    Gina was very flexible, professional, and put us all at ease, when we needed it most.

    Gina was amazing and made our ceremony most memorable. She took the time to get to know us and listened to what we wanted. Then during our rehearsal our coordinator didn't show and she was able to help us get everyone lined up and ready. Gina is amazing!!!

About this pro

Gina Kirkland, based in Los Angeles, California, is a Humanist Celebrant available for wedding ceremonies, life celebrations, and naming ceremonies that reflect Humanist principles. She offers her services in the Southern California area and is also available to travel to your location. Her primary goal is to help two persons celebrate their love in a way that respects their identities and wishes by offering guidance and advice in the options available through language, ceremony, traditions, and modern twists on traditions. She takes great joy in helping people celebrate the joys and transitions of life in a way that respects their intentions and allows them to enjoy their special day fully. I LOVE love and helping people celebrate theirs. I also offer life celebrations (funeral services) and naming ceremonies for babies to celebrate all of the most important transitions in life. I am passionate about Humanism (Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.) and enjoy working with same sex and opposite sex couples alike. I also am happy to work with religious couples who prefer a non-religious ceremony.

    Q & A

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am a celebrant with the American Humanist Association and have gone through training to perform weddings, commitment ceremonies, naming ceremonies, and life celebrations. Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      As more and more people leave religion there has become a need for secular people to have traditions and celebrations that still honor the important transitions in life. I wanted to be a part of creating secular community and love being a part of these important life celebrations.
    Coverage Area for Gina Kirkland - Humanist Celebrant is about 50+ miles of Los Angeles, CA.
