Project Description

I love to assist people in designing their own bespoke Ceremonies; whether it be in a Hotel of your choice, Castle, or even your own home. You can be even more adventurous & decide on a romantic Beach or favourite location which is personal to you.

Edward McGough

Celebrant Edward McGough

Edward is available to conduct Wedding & Funeral Ceremonies

For 40 years +, Edward was a Registered Nurse, working in many aspects of the field. For the final 20 years in the care profession he was “Live in “ Manager of a care Home for 26 Elderly People in Midlothian. Most of the Residents over the years were from a small community which meant word of mouth was vital in its inclusion in the Village.

As an antedote to the lifting & handling of frail elderly people Edward took up Horse riding in 1985 & fairly soon fell off & broke a couple of bones in his back ! He then took up Carriage Driving, which seemed safer & soon broke his kneecap. In the 15 years of Carriage driving he undertook many Gala days, Ceremonial events & transported many an excited Bride to their weddings.

Edward has two adult children & three grandsons. He has been with his partner for 37 years and in a Civil Partnership for 11 years & looks forward to many more, being an old romantic!

Edward enjoys the humanist philosophy of The Fuze Foundation in that it offers :-

  1. Experienced professional help to organise the ceremony at the heart of your event.
  2. Complete freedom to have the ceremony you want, where & when you want.
  3. A simple fee structure which includes reasonable travel.

Edward is happy to cover the Edinburgh area, Lothian, Borders and Fife.
