Elizabeth Cass-Kanti Wedding Celebrant, Greece

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.

Keli Tomlin, Wedding Celebrant, UK Wedding Celebrant, UK

I joined the Celebrants Collective initially as a new starter celebrant looking for hints, tips and advice. Through the friendship, support and sound advice it has given me much more confidence, without feeling pressured to deliver. It's enabled me to take what I need and apply it to my celebrant business in my own way. The webinars are great, down to earth, honest and very well put together, with some brilliant guest speakers. I love it!
