What our members say
Wedding Celebrant, Greece
I wouldn't have a celebrant business I believe if it wasn't for the Celebrants Collective. In the beginning, when you are starting out, it's a highly affordable way of access to priceless resources, reams of useful information and, thanks to the many wise and wonderful celebrants in the group, the benefit of very learned and experienced celebrants. All this combined with the never ending support, kindness and know-how. If you are a celebrant and you are not a part of the collective, you are missing out BIG TIME!
Wedding Celebrant, UK
The Celebrants Collective has given me the confidence to approach this job as a 'real' business, introducing me to marketing strategies and business planning in a way that feels organic and part of my work, as opposed to an uncomfortable extra. I also have a network of incredibly friendly folks who are so willing to offer advice, support and encouragement and access to a heap of professional development resources that are encouraging me to expand my own knowledge and up the value of the service I offer.
Wedding Celebrant, Ireland
Being a member has been just amazing, and totally surpassed all of my expectations. I have been able to fine tune my processes and also add elements to my website that I was previously struggling with. I am also much more organised and have set manageable and achievable goals due to the support and resources from the Celebrants Collective.
Wedding Celebrant, Germany
I love being part of a community that supports Celebrants around Europe and beyond. The Celebrants Collective has always been on point. Natasha freely shares her experience, skills and warm positivity, as well as a balanced and safe environment through the groups. She has been innovative and creative and always finds the right words to explain encourage or assist.
who we are
Leading the way
Natasha founded the Celebrants Collective in 2017 as a way to unite celebrants under a collective umbrella to learn, thrive and flourish. She's also run her own successful wedding business in beautiful Malaga, Spain since 2007. When she's not mummying and wifing, tending to her dogs or veggie patch, she loves a good Netflix box-set. And she'll probably tell you this herself but she's obsessed with Beyoncé, bows down to Michelle Obama and wants to be best friends with Oprah. Not too much to ask, right?
Powerhouses in our field
Claire is an award-winning celebrant and trainer who gets ridiculously excited about creating rites of passage ceremonies that tell great stories and reflect the people they’re about. As co-director of awesomeness and celebrant training for the Celebrants Collective, she also gets ridiculously excited about training people to do the best job in the world. (Actually, it would be fair to say that Claire has a tendency to get ridiculously excited about all sorts of things, including chocolate, Kung-Fu, 80s pop music and a well-brewed cup of tea, but that’s another story…)
Claire is lucky enough to live by the seaside in sunny Worthing, on the south coast of England, with the gorgeous Team Bradford and their ‘fragrant’ rescue dog, Stanley.
