Agnostic Scotland

Add to this grove
This grove is being planted in honour of the families whose ceremonies we conduct. Every time a couple are married, exchange vows, or express their life commitment to one another we will plant a tree to celebrate their union. When babies are welcomed by family and friends, and formally given their chosen name we will plant a tree to celebrate their arrival. When families gather to celebrate the life of a loved one who has died we will plant a tree in their memory. As celebrants we are privileged to help individuals and families celebrate and navigate the important transitions in their lives. Planting a grove of trees in support of this important rewilding project is a perfect way for us to both show our appreciation to all the incredible individuals, families and communities we are lucky enough to cross paths with as celebrants, and to express our respect and gratitude to the natural world that sustains us all.

We are donating 20 trees to mark the year of our marriage next year in 2020. Onie from Agnostic Scotland will be our celebrant and are only too happy to support the grove that she has started. Trees and forests act as a fabulous metaphor for life long love. Nowhere is this captured better than in the words of Louis De Bernieres; Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. We had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.
