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.

It can include unique vows, readings, poems, music, and any rituals you choose, such as handfasting, symbolic knot-tying, or lighting a unity candle.

It’s different from a civil or register office ceremony in that it’s entirely personalised to the couple and it can take place anywhere that a couple feels is significant to them. A humanist wedding is entirely focused on you, your love, and your story.

Your humanist wedding celebrant will spend time getting to know you so that on the day, they can tell the story of your relationship in an authentic and meaningful way.

A humanist wedding can be a small, intimate, traditional affair or a huge, elaborate, fun-filled celebration. The choice is yours!

Your wedding could take place in a castle, a hotel, a park, a garden, or a luxury rustic barn.

If you’d rather have a Best Woman than a Best Man, or one of each, just say the word. Do you want to involve your pets or children in the ceremony somehow? No problem. You’re in control. It’s your wedding, your way.

Humanist celebrants are committed to helping you create a personal, meaningful wedding that tells your story in a way that no other kind of wedding ceremony can.
