"We had our wedding in November this year and our celebrant Jean, she done an amazing job and really made our ceremony special and personal, we had a lot of comments from our guests about our ceremony, highly recommend!"

Victoria & Gary - Glasgow (November 2022)

Celebrant - Jean Steele

"Jean was fantastic, making our ceremony so personal and special. She took the time to meet us and give us lots of options to write the ceremony and also with all the paperwork that needed to be submitted. Nothing was too much trouble and she even helped with extra forms as my wife-to-be had to get a new passport a few months before the ceremony. On the day everyone commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was. Thank you Jean!"

"We choose Constance Bartley of Thistle Ceremonies to conduct our wedding ceremony as we knew it would be personal and delivered with compassion and sensitivity within a hospital setting.


Constance understood our needs and assisted us with every aspect including obtaining a special license.


Days later I chose Constance to conduct the funeral of my husband which she did with warmth, respect and great dignity.


I have no hesitation in recommending Constance who has shown resilience and professionalism during extremely emotional situations. This provided care and support for those immediately involved."

"Tegan Elder conducted our marriage ceremony at Forbes of Kingennie on Saturday 12 November and it couldn't have been better!


From the very first meeting with Tegan, she kept in regular contact with us in the run-up to the big day. With so much to plan and organise, Tegan's assistance was invaluable and made everything feel so much easier. At what can be quite a stressful time pulling everything together, Tegan always made us feel at ease.


On the day of the wedding itself, Tegan was fantastic as always. All of the guests remarked on what a lovely ceremony it was: funny, kind, loving, and with a personal touch. We felt like we'd known Tegan for years!


We can't speak highly enough of Tegan and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services. She's a star!"

"I would like to thank Billy Ward for conducting my late brothers funeral a few weeks ago. I booked Billy after recently attending a friends funeral. Myself and other family members were delighted with how Billy collated the information provided and put together the service. Billy acted with the highest empathy and sensitivity at all times. I would recommend Billy if ever someone was looking for a humanist."

Celebrant - Lucy Black

"Tegan was amazing! Our wedding was in Scotland but we were organising from Ireland and Tegan kept us right the whole way through! We were blown away by the ceremony she wrote and couldn't believe how perfectly she captured everything just based on a few lovely chats together. On the day, Tegan was beyond brilliant. She checked in with the bridal party and grooms party before the ceremony, and even brought copies of readings our friends were doing (one less thing for us to worry about!). I thought I might be very nervous on the day, but knowing what was in store and that we were in Tegan's hands made me a very relaxed bride and I actually had a ball walking down the aisle! So many of our guests commented on how lovely Tegan was and how personal and special the ceremony was. We are DELIGHTED we booked Tegan - thanks for being a big part of making our day the joy that it was! Hannah and Colm, x"

Hannah & Colm - Cork (September 2022)

Celebrant - Tegan Elder

"From the moment we asked Lucy to be our Celebrant right up to saying I do, she was there. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she was always on hand for advice and support.


Lucy is a bubbly, warm, gentle and beautiful person throughout. She made everyone feel at ease and conducted the most beautiful ceremony. Lucy was so patient with our little boy who was feeling a little overwhelmed and no matter what hiccup was thrown her way she handled it with grace and humour.


Lucy is absolutely second to none and there are not enough words to describe how grateful we are to have had her as part of our day. If we could do it all again, Lucy would be our first choice, again and again.


Thank you Lucy from the bottom of our hearts.

Marlene & David - Dundee (October 2022)

Celebrant - Jean Steele

"Wow! We don't even know where to begin, blown away by the time and effort put in by Tegan for our wedding day.


From our first meeting at a wedding fayre up to our day Tegan made us feel at ease, listened too and we genuinely felt her passion for her job shine through with every single encounter.


She was our guru for most things wedding related who even went out her way to help find a company that would engrave our oathing stone. Our ceremony was perfect, better than we had hoped for, her calm nature really helped settle the nerves for us too. A humanist approach allowed us to shape our ceremony with Tegan’s guidance into one full of laughter, memories and incorporated all things us perfectly.


It came to no surprise to us the amount of compliments we had on the day about Tegan and the ceremony as a whole, our families echo our praise and thanks."

Louise & Jack - Dundee (October 2022)

"Tegan was absolutely brilliant throughout the whole process. All of our needs were met and she endeavoured to make the ceremony as personal as possible whilst providing helpful tips and examples throughout. The conversations that we had with her were used expertly to make the ceremony truly feel like it was special to us and all of our guests have commented on how lovely it was. The use of the sand ceremony and the hand fasting really added to how personal it was and we will always remember our special day. We could not recommend Tegan highly enough to anyone else about to get married."

The first was my parents 60th wedding anniversary wedding vow renewal. My Dad passed away a few months later and we chose Thistle Ceremonies for a humanist service. We married Recently and wanted to celebrate our wedding with traditional symbolic gestures. Constance gave us so many ideas to make our day so special and memorable.

"We cannot thank Jean enough for conducting our wedding ceremony. I went into the initial meeting with Jean, feeling a bit clueless and lost with what we needed to do but she put my mind at ease straight away. Jean was great at sending email reminders for completing paperwork and was very prompt in her responses when ever we had any questions etc.


On the day, seeing Jean’s friendly face before I walked down the aisle helped me to relax a little bit.


We wanted to share our sense of humour with of guests and we think that Jean did a great job with this.
We would recommend Jean to everybody!


Thank you for giving us the best ceremony we could have wanted."

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"

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.

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.

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."

"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!"

"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."

"Where to start… Lucy is kind, caring and put us at ease throughout the whole process. (Which, when you’re planning a wedding is exactly what you need !)


We’d had our first wedding postponed due to covid and Lucy kept us organised and informed throughout.


The ceremony was perfect with Lucy telling our story in such a personal way. She managed to capture our lives together and make us all smile. Thank you again, Yvonne and Adam X"

Celebrant - Phyl Wright

"We spoke with a few celebrants before finding Lucy and I can honestly say she made us feel at ease immediately so it was a very easy decision to have her conduct our ceremony.


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.


Everyone there said just how amazing the ceremony was and how nice it was that our story was told and spoke of how attentive she was before, during and after our ceremony with everyone involved.


so once again thank you Lucy for everything you done for us!"

Jorden & Martin - Denny (June 2022)

"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."

We then had a zoom call with her and she put us so at ease and helped us feel more relaxed about the big day. She arrived in plenty of time and came to see/chat to us both. She did an excellent job and was so lovely!! All of our guests commented on how nice she was, how well spoken and how wonderful the ceremony was. Would highly recommend her!"

"It was perfect from start to finish! From the minute we enquired Lucy was a delight to deal with. She's such a warming and kind person and we just took to her straight away.


She was calming and informative every step of the way and always put our mind at ease, even when suppliers were pulling out. Her little visit on the morning of the wedding kept the nerves at bay. The ceremony was everything we dreamed of and more. Lucy delivered the ceremony in a light hearted way which felt very us!


We have had so many positive comments about how beautiful it was.


Thank you for being such a big part of our special day."

Lucy was superb throughout the whole process, she was super friendly, approachable and incredibly helpful to name a few! Her advice on the M10 forms was invaluable too as it is easy for someone with no knowledge of these things to become confused with it all. We would recommend Lucy to anyone looking for a celebrant!"

"I knew we had chosen the right person to marry us when we met tegan through zoom for the first time! She’s so lovely and genuine and asked all the right questions to get to know us! I really knew we chose the right person when we were in the middle of the ceremony and just having the best time of our lives. 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!


Thank you Tegan! You are a true gem and we are so lucky to have had you be a huge part of our special day! Cheers!!"

"Constance is a absolute dream come true, we cant imagine our wedding without her. 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.


Thank you Constance and thank you Thistle!"

"it was all just perfect for us.


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."
