Wedding Ceremony

A Scottish wedding celebrant who can create the day of your dreams

Hi, I am Isabel Addison a Scottish wedding celebrant based in Aberdeenshire. I believe your wedding should be the happiest day of your life. But often, it becomes a source of stress.

Going down the traditional route and working with a registrar comes with restrictions. Registrars can only perform ceremonies in approved venues – and sometimes, the function suite doesn’t fit what you are looking for.

Couple this with impersonal services, confusion over who can officiate at a wedding, and differing opinions on how your day should look, and you can be left overwhelmed.

Let’s start your marriage on the right foot and tell your love story the right way!

As your Aberdeenshire wedding celebrant, every word I choose will be from the heart. We will take the time to get to know each other to share your beautiful journey with your loved ones.

Included in your ceremony:
  • The writing of your love story (including poems and/or readings)
  • Support writing your vows (if you need it)
  • Choreography
  • Rituals
  • A printed copy of your ceremony

Where you choose to include rituals, there is the option for you to supply your own props such as handfasting cords/ribbons, or I can source the materials for an additional charge. I do hold a handfasting workshop where you can create your own binding for an additional cost.

Please Note: Due to current legislation, I cannot legally marry you. As you do with a birth or death, you will need to go to the Registry Office to register your marriage, either before or after your ceremony.

Why choose me as your Scottish wedding celebrant

Want to free yourself from the shackles of tradition?

As a non-religious Celebrant, I have no belief system affiliation so I can align with whatever your faith or belief system is if you have one.

So if you’re looking for an alternative to a religious wedding, you have come to the right place. Your ceremony will be performed with your best interests in mind, in a location of your choosing.

Interested in working with a Pagan celebrant to bring authentic rituals into your ceremony? I can help with that too!

I’m also a qualified Shamanic and Reiki practitioner. So, if you have any rituals that are meaningful to your relationship, let’s build them into your celebration to add more meaning to your day. Or let’s create one instead!

I will never dictate what you should or shouldn’t do

This is your day, so your ceremony needs to be all about you! All I will ever do is provide support, guidance, and suggestions to make your day extra special.

My favourite type of wedding is a festival-style celebration incorporating meaningful rituals including family and friends. Outdoor ceremonies are perfect – but being in Scotland, the weather can be unpredictable. A “Plan B” is always a good idea!

I’ve been in your shoes…

I recently got married and decided to ignore what everyone thought I should do, to focus on what we wanted to do.

A weight fell off my shoulders after I decided to ignore traditional expectations.

The result? A wedding festival in our garden. My husband and I sourced the suppliers ourselves and literally got our hands dirty preparing the garden and field.

We still get comments like: “The wedding of the century – including mine!”  “Can we do it again?”

You deserve this for your wedding ceremony too. The overriding emotion I felt about my wedding was pure excitement. You should feel the same about yours!

For a wedding celebrant in Scotland who will make your day unforgettable, you can count on me.

Please get in touch with me Isabel Addison, for the moments that matter to you, you can rely on me.
