What is an Independent Celebrant ?
An Independent Celebrant creates and conducts non-statutory ceremonies. Each ceremony is unique and written to meet your requirements.
An Independent Celebrant differs in their approach from a Humanist as they will include some religious content with in the ceremony. For instance one of the readings may be from a religious text or a prayer, hymn or blessing may be included.
Will I be legally married if I have a Celebrant led ceremony ?
No. All ceremonies are non-statutory.
Many couples opt to undertake the legal declarations at a local Registry Office prior to their Wedding ceremony. All Registry offices offer simple marriage services in which you can complete the legal formalities.
Why choose a Celebrant led ceremony ?
Choosing a Celebrant led ceremony gives you more choice about the content to be included. It also means there are fewer restraints on time and place.
So if you wish to celebrate your event at home, in a local hall or outdoors a Celebrant led ceremony would be ideal.
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
