What Is A Celebrant?
What makes a Celebrant different from any other officiant? A Celebrant is a ceremony specialist whose ceremonies are not restricted to a particular faith. Ceremonies performed by a fully certified Celebrant are custom written for each client; no two ceremonies should ever be the same.
Thoroughly educated Celebrants go through rigorous professional training to perform ceremonies that mark the transitional events of life and death. Obvious ones include baby blessings, funerals, memorials, and weddings but there are many transitional opportunities in our lives.
Celebrants honor the beliefs of our clients, and design our ceremonies to be inclusive and welcoming. Therefore, a truly qualified Celebrant has to be knowledgeable in world cultures, rituals and traditions.
Insist on an officiant who has a rich background in ceremony, from theory to writing to public speaking. She or he needs to be educated in all rits of passage, and understand the deeper significance of these pivitol events in our lives. Don't settle for less, and definitely don't feel embarrassed about asking for credentials.
