WHAT WE DO

People and what is important to them is the centre of everything we offer.  We all have different beliefs and what is important in our lives:  what gives our life meaning, what we value, what gives us purpose.  We conduct ceremonies and offer our other services that reflect just exactly that.  

 

We travel all over Scotland and beyond to hear what is important to you and how you would like us to mark and create something special.  We all have life changing moments, and we want to do our part in helping make that all that you want it to be.  

 

We create Funerals, focussing on Celebrating or marking a life. 

 

We create naming and welcoming ceremonies for wee ones (and big ones too!)

 

We marry ALL who love each other in legally recognised marriage, as well as renewal of vows or celebrations of love.

 

We travel to you - Ayrshire, Renfrewshire,  Lanarkshire, Edinburgh and the Lothians, Highland and Islands, Dumfries and Galloway,  We are often asked to go to Ireland and England and Wales too.  Celebrate People has celebrants all over and can recommend people close to you.

Ceremonies

Weddings  |  Namings  |  Funerals  |  Your Own Ceremony 

Since 2003, our celebrants have conducted ceremonies throughout Scotland and beyond. A Celebrate People ceremony is a personal reflection of who you are and what is important to you.  We call that spiritual care and sometimes that can includesa sacred reading or music.

We provide pastoral care to families, individuals and couples.  We are often called the 'family celebrant' as we conduct marriages or namings or funerals for the same families over two decades

Several of our celebrants are humanist chaplains are Edinburgh University, Heriot-Watt university and hospices in Scotland.  We even have a REAL Santa who has visited people at the end of life. THAT is what we call person centred spiritual care.
