Many people discover they have a humanist outlook and they didn’t realise it!

If you are non-religious and have empathy and compassion in your life, if you look to science, reason and try to live an ethical and meaningful life, then you’ll find that you share a humanist philosophy. Your wedding ceremony will be a personal, and meaningful way to celebrate your marriage without the constraints of a religious ceremony.

humanist wedding ceremony is entirely centred on the people involved. Each ceremony is designed and written for the couple, their family and friends, so no each ceremony is as unique as the couple it celebrates. Everything about it is determined by you – your wedding script is relevant, personal and genuine to you to create your happy day.

Humanism is an ethical lifestyle. 

We try to be good, decent human beings because it’s the right thing to do. We don’t need praise or reward and we aim to celebrate this life in the best way that we can and to help others to have a happy life too.  

Humanism celebrates diversity and equality, and values the relationships we have with other people – in part by marking key life events such as birth, marriage, and death.

It is important that everyone will feel welcome.  

Nearly every ceremony has guests with different faiths and none. I feel passionately that everyone present should feel comfortable and involved and enjoy the day. 

We can make space in your ceremony to have a moment of reflection. Some people may use this time to pray if they wish. A humanist ceremony celebrates you, the couple, and everyone gathered is there for that very reason. A humanist ceremony includes everyone. 

Guests often comment that the occasion is much more moving and meaningful than other weddings they have attended because it is so personal.
