Hi, I'm Sophie

I have been writing and delivering smiley, one-off ceremonies for over 8 years and have a wealth of experience to draw from having completed many hundreds of ceremonies . I love the job I do and rumor has it I’m pretty good at it!

As a fully trained Civil Celebrant and Ceremonies Registrar (unlike some shhhhh!), you can rest easy and feel assured of my competence and professionalism.

I’m also a real people person; it’s my total privilege to play a part in occasions which are so personal and important to my clients.

Crafting one-off, memorable Wedding and Funeral ceremonies is both my passion and expertise and I guess this is evident in the testimonials I receive.

I’d love to chat more about your ceremony plans on: 07854 918723 www.celebratewithme.co.uk

What's my ceremony style?

Wedding Ceremonies

Your ceremony should reflect and celebrate the two of you and what makes you unique. My ceremonies truly capture both your characters and your love story. Your ceremony will set the right tone for the day and that’s a promise. There will be memorable moments, personalization, guaranteed giggles, and maybe the odd tear (usually the groom).

My style of writing and delivery is warm, smiley, lighthearted and sincere. Let’s do this shiny, happy people xx

Funeral Ceremonies

Like me, you may have attended funerals which have felt cold, impersonal and matter-of-fact. I firmly believe it should never be this way. My funeral ceremonies are all unique and written to truly reflect your loved one and their life, their attributes, beliefs and passions. My delivery style is warm, heartfelt and sincere.

Why choose Sophie?

I’m a firm believer in recommendations and I’m not very good at blowing my own trumpet. So, 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 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 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 it.

What do I offer?

Weddings

I’m driven to create warm, smiley, one-off wedding ceremonies that are remembered for all the RIGHT reasons. Ceremonies YOU will feel truly proud of and that’s a promise!
I’d say my default ceremony style is traditional with a twist or informally formal. The scripts I write and deliver have been kindly described as ‘intuitive’, ‘heartfelt’ and ‘spot on’. Oh and I do love to raise a smile, I just can’t help it!
My ideal couples prioritise family, friends, feelings and integrity above anything else. They love aesthetics, a good giggle and a dam good party.
I work across Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, West Sussex, Surrey, Berks, Bucks and London.

You might also find it good to know that I’m open to suggestion, sounds dodgy right?! What I mean is, if a 70’s disco theme wedding is your dream well brilliant, I’m up for it, I love a flare and a Farrah Fawcett blow dry!!

My Wedding Ceremony package cost £575 to include:
– Ceremony planning call or zoom
– Bespoke script with unlimited amendments until you’re totally happy
– Phone call the night before to settle any last-minute nerves
– Delivery of ceremony by Sophie on the day
– Expert advice and inspiration every step of the way
– Travel Within 40 miles (complete journey) of BH23 ,Bransgore, New Forest

Funerals

I write and deliver bespoke, highly personalised Funeral and Celebration of Life ceremonies that truly reflect your loved one, their quirks, their achievements, their passions, their attributes, their life.

I also firmly believe a good funeral or celebration of life ceremony can do YOU a lot of good too.
For those planning the send-off, a feeling of fulfilment following a ceremony is absolutely possible and I work closely with my clients to ensure that’s exactly what they get.

Prices for a Funeral Ceremony start at £220 and include:

– Ceremony planning face to face meeting at your home or a preferred place (zoom call if preferred)
– A bespoke script with unlimited amendments until you’re totally happy
– Delivery of ceremony by Sophie on the day
– Expert advice and inspiration every step of the way regarding music & poetry choices, eulogy writing etc…

A funeral ceremony at your local Crematorium or Woodland Burial Ground is a popular choice for most families. Your Funeral Director will advise you of the choices.

A Celebration of Life Ceremony can be discussed directly with myself.

Once you’ve decided you’d like me to conduct the ceremony, you can call me directly to let me know you’d like to get the ball rolling.
Or you can pass my contact details to your Funeral Director and they will call me.

Why choose Sophie for your funeral?

I’m a firm believer in recommendations plus I’m just not good at blowing my own trumpet. So, I thought I’d let the words of my former clients speak for themselves.
‘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.’ (ceremony 2020)

‘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'( ceremony 2020)

‘Me & Mum are just here together & we wanted to let you know again just how grateful we are for all you did to make Dad’s celebration so lovely. You really did make it so special for us. Everyone commented on how what a lovely person you are & what a moving eulogy you gave. It really did feel like you knew Dad.'(ceremony 2021)

Wedding | 10/16/2021 | The Old Vicarage

We had Sophie as our celebrant for our wedding and cannot thank her enough. She contacted us before the wedding to get to know us, then tailored the ceremony to make it so personal to us as a couple. It was absolutely perfect and couldn’t have imagined it any other way.

Sophie was a perfect host for my mums funeral. The tone was spot on and many people have approached me saying they’d have liked to have Sophie for funerals of their loved ones. Couldnt reccomend more.
