Humanist weddings are, in a nutshell, completely unique. Each ceremony is made specifically for the couple and explores what they want from their celebration so that the couple and their guests have the best day imaginable. Humanism is a stand point that does not believe in God. The focus in both Humanism and in a Humanist wedding is that we should try to be the best people that we can be in the here and now. Humanist weddings are not yet legally binding in England, but hopefully will be soon. We can build in the legal element of the marriage through joint ventures or the this can be carried out on another day, enabling the focus to remain on the celebration of the union.
Every humanist wedding is unique but often couples ask what the process is and what to expect. It is essential that we meet a few times so that the wedding that I write for you reflects you properly. It is usual to have an initial meeting, a detailed planning meeting and a rehearsal. As well as the ceremony itself, you will recieve a presentation copy of your wedding script and certificate. Since each Humanist wedding is tailored to the couple, the process is very flexible. I generally charge £400 for these services as a guide.
