Our Celebrants
Who or what is a celebrant? Although we use the word ourselves, we’re aware that the term ‘celebrant’ isn’t particularly well known or understood (although it is quite common in some countries, such as Australia). A ‘celebrant’ is someone who is involved with creating, writing and conducting a ceremony. A ‘humanist celebrant’ is someone who writes and conducts humanist or non-religious ceremonies. We used to call to these people ‘officiants’ and some still prefer that term. We are also sometime known as ‘humanist ministers’. But what we call ourselves isn’t nearly as important as what we do.
