Training as a celebrant has been the next step in my journey as a storyteller, coach and leadership facilitator. I am naturally curious about people and in my role as a celebrant I will help you create a bespoke wedding ceremony, that is unique to you as a couple, building on your story for you to share with your family and friends in the setting of your choice.
I want to ensure that couples have a ceremony that is beautiful, memorable, sober where it needs to be and fun where it ought to be. I want you your family and friends to never forget this day.
I've been trained by Humanists UK and I chose them because their work and approach aligns with my beliefs and values and connects with the Human Rights Masters I completed in 2005.
People of all cultures have used ceremonies and rituals to bring people together throughout human history, to mark important events in their lives. This is an innate human need – we are social animals, we need connection and marriage is the epitome of this.
There have always been non-religious people who have believed that this life is the only life we have, that the universe is a natural phenomenon with no supernatural side, and that we can live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. They have trusted to the scientific method, evidence, and reason to discover truths about the universe and have placed human welfare and happiness at the centre of their ethical decision making.
Today, people who share these beliefs and values are called humanists and this combination of attitudes is called humanism. Humanists are really curious about people, they think for themselves and act for everybody.
A Humanist Wedding
A humanist wedding is a non-religious celebration that is welcoming, inclusive, and personally tailored to you, focusing on your love story and things that are important to you as a couple. It is conducted by a trained humanist celebrant and can include unique vows, readings, poems, music, and any rituals you choose.
