EXPERIENCE

AWARD WINNING CEREMONIES CELEBRANT

One of few Asian Female Celebrants who can include Asian rituals, sing some mantras and give explanations. I am really looking forward to work with you to create unique ceremonies for you, in beautiful locations, ensuring your special day is celebrated in style. I speak English, Gujarati and Basic Hindi.

As your Celebrant I will give you the freedom to celebrate & remember without restriction. Whether you require a celebrant for a wedding, renewal of vows ceremony, naming ceremony or funeral service, we can work together to create the perfect celebration or memorial.

I am so excited to announce that I have won The Global Wedding Awards as Best Luxury Wedding Celebrant 2019 -UK and The BrideBook Celebrant of the Year 2019. I have also recently, been featured in The MailOnline and the London Wedding magazine.

YOUR WEDDING
We will work together to create a dream ceremony that suits your style and personality including any asian rituals that you would like to include.

YOUR RENEWAL OF VOWS
We will work together to recall and remember all those amazing memories you have created together including any memorable songs.

YOUR NAMING CEREMONY
We will work together to mark this special moment with special words and a symbolic ceremony including any family members and pets you want to.

FUNERALS & CELEBRATIONS OF LIFE
We will work together to ensure that we cherish and remember our departed with dignity and respect.

I am proud to be available to make your day special, unique and memorable.

I wish to help you celebrate and remember each stage of life. I can support you each step of the way and advise and guide to remove any concerns or confusion. This can be whether you wish to have a traditional or modern event. I am available for all events regardless of Culture, Creed, Race, Gender, Diversity or Identity.

I am proud to be available to make your day special, unique and memorable and can provide live music as part of the ceremony.

I am based in Middlesex but willing to travel to other parts of the Uk and internationally.

To find out more about me and the ceremonies I conduct, please do have a look at https://www.sonaldave.com/celebrant/

I look forward to hearing from you and having the opportunity to conduct your ceremony or service.

Regards

Sonal - The Best Supplier

Simran & Bishal

Dallas Burston Polo Club | August 0019

Sonal was the best supplier we worked with for our wedding. She had multiple calls with us before our big day to understand our wants for the ceremony and once booked she helped us both compile our vows to one another. Her personality really made our ceremony what it was; she brought a lot of humour and energy to kick start the rest of our wedding day. We couldn’t recommend her enough. Sonal was amazing both throughout the journey on the run up to our wedding and on the actual wedding day.

Sonal, You were wonderful

Supreet & Francesco

Hylands Estate | November 2019

Sonal was such a perfect celebrant for our wedding.

When we decided we wanted to create our ceremony, we knew finding the right celebrant was a crucial task. When we came across Sonal’s profile – we had a feeling she would be great – and she really was.

From our initial meeting we instantly liked Sonal and pretty much decided we wanted her on the spot. She instantly understood our values and what we stood for. She was non judgmental, friendly and incredibly warm – we felt she was truly open to our ideas and delivered exactly what we wanted.
So many people complimented Sonal during and after our wedding celebrations – she blended the Western and Eastern parts of our wedding beautifully and really was the perfect glue that made our ceremony perfect. I was a bit unsure how the ‘older’ more traditional members of our family would receive a slightly different ceremony, but the elegance, friendly and professional manner in which Sonal carried out out ceremony made it perfect. She was on time and worked well with the other suppliers.
Thank you so much, Sonal, for our beautiful wedding ceremony- I cant think of anyone who would have been more of a perfect fit – you were wonderful!


What Sonal says...

Dear Supreet and Francesco. Thank you so much for your personal review. From the first time we spoke on the phone, to the day we met I knew I really wanted to be your Celebrant for your special day and to be picked by you both was special to me. Thank you so much and do stay in touch.

Thank you

Above and Beyond

Emily & Dan

Hertfordshire Guide Centre | August 2019

Sonal was exactly what we wanted from a celebrant. Funny, interested in our ideas, open to suggestions and last minute alterations. Sonal spoke in a clear way which enabled my husband to lip read her easily throughout the ceremony and get the most out of his wedding too. Her calm presence helped us stay calm and she was prepared with our vows, including leaving us a lovely package with our ceremony script to keep. As far as a celebrant goes, she went above and beyond to make it special for us, even braving the heat! Thank you x

Wedding with Sand Ceremony

Chris & Emma

Wyboston Lakes | June 2019

We just wanted to say thank you for such an incredible ceremony last week, you did such an amazing job (even with the venue's dodgy microphone!). We're so glad we found you, we never imagined we would be writing our own vows or doing a sand ceremony, but these really made the day special. So many people commented on how much they loved the ceremony (lots of tears amongst our family and friends as well!)

Wedding with Hindu Rituals

Binit & Chaitaly

Poundon House | June 2019

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for helping Chaitaly and I create such a beautiful ceremony! We felt totally relaxed throughout it thanks to you and your upbeat, yet humorous delivery! We had so many compliments afterwards and many of our guests remarked at how wonderful you were!

We did receive the ceremony pack, which was beautifully packaged and we'll keep it safe for years to come!

I'd also personally like to thank you again for the public speaking course. The speech went really well in the evening and I overcame the tremor by taking on the advice provided by you. That was a huge hurdle for me!

Thank you again so much.......I'm sure we'll be in touch soon!
