There are thousands and thousands of celebrants worldwide doing this meaningful work every single day and working with lots of couples and families.
Yet, for every person who knows what a celebrant is, there are so many others who don’t. Strange but true!
But the tide is really turning and celebrancy is beginning to creep into everyday conversations and into more and more people’s vocabulary.
The more we (the celebrant industry) make a noise about who we are and what we do, the more people hear about us, recognise us and understand what we do.
Celebrants make a HUGE, positive difference to how people commemorate life’s events, and so it’s important that we can help those who need our help, as well as those who don’t yet know that they might need our help!
And this is why when it comes to our celebrant training we don’t just train our trainees to be excellent celebrants but we also train them to become fantastic ambassadors for the celebrant profession.
This is why we're so passionate about welcoming people from all different types of backgrounds and experiences into celebrancy, so that they can serve the diverse communities that they live in.
This is what helps to keep the industry alive. People seeing brilliant celebrants at work, who go on to use those celebrants for their own special occasions and/or who go on to become celebrants themselves. It's a glorious cycle that we love being a part of.
And this is why we’re more than just an organisation that trains awesome people to become celebrants. We are a proactive voice of the celebrant industry too.
We don’t only support and nurture our own celebrants but ALL celebrants. We use our power and platform to demand high standards for celebrants, recognition of celebrants and support and guidance for celebrants too.
We run celebrant events and workshops. We host a celebrant podcast. We support and campaign for celebrants as a whole. We're all in!
In a nutshell, we’ve got your back and we’re here to support your journey into celebrancy and beyond. Not just in becoming a celebrant, but being one too, and everything that comes with it.
So are you ready to make a difference as a celebrant? Your community needs YOU!
