About Us

Welcome to the United Kingdom Society of Celebrants

We are a forward thinking professional body that actively promotes and supports our members in their service provision and are at the forefront of developing and implementing professional standards and the provision of quality celebrant training.

What do celebrants do?
Our civil celebrants provide a truly bespoke service to their clients, by working with them, their families, friends and others our celebrants will write and deliver the ceremony their clients want, where and when they want it.

Say No to standard ceremonies at churches and registry offices where they just substitute names in a pre-set service.

Say Yes to bespoke, memorable, meaningful, personal and inclusive ceremonies at a location of your choice.

Celebrant Training
We have developed a series of celebrant training courses for prospective and practicing civil celebrants. Our celebrant training courses equip candidates with all they need to embark on a rewarding career as an independent civil celebrant specialising in officiating at one or all of the following; wedding ceremonies, civil partnership ceremonies, vow renewal ceremonies, funeral, interment , memorial ceremonies & baby / child naming ceremonies.

Several training options are used to deliver our celebrant training courses in order to give candidates the most choice available:

    Distance / Online Learning   (most popular)
    Group Training   (3 people maximum)
    Personal Tuition.

All our celebrant training courses have been written and are delivered by practicing, experienced civil celebrants with formal teaching qualifications. We offer three formal celebrant training courses for prospective celebrants:

    Certificate in Family Celebrancy
