What is a Celebrant?
"A professional celebrant is a qualified and experienced person who helps individuals, couples, families and communities create and perform ceremonies that recognise and celebrate significant events, milestones, and values" - Hans Hill
So that being said, a celebrant not only creates and performs wedding ceremonies, naming ceremonies, renewal of vow ceremonies and funeral ceremonies - but any milestone or significant event in your life!!
These could include such events or milestones such as:
♥ A retirement
♥ A birthday
♥ An engagement party
♥ Opening of a new business
♥ An Invocation - this is a ceremonial statement at the beginning of a special occasion or gathering
♥ Dedication - When work on a large project is complete and a few words are needed from someone
♥ Pet ceremonies - a short funeral or memorial
♥ Pet ceremonies - not to forget the lighthearted dog weddings, and celebration events for the birth of a litter of puppies are now occasionally held.
This list is not exhaustive, but gives you the idea and scope of the Celebrant
