Real feedback

I hope these few words from some of the couples I have married give you a flavour of my approach and my delivery:

“Hi Brian,

We just wanted to also let you know how fantastic our ceremony was. It was truly personal and it was without a doubt my favourite part of the day. Our guests (many of whom had never attended a Humanist ceremony before) were blown away by it. They loved how quickly you put them at ease with some humorous remarks and I believe that you created a relaxed and happy feeling that lasted throughout our whole day (and night!). You were wonderful and I cannot thank you enough for making our wedding ceremony so memorable with the perfect balance of laughter and tears!”

Victoria and Joe, Married at Dundas Castle, 11th April 2015


“We chose to have a humanist ceremony as we wanted to celebrate our marriage in a personal way which reflected our relationship and personalities…and that’s exactly what we got!   Meeting you in advance really helped us prepare/build the ceremony so we had nothing to worry about on the big day.   Keith recalls all the guests being put at ease with your humour before I arrived and during the ceremony we felt like the only people in the room.  Saying our vows was such a special moment and one we will never forget; you really kept us relaxed and happy throughout.   Having my choir sing after we signed the register was the icing on the (wedding) cake to what was already the most magical part or our day!”

Fiona and Keith, Married at Oran Mor, 21st March 2015

“Hi Brian,

As soon as we met Brian we knew his sense of humour and relaxed approach would suit our wedding perfectly. We wanted a friendly, relaxed and humorous service which Brian delivered impeccably. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the personal touches which were included and Brian’s heartfelt delivery of our feelings for each other. It truly was a memorable service and we would highly recommend Brian, both to help guide you to construct a personal ceremony and also deliver it with gusto on your special day.”

Barry and Lorna, Married at the Caves in Edinburgh, 25th September 2015

“Dear Brian,

Now that we have had a couple of weeks to let the whole wedding thing sink in and enjoy our married life, we just wanted to send you a massive thank you! We could not have asked for a better day. It truly was perfect for us. Everyone commented on how the ceremony was so personal and different from everything they had seen before ( they also thought you were very funny)! Chris and I cannot stop talking about the day, it went so very fast and it was incredible having all our friends and family there with us.”

Emma and Chris, Married at Errol Park, 26th September 2015

“We found exactly what we needed in you; a warm and friendly man with a
a sense of humour who delivered a ceremony which mirrored our humanist values.
 By meeting up prior to the big day, walking up the aisle wasn’t as daunting because there were 2 familiar faces! I couldn’t recommend you enough!”

Jenni and Richard, Renewal of Vows, Royal Scots Club, 27th November 2015

“Starting out writing our ceremony was initially rather daunting however with your positivity, guidance and suggestions we managed to create the most perfect ceremony which was very personal to us and even better than we could have imagined! So many people commented on how lovely the ceremony was and how you managed to set the perfect celebratory tone for the day – relaxed and fun yet serious at the bits that needed to be! Thank you so much for helping us make our day so special, we loved every minute!”

Kirsten and Pablo, Married at The Mackintosh Church, 6th September 2016

We had a great day and although we were both nervous, you put us at ease and supported us through the ceremony with good humour. Everybody commented on how good the ceremony was and the personal touch it had. It was both entertaining, amusing and moving and we had lots of guests say it was the best ceremony they’d been to!’

Lisa and Chris, Married at The Norton House Hotel, 27th March 2016

Thank you so much for the important role you played in our special day. We couldn’t have been happier with the ceremony and it is something we will cherish forever. You made the ceremony so personal to us and also gave us all a few laughs during it! You were so helpful in the planning process and gave us lots of ideas to use in the ceremony whilst also encouraging us to do what we wanted. Many guests have commented on how much they enjoyed the humanist ceremony and most importantly we loved it!

Stephanie and Mark, Married at The Hub on the 16th July 2016

We would like to say that you conducted a wonderful, light hearted, and meaningful ceremony in a very unique way. Guests commented that they thought we had known you for years, the way you spoke about our love for each other, and our hopes for the future. I didn’t realise you had a side line in stand up comedy, the guests were delighted to be entertained by you as they waited patiently for me to arrive and for the formalities to begin!! Paul and I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us leading up to the day, and the advice you gave us on how to piece the ceremony together, (with the help of Brian’s book of poems (????) (sorry – i cant remember the exact name!). We couldn’t imagine choosing anyone else to marry us, and were confident when we first met you that you were the only man for the job! We have so many unforgettable memories of the day, from the relentless rain at the historical venue of Culreuch Castle, the fantastic reception, our amazing guests and of course a wonderful humanist ceremony to start off a truly memorable day, the day we became Mr and Mrs Sabatelli!

Arlene and Paul, Married at Culcreuch Castle on the 15th October 2016

Dear Brian,
We are so glad that we were able to meet you and have you be a part of our wedding day. Although at first nervous when looking for a celebrant for our big day, your brief description of yourself seemed to click perfectly with us and we were not disappointed at all along the way!
We were so glad that we were able to communicate via Skype and then to meet in person closer to the wedding when we were up in Scotland. 
You followed our brief of how we wanting our wedding to be perfectly. We asked for it to be a happy day and to avoid tears and that is exactly what we received. You made everyone laugh in all the right places and helped us to make the ceremony both meaningful to us and lighthearted enough to show our less serious sides.
The feedback from our guests was nothing short of outstanding. You were a true highlight on our wedding day. 
Thank you once again for your guidance and support in helping us to create our ideal ceremony.
“Working with Brian was so easy, his guidance in helping us to create our perfect ceremony was invaluable and as a result, we ended up with something very personal and unique to us. All the guests commented on how lovely and intimate the ceremony was, some even said it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended which meant so much to us. Brian’s warmth, fun, and easy going nature made us feel so relaxed on the day and the nerves soon went – we enjoyed every moment of it and our only wish is that we could do it all over again!”
