Aziza & Peter's Humanist Wedding at The Hub

Peter and Aziza had a great story to tell. 



There can't be many times that a bunch of Australian girls meet up with a clan of Scots guys at The Snowbombing Festival in Austria, but they did, and their romantic story went on from there all the way to the snows of Wanaka in NZ which was where they realised that 
"happiness is only real when shared".


Their wedding was a very moving affair, in all sorts of ways. 
Their friend Kirsten read us a bit of Rainer Maria Rilke 


Jamie gave us a verse from our own national bard


And then Aziza and Peter spoke their vows to each other from cards that I held at the shoulder of the person opposite, which is always very emotional.


Before we had the exchange of rings, we had to have an exchange of tissues!


I got a lovely card from them just the other day


Thanks for your love and support. Everyone spoke highly of you and the ceremony.


Having you as our celebrant was the best decision we ever made.
Love Aziza & Peter


Best decision but one, surely! 
Thanks again for asking, Peter and Aziza. 
It was a joy xxx

My thanks to Patrick and Lindsay of Edinburgh Photographic for these very atmospheric shots

Fiona and Gavin's Humanist Wedding at the Ghillie Dhu

Not every love story is romantic, but I think that's a good thing! Fiona and Gavin first met in the thoroughly unromantic sett...
