Looking for a wedding celebrant?

328 weddings since starting this blog 10 years ago (every one of them has at least a few words in past years section) ... and a fair few before


My name is Toby Harper and I have been working as a humanist minister/actor on weddings for many years. I am based about an hour away from Barcelona in Spain though I have married people symbolically all over Catalunya, up to France, throughout Spain and even in Morocco. I have carried out ceremonies in English, Spanish and Catalan, and have added bits and pieces in German, Italian, Swedish, Portuguese and French, not to mention at least a welcome in Turkish, Arabic, Russian, Serbian or Hungarian among others. Many of the ceremonies I conduct have been in a mixture of languages and nationalities as part of our ever decreasing world where couples come together regardless.


This page is constantly being updated with the latest news from weddings just carried out and what is upcoming, a few photos (though I have been told I cannot do that anymore so now just put pictures on Instagram @tobyweddings), some videos (though they are difficult to post since they must pass through YouTube's censorship and couples often do not get music rights so if you would like a video just ask, I have a couple I can pass on) and any readings I come across that I think might be of interest to other couples as well as rituals that can be included in a ceremony or ideas on venues or musicians or photographers and so on.


Please note that the humanist/symbolic ceremonies that I conduct are not legally binding, they are, more often than not, a precursor to an official wedding or even following one that has already taken place. Having said that the majority of the couples who choose to carry out this type of ceremony consider this to be their "big day" with a ceremony all about them and surrounded by those they love in the beautiful Catalan countryside.


If you would like a quote for the ceremony please get in touch by clicking the link just below or giving me a call. If prices suit I will send a blue print to start the wheels in motion. Having had a look at my ideas we would then organise either a meet or a skype/FaceTime/WhatsApp/Zoom chat and take a look at details ... after that comes the time for your input! You will see that I ask for as much detail as you are willing to give to try to craft a personal and very individual ceremony. Please feel free to get in touch at +34 652453508 or send a mail to soctoby@gmail.com.
