FAQ’s

Why should I have a humanist ceremony?

A humanist wedding is perfect for you if you’re looking for a non-religious ceremony that is more personal and creative than going to the registry office. I write each ceremony individually for you. I will tell your own love story. I will include any funny anecdotes, readings, and songs that you and/or I can choose to make your ceremony exceptional. Another advantage is that you can have your ceremony wherever you want – at home, on the beach or up a mountain.

Is a humanist ceremony legal?

Humanist ceremonies are legally recognised in Scotland and the Channel Islands, but not yet in England, Wales or Northern Ireland. However this doesn’t make them any less special! Couples can easily go to their local registrar’s office to sort out the legalities if they want their marriage to have legal status, either before or after the wedding. Most registry offices have cheap slots mid-week for this. Contact your local office for more information.

I’m not a humanist, can I still have a humanist ceremony?

You might find that as you’re a decent human being, your values are probably the same as humanist’s values even if you’re not an official member. But you don’t need to be a humanist to have a humanist ceremony. A humanist ceremony is open to anyone who is seeking a personalised, meaningful and non-religious ceremony.
