Humanist ceremonies are totally secular, which means they’re not religious at all. Instead, they’re all about creating a ceremony that perfectly fits the beliefs and values of the people involved.
These ceremonies are led by super talented Humanist Officiants (like Shael!) who are qualified and accredited to make the ceremony perfect for you. They’ll work with you to create a totally unique and personalized ceremony that fits your vibe.
Humanist ceremonies are all about making the occasion special and meaningful. You might hear some recitations, poems, music, or even some personal stories that reflect the people involved. Plus, the ceremony can be held in all sorts of places, like a backyard, bar, or haunted house – the possibilities are endless!
If you want, you can add in some special symbolic gestures to make the ceremony even more meaningful. Maybe you’ll light some candles or plant a tree to mark the occasion.
The best part about humanist ceremonies is that they can include elements from all sorts of different cultures. So, if you want to incorporate some more secular traditions from your family or background, you totally can.
Lastly, humanist ceremonies are all about inclusivity and respect. It doesn’t matter what your background is, what you believe, or who you love – everyone is welcome to participate and be a part of the ceremony.
