Felictiy HarvestMy name is Felicity Harvest, and I am a British Humanist Association trained celebrant for weddings, funerals and namings. I live in East Sussex, with my husband, and between us we have three grown-up children.

I have believed in humanist principles all my life, but formally discovered the BHA when looking for material for my daughter’s naming ceremony over 20 years ago, and have been a member ever since. I have used BHA celebrants for family funerals, and for my own marriage, so I know from personal experience what a rewarding experience these ceremonies can be, with their personal focus, and emphasis on how we live our lives.

I started my working life as a theatre designer, then went on to run several different organisations including a cinema and an environmental project. I then worked in arts funding and development, finishing that part of my career as Regional Executive Director for the Arts Council here in the South East. Training as a celebrant has meant that I can bring my belief in humanism together with both my creativity, and a number of straightforward, useful skills I have learned over the years like listening, being organised, and making myself heard!
