Celebrant - Lucy Black

"Before I had even made any contact with Lucy, I already knew she was the one I wanted to marry Liam and myself. I had read lots of fantastic reviews about her and as soon as I could I snapped her up. From the very first email to meeting her on the day I honestly couldn't fault her one bit. She was very responsive to my random emails, informative every step of the way and just the loveliest lady I have ever met. Anyone would be lucky to have her conduct there ceremony! She got me through the ceremony with only one slip of a tissue, i did say she'd need a man sized box haha! Her always being fully booked speaks volumes in itself. I'm so glad to have had her and will miss our wee emails! So once again thank you Lucy from me and Liam, we hope to bump into you again sometime but until then keep being the absolute start that you are! Lots of love from the Johnston's xxx"

"From our first conversation with Thistle Ceremonies, Phyl has been fantastic, personable, attentive and very helpful. In the 8(ish) weeks since I chose Phyl to be our celebrant she has made sure we have felt like we were her only bride and groom (which I’m certainly sure wouldn’t have been the case).


On the day itself, coming out to see me and my dad, providing a wee reassuring hug, explaining what’s happening next and telling me how beautiful I looked was so lovely. She carried out her role, professionally, with such detail and unique to us. All my guests commented on how amazing the service was and how great Phyl summed both of us up; individually and together. Thanks again for sharing our day."

"Elizabeth was amazing from the moment we first got in contact with her, putting us at ease from that very first zoom call during the pandemic. She was always quick to respond to any questions we had and we felt she truly listened to our story and captured it beautifully within the ceremony on the day. All of our family and friends had nothing but wonderful things to say about Elizabeth and thought that the ceremony she provided was one of the best they had ever been too. She was more like a friend to us by the time the wedding day arrived and we appreciated the simple things too like the fact she signed our guest book first which influenced others to follow suit and the fact she came to both of our rooms before the ceremony to check in and see how we were doing. We could not have asked for a better humanist and will always recommend Elizabeth!"

Heath & Craig - Dundee (July 2022)

Celebrant - Lucy Black

"Alexis is very pleasant and service minded. In the first conversation, she was well prepared and asked good follow-up questions that helped us remember things that we are glad we included in the Eulogy. The first draft for the ceremony was well written and she did not mind the adjustments we suggested.


She also did very well to include the additional input we wanted her to share and still keeping the "Red thread".


I feel that she managed to both understand and present how our Mum was as a person and how she had lived her life. And she also did it with a bit of humor, which I think is important for a funeral. The congregation all found that they could recognize our Mum in what she said and that it was a beautiful ceremony.


Alexis has all the right qualities as a Celebrant and I can highly recommend her."

Torunn - Glasgow (June 2022)

Since then her communication via email throughout the pandemic has been excellent, always there to offer advice on any questions we had. She produced such a personal ceremony for us, everyone commented on how nice it was. We really feel like Jean has become a friend to us and we couldn't have asked for a better person to conduct our ceremony."

Hazel & Robert - Kilsyth (June 2022)

"Jean Steele from Thistle Ceremonies was our celebrant for our wedding at Glencorse House.


We had such a wonderful experience with Jean right from the get go! Jean was so friendly, warm and professional and listened to our story as well as asking all the right questions. She was able to translate our story into such beautiful words for the ceremony. So many of our friends and family (especially the ones from down south who were new to humanist & Scottish weddings) commented on how much they loved the ceremony, especially the mixing of traditions with modern touches, the personal stories and Jean’s beautiful writing and delivery.


We couldn’t have been happier and we are so happy that Jean was our celebrant on the biggest day of our lives.


Thank you!"

Celebrant - Billy Ward

"Where do we start, from day one Tegan was absolutely incredible. She was so organised and made what feels like a very daunting process, really easy and stress free from start to finish.


On the day, Tegan even put the extra effort in to come and see us before the ceremony to make sure we were calm and ready for the ceremony. She had even printed out our vows and the readings our family were doing, taking all the pressure and stress away from us.


Her personality fitted in perfectly with what we hoped for in a celebrant - she was so bubbly, energetic, funny and made sure every single detail was personalised to us. She had all of our guests laughing with us reminiscing on our story of our journey to

marriage, while also including anecdotes of our precious sentimental moments.


We cannot put into words how much we would recommend having Tegan there on your day. We had so many comments from guests on how amazing she was, saying the ceremony was one of the best they had even seen.


Thank you so much Tegan, we appreciate everything you did for us and for making our day that little bit more memorable."

Before the big day Lucy kept in touch and made sure to include all the little bits that were important for us for our day.


I can honestly say we had the best time and cannot thank her enough for how special she made it for us.

"Anne Skelton was the celebrant at my son's funeral, Anne had visited my home and sat and listened as the family shared memories about my son, Anne listened to our memories and very skillfully captured my son's character and what he meant to us as a family, she delivered an outstanding euology that brought a great deal of comfort to everyone in attendance and I will forever be in her debt for the kindness, sensitivity, tenderness, respect and compassion she demonstrated from the first time I met her to the present day, I would fully recommend Anne as a celebrant she is a genuine caring lady."

Tegan made me feel so comfortable and at ease and the entire ceremony was so personal and light hearted- exactly what we wanted. Our guests were laughing with us during the ceremony and also feeling all the love and emotions too. We had a ring warming ceremony and drank from the quiach and every moment felt so special. We were really able to be present.


Our guests (and I mean, ALL of them) commented on how this was the best ceremony they’ve ever witnessed! Wow! I can’t wait to watch it back!! Tegan has a beautiful voice and demeanor and I just know we wouldn’t have gotten those comments had we chosen someone else to conduct the moment important moment of our lives!

Constance's has a genuine kindness and heartfelt interest in our love story and played a pivotal role in filling our wedding ceremony with connection. From beginning to end she was there ensuring everything proceeded smoothly, when my hand ties went missing she went out of her way to buy some for us the day of! We had no family at our ceremony but with Constance by our side, we felt like we did. We will forever be grateful to her and will plan on having a baby naming ceremony with her in the future and we live all the way in San Diego! It is not a exaggeration to say she was the magic ingredient, insuring our ceremony was perfect. She also looked beautiful and matched my wedding aesthetic perfectly.

Billy Ward was absolutely fantastic and made the whole ceremony completely personal. Any one who can make the guests laugh is a winner for me. He put both of us at ease and took time to speak to us both in amongst the mayhem. I really liked the joke he told about his wife as that set the humour for the whole ceremony. It was an added bonus that his wife was there to take pictures and capture the moments others missed.


I am also pleased to say that on the day we raised £250 through donations and I know other guests payed online through the website to the wonderful charity that is Callums Cabin."

"No room for improvement, couldn't of asked for a better celebrant from first contact Jean was amazing.


We can't thank Jean enough for being such a big part of our special day. From day 1 Jeans amazing service was apparent and she was always on hand to answer any queries we had. The first draft we received of our ceremony was spot on and we couldn't of asked for any better. It was so lovely to finally meet Jean in person on our big day and all the guests at our wedding commented on how amazing she was and how great the ceremony was. Jean really captured our story and we will forever be greatfull for her being such a big and special part of our day.

"I wanted to let you know how you fab we thought you were on Saturday. We couldn’t have found a more perfect person to conduct the ceremony for us. You are such a warm, lovely person who told our story so well. We felt so relaxed beside you, you truly made us laugh, cry and feel all the emotions through your story telling and hand fasting. The process up to the big day has been faultless, you have been so helpful and reassuring and made us aware of everything we have needed to do, making the whole process easy.


We have received so many lovely compliments of the ceremony, our guests thought you were the perfect person to tell our tales. I really hope we will see you again in the future."

Celebrant - Lucy Black

"Everything was perfect.The ceremony that Tegan collated and brought to life was the best part of our wedding day. We could not recommend her highly enough. She really gets to know you and she brings your essence as a couple into the ceremony, everything is tailored exactly to suit you, which makes it so personal. Not only does she create the perfect ceremony but she is also a background support during the planning, helping with all of the legal paperwork. She was the fastest responding person at any point in the planning process by miles, which trust me you will really appreciate. But that’s what Tegan does, she genuinely cares and puts you at ease not only on your wedding day but the entire lead up also. I think every guest at our wedding has mentioned Tegan and the beautiful ceremony she delivered for us, I will cherish this memory forever, and I couldn’t recommend her enough."

"Firstly, I’d just like to say that Andrew and I would give Jean full 5 stars and everything she did was perfection.


Wow, where do I begin. Jean is a beautiful woman inside and out.


The way she conducted our ceremony was flawless from start to finish. I can honestly say if it wasn't for Jean, our ceremony would not have been as good as it was. She was emotional, personal, and it wasn't like a stranger conducting our ceremony, it was a friend who had known us for years! The way she wrote the ceremony was absolutely beautiful, and when speaking to our guests they said that the ceremony was the best part of the day!


Jean, we adore you and anyone would be lucky to have you as their humanist.
All our Love, Sophie and Andrew x"

In the morning I was very nervous but Lucy came and spoke with me and helped me relax.


The ceremony itself was perfect and we've had so many comments saying it's the best ceremony they've been too. We done the sand ceremony which a lot of our guests hadn't seen before and thought it was a lovely touch. This was suggested by Lucy. 10/10"

Alana & Greg - Broughty Ferry (February 2022)

Celebrant - Tegan Elder

"Lucy conducted our ceremony, she kept us right in all the legalities and the options we had for our ceremony. We chose Lucy because her personality shines through on her socials, she’s so bubbly and energetic but also shows empathy and understanding. If you want someone that gets all the little things and the emotions in why your doing them. Lucy is for you.


She conducted our ceremony beautifully, every word was spoken with patience and crystal clear for everyone to hear. During the ceremony, we are in a whirlwind and our minds and hearts were racing. There’s nothing to worry about here as Lucy will keep you right where you need to be.


Her ceremony script will settle any worries as it’s so clear and precise even with who stands where.


Thank you so much for being part of our day Lucy, we are so happy that you were part of it and we felt a little sad as your time in our day felt like it was over in a flash!
Love all the photos you sent of our little details and of course that we finally got our selfie with you after watching so many before us."

"We asked Billy to conduct our wedding. Due to covid it didn’t go ahead as planned. I wanted to review Billy though, as he was really helpful as we were planning our ceremony. He came to see us and get to know us a bit before writing the script. He helped with the paperwork and sent lots of suggestions for the ceremony itself. When I called him to say the plans had changed he was more than gracious about it even although he had put in a bit of work already. He is approachable and helpful."

Kenny - Glasgow (November 2021)

Celebrant - Phyl Wright

"From the very first meeting with Phyl. She made us feel that we had known her for a long time. This immediately put us at ease. She was so sympathetic and caring to our needs. Many of the things she told us on her preparation were very impressive and put myself at ease. During preparation for the Eulogy there was a last minute change that Phyl dealt with and accepted impeccably.


For the service itself she delivered it exactly as written and with great skill in public speaking. Many of the mourners commented on this to myself later what a fantastic job she made of telling my father's life story. For this myself and my family shall ever be thankful to Phyl and Thistle ceremonies."

Jean had the perfect balance between funny and sentimental and we couldn't have asked for a better start to our married life."
