Celebrate your marriage, partnership or a reaffirmation of your commitment with a Humanist wedding, partnership or reaffirmation ceremony. Humanist (non-religious) ceremonies offer the opportunity to tell your friends and family in your own way what your relationship means to you and why you are choosing to make a lifelong commitment.

You can choose to celebrate where you want, when you want and how you want. You set a tone that’s right for you and choose your own words and music.

We are fortunate to have several local, fully trained and experienced celebrants for humanist weddings. More details can be found below or on the Humanists UK website.

Nick Wyse


0780 308 0494


After a 34 year career at the BBC, I now work as a non religious celebrant for weddings and funerals, accredited by Humanists UK.

As your wedding celebrant, my aim would be to craft a bespoke ceremony with you that celebrates your mutual love as you commit yourselves in marriage before your family and friends. Your wedding day should be the happiest day of your life and I’d love to work with you to help you to make this happen.

“Nick worked so hard to make our ceremony perfect. His natural charisma meant that he was a joy for our guests to listen to, and he kept everything together seamlessly. You can tell Nick is a brilliant celebrant because he loves people and is full of kindness and encouragement, which, on the most important day of your life, means the world. Thank you, Nick, for our funny, heart-warming and completely original ceremony – we loved it!”

Helen Jeffries

I’m Helen, a Humanist celebrant based in Basingstoke, Hampshire. (I’m the one on the left.)

I love nothing more than working with families to create warm and truly welcoming ceremonies – whether you’re celebrating a new arrival or marking a new chapter in your lives together. And even if you’re still not sure whether a Humanist ceremony is right for you, please get in touch to find out more.

In short: my job is to tell your story.
Once I’ve got to know your family, and what’s most important to you, I’ll work with you to create and lead a unique ceremony.
Nothing that feels unnatural, cringy, or forced. Nothing that “has to be” included. Just personal, meaningful words and actions to mark the ways that all your lives have changed, and the people you want to be to each other in the future.

Tracy Staskevich


07881 884400


As a humanist celebrant, I work on your behalf to help you plan a ceremony that is warm, heartfelt and in keeping with the beliefs and personality of the people involved.

I live on the border of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire at the edge of the Chiltern hills and have worked in publishing and the creative industries for much of my career, as well as founding a national cancer charity over ten years ago.

I became a celebrant because of my joy of meeting new people and sharing in their stories, whether they are fabulously romantic and funny stories of love, or warm and heartfelt memories of a life well-lived. Stories and our shared life experiences are the things that bind us all together – they can bring us joy and comfort through life’s biggest moments.

“Tracy is so warm and fun – we just instantly clicked as soon as we spoke. We weren’t really sure what we wanted for our ceremony but Tracy guided us through our choices and when we first read her ceremony script we were over the moon! She had captured us perfectly and her recounting of the story of how we met had us laughing out loud (and reaching for the tissues at the soppy bits). We can’t wait to get married, just because we know we have this perfect and memorable ceremony that will involve all our guests and make everyone feel special on our day!”

Rachel Head

Your wedding day should be one of the happiest days of your life. As a Humanist wedding celebrant, it’s my job to help ensure you celebrate your wedding, your way.

A Humanist wedding is perfect for couples looking for a non-religious ceremony. And a Humanist wedding can take place anywhere, from a stately home to a waterfall!

“Rachel’s beautifully inclusive ceremony was like a big cuddle!”

“Thank you Rachel for making it our day to remember.”
