Love Notes

‘As a couple who don’t normally like talking to others about our feelings Andrea had a way of helping us share our love for each other in the most genuine and authentic way.’

‘From the moment we met Andrea we felt relaxed in her company. As a couple who don’t normally like talking to others about our feelings Andrea had a way of helping us share our love for each other in the most genuine and authentic way. We looked forward to our meet ups and enjoyed talking with Andrea about our wedding ceremony (and lots of other everyday things). On the day Andrea managed to capture us perfectly as a couple and our love for one another with just the right amount of humour. She clearly knew us well and delivered the ceremony with passion and an understanding of the relaxed approach we wanted on the day. We will be forever thankful to Andrea for making our wedding ceremony so personal and special.’

‘On the wedding day itself Andrea’s energy shone brightest holding us in a ceremony full of laughter, depth, and beauty.’

Andrea shines with a special energy that can’t easily be articulated. She consistently brought this energy to our meetings – virtual and in-person – in the months and weeks that preceded our wedding, helping to shape our ceremony in an unobtrusive and supportive way. These planning sessions with her and the love homework that she gave us are some of our favourite memories of the entire process. On the wedding day itself Andrea’s energy shone brightest holding us in a ceremony full of laughter, depth, and beauty. The ceremony being the first ‘event’ of the day, this truly set the bar for what was the most fantastic, memorable day we could ever have hoped for— several friends even commented that they would like Andrea to do their ceremony when they get married! Andrea was incredibly helpful and supportive providing the right amount of structure and advice to help us co-create the ceremony, while providing flexibility and space to make it our own. She understood our desire to introduce a degree of spirituality to the ceremony that would make guests of all faiths and beliefs feel welcome, while creating a ceremony that was authentic to us and our values. Andrea was even willing to help us play the music for the ceremony on her phone when our previously agreed arrangement did not work out. When we asked Andrea if we could incorporate a ritual with one of Annelise’s family heirlooms, the “arras”, Andrea took the time to research the tradition and shared ideas on how best to weave it into the ceremony so it all flowed. We feel lucky to have been able to create our ceremony with a person with such vibrancy, humour, openness, and thoughtfulness as Andrea and to have gotten to know her in this process.

Laurence and Annelise, October 2022

‘Andrea kept everything true to our values, included any special requests and made lots of amazing suggestions. All our guests still talk about how amazing she was!’

Without a doubt, Andrea made our wedding day, and the lead up to the wedding even more special than we could have imagined.
We really wanted to have a personalised ceremony that was memorable and special to us and our families. Andrea went above and beyond our expectations in making this reality.
She took the time to get to know us over multiple calls, emails and face to face meetings. We always felt so comfortable telling her our story and had such a laugh during the process.
Our ceremony was everything we wanted it to be and more. Andrea created the perfect balance of joy, happiness and our story. We could not recommend her enough. She kept everything true to our values, included any special requests and made lots of amazing suggestions. All our guests still talk about how amazing she was!
We still keep in touch too, which shows just how much she really cares. We can’t wait to catch up with her again soon!

Rachel and Laurence, July 2021

We can honestly say it was not just us that felt the palpable ‘love in the air’, but our guests also thought she was amazing.

Andrea’s ability to weave our stories together, and then relay these words in an engaging, loving and funny way really made our ceremony truly special. We are really thankful for the support and kindness she offered through the whole process. This is turn made the planning of the ceremony a joyous activity. Through her delivery and inviting, friendly nature she created a ceremony filled with love, happiness and more than a few tears. We can honestly say it was not just us that felt the palpable ‘love in the air’, but our guests also thought she was amazing. We cannot imagine a better person to have been part of our day, and would love other couples to have the same magical experience we did.

“We got to meet Andrea in person only on the day of the ceremony, and it felt like we were meeting an old, good friend.”

Andrea wrote the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremony for our elopement day. She provided us with structure and advice, therefore the whole process felt very stress free and supported. We found Andrea to be very experienced and professional, and her approach to her work is definitely sweet and personal and it all was reflected in the ceremony. We are grateful for all the Zoom sessions and your patience throughout the 2020 and into 2021, it was a long ride filled with unforeseen circumstances!

We got to meet Andrea in person only on the day of the ceremony, and it felt like we were meeting an old, good friend. The ceremony itself was so well thought-through and it perfectly encaptured our love story, we couldn’t have wished for it to be any better. We had the most amazing day and experience, thank you again Andrea, you started off our adventure as husband and wife in the best possible way!

Tommy and Diāna, married August 2021

“With Andrea’s support and patience we went from utterly clueless to totally clued up.”

To sum up Andrea in a few words, we aren’t sure how we would have got married without her! 
From our first meeting, Andrea’s knowledge and professionalism shone through and was delivered with so much warmth, kindness and genuine excitement for our big day that we were confident we were in good hands. We were amazed at the amount of time and energy she devoted to getting to know us and making sure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. No question was too silly and no ask too much – with Andrea’s support and patience we went from utterly clueless to totally clued up. We loved every second of our big day and Andrea played a huge part in making that happen. Thank you!

“Andrea made the day feel special, fun and full of smiley joy, even in the rain!”

We loved having Andrea as our wedding celebrant. It was lovely getting to know her leading up to the wedding. She remembered every detail of our conversations and our wedding ceremony was so personal, funny and unique. Andrea made the day feel special, fun and full of smiley joy, even in the rain! We would (and already have) recommend her to all our friends.

Tim and Louise, July 2021

“My partner and I had struggled to find someone who would allow us to truly personalise our wedding (which seems mad now); including religious elements from both of our families faith backgrounds and at the same time, making it an inclusive space where all were welcome.”

Andrea has the most amazing approach to her role as a celebrant. We were clueless about the entire process but she was there as the most excellent guide, supporting us with open mindedness and encouragement as we explored ideas and crafted our ceremony together.

My partner and I had struggled to find someone who would allow us to truly personalise our wedding (which seems mad now); including religious elements from both of our families faith backgrounds and at the same time, making it an inclusive space where all were welcome. Andrea provided exactly that, an entirely bespoke, meaningful and memorable experience that truly reflected us as a couple. Thanks to Andrea, we really did have the perfect ceremony for us, and family and friends on the day agreed. She is a beautiful soul with a unique talent to nurture and bring to life all the bits that matter to you and ensure your ceremony is one of a kind. 

Nicola and Anish, July 2021

When we were planning our wedding the ceremony was one of the most important elements to us.

When we were planning our wedding the ceremony was one of the most important elements to us. As we were creating the wedding we wanted, we also wanted our ceremony to reflect us as a couple and what we believed in. The beauty of it was that we added our own special elements, rituals and traditions just as we had hoped and Andrea guided us through the whole process. I would highly recommend Agnostic Scotland and Andrea to anyone who wants a ceremony that is unique, one of a kind and beautifully tailored to the individuals who are getting married. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding and celebrant xxx 

Emma and Chris, August 2021

“For us that’s what weddings should be, a participative, not spectator event!”

‘We can’t thank you enough for telling our story in such a wonderful warm, romantic, funny and engaging way. We both loved how generously you brought our friends and family into the story and along the journey. For us that’s what weddings should be, a participative and not spectator event!’

Endorsements from the very same saying how much they enjoyed it, so beautifully crafted, not an ounce of stuffiness, very personable and that extended after the ceremony too.’

Carol and Chas, married June 2021

Andrea’s work is not only about the words that represent your union on the day, but also how you want the physical space to feel.

Like so many in 2020 our wedding plans were usurped, reshaped and moulded into something brand new. Our original plan had been a 100 person ceremony with family and friends followed by a weekend of celebrations, however, that was not to be. What replaced this original plan was something more intimate and special, as Andrea likes to call it – A Micro Wedding, where the focus moved from the celebration to the ceremony. With barely a couple of week’s notice we had to put our plan in motion. Andrea took all of this in her stride and at short notice was able to adapt and create a ceremony that was unique and memorable for us. 

Before the dreaded COVID-19 came into all of our lives, we had already started the process of planning our ceremony with Andrea. The creative tasks that she gave us really helped us to tap into how we wanted our ceremony to look and feel. From exercises for us to complete both separately and together to ideas of rituals or additions to our ceremony that would never have crossed our minds – it was clear from the start that our ceremony was going to be something that truly represented us and our story. Nothing was off the table when it came to how we wanted our ceremony to look and this really made it feel like our own, this was not just an adaptation of a wedding ceremony but a personal ritual, that between us, had been created solely for us. 

When we decided that an intimate, ‘micro’ celebration was what we wanted to move forward with, Andrea adapted beautifully and made herself available for us at any time to ensure we felt prepared and comfortable with our new ceremony plan. One thing that sets Andrea apart in her work is her insistence on getting to spend time with and know you – both together as a couple but also individually. This truly came into focus when we had only two weeks to finish preparing our ceremony. 

Andrea’s work is not only about the words that represent your union on the day, but also how you want the physical space to feel. The symbolic thought behind so many of Andrea’s ideas and thoughts make your ceremony feel even more special as there is meaning behind things that no one else there will see. An intimacy to the day that is reserved just for you. 

There is no other word to use for our day apart from magical and so much of this is down to Andrea’s input. We truly couldn’t have envisioned anyone else marry us. Thank you Andrea for your thoughtfulness, wisdom and most of all for being a part of our day. 

Lots of love

“Andrea’s ceremony was so beautiful, it really made our day!” 

Sam Ezra McYoung

When we originally got in touch with Andrea we didn’t know too much about Agnostic Scotland. Andrea took the time to explain to us what Agnostic Scotland stood for, and more importantly openly discussed with us whether it was right for us as a couple.

Once we had agreed to have Andrea as our celebrant we arranged an initial face-to-face meeting in Glasgow. (The distant days before lockdown!). From the very start Andrea made us feel both calm, relaxed and welcome. 

We shared some of our story about how we met and our expectations from the wedding. Andrea was engaged and interested to hear our story, listening attentively and intrigued to hear how we fell in love. 

As the plans for our wedding developed, we met up with Andrea a few more times and shared more of our story and opened up about what was important to us as a  couple and our expectations of married life. We always looked forward to our meetings with Andrea. 

Just before lockdown kicked in Andrea also came out to visit our wedding venue in Glasgow. This was a wonderfully personal touch and it showed us how invested Andrea was in creating the most special ceremony that she could for us on our special day. 

Then lockdown started…..

Our wedding plans, originally having over 100 guests in June 2020, was no longer possible. 

We kept an ongoing dialogue with Andrea during this time over video calls, discussing our options. More importantly though, Andrea was always on hand to remind of us that we have each other and we were already in such a privileged position. 

We decided that we didn’t want to wait to get married, so we agreed to have a small ceremony on the 25thJuly 2020, in line with the Scottish Government guidelines.

The ceremony was an intimate affair with both of our immediate families attending. 

Andrea had listened carefully during all of our meetings, and had taken in all the aspects of our relationship from before we met to getting engaged and beyond. Not only that, she had taken time to speak to our family members to capture the nuances of our personalities. Her attention to detail was second to none and that came shining through in her ceremony. 

What Andrea delivered was truly special. Both Audrey and I felt that the ceremony truly captured who we are as a couple and she presented our story and our vows and future aspirations in the most truly beautiful way. 

As we embark on the next stages of our life as a married couple we will keep in touch with Andrea, as she was such a big part of the most special day of our lives. 

Robbie & Audrey Bowie Cameron, married 25th July 2020.
