Humanist weddings are wonderful, sincere, fun, creative, individual…… I could go on forever!  But in all seriousness, a Humanist Wedding is dignified, unique and authentic.  I will work closely with you to create the ceremony that reflects you as a couple whether you want this to be fun and relaxed, elegant and formal or a mixture of all.

For many happy couples the whole wedding experience can seem quite daunting, where do you start? What do you have to do? How do you create your dream ceremony?  Don’t worry; I have lots of great ideas to help get you started and if you know what you want your ceremony to be like I can help make it a reality. I’ll work closely with you to create a memorable ceremony that is professional and unique.

I live in Irvine on the beautiful west coast of Scotland but I’m happy to travel. It gives me an excuse to see some of the wonderful wedding venues we have in Scotland.

What can I say about Karen that has not already been said.
From start to finish, Karen has been truly wonderful, our wedding ceremony was truly unique, relaxed and captured both our personalities down to a tee. Karen brought the ceremony to life, audience participation with our Mexican hug and we all laughed, cried and did poke fun at the groom!
The ‘Our story’ section of the ceremony was perfect and all our guests are still talking raving about it.
Thank you once again Karen
Love Shona and John

We contacted Karen in April to perform our wedding ceremony in October. She has been wonderful from start to finish enabling us to have the special day we had hoped for.
Karen guided us through all the practical parts of the ceremony advising us of paperwork required and he best time frame to work to, which made the whole process so much less stressful knowing that everything was in place and correct.
When we did meet to discuss the ceremony Karen was great, she totally understood us and our hope for an informal, fun but still very special family day. She guided us through the many options for the ceremony and vows. We decided on the Hand Fast and between us we thought that using football scarves from our home teams would be a brilliant idea (and made for one very happy football mad groom!).
Karen kept in touch and kept me calm right to the day, I had total confidence that she had everything under control and that all would be well.
And it was! Our day was fantastic, our friends and family thought the service was “just us” and one of the most personal they had ever been to (oh and the scarves went down a treat).
We cannot thank Karen enough for the wonderful service she provided, she helped to make our day all we had dreamed of.

From start to finish it was an absolute pleasure dealing with Karen. She immediately made us feel at ease. The ceremony was magical and everything we hoped for. Karen beautify turned our words and made them into vows for us which made saying them so personal. We would not have had a clue where to start writing our own so it was amazing. Karen conducted the ceremony very well and improvised appropriately. This meant that it didn’t feel overly formal. All in all we would highly recommend Karen for any future couple who wish for a personal ceremony conducted by a caring, genuine humanist with a clear and soothing voice, which also helps with the flow.

As a person Karen was very easy to talk to and we felt assured that we would not have to worry about the ceremony part. This reassurance was welcome on the day when Karen debriefed us both before the wedding.

Very happy couple Mr and Mrs Smith.

Karen officiated at our wedding last Sunday but our contact began many months ago as she wanted to know all about us as a couple and our lives. She even gave us homework! This ensured that our ceremony was as relaxed and personal as we wished it to be. Her calming influence made sure the nervous bride relaxed and enjoyed the ceremony. There was humour and a bit of audience participation which the guests all loved. She truly is a lovely lady and my husband Alan and I can’t thank her enough for giving us beautiful memories of our wedding day to remember forever.

Having read previous comments we don’t feel there’s much more to add. Right from the start Karen has been very approachable, friendly and professional. She totally put us at ease and captured exactly what we wanted from the ceremony and our day. Some people come in to your life for a reason and we believe Karen is one of them! Happily refer to her as a friend now. Thanks so much!

We both cannot praise Karen walker highly enough!! From the point of enquiry right through to our wedding day she guided us through the whole process and captured exactly what we hoped for on our special day. We were complimented so many times on the ceremony and Karen made a big impression on our guests. We came to Karen wanting a light hearted ceremony with humour and warmth which is exactly what we got! We now regard Karen as much more than a celebrant she will always now be regarded as a friend. Eternal thanks from Mr and Mrs Biggam.

Karen conducted a ceremony that was both relaxed and humorous and totally got us in the Our Story part. The guests commented on the way the ceremony felt genuine and filled with both warmth and love. The timing was just right and Karen has a lovely tone to her voice. She was supportive and encouraging throughout to the immediate wedding party so everyone was clear on their roles and the order of the service. She did an excellent job in the provision of the intimate details we had requested including the Celtic traditions of tying of the knot and passing of the Quaich. Well done and thank you Karen.

Karen, what can I say?! You were so open and friendly from the first time we met and that was reflected in our ceremony which was just fantastic! You created a relaxed and very humorous atmosphere which set us all up for the rest of the day.

The ‘Our Story’ section of the ceremony you wrote captured us perfectly, and your willingness to involve our friends in proceedings was genuine and so appreciated.

We’re off on honeymoon in a couple of days as you know, when we’re back we’ll get some cup cakes in production and come round for a visit. Many thanks.

Fantastic ceremony conducted by Karen Walker at the Piersland House Hotel, Troon. Karen captured the emotion of the day in the personalised ‘your story’ part of the ceremony. I can only say the entire ceremony was magic, from beginning to end. Our guests all commented that it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they had been guests at. The ‘Ring Warming’ and the ‘Hand Tie’ were a delight. Alan and I had the most wonderful day. Thank you Karen seems such a small expression of thanks.

Karen you were absolutely amazing. You made the service so enjoyable for myself, Craig and my guests with your energy and ability to make everyone feel relaxed.

From meeting with you for the first time, we both knew you were the perfect person to marry us. We always felt comfortable and confident you would deliver the perfect ceremony on the day and we couldn’t have asked for any more.

Many of my guests have commented to me how lovely you were and your personality shown through during the ceremony giving humour to lighten the mood when needed.

Cannot rate you highly enough Karen you were fantastic and made our day so special.
Thank you.
Craig & Gemma

Teen and I had Karen do our wedding service at our home, Karen’s attention to detail and what we wanted was excellent, which reflected in a very relaxed day.
The whole service was so personal to us, Karen certainly got it so perfect for us. We can’t thank you enough.
