Meet the Team

Celebrant Coaching and Training Academy

The team at the Celebrant Coaching and Training Academy are here to support you as you develop and grow your business as an Independent Celebrant. We’re excited that the team is growing and the first area where this was vital was in Inclusion and Diversity. Ella brings so much to the role and we are developing new training for 2024 that will focus on this area.

Who are we and what do you need to know?
