'Got my first booking and certificate on the same day'

"Just wanted to share my joy with you all on this lovely sunny day! This is the face of someone who became fully certified for weddings AND got their first confirmed wedding booking, on the same day! Beyond overjoyed! Thank you to the AMC, Jennifer, my INCREDIBLE mentor Alison Ann Celebrant, and everyone else on here; it’s a joy being on this journey with such inspiring (and kind) company.

"I have never been more passionate about anything else in my life. "

"I can honestly say that it has been the best learning experience of my life. Having worked in HR  I have been on many courses, but none have impacted or inspired me as much as this one. Apart from teaching you how to become a celebrant I went on a whole personal journey as well. I can honestly say I know myself better now and I am filled with the confidence that this is the right role for me to carry out. I have never been more passionate about anything else in my life.

"By the time I had completed it I already had bookings for ceremonies lined up"

I cannot recommend the Academy of Modern Celebrancy highly enough. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the course, by the time I had completed it I already had bookings for ceremonies lined up and all the tools I needed to be able to deliver them. You can do the course at your own pace, which was perfect for me as I could do it at weekends, and the support not only from Jennifer herself, but through the group calls with other students made me feel like I wasn’t doing it on my own. I am delighted I chose this route for my training.

– Vikki Harris, AMC Graduate

Jennifer Claire

So how does it work and what will life look like as a celebrant?

Hi, I'm Jennifer, CEO of AMC and a celebrant myself for 13 glorious years. Celebrancy changed my life just as much as it has all of the students that have joined this path.

It's a job that gives you something to LOVE. Something that gets you up in the morning and excites you. A passion that gives you the opportunity to support people in their time of need, and celebrate in the others.

I can't think of a profession that gives you all of this and pays you for doing something you love.

A day in the life of a celebrant? There isn't a typical one. You'll be writing ceremony scripts, meeting clients, networking with suppliers and of course, officiating ceremonies. Whether a funeral or a wedding, each giving you a sense of pride and happiness knowing you are making a difference.

One piece of advice? Stop looking and dive in. Not one celebrant will ever tell you they don't love what they do. Looking for a next step in your life where you control what you do and when you do it, where you can't wait to go to work, where work is a happy place..then the time is now.

"Forward Thinking, Modern and Fresh"

Training with the AMC was the best thing I have ever done. The course was all online so you could learn at your own pace, and you have access to so many training materials that were packed with content. The Academy is very forward thinking, modern and fresh and the community you become part of is very supportive and encouraging. You are never left on your own and are assigned a mentor to guide you through the course and give you feedback which is invaluable. I could not recommend the AMC enough!
