What is a  Humanist Wedding Ceremony? 

I'm very proud to be an accredited Humanists UK wedding celebrant, which means I'm part of a network of celebrant colleagues who have undergone rigorous training, and work to the very highest industry standards. 
 
A Humanist wedding is a non-religious wedding ceremony, centred on the love and commitment between two people and where nothing else matters - be this ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender or anything else. 
 
Of course you don’t need to be a Humanist yourself to have a Humanist wedding ceremony. In fact, the complete opposite applies with inclusivity for all regardless of faith, creed, race, gender, sexual orientation or anything else. Everyone is welcome! 
 
Many couples choose a Humanist ceremony as they want to celebrate their union in a manner that is non religious and is inclusive of all beliefs. 
 
However, non-religious doesn't mean anti-religious. Everyone is welcome at a Humanist Ceremony!  
 
Will we need to register our  
wedding for it to be official? 
 
It’s hoped that the law in England and Wales will very shortly be brought into line with Scotland and Northern Ireland where Humanist weddings have been legally recognised since 2005 (it was once again discussed in the House of Lords as recently as May 2022 and is due to have a second reading in June), however for now, you’ll also need to do the 'legal bit' at a registery office.  
 
It's a pain, and it's discriminatory (the High Court stated so in its 2020 ruling) but I can advise you on how to do this with minimum cost. 
 
Most couples who do usually get this out of the way shortly before their their Humanist ceremony, with this seen as their ‘proper wedding’, but of course you don’t need to do this at all if you don’t wish to legally register your marriage.
