EXPERIENCE

Sarah Chapman - Professional Celebrant. Together we will create meaningful memories, which will bind you closer and give joy to all the special people on your special day. I have a Diploma in Celebrancy: Naming and Couples (QCF) and a Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy (QCF)
As a Celebrant I will help you create and then conduct your unique and individual Ceremony where ever and whenever you wish. All you need to do is choose the time, place, guests and style, and I will create vows, readings and words so that they are perfectly suited for you, your family and your friends. Your ceremony is unique to you and can include Candle, Flower, Sand Ceremonies, Hand Fasting, Jumping the Broom, Vows, Poems and Readings, your history and why your marriage and relationship is so important to you both.  I can also incorporate your ideas into the ceremony depending on your own beliefs and traditions.

As a Funeral Celebrant, my role is to offer bereaved families a funeral ceremony that reflects the wishes, beliefs and values of the deceased and their family. The ceremony will focus on celebrating and/or reflecting the life of the deceased and the tribute will be respectful and highly personal.

I also offer Celebration of Life ceremonies for individuals who want to be present, and indeed to be the centre of attention, at the last celebration of their lives. It is a time to honour and appreciate the living when they are near the end of their lives through age or illness. They want to enjoy their own funeral and the opportunity it gives them to see for the last time their friends, relatives, former colleagues, neighbours, team mates and those whose lives have touched theirs.
I will always offer a full copy of the text to the family, who may also check the content beforehand.
Whilst not a religious ceremony as such, religious content may be included, such as prayers or hymns.

CEREMONY STYLE

I have performed ceremonies in Woodland by an Oak Tree and in woodland glades, on beaches with kayaks, on the top of cliffs, in hotels, gardens and couples front rooms. I offer a personal ceremony that bind families together including children, grandparents and friends making sure that, if required, everyone has a role to play. I have a special interest in Hand Fasting and Jumping the Broom but also love performing the Cocktail Ritual and I even offer a Chocolate Ritual!
Funeral Ceremonies can be performed at Natural Burial Grounds, Crematoriums, Cemeteries and even in Village Halls, Hotels or in your own homes.

Naming for Jacob

Megan Malleson

Holmfirth Village Hall, Yorkshire | September 2013

We were so pleased to have Sarah as the Celebrant for our son’s Naming Day.  Sarah was friendly and professional all the way through, helping us to understand the role of a celebrant, develop our plans for the Naming Day and gave us lots of useful ideas for us to work with.  We were able to make the day really personal and just as we wanted.
Sarah was also our Knight in Shining Armour and saved the day when our helium balloons went flat on the morning of the ceremony.  Sarah rushed out to buy us some more, even though it was a Sunday, so that we could end the ceremony just as we planned.
I couldn’t recommend Sarah highly enough as a Celebrant, she made our special day really special!”

Fabulous Send Off

Andy Chapman

Torquay Crematorium | August 2017

We had never heard of a ‘celebrant’ until this occasion, and were so grateful that the funeral directors recommended Sarah. Sarah gave our mum a fabulous send-off, for which we are truly grateful. It was warm, sincere and full of our mum’s unique character. Mum would have loved it. Most people commented on how ‘lovely’ it was. We can’t thank Sarah enough, she was great.
Yes, Sarah was sensitive and efficient

Celebration of Love

Charlotte and Harry

Front Garden, Devon | July 2017

Just a quick message to say a huge thank you for conducting our ceremony back in July. The day was more magical than we ever imagined it would be and writing our own vows etc. gave us the freedom to create a ceremony that was true to us as a couple. Our family and friends all complimented your delivery and we would like to thank you for helping us put the day together. We feel the ceremony perfectly reflected our history, gave us the opportunity to celebrate our love and solidified our commitment.  

Perfect Day

Sue and Graham

Glazebrook Hotel, Devon | May 2017

Thank you so much for conducting our wedding ceremony, it was perfect in every way, thanks to your patience, kindness and guidance.
You took the time to get to know us and understand exactly what we wanted, making the ceremony so beautiful and personal to us.
The day was filled with so much love and laughter. Our guests enjoyed being involved in the “circle of ring blessing” and loved that we shared our own vows, both funny and emotional with them following the handfasting.
Many said that they had never been to a wedding quite like ours, using words like unique, beautiful and wonderful.
Thank you again for a perfect day.
Love and Blessings

Just plain WOW!

Alin and Mark

The Headland Hotel, Torquay | August 2017

Just wanted to say another big thank you. The ceremony blew everyone away especially the touches that you brought to it, bringing the Cambodian and British cultures together in such a lovely way. There were quite a few surreptitious tears too. Everyone also loved the thoughts about Alin’s family and those no longer with us. All in all, it was a marvellous day, meaningful, emotional, poignant, ecstatic and fun. Everything and more than Mark and Alin had hoped for.

If you ever need a reference, count me in. i thought you were totally wonderful.

With much love from all of us

Special Day

Naomi and Graham

Deer Park Hotel, Honiton | June 2014

From the moment we met Sarah from our pre-wedding meet up I knew she would be the right person to conduct our Wedding Vow Renewal.  Being terminally ill means that is was so important to get the wording just right.  Making sure there wasn’t talk of the future but talk of everything we have achieved.  Sarah’s words were moving yet upbeat which is exactly the type of people we are.
Thank you for making our special day one that we will remember forever.
