Where awesome people

become awesome celebrants

Celebrant training for the real world


Hey there!

We're Claire and Natasha from the Celebrants Collective, and yes we really do laugh this much!

We help awesome people (like you!) to become awesome celebrants. It's really as simple as that.

With almost twenty years of running our celebrant businesses between us, we've taken everything we know, everything we've learnt from our successes and our failures and we've wrapped them all up into an A-star celebrant training course for you.

We take your personality and existing skills, blend in our expertise, guidance, and knowledge, and show you how to become the awesome celebrant that you can't wait to be. 

We'll give you the tools to create and run a business that you love, and we'll support you every step of the way, from training to launch, right through to your first ceremonies and other celebrant milestones.

Sound good?

do you want TO HAVE THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD?

We're pretty sure that we don't need to sell you on the fact that being a celebrant is pretty amazing. You wouldn't be reading this otherwise! But just in case you've any doubts, it is!


To be able to help couples celebrate one of the most awesome days of their lives, to be surrounded by love and happiness, at the most amazing venues which you get to call your office, what's not to love? Not to mention the freedom and satisfaction that comes from running your own business. It's a win-win situation, right?


So here you are with heaps of excitement and a huge dose of the celebrant bug, but now you need the celebrant know-how and celebrant training to match, and that's where we come in! 


The Celebrants Collective Wedding Celebrant Training Course will give you what you need and more, to help you kick start your new career as a wedding celebrant, and set you up with all you need to have for the best job in the world.

Be your own boss

There is nothing quite like working for yourself. Running a business that you love and shaping your own life in its own way, nothing beats it.

Work with fab couples

Getting to help amazing couples to celebrate their wedding in exactly they want to is an absolute joy and privilege. We're so lucky!

Learn from Leaders

Be safe in the hands of two experienced celebrants and celebrant educators at the top of their game.

About Claire

Claire is a multi-award winning celebrant based in East Sussex, UK, where when she's not leading ceremonies for her amazing couples, she trains awesome people to become awesome celebrants. In 2018, Claire became the first ever celebrant to lead a wedding ceremony live on ITV's This Morning's, Wedding of the Year! Watch her in action here!

My life changed when I became a celebrant and, since then, I’ve been passionate about helping other people to follow their celebrancy dreams, too. How lucky am I that I get to teach others how to do something that I absolutely love doing? Yep, that lucky!

About Natasha

Natasha has been a sought-after wedding celebrant for over a decade, leading ceremonies for celebrities, VIPs and every awesome human being in between. From her adopted hometown in Malaga, Spain, she oversees the Celebrants Collective, as well as running her own team of wedding associates in the Costa del Sol.

There's so much more to being a celebrant than being a celebrant. Being a successful celebrant is not only about being ace at what you do but also ace at running the business that enables you to do what you do!  I'm super passionate about helping celebrants to achieve this balance.

What our students and trainees say about us

Claire is an exceptional trainer. She holds space expertly. Her teaching style is fun, laid back, relatable and relaxed yet also direct, motivational, and professional. She doesn't just offer incredible teaching but also actively encourages you to explore what being a celebrant feels like from your own perspective and creates a safe environment for this testing out of ideas to happen with ease.

I enjoyed every minute of my wedding training course. I literally couldn't wait for the next training session to begin. The layout of the course was organised and jam packed with top-tips and solutions to many of the problems you are likely to encounter as a new celebrant. The only bad part of the course was the end, but on a happy note, as a member of the Celebrants Collective, I still have to hand numerous resources such as webinars, blogs etc. If that isn't enough there are the private and public facebook groups that you can join, where you are safe to raise your concerns or worries and receive a whole load of support from celebrants all over the world. I would definitely recommend The Celebrants Collective.

Natasha’s input has been invaluable to me, helping to nurture and shape the way I work as a celebrant. She’s so intuitive and supportive as well as being a font of knowledge. Everything she says is bang on the nail. She’s a life-changer and a game-changer for me.

’Put very simply, I couldn’t have asked for anything better to prepare me for becoming a celebrant than being coached and trained by Claire. At a very basic level, Claire is hugely passionate about her work, extremely experienced and a fantastic source of knowledge. Beyond that, Claire brings the theory to life by generously sharing stories of her ceremonies and humbly illustrating where she got it wrong to make the training real. Claire devotes the time and space to enable every pupil to unlock how they can become a brilliant celebrant themselves and genuinely cares about their learning experience. It’s easy to see why so many of Claire’s pupils go on to have very successful careers as celebrants.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Celebrants Collective?

The Celebrants Collective is many things, but first and foremost it's a community where celebrants come together for education, support, advice and buddyship. From training to celebrant development, we help celebrants to be the best that they can be. With members from the UK, all over Europe, the USA and Canada, our collective embrace spans far and wide. To learn more about the Collective, visit our main site here.

What qualification do your courses give?

Celebrants who train with us and who successfully complete our courses and all the required tasks and assignments, will become certified Celebrants Collective Celebrants. Our certified celebrants then graduate to our Members HQ where their membership entitles them to become Accredited Celebrants, which requires them to continue their development with us and to be mentored and guided by us.

Will you being offering funeral training?

Yes we will! We expect our funeral course to be finalised in early spring 2021. And the good news is, if you do your wedding celebrant training with us you'll get 50% off of our funeral course.

Will you have in-person training and events?

Yes! It’s our plan to have in-person celebrant training around Europe, but due to the restrictions with Covid-19, we will be waiting until the time is right to launch this side of our training. And along with members of our Members HQ we look forward to when we can hold our in-person workshops, celebrant events and celebrant retreat again!

Does it matter where I'm based in the world?

Our online celebrant training can be studied by anyone, regardless of where they are in the world. Our course teaches the practice of being a celebrant and the art of ceremony, which are universal skills that can be taught to any individual who wishes to learn how to be a celebrant or who is already working as a celebrant or officiant and would love to improve their practice and know-how. We 've had trainees from France, Spain, the UK and the USA. As long as you have time, computer and internet, we'll be able to share our knowledge and wisdoms with you.
