Hi, I'm Angie
There is nothing I would love more than to create and hold the perfect ceremony for you. I have sixteen years’ worth of experience and have built up good local knowledge as well as a repertoire of ritual and other creative inspiration. I’m as delighted to hold a humanist ceremony for you outdoors as a traditional candle lit ceremony for you in church, and anything inbetween. You can choose all the aspects that make up your ceremony and with my guidance your ceremony will be everything you want.
What's my ceremony style?
I aspire to be warm and welcoming throughout all our interactions as well as with my delivery of your ceremony on the day. I also aspire to be the presence of joy for you during your ceremony, and put myself in your shoes so I imagine being on the receiving end of the experience I offer you. This means I listen well as we prepare, I’m very organised and able to hold the bigger picture so we think of everything needed in advance, and then on the day I am articulate and as up for fun as I am up for a very profound and emotional experience.
My husband and I often work together offering ceremony/photos for weddings for two and elopements

What do I offer?
I am an ordained interfaith minister so I can reflect all faiths and no faith, according to your beliefs if they are important to you. As a minister and celebrant I am fully authorised to solemnise marriage in Scotland, which means that I can combine the spiritual and religious, together with the practical, in a way to suit you and your needs. I’m as comfortable leading a ceremony with 250 guests, as I am holding a ceremony for two. As a couple you and your intended are unique, and the experience and ceremony I can offer you will be unique to you.
Getting married in Scotland and eloping to Scotland are easy and I can guide and help you so that preparing is fun and stress free. Whatever your faith or belief you can choose to have a ceremony of marriage, handfasting, commitment or betrothal – or any other kind of relationship ceremony. Indoor or outdoor, short and simple, or creative and elaborate; traditional or alternative, your ceremony reflects you and your love and your beliefs if they are important to you, and we prepare to suit you – face to face, on the phone, using FaceTime, WhatsApp, Skype or Zoom, or using email.
I can work solo or together with my photographer husband
Why choose Angie for your wedding?
I am friendly, flexible and responsible, so you can rest assured I am prioritising our communications as we prepare, as well as doing my utmost to create and write the perfect ceremony for you, then my goal is to show up on time and be well prepared on the day. My goal is for our journey together to be as fun, calm and stress free as I can make it for you. And for your ceremony to be exactly as you wish on the day.

Your renewal might be quite tender and healing, or it could be full of fun and celebration – I will create and hold a ceremony that is fitting for you and the journey of your marriage. Scotland is probably one of the most popular places in the world to hold your vow renewal as we have so many beautiful and natural outdoor spaces, as well as amazing castles and churches. I’d be delighted to share ideas.

A perfectly arranged intimate beach/forest wedding
From our initial email enquiry with just a vague idea of what we wanted using google photos and maps through to the actual wedding day, Angie communicated by phone and email to keep us in the loop and gave gentle reminders of the next steps to take. Our entire wedding was arranged using the internet/phone calls because for 3 months of it we were in lockdown!
Email guides with information about timescales and legal applications that were sent to us by Angie were invaluable and really helped to plan the day, with Angie really taking on board our wishes, even scoping out the perfect location for the ceremony based on our phone calls which is no mean feat when we were 500 miles apart.
Everything ran smoothly and Will (the photographer) made us relax and laugh a lot which really shows through in the fabulous photos.
Angie went above and beyond to make sure things were just right, if you need attention to detail then you will enjoy working with Angie.
We would highly recommend Angie and Will for your wedding ceremony, as they make sure that your special day will be perfect, just as our day was.
A kind and communicative partner that helps to make your day incredibly special
Planning an intimate, outdoor wedding ceremony in another country is quite a task – add in the anxieties and question marks surrounding the pandemic this year and it feels fairly close to impossible. Working with local partners that are communicative, empathetic and offer their advice is the only way my wife and I were able to do so this year. Reaching out to Angie to officiate our wedding was one of the best choices we made for our ceremony in Scotland. She made the process incredibly easy – offering plenty of instruction and options when it came to putting the ceremony together. Angie was an incredibly kind and understanding partner as the pandemic constantly put our travel plans into question and offered us options and advice as we worked through it. Between e-mail correspondence, a FaceTime call and texts leading up to the ceremony, we already felt incredibly comfortable with Angie as the day of our ceremony arrived. We couldn’t have been happier with the ceremony that Angie had put together for us and the wonderful spirit she brought to such a special and intimate day. As a gay couple, there was honestly nothing quite as important as knowing our officiant supported and celebrated us for who we were and that we felt nothing but completely comfortable and accepted on our wedding day. We feel so thankful to have found Angie, who certainly ticked all of those boxes for us.
An amazing celebrant – 5 stars is not enough!
Having just got married 1 week ago, it is only now really sinking in how central a part Angie played in making our ceremony and day exactly what we were looking for…and more!
From first contact, Angie’s communications with us were fantastic – she was very responsive, and every email or call demonstrated that Angie had really listened and understood what we were saying…even if sometimes we were a wee bit vague. Angie translated all of our ideas into a wonderful ceremony, and made many suggestions that enhanced our day – some of which we would never have thought of without her!
The whole experience of working with Angie and her photographer husband Will, have exceeded our expectations (which were high to start with). Will was the perfect balance of fun, dynamic and professional and he captured the essence of our day – with a gallery of photographs that are amazing. On the day, Angie set up our venue as we had agreed – but somehow this still managed to take our breath away. During the ceremony, Angie was a consummate professional and created a sense of calm tranquillity that enabled us to really enjoy the intimacy of our wedding day.
In short, we cannot recommend Angie highly enough for someone who is looking for an interfaith celebrant that will truly understand and help you to turn your hopes into a wedding day reality.
