How come I’ve never heard the term before?

Celebrancy has grown in popularity these past few decades as people have begun to seek alternative and non-religious ceremonial options outside traditional houses of worship. Its earlier incarnation included a civil union modifier, as befit the prevailing ordination laws in various parts of the world ~ and indeed, even here in the United States until just recently.

It arose in more secular parts of the world such as Commonwealth countries, and then spread to North America about a decade ago. We Celebrants are still a bit of a best-kept secret, but our media exposure is fast spreading as people are beginning to get the memo that we are only a click and a call away from being of personalized service.

Parade Magazine recently cited Celebrancy as one of the top encore career options for those 50+, the Rachael Ray Show aired a Valentine’s Day wedding segment featuring one of our CFI Celebrants as the skilled officiant, and Marlo Thomas shares a story in her latest book, It Ain’t Over…Till It’s Over, about a ceremony one of our more enterprising CF&I Celebrants created for her.
