Reputation is an important factor when customers are choosing a celebrant to lead their ceremony, whether it be for a wedding, baby-naming, funeral service or even a new product launch. It can take many years to establish a first-rate reputation, but just one unforeseen incident can damage your good standing and have costly consequences for your finances. This is why having the right business insurance protection in place is of such key importance.

For the majority of celebrants there are two types of insurance that we would recommend as being essential:

  • Public Liability insurance can safeguard you against the cost of claims by customers or members of the public alleging injury or damage to property caused by your business activities.
  • Professional indemnity insurance can pay legal costs and compensation payments should a customer take action against you for a mistake you’ve made when providing professional services and advice as a celebrant

You may also want to consider these additional covers:

  • Employers’ Liability insurance is a legal requirement if you have employees working for you on a full or part-time basis.
  • Personal Accident insurance provides financial support should an accidental injury leaves you unable to work.
  • Property Damage insurance can provide cover for accidental loss or damage to your business equipment anywhere in the UK.
