Hi, I'm Sarah

Hi, I’m Sarah and as a celebrant I take great pride in “Finding the words for life’s big moments”. I believe that love is love is love and wherever it is found, it should be celebrated. Two people (whomever they are) wanting to become a team that chooses to face everything together is incredibly special. The moment you create that union and take the next step on your journey should be completely unique to you and handled with the utmost care and that is what I do for couples, every time. Whatever visions you have for your ceremony, I will 100% help you achieve them. Anyone and anything can be included; it’s your wedding so, anything goes!

What's my ceremony style?

I LOVE working with couples and hearing their stories; lets face it, love stories are the BEST kind of stories! I I want to make your perfect ceremony come to life; I will embrace your ideas and as a well as a bespoke script, I’ll help put in place a plan for you to fully realize your dreams. Nothing makes me prouder than seeing the spark of an idea through to the day itself and it being just as you have envisioned. With 20 years in the theatre industry under my belt, I like to make sure we wow your crowd with the best possible production we can give them!

Why choose Sarah?

Language is everything and when expressing our love for another person, it needs to be chosen carefully. I will create for you a poignant, special and heartfelt ceremony and one where (hopefully!) everyone has fun and comes along on the ride with you. I also, quite simply, enjoy speaking aloud! How words are delivered is paramount in capturing their meaning and ultimately, how they are remembered. I am a natural public speaker so as your celebrant I will engage your guests, address them with confidence and put everyone at ease.

What do I offer?

Weddings

Any couple with love to celebrate, then I’m your girl! Whether traditional or more contemporary, we can make your wedding heartfelt and also fun. Perhaps you’d like to include others – family members, friends, children – pets even! Well then let’s do it. Perhaps you’d like a complementary balance of sentiment and humour? Is detail important to you – music choices, readings etc? Perhaps your venue is a chic hotel or maybe a romantic country house? Or maybe it’s city based or something a little different; a roof terrace, a gallery, a village hall. Whatever the who’s, where’s, when’s or what’s then I’d love to hear your plans and you can let me help with the “how’s”.

For every wedding, we will “meet” to discuss your day in detail and your hopes for the ceremony. I’ll also learn more about you as couple and your story so far. I’ll then further explore your journey by way of couples questionnaires, ahead of me putting pen to paper and creating your truly unique ceremony. We will stay in touch throughout and we will get the script exactly right, ahead of your wedding day when I will deliver this for you and create a truly memorable day for you and your guests. Further additions might be a wedding rehearsal, assistance with selecting music / musicians, assistance with reading choices, assistance with writing vows and the addition of symbolic elements.

Why choose Sarah for your wedding?

We will celebrate your love right from the start. Your ceremony IS the heart of your wedding so it should reflect who you are as a couple. It shouldn’t feel like a formality or “the boring bit”; don’t wait for the reception for the fun to start! I’ll embrace your wedding style and use that to capture you as a couple. We can mix heartfelt with fun, sentiment with laughter, tradition with alternative – your day, your way! Your ceremony will be just as you imagine, and I will run it like clockwork so you can just enjoy every moment.

Funerals

As your funeral celebrant I want to offer you and your family help and support through an incredibly difficult time; be assured, you will be treated with the utmost care. Working together with funeral directors (or separately), I will fully personalize the service, creating whatever atmosphere feels right for your loved on. We can celebrate life and honour your loved one for the individual that they were, what they meant to others and what they gave to the world around them. Many people today are not releigious and therefore feel a faith based service is not right for them. Conversely, some may consider themselves spiritual in some way, and lots of people feel like they believe in “something” but are not quite sure what. Any and all such outlooks can be honoured as well as any cultural traditions or beliefs.

I will honour, commemorate and celebrate your loved one and I will support you throughout the entire process. And if it’s what you desire, we absolutely can make the ceremony joyful. As your celebrant I will be striving to achieve everything you need to from the funeral. We will discuss choices available to you and what might honour your loved one in the most appropriate fashion.
As well as a traditional funeral service (burial or cremation) you might consider remembering your loved one by holding a celebration of life, a memorial service, an ashes interment, or a ceremony for the scattering of the ashes. Or through a variety of ways. Any of these options offer you the space to say goodbye, share memories with friends and family and commemorate the person you so dearly miss.
It is with honour that I officiate Baby and Child Funerals; please do reach out should you require such support.

Why choose Sarah for your funeral?

A funeral can celebrate a live well lived and appreciate the joy that a person brought to the lives of others and the unique mark they made on this world, even if it is a life – unfairly – cut short. It is a dedicated time – and space – for personal reflection in light of a loved ones passing. As a funeral is the coming together in grief to bear witness to the life that’s lost, as your celebrant I would hope to transcend that and strive to provide support, comfort and hope. Personally, I feel, if done well, a good funeral should make the passing of a loved one (even if only fractionally) that little bit easier to bear.

We are extremely lucky that Sarah is a dear friend of ours. When we learned that she was choosing to change her career and become a celebrant we knew this was the opportunity made for her and would allow others to experience the compassion, love and thoughtfulness that Sarah delivers and exudes in abundance in her day to day life.

Due to covid we had to postpone our wedding 4 times. As a result by the time our wedding could finally go ahead we wanted to ensure it was personal and intimate, not showy. We had initially agreed to be married by the church but did not feel the service they were able to provide us with was about us.

When we asked Sarah whether she would be interested in being part of our day she jumped at the chance.
Sarah would deliver a joint marriage service with the church to enable us to marry. Sarah spoke with the church to see wtherther this would indeed be possible to hold such a service and when they agreed she took control of the majority of aspects of our service.
She took the time to research us and get us to reflect on our relationship, which in fact allowed us to fallen even deeper in love with each other. She took time to get to know us in greater depth and looked into how we are as a couple ensuring that we were each able to be represented in the way we wanted to be on our day.
Sarah spent time finding the most prefect readings that represented us so well in our relationship, she spent time visiting the venue, liaising with the church and ensuring that no matter what our day was going to be how we wanted it to be.

Knowing Sarah was at the helm on the most important day of our lives was incredible. She was beautifully eloquent, funny, passionate, attentive, calm, dedicated, and her words echoed every sentiment of the love we hold for each other as well as our family & friends. She even surprised us by mentioning our cat and furbaby Atticus, into the service (which meant the absolute world)
Each and every personal touch just felt so special.

We felt incredibly blessed to know that not only were we finally getting married but that we were being married by our dearest friend… I don’t think we could have dreamt of a better way to get married!!!

Even if Sarah wasn’t our friend, I’d have wanted her involved in such an important life milestone. She is self assured, compassionate, attentive, understanding, inclusive, supportive and makes a celebration out of life. She all about celebrating people, the love they have for one another and promoting the memories and stories and highlights from their lives – all without you realise she is collating all this information!!!
She brings the joy to the forefront and she does this with ease… that’s just who she is.

I have no doubt in my mind that even though she has only been a celebrant less than 6 months she is already phenomenal at her job. She exudes confidence not in a cocky way, but in a reassuring manner than makes you know that all will be ok with her involvement and being in charge of your day.

I cannot recommend her highly enough. Seriously, look no further for any celebrant need you may require. You will be incredibly grateful that you booked her.

Sarah thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for not only being our friend, for helping us prepare for the biggest day of our lives but by making it the best day of our lives. You finally helped us to become husband and wife and we will forever be grateful to you for being such a class act.

We adore you & you will forever be our Joey xxxx

Love Mike & Katie

I had the pleasure of working alongside Sarah on a ceremony in May.

Sarah has a natural ability to make people feel completely safe in her care.
It is rare to see someone with such confidence and ease when standing before a congregation.
As a celebrant, being able to connect with people is so important and Sarah is a natural.

She is a warm-hearted celebrant, who genuinely loves people.
She is also an exceptional writer and delivers her scripts with equal grace and humility.

She is a master of her craft.
You’d be lucky to have her as your celebrant, whether for a wedding or funeral.
First-class!!!
