Life Ceremonies


Could I please ask that you read this page in conjunction with the other pages that cover the Funeral Training Course as some of the details such as The 5 Good Reasons, What you need, Location etc also apply to this course.

Because of its importance, the Life Ceremonies Course, covering Wedding, Civil Partnership, Renewal of Vows and Naming ceremonies is run separately from the Funeral Course. However, let me assure you that this course is nonetheless produced, written and led by me personally.

For some considerable time now people have been using alternatives from either a minister or registrar to perform these very important milestone ceremonies in family life and to give the ceremony itself a much more personal and inspiring feeling. 

Professional Celebrants have been able to provide that alternative and are now in demand more than ever. 

This course will give you a solid foundation on which to begin and develop your vocation as a Family Celebrant. These ceremonies are what I would call the happy ceremonies of life because they are full of love, joy, happiness, enjoyment and celebration all rolled in to one and over the duration of the 3 day course you will discover how to successfully conduct all of these different ceremonies which will then lead you on to establish yourself as a Professional Family Celebrant.


At the satisfactory completion of the course, you will be presented with certification which confirms your training knowledge, proficiency and experience that you have gained on the course.
