Wedding Ceremonies In Cumbria & South West Scotland
What Can You Tell Me About Your Wedding Ceremonies?
Firstly, it may be important to you to know about the style of ceremony created by me.
I am able to be flexible about the style as people differ widely in their beliefs and requirements.
If conducted in a humanist style, there would be no mention of the divine, Spirit, God etc, or any reference to an alternative reality that exists outside of this one. Your friends and family are your witnesses and what is valued in our world is upheld and recognised. It would still be possible to have readings of divine or religious poetry or from the scriptures of one of the faith paths.
You might prefer a more religious style if one or both of you practices a faith, or if you belong to families where religious beliefs are important. So, you could make your vows ‘before God’, and include traditional prayers, readings and even hymns if you would like to.
Alternative spiritualities can also be accommodated with appropriate elements as desired. I have officiated a number of ceremonies as a wedding celebrant in Cumbria and South West Scotland, and I am here to discover the perfect ceremony for you.
Over time I have found that couples’ preferences for the type of ceremony they would like can be very varied, according to their style and beliefs.

Celebrate Your Marriage
There are no particular rituals or words ordinarily in use by OneSpirit ministers to celebrate and consecrate your marriage, and this means that you have the freedom to create a ceremony to suit you, and I am here to help you do that.
At your wedding you can celebrate your own individuality, and also be married in a way that harmonises those particular cultures that have formed and influenced each of you and your families and friends. Sometimes this is very important, if for example the two of you come from very different backgrounds or cultures. Whatever is important and distinctive about your life and your relationship, you can have a ceremony that reflects that and truly feels meaningful and personal to you.
A Simple Ceremony
Your wedding can be a brief, straightforward, no-fuss ceremony that is perfect for a couple who tends to see their wedding as a private and personal affair, with the understanding that perhaps ‘less is more’. However, your vows, the blessing and a reading may be personalised, and you can include prayers and mentions of particular family members or friends. A ring blessing is usually included too and, of course, the ‘Pronouncement’ that you are married – this is an important condition of your legal wedding in Scotland, and if in England, when you will take part in a separate legal wedding process, we will of course still be making something important of the thrilling nature of this event!
