Why Being A Celebrant Is So Rewarding


    Simply put, being a celebrant is one of the most rewarding career paths you can pursue. Every single day of work is a celebration of love, commitment and life. Whether you’re conducting a ceremony, or putting in the hard work to prepare for one, there won’t be a day gone by where you don’t feel fulfilled and happy about the role you’re pursuing. 

    With that being said, some days may be difficult than others. You could go from conducting a beautiful wedding, to mourning the life of a valued family member. However, the underlying foundation of fulfilment does not change. The role you play is incredibly important, and is critical to the event you are conducting. 

    Weddings are a true celebration of love and commitment and require you to read the vows and become a true storyteller for the event. On the other hand, funerals require you to officiate ceremonies and memorials. Both are extremely rewarding in their own way, leaving you with the knowledge you’ve left a true mark on people’s lives. 

    The ability to deeply interact with families and their friends is something which isn’t easy to find in the world of work. That’s what makes the career of celebrancy so unique. Let’s face it, where else do you have the opportunity to create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime? 

    This amazing career can be carried out as a full-time position, or a part time role around another career. It can also be a step into semi-retirement, acting as the perfect gateway away from the traditional 9-5. Similarly with carers and parents, many pursue their passion of celebrancy around their own schedule. That’s another great thing, the flexibility adds to the rewarding foundation of the business. 

    Did we mention the opportunity to travel too? Becoming a celebrant allows you to fill your diary wherever you find the work. That means your roles could take you on trips all over the country and beyond, giving you the chance to explore as well as work! Not only that, but you’ll find some of the country’s best wedding venues should you be successful.
