Being a celebrant is an intense responsibility. For the people involved a celebration is one of the most important days of their lives. Being a celebrant is for me the chance to respond to the wishes of the couple, to be able to listen and find the most important parts of their love story.
I think that our society needs to put new kinds of rituals at the centre of our lives, rituals re-invented and relevant for every story. Being a celebrant is the chance to participate in this new adventure and to create links between human beings
The training is for me a great experience. It is a complete training in what a celebration is, not only theoretically but practically through training in various theatrical techniques. Story telling, voice and presence are so important for a celebrant in order to be able to capture the attention of the audience and so to create a unique and memorable moment. The trainings of IIOC have a background in sociology that brings a deep comprehension of what is an union in our times. It s a great human adventure.
