THE WEDDING MAN

the man himself

Despite the name, the wedding man is not actually a superhero. He’s just a regular person, called James Humber who is quite good at being a wedding celebrant. Although originally from England, James has lived in Spain for nearly 30 years. He has two cheeky, but lovely adult children, both born and raised in Barcelona.

When not fully engaged in the busy wedding season, James is just as busy as founder and director of a successful educational theatre company that produces original plays and videos in English for language learners of all ages throughout Spain and Portugal.

In his downtime he’s pretty ordinary too; he reads books, watches films, listens to music, rides his bike and, despite his creaky knees, still plays football, goes running and is an enthusiastic, if somewhat unskilled kick-boxer.

James still considers himself very lucky to live in the Mediterranean and have not one, but two fun and fulfilling jobs that he loves doing.

the definition

So, what exactly is a wedding celebrant? Good question. A wedding celebrant is quite simply the person appointed by the happy couple to conduct their wedding ceremony exactly the way they want it.

The celebrant has a similar role to a Vicar, Imam, Priest, Rabbi, or State Registrar, but offers a private, non-denominational/non-institutional ceremony that is not only highly personalised and completely unique to each couple, but also extremely meaningful to them. Simple, really.
