This time of year is traditionally the perfect time to reflect on the past 12 months and remember everything that's happened and the lovely memories made. We've caught up with Kelly Hawes Celebrant to learn how weddings have changed after the lockdowns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Kelly says: "From July 2021, weddings were well and truly back! Everyone felt cautious at first but looking back at the past six months, I have seen a significant change in wedding celebrations. The main difference I have felt as a celebrant was the emotion at ceremonies – it wasn't just couples emotion but their guests as well. At each wedding you could feel the relief in the room that the day had finally arrived and was going ahead.

Six couples are taking their case to the High Court on 7-8 July to take a landmark challenge over the legal recognition of humanist marriages; their case is being supported by humanist celebrants. Siân Jackson a celebrant, based in Neath, Wales commented, "Humanist ceremonies bring meaning, personality and depth to a non-religious ceremony in a way which is just not possible within the construct of a civil ceremony. Why shouldn't non-religious couples have the right to celebrate their union in a way that is significant to them, as religious couples do?"
