A celebrant assists with booking, or assisting with ceremony design and eulogy. A formally trained ceremony-provider works deeply with the wishes of their clients.
Depending on circumstances, funeral celebrants usually meet with an individual and/or family, carefully prepare and check the eulogy, support persons chosen to give reminiscences and finally to provide resources and suggestions that will assist in choosing appropriate music, video or photo presentations, quotations (poetry and prose), symbols and movement or choreography.
A celebrant does not come from the standpoint of any doctrinal belief or unbelief.
A trained celebrant usually operates professionally on the principle that their own beliefs and values are not relevant.
