Carrie and Graham's Humanist Wedding at Aberdour Castle


"Our wedding really was the best day of our lives. Everything worked out perfectly," wrote Carrie when she sent me these photos. As you can see, they make a very glamorous couple!


"In the beginning Graeme very much wanted to go abroad and get married with only immediate family. I wanted to stay at home with all our family and friends around us. I won! However throughout all the planning we very much wanted to make the day fun and keep the stress of planning to a minimum. I enjoyed every minute and I think that once Graeme gave in and actually embraced it he enjoyed it the planning too, I would do it again tomorrow".


"On the morning of our big day I was as you could imagine rather nervous. I calmed down after a class of champagne or 2 but as soon as I arrived in Aberdour my nerves kicked in again. But what made everything so much easier was that you were there to greet me and my bridesmaids. I was so glad that you were there to tell everyone where to go and what to do because by then I could barely remember my own name".



"We had so many compliments on the day as to how you conducted the ceremony. For many it was their first Humanist ceremony.  They loved that we were facing them and they all heard something in our story that they hadn't heard or known about us before. I was told that there wasn't a dry eye in the house. The ceremony really did bring everyone together and it continued into the night with a lot of fun, laughter and even more love".



"Thank you again for such a lovely start to our marriage and I'm sure the day was the start of many adventures yet to come." Thank you, Mr and Mrs Temple - I'm sure you're right!
