Regrets: I’ve had a few…

If you follow my blog, you’ll know I was delighted to be nominated, and then shortlisted for the Vows Awards a couple of weeks ago: that was entirely thanks to the many couples who voted for me to show their appreciation for the ceremonies that I conducted for them.

I have been a celebrant for twelve years now, and the Honorary Chaplain to the University of Edinburgh for five. 

I regard celebrancy as a vocation, and I take great pride in the ceremonies I conduct, particularly the funerals, which are the most important part of my work. 

However my nomination has been called into question, so on ethical grounds and to avoid further politicisation, I feel my only course of action is to withdraw.

Once again, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me.
