It's all about love.
Love has the power to bring us together.
Officiants generally referred to as "celebrants" are people who officiate a marriage, funeral, and other life ceremonies for those who do not want a traditional religious ceremony.
Celebrancy is a movement to provide agents to officiate at ceremonies often reserved in law to clergy officers or the courts. Today more and more people are opting for a life celebration in non-traditional styles and in non-traditional settings - parks, beaches, lakes, mountains, venues of all kinds and private homes.
In the United States, Canada and many other countries around the world, officiants and celebrants perform religious or secular celebrancy services for weddings, funerals, child namings, coming of age ceremonies, and other significant rituals which are a valuable part of our life.
An officiant's main responsibility is to receive and witness the consent of the intended spouses and to ensure the legal formalities, ensuring the validity of the marriage or civil union, are observed.
Officiant's duties and responsibilities, as well as who may be an officiant vary among jurisdictions.
