Hi, I'm Sam

My name is Sam and I am a fun loving, open minded, modern celebrant who loves any excuse to celebrate life’s special moments!

I create unique ceremonies that ooze personality, love and warmth and that truly reflect who you are as a couple or family. I believe life is all about love and celebration – and your day should be all about you!

I have lived in Bristol for 20 years and this is well and truly home for me. I live with my husband and our legendary Westie, Chester and we love travelling, weekends away and long dog walks.

I am partial to a bottomless brunch, a karaoke session and love a musical! I’ll always strive to support small, local businesses, of which there are many amazing ones in Bristol, and love eating out, especially if it involves street food or Japanese food!

What's my ceremony style?

My style is modern and contemporary and I love an unconventional wedding. Festival weddings are great! Having said that I also love an outdoor wedding and barn and manor house weddings! I think having variety is fabulous!
It is so easy to fall into the trap of planning a wedding you think you are supposed to have rather than the one you really want. I will champion any wedding that takes tradition and turns it on it’s head.

If you were to ask me what my dream ceremony would be, it would be disco themed, involving dogs and a flashmob! I

If I sound like I’m the celebrant for you, I would absolutely love to hear from you

Why choose Sam?

I will take my time to get to really know you as a couple or a family and I want to celebrate with you and tell your story! Your ceremony should be fun, and so should the process involved in getting to know you and creating your script! So grab that glass of wine and lets start planning a day you’ll never forget!

I love to travel and I have worked in the travel industry for 12 years creating bespoke holidays and dreamy honeymoons. I pride myself in capturing every important detail to deliver a distinctive and special experience for my couples and families.

What do I offer?

Weddings

Firstly, a massive congratulations!

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and I truly believe this should be unique and memorable, celebrated your way!

You may want to include religious elements or family traditions, or none at all. Or perhaps you’d like to include symbolic elements such as a candle unity, sand ceremony or toast with your favourite tipple. Because this day is all about you, you can take any tradition and turn it completely on its head.

I’m happy to help with choosing readings, poems, music and vows, or if you’d like to write your own, then go for it! I will work with you to create a totally one of a kind ceremony with bags of personality and significance

I will arrange an informal chat so we can discuss your plans and ideas and any questions. This gives you time to ask me any questions. I will then send out a couples questionnaire a few months before the ceremony so I can dive deeper into your story and we will follow up with another meeting to discuss the logistics. Then comes the creative part – writing your ceremony! After as many amendments as you need, its time for the big day! After the ceremony you will receive a commemorative script of your ceremony and a certificate for signing.

Naming Ceremonies

Bringing a new life into your family deserves to be celebrated! If you don’t want a church christening but want a ceremony filled with joy and laughter, a naming ceremony is a wonderful way of welcoming a new baby, step or adoptive children into your family. It’s also the perfect excuse for a family get together!

Parents, family, friends and guide parents can all be involved in the ceremony and it can take place anywhere you wish. You may also like to include a symbolic element such as tree planting, a wish box, or have poems or music – again the possibilities are endless for a truly unique and significant day.

I will then send out a family questionnaire a few months before the celebration so I can dive deeper into your story and we will follow up with another meeting to discuss the logistics. Then comes the creative part – writing your celebrations! After as many amendments as you need, its time for the naming ceremony! After the ceremony you will receive a commemorative script of your ceremony and a certificate for signing.

Renewal of Vows

A renewal of vows is the most wonderful way to reaffirm your love for each other.

There are many different reasons why couples choose to renew their vows. Have you reached a marriage milestone? Or come through one of life’s hardships together? If so, a vow renewal is a great way to celebrate your relationship. Surround yourself with family and friends, or keep it more intimate, we can relive those moments of when you first met, the engagement and all the fantastic memories you’ve made as a couple. It’s the perfect way to commemorate your journey together so far and the hopes and dreams still to come.

There are no restrictions or legalities involved in a vow renewal, so these can take place anywhere you desire

Sam was a wonderful Celebrant for our wedding, she was really friendly and ensured that everything was perfect for us. The personalisation for our ceremony was exceptional! We also loved the small touches, such as a print out of our service and a lovely handmade card.

Wedding | 09/25/2021 | Cornwell Manor

It was an absolute joy to have Sam as our celebrant at our wedding in September, and we cannot recommend her highly enough! Sam really took the time to get to know us over the months leading up to the big day, and as a result delivered the most perfect ceremony which was entirely fitting for us as a couple. We would not have changed a thing, and have been raving about Sam ever since! We have received so many compliments about how uplifting and refreshing our ceremony was, compared to other weddings. Thank you so much Sam!

Couldn’t be happier to have her as part of our wedding journey!

Wedding | 09/04/2021 | Peak View Gardens

I would absolutely recommend Sam if you are currently looking for a wedding celebrant. I don’t even know where to start because from day one Sam has been incredible. We met her via Zoom during the pandemic and in all honesty had no idea what to expect. We so quickly clicked and we knew that she was the celebrant for us. Sam has been an absolute rock to us during the wedding planning process, she went above and beyond what we would ever expect of a celebrant. When we got to meet Sam in person for the first time, she helped us regain the excitement for our wedding that we had lost following countless cancellations and hiccups due to the pandemic and lockdown. She kept our spirits up throughout the lows and shared the highs with us. When you choose Sam as your celebrant, you do not just get a celebrant, you will get the absolute best service and someone who will be genuinely invested in you and your ceremony. Sam wrote a ceremony for us that was so personal and heartfelt and we could never have trusted someone else to tell our story like we trusted Sam. Our wedding guests all commented on how wonderful the ceremony was and how much they loved Sam. She is passionate, personable and just the loveliest person you could ever meet. We feel so fortunate to have met Sam and couldn’t be happier to have her as part of our wedding journey
