New York | October 2019
I am without words, remembering how I, and Steve, felt listening to your recorded message! I had no idea you had done that!
I was crying the whole time, and found out later most of our guests were sobbing as well (in a really good way!).
Our ceremony was absolutely perfect, due in very large part to what you wrote, and said. We used the same vows we used in the handfasting, and our friend Sarah (whom you met) had retyped them for us. Her typos (because we hadn't proofread!) provided some really great comedy too, lol!
Thank you again, though that really isn't enough. And please please, if anyone ever wants a reference, you should absolutely give them our emails, and/or my phone number if they would like to call. We would love to tell everybody how amazing our handfasting was, AND our legal ceremony, because of everything you've done for us. We love you, and we do hope to see you again, some time soon!

On behalf of my new husband and I, we would like to THANK YOU SO MUCH for conducting our ceremony. Literally everyone said to us how amazing it was and how personal, light hearted but serious at all the right times. It was out of this world, honestly.
Take care and I hope to see you again somewhere, sometime!
Falon & Ross
Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your fabulous day.
From Bernie the surprise ring bearer to having to get your hair dresser in half way through!.... I loved every minute!
Hailes Castle | August 2019
I have absolutely no words to thank you for what you created for us. We didn't communicate all that much beforehand, but you still managed to put together EXACTLY what we had in our minds. It was a magical combination of romance, and energy, and even more that I cannot describe. I felt not only joined more deeply with Steve, but with all of the Elements, and the Universe. I felt enveloped and supported by everyone and everything. I have a feeling that this ceremony will mean far more to us in future years than our legal ceremony in October.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Loch Lomond | May 2019
Lindy conducted our renewal of vows ceremony on the banks of Loch Lomond and it was one of the most special days of our lives. Not only was the ceremony beautiful, poignant and fun but her communication throughout the process was exemplary. She was able to offer us lots of suggestions for where we could have our ceremony and what we could have in it. All of our guests said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. It was a perfect ceremony and a perfect day thanks to Lindy.
Thank you for your kind words Jim and Evonne, and for being so open and gracious in allowing me free reign with your ceremony! I loved every moment and wish you both a lifetime of happiness.
Dunskey Estate | June 2019
Lindy was a highlight of our wedding day. Not only did she work with us from day one to craft a meaningful and charming ceremony, but she also explained the rich traditions that came to play a part in our wedding. Lindy even met with me in Florida when travelling with her husband to introduce herself before the big day. Her down to earth manner and sincerity shone through in every decision and my family and friends couldn't be more impressed. I highly, highly recommend Lindy as the celebrant for your special day.
Thank you Danny & Kellie. I loved conducting your ceremony, and (Danny) I will always remember you being escorted across the lawn by your Grandmother, and also your wonderful Scottish accent when reading the words for the Quaich!
Dunblane Hydro Hotel | May 2019
Lindy, where do we even start with this review... We cannot thank you enough for the ceremony that you delivered for us right down to the finest detail.
We asked Lindy right back in day 1 for us to have a relaxed, funny and personal ceremony and aye she certainly delivered. Our story was brilliantly put together telling the story of our lives and relationship together and sharing some of our most treasured memories.
Due to a contraflow on route to our venue our guests ended up being 1 hour late but our guests that were at the venue were never left uninformed and were put at real ease.
There was laughter, tears, and love all throughout the ceremony, which many of our guests commented on so much so that one actually wants Lindy to carry out his funeral service
Aw thank you so much Mrs Natalie Swinney!... I loved being a part of your ceremony. From the tears when you first saw each other to your unbridled joy when you said "Aye Do!" I just loved it and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.
The Old Churches Hotel, Dunblane | January 2019
I just wanted to thank Lindy for every little aspect of our ceremony. Lindy is such a lovely down to earth person who listens to what you want and puts her heart and soul into her work . We knew from the start Lindy was perfect for what we wanted. We asked for funny and light-hearted and she delivered it. Lindy had people crying and laughing and everyone commented on the lovely service.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts

Lindy is amazing. She has a very calming presence and she is incredibly organised and her tools to help you plan the ceremony are so helpful. Our ceremony was perfect because of her. I am so grateful with how easy and stress free she made it and she has a beautiful touch in making it very special and with a gorgeous balance of humour. I recommend her to any couple and also to anyone who is organising it from overseas as I did. I found the process so easy to organise through email and it was only until our wedding day that we met her face to face which was absolutely fine because everything was organised and ready. Thank you so so much for being part of our day. Xo
Thank you so much for your lovely, kind words Melissa. I had such a great time conducting your beautiful ceremony.
... and I hope you stocked up on Irn Bru for your mum!!
waterside Hotel, West Kilbride, Scotland | September 2018
From the moment we contacted Lindy we knew we had picked the perfect person to conduct our Vow Renewal ceremony. Lindy's natural gift of listening to what we were looking for, gaining insight into our history together and by injecting a bit of fun, gave us a unique ceremony that was just perfect in every way.
We cannot thank Lindy enough for making our day special and would highly recommend her. to everyone.
Thank you so much Jackie... I loved conducting your ceremony!
Gailes Hotel, Irvine | August 2018
We can't thank you enough for our wonderful ceremony it really was amazing. We had a feeling it was going to be good when we first got in touch, and had no doubts having you as our celebrant was going to be something special, but there are no words that can describe just how great our ceremony actually was to experience. It was better than we ever imagined it could be. You made us feel so relaxed , and we loved every word , every second, every moment of our ceremony. The way you made it so special and personal for Jennifer and I and together with our kids as a family was just perfect from start to finish . Our sand ceremony was something so special for us as a family and your words were lovely . We have been just taking time to take it all in over the weekend and both Jen and I loved everything about our whole wedding day, we have been talking about our best bits and we both have said our ceremony was what we loved the most of our wedding day , Once again we thank you for making our wedding day so much more than we could ever have wished for. We are so pleased your recorded the ceremony. Love the video and look forward to seeing the rest of it.
Have a great time in NZ with your family and we look forward to seeing you when you get back.
Love Kevin & Jen xx

Woodside Hotel, Aberdour | July 2018
I think it's needless to say we are still recovering after our exiting weekend. We had an amazing time with our friends and really enjoyed every minute of it. We are very grateful for the wonderful ceremony you put together for us. It turned out even better than we imagined.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day! And for the beautiful gift xx
Loch Etive | August 2017
We contacted Lindy for our vow renewal ceremony to be held in Scotland. We live in Seattle, Washington, USA, so we had no idea how to proceed in this foreign land, but Lindy was FANTASTIC in guiding us through the entire process. She genuinely cared about us as people and took the time to get to know us and what we wanted from the ceremony. She spent hours of her time scouting out the perfect location for us and scripting a beautiful ceremony. She communicated with us to provide regular updates and we always felt comfortable knowing we were in good hands, and that the ceremony would be wonderful. On the day of the ceremony, she met us at our hotel and guided us to the location in Glencoe, which was spectacular! The ceremony itself was wonderful and we could not be happier. If you want a great celebrant who really cares about you as people and takes the time to make your event special, you should absolutely go with Lindy and Aye Do! Ceremonies! We will be sure to see her again for our next vow renewal!
Thank you Sandi & Shawn.... it was such a beautiful day apart from the midgies!! xx

Glenbervie House hotel | March 2018
So much more than just a ceremony: Where to start! From the moment we met Lindy we realised that this was who we wanted to be with us on our wedding day. From that first meeting we knew that Lindy brought a very professional but personal feel to the whole process of creating a perfect wedding ceremony. Lindy took the time find out who we were and what made us special as a couple, from how we met through what brought us to our wedding day Lindy put together our story like no one else could. She gave us guidance to help write our own vows which can seem a daunting task when you first think about it and was always available for a chat. The ceremony was perfect, it was everything we would have hoped for and so much more besides. We both have children and Lindy included them into the ceremony seamlessly and let them know that they were an important part of the day. Lindy told our story wonderfully to friends and family and included some beautiful and very thoughtful personal touches. Many of our friends have commented on how much it seemed like Lindy really knew us. We felt so comfortable and at ease on the day - we laughed and had fun, whilst still keeping things serious for the more formal parts of the ceremony. We’ve had so many comments from people that it was the best ceremony they've ever been to! I really can’t recommend Lindy and Aye Do Ceremonies enough, it was simply wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Thank you Ruth & Mervyn... I loved every minute of your day xx
Edinburgh Zoo | July 2017
We met Lindy at a Wedding Fair and were looking for an independent (read: not Catholic/not Humanist) celebrant. So we stopped at her booth and chatted with her for less than 2 minutes. In that time, she was able to move me to near tears in a very public space. After we left the fair, I couldn't stop thinking about the lovely things she had said about couples she'd worked with and the services she'd done. From our first client meeting, it was obvious that she would be able to craft a beautiful, touching and personal service for our wedding. She was also a ton of fun and really easy to talk to. She made an effort to get to know us and even let us add and remove elements to personalize our ceremony. The ceremony itself was PERFECT! The wedding ceremony was this amazing balance of sentimental, personal, joyful, and fun. From the altar, I could hear people laugh and cry - literally. She hit every point and emotion we wanted and then went above and beyond. It was important to us that our ceremony wasn't religious (because of conflicting religious backgrounds) but that the ceremony held the weight of a religious ceremony. We also wanted it to be fun without being frivolous. It was actually a really enjoyable experience for us and our guests. So many people told us in our guest book that the ceremony was their favorite part of the day. Due to her fun spirit, gift with words, beautiful and comical delivery, all-around great personality and professionalism, I would confidently and enthusiastically recommend Lindy Irving. She is an amazing celebrant!
Thank you Kelly & Amanda.... I had such an amazing time with you both... and I got to see penguins! xx

Most couples say they chose me because of my fun & relaxed style, (and some just because they love the name Aye Do!).
