Once you have fulfilled the legal formalities required under English Marriage Law – see your local Register Office for details, in my role as wedding celebrant I will then lead you through the whole process, to create the Wedding Ceremony and the day you dream about.

I believe that your Wedding Ceremony is at the very heart of your day.  Choosing a celebrant to deliver your Wedding Ceremony gives you a whole range of options that a registrar just can’t.  So….you can have your ceremony anywhere, not just licensed venues.  I have performed Wedding Ceremonies in couples’ favourite places; beaches, woods, their own gardens, hotels, on boats, cliff tops or even where you got engaged, including in Piazza San Marco in Venice, so I have vast experience with different venues and ceremonies.

Your Wedding Ceremony can include: walking down an aisle, giving and blessing of rings, exchanging of vows, lighting of candles, poetry, even religious or spiritual words. Symbolic Rituals to unite you could include Rose Ceremony, Sand Ceremony, Hand Fasting and Jumping the Broom, often couples choose all of these!  I have even written Cocktail Rituals and Chocolate Ceremonies to make the wedding as personal and unique as you are.  Part of the fun is choosing which ones suit you the best! 

Hand fasting is a wedding ritual in which the couples’ hands are tied together as a symbol of their lives being joined together. The hand fasting cord is made up of different ribbons that symbolise the qualities and elements that they would like to invite into their relationship and affirmations for their marriage, such as;

Red Passion, fulfilling potential, creativity, mutual empowerment and  vitality.

Your words dispel all the care in the world and make me happy
They are as necessary to me now as sunlight and air.
Your words are my food, your breath my wine
You are everything to me.
– Sarah Bernhardt

“It was an absolute pleasure to have Sarah as part of our wedding day. As soon as we met her we knew she would do an excellent job and would guide us through giving us one less thing to worry about. Many of our guests commented on what a wonderful and refreshing service it was, so personalised for us. We really feel that Sarah’s input added something very special to our day.”

My wife and I were introduced to Sarah by a mutual friend. Following our first meeting to discuss our wedding ceremony, we knew that Sarah would be perfect to deliver exactly what we wanted. Sarah took time to get to know us so that she could provide us with a very personal and bespoke service. Our ceremony was wonderful, beyond all our expectations. We have been inundated with comments from our guests commending Sarah on what a relaxing, enjoyable and memorable experience the ceremony was. Thank you Sarah……beautiful and perfect in every way.
