered ideas for the ceremony venue, and Will was eager to help us achieve our vision of having both pictures of our ceremony, plus pictures of us enjoying Edinburgh immediately after the ceremony - in a pub raising a glass, with Edinburgh Castle in the background, and in beautiful gardens. Angie had a smile throughout the ceremony adding genuine warmth and feeling into all her words, and Will took fantastic photographs making the most of all our surroundings - we appreciated his warmth and friendliness, his sense of fun, his eye for a good shot and his flexibility.  He wanted for us whatever we wanted for ourselves, and was happy to give us all our photographs on a memory stick for us to make whatever prints we wanted - we appreciated there was no pressure to have something we didn't want.  Not having family and friends with us, we appreciated how both Angie and Will went out of their way to make sure we had a great day."  
Tanja and Dirk
“Ours was the most brilliant, amazing and perfect ceremony ever - we had a fantastic wedding at a fantastic location with you fantastic guys. We just want to thank you for your precious support and the overwhelming ceremony and your beautiful presence - what a pleasure! Thank you, thank you, thank you, it was so very special for us.”
Liz and David
“The whole day was perfect but especially the ceremony. Thank you so much for guiding us towards what we wanted it to be like and for weaving the final piece. We think you officiated just perfectly with a combination of friendliness and authority which guided everyone through what they were doing. We're so glad we found you on the web. Thank you once again for creating our perfect marriage ceremony. We shall treasure those memories for the rest of our lives.”
Isla and Rob
“As soon as we began planning our wedding we knew that we wanted it to be personal and meaningful to us, and not just a cookie cutter service. At the same time, we felt that we couldn’t adhere to the strict rules set out by the humanists or registrar not allowing us to mention words like ‘God’, Spirit’ or ‘Angels’ in our ceremony and we wanted to be able to express our beliefs around what marriage means to us personally, rather than what it means to the church.

The regular contact with Angie during the weeks leading up to the actual day felt very supportive, and this proved important on the big day as we felt we were in safe hands and so could just focus in on Angie and Will's words and each other, and completely relax and enjoy ourselves once the ceremony had begun and our nerves had settled.

The whole process from meeting to discuss our personal views and faith, to the creation by Angie of our very own, unique and individual ceremony, to the actual day when Will and Angie held our service in our local community hall, was a total joy.
We highly recommend Will and Angie as ministers, and an interfaith ceremony as it allows you to stay true to yourself and your faith, whatever that is, on one of the most important days of your life.”
Elisa and Roy
“You gave us the most wonderful wedding and no amount of words would be able to express how grateful we are to the both of you. We're not sure whether we would have had to give up our dream of marrying at Huntly Castle without you, so the fact that you didn't need a license to marry us there because you're a minister, and the fact that you were completely accepting of our personal beliefs, meant that we knew we had found the right person to hold our ceremony.

We enjoyed the creative process of answering your questions, and were astounded when we first read through what you'd written for us, it was so evident that a huge amount of work and care and attention to what we'd said had gone into our ceremony - a ceremony unique and personal and all about us - it was so much more than we'd hoped for or expected.

On the day because you were so relaxed and at ease, so were we. It was a magical day, and words really can't express how perfectly you held the ceremony. All our family and friends were as moved and immersed in the ceremony as we were, and afterwards they all expressed how welcomed and included they felt, and how they enjoyed our very different ceremony.”
Lynn and Des
“We wanted a short, simple and personal ceremony and more than that we weren’t sure. When we decided to get married on a Sunday we didn’t realise that limited our options. When we found you we heaved a sigh of relief.

It was fun going through the questions you gave us and we enjoyed looking back to when we met and our time together since. The ceremony you put together for us was everything we wanted - it was light, and joyful, and funny, and personal. We were delighted that all our friends and family enjoyed that the ceremony was so unique and different, so welcoming, and so fitting for us - they all said that was exactly how a wedding should be - all about the bride and groom.

We'll be getting back in touch with you for a baby blessing when the time comes! Thanks for everything.”
Sharon and Paul
“When we decided to marry in Scotland we knew of no-one who could perform the ceremony but two friends highly recommended Angie and Will. We were not disappointed with the friendly and professional service they provided.

When we first spoke with Angie we both instantly felt that this would be the lady who would perform the ceremony. We discussed our past, faith, future hopes and dreams and then Angie put together a unique service for us.

We married outside in 18 inches of snow, in temperatures that were below 0. A log fire crackled away in the background. Angie played subtle music for us to walk out to and provided a church candle flickering away in a beautiful glass vase. When she pronounced us husband and wife she threw the most gorgeous red rose petals to ‘seal the deal’! From start to finish it was uniquely our ceremony and our thanks go to her and Will always for helping us have such a special day.”
Katherine and Gavin
“We cannot praise Angie and Will highly enough for the way they held our wedding ceremony and we feel it was an honour and a privilege to have them marry us. For us as a couple it was important that our wedding ceremony be a true reflection of our personalities, beliefs and our love. Together they held the entire process with warm generosity and professionalism.

During the year leading up the wedding Will and Angie held us beautifully and guided us through the intricacies of the process with grace and strength. They listened deeply to our histories, hopes and challenges and entwined them into a ceremony that best reflected us as individuals and a couple. They gave us space to reflect and at no point did we feel pressured to be a certain way or have a ceremony that fitted around them. We feel they respected our beliefs and requests and made every effort to make the whole process as sacred, inspiring and joy-filled as possible. Between them they created a ceremony which was clear and inclusive. Whatever the belief or world-view held by each of the guests, they were honoured and welcomed.

Many afterwards commented on how moving it had been to witness a ceremony that was so personal and loving. Our heart-felt thanks for helping to make our wedding ceremony truly magical and for being there to support us on all levels.”
Jas and Spence
“Angie supported our decision to get married on the beach. Her communication and flexibility, guided us through the process of getting married in a loving, caring and supportive way. The questions we reflected on both individually and together, led us into a deeper sense of understanding why we were getting married and how we wanted to celebrate. Her openness and flexibility allowed us to create our own unique ceremony and if we were to get married again we would not change one single thing. Comeback from our family and friends was nothing but of high praise for the whole occasion. We highly recommend Angie to anybody who wishes to have their special day in a very special way.”
Saffron and David
“Thank you so very much for your guidance, support, encouragement and wisdom in creating and holding our wedding ceremony and picnic. We are touched and humbled by the beautiful offering of your work and we are so grateful for you. You rock!

It was wonderful to discover that Angie could genuinely say yes to our particular needs and create exactly the ceremony we wanted. She took great pride in doing just that. Angie was attentive, positive and efficient – and lots of fun too."

Carolyn and Paul
"Thank you so very, very much for making our wedding day the most special and perfect day. We just want to go and do it all over again - relive it, as we couldn't have asked for things to have been any more beautiful than they were."
Ashleigh and Michael
"Sometimes in life you just have to trust..... and that is how my journey will Angie began. I always wanted something a little different for my wedding, I don’t prescribe to a particular religion, my beliefs stem from the four corners of the earth but I knew that I wanted my wedding to be sacred and spiritual. I came across Angie and Will on one of my random ‘wedding’ internet searches whilst looking for that ‘something’ different and looking through their website I just ‘knew’ between us that we’d be able to create that little bit of magic that I was looking for. Friends and family thought I was mad choosing a minister that I had never met never mind finding them randomly on the internet but my response was always - it’ll be perfect just wait and see!

Speaking to Angie only confirmed what I already knew - she was open and honest and made me feel not only incredibly comfortable but also that she cared about my ceremony and making it perfect for me and Michael my husband to be. I pretty much knew the sorts of things that I wanted for my ceremony but we were sent lots of useful information to help us decide upon the direction and words. It was also really nice to get some of the ‘tasks’ we needed to do together to help Angie create our ideal ceremony - we had thought of a lot of it individually but never really had the time to sit and talk it through - life had always previously got in the way!
I loved the fact that although my ideas seemed ‘crazy’ and were a ‘melting pot’ of different religions and belief systems Angie never once made me feel like they were or that none of it would work - in fact she seemed to get as excited as me at the thought of ‘birthing’ the whole thing! She kept me informed through the whole process, talked me through various parts and the parts that I added she helped make individual to us! Everything felt incredibly personal and special like it was made only for us! The first time I got my copy of the ceremony I cried at how amazing it was!

We never met before the day of the ceremony but that did not matter, Angie and Will were the perfect people to celebrate the day with. Even in the little emergencies such as not having a candle or hand tying cloth for parts of it Angie solved with grace and ease-always carrying spares! In the end it truly was the ceremony dreams are made of and felt as if Angie had filled it and our little chapel with magic and the spirit of all we believed in.

EVERYBODY shed a tear during the ceremony, some even ‘wailed’ so loud we had to stop the ceremony for a minute to let them compose themselves and all because it was so personal! Even the staunch catholic who had previously ‘frowned’ at such a ceremony conceded that it was the best ceremony they had ever been involved in. People still speak to me with an air of disbelief at how personal and amazing it all was - I always say, isn’t that how a wedding should be!

I envy each and every one of you now starting your journey with Angie and Will - yes it may seem long and fraught with the stresses of wedding planning, inconsiderate family/friends, expenses and all the other things that distract you from what the wedding is all about - Love - but do what I did and TRUST all will be perfect - with Angie and Will’s help this may well be the case!"
Sarita and Richard
“Thank you for making our day so special - we can’t praise you enough! The beautiful services were so appreciated as was the assistance on our path. We couldn't have done it without you!”
Sue and Alfie
“When we first met Angie we could tell right away that she was the minister we wanted to perform our wedding ceremony. Ours was never going to be a traditional wedding and Angie seemed to grasp from the start what it was we wanted. The thought of writing our own vows and planning what we wanted in the ceremony was quite daunting but Angie was there every step of the way to guide and help us. We wanted our wedding to be different but also reflect us and our feelings and somehow she managed to bring it all together to create the ceremony that we had envisaged. We had a candle lighting ceremony, readings from a family member and a Celtic hand fastening ritual and it was fantastic. There wasn't a dry eye in the room after our vows and months later people are still talking about how special and touching our wedding was. Words cannot express how much we owe Angie for helping to make our wedding day so special. If anyone was wanting a wedding ceremony with a personal touch we would highly recommend her."
Hayley and Kevin
“We just don't think we can fully explain just how amazing it was!

Getting married and organising your day isn't easy, and there can be a lot of worry over the ceremony and how the day will unfold. By choosing Angie as your celebrant, you know without a doubt that the ceremony will be smooth and suit you perfectly.

Angie spent lots of time getting to know us, and it really showed in the ceremony - all our guests were blown away by how beautiful and personal our ceremony was and it's still being talked about now, months later!

A ceremony by Angie is unlike anything you have seen or will see again. Ceremony aside, Angie herself is exceptionally helpful and just having a quick chat with her was enough to lay any pre-wedding jitters to rest - she's a wonderfully calming and uplifting person - Angie, thank you again for giving us a perfect ceremony - it made our day very special!”
Kristy and Moray
“Angie, thank you for marrying us – we had a fantastic day! Thanks for letting us have so much input into our ceremony. You created a wonderful ceremony for us which really captured who we are. Loved every minute of it.

You are such a lovely person and I’m so glad we chose you to be our minister. Couldn’t have asked for more on one of the most important days of our lives. We are loving being married and are looking forward to many happy years together.”
Julie and Robin
“Thank you so much for Sunday - the ceremony was amazing - we enjoyed every minute of it. So many people have commented on how heartfelt, upbeat and sincere your delivery was - you are all of those things. It has been just great having your support and guidance in the past four weeks - we couldn't have done it without you.”
Emma and Liam
"We did it!! Thank you so so much to both of you - Angie for creating and Will for holding a beautiful ceremony!!! We got so many compliments!!!

Of course we were extremely happy with whole process and felt that it suited our needs perfectly. Communication with yourself throughout was fantastic without ever a delay in responding to queries or concerns. Given that we live in Dundee such a great distance away from yourselves the use of Skype for our initial meeting worked very well and both yourself and Will gave us the reassurance that this was the type of ceremony that we were looking for. Initial concern would probably have been due to the fact that we were to deal with you for everything in creating the ceremony but it would be Will performing on the day, however this was proven wrong.

We found the extensive information and guidance provided really helped us to create the ceremony we wished for whilst also having the freedom to tailor it to our own preferences and especially to suit our personalities. We were also given the time and space to go through this information and come back with our likes and dislikes.

On finally meeting in person it was great that both yourself and Will were present. We found that to be a great experience, being able to thrash out our ideas/concerns/thoughts on the proposed ceremony layout etc. It also helped to run through rituals which also allowed to figure out things we liked/disliked. It also allowed us to reassure ourselves that the hand fastening ritual was for us.

With regards to the first draft, as you will remember, it only took a small few tweaks to get us to the final draft and what was used on the day. Myself and Emma were so happy to read through the first draft and were extremely impressed with how spot on you had gotten the whole thing. I think our meeting and the questionnaire we filled out for you really helped with this and also allowed us to tailor the ceremony to our liking as much as possible with you guiding us along the way.

And finally, with regards to Will and how he held the ceremony on the day. We cannot fault it. From when Will met me before the ceremony he was calm and relaxed and spent time talking to myself and the groomsmen (when I was probably slightly panicking) to go through everything and the order of the ceremony. He even had a glass of water nearby for myself before the ceremony began, the small touches like that were really appreciated. The ceremony itself went brilliantly, Will got the laughs we would have wanted to ensure it was a comfortable fun ceremony for everyone present. He also done very well when Emma got a little bit emotional and took his time to allow her to compose herself and move on the with ceremony.

All in all we found that having the combination of yourself and Will in creating and carrying out our ceremony to be an excellent experience and a decision that we are delighted to have taken. We don't think we could have had a more personal, stress-free and enjoyable experience with any other celebrants and really thank you for yourself and Wills efforts throughout the whole process. We would happily recommend yourselves to any couple looking for a highly personal and enjoyable experience."

"Angie and Will are absolutely beautiful people! From start to finish planning our wedding from the US, Angie was so helpful with Skype calls and walked us through it and beyond. Our ceremony was perfect in every way, Will delivered it flawlessly even while dealing with a 3 yr old showing him a worm! Everyone said it was a beautiful ceremony and a highlight of the day so full of love! Thank you again Angie and Will, you made our day even more stunning with your wonderful energy being involved! Infinite thanks!”

"I've known Will and Angie for almost 17 years so it's safe to say I knew what I was getting when I booked our wedding ceremony with them.

I knew when the day came that I got married I would ask Will to be the celebrant, because having witnessed Will and Angie both working, I knew we would have a professional service from two people that really know what they're doing and were committed to our day being as special as it would be had they been planning their own wedding.

As my partner and I were between London and LA a lot of our planning was difficult to fit it, not only to international times but into our busy lives. Angie was great at setting up skype calls, we even spent our vacation in Palm Springs chatting with Will and Angie on skype whilst enjoying a few cocktails!

My wife and I had no idea where to start and Angie helped set up the type of ceremony we were going to have as well as offering ideas about what things we could include in it. She sent a draft ceremony to us to review well in advance. We had a few ideas about what we wanted but to be honest, most of the creative content came from ideas we got from Angie but she is great at picking up on what you are looking for.

As we wanted to have a traditional theme Will even got kitted out in his kilt at our request which really synced with us especially in the photos!

In the months leading up to the wedding Will and Angie made sure to keep us up to date with what we had to do, the schedule for the wedding. I never felt harassed by the communication and I felt really well informed about what we were doing.

As I already knew Will and Angie meeting them wasn't a first for me but it was for my wife. Angie spotted us and stopped to have a chat with us as we drove through the village the day before the wedding and my wife felt really embraced by this welcome. Will being the warm hunk of joy that he is really helped my wife to feel at ease on the day - it helps to carry a flask of whisky in your sporran!

The ceremony itself went just as planned, Will held the space well on the wedding day we really couldn't have asked for anything better. I couldn't recommend more highly for anyone to have these two help celebrate your wedding. I can promise satisfaction and a few laughs along the way. It's a day I will remember for a long time to come and I am so grateful to have shared it with them both."

"Angie's initial response was quick and gave us all in the information we needed to move onto the next stage. We knew we didn't want it to be too long a ceremony that got boring for the guests and Angie provided ways to include them and to keep it flowing.
We found the questions hard to begin with but that was down to us not knowing what we wanted. However after going through them a few times we found they really helped us to realise what we didn't want and what we might like. From the moment we met we knew we had made the right choice and felt totally at ease.

When we read through the first draft of the ceremony it felt very real and exciting! Then Will held the ceremony exactly how we thought it would be - great fun and filled with emotion.

All of our friends and family have said it was amazingly put together, relaxed and that they felt very involved. This is exactly what we wanted.

From the moment we started to the very end you both supported us and we couldn't have had such a great day without you both. We wouldn't change anything about the process or the actual ceremony as it was tailored to us perfectly. So thank you for everything!"
Constanze and Dave
"We just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for a perfect wedding on Friday! The ceremony went wonderfully and received lots of praise from our guests. My sister said afterwards that the ceremony was very "us", which sums it up perfectly!
 
On top of that, we wanted to thank you for all the ideas you helped us flesh out when we were designing/drafting the ceremony, your excellent organisation of everything in the run-up to the day, and for then delivering a perfect ceremony for us. We can honestly say in hindsight that there is nothing about it that we would change if we were doing it again.
 
We felt taken care of by Will as well when organising all the various photo shots. Also just to confirm, the rest of the day also went without any hitches and we had an absolutely wonderful time overall!"
Sarah and Tomas
"I am truly grateful for having been recommended Angie as our celebrant. From the very start of communication, she was warm, friendly and completely thorough in understanding us as a couple and our ideas for the ceremony.
Overtime we spoke, the planning came together seamlessly and with ease; it made the planning a pleasure rather than frayed nerves and anxiety.

I loved the questions Angie asked as when organising a ceremony you can get side-tracked with practicalities and logistics and forget the joy and real reason you are getting married in the first place!
Angie understood perfectly the vision that we had to have a simple outdoors ceremony, respecting ancient traditions and the sacred and forgoing modern religion.
Together we agreed on the format and element to the ceremony, all of which Angie orchestrated perfectly on the day.
Travelling to the Isle of Lewis for the end of October, Angie braved the heavy rains and celebrated our hand fasting/wedding under the wide skies and open lands making our dreams come true.
We barely noticed the rain and it was truly the best day of our lives.
We took care of the paperwork in the dry and everything was blissfully serene and with the perfect balance of solemnity of our undertaking.
Angie has beautiful warm energy and I can not recommend her more highly. With gratitude always X"
Chiara and Dave
"Angie is just so great, we started planning this wedding without any idea of what we wanted to do, Angie helped us to understand what was important for us and supported us when we felt helplessly stressed! Just a great experience, could have not expressed our feelings and emotions in any better way than we managed to do with our really personal ceremony! Thank you again Angie for making out special day unforgettable."
Helen and Graeme
"Angie performed our ceremony back in 2010 and she was awesome! So much prep via phone and email that people thought she'd been a lifelong friend. You certainly won't regret or forget your Minister if you choose Angie."
Josie and Jack
"We were married in October in Forres.
At short notice Angie made everything happen and run smoothly.
She got to know us in a brief period and customised everything she could which felt very personal to us.
Both of our family’s loved how well the ceremony suited our lives and she nailed the relaxed feel we were going for.
We would highly recommend Angie to anyone looking to get married in Scotland and have that personal caring touch.
Thanks again Angie."
Zoe and Adam
"If you want the best for your photos and ceremony look no further. Angie and Will gave us exactly what we hoped for and wanted - their friendly and helpful input assured that we had the most perfect day and memories to look back on. Will was fun and relaxed directing and taking our photos. Angie held the ceremony beautifully with a delightful mix of humour and depth."
Susannah and Karina
"We’re left with this amazing glow of happiness and contentment - because last week was *everything* we hoped for and more. We both know how good it all was, and we feel a kind of elation really. We just totally loved everything.

You have a gift in what you do, Angie. You were so conscientious in the preparation, and treated our special day with huge respect and care. And in the execution of the ceremony, you had an amazing calm and presence. And that was a precious gift. You could see how moved Susannah was by the ceremony. She hadn't expected that, she just didn't anticipate it. But the wedding was sacred. It is a moment in time that will always exist. It is a treasure for the rest of our lives, as we move forward to treasure one another. Just to say, we treasure you too, and Will.

The class and kindness you brought to our day was irreplaceable. It will stay with us forever. Angie, we hope you and Will have many many happy days together and once again: thank you. For the service, but even more than that, for yourselves - and your givenness towards us and goodwill."
Geoff from Watch The Birdie Video
"Angie, I had the pleasure of filming a ceremony you did and I just wanted to drop a note to you to say how much I enjoyed your ceremony - loved your delivery - you have a very calming delivery which I found perfect for the occasion. I shall add you to my very small list of recommended band of people who I would recommend to wedding couples. Well done on making the couple's day extra special."
Jill and Joe
"We wanted to say a big heartfelt thank you for the absolutely beautiful ceremony you created for us. It was stunning and think you captured us and the type of ceremony/ day we wanted just perfectly.

All our families and friends have been telling us how beautiful they thought the ceremony was and one they won’t forget and we don’t think there were many dry eyes out there!

You put in so much work and it was so greatly appreciated. A truly special moment we will never forget!"
Anne and Graham
"We would like to send a heartfelt thank you for all your professional help on our special day. Our ceremony was perfect and reflected our true beliefs with just the right balance of religion and light hearted stories. Our guests loved your work as much as we did, especially the gifting of tartan and sword, as no-one had seen this before and it fitted our situation perfectly. Once again thank you so much."
Maddie and Tommy
Angie and Will are absolutely incredible! We found them online and knew they were the right people to wed us right away. From the start they were very communicative and helpful guiding us up until the day of the wedding. Being from out of country we had no idea what to expect but they did an outstanding job helping us create our perfect day. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about them!!
Karen and Gary
Angie married us on my parents farm this July and did a lovely job. We asked Angie to do the ceremony as she was able to legally marry us without being tied to a religious or humanist service. It was a personal ceremony with a reading from the bible. Angie was very well organised and kept us right, which really helped in the chaos running up to the wedding! We were delighted with how the service turned out and would highly recommend Angie.
