I'm Laura, a native of Belfast and former inhabitant of Paris (where I worked as a dancer in Disneyland) and London (where I trained to become a teacher, met my husband, and became a mum!).
I was inspired to become a Humanist wedding celebrant for a number of reasons. When Joe and I got married a few years ago, Humanist weddings didn't exist in Northern Ireland. We knew we would feel a bit hypocritical having a religious wedding, but didn’t want a registry office wedding either, where we would only meet our registrar on the day of the ceremony. After completing the legal paperwork at Belfast City Hall, our best friend Andy married us on our beautiful, special, wonderful ‘real’ wedding day at Riverdale Barn, and it was just perfect for us.
