We always aim to provide ceremonies which reflect the beliefs of the people who commission us. However, we are authorised to perform legal weddings by National Records of Scotland and the Scottish Pagan Federation, so any legal weddings we perform must be Pagan or include some 'Earth Spirituality'. We define a Pagan as someone who finds deity / spirit / energy expressed through nature – we are aware that different definitions of Paganism exist and we try to honour all paths with the intention of providing a service that is tailored to your personal experience of spirituality.


We can provide legal weddings for same-sex AND opposite-sex couples - and are always delighted to do so.
