About Me

Hello . . .

Hi, I am Derek McGillivray.

In my capacity as A Happy Medium, I discovered I had this amazing ablity to foresee weddings, births and so on.

As a result I was often asked to do wedding ceremonies, so I decided to train as a Civil Celebrant.

In June 2019, I completed and passed NOCN Level 3 Diploma in

I was trained in England by Civil Ceremonies Ltd who are regulated by the government body OFQUAL.

I am a deeply spiritual person and believe in the concept of unconditional love.

Love should be celebrated, and a ceremony is a great way to show that love. I created A Happy Ceremony for that reason to offer personalised ceremonies for my clients,.

My motto is “Seal your love with a ceremony and a smile”

I operate from Elgin in Moray, Scotland but prepared to travel anywhere in UK.

I am already travelling throughout Scotland and the Islands putting on shows for my work as A Happy Medium

So, now that you know a little about me, I hope you feel more at ease reaching out and sharing details about you so that I can help you with your celebration plans. I’d love to hear from you!

“Love is true when it gives you the freedom to be the perfect reflection of your real self, doing exactly all you have ever wanted to be.”

How We Work Together

I like to get to know a little about you so that I can make sure that your ceremony is peronalised to make it  unique to you .You can have as much of your own input as you wish. On your Happy Celebration day, I love to connect with you and your guests so that everyone feels a part of the day and not just a spectator to it. We work together we make it unforgettable.
