Become a Wedding and Funeral Celebrant

If you want to become a Wedding and a Funeral Celebrant, Our combined Wedding and Funeral Celebrant Training Course will enable you to create and narrate wedding and funeral ceremonies. Combining all content included in our Wedding and Funeral Celebrant Training Courses into one, you can choose which you will learn first. (You can start working in that area of celebrancy as soon as you complete each part of this course).

Celebrants create many more ceremonies than weddings, funerals, and naming ceremonies. This course option also includes the Life Events Module which gives you the choice to learn about different kinds of ceremonies rather than a standard expectation of learning about naming ceremonies as other celebrant training companies include as standard.

Naming ceremonies aren’t of interest to all celebrants, so why learn about something you may not want to offer? (Of of course if you want to learn how to write naming ceremonies, we will teach you) Further information on this module can be found further down this page.

This course also includes information on starting and marketing your business, enabling you to start working straight away as a Wedding and Funeral Celebrant.

Our course materials are regularly updated and have all been written by us at Choice Celebrant Training. We do not use video teaching,
we do not use Celebrant Trainer ceremonies, or ceremony scripted templates as examples or ceremonies nor do we teach courses others have written, or write courses for other training companies. All courses are written by us without any AI generated content.

Life Events

Our Wedding and Funeral Celebrant Training Course includes our Life Events Celebrant Training. This will train and guide you into the creation and marketing of different ceremonies, to which there are many. As with all of our courses, you choose what style of ceremonies you want to learn.

This course has two different options.
You can choose from one of the following:

Couple’s Ceremonies
Engagement
Commitment
Anniversary

Ceremonies for Individuals
Naming (baby, teen, or adult)
Divorce/separation
Retirement

Family Ceremonies
Baby welcoming
Family unity ceremonies
Event marking ceremony

Other Life Events
Business ceremonies
Personal ceremonies
Milestone ceremonies

(Choices of the above subjects of ceremonies are to be discussed and made during the course)

Choose one of these categories of ceremonies and you will design and create that specific ceremony on the course. The other two in that category will be discussed and advised of as part of this module. 

This module includes information and learning about one unity ceremony of your choosing.

After previously training with Ellie a few years ago with another celebrant training company, I tracked her down to train as a wedding celebrant. My course has been well designed and I look forward to every training session. There is so much information and I am enjoying my training. I highly recommend Choice Celebrant Training’
