What is a celebrant and why should you choose one?
A celebrant is a person who officiates or performs a ceremony of any kind.
A humanist Celebrant operates within the guidelines of humanism while an Independent celebrant (me) is fully inclusive of other faiths, religions etc.
Why you should consider a celebrant -
🔸A celebrant will be able to build a relationship with you before the big day.
🔸They spend time learning about you as a couple or family and write a ceremony based exactly on who you are and what YOU want.
🔸 Your ceremony can be held anywhere you like. A meadow (like the one in this picture), the beach or even your front garden. You are not limited to having the ceremony in a registered building.
🔸This also allows venues that aren’t registered to host ceremonies. #winwin
🔸You are not limited by a registrars time and the ceremony can be as long and as inclusive as you like.
The only thing to note is that a celebrant cannot perform the legally binding aspect of a wedding. This will need to be done at the registry office with two witnesses on a day and time of your choosing.
