Imagine a ceremony that marks a major life event in a way that is personal, sincere, and honest…
Humanist Ceremonies™ is the growing network of over 300 celebrants trained and accredited by the British Humanist Association. We work across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. (In Scotland celebrants are trained by the Humanist Society Scotland.)
What we do isn’t new: we’re proud of our history and know that BHA members were conducting humanist funerals as long ago as the 1890s. Humanist ceremonies are not unusual either – we take many thousands each year but perhaps this isn’t surprising since half of Britain’s population say they are not religious, and indeed only a third of marriages in England are held in a church, for example.
Providing high-quality, personal, non-religious ceremonies is something we take very seriously. Our celebrants are thoroughly trained and quality assured. They are passionate about their work and providing people with an appropriate way to mark the most important moments in their lives.
From here you can find out what a humanist ceremony is, or read more about our three main types of ceremony: namings, weddings and funerals. You can also find out more about celebrants – the people who write and conduct our ceremonies – or see who is available in your area.
