Human beings are ceremonial creatures; we like to come together to mark the important moments in our lives in a way that's personal, meaningful, and memorable.
A humanist or secular celebrant (also called an officiant) can help you plan and write your ceremony, show attendees what is required of them, and guide you through your special or difficult time in a way that's caring and entirely focused on the people involved.
A humanist celebrant is perfect for those who hold no religious beliefs or for families who have different beliefs and want a neutral space to be together and mark precious moments in a peaceful way.
