I first came across humanism at my Dad's funeral - after which I was inspired to join the Humanist Society. I have been a registered celebrant since January 2007 and it is by far the most enjoyable and rewarding job I have ever done.
Its such a privilege being a celebrant and I love helping people create a meaningful ceremony to mark the special and significant events in their lives.
It's such a privilege conducting weddings and I always get a thrill pronouncing couples 'husband and wife'
I love being able to give couples a personal and meaningful ceremony on a day they will hopefully always remember.
A naming ceremony is such a lovely event for the whole family. It is an opportunity for parents to affirm their commitment to their child(ren) in front of family and friends and gives them the opportunity to choose supporting adults (the non religious equivalent of godparents).
A humanist funeral should reflect the life and personality of the person who has died in a fitting and meaningful way. Conducting funerals is perhaps the most rewarding part of my job and I enjoy the challenges associated with them.
A humanist funeral should be a celebration of a person's life and a tribute to their achievements. It feels hugely satisfying when friends and family members approach me after I have conducted a funeral and comment on how well I captured the person's character and personality.
