Celebrant Training in 2024

If you’ve been considering training as a Heart-led Celebrant, we are taking bookings for 2024. We’re now quite booked through Winter and Spring, with limited places available in Summer. As our training is on a one-to-one basis, places are booked at mutually convenient times and on a first-come-first-served basis.

Our training is highly sought after because of

  • our real-life extensive celebrant experience
  • one-to-one tutoring
  • comprehensive training
  • practical training
  • shadowing opportunities
  • seven-day a week post-certification support

Choose from a Certificate in Celebrancy or a Diploma in Advanced Celebrancy and Ritual.

Veronika and Paul Robinson are experts in their field/s. As your tutor, Paul offers comprehensive one-to-one voice and presentation coaching that will enable you to present your ceremonies in a way which will touch the hearts of the people present.

Veronika has a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing from the University of Cumbria, and has been a celebrant for 28 years. She’s the author of dozens of books, including several popular books for celebrants, such as:

  • Write That Eulogy: the art and craft of biographical storytelling
  • The Successful Celebrant
  • The Blessingway
  • Funeral Celebrant Ceremony Planner
  • Wedding Celebrant Ceremony Planner


2024 book titles include:

  • Funerals for Children
  • The Celebrant’s Guide to The Five Elements
  • The Discrimination-free Celebrant
  • Mindfulness for Celebrants

All these books are included in your celebrant-training materials, as well as back issues of The Celebrant magazine.


Heart-led Celebrants is a boutique celebrant training school in the North of England offering one-to-one training either face to face in Cumbria or via Zoom. You will receive quality, comprehensive training, and life-long support. Veronika is available to Heart-led Celebrants seven days a week. There is no other celebrant-training-course tutor in the  UK who offers this level of care to students or graduates.


Amongst the many celebrants we’ve trained over the years, we’ve also (re)trained people who originally did their celebrant training elsewhere, and we can comfortably say that no other course is as comprehensive, thorough (at every level), and rigorous as the training here at Heart-led Celebrants.

We deliver quality training so that you step into your new career fully supported, confident and capable.
