"Probably the most comprehensive & cost effective celebrant training provider you're likely to find"

The dress code for this training is casual. This training is interactive and relies on active participation. We want you to feel comfortable, but please be aware that a group photo and individual photos with the trainer will be taken on the last day for your personal use. (Please inform us if you do not want your photo taken) If you prefer to use a laptop for your writing, it is recommended but not mandatory to bring your own for the presentation work.

On the second day, you will be assigned the task of writing a wedding ceremony as homework. However, if you prefer, you may choose to handwrite your presentation. Since there will be homework, many participants choose to stay in local accommodations near our training venues. It is essential that you attend all sessions in order to receive official certification. Once we receive your registration, we will send you a confirmation email containing additional details.
In England, Scotland and Wales, only Registrars and designated religious clergy & officiants are legally allowed to handle the paperwork for marriage documents. This means that the legal part of a wedding ceremony is separate from the Wedding Celebration Ceremony. Couples usually visit their local Register Office to complete the paperwork, often a day or two before the celebration. They typically dress casually and without any guests. It is recommended that they don't exchange rings before the Registrar. Most wedding guests are unaware that the legal aspect has already been completed and are pleasantly surprised by the personal and meaningful celebrant-led service.

After completing the course, I felt motivated and excited, as well as equipped with practical knowledge and readiness for a career in Celebrancy. APC provides exceptional post-course support, willingly sharing their expertise and experience with sincere empathy and understanding. I wholeheartedly endorse this course.

Our training will result in sharp shifts in your confidence.

And enable you to create and deliver outstanding ceremonies that are truly memorable.

I did my research and APC had some great reviews – and they didn’t fail to deliver. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted by Stuart with a great big smile and a warm welcome.

Our group was a full course and we all got on superbly well! Stuart’s approach was personable, patient and engaging. Nothing was too much trouble for him. As well as group feedback, we had the opportunity for one to one feedback too which was hugely beneficial. I have no doubt that Stuart would be an inspirational mentor.

His ability to relate to situations is second to none and I found him a pleasure to learn from. I highly recommend APC as a credible and reliable training provider.
