Kirsty and Rob's Humanist Wedding at West on the Green


Its great when couples really embrace the freedom of expression that a humanist wedding offers. Robert and Kirsty totally got that idea, and I loved the way they told their story at their winter wedding at West on the Green


"When Robert and Kirsty met, it quickly became clear that Robert had - and continues to have - some fairly terrible habits. Luckily, Kirsty likes a challenge, and Robert has often proven himself to be very, very challenging..."



After a year of living together Robert finally convinced Kirsty to get a kitten. Before she knew it, she discovered that he had reserved two. 


James and Georgie quickly became part of the family and although sceptical at first, Kirsty’s favourite sound now is hearing Robert giggling with his cats.

It really was 'a winter wedding!'


Kirsty sensibly chose a pair of Hunter wellies to make the short journey from the limo to the venue.




Robert's sister Susan gave us a reading called 'Union', by Robert Fulghum.


Then Kirsty and Robert spoke their vows and exchanged rings.




After they signed the marriage schedule, Kirsty's brother John gave us a last reading of 'The Art of a Good Marriage' by Wilfred Arlan Peterson before the wedding party headed out onto Glasgow Green to brave the Beast from the East!


I was very pleased to get this message today, along with these great photos by Simon Lees.




We can't thank you enough for your help with building and delivering our ceremony and how well it went on the day. 


Everyone commented on how lovely and how special and suited to ourselves it was which was all down to you guidance. You really did put us both at ease as well as set the scene for what was the best day of our lives!


Again we can't thank you enough for the work put in beforehand and for helping us through the process. It really did make the whole ceremony very special to us and we won't forget this for a very long time (hopefully forever!)


Thank you again for helping to make our big day extra special to us both.

Best wishes, Rob and Kirsty 

Mr and Mrs Boab I should be thanking you! It was a real joy working with you, and I hope that your wedding will continue to inspire you and your families and friends for years to come. Thanks for these kind words, and thanks again to Simon Lees for these very atmospheric photos.

I love it when owls are part of ceremonies! I just had to remind myself that  'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone...
