Atheist/Humanist Wedding Celebrants

HiNot sure if this topic should go here, so if it's better in another sub-forum, mods are welcome to move it.I am marrying my partner early November this year.  We are not having a church wedding, even though his mother wanted that - she's accepted that we don't want a church ceremony, although I would have used the church as the venue to make his mum happy.However, wherever we have the ceremony, we want a celebrant who is atheist or at least humanist, as we do NOT want any deity of any type…See More

"My pleasure Fiona! =)  Hope your move to the USofA goes smoothly! I've always wanted to go to Australia myself - in part - because I'm a huge fan of Aussie Rules! *L* Hope all is well with you."

"I wish you luck in Kentucky.  Some parts of the state are ... less primitive than others.  There is at least one Humanist group in one of the cities, and probably more.  I hope your son takes well to the change.  He may have a…"

"Glad to have you on our side!  We could use an infusion of non-stupid over here in the States! Not sure how friendly Kentucky is to that sort of thing.  Tennessee for one is known for being hyper-religious, and they are right next to each…"
