Celebrating love, life and milestones


Want a unique celebrant-led ceremony?

Imagine a ceremony that is personal and honest and truly reflects your personality or relationship; one that allows you to tell your friends and family how grateful you are for their support, tell your partner all the ways you love them in your own words or make promises to your child(ren) with your nearest and dearest as witnesses.

Your ceremony, your way.

What is a Humanist Ceremony?

It’s hard trying to describe a typical humanist ceremony as, by definition, each one is completely unique.


There are no rules, and celebrants can give as much or as little help as is needed to create a truly fitting occasion.

That said, all humanist ceremonies are:

  • Unique: There is no set script to follow. Our celebrants will work with you and write a bespoke ceremony.

  • Non-religious: Our ceremonies focus on what matters in ‘the one life we have’; our relationships with those we love and what we value.

  • Personal: Focus is on the person or couple that the ceremony is all about, their personality and individuality.

  • Tailored: We’ll make sure the mood, content and tone are exactly what you want.

  • CollaborativeOur role is to work with you to create a ceremony that is everything you want it to be, and more.

  • Flexible: It’s for you to decide where and when the ceremony is to be held. Let us know and we’ll be there.

  • Sincere: There is nothing that has to be included or words that have to be said. Every word will be true to you and your outlook.

  • Approved: You’ll have the opportunity to read and feedback on some or all of the draft of the ceremony if you wish. It’s your ceremony – you decide when it’s just right.

Feedback from A and M 2/5/20 

"Lisa is so warm, caring and friendly. She listens closely to what you want, makes suggestions and gives advice so that you can make the best decisions for you....She’s so experienced and inspiring."

Lisa was fantastic, a very warm and friendly character.  We hadn’t been able to meet before the ceremony yet Lisa was still able to deliver it to exactly what I wanted.

Lisa, thank you for such a lovely naming ceremony on Sunday, it was just what we wanted.

Lisa was wonderful and made our celebration perfect.
From day one she made us feel comfortable and confident that the ceremony would be what we wanted. The information she sent us and ideas she put forward really met our vision for the day.
