  1. Hey Leslie

    I hope all is well. My partner and I are getting married next year in St. Andrews and we are struggling with organising a humanist. Our friends Wendy and Findley recommended yourself however I notice you live in France now. I always have a memory of their ceremony being fun and very personal – do you ever come back over to the UK? If not is there anyone you would recommend with a similar style to yourself?

  2. Hi Leslie
    I am organising a very small wedding celebration for my Scottish cousin in the
    Pyrenees on 12 September. She is getting officially married before she comes
    and then we want to have a small ceremony for her and what you are describing on
    your web site looks perfect.
    We are in Mauleon in the Atlantic Pyrenees and wondering first of
    all are you available and secondly an idea of your charges.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
