What you'll learn about weddings in the course

Gathering & Compiling information

Allowing your clients to fill out a thorough online form, or answer questions via video/phone call, is a vital step in preparing a ceremony.

We'll teach you the most effective ways to gather and organise information from those you serve, allowing you to create a truly perfect ceremony.

Preparing for a wedding ceremony

Preparation is key for any ceremony, especially a wedding.

Since this will be one of the biggest days of your couple's lives, you must ensure all props are prepared, drafts and scripts are meticulously planned and executed. This is what our online course will teach you.

Conducting a wedding ceremony

With everything planned and prepared, all that's left is to lead the ceremony.

In our course, you'll be given the skills to officiate weddings to the highest standard. You'll also gain valuable tips on managing emotions and crowds in unforeseen situations.

We cover weddings of all kinds

Traditional

The most common wedding type dating back millennia, where a man is taking a woman's hand in marriage.

Same-sex

Same-sex weddings didn't exist until not too long ago, but we celebrate them now in all their wonderful glory.

Multi-cultural

We cater to wedding ceremonies of any religious or cultural theme. FuturFaith Ministers are totally inclusive.

More information on weddings

What is a wedding ceremony?

A wedding is a celebration (and often a legal binding) of the unity of two people together in marriage.

Traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures and religions, but most weddings involve the exchange of vows and rings between a couple, and a public proclamation of the marriage by an officiant (i.e. a FuturFaith Minister).

What is the legal process?

There is a legal process involved when getting married in Ireland and Northern Ireland, which follows government guidelines and regulations (i.e. HSE and GRO NI).

You'll learn in-depth about these processes in our course, and by graduation time, you'll have acquired the particulars of legal wedding ceremonies.

How is this ceremony laid out?

While we have a general guideline of the way our weddings are laid out at FuturFaith, the choice is entirely up to your client's preference.

You will learn to listen and embody requests on demand, allowing you to create the ceremony of your client's dreams, no matter what their preferences are.
