Welcome to Agnostic Scotland where we offer uniquely beautiful ceremonies for all life transitions.

We are delighted to offer legal Marriage and Civil Partnership ceremonies across Scotland as well as non-legal ceremonies such as Vow Renewals, Naming ceremonies, Memorials, Funerals and Life Celebrations.

We celebrate love in all its beautiful forms. We love diversity and delight in the humanity and individuality of the people we work with, and the connection between them. We work hard to consider how we can be welcoming, accessible, and inclusive to all people. 

As Agnostics, we welcome people of all faiths and none, those who consider themselves spiritual but not religious, and those who perhaps don’t know what they believe. We are proud to offer an additional choice to couples, families and communities when it comes to choosing how and where they wish to mark the momentous occasions in their lives. 

We offer a distinctly individual service. We take the time to really get to know you and will craft a ceremony for you that reflects and respects your own beliefs, values and wishes. Every ceremony is different and it feels great as a celebrant to say “Yes! Let’s do what you want to do… it is your ceremony!” 

As a not-for-profit organisation, we reinvest all profits into our Sustainability Fund. Through this fund, we seek to support and create meaningful connections with causes, projects and organisations that align with our values.

We strive to give back to communities. For every ceremony we conduct, we plant a tree through the Scottish rewilding project, Trees for Life. 

Celebrants fulfil an important role in Scotland in offering a personalised, supportive and tailored approach to ceremony provision and we support the need for a fair pay approach for celebrants which values their time and skills. Through our Life Celebrancy Training we seek to mentor new celebrants and provide training in all aspects of celebrancy. It is our hope that we will, one day, have representation in all local authority areas. 

It is our aim to be a beacon of warmth, inclusivity, and good practice across Scotland. 

Weddings, Life Partnership Ceremonies, Vow Renewals and Reaffirmations


Our Marriage and Civil Partnership Ceremonies celebrate you as a couple. From the telling of your story to the exchange of vows, from the inclusion of rituals to the declaration of commitment, your ceremony will joyfully reflect your own unique personalities and your journey so far. 

Celebration of Life, Funeral and Memorial Ceremonies

Our Celebration of Life, Memorial and Funeral Ceremonies are lovingly crafted by our memorialists to help you recall and celebrate time spent with your person.

Naming, Welcoming and Family Celebration Ceremonies

Our Naming and Family Ceremonies are pure joy… reflecting the character of the small but mighty people involved. 

How do you want to celebrate?

Ceremonies can be funny-sweet, deeply meaningful, make-you-weep-while-you-laugh hilarious, heart-achingly poignant, timeless and grand, sincere and serious, gentle and thoughtful. They can take place in grand hotels or historic castles, on remote beaches or windswept hilltops, in gorgeous gardens, or your own home.
