Hi, I'm Sarah

ENGLISH/GREEK SYMBOLIC CEREMONIES I specialize in ceremonies in Greece all with a ‘sprinkling’ of Greek traditions! I am passionate about my work (well it doesn’t feel like work) lively, creative and entertaining and also very experienced, supportive and genuine. I create and perform ceremonies of all types in Greece, to include weddings, commitments, vow renewals, and naming ceremonies. I am based on the Island of Rhodes but able to travel anywhere in GREECE. As all ceremonies are termed symbolic (they don’t feel symbolic) most couples wanting a legal marriage arrange to do the paperwork side back home before or after travel leaving them unrestricted with their wedding ceremony in Greece. I love to be chosen to create and officiate an intimate, romantic elopement or micro wedding but also love a large luxury wedding too and am happy to act as Master of Ceremonies for the evening do!

What's my ceremony style?

I had my own wedding in Greece, a fair few ‘moons’ ago. There were no celebrant options back in the day. I work alongside all my couples and help them to have the ceremony of their dreams. I have lived in Greece for a lifetime! I raised my family on the Island of Rhodes and am married to a local Greece. In fact I could be described as the ‘original Shirley Valentine’!

I speak Greek so am happy to include Greek in my ceremonies for any couple with Greek heritage. I love to bring families together of mixed faith, and enjoy learning about different traditions and cultures. I am reliable, efficient, fun and lively! There is nothing I love more than a grand luxury wedding ceremony, but I fill intimate elopement ceremonies with fun and emotion too.

I love life as a celebrant in Greece, for me it is a vocation and not a job!

Naming Ceremonies

Are you thinking of a special naming ceremony for your little one? Perhaps you would like to combine a special naming ceremony in Greece with your destination wedding ceremony? I love naming ceremonies and often include symbolic elements for the life guardians/guiding adults such as a unity sand ceremony or a ribbon tying or even a time capsule. A villa venue can be the perfect choice for a naming ceremony in Greece!

Why choose Sarah for your naming ceremony?

I love writing and creating a special naming ceremony. I am often chosen by families with Greek heritage who have already had a Greek Orthodox Christening but want to have a non religious celebration with family and friends from further afield in addition. I love to make all my ceremonies unique and encourage family participation, this can make the ceremony so much more special and filled with fun and emotion.

Renewal of Vows

As a celebrant in Greece I love a romantic vow renewal ceremony. Perhaps you would like to celebrate a special anniversary, or you just want to exchange romantic, intimate vows with your ‘other half’? I am based on the Island of Rhodes, but travel anywhere in Greece for your special day. Athens, Santorini, Mykonos, Crete, Halkidiki are just a few examples, but we have so many different areas of Greece to choose from. I meet every couple online via Skype or WhatsApp, and the most important thing is that I am the right fit for your special day. I am passionate about my work and add fun and emotion in to all the ceremonies I write and officiate. No boring, generic scripts here!

Thank you so much Sarah, you were absolutely incredible!

Wedding | 09/17/2022 | Aurum Villas Rhodes Greece

We knew from the moment we first spoke with Sarah that she’d do an absolutely marvellous job and we were right! We got married at a villa on Rhodes in September and Sarah made the day. She had a marvellous way of putting the ceremony together and produced a copy beforehand for us to read but we wanted the surprise on the day and couldn’t have been happier. If you want a wonderful celebrant who tailors the ceremony to your needs, you can halt your search. Thank you so much Sarah, you were absolutely incredible and made our day. It was a truly touching ceremony.

Renewal Of Vows | 09/08/2022 | Philosophia Pefkos Rhodes

My wife Dee always fancied the idea of renewing our vows after 20 years and doing so on a beach on Rhodes. It didn’t take long to choose Sarah as celebrant, the warmth that comes across on her web site was enhanced during our early conversations. Sarah crafted a personal and heartfelt ceremony for us incorporating all the elements we desired. She made a special trip to see us beforehand and made the whole experience perfect. We had the right balance of informality with personal touches alongside the elements of sincere dedication. We couldn’t thank her enough for her hard work and personal service. Dee extends her extra heartfelt gratitude for making the occasion so special.
With love Dee & Simon.

Wedding | 08/26/2022 | Philosophia, Pefkos, Rhodes

Sarah is one in a million. Getting married abroad can be quite daunting but with Sarah on hand to help me with not only the celebration but with giving me advice with locations, transfers, florists and cake ladies she made the wedding run smoothly and it was perfect.
Sarah shared our story beautifully and I will be forever grateful for all her help.
