Nik & Becky's humanist wedding at Pollokshields Burgh Hall




About 4 years, ago, I married Bryan and Jen Ross at Dundas castle, where among the guests were Becky and Nikhil who loved the ceremony so much they decided to ask me to marry them earlier this summer. 



As they told me when we first met ten months beforehand, they were planning to have a slightly unusual wedding, with an Indian and Scottish mix, and I can still remember the wonderful smell that greeted me when I arrived at the venue, where the wedding breakfast was being prepared. I don't think I've ever felt so hungry and on reflection, I should probably have asked for a cairry oot!



When they got back from their diving honeymoon, Becky sent me this lovely note.



We just wanted to say thank you SO much for being our celebrant, you really helped us make our day the success it was.



We've had amazing comments and lovely cards from our family and friends saying how much fun they had during the ceremony, how personal it was and the most fun wedding they've ever been to!  



A lot of that is down to your guidance in making our day about us and doing it our way!  



The whole day felt so special but especially the ceremony we wrote with your help.  We are loving married life and will never forget the beginning of it all! :)  



Here are a few pictures of the fun we had, hope you like them!  I did - and if you like them too, you can contact their Manchester based photographer, Matt Wagster, here



If it wasn't for your suggestion to have our ceremony facing our guests, I wouldn't have my most favourite picture of Nik's face as he saw me enter the hall!  


I will always remember walking up the aisle being able to see his face all the way and shaking with excitement!

It's a very special moment - and I'm glad Becky's Uncle Alan caught it on his camera. Becky herself talks about how it made her feel on Any Other Wedding.

I was also most impressed by the short clip Becky and Nik sent me from their wedding video. It was made by Cherry Tree Films, who are based in Edinburgh, and as a former producer and director myself, I thought they did a particularly excellent job!
