Hi, I'm Margery
Hi -I am a Celebrant and Deaconess who has been conducting Weddings and Funerals over five years now and have loved every minute! My background has led perfectly to where I am now. For 30 years I was a pub landlady who played the diplomat, counsellor and event’s organiser learning so much about people & all the many characters over the years! I taught as a trainer with an end of life care company for a few years, I have trained and worked in volunteering with several charities bringing a wealth of experience & rewards, I am also a Holistic and Spiritual Workshop Facilitator and Teacher and again this has brought so many rewards in the last 12 years. Training in Funeral Celebrancy, I then carried on to Celebrancy for Weddings and Family training. In an around this I became an Ordained Deaconess & I am now able to conduct full ceremonies.
What's my ceremony style?
I have worked hard in my role building on my experience and craft. Each service is unique to each couple and family. No two scripts are the same. No two people are, or couples.
Previous experience has lead to where I am now and has all been invaluable with folk I have met on this journey of life.
Experience has helped with a family in grief, a couple who are looking for ideas and guidance for their perfect day, an awkward moment where meetings have become tense and very often a sense of humour and sincerity has helped ease meetings and bring smiles where there were frowns.
I do not see this as a role but as a vocation, a choice and a way to help couples and families create ceremonies which they can look back on knowing it was right for them.
Feedback time and again has encouraged me in going that extra mile.
£475.00 - £525.00 - there may be slightly higher fees for distance of 70 miles and over.
Celebration and Promotion
There have been so many perfect moments, perfect days, perfect ceremonies, perfect couples, families and people.
I have loved the beach weddings, the woodland weddings, the elopements, the garden weddings, those venue’s which were quirky, rustic and intimate……..
Funerals have held many a special moment – one being a family who all surprised me by getting up to sing Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye at the end to their mother and grandmother service! Yes, I cried!
A woodland internment after a beautiful memorial ceremony will always sit with me as being so special.
Why choose Margery?
I am a bubbly, happy, positive person with a mass of common sense [I am told]. I have a good imagination and pretty good intuition. I am also known to have a sense of humour!
I embrace each ceremony, each in its uniqueness to create what is right for each couple and family.
My service is individual, sincere and I have been told I leave people feeling their day was unique to them. Just as I wanted!
I am a people person, who loves to hear folks stories, creating ceremonies, bringing a story together creating the perfect day for them.
Life is so worth celebrating in all its many ways!
What do I offer?
All couples are ideal, couples you get to know, build a friendship with and then help them create their wedding day. Each and every ceremony right for them.
Its important couple’s feel I am ideal for them. A Zoom/media chat often gives us the time to meet and get to know each other to decide.
I have loved the small intimate ceremonies or large family and friend occasions. The woodland settings, the castles, the Loch side, the wedding venue’s.
There is nothing more rewarding than to leave a ceremony knowing the couple were happy.
This role takes commitment, understanding, humour and a connection to conduct a ceremony individual to a couple. This is my ultimate aim. We are all unique. Marriage and being married is precious time. It is sacred. It is special.My ideal couple are those who want it to be just that.
I offer bespoke wedding services, outdoor ceremonies, relaxed ceremonies, ceremonies with humour, many with rich Sacred Scottish addition, destination weddings and elopements.
Ceremonies that leave couples with lasting memories.
I have held ceremonies in a multitude of places and venue,blessed to have been part of so many special moments.
As an Ordained Deaconess I conduct non- religious or religious ceremonies in a fully legalised ceremony and offer Pagan & Spiritual ceremonies which I love.
Ceremonies have been on a beach, in a woodland setting, a boat, a couples back garden, a caravan park and a beautiful Scottish Castle to name a few.
Some couples work with me via Zoom if they are a distance away, many meet in person and some wish to have a run through with their wedding party before their big day. After our initial meeting, we then chat about fees including travel.
£450- onwards depending package and travel discussed at initial meeting.
Why choose Margery for your wedding?
I support and encourage each couple to bring their ceremony together in a way that is right for them.
I help you look at ideas and additions to create an individual day . I never share scripts on request as these are individual to each couple from start to finish.
Having each couple trust me to bring their day together means everything.
My ceremony Toolkit includes Quaich’s, Oath Stones to Handfasting Ties.
I am a fully trained Family and Wedding Celebrant and studied and was ordained as a Deaconess. I offer the full legal ceremony for couples be they religious, non-religious, Pagan, Celtic or something in between. All faiths or no faiths are right for each couple.
I feel continued development is important in my role. I love creating ceremonies, researching for them and creating scripts.
I love nothing more than to see people relaxed, happy and loving their day. The day you are married!
Unfortunately Eternal Soul Light is not available for Naming Ceremonies.
Renewal of Vows
I have helped couples celebrate 50 years together, others who wanted to elope and have a quiet day for them, ones who wanted a Christmas celebration of renewal and some who have had a big family party after. There have been woodland ceremonies, beach side and elegant country venue’s.
I have helped couples create all these ceremonies and more and have loved being part of every one. Each couple’s new chapter.
Vow Renewals are becoming more popular as couple’s for various reasons decide they want to re take their vows to each other to re celebrate their love – some elope to do this by themselves while others have the big celebration with family and friends in attendance.
Celebrating their love, their way.
Like weddings, couples may decide if they want an elopement ceremony, as example, and they may be happy to have Zoom chats if there is a distance to travel or some are happy to have in person meetings at a suitable place for us all. Packages come according to their wishes, distance, and what they require.
I offer couples a day according to their reasons and ways they want to have their vow renewal.
This can be outside, in a woodland or, in a castle or even their back garden[ I have done all of these and more]. I love to offer ideas to help create a perfect Vow Renewal day right for you both.
From £450.00 depending on travel and area.
Why choose Margery for your renewal of vows?
I have a wealth of experience to bring to my role; I love sharing ideas and the commitment to ensure couples have a memorable day. I am a person centred, good humoured, positive, upbeat person and have been told I tend to take other folk along with me as I go! I have carried out many ceremonies over the last five plus years and have loved them all. I only hold one ceremony a day and put my time and effort into that day, writing each script uniquely and individually. I am happy to travel and love to. Re taking our vows can be for many reasons. Maybe a wife felt she lost out on her wedding day. Maybe a couple just want to re affirm their love for each other be it ten years to twenty. It can be a Silver Wedding Anniversary or a year married ceremony. Their are so many choices where to have these ceremonies.
As a trained Funeral Celebrant of over six years, I offers services according to the family and persons wishes and their beliefs, and feelings. I love working with folk from all walks of life- we each have a story unique to us. I trained as a Death Midwife and have been there with folk at end of life.. Capturing the essence of the person who has died means everything. It is a time to honour and remember them & to celebrate who they were. My aim always is to remain humble, sincere and guide families the best way I can, offering thoughtfulness and understanding of their loss. Grief leaves a huge imprint on our lives and coping with a funeral can be far from easy for folk as many know. I am there to support families all through this and be with them at this most important time.
I offer care, attention and compassion. I offer support, empathy and understanding. In the rich tapestry of my life I have gained so much experience I feel I can bring to each service for each person. Caring for each family and those organising a service is my ultimate role. I have held services in village halls, crematoriums, woodland burials, memorials, services in people’s homes, graveside services large and small, interments of ashes and in a Funeral Directors Chapel. One service had the room filled with the persons memorabilia – all their choices and requests. I love woodland services and always remember we had folk standing up to clap to Zorba the Greek as the person arrived in accordance with families wishes! The latter spoke perfectly of the gent’s character! There are so many choices can be made and I am there to help folk make them where I can.
Why choose Margery for your funeral?
Speaking with families is a privilege & creating a eulogy that holds the essence of someone, bringing together their character and who they were on the day is an honour.
I have had many thank you cards, messages, gifts, letters and emails after services from family and those organising services which I have kept and are a reminder to give my role my all to every person who’s funeral I conduct.
Every script I write is unique to them and speaks of them, who they were and their loves in life. That is my role and always my aim. A service given with sincerity, compassion, caring and understanding to the best of my ability.

Where should we start?
We found Margery online and loved her connection with spirituality, Scottish rituals and Nature. From our first email correspondence to the ceremony, everything went smooth and appreciable. Margery has always been very flexible and asked for the right questions. She guided us all through the way and wrote a moving speech for our wedding. She was full of attentions to us on our wedding day. Our friends loved the way the wedding was held. So did we of course.
We could not recommend her enough! Thank you again, Margery, for helping making this day exactly as we wanted it.

Margery is a star!!!
Margery was the celebrant for our wedding at the beautiful Aikwood Tower, and honestly, we could not have picked anyone better!
She met with us many times (virtually and in person) in the run up to the wedding to get a feel for our personalities and our relationship together.
When it came to the day, we had friends and family alike asking how long we had known Margery, mainly due to the fact we were so comfortable with her, and how she described our relationship and traits so well. Margery got both our children involved in the ceremony, during the hand fasting, which was such a special touch for us!
After the ceremony was finished, we were both gutted to see her leave!
We can’t thank Margery enough and would recommend her to anyone!

A perfect celebrant
Margery was absolutely the perfect celebrant for our wedding. She put so much time and effort in to getting to know us before the wedding, and worked extremely hard to tailor the wedding service to both our characters and our specific wants. On the day, she was a delight. The service was exactly as we would have liked – light-hearted, fun, inclusive, but also deeply tethered in tradition, much of which Margery helped guide us through and tailored to us. All in all, she wed us in exactly the way we would have wished, but also by adding her own character into the day. We’re so glad to have met her!
