Hi, I'm Sam

Hi my name is Sam, but I also go by my Pagan name: Aithne.

I have been Pagan for over 20 years and I’m the head of the Coven of the Rowan Tree.

I’ve done versions of Handfastings and Naming Ceremonies for friends and families for years, and have finally been persuaded make it official!

What's my ceremony style?

My style is: whatever you want!

I work with couples and families in the lead up to the ceremony. We discuss every aspect about the ceremony to make it as unique as you are.

The ceremonies do not have to completely Pagan orientated – it can be Pagan-lite or even Pagan-free if you want! My main priority is that you are completely happy with the day.

£50-100

Why choose Sam?

As a Pagan, I’m here to facilitate Pagan Handfastings/Naming Ceremonies for the many Pagans across the UK.

That being said, in true Pagan style: I will conduct a Handfasting/Naming Ceremony for ANYONE! You don’t have to be Pagan to have a Handfasting/Naming Ceremony!

A Handfasting is anything you want it to be, but the bottom line is that it’s about you!

What do I offer?

Name change wedding

Weddings

My ideal couple is ANYONE!

I love ideas and open minds. Doesn’t matter if you want it really traditional or out-there and wacky! This isn’t about what I want or what I believe, it’s about you.

My favourite ceremony type is whatever you want it to be. I keep saying it, but the day is not about me, it’s about you. I’m simply there to facilitate what will be one of the happiest days of your lives!

My prices start from £100.
Depending on how far away your ceremony will be taking place, depends on how much I will charge (this is only so I can cover my fuel costs).

I offer an experience that is as unique as the both of you. I’ll talk you through a typical ceremony and then we discuss how to make it personal and unique to you, readings, vows, how involved you want your guests to be… the list is endless!

Once it is all finalised, we do a quick virtual run-through before the big day. That way you can be absolutely sure that everything is how you want it.

Why choose Sam for your wedding?

I love a laugh and a joke, I’m very easy going! I’m very relaxed and love celebrating love.
I am very accommodating (but I do draw the line occasionally!) and aim to take as much of the stress out of planning your day as possible.

I love working with anyone with an open mind. You don’t have to be Pagan to have a Naming Ceremony, and the Ceremony itself doesn’t have to be Pagan!

Why choose Sam for your naming ceremony?

I love a laugh and a joke, I’m very easy going! I’m very relaxed and love celebrating family.
A Naming Ceremony is seen as an official induction into the community (be that the community of the wider family or the religious community), and I love that idea.
I am very accommodating (but I do draw the line occasionally!) and aim to take as much of the stress out of planning your day as possible.
