Weddings



Here in Scotland we have the freedom to be married wherever and however we like, and as a legally registered Interfaith Celebrant, that gives me great freedom to help you have the wedding ceremony of your dreams just as you imagine it.

 Would you like a Celtic hand fasting in the ruins of an ancient abbey, or on the banks of a river? Or to exchange your vows in your own home or garden? My remit is to build your wedding service round your own beliefs and aspirations, as a personal expression of your commitment and love for each other.

Getting married is a big step, and to tie the knot surrounded by those you love, is a truly meaningful occasion. If a church wedding is not right for you, and a civil ceremony seems to lack warmth and personal content, then I can offer you an alternative that could be just what you have been looking for. Unlike a Humanist Celebrant, I can include some spiritual references in your ceremony, which may  fit with your own or your family's beliefs, it's your choice.

 This is how the process works: 

  • You contact me and we discuss your wedding over the phone, or by Skype.
  • If you decide to go ahead, I will ask you to reflect on your own vision for your marriage, and give me some feedback.
  • If it's suitable, we meet for a chat, and discuss what kind of wedding ceremony you would like.
  • I will create a draft ceremony specifically for you..
  • Over the period before the wedding I will be available by phone or e-mail to help you, by adjusting and finalising all the details of your wedding service.
  • A rehearsal may be available if you live in the Borders area, otherwise please enquire about availability and cost. 
  • I will of course be there on the big day, to conduct your wedding and sign the marriage schedule, declaring you legally married.

Some lovely things people have said 

"Morag performed the impossible feat of pleasing everyone.  She united Spiritualists and Agnostics, Cynics and Optimists, Protestants and Catholics with a ceremony that was special and unique.  So many of our guests commented on how wonderful and emotional it was. 
 
She also counselled us on the massive task of marriage, that great step into the planned unknown.  She wasn't fazed with our unusual venue or our disparate beliefs, instead she supported us, blessed us, and gently helped us with the elements of our service.  We could not have done it without her."

Nicky and Ross


"Nick and I decided to have an Interfaith celebrant to marry us as we didn't want to be restricted in what we had in our ceremony.  We felt that as it was our wedding, we should be able to show our feelings and beliefs in our own way. 

  We were recommended Morag through a friend.  She was fantastic, we met up with her a couple of times before the big day to discuss what format we would like the wedding to take and for Morag to get to know us.  By doing this, it enabled her to give us ideas on how we could make the ceremony our own.  Neither of us are particularly religious but do have some spiritual beliefs and the Interfaith foundation enabled us to express ourselves in front of our friends and family in a way that was comfortable for us.

  The ceremony itself was very relaxed, very "us" and everybody commented on how nice it was and that it was one of the nicest weddings they had ever been to.  We loved every minute of our wedding and are both so pleased Morag was able to conduct the most important part of our day."

Caroline and Nick

 Our wedding ceremony was perfect in every way. Morag helped us put together a ceremony that was completely our style and vibe and helped us be ourselves and respond to each other naturally. We were able to bring in elements of all our beliefs and all that is important to us as well as incorporate ancient traditions along with modern ones. It was just what we wanted and everyone who witnessed it agreed it was one of the most sincere and straight-from-the-heart ceremonies they had been a part of. 

 Ziggy and Rebekah.

Morag created the most wonderful service for our wedding.  Morag listened to our ideas as well as presenting her own to make the ceremony beautiful and personal.  Our ceremony reflected our values as a couple, incorporated a religious aspect and a we also included hand fastening to give the ceremony a true Scottish feel!  We loved our ceremony and so many of our guest complimented it as one of the best they had ever heard! We couldn’t have been more delighted or privileged to have had Morag conduct our wedding ceremony.

Jill and Steven    


The service was exactly what we wanted and so personal, lots of our family have said it was the nicest service they've ever been to. Your work on the day and in the run up to it was much appreciated

Pamela and Marcus



Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us such a heartfelt, beautiful, personal service. You have a lovely gift in totally understanding what people are looking for.

Laura and Stu

I (Laura's mum) just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the beautiful ceremony you conducted for Laura and Stu on the occasion of their marriage. So many people have commented on your lovely wedding ceremony - simple but yet very loving and moving. Thank you so much for your contribution to an amazing and lovely day which all went just as Laura and Stu had hoped it would.
The happiness and love that Laura and Stu felt most certainly shone out brightly lighting up the day.

I just wanted to say a massive thanks for the wonderful ceremony you put together for Martin and I. We had so many comments about how personal it was to us and not your average ceremony.
You put us at ease throughout with  your lovely smile and calming voice! :)
We had the most wonderful day and cannot thank you enough for all of your help and advice.

Martin and Katy




We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day so special. Everyone loved our ceremony, as did we! Our wedding day was amazing,

Emma and Darren


I just wanted to let you know how very much we appreciated your part in our wedding! Everything was absolutely perfect (aside from my not being able to get the ring on Andrew's finger!), and you made us feel so at ease! It was just the right blend of humour, fun and sincerity, and we really appreciated all of the work you did in making the ceremony very special and personal to us. So thank you SO much

Tara and Andrew


Thank you Morag for a wonderful ceremony, it is all we could have asked for - and much more! We were delighted to be able to personalise our wedding to such an extent; to be able to incorporate so naturally
the various aspects and beliefs that are meaningful to us, and to live our dream to be married on the beach. 

Morag supported and guided us in planning the perfect ceremony for our needs, and kept in contact regularly in the lead up to the big day. With a wonderful, sunny
presence on our special day, she beautifully conducted the ceremony with genuineness, care and much warmth, and the service was intimate, emotional and heartfelt. Morag was the perfect person to marry us!

Liam and Laura


I do not know if words can adequately express how perfect Morag's participation in our wedding was. We wanted an interfaith ceremony to allow us to add spirituality to our ceremony without the specific guidelines of any one religion. Morag was recommended to us by our wedding planner and they could not have made a better selection.
Despite geographical distance (we live in the United States), Morag walked us through the planning of our ceremony with ease. Her questionnaire to get to know us helped us realize what was really important for us in our ceremony and the sample vows and readings made it really easy for us to refine and pick out the words that were perfect for us. After sending tons of information to her, she skillfully organized a beautiful and fluid ceremony. But I would be remiss if I did not mention the most important aspect of working with Morag - her personality. She has a very warm and comforting personality that instantly relaxed us. Upon our initial meeting to discus the logistics, we knew the next day would go well. During the ceremony, she kept us calm and smiling. And shouldn't every bride and groom be smiling during their wedding!

Laura and Corey


Thank you so much for the beautiful service you conducted for us. We had so many lovely comments from our guests about how personal and meaningful it was. We had the best day of our lives! Thank you once again for making it so special.

Harriot and Pete


I just want to say that we feel blessed that you conducted our wedding ceremony and it was just perfect in every way. You put us at ease and the service was so relevant to Neil & I - everyone was raving about it!
I'll never forget how you made us feel and how you brought so much love into the hall that day.

Suzie and Neil


We want to thank you for conducting our ceremony on our wedding day. We thought it was beautiful, so special and personal and many people have commented on how much they liked it. We're so grateful to you for making it perfect for us so, thank you!

Colette and Ian


Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special.

George and Abby


Stefan and I would like to thank you massively for conducting our wedding ceremony yesterday. It was just perfect, and every single guest commented on how lovely it was as it was so personal and touching.We have also been informed that never before have people been to such an emotional and romantic ceremony and there wasn't a dry eye in the house.It was more than Stefan and I could ever have dreamed of and we can't thank you enough. It was an honour to have met you,

Lynsey and Stefan

We can't express how meaningful, personal and romantic our wedding ceremony was thanks to Morag. She took so much time to carefully understand our relationship, our spirituality, and what marriage truly means to us and expressed all of these things so eloquently. Many of our friends and family said they had never heard such beautiful and thoughtful words at a wedding, and we couldn't agree more. Thank you, Morag, for being such an important part of the best day of our lives.

Jenni and Stuart

Mike and I wanted to say thank you for Saturday, the ceremony was everything we had hoped for, really personal and true to us. We are still both keep on welling up just thinking about it. 

Sophie and Mike

Morag was the perfect person to conduct our marriage ceremony in September 2015. From researching, getting in touch initially and right the way through to the wedding itself, she was a wonderful reassuring ray of sunshine. Such a wonderful and warm person who really took time to talk through everything with us, make very apt suggestions and conduct a fabulous service for us. We could not imagine anyone else doing such a beautiful job. Our friends, family and guests thoroughly enjoyed her ceremony which incorporated everything we asked for and really managed to communicate our love in our words throughout the ceremony.

Claire & Alan

Our service was beautiful, incredibly personal and filled with words that make us smile often. When we were thinking about what we wanted in our ceremony we didn't want it to be overly formal but in the same context, we didn't want it to be too casual. The ceremony, your words and our vows were a perfect balance.  Thank you for doing such a fantastic job in the build up and on the day! From the moment I found your site I knew you were who we had been looking for. After our first call I was so excited. Liam & I had considered a few different options and spoken to a registrar & a humanist but neither felt to be what we were looking for. Liam and I were raised differently, Liam a Catholic & I was not raised with a religion. I wanted to find a way of getting married to recognise Liam & his family's faith, without the formality of a Catholic service. You were our answer and performed the most beautiful service that many of our friends and family have since asked about.

Janine and Liam


The wedding was such a lovely day and the ceremony you performed was beautiful! It was filled with so much light and love. Thank you so much again. We both loved every second of it and so many people have commented on what a lovely ceremony it was. Even my old 92 year old auntie said it was the most original and personal ceremony she's been too (and she's been to a lot!!). I think the biggest compliment is that two of our guests wanted your details for their own weddings!

Suzanne and William


Morag, we wanted to write to thank you for being such a special part of our wedding. You made the process leading up to the wedding easy and enjoyable, and on the day you officiated the ceremony with care, tenderness and great professionalism. You created a really special moment for us, which remains the high point of an amazing weekend overall. Our sincere thanks. 

 David and Jessica


Our wedding ceremony was everything we could have hoped for and more. You tailored it perfectly to our beliefs and personalities and everyone has told us what a touching and intimate experience it was to be part of it. You took the time to get to know us, our relationship and what marriage meant for us and encouraged us to look beyond the day itself, to create personalised vows which truly represented our lasting commitment to one another and our hopes and promises for the future. It was the truest reflection of our love and commitment put into words and shared with our closest friends and family in the most beautiful way, and we can't thank you enough for this.

 Lisa & Colin


We both want to say a massive thank you, the service you did for our wedding ceremony it was without a doubt-outstanding, better than we imagined and just perfect.From us first contacting you, you have been reassuring, very professional and knowledge giving us ideas and information but also easy to talk to like a friend.Our wedding day was perfect, the service you did was so heartfelt, genuine and meaningful it really was special, some of our guests commented how brilliant and unique it was too.

You made me feel at ease when I saw you at Anvil Hall before I came in and Dave also while he was waiting for me. We both really enjoyed it and appreciate your efforts in putting it all together, the questionnaires you gave us and how you put that part together was lovely, the handfasting and your words were great and felt really symbolic just like we wanted and you did a fabulous job of striking the Anvil!

Really cannot thank you enough

Lianne & David
