Welcome to the United Kingdom Society of Celebrants (UKSoC). We are a forward thinking Professional Body dedicated to the provision of quality Independent Celebrant services. Whether your Celebration is joyous or sad, our members will design a tailor-
made service fitting for the occasion, which may be a;
- ‘Celebration of Life’ Funeral Ceremony. In many cases those coping with bereavement are not always fully aware of the many funeral choices available. More often they gratefully accept whatever suggestions are made, not fully understanding that they could have done it differently until afterwards. Above all, it is a ceremony that reflects the wishes of the family and those of the deceased. It is a highly personal, meaningful tribute created by family / friends in consultation with a Professional Independent Celebrant.
- ‘Celebrant Wedding’ A wonderful wedding ceremony created by any one of our trained Wedding Celebrants -
spoken with warmth and feeling - delivered from the heart and all with a special meaning to couples and parents wishing to have a unique celebration.
- ‘Renewal of Vows’ To recapture your wedding day or celebrate a special anniversary by renewing your marriage vows can be romantic, magical, exciting and fun to do. You can renew your vows wherever and whenever you want and there is no limit on how many times you do so.
- ‘Baby Naming’ A naming ceremony is a lovely way of celebrating the birth of a new baby. Many couples feel that it is appropriate to have a special occasion to celebrate the birth of a baby that can be shared with their family and friends. They can also be used to celebrate adoptive children and step children becoming part of a new family.
The United Kingdom Society of Celebrants have also developed a series of Celebrant Training Courses in association with Ceremony UK, for prospective and practicing Independent Celebrants. This training will equip candidates with all they need to embark on a rewarding career as an Independent Celebrant specialising in one or all of the following; Wedding Ceremonies/ Civil Partnership Ceremonies, Funeral Ceremonies & Naming Ceremonies.

We offer three formal courses for prospective celebrants : Certificate in Family Celebrancy , Certificate in Funeral Celebrancy and the combined Certificate in Family & Funeral Celebrancy.
