Hi, I'm Sam

I am ‘The Sunshine Celebrant’ and my intention is to inject a little sunshine, a little Joie de vivre, into your ceremony. So, whether you are looking for a Celebrant for your wedding, vow renewal, naming ceremony or a funeral service, I could be the perfect person for you.
I create individual bespoke ceremonies based on your wishes, dreams, and thoughts, and include as much of your personalities and interests as possible to make the ceremony perfectly yours. I am a lover of words and hope to use my passion along with inspiration from you, to write a ceremony to make you proud.
Do you want to include your family and friends in the ceremony? Well, we can arrange that, whether that’s including them in the vows and promises, adding mini ceremonies or including them in readings or performances, the choice is entirely yours.

What's my ceremony style?

I am all about the ‘sunshine’ moments, a little something to make your ceremony extra special. I like quirky, geeky, literary, romantic, natural, well just about any type of ceremony, if it reflects the people involved.
Do you want to dress up as Elven warriors, galactic pilots, or historical heroes? No problem. Or would you like a reading from an epic poem or a scene from your favourite movie? This too can be arranged. As long as we put a bit of you into it, that’s great and the more fun the better as far as I am concerned.

Why choose Sam for your wedding?

‘I believe in a thing called love’ and ‘When you love someone’ ‘The power of love can be a curious thing’. I know I am getting a little ahead of myself. Music can be very evocative and is known to create an emotional response, so, let’s tug at the heart strings of your loved ones with some special tunes. So, if you are ‘Addicted to love’ and if you believe like the (fictional) Prime Minister in Love Actually that ‘love actually is all around’ then let me help you demonstrate this to the world, considering ‘All you need is love’?

Introducing your child to the world is a special occasion and if I can help make that day truly memorable then I would be on cloud nine! I adore children and have plenty of ideas to inject something special into their day. How about a memory box with wishes from the family for them to open on their 18th Birthday? Or a fairy tale celebration based on your favourite children’s book. Let us see what we can come up with together!

Funerals

I began my ‘Celebrant’ journey after losing someone special to me and having to arrange a funeral. So, although I may not know how you are feeling, I do understand what you are going through. Let me help you to create a fitting send off for your loved one, capturing their essence and all the things that made them so special. I still want to inject a little sunshine into the occasion (although I can’t guarantee the weather!) So, let us ‘celebrate’ their life in the best way possible, adding their favourite music, readings from their favourite authors, or even a comedy sketch!

I will meet with you in person or can arrange a video call to discuss your style of service and its content. I can write a meaningful tribute to your loved one and will create the rest of the individual service with your help. I can help with music or poem selection; prayers and blessings and I can also include some special moments in your service including candle lighting or flower ceremonies if you so wish.
If you are working with a funeral director, I will liaise with them where required to make sure that everything runs smoothly on the day.

Funeral | 07/20/2022 | Westerleigh Crematorium

Sam Griffiths guided us through this potentially distressing process with ease and reassurance. Sam crafted a lovely tribute after listening to stories about our mother, organised the order of service cards, liaised with the funeral directors and then delivered a seamless service. Sam is empathetic, knowledgable, very professional and personable. We totally recommend Sam as a safe pair of hands. Thank you, Sam!

Funeral | 06/17/2022 | Westerleigh Crematorioum

Thank you all for explaining everything to us, as you can imagine, it’s not something most people go through too regularly, thankfully. Sam fully explained & conducted the ceremony perfectly and guided us so diplomatically through the final day process. Thank you so much from all of us in Isabel’s family & everyone who turned up in person & in spirit, to pay their last respects. Everything was perfect & professionally dealt with, which helped to ease the painful & emotional process for us all.

The ceremony was complimented by everyone who attended.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Regards

Mal, Tracey, Siân & our families.
