Hi, I'm Sarah
I absolutely love creating ceremonies with personality for weddings, vow renewals and Naming days from your stories, memories and all of the things that make you who you are. Let’s make sure your ceremony is the one everyone remembers. Since I qualified in 2017 I’ve performed over 150 ceremonies and every single ceremony makes me love my job even more
What's my ceremony style?
Personally, I go for the “human” approach whilst still staying professional. Most of my couples and families are surprised by how much we have in common and I love that we can just chat as friends, completely relaxed! I honestly think this approach not only puts you at ease but it will really help you open up so I can get a great idea of what you’re all about, so ultimately I can create a ceremony which truly reflects you.
I deliver ceremonies in a lighthearted, story-telling style which instantly puts everyone at ease and allows you all to really enjoy the ceremony. I love adding a little fun without losing any of the sentiment and watching the reactions of your guests to your story.
Pop Song Instead of a Hymn!
One of my all time favourite memories as a celebrant was at a fun and colourful outdoor wedding in Oswestry. The bride and groom decided they loved the idea of singing during their ceremony but they did not want anything religious. So, instead they printed the words of Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” on makeshift hymn sheets, and halfway through the ceremony I encouraged everyone to stand and sing along with bonus points if they threw in some dance moves too! It was so fun and looking out over a sea of smiling and laughing guests was just magical!
Why choose Sarah?
If you’re looking for a down to earth, professional celebrant who will put you at ease and help you experience a ceremony with more personality, then look no further. I absolutely love creating ceremonies from your life stories, passions and all of the things that make you who you are. We can work together to make sure your ceremony is a true reflection of you and your wishes.
What do I offer?
My ideal couple is fun-loving with a sense of adventure, and a lust for life! They love of the great outdoors especially animals, and usually have furry family members too! They are laid back and want their ceremony to reflect their relaxed and informal personaities. They are looking for a fun celebration which they and all their guests can enjoy – they are huge on family and love their close friends who are more like family to them.
I get to know my couples through informal chats which allows them to open up about themselves without feeling as though they are being interrogated – only laughs and chilled vibes here! I write their ceremony based on their personalities, their style of wedding, and the location where they plan to say “I do”, so every single ceremony is totally unique!
I love encouraging their creativity by introducing them to rituals and personal touches such as handfasting, ring warming, lasso ceremony, and jumping the broom. There are so many ways to make sure every single guest remembers their big day for all the right reasons.
Why choose Sarah for your wedding?
If you’re looking for a down to earth, “human” celebrant to create a ceremony which has the perfect balance of humour, fun, sentiment and romance, I’d love to hear from you. I often find so many commonalities with my couples and we have so much fun getting to know each other. The whole process is fun and relaxed so by the time your big day comes around, there will be a familiar and friendly face waiting to greet you to calm any butterflies.
My business will always be proudly inclusive and reaches out to anyone looking to make their own rules when it comes to raising their child. I love working with down-to-earth parents who are looking for a fun and creative way of welcoming their child into their circle of family and friends.
I am all about creating a chilled and welcoming vibe for your little one’s special day and putting everyone (even little ones) at ease so the ceremony is a fun and enjoyable experience for all.
I chat informally with parents looking for a more personal, relaxed, and lighthearted celebration for their child. Kids are amazing, fun, inquisitive, and let’s face it, down right adorable! So, I try to make the planning process as fun as possible so together we can create a ceremony which highlights and celebrates all of these things!
Its often the case that the child is too young to remember their big day, so I encourage parents to create a keepsake during the ceremony such as a wish jar or a unity candle so when they are old enough they can hear all about their celebration and the promises and wishes that were made for their future.
Every family recieves a presentation copy of the script and a certificate too!
Why choose Sarah for your naming ceremony?
I have a background of working with children of all ages (and I’m a big kid at heart!) so I have a great understanding of how to keep little one’s engaged and entertained during the ceremony. Children have proven to respond well to my relaxed and fun approach, its so important your little one feels comfortable during the ceremony so no stuffy or pompous officant here!
Above everything, kids bring so much joy and fun to the world, so this should definitely be reflected in their naming ceremony!
Renewal of Vows
A loved-up couple who don’t take life too seriously, they’re quite content enjoying the company of friends and family, and are happiest just being together. They are down-to-earth and looking to celebrate their relationship and/or to signify a new chapter or beginning in their story.
My couples tend to be fun-loving, outdoorsy, animal lovers, creative, just “real” people – basically just like me! I tend to draw this kind of couple as we just resonate with each other, chatting is easy and care-free, and it often feels like we’ve known each other for years!
I offer a personal and relaxed service so we can get to know each other well, helping me to create a ceremony which is a genuine celebration of who they are as a couple, their story so far, and to bless their future for health and happiness. I love seeing their faces light up when I explain available rituals such as handfasting, jumping the broom, and sand blending, as it really ties in to their creativity!
Why choose Sarah for your renewal of vows?
If you’re looking for a relaxed and fun planning process with a down-earth celebrant, resulting in a lighthearted ceremony jam packed with personality and its fair share of sentiment, then I’m your girl!
You will love seeing and hearing your guests absorbing your story and remembering their own memories with you as your ceremony progresses. A perfect balance of fun and romance.
I am a down to earth celebrant who is genuinely grateful to be in a position where I can help families during some of the hardest moments of their lives. When I became a celebrant 5 years ago I just knew I wanted to help as many people as possible and since then I have helped over 70 families experience funeral ceremonies which are a true reflection of the person who has died by telling their story in a more personal way, often with a little humour and always with dignity.
I put families back in control of the ceremony at a time where they are often feeling overwhelmed and a little lost. I will visit them and take time to listen to them so they can build trust with me and share stories of their loved one in a relaxed and familiar environment. Once I have met the family I will write the first draft and send it to them to read through so we can make amendments together until they feel it is absolutely perfect.
Why choose Sarah for your funeral?
I am completely transparent with the way I work and approach every single ceremony as a completely new experience as every family is completely unique. I never tire of learning about the lives of those who have passed and hearing the wonderful stories and memories they have blessed their loved ones with.

Sue and Pauls Wedding
Sarah was our celebrant at our wedding ceremony at Ruthin Castle.
Paul and I found her to be professional and helpful during our initial chats online.
She understood our requirements and dealt with our queries in a friendly, confident manner, which put our minds at ease.
At the ceremony itself Sarah made us feel extremely relaxed and it all went beautifully. She had us laughing and tearing up with her kind words and thoughts. We cannot thank her enough. Sue and Paul xx
Beautiful written blessing service, few tears were shred. Sarah was very friendly and would highly recommend. Very good communication when contacted for any questions.
Sarah is absolute perfection from start to finish, I would highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married. Her writing actually made me cry is was so beautiful and perfect. I can’t thank her enough.
