Welcome to the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC)


Home to some of the best, most competent and highly skilled Celebrants available.
As a Trade Association our objective is to provide our Membership with support, resources and personal development training to enable them to remain the most professional Celebrants both in the UK and overseas; and this includes a Mentoring scheme for newly trained Celebrants for as long as they feel they need it.

Our Mission Statement is ‘To provide our Membership with the best possible support and resources to be the most professional Celebrants in the UK and overseas’.


We are a forward-thinking Association which places the individual at the heart of its innovative Services and Ceremonies.

Whether your Ceremony/Service is happy or sad, our members will work with you to design, write and conduct a tailor-made Ceremony/Service suited to the occasion and you, our clients, will be involved every step of the way.


The AOIC maintains a prominent voice in the Celebrant Industry through its active membership of such organisations as the NAFD, SAIF, Dying Matters, The National Council for Palliative Care, The Child Funeral Charity as well as through articles published in trade magazines from the Funeral Industry and the Wedding & Family Ceremony Industry.

We are run by a Committee made up of Working Celebrants from all sides of the Industry and so can truly call ourselves ‘The Voice of the Celebrant’.
