About Humanist Ceremonies
Are humanist marriages legal?
Humanist and same-sex marriages became legal in Northern Ireland in 2018 and 2020 respectively, granting hundreds of couples the right to a personal and meaningful ceremony.
Why have a humanist ceremony?
You have the freedom to choose the type of ceremony that suits you best. It can be held in a field, a museum, or a boutique hotel, and it can be an elopement or a traditional wedding ceremony. Humanist Ceremonies are known for being relaxed, flexible, easy-going, and enjoyable. The most important thing to remember is that you are the one who decides the style, structure, and format of your wedding.
During your initial consultation, we will discuss all the necessary processes and requirements. I will guide you through everything that is needed and be with you every step of the way!
General Registrar's Fees
There are other fees that are required for your legal marriage paperwork, which are paid to the General Registrar's Office (£44 per couple). For more information on this, please visit NI Direct.
The celebrant fee includes all the necessary expenses for a perfect ceremony, such as meetings, admin, ceremony research and development, travel, time, insurance, materials, and attendance on the day.
