What is a humanist wedding?

What is a non-religious humanist wedding? Wouldn’t it be great to start your married life with a ceremony that really means something? Tell your friends and family what your relationship means to you. Let them know why you’re getting married. Tell them what you love about each other. What makes you laugh? What were your best shared experiences?

Many people who aren’t religious are looking for a wedding that is more flexible. They want something more personal than a civil or register office ceremony.

A humanist non-religious wedding ceremony gives you the opportunity to marry where you want. You can marry when you want and how you want. There’s no set script. It’s too personal an occasion for that. Instead, you can tailor your wedding to meet your particular requirements. You can set the tone that’s right for you and choose your own words and music.

Humanist weddings are perfect for couples who would like:

  • A meaningful ceremony that isn’t religious
  • An outdoor ceremony or a location that isn’t licensed for civil weddings
  • The flexibility to create a personal ceremony that is unique to them
  • To celebrate their marriage with family and friends but without legally registering it – perhaps they have already undertaken the formalities overseas, for example.
