Q. What are the benefits of having a celebrant on our special day?

A. Karen Faulkner says: A humanist celebrant conducts your non-religious wedding ceremony for you instead of a registrar. Rather than reading out a fixed script that's been heard thousands of times before, I write a bespoke ceremony that's meaningful to you. I become part of your wedding team, working together to create a ceremony as fabulous as the rest of your day!

As well as traditional ceremony elements, we include special features that make the ceremony super memorable: whether that's including family, guests, your precious pooch, or symbolising your marriage by doing something a bit different. Every element is personalised; I tell a couple's story to reflect on the adventure and I support couples to write their own vows if desired.

On the big day I'll set the tone, be a friendly face at the end of the aisle and always try to keep out of those important photos. Your ceremony doesn't need to be inside a licensed structure; it can be outside or somewhere truly special.

Celebrants are committed to making the ceremony a highlight of the day, not the bit some couples might dread!
