Humanist Ceremonies in Northern Ireland

Humanist celebrants create and conduct a range of non-religious ceremonies for life’s key milestones – weddings, funerals, and naming ceremonies.

Our ceremonies are inclusive and welcoming to people of different beliefs and backgrounds.

Because every life is special and unique, there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to our ceremonies. Each script is written from scratch to tell a personal story.

Whether you’d like a ceremony that is large or small, formal or informal, traditional or alternative, our highly trained celebrants in Northern Ireland will be happy to help.
