Welcome to Humanist Ceremonies
Major life events deserve memorable and meaningful ceremonies. And they need to be special, so we shape them for and with the people and families involved. Humanist Ceremonies bring human values to life.
Our non-religious ceremonies are warm, welcoming, and inclusive. Because we are all human. And we all have stories. Our ceremonies represent something essential and timeless – the shared values and narratives that connect us all.
Our network of trained and accredited non-religious celebrants has been trusted with marking life’s most significant moments with authenticity and care since 1896.
We’re part of Humanists UK, a registered charity bringing non-religious people together to be happier and more fulfilled in the one life we have and work together for a more tolerant, better society.
Humanist Ceremonies give people the opportunity to make thoughtful, positive choices about life’s most significant moments and experience how their personal stories reflect timeless human values.
