Neil Dutta at Angelic Diamonds, a UK wedding jewellery specialist, explores why humanist weddings have seen an increase in popularity in recent years. With official guidance looking to change in the not too distant future, giving celebrants more legal power to actually marry couples - removing the need for a pre- or post-blessing registry office date - here at County Wedding Magazine HQ we think this is a trend that will continue to soar.

Why celebrants are perfect for intimate weddings
As a result of COVID-19, many couples have decided to opt for a small intimate wedding. Given the freedom that a celebrant wedding ceremony offers, it's the ideal option for a small and personal service. Before deciding on a celebrant, think about what you want. Small and intimate can mean different things to different people, so make some decisions or if you're not sure, discuss options with your celebrant. They will want to create a bespoke ceremony for you, so the more information you can provide the better. When choosing your celebrant, it's important that you connect. I always suggest an initial face-to-face or virtual meeting for this reason.

How to make your ceremony fun and memorable
Your wedding ceremony is typically the first time you will be in front of all your family and friends, so it's important that it feels like the most authentic representation of who you are as a couple. One way to do this is through your music choices. For example, if you're into rock or rap, incorporating these genres into your service can show off some of the things that make you both special. There are many ways to incorporate fun elements into your big day, from dramatic entrances to games and activities for guests during the cocktail hour.

The role and benefits of a celebrant
A celebrant is someone who has the skills and experience to create a bespoke wedding ceremony, just for you and you alone. Unlike more traditional approaches, celebrants focus on what is special to you, with no restrictions on things such as location, content or timing. They are not a legal registrar, and couples tend to do the legal bit a day or two beforehand, freeing them up to have their ceremony whenever and wherever they wish. If you're attracted by a once in a lifetime experience that reflects what is important to you, then you should book a celebrant.
