In the present day, many people feel that traditional religious ceremonies do not adequately capture their views of life. Perhaps these people are not religious, or perhaps the values by which they live their lives are drawn from the human realm: from ethical or philosophical traditions, or even poetry and literature. In keeping with Humanism’s role as a belief-system that centers around valuing human life and welfare, Humanist ceremonies enable such people to celebrate important occasions like weddings, funerals, and births in a way that conforms to their own life views. As such, Humanist ceremonies form a meaningful and enriching way of marking significant life events. Humanist ceremonies are conducted by carefully selected Humanist celebrant, who are well versed in the planning and enactment of Humanist weddings and funerals.
