UK Society of Celebrants Newsletter | Mar / Apr 2015

Welcome to you all - Spring is most certainly in the air and we are so pleased that so many of you are getting busier and busier as we approach "silly season" for every busy Civil Celebrant.

Spring Cleaning

We implore all of our Members to review their photographs and copy on both  their Member Profile pages & Websites. Once reviewed, contact your Tutor / Mentor to implement the changes and to kickstart a new social media campaign for you.

Those of you with websites may benefit from opening an account with AddThis.Once opened, you can take advantage of improving your social media engagement and presence for FREE. If you need help, just sign up for a free account here, then contact your Tutor / Mentor - it will take just a few minutes to boost your websites potential. Social Media revision also available for all members - just ask!

Have you visited the UKSOC Shop yet?

The UKSOC Shop is now gaining some traction with our Bespoke Folders, Parchments and Celebrant Kits flying out of the door. If you feel that  there are additional products that we should supply, please feel free to let us know.

Remember that all our Members will receive their orders FREE of delivery costs. Visit the UKSOC Shop NOW!

New Courses

Wedding PlannerWe anticipate being able to introduce more course choices soon, aimed particularly at our Family Celebrant Members. The new courses will be a basic Wedding Planning Course and a Toastmaster Course (for Wedding Celebrants).

Although both of the new courses will be freestanding, the Wedding Planning Course will be FREE to our Members and the Toastmaster Course will be discounted by 35% to Members too.

Toastmaster Training
Please contact your nominated Tutors / Mentors for further information. Links to New Courses will be published at the end of May.


We have been receiving great feedback with regard to the effectiveness of the new format Interview Checklists, Anatomy's & Formatting documents. Many of you are saving hours in prep time and your FD's, Crem & Burial Ground Staff  / Managers, Venues & Planning Staff are experiencing a New Look Professional Class of Celebrants. Keep up the good work.

UKSOC trained Members not trained in the use of the above documents can be updated for FREE via their Mentors - just get in touch to arrange and download the documents from Member Resources.

Well that's it - short and sweet for this newsletter. Thanks for reading this far. Be Safe, Be Well, Be Busy.

PS. On a personal note, many thanks to everyone at and in UKSOC for your support and good wishes over the last 12 months - a humbling and inspiring experience.  I'm back now and looking forward to returning to Tutoring & Mentoring soon and maybe a few ceremonies too.
