Is training as a celebrant for me?
If you love weddings, getting creative, public speaking and taking the lead then this is the perfect course and profession for you. This course will cover everything you need to know to give you the fundamental knowledge of the industry as well as the practical work so you can go out and officiate ceremonies with confidence. This course will take you through every element so even if you are brand new to celebrancy, you will be guided through at your own pace.
When can I start?
As soon as you enrol, you will gain access to the course materials. You must complete each module before the next module will open up.
How long will the course take me?
You can go at your own pace with this course. This is all dependent on how much time you have to put into it. In general, we would say between 2-6 weeks.
I have no previous experience of Celebrancy or running a business, is this course for me?

Absolutely! We will start with the basics and go on from there. You’ll gain so much fundamental knowledge first that you will be ready (and excited) for each next stage.

Will i be able to legalise weddings?

Not yet! Currently in the UK, independent celebrants are unable to legally marry couples. However, there is a lot of work being done to get this changed and does not make the popularity of having a celebrant any less!

What support is offered to me?

In one word, lots! You are never left alone. Once you enrol, you will immediately gain access to Facebook ‘AMC Student Hub’ where you will gain any support you need. Plus you will start with a 1-2-1 with a member of the team and two group coaching calls during your time.

Will I receive a certificate when I’ve completed the training?
Yes, you will be certified by The Academy of Modern Celebrancy once you have completed your training. You will receive a certificate, an online badge and a physical badge to show your affiliation and course completion.
Can I shadow a celebrant on the job?

Yes, there is an opportunity to shadow a celebrant on the job! Come check our the team page for more.
