Hi, I'm Onie

Hello, I’m Onie…I offer beautiful, relaxed, inclusive ceremonies for any event significant to you and your family. I believe in creating ceremonies that are centred around the wishes and values of the family involved. This enables you to create a personal, unique ceremony with you, your personalities, your stories at the heart. A ceremony that reflects your own beliefs, whether that incorporates religious and spiritual beliefs or entirely non-religious/secular ethos. An Agnostic Scotland ceremony is inclusive and open-minded. Ceremonies can be funny-sweet, deeply meaningful, make-you-weep-while-you-laugh hilarious, heart-achingly poignant, timeless and grand, sincere and serious, gentle and thoughtful. They can be traditional, unconventional, grand, or intimate. Every element of your ceremony is your choice. I am based in the Scottish Highlands and cover these areas: Wester Ross, Inverness-shire, the Cairngorms, Aviemore area, Assynt and Coigach. I can conduct legal Wedding Ceremonies. All locations are covered from grand hotels to mountain tops. All love is celebrated!

What's my ceremony style?

I’m pretty relaxed in most settings and love meeting new people. Clients describe me as calm, thoughtful, warm, grounded, joyful, sincere, friendly, insightful and light-hearted.

In addition to being a celebrant, I am co-director of a therapies clinic in Edinburgh. For 20 years, I worked with families, supporting individuals through major life transitions. Over the years, friends and clients invited me to be celebrant at their life events – it is through these requests that I chose to become a life celebrant. I’ve been a celebrant since 2012, and absolutely love it. I combine my celebrancy practice with working for Social Enterprise Scotland, being Co-Director of Agnostic Scotland and KnotStressed Therapies and being part of a Scottish writing society.

Wherever and whatever you choose, it is my great delight to help you lovingly craft a ceremony that is everything you wished it to be.

Naming Ceremonies

Naming and Family Ceremonies are pure joy… reflecting the character of the small but mighty people involved. Planning a ceremony to honour the arrival of your baby, or to celebrate the completion of your family, is such a personal and individual process.

Together, I can work with you to create a beautiful ceremony that reflects your own unique blend of beliefs, values and wishes. One that adopts the tone you are seeking, and includes the symbolic elements or rituals that make sense to you and your family.

It is my role to help you lovingly craft a ceremony that makes your family smile and will leave you with a warm and heart-bolstering feeling inside. Agnostic Scotland has a Community Fund to help provide affordable ceremonies for all. If you feel you need support paying for your ceremony, please let me know.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to planning a Naming, Welcome-to-the-World or Family Celebration. You might be looking for a traditional Naming Ceremony with readings, a declaration of the names being given, promises from the parents, and Guide- or God-parents. You may wish to include elements of religion such as prayers or blessings, or create an entirely non-religious ceremony.

You might be seeking a ceremony that is heart-centred and holistic.

You might be wanting a light, fun ceremony that is full of child-focussed joy.

Everything is your choice. I will do my very best to create a ceremony for you that captures perfectly the essence of your family and the small, or not-so-small, people being celebrated.

Funerals

If you would like me to help you to plan, write and deliver a life celebration and memorial ceremony for your loved one, then it would be my honour and privilege to work with you.

If you are nearing the end of your life and are looking for someone thoughtful, calm and light of heart to help you plan your funeral, life celebration or memorial gathering then it would be my privilege to support you.

Due to the nature of my work-life commitments, I am only able to plan memorial or life celebration ceremonies that are at least a month into the future. For this reason, the focus of my funeral support is on memorial gatherings, intimate memorial celebrations, and end of life funeral planning. I am unable to support the planning of short-notice funerals.

An Agnostic ceremony is one that is inclusive and open-minded. It is possible to entirely reflect your, or the person you are grieving for’s, own unique blend of beliefs and values. All words, music, symbolic elements and rituals are entirely your choice.

A memorial ceremony can be collaborative, involving wider family and friends. It can be unique and personal to you.

I do my very best to ensure that the ceremony we create gives you the opportunity to say everything you wish to say and do everything you wish to do in order to truly pay tribute to and celebrate the life of the person being honoured.

I am flexible in how I work, responding to the needs and wishes of the families and individuals I support. I am always open to sharing time with wider family and friends to create a ceremony that is reflective of your wishes.

Why choose Onie for your funeral?

I will take the time to get to know you, to find out everything that I can about the loved one you are grieving for, and to help you create a ceremony that you feel proud of and that truly does you or your loved one justice.

If you are planning your own funeral, life celebration or memorial gathering then I would share time with you to truly understand, respect and reflect your wishes for your ceremony.

In some situations I am able to offer in-kind support for those who are unable to afford the proposed fees.

Wedding | 03/23/2024 | Newhall Estate

Onie recently led our wedding ceremony at Newhall Estate. We wanted something short and sweet, but detailed enough to capture the spirit of our relationship and love story. Onie spoke beautifully during the ceremony, and was such a support in helping us create vows that were reflective of our beliefs and personal to us. We can’t thank you enough for all the support and guidance in the run up to our wedding. Many of our guests have commented on how personal and unique the ceremony was.

Wedding | 07/05/2024 | Shieldaig Lodge, Gairloch

Onie is a truly fantastic celebrant. She is warm, friendly, and utterly devoted to building a truly personal wedding ceremony. She took so much time to get to know us, and to understand what our wedding day meant to us. Her craftsmanship of our ceremony was truly incredible, and it meant the world to us to have, on our special day, our feelings so eloquently and faithfully captured, and the words and memories of our loved ones relayed so beautifully.

Thank you so much Onie!

Wedding | 04/22/2024 | Quiraing, Isle of SKye

We highly recommend Onie for your celebrant! She is such a kind and calming presence and absolutely incredible to work with. We had so many worries about how to coordinate our wedding ceremony in a foreign country, where to start with Marriage Visa’s, where the local Registrant’s office was for submitting our documents in Scotland. Onie was there every step of the way to provide guidance on who to contact to get us started early and headed in the right direction. Early on Onie sent over a wonderfully detailed document covering our entire ceremony, how to write vows, options for bits we may have been nervous about or unsure of how to proceed. She had us complete private portions which neither of us saw until our big day. Onie made us wonderful scrolls so we could read our vows portions as we were so nervous we could not remember anything or keep or thoughts straight on the big day. Onie also conducted our handfasting and she offered several example videos to give us tons of options to choose our style of knot and walk us through the process. We had multiple video chats and feel that she really took the time to get to know us and the end result was a very personal, heartfelt and emotional ceremony that had us both in tears. It was everything we wanted and more. You should absolutely go with Onie for your celebrant she is the best!
