Birthday Ceremony on Banquet Boat


We celebrated John’s birthday with High Tea on the wonderful Banquet Boat based in Dartmouth.  Sarah and Callum welcomed us aboard with Prosecco then motored up the river to Dittisham.  Sarah then brought out a feast of delights for us to eat with lashings of tea and more Prosecco.

We raised our glasses to John and sang Happy Birthday as he blew out the candles on the Strawberry Meringue Roulade – specially chosen as it was Gluten Free.

We returned three hours later after our trip on the Dart – we even saw a large seal sunning itself on the beach.

A memorable day and we were looked after with smiles and care.  Nothing was too much trouble for Sarah and Callum, we highly recommend them – they even played our favourite music!

All ceremonies can be performed on this beautiful boat for up to 12 guests.  have a look at their website then call me for more information about your Renewal of Vows, Weddings, Baby Namings and even Funeral Wakes.

Wedding Confetti

Your dried petals from funeral flowers can also be saved for Confetti – a wonderful addition to a family wedding.

Thank you for a Perfect Ceremony

I am always so moved when I receive wonderful feedback from families.  It makes a big difference to me as it confirms that I am offering them ceremonies that celebrate their loved ones lives in the best way possible.  The Institute of Civil Funerals sent me this feedback recently:

We had never heard of a ‘celebrant’ until this occasion, and were so grateful that the funeral directors recommended Sarah. Sarah gave our mum a fabulous send-off, for which we are truly grateful. It was warm, sincere and full of our mum’s unique character. Mum would have loved it. Most people commented on how ‘lovely’ it was. We can’t thank Sarah enough, she was sensitive,  efficient and just great.

After the ceremony everyone was invited to the beach for fish and chips followed by an ice cream as this was one of Mum’s favourite places!

Petals can be made into sentimental keepsakes like jewellery: bracelet charms to keep a loved one close by, a necklace or tie clip to keep them near the heart, a pendant to wear their love proudly – even a paperweight.
