The cute couple above (and to the left) were wed in Poland’s first ever Humanist wedding ceremony.
Jane Bechtel is the Scottish humanist celebrant who conducted it.

Humanist Ceremonies are very rare in Poland as 90% of the population is Catholic, however interest is increasing among younger people, and it has been suggested that many of those who have left the country to work in Western Europe find rational and humanist approaches appealing.
