If you read my last blog post, I introduced myself and explained, why I became a celebrant, what exactly a celebrant is, and how we are all unique in our service provision.  I explained why it is important to spend time finding the right celebrant for you, for the type of celebration you want.


This post is to invite you to join my friend and fellow celebrant, Dinah and I to our new monthly podcast.  The podcast is called Ask A Celebrant and its us having an informal chat, and answering questions sent in by you.

Meanwhile, here is a link to Dinah’s blog, where she tells you her journey to being the celebrant she is today; ‘grateful’…   It’s a great read.


What type of thing do we get asked?

(Honestly, hot chocolates, together in the local cafes are not the only reason we decided to work together!)

Me, Berni B, The Alternative Celebrant Dinah Liversidge : The Grateful Celebrant

What are the benefits of using a celebrant? (Ans: too many to go into here – wait for the podcast!)

What does it cost to use a celebrant?  (Ans: this varies widely depending on the type of service, length and content – a reputable celebrant will be very open about their fees)

Where and when is this fab podcast!?

We will be there on 28th of each month answering anything you want as best we can.  We will even be inviting guests to join us and talk about their speciality.

You will see how different we both are in what we offer.  And that is the beauty of the celebrant network. We may all be independent, but we all work in partnership and support each other, to help you, the customer, find the perfect celebrant for you.
