As an authorised celebrant of the Humanist Society of Scotland, I am able to conduct legal marriages in Scotland, and only in Scotland. While our marriages are legal and valid all around the world, they're only legal and valid if conducted on Scottish soil.
In France, all marriages are secular and have been since just apres la Revolution de 1792. So if my happy couple are still set on having a humanist wedding ceremony as well as their civil one, it will have to be a blessing - the same situation as existed in Scotland before humanist weddings became legal in June 2005.
Comment dire "ironic, huh?" en francais?
