About

I’m John Rafferty, a Humanist Celebrant, and President of the Secular Humanist Society of New York. I am certified by the Humanist Institute, and licensed by the city and state to perform weddings in New York. I offer non-religious civil ceremonies tailored specifically to your wishes and your tastes –“dignified but happy,” as one happy mother-of-the-groom put it.

Whether you are planning a large gathering or a small, family affair, in a traditional wedding chapel or a public space, in the privacy of your home or on the traffic island in the middle of Times Square (yes, I’ve done that), in a hotel ballroom or under the trees in Central or Prospect Park, I will not forget that it is your wedding, done your way, on your day.

To discuss your day and your wedding, please contact me at john@rafferty.net, or phone 212-371-8733.
