Same Gender Weddings, Civil Unions & Commitment Ceremonies

How is your Celebrant Ceremony unique?

Celebrants are Gay-Friendly people in your community who perform all types of ceremonies for same gender couples and families, including civil union and wedding ceremonies. A Wedding Celebrant certified by the Celebrant Foundation & Institute takes the time to understand your beliefs, your values, and what makes your bond unique. Your Celebrant will collaborate with you to create a ceremony that you will cherish for years to come.

In a Celebrant ceremony, you are empowered. Nothing is imposed on you. Instead, in a collaborative process, the Celebrant will guide you in choosing rituals, readings, symbols and music to fulfill your ideals and vision for your ceremony. No two Celebrant ceremonies are the same.

Celebrants are life-cycle ceremony specialists who have a solid background in the history of ritual, ceremony and the traditions of many cultures, beliefs and religions. They are experts at managing rehearsals and performing weddings. They are experienced in the art of ceremonial public speaking.

Your Celebrant will:

  • Meet with you at a no-obligation interview to discuss your vision of the ceremony
  • Listen to you to learn your personal story
  • Consult with you until the ceremony is just right
  • Rehearse with you at your venue
  • Provide you with a beautiful keepsake copy of your ceremony
