♥ Wedding Ceremonies Tailored To Your Needs

There are two types of legal marriages in Scotland

The service is an important part of the day so we are here to make sure its right and memorable to you. Personalizing the service will make it unique to you and special to all concerned. Any requirements you may have we are here to help you with. Hymns, songs, maybe a close fiend or family member has a musical talent and you can have them preform. You can also have readings and poems read by friends.

You may wish to incorporate other elements to your wedding, a romantic gesture is to light two candles, sometimes referred to as unity candles, then ask family members to light candles bringing the two families together. This to can be adapted to suit your wishes. Whatever you choose to have as part of your ceremony, it will be very special to you.

♥ Handfasting Traditional Celtic Wedding Ceremony

If you do not fancy a traditional Scottish wedding the increasingly popular Hand Fasting Ceremony may be what you are looking for.
Harking back to a more distant past this ceremony has its roots in ancient Celtic tradition.
The term ‘tying the knot’ comes from this ceremony.
The ceremony can be tailored individually, usually including a blessing of the elements and or directions, drinking from the Scottish Quaich and a charging of the rings.

This can be a simple short ceremony or a full ritual.
