/ Anyone in Scotland Ordained to perform a wee wedding?
My lovely fiancee and I have decided to get married on 29 June this year. Really really struggling to find someone to do the business - she of a Catholic upbringing, me of a divorced Proddy one, neither practicing and spending more time of a Sunday climbing rather than worshipping.
Canny find anyone suitable to do the deed and marry us, for better or worse ;-) and don't really want the registry option - can anyone on these pages help, or suggest a solution to the problem?
We don't know any Jesuit priests (was mentioned as a possibility)!!!
Try this chap, Ashley Cummins: http://www.allsoulsinvergowrie.org/page.php?page_id=4
Thanks, but whilst full of doubts we are both not yet ready to embrace Humanism. Doubtful theists probably sums us up, and both families are very into their faith, so we are hoping to keep them 'happy' !!
Cheers for the suggestion though!
Should've just run away and done it abroad on a beach somewhere.....
It's quite possible to be a humanist as well as a theist, you know. I am.
Thanks Tim - do you know this chappie??
> It's quite possible to be a humanist as well as a theist, you know. I am.
I'm an RE Teacher by profession and very open to many different ideas, though coming from a broadly raving Evangelical background!
Its very much a case of put on the spot to find someone who will carry out our ceremony I am struggling to come up with people!!
Yeah, he's my parish priest. Liberal episcopalian. Teaches RE at the High School of Dundee because we his parishioners can't afford to pay him ourselves. Lovely guy. And if you look round our website, and can get past the cheesy headers <shudders>, you'll notice it's a rather beautiful church. I don't know whether Dundee's at all convenient for you and the lady, of course... but I flatter myself we do a darn good wedding.
Pm me if you like, or just email Ashley.
Great - trouble is we've booked Glasgow Uni Chapel for the ceremony - does he travel?? More than happy to pay the going rate!!
Something nice about a fellow RE teacher doing the business ;-)
Ah, you probably want a Weegie piskie then. But you could ask him. (Even if he says he's not up for it himself, I bet he has contacts in Glesca.)
Oh, and of course I should have said-- all the best to you both for a brilliant wedding and an even better marriage :-)
Tim, many thanks - I shall drop him a wee message and see what the chat is, even a contact in Glesga would be a start, we are really struggling to get this sorted and given its one of the few items on the TO DO list I am responsible for I intend to get on it!
No problem. Have a good one, in fact have an epically brilliant one :-)
We were at a weddin there in summer, awesome place !! - think the uni chaplain did it... Was cool...
Cool - thanks for all the input guys, looking into a number of leads!
Now, anyone know someone with a green beetle I can hire for the wedding car??!! Think she is gonna scream if I produce our camper van with white ribbons on it ;-(
Hi Suilven - if you're still on the hunt for someone in the Glasgow area, I could put you in touch with a couple of folk who could do you a thoughtful service that would be sensitive to the different traditions in the room.
Send me a message if you're still on the hunt.
