You can take wedding or funeral celebrant training, or both. Many of us started with the idea that we would focus on just one area of Celebrant work. However, once we’ve worked with a couple or a family, and formed a relationship of trust, they often ask us to help them mark other occasions. Having the right training to become their Family Celebrant means a life-long working partnership.
We’ve created one-to-one training for Celebrants to respond to your learning style
We all learn in different ways. Providing our training on a one-to-one basis so we can adapt to what works best for you. Whether you prefer to learn by taking notes or taking part, we can work that way. As all the training is written by Dinah, she can accommodate changes to help you get more from the training.
Being a Celebrant is highly rewarding
It is a huge privilege to be an Independent Celebrant. We mark moments in people’s life story. Together, we help express their love, their grief, their surprise and delight. This career can feel like a life purpose and our training is designed to support you as you create a business to be proud of.
Working with a family at a time of loss and grief requires active listening, empathy, compassion and an ability to protect your own mental wellness. We will include ways that you can support families and also support yourself. Your mental health as a Funeral Celebrant will always be a top priority in our work together.
Helping a couple to create a ceremony to celebrate their commitment to each other is a joyful experience. You will need exceptional listening skills, patience, vision and a desire to help others shine. If you’re looking for a chance to be in the spotlight, this is not the career for you. You have to help them take their place in the spotlight, your role is one of support.
We look forward to hearing from you and starting on this new part of your journey together.
