  1. Fiona and Gavin Wedding Date:
    From the moment we met Susan we were completely at ease and knew that she would be the perfect fit for our wedding. Susan is warm and welcoming and kept us organised throughout the whole process! We knew that we were in safe hands and she helped us to create our wonderful, personal wedding ceremony. All our guests commented on the intimate and relaxed atmosphere that Susan helped to create and we were both incredibly happy with how our big day went! Thank you so much Susan.
  2. Maria & Phil Portway Wedding Date:
    There was never a doubt in our minds that we were going to have anything other than a humanist ceremony. We both value the humanist ethos and it reflected more of who we are as individuals and as a couple. Susan came recommended and we couldn't have been happier with our choice to have her as our celebrant. She is extremely warm, supportive and was good at guiding us in writing our ceremony. We found the task of writing our own ceremony a bit daunting at first but Susan's gentle encouragement and downright loveliness made it so much easier. In the end we are extremely happy to have done our ceremony this way, it becomes so personal and truly resonates with your guests who know and love you. On the actual day we would not have wanted to be without Susan! Our ceremony was on a windy beach in Scotland and Susan made sure everything ran smoothly; from telling us what needed done, thinking of backup plans in case of bad weather etc, keeping in touch with ushers and maid of honour, and most importantly: made sure all the legalities were in place which is extremely useful when you haven't a clue what to do! She did all this with her relaxed mannerism and made us feel so comfortable through the whole process but especially on the day. We look back on our day with such happiness and love, wanting to do it all over again, and again, and again! Our friends and family all spoke how beautiful the ceremony was and how happy they were; there was hardly a dry eye on the beach on that blissful day. Warmest wishes, Maria & Phil
  3. Ailsa Roger Wedding Date:
    We were delighted to have Susan as the celebrant for our wedding. It was important for us that although we were not having a religious ceremony that the act of getting married was still a "ceremony" and not merely a legal act. Susan helped us to find the perfect mix of a personal and intimate ceremony with a few laughs mixed in. On the day she made us feel at ease and we recieved multiple compliments from our guests about how lovely they found the ceremony. During the preperations we had an extra challenge as we had to plan from abroad. For Susan this wasn't an issue, she was very flexible and supportive. We were able to deal with a lot of the details via Skype and E-Mail. She also gave us tips is how we could encorporate two languages within our ceremony so that all the guests felt involved. We absolutely loved our ceremony and our day. We know it wouldn't have been quite the same if we hadn't had Susan involved. Thank you so much Susan! We highly recommend Susan to anyone looking for a humanist celebrant. Ailsa & Sebastian
  4. Fiona Thomson Wedding Date:
    Susan was great from our initial meeting right through to our wedding day. She made us feel at ease straight away and we didn’t need to think twice about asking her to be our celebrant. She was very patient and supportive during the planning of our ceremony and she did a great job in keeping everyone calm on the day (despite me being half an hour late!) Many of our guests commented both on the lovely ceremony and how delightful Susan was. She made our day that extra bit special and we can’t thank her enough. Thanks again Fiona & Jordan
  5. Joanne & Jordan White Wedding Date:
    We got married in The Barn at Harburn in October 2018. We had always wanted a relaxed, intimate wedding that all of our guests could feel part of and as soon as we met Susan we knew that we wanted her to be our celebrant. She immediately made us feel at ease and understood exactly what we were looking for. With her help we were able to create a ceremony that told our story, and she told it beautifully to our guests. I never thought I would be able to write my own vows but Susan made it easy. She eased all of our nerves and managed to build a ceremony that was both funny and emotional, moving and heartfelt. We loved every second of our day and honestly couldn’t recommend Susan highly enough.
  6. Alix Dudman Wedding Date:
    We would like to thank Susan for helping us put together our perfect wedding ceremony. We knew we wanted a ceremony that reflected us as a couple and having a humanist ceremony allowed us to do just that. Susan was very supportive when our first venue cancelled and made the effort to travel to to our new venue! Susan guided us through the whole process and was a reassuring presence on the day. She helped us put together a ceremony that was both light-hearted and fun as well as being personal and sincere. It was so nice to involve our wedding party and family on the day. We would recommend a humanist ceremony with Susan to anyone. Many thanks. Alix and Gav
  7. Kevin Nightingale Wedding Date:
    We got married at Prestonfield House Hotel in September 2018 and we chose Susan Mathieson as our Humanist Celebrant. Upon first meeting Susan, it was immediately clear that we both wanted her to help us celebrate the biggest day of our lives. Warm, charming and confident, Susan put us both at ease and any pre-wedding jitters vanished! Susan's method of extracting your love story is really effective, she sets you 'homework' to complete way in advance of the big day. We found this exercise fun and it helped us recall many of the great memories we have made so far during our relationship. We would highly recommend choosing Susan Mathieson to make sure your big day goes without a hitch. Kevin & Lee Nightingale
  8. Prachi Horsley Wedding Date:
    Susan was simply wonderful and we really appreciated her being our Celebrant. She broke it down into digestible chunks and made the whole process enjoyable. We had a very memorable wedding ceremony which was extermely personal to us and thus relatable for all our guests present - I feel it became so much more meaningful as we had spent some valuable time together and with Susan to reflect on why we wanted to get married, what we loved about each other, our 'story', our values, how we can help each other achieve what we both desired from a permanent relationship. It certainly made me examine my feeling more closely, giving the whole decision a bit more weight, separate from all the fun parts of what a wedding brings. It was also extremely lovely to hear my partner be open and express his own views which definitely made us feel closer and have a better understanding of each other. Our guests really enjoyed the ceremony too and were very complementary about how easily Susan conducted the ceremony. They felt they became a part of our 'love story' having observed and supported us over the years. We would highly recommend a Humanist ceremony as it definitely added something extra special to our day. Susan was very much part of this wonderful emotionally intimate experience. Thanks for marrying us Susan Love Prachi & Chris
  9. James & Iren Wedding Date:
    We chose to have a humanist wedding because we loved the humanist ethos and wanted to have a ceremony to have meaning to us personally and not just a legal “procedure” One side of the family is English, and the other Norweigan with a mixture of religious and none religious people. We feel our humanist wedding respected our different cultures and and beliefs and really helped to celebrate our story. Susan is a professional and was excellent from our first call together, the home work she provided us with was far from been a chore and provided us with even more reasons why we wanted to marry and a greater understanding of our own story. After the homework Susan supported and guided us with writing our very own wedding ceremony that we don’t believe could have reflected us as a couple any better. Our family friends and guests commented on the day how wonderful a humanist wedding is, and a number even stated it was the most beautiful personal wedding they had attended. Looking back now we believe because the wedding ceremony was so meaningful we feel it really set the tone for our full day and our future lives together. Susan we cannot thank you enough for your help, caring support and effort you put into been our celebrate for our wonderful wedding. Best Regards James & Iren
