What is a Humanist Wedding Ceremony?

A humanist wedding day is a non-religious celebration

that reflects  you have as a couple. 

Many of us who aren’t religious are looking for

a wedding that is more personal and flexible. 

Choose your own words, music and rituals. 

We will work with you to create your special day.

A Humanist celebration is created with you in mind, to enjoy, and to make it a day you and your friends and family will always remember.

​No two humanist wedding ceremonies are the same.

Each wedding is as unique as you are!

We are Mary Lou and Janni.

We are each based in Belfast (and happy to travel throughout Northern Ireland or further afield upon request). 

As registered humanist celebrants, we make sure that each wedding is tailored to meet your requirements.

You set the tone that’s just right for you.

We love weddings and we are happy to answer your questions.

About Us

Where It All Started

When you love weddings, how do you feed your addiction?
Well, becoming a celebrant is one solution!
Applying knowledge and skills acquired over careers spent working closely with people and enabling them to address their most personal concerns, we now support couples to complete the day they want with a ceremony that includes the elements that matter most. This can be so many things; laughter, joy, serenity, serious commitment, gentle happiness.
It seems as if all of our working lives we have been gathering the right attributes for this role.  We bring flair and creativity to designing every wedding script, celebrating each couple’s unique love story.
