For your special day whether it’s your wedding, renewal of vows or a naming ceremony you will be considering the venue, the flowers and your guest list. Your ceremony will set the tone for the rest of the day and I’ll be at the heart of it with warmth and smiles.
You may already have an idea of your dream ceremony or you may like some guidance. We can chat about the many options available to you and create your perfect ceremony.
A humanist ceremony is a fantastic choice. There are no limitations or rules that we have to stick too! I’ll listen to your ideas and work with you to create a beautifully, bespoke ceremony that reflects you as a couple, delivered to the highest standard. The process will be a lot of fun and together we can make sure that your memories of your perfect ceremony will be wonderful
The great thing about a humanist wedding ceremony is that you can have it anywhere and at any time too. You can keep to tradition or be as creative as you like. This means your wedding will be even more unique and special to you.
Humanist weddings in Northern Ireland are legally recognised. Unlike a civil ceremony the venue doesn’t need to be licensed. This means you can hold your perfect ceremony almost anywhere. From a woodland glade, beside a lake, or a beach themed wedding. If you have always dreamed of marrying in a castle, now you can! If you are looking for a simple ceremony in your own home or garden we can do that too. The choice is yours!
As an experienced celebrant, I’m here to guide you every step of the way to make sure your ceremony is just how you want it. Ping me a message, pick up the phone or drop me an email. Why settle for anything less? Jump in, you’ll love it!
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.
A 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.
