The Pagan Federation (Scotland) Celebrancy Service
When planning a ceremony to mark any major life event, be it the
happiness of marriage, the blessing of a new child or the sad loss of a
loved one, it can sometimes be difficult to find just the type of ceremony,
and the celebrant you need, particularly if your spiritual path is not one
of the main religions of these Isles.
We hold a register of Celebrants who are experienced in writing and
conducting many kinds of ceremonies, including Handfasting, Legal Marriage,
Funeral, and Naming ceremonies. All our celebrants are happy to write and
conduct Pagan ceremonies that closely reflect the beliefs of those involved.
Most are trained in one or more of the main Pagan traditions, such as Druidry,
Wicca and other forms of Witchcraft, Heathenry, and Shamanism, and most are also
happy to work with more general, or eclectic, Pagan thought and symbolism, and
where appropriate to conduct Interfaith ceremonies.
If you do not hold any specific religious beliefs, but you would still like a
spiritual ceremony, we can discuss your requirements and, with your help, write
a ceremony which celebrates the event in the way you feel most appropriate. We
can also discuss your requirements for ceremonies other than those mentioned
above. Although we do not, as an organisation, provide celebrants for religious
initiation and training, we or one of our celebrants may be able to refer you on
to someone appropriate if this is what you are looking for.
If you would like to speak to our Celebrants Register Co-ordinator about
your forthcoming ceremony, please contact her directly on
firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements. While we
will endeavour to provide a Celebrant for your ceremony who best suits your
needs and location, as our numbers are limited at present we cannot
guarantee to provide someone. As all our celebrants are volunteers, they
will expect their reasonable expenses to be paid.
