Hi, I'm Sophie

I have been writing and delivering ceremonies for over 7 years and have a wealth of experience to draw from having completed many hundreds of ceremonies.

As a fully trained Civil Celebrant and Ceremonies Registrar, you can rest assured of my competence and professionalism.

I’m also a real people person and feel privileged to be part of occasions which are so personal and important to my clients.

Crafting bespoke Wedding and Funeral ceremonies is both my passion and expertise and this is evident in the testimonials I have received.

What's my ceremony style?

Wedding Ceremonies

Your ceremony should reflect and celebrate the two of you and what makes you unique. My ceremonies will truly capture both your characters and will be unique to you. With your input and my expertise, together we will create an entirely personal occasion. Your ceremony will set the right tone for the day and include memorable wording and personal touches that will make it really special to you and your guests.

My style of writing and delivery is warm, lighthearted and sincere.

Funeral Ceremonies

Like me, you may have attended funerals which have felt cold and matter-of-fact. I don’t believe it should be this way. I always aim to provide a personal and informed representation of a person’s life in the ceremonies I write and deliver the service sincerely and in a heartfelt way. This provides family and friends an opportunity to know they have done their very best to remember and say goodbye to their loved one.

My style of writing and delivery is warm and sincere.

Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony

Often used to mark a special anniversary or a life changing event, a wedding vow renewal ceremony can be a fantastic way of re-making your vows to one another in front of the all the important and special people in your lives. It’s your way of saying ‘remember those vows I made on our wedding day? Well, I meant every bit of them’.

Baby Naming Ceremony

Welcoming a little one, or sometimes not so little one (children can have naming ceremonies too) into this world is an extra special event. We can mark the day with a bespoke naming ceremony that lovingly introduces your baby or child to their nearest and dearest family and friends and to the bigger world beyond.

Life Memorial Ceremony

A life memorial ceremony can be the right choice when a more relaxed venue is preferred without time restrictions. A memorial ceremony can be a true celebration of the life of your loved one. Elements such as poetry and music often play key roles alongside the eulogy, and family and friends might like to get involved. These celebrations can include religious content or be entirely secular.

Scattering of Ashes Ceremony

A scattering of ashes ceremony is often an important marker for families. Some see is as an opportunity to bring their loved one safely to their journey’s end and others see it as releasing their loved one on to their journey beyond. Beautiful words that truly reflect the person lost will be delivered in a ceremony at a location of your choosing, followed by a ceremonial scattering.

Why choose Sophie?

I’m a firm believer in recommendations. So rather than blow my own trumpet, I thought I’d let the words of my clients speak for themselves……..

Sophie captured everything down to the last nuances perfectly. She had the congregation on board from the start and gave off her best throughout.

We were all in awe of how effortlessly she was able to steer us through the service albeit with our nerves and stress. (Wedding ceremony 2019)

It was the most incredible experience and we did not stop smiling through-out.

Having someone weave your lives together in front of your family and friends felt so personal, special and unique……… Sophie’s bubbly character really made the ceremony fun and relaxed, which was just what we wanted. (Renewal of vows ceremony 2019)

Just a heartfelt thank you from myself and sister, Sally, for the amazing job you did yesterday.

Everyone commented how perfect the proceedings went for Dad’s funeral – not least for the way you delivered our tribute. (Funeral ceremony 2020)

Dear Sophie, Thank you so much for all your help with my aunts funeral.

Mum was overjoyed at how beautiful it was and how everything went so smoothly

Sophie was amazing. She has a really lovely gentle way with her, she is compassionate and sensitive. She was extremely helpful with tips and advice leading up to my Dads funeral and made the whole thing much easier than it could have been. Massive thanks from all the family.
