Do UK Wedding Celebrants Need Training?


    A career as a Celebrant is a hugely rewarding one, filled to the brim with creativity and joy, but getting started on the right path can be overwhelming. We’ve got you. Start here, and find out all you need to know.

    How do I become a Wedding Celebrant in the UK?

    While no official Wedding Celebrant qualifications are needed to become a Celebrant, training with a supportive organisation will give you a strong foundation to get started with your business.

    Take time to check out Wedding Celebrant websites, as well as the different Celebrant training on offer. Find something that fits your goals, your lifestyle and budget, and make sure you’re joining a community that will support you long-term. A Wedding Celebrant qualification can really elevate you in the industry, as well as reassuring your couples that you know what you’re doing!

    How much can I earn as a Celebrant in the UK?

    Modern Celebrancy is a vibrant and viable full-time career option, and self-employment can be a really empowering way of working.

    As a Celebrant, you are in control; you choose how much you put into your business, how many ceremonies you take on, and how many hours you put into your work. Generally, a Wedding Celebrant can expect to charge between £500 and £1,500 a ceremony, and you’ll be able to work out what price best fits your business, your style, and your location.

    There are also a number of ways to diversify your income; collaborations, talks and workshops, for example. You may also choose to train as a Funeral Celebrant, which will expand booking opportunities and consequently, what you earn.
