What makes a good wedding celebrant?
A good celebrant needs empathy, expertise, experience and imagination as well as a good command of language to be able to develop the right ceremony for you. Richard has all of these qualities.
What makes a good wedding ceremony?
Your wedding ceremony should be the most meaningful part of your important day. It should
- fully acknowledge you both as individuals
- celebrate who you are as a couple
- be written in a style and with language you are comfortable with
- reflect your personalities
- declare your common aspirations
- state publicly your commitment to each other
as well as express everyone’s hopes for your future life together.
British-born and educated, Richard is equally as fluent in Italian as in English, and has advanced French and German. He is also happy to accommodate other languages within his ceremonies, and has already organised wedding celebrations partly in Polish, Russian, Turkish and Norwegian. About half of his ceremonies are bilingual.
He is accredited by Humanism UK (with whom he initially trained), and by Cerimonie Uniche in Italy - for whom he has been a principal celebrant trainer since 2014. He has written extensively on humanist ceremonies in Italian, and several of his officiant colleagues here on WeddingWire were his students.
