Celebrant Training Courses

So you want to be a Celebrant?

Becoming an Independent Celebrant is not a career choice for everyone. Candidates for the UK Society of Celebrants Celebrant Training Courses would benefit from having had experience speaking in public or at least have no reservations with the prospect of speaking in public. Similarly, access to and confidence in the use of a computer (to access the Internet and word processing) may be of a considerable benefit to all candidates.

We can help you to become the best celebrant you can be!


There is considerable confusion within the celebrant industry with regards to the terminology used when referring to celebrants. To alleviate this confusion we have simplified the terms below in order that anyone visiting this site is clear of our interpretation.

All the above definitions may also be prefixed with one or more of the following as is your want: Independent, Secular, Humanist, Non-denominational, Spiritual, or Atheist to name but a few.


The United Kingdom Society of Celebrants caters predominantly for “Secular Celebrants”, that is to say that religion is of little significance in our training and practice. That said, we have trained many celebrants who come from a wide range of faith backgrounds who have gone on to develop niches in specific ethnic / cultural groups.
