Wedding Celebrant

 What is a Wedding Celebrant?

There are a multitude of other options if you do not want to go the traditional route.

You have heard of Priests and Registrars, but what about Celebrants? There are several different types of celebrant to choose from, including Independent, Civil or Humanist Celebrants.

Independent Celebrants can take on a vastly different role to that of a Priest or Registrar. They help you to shape your wedding into something entirely different and very personal to you both as a couple.

WHY WOULD I CHOOSE A WEDDING CELEBRANT OVER A REGISTRAR?

Choosing an Independent Celebrant means you have complete flexibility when deciding upon your venue, as you are not restricted to only licensed venues as with the local council registrars; you can choose anywhere, anytime. With so many hidden gems, stunning private estates, beautiful outdoor locations, unlicensed and licensed venues out there, a Celebrant offers you the chance to have your wedding in any location you find and love.

A Celebrant will also personalise your ceremony to suit your style, and you will get to know your Celebrant over the course of planning your wedding so you have a personal, meaningful connection for the most important day of your life.  Your Celebrant will create a unique ceremony from scratch, one that truly reflects you as a couple.

In the UK, Local Registrars are bound by their legal format and there are limitations to the content of the service they can provide. They have set times, set locations, and restrictions on what they can and cannot say or do. It is more than likely you will also not know the person delivering the most important words to you as a couple either. 

Lastly Independent Celebrants offer an affordable alternative. You no longer have to search purely for wedding venues that are licensed; you may have a favourite restaurant, farm, beach or even holiday home that hosts large parties, the options are endless with a Celebrant.
