Fuze Ceremonies

Make your wedding day personal and meaningful for both of you.

Since 2012, Fuze Ceremonies, a not-for-profit Humanist organisation, has been conducting legal humanist weddings across the length and breadth of Scotland and is authorised by the Registrar General of Scotland to legally solemnise marriages.

Fuze wedding celebrants are SQA Diploma trained, fully insured, disclosure checked and rated five stars on Trustpilot with over 1600 reviews.

Fuze Ceremonies prides itself on working closely with couples to compose and conduct highly personal and meaningful ceremonies. No ceremony is the same because no two couples are the same.

Your ceremony is one of the most important parts of any wedding day and Fuze Ceremonies believe that you should be able to have a ceremony that reflects you and your partner’s wishes. Your ceremony can be as long or as short as you wish, and you’re only bound by your imagination.

Couples who choose a humanist wedding ceremony conducted by Fuze are supporting the organisation’s ongoing giveback to good causes, as a portion from the fee is placed in the Fuze Foundation pot, which in turn, is donated to the Beatson Cancer Charity and Alzheimer Scotland, the partner charities of Fuze Ceremonies.
