What’s a Celebrant?

Wonder what a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant does and how they’re different from an officiant? Check out this helpful article from  Wedding Wire.

Celebrants are trained professionals who believe in the power and effectiveness of ceremony and ritual to serve basic needs of society and the individual.

The Celebrant’s mission is to help the client create a ceremony that reflects his or her beliefs, philosophy of life, and personality.

The Celebrant comes to the table with no agenda; no preconceived notion of what the ceremony should or must look like. Instead, through careful interviewing, the Celebrant elicits what is meaningful for each client.

Read the Code of Ethics Certified Life-Cycle Celebrants adhere to.
