Congratulations. Twice. Firstly, because you are getting married. Secondly, because you just found the ideal wedding celebrant for that important occasion. The wedding man is an experienced, articulate and smartly dressed celebrant who will give your humanist ceremony a unique, personalized touch to ensure that the key moment on your big day not only looks amazing, but feels amazing too.

the ceremony

It's your big day so you should have the ceremony exactly the way you want it - the laws of gravity and public decency allowing. However formal or informal you choose to make it, the wedding man will guide you in selecting the style of ceremony, the readings, the music and, of course the vows that best reflect you and your partner’s feelings and tastes. The wedding man will provide you with a professional, affectionately delivered tailor-made ceremony that you, your family and friends will cherish forever.

the location

The wedding man generally conducts weddings in a variety of beautiful locations in and around Barcelona and other parts of Catalonia, but he would be more than delighted to preside over your special day further afield if required.

the language

For the many couples from all over the world who decide to tie the knot in or near Barcelona, the wedding man is able to confidently conduct multilingual ceremonies in a mixture of English, Castellano, Français or Català. As a linguist he is also happy to have a stab at a phrase or two of any other languages should the couple so wish.
