A wedding ceremony brings together many cultural influences, family dynamics, and emotional expectations, as well as logistical challenges. A Celebrant who intends to be helpful to a couple and their families and community as they prepare for this event, and to conduct a meaningful, personal, dignified and joyful ceremony, should be able to offer three things: a non-anxious presence, a set of useful resources, and a theoretical understanding of the process and their role.
This course introduces Humanist Celebrants to the process of working with couples in order to plan a wedding ceremony from a Humanist perspective.
