Testimonials and Feedback

Family Blessing

On a beautiful day in August I was excited to perform a Naming and Blessing ceremony for the Gould family near Exeter.  It was even more special as the ceremony had been postponed many times due to Covid 19.

Michelle and Richard had asked me to write a ceremony to name their three children and also to celebrate and bless their family in front of their guests.

Michelle sent me these lovely words:

Sarah was an absolutely perfect Celebrant for our daughter’s naming ceremony.  As soon as we met Sarah (which was via Zoom, due to Covid) we liked her straight away and knew she would deliver a wonderful ceremony for us and we were absolutely right.  In addition to Sarah’s experience, she is kind and caring and it is clear that she genuinely wants to create an event that is perfect for her clients.  Sarah gave us loads of elements to consider and also welcomed our ideas, so as to make a truly personal and unique ceremony.  Before the event, we had a few calls with Sarah to go through details and so, on the day, we could relax knowing that Sarah had everything under control.  Extra details like being given a copy of the final ceremony and certificate in a keepsake folder added to the experience.  We are so grateful for Sarah’s involvement and had lots of positive comments from our guests.  We would happily involve Sarah in any future events we have and would have no hesitation in recommending her.  An absolutely first-class service.


Woodland Wedding Testimonials

Selena and Mark celebrated their wedding by the Oak Tree at Middle Coombe Farm near Tiverton.

After the legal ceremony in the barn, a fiddler led the happy couple followed by all their guests up to the Oak Tree for a special ceremony to bind their family together.

Selena had made the Hand Fasting cord from five ribbons so symbolise the five members of their new family and two of their children tied the knot – baby Sam was too little but gurgled happily!

Selena Aylett wrote:

“I must say a HUGE thank you for your ceremony. People described it as “magical”. So many people loved it and they all said you were great. Thanks for making it so special.”

May the blessing of each of us be felt by you.

Go now to walk the ways of the world together, and may your days be good and long upon the earth.

Funeral Feedback and Testimonials

I am always so pleased to receive feedback from ceremonies as it helps me to improve as a Celebrant and to offer families the perfect ceremony for them.

I received these emails and Thank You Cards from families recently:

I just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful service you put together for dad, everyone commented on how lovely and personal it was and mum has asked me to book you for hers!!

Just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of my family for creating a very special day for the funeral.  I couldn’t have wished for anything better.

Thank you so much for the way you conducted the service today it was lovely. Although you didn’t know my mum you made it with such love and knowing. If my partner and I ever get to marry you’ll be the one to ask !!!

I just want to say thank you for the lovely funeral ceremony which you gave recently for my wife. It certainly helped to lift my spirits on what would have been a very sad day otherwise. Several people were watching online and I have had a lot of comments to say how much they enjoyed being able to take part.  Many thanks

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for the service for our wonderful granddad.  You really were extremely lovely and conducted it beautifully and as we wanted.

Funeral Feedback and Testimonials

I have received such wonderful emails recently from funerals I have written and performed for families.  It has been especially difficult for them all throughout Lockdown.

Thank you so much for the lovely Funeral Service for our father.  It was a wonderfully positive service that was so individual, and perfectly tailored to how we wanted to say “Goodbye” to our dear Dad. Everyone said how touching it was; and what a beautiful service it had been.  Thank you again for all your sympathy and understanding, and for the support, care and consideration you gave to us at this difficult time.  With grateful thanks

Thank you Sarah from the bottom of my heart for organising mum’s lovely celebration service. Thanks to you that is what it was, a celebration of a long and interesting life. Everything was perfect.  One friend was saying it was warm ,honest and real just like her and several saying how good you were, even one saying that he wanted exactly that kind of send off.  You are a very special lady.

I cannot thank you enough for conducting such a beautiful ceremony for my mum. You spoke of her as if you were her friend. Your voice is so soothing and settling. Everyone said how lovely the service was and how good you’re. Just know In moments of utter grief having a person like you who made this a lot less stressful for me means a lot to me.

Just a note to say thank you for such a lovely celebration of  life yesterday. Everyone who attended thought it was really wonderful and that you were such a good Celebrant. We had a very good get together here at home and it was a really happy day even if was a goodbye. Thank you so much for all your help and suggestions.

Thank you for making my husband’s service so special. He had a great send off with family and friends. I am sure he would have been chuffed. He always liked a good “do”. The service was beautiful and everything that had to be said was said. I am sure in normal circumstances the crematorium would have been packed. Thank you once again.

Heartfelt Ceremony and Testimonials

Just thought I would drop you a line to say how amazing you were at my nieces wedding yesterday.  You held us all in the palm of your hands with your wonderful personality and I felt secure in the knowledge that the whole ceremony was going to be perfect…and it was!  It was so lovely for us all to have a part in the Flower Ceremony and my brother felt proud to be able to tie the hand fasting knot.  You are a special person and I would recommend you highly.  Thank you for such a heartfelt ceremony.

Family Feedback and Testimonials

Families always give me insightful and excellent feedback after each funeral so that I can improve my service to them.  Here are a few that I received recently.

Sarah Chapman the Celebrant, who carried out the service on my behalf, was absolutely brilliant.  I don’t think I could ask for, or get, any better.  It is my intention when my time comes to have the same sort of service and Sarah.

Sarah was lovely and caring and simply the best person we could have hoped for to help us through.  While it was a civil ceremony. she ensured that it was conducted in a respectful manner, especially the committal of the coffin.  Relatives and friends who attended said that it was the best service they had ever attended and my husband’s parents, who are in their 80s, have expressed a desire for similar when the time comes.

The lady concerned (Sarah) was excellent dealing with the situation in a friendly, kindly and sympathetic manner.  We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

It has been my pleasure to make sure that each ceremony is individual to each family and conducted their way.


I created and performed a funeral ceremony for a wonderful family in November last year.  The tribute was so full of humour and love that it warmed us all on a very windy, cold day.

“Sarah was very sensitive, caring and her approach was completely appropriate for a time of great vulnerability.  She has a good sense of humour and made me feel very comfortable given that we had never met before.  I would thoroughly recommend her.”

Naming Ceremony Testimonials
On a wet windy day in Wembury, Devon, family and friends gathered together to celebrate naming a gorgeous little girl with a huge smile.  The afternoon was full of laughter and some tears followed by wonderful cakes and sandwiches and, of course, a great cup of tea!
Her parents wrote this:
Sarah was fantastic in helping us to make our daughter’s naming ceremony a really special and personal event. She met with us beforehand to discuss ideas and pull the ceremony together, then provided clear direction and a sense of formality on the day. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the event and we were very grateful to Sarah for achieving this. – Thank you from the Walker family, Modbury”


Funeral Wishes Testimonials

To make sure that your loved ones KNOW what you would like for your Funeral, I have designed a Funeral Wishes document to give to your Next of Kin. I helped Jane and Gerry to create their Funeral Wishes and they have sent a lovely letter to me saying thank you:senior_couple_01

Gerry and I would like to express our gratitude to Sarah Chapman for the sensitive, caring way she guided us through our “Funeral Wishes”.

So many things we hadn’t even thought about.

Definitely a very worthwhile document to leave behind so that the pressure is taken away from the family at a very difficult time.

She gave us the time we needed to make sure all our wishes were included.

 Sarah, with her gentle humour and wonderful personality, made something none of us want to think about an experience we could face.

The family now have a useful document that will hopefully make passing a celebration of life.

Thank you so much.

Renewal of Vows Testimonials

 From the moment we met Sarah from our prewedding meet up I knew she would be the right person to conduct our Wedding Vow Renewal.  Being terminally ill means that is was so important to get the wording just right.  Making sure there wasn’t talk of the future but talk of everything we have achieved.  Sarah’s words were moving yet upbeat which is exactly the type of people we are.

Thank you for making our special day one that we will remember forever.

Naomi and Graham



Simply the Best

Eva Cassidy’s beautiful voice rang out at a recent funeral for a well loved local man.  His family chose Fields of Gold, Autumn Leaves and Somewhere over the Rainbow.  The chapel was packed and my final words were,

“When I asked his family three words that best described him they replied;


The family wrote these words to me:

Sarah was absolutely perfect in every possible way.  The service she gave was exactly what we had wanted, she read our eulogies perfectly and compassionately and treated us with empathy and sincere warmth.  We have passed Sarah’s contact details to several people who said it was one of the loveliest funeral services they had ever attended.  A sad day for us has now become a happier memory.

Beach Ceremony Testimonials
On a warm sunny afternoon at Pentewan Sands, St Austell, Mark and Lisa celebrated their 10th Wedding Anniversary together.  Surrounded by family and friends, three little girls in white dresses entranced and all the boys digging in the sand, they made their vows to each other, exchanged rings and signed the certificate.I had asked Mark and Lisa the secret to their successful marriage and they told me that they had no idea!  However they asked their guests to send me their opinions and I shared those with everyone there on the beach.  Much laughter and tears later we raised our Mason jars full of bubbly to the happy couple.
“We want to thank you for producing such a wonderful ceremony,  everyone was completely relaxed and enjoyed every minute of it.  You were professional but so warm and friendly which everyone commented on.  I’m sure if there is ever another ceremony being planned then you would be the first person any of us would think of to conduct it.”
Thats Life
The Kings Street Funeral Chapel was full with standing room only when the life of this lovely lady was celebrated.
That’s Life – Frank Sinatra was played as a slide show of photographs of her life appeared on the screen and I read a wonderful, warm tribute to her written by her beloved family.
I just wanted to send you an quick note to thank you for all your help with arranging the simageservice for my Grandma today and also for the warm way that you delivered all the messages.  It was a sad day for me, but also great to share some of those memories and lovely photos of her!





Kitley House Renewal of Vows Testimonials


Kitley House Hotel was the venue for a very special Renewal of Vows ceremony. I was honoured to be asked to conduct their ceremony and delighted to join in with the Afternoon Tea afterwards and chat to their family and guests. Sharon and Andy wrote to me a few days later:

Dear Sarah

Thank you so much for conducting our renewal of vows last weekend.  It was beautifully put together and everyone was really moved.  The flower ceremony worked a treat and your sensitivity and professionalism impressed everyone.

I was glad you could help us with the cream tea, we were all fit to burst afterwards!  

Thanks again Sarah IT WAS BRILLIANT  

Love Sharon and Andy

Sharpham Burial Testimonials

It was a cold, crisp sunny day late last year when we met at Sharpham House to celebrate the life of an amazing lady.   Her daughter read this heartfelt poem:


I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. 

I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. 

I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times, and laughing times, and bright and sunny days. 

I’d like tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun 

Of happy memories that I leave, when life is done. 


We then made our way to the Burial ground to say goodbye as we listened to the birds sing and watch the sun sparkle on the River Dart as it wound its way past the vineyard.  Her family scattered rose petals on her wicker coffin in memory of all the love they had shared over the years.

Using a Funeral Celebrant helped us as a family to make the right decisions and choices for my mother’s funeral at a time when everything was overwhelming.

Sarah also gave us extra support at a very stressful time, for which I am truly grateful, and we were able to plan my mother’s funeral in a way that did not feel rushed or hasty.

Sarah helped to make the day a celebration of my mother’s life, which was exactly what my father wanted and my mother would have loved.  

We had lovely comments from friends and family about the venue, service (poetry and music), the natural burial ground and committal, lunch and sharing of memories – all of which Sarah guided us through.

With hindsight I would have involved Sarah much earlier on.


Funeral Candle Lighting

“The service Sarah conducted was truly memorable for all the right reasons. She spoke sincerely and sympathetically. Better than any expectations. She always seemed to be available for us and favourable comments were made by all attending. I would recommend her without hesitation.”

Happy Memories

Josie and her mum arrived in a horse drawn carriage and she exchanged rings and vows with Robin under the oak tree at Higher Eggbeer Farm near Exeter. A unique and personal ceremony for a wonderful couple.

“Thank you Sarah, that was all beautiful. Thanks for a lovely wedding! It was amazing and we have very happy memories.
We both had the best times of our lives X”



Pebbles and Flowers Testimonials

Such moving words as we celebrated the life of this lovely man.

They both regarded this time as their “Happy laughter years”.  As they both  loved their garden, they would bring back plants and pebbles back from their trips and he would place them in the garden for them to admire and reminisce about their holidays.  There was always so much laughter as they scrambled over beaches collecting the chosen stones.

His partner wrote these words:ce1dcbf8376bf8e552af9b5364fceedd

From the beginning to the end I could not have wished for it better. Sarah even took me up the few steps to place a flower on the coffin and then she helped me back again.  The celebrant was very good right to the end and I have told so many people how good it all was that, when my time of leaving this world, I told my son that I want the same celebrant, Sarah, to do my funeral.

So many memories and so much laughter.




Celebrate their Love


Just a quick message to say a huge thank you for conducting our ceremony back in July. The day was more magical than we ever imagined it would be and writing our own vows etc. gave us the freedom to create a ceremony that was true to us as a couple. Our family and friends all complimented your delivery and we would like to thank you for helping us put the day together. We feel the ceremony perfectly reflected our history, gave us the opportunity to celebrate our love and solidified our commitment.

South Milton Wedding Testimonials

Amy and Robbie celebrated their wedding at The Barn, overlooking South Milton beach in the summer.  They released balloons at the end to cheers and applause from their many guests.  An amazing wedding full of laughter and tears as the sun light shimmered and sparkled on the sea.

We have gathered here to grant this couple all our best wishes and are about to set these balloons free in trust that all these wishes will be granted.  Each balloon contains wild flower seeds which will grow where ever the balloon falls.

Amy wrote to me:
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for conducting such an amazing ceremony on Saturday! 
We have had such lovely feedback from our guests about how different and interesting it was from anything else they had seen and also so personal and emotional.
It went perfectly and we only have you to thank for that.



Bears was the theme for the celebration of this amazing lady.  Her family sent me this feedback:

Sarah did a really excellent job.  She was very helpful with the choice of poems and other sensitive wording.  She was also very kind and presented the ceremony perfectly, she did us proud.

If ever there is a tomorrow when we are not together
There is something you must always remember
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think
But the most important thing is, even though we are apart,
I’ll always be with you

Haldon Belvedere Testimonials

Bryan and I wanted to thank you so so much for performing our wedding ceremony. It was the most incredible , amazing day

The ceremony was everything we could hoped for and was truly beautiful, that was absolutely down to your planning, development and sensitive guidance for the proceedings. 

Helen and Bryan celebrated their wedding with their family and friends at Halden Belvedere near Exeter. Bryan had written a poem to his beloved Helen and I was privileged to read it on the day. The Flower Ceremony bound their families together and, after the Hand Fasting, Bryan and Helen read their Vows to each other with tears and laughter.

A bespoke ceremony written with love for a very special couple.


Bring Me Sunshine

This amazing lady was 99 years old and the ceremony lasted an hour as all her family wanted me to share happy memories of their Mum, grandma and Great grandma.  We left to “Bring Me Sunshine” as she adored Morecambe and Wise!

Sarah was fantastic and showed genuine interest and compassion throughout.  She was amazing and made everything so easy and stress free as well as giving an accurate and sensitive account of our Mums life.  I was completely satisfied with how the service went and I couldn’t have chosen a better person in Sarah.

One of my extended family members said she was so impressed she was going to change her own funeral plans. 




Anastasia and Martin celebrated their Wedding at Bovey Castle witnessed by their family and friends who were amazed when the rings were delivered by an OWL!

I look forward to receiving more photographs.

Thank you so much for making our wedding the most memorable day of our life. It was PERFECT and it couldn’t have been done without your hard work.  We continue to receive comments from guests about how amazing everything was. Thank you for reading our vows and  bringing tears to so many people’s eyes. It was such a special day and we will cherish the memories for a long time. We will send pictures for the “portfolio” when we get them but didn’t want to delay any longer sending our gratitude! Martin and I are eternally grateful.

Crossing the Bar

I received a thank you from a family whose mother loved the sea.  They had chosen this beautiful poem by Tennyson as it was her favourite.  We sang the hymn  Praise, my soul, the King of Heaven as her family placed their flowers in memory of such a beautiful person.

A brief note to formally thank you for officiating at Mum’s funeral on Monday

We were all very pleased with the service and I think Mum would have been too !

I greatly valued your help and support with the planning and we are all indebted to you for your professionalism and skill on the day

Well done and thank you !

Crossing the Barimages

Sunset and evening star,

      And one clear call for me!

And may there be no moaning of the bar,

      When I put out to sea,

   But such a tide as moving seems asleep,

      Too full for sound and foam,

When that which drew from out the boundless deep

      Turns again home.

   Twilight and evening bell,

      And after that the dark!

And may there be no sadness of farewell,

      When I embark;

   For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place

      The flood may bear me far,

I hope to see my Pilot face to face

      When I have crost the bar.

Cambodian/Devon Renewal of Vows Testimonials

Alin and Mark met in Phnom Penh in Cambodia in 2007 and when Mark first saw her, all he could think about was her beautiful smile.  Three childrenhave brought joy and happiness to them both and they look forward to sharing many more happy family times in the future.


They decorated their ceremony table in the traditional Cambodian way with fruit, flowers and candles. Amanda and Monica threw rose petals to lead their mum down the aisle and their son, David, was an excellent Ring Bearer.

After lighting three candles they asked their guests to bring forward red roses to place in a vase to represent love, respect and romance – affirmations for their relationship.

The ceremony also included Hand Fasting – Alin made a beautiful cord in blue, red and white – the colours of the Union Jack but also the Cambodian flag!  She wove in birthstones for their children.

Mark’s mother, Jane, wrote a heartfelt thank you the next day.

Wow! Just wanted to say another big thank you.  The ceremony blew everyone away especially the touches that you brought to it, bringing the Cambodian and British cultures together in such a lovely way.  There were quite a few surreptitious tears too.  Everyone also loved the thoughts about Alin’s family and those no longer with us.  All in all, it was a marvellous day, meaningful, emotional, poignant, ecstatic and fun.  Everything and more than Mark and Alin had hoped for.

If you ever need a reference, count me in.  I thought you were totally wonderful.  
With much love from all of us

PS  Amanda is available for petal collections now!

Wonderful Testimonials

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!


Sand Ceremony Testimonials

Sara brought sand from Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia where she spent a lot of her time before moving to England.

Jon brought sand from Teignmouth, Devon and is where Jonathan and Sara’s new life in England began.

As the two containers of sand poured into the vase, the separate colours of sand blend into a new colour. Sara and Jon have now blended their families into a new family, as they start their journey in marriage, loving and strong as husband and wife, as inseparable as these grains of sand.

This is just a quick email to say a massive THANK YOU for celebrating our wedding renewal last Saturday. It was a truly beautiful ceremony and one that we will remember with as much fondness as our Australia one. Our guests continue to comment on how lovely it was and how much they enjoyed being a part of it.

Sara & Jonathan Dunn 14th January 2017

Glad That I Live

We raised the roof with this glorious hymn at the Crematorium as we celebrated the life of a local lady who was nearly 90 years old.  Her daughter wrote these words:

I was very happy with the service the celebrant provided, both in coming to our home and the actual funeral.  I had not had to arrange a funeral before and was very grateful for the help she gave me.



Glad That I Live 

Glad that I live am I;
That the sky is blue;
Glad for the country lanes,
And the fall of dew.

After the sun, the rain,
After the rain the sun;
This is the way of life,
Till the work be done.

All that we need to do,
Be we low or high,
Is to see that we grow,
Nearer to God on high.

But we’re absolute beginners

But if my love is your love

We’re certain to succeed

Renewal of Vows Blessing Testimonials

Testimonials for a Wonderful Ceremony

So lovely to find this in my inbox today!  It was a pleasure to write and perform a ceremony for such a wonderful man.

Just wanted to thank you so much for creating such a beautiful service for my Uncle.

I really appreciate your approach to funeral services namely “celebrating” someone’s life as opposed to commiserating their loss, this results in a lighter feeling service which is much more positively focused.

It was lovely to meet you today & thank you again, I thought you were wonderful!!

Musical Funeral

I always go to the family’s home so that we can share a cup of tea, they can explain the photo on the mantlepiece and have an ordinary conversation about planning this extraordinary occasion.  It is always lovely to receive feedback from a ceremony and confirm I have done a good job!  We listened to his favourite composer, George Gershwin, playing I Got Rhythm as he definitely had lots of rhythm!

Naming Ceremonies Feedback

I love Naming Ceremonies as I get to know the families and children beforehand and together we can create a perfect and unique ceremony to celebrate their child’s name and promises for the future.  I also love receiving feedback from my ceremonies and here are a few Testimonials:

I approached Sarah Chapman after needing a private celebrant for my daughters naming do. Sarah helped me by reassuring me on the phone that it was something she could and would love to do. We met up and discussed the plans, Sarah is kind, dedicated and just over all a lovely lady. The result was amazing! We had a beautiful day with our friends and family and Sarah kept it all together perfectly!! I found Sarah to be so helpful and I would without a doubt recommend her to anyone, thanks again Sarah”

Ruth and Dave

Sarah was fantastic in helping us to make our daughter’s naming ceremony a really special and personal event. She met with us beforehand to discuss ideas and pull the ceremony together, then provided clear direction and a sense of formality on the day. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the event and we were very grateful to Sarah for achieving this. – Thank you from the Walker family,

We were so pleased to have Sarah as the Celebrant for our son’s Naming Day.  Sarah was friendly and professional all the way through, helping us to understand the role of a celebrant, develop our plans for the Naming Day and gave us lots of useful ideas for us to work with.  We were able to make the day really personal and just as we wanted.

Sarah was also our Knight in Shining Armour and saved the day when our helium balloons went flat on the morning of the ceremony.  Sarah rushed out to buy us some more, even though it was a Sunday, so that we could end the ceremony just as we planned.

I couldn’t recommend Sarah highly enough as a Celebrant, she made our special day really special!”

Testimonials from a Family

I received some lovely heartfelt feedback recently from a family who had lost their mum.

Sarah was wonderful, easy to talk to, empathetic and had some lovely suggestions for readings for the service. We were still in shock following my mum’s death. Sarah was so helpful at this stressful time for us and from the disjointed information we provided she put together a wonderful service which was exactly what we wanted and perfect for my mum. Thank you.









It’s knowing where your roots are
That sometimes gives you wings.
It’s knowing there’s a place to go
To escape the awful things.
It’s knowing there will always be
At least one person on your side
Who’ll listen to your problems
And go along with you for the ride.
It’s comfort and it’s heartache
It’s pride and disappointment too.
It’s holding on and letting go
Cherishing old and accepting new.
It’s waiting for the next little one
To come and steal your heart
And wondering how being called Nanny
Is such a warm and fuzzy start.
It’s watching time go racing by
days, then weeks, then years.
It’s missing those who go too soon
To mix your laughter with your tears.
It’s remembering and forgetting
Loving and arguing too.
It was God’s plan from the start
And it’s still holding true.
So hold each day like precious crystal
That might break if you let go
For roots and wings are compatible things
Make sure your children know..

To unite their families I performed a Candle Ceremony.  I invited both mothers to come forward to light two candles representing the love and support of their families.  I then invited Jiapeng and Joyce to take the candles and light the centre candle.  As the one light cannot be divided so they would be united from this day forth and go forward into a shining lifetime together.

Joyce and her mother made the Hand Fasting cord together and all the guests placed pink roses, a symbol of grace, joy, admiration and happiness, in the vase along with all of their hopes, best wishes and love for them both.

From this day forward,

You shall not walk alone.

My heart will be your shelter,

And my arms will be your home.

Jiapeng and Joyce sent me their photographs with a lovely note:

Jiapeng and I would like to thank you very much Sarah. You have been very helpful since our first phone call and meeting. You used your experience to help plan the whole wedding ceremony. It was a perfect day and everyone enjoyed it so much!

Words cannot express the gratitude we all feel for the wonderful service you provided for us as a family and the way in which you put together beautiful words to sum up our mum.
The celebration of her life will help us to erase the final painful stage of her life and remind us of the 86 good years she had .
Afterwards at the Passage House Hotel, everyone said what a lovely tribute it had been.  I had put together a photograph album of her life for them all to enjoy and remind them of the good times and what a special lady she had been.
Thank you 

Laughing Gran

I was privileged to perform the funeral ceremony recently of a lady I had known for a few years.  She was always smiling with a twinkle in her eye!

As we were only allowed to have 10 people in the chapel, her ceremony was live-streamed to family and friends around the world.

There was lots of smiling – and tears – and her family agreed it was a beautiful celebration of her life.  One of her granddaughters had brought along this amazing tribute to their Laughing Gran!


Hand Fasting Testimonials

When I first met Sue and Graham they told me they wanted a ceremony that reflected their personalities and was full of joy and laughter. As you can see, between us we achieved this and much more.

After lighting a candle in memory of their loved ones, we passed two ribbons around the circle of guests –

Gold for the masculine energy and represents creativity, financial richness and Magical power and Silver for the female energy and symbolises emotional stability, dreams and protection from negative energies.

Their rings were threaded onto the ribbons and blessed by family and friends

Their close friend Tony tied the knot before Sue and Graham made their vows to each other.

“May the blessing of each of us be felt by you.

Go now to walk the ways of the world together,

and may your days be good and long upon the earth”.

Thank you so much for conducting our wedding ceremony, it was perfect in every way, thanks to your patience, kindness and guidance.

You took the time to get to know us and understand exactly what we wanted, making the ceremony so beautiful and personal to us.

The day was filled with so much love and laughter. Our guests enjoyed being involved in the “circle of ring blessing” and loved that we shared our own vows, both funny and emotional with them following the handfasting.

Many said that they had never been to a wedding quite like ours, using words like unique, beautiful and wonderful.

Thank you again for a perfect day.

Love and Blessings

Sue & Graham


Celebration of Life Testimonials

I received this lovely note from the family of a wonderful lady.  It is heartwarming that I can help families celebrate their loved ones lives and create a ceremony that is personal and unique to them.


Naming Ceremony for Twins Testimonials

I recently created and performed a Naming ceremony for gorgeous twins – one boy and one girl.

As they had held hands since they were born, I also performed a Hand Fasting ceremony using cords

Orange for good luck and good fortune, yellow for learning and knowledge and green for balance and peace.  All of these elements that their parents would like to bring to their children’s lives.

I received a beautiful thank you letter:

I just wanted to write to say thank you so much. The ceremony was so perfect and exactly what I had imagined. There were some lovely comments from the guests about the feel of the day, and the lovely words that made the naming really special. People even approved of the length!! 

Seriously though, you really made it feel very individual and spiritual, without feeling contrived or forced. I now have fantastic memories! Thank you so much!

Lily of the Valley Wedding Testimonials

Flowers are important to Chris and Louise and they chose Lily of the Valley for their ceremony.  Apart from being one of Lou’s favourite flowers, Lily of the Valley is the May birth flower and it is said to mean “Return of Happiness”  It is also said that to hand Lily of the Valley to your loved one shows that your relationship is finally complete.  A beautiful ceremony for a very special couple – and their gorgeous dogs, Izzy and Dexter – at Endsleigh House Hotel near Tavistock, Devon.

Callington Gospel Choir are an excellent choir and sung Lovely Day for their Entrance Music and closed the ceremony with Happy Day.  Best Wishes and much love to the happy couple.

Lou and Chris wrote:

Thank you for making our day so special. It was a wonderful romantic ceremony and we were so happy with the words. All our guests commented on how lovely it was. I would highly recommend Sarah for your special days.


Goodbye Grandad

I was proud to perform the funeral of a very popular local man recently. The Chapel was full and the memories shared afterwards were full of humour and warmth.  I received this thank you card today from his wife.

Dear Sarah

My sincere and heartfelt thanks for such a beautiful service you gave for my beloved husband.  Our relatives and friends were deeply touched.

The grandchildren chose this lovely poem for their beloved grandad:


Poem: Goodbye Grandad

So heaven has received another angel

The night sky another star

Your life has become a loving memory

I know you will never be far.

I know you are watching over me

As my life goes on

I will treasure the memories I have of you

I cant believe you’re gone.

You were a loving caring grandad 

You were there for me a lot

You will always hold a place in my heart

A loving treasured spot.

You were really one in a million

A cut above the rest

All that knew you would agree 

You simply were the best.

So grandad I will say goodbye

I love and miss you with all my heart

But as long as I have my loving memories

We will never be too far apart.

Sarah Harrison

Clifftop Wedding Testimonials

A glorious day for Aimee and Tom’s wedding as I performed a Flower Ceremony as part of their personal Wedding Ceremony.

They chose pink peonies for a happy marriage, white roses for new beginnings, purity and charm and blue hydrangeas for gratitude.  These were the elements that they would like to bring to their marriage.  Family and friends placed their flowers in the vase along with all of their hopes, best wishes and love for them both.

They wrote a beautiful email afterwards with their photographs and these words:

We wanted to say a big thank you for the incredible ceremony, so many people commented on how lovely it was.  Thanks again

Maggie’s Ceremony Testimonials

I received wonderful feedback from my friend Chris Dew recently.  I felt pleased and privileged to perform her mother’s funeral ceremony and I find it hard to believe that my relationship with her lovely family has lasted for over 30 years!  At the end of the ceremony I handed out paper hearts of forget me not seeds so that year after year the flowers will blossom in memory of Maggie.

I have known Sarah for many years so l had no hesitation in asking her to conduct the service for our final farewell  to my mother. Sarah is passionate  about her work and she sensitively and carefully guided us through what should be included in our service. She had a wealth of ideas to make the service personal and meaningful. 

Relatives and friends attending the service were thoroughly impressed by Sarah’s compassion and professionalism and all felt the service was a perfect way to say goodbye to my mother and celebrate her life.
Wedding Testimonials

I received this beautiful letter all the way from America today!  Mike and Maryam wrote:

Thank you so much for making our special day so unique, intimate and tailored to us as a couple.  Everyone raved about what a beautiful ceremony it was!

Thank you for Everything

I received this lovely message on my Facebook page recently after their mum’s funeral:

Sarah has been there for my family on two occasions now. She guided us and supported us through the funeral ceremony for our Father in  and again recently, when we lost our beloved Mum in the thick of the 2020 lockdown crisis!

Sarah is calming and thoughtful. She knows the local Funeral Directors well and they work seamlessly together to guide you through the fog and fear of losing someone.

Thank you Sarah, for everything!


Hand Fasting by the Sea Testimonials

Sarah was a fantastic help from the first time we contacted her. She offered great guidance and advice and helped us create a ceremony that suited us. Sarah conducted a beautiful ceremony that we will never forget. Many of our guests commented on how lovely and engaging the ceremony was. We are thoroughly thrilled. Thank you!

War Memories Testimonials
A small funeral on a hot day in September of a man in his 90s who had been one of the first to land in Normandy on D Day 6th June 1944.  I spent a lovely couple of hours with his son talking about life and families.  A memorable day.
A brief note to thank you very much for the service you conducted for my father at Exeter yesterday. We were a very small congregation, but your words and delivery made the event feel personal and special to all of us, and you balanced the inevitable sadness of the day with some real warmth and some amusing touches. We all felt that you struck absolutely the right note of respect and affection; my father was not an easy person to please, but one of his grandchildren said afterwards: “Even Grandpa would have been pleased with that.”
Personally I’d also like to thank you for the kindness and tact that you showed me when we talked about my father. It was a helpful part of the whole grieving process.
The nature of these events and the fact that we don’t have other family in the area means that our paths are unlikely to cross in future; but you made the day memorable for us, and we are grateful.
Bovey Castle Wedding Testimonials
The wedding of Christina and Chris took place on Saturday at the beautiful Bovey Castle.  Guests arrived from as far away as Bermuda, Sweden, Netherlands, Canada, Scotland and USA.   The bride’s close friend  sang “How Long Will I love you” (Ellie Goulding) with the backing of a string quartet before the couple exchanged rings and said their own moving Vows to each other.

I received a lovely email today:
I wanted to take the opportunity to say the warmest thank you to you for the lovely ceremony you wrote and conducted for us on Saturday. We had such a wonderful time and it was really emotional in all the right ways. 
I can’t begin to thank you for how special you made our day and we had so many lovely words from our guests about how beautiful the ceremony was. 
You will forever have a special place in our heart and I have attached a photo I think is beautiful of the three of us.
Love and regards
Chris and Stina

Feel No Guilt in Laughter

Just received Feedback from a lovely family about their beloved father’s ceremony:

“Sarah assisted my family and I in the creation of a ceremony in celebration of my father’s life with the utmost professionalism.  Her gentle probing and compassion helped us all tease out special memories and ideas for a most memorable and fitting farewell.  I received many compliments “a perfect goodbye” and “the ceremony had your dad written all over it” are two of many that coc64e409670c792bed51466a58171a098me to mind.  Thank you Sarah.”

The Closing music was Morecambe and Wise singing “Bring Me Sunshine”

Poem: Feel No Guilt in Laughter

Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care.

Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.

You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.

He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.

So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,

The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.

Let memories surround you. A word someone may say

Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,

That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,

And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.

For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart

And he will live forever locked safely within your heart.


Woodland Wedding Testimonials

Phil owns a wood near Linkinhorne, Cornwall and asked me to perform a wedding ceremony there to celebrate 18 years of being together with his beloved Shari.

At this point on their journey together they wanted to take this time, in this beautiful place with family and friends, to acknowledge and celebrate the journey so far and also to look ahead.

Their guests collected flowers and leaves from the woodland and I asked them all to come forward and place them in the wooden platter (made by Phil) as a symbol of their unity.

The Circle of Blessing Ceremony had two ribbons, one was green for growth, healing, home and peace. The other ribbon was brown for stability, protection of the household and to strengthen their relationship.  Their family rings were passed around the circle for their family and friends to bless.

Phil and Shari exchanged rings and I performed a Hand Fasting ceremony to seal their love.

“Shari and Phil, look to all your tomorrows with sustained hope and a strong commitment to your marriage.  May those of you who have witnessed this ceremony continue to support them, honour and respect their relationship and wish them joy in their future.”

We drank a toast to the happy couple out of wooden goblets lovingly made by Phil from trees in his wood.

Thanks again for helping to make our day very individual and special.

We were very happy – even in the rain!

Shari and Phil

Autumn Leaves

A windy wet day for the ceremony of a popular man took place in Exeter Crematorium.  If you have never heard Eva Cassidy sing Autumn Leaves please do so now.  It is one of the most moving songs I have heard.  His daughter wrote to me:

ec4e4c8dbfd4f6d6a16c1181f9f4f37c I did just want to thank you myself for the most wonderful service you gave for my dear Dad.
There was not a dry eye amongst our friends and family, many of whom said it was one of the loveliest services they had been to. So thank you for making our words heartfelt and extra special and for the beautiful poems you included. It could not have been more perfect and exactly
 what we had wanted.  They chose this poem to remember their beloved husband and father.


I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. 

I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times, and laughing times, and bright and sunny days. 

I’d like tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun 

Of happy memories that I leave, when life is done. 


Torre Abbey Wedding Testimonials

I received this email from Colin and Bonita after I performed their wedding ceremony at Torre Abbey in Torquay.  Even though it rained all day the couple glowed with love and happiness throughout the ceremony and the rest of the day.  It was a privilege to be a part of their day.

They included a Rose Ceremony binding their families together:

A single rose has always meant only one thing.  To give a rose is to say “I love you”  Please take these roses and exchange them.  In so doing, your first gift to each other will be the gift of love.images

My wife Bonita Matthews 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.  


It was a cold, crisp sunny day late last year when we met at Sharpham House to celebrate the life of an amazing lady.   Her daughter read this heartfelt poem:


I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. 

I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. 

I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times, and laughing times, and bright and sunny days. 

I’d like tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun 

Of happy memories that I leave, when life is done. 


We then made our way to the Burial ground to say goodbye as we listened to the birds sing and watch the sun sparkle on the River Dart as it wound its way past the vineyard.  Her family scattered rose petals on her wicker coffin in memory of all the love they had shared over the years.

Using a Funeral Celebrant helped us as a family to make the right decisions and choices for my mother’s funeral at a time when everything was overwhelming.

Sarah also gave us extra support at a very stressful time, for which I am truly grateful, and we were able to plan my mother’s funeral in a way that did not feel rushed or hasty.

Sarah helped to make the day a celebration of my mother’s life, which was exactly what my father wanted and my mother would have loved.  

We had lovely comments from friends and family about the venue, service (poetry and music), the natural burial ground and committal, lunch and sharing of memories – all of which Sarah guided us through.

With hindsight I would have involved Sarah much earlier on.

Chapel of Love Testimonials

Laura and Adam’s wedding day at Muddifords Court Country House, Willand, Cullompton was glorious.  Laura walked down the aisle on her father’s arm to “Going To The Chapel Of Love” by the Dixie Cups and their vows were heartfelt and beautiful.  They brought a tear to the eyes oColAdam&Laura.MattAustin-572f all their family and friends.  After blessing their rings and lighting a candle as a symbol of their unity, Adam kissed his bride.  As Laura wrote to me:


“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.”


I performed a ceremony for a wonderful lady recently and her husband chose 5 pieces of music and a hymn.  He listened to each one and checked that all the words were correct then sent them to me to put in the Order of Ceremony.  As they meant so much to them both, everyone could then read the words when listening to the music.  It was a double slot at the Crematorium so there was no rush and I could read his beautiful tribute to his beloved wife.  Her daughter made all the 80 guests a sunflower to wear as it was her favourite flower.  The sun shone through the windows and reflected the bright yellow we were all wearing.  Truly an uplifting and glorious occasion.  Her family sent me this thank you:
We wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge “Thank You”, once again, for helping us to give Mum the celebration we felt she deserved and  would have chosen herself. Dad, myself, and my sisters, felt you conducted the service with great warmth and sensitivity and we also got many positive comments from other guests. 
This has been, as it is for so many, a momentous occasion for us and your contribution to helping ease us through the difficult process of the official “Farewell” has been significant and so gratefully received. 
We wish you all the best and know that other families will benefit from your kindness in the future. 
Cremation Testimonials
I have just received some wonderful feedback from a family about the funeral I performed for their father.  I was given 2 days from beginning to end  as the family were only over from France for a short time.  After the initial visit we had regular email contact, I printed out the Ceremony for the 5 family members who are deaf and the day went well.  It even stopped raining!
Just a quick email to express my sincere thanks and gratitude for the excellent service and arrangements for the cremation of my father on Friday. Thank you for being flexible and understanding. For me it could not have gone better.
Very Kind Regards

Pam Ayres Poem

It was such a pleasure to write and perform this ceremony for the family.  Their mother’s favourite poem was” I Wish I’d Looked After My Teeth” by Pam Ayres so I read it for them on the day and family and friends left with smiles on their faces.  They wrote afterwards:

My mum’s funeral was perfect in every way.  We could not have asked for a more sympathetic or respectful celebrant to oversee the ceremony.  Every part of the funeral was professionally done and we couldn’t have wished for a more considerate or thoughtful service.  We were left with a lovely warm feeling that took away some of the sadness.

We were all very pleased with every aspect of the funeral.

My Teeth by Pam Ayres

Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth,
And spotted the dangers beneath
All the toffees I chewed,
And the sweet sticky food.
Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth.

I wish I’d been that much more willin’
When I had more tooth there than fillin’
To give up gobstoppers,
From respect to me choppers,
And to buy something else with me shillin’.

When I think of the lollies I licked
And the liquorice allsorts I picked,
Sherbet dabs, big and little,
All that hard peanut brittle,
My conscience gets horribly pricked. etc, etc.

The Dash
What a wonderful service you did.  Everyone was touched by the sentiments and content and said how it summed him up exactly.The whole family  have therefore asked me to thank you from all our hearts for such a memorable “Celebration” of our son’s Life.
Over 175 people attended the ceremony  as this young man was so popular.  It was also recorded on DVD to send to friends and family who couldn’t make the day.  The poem “The Dash” was a heartfelt addition to the ceremony.

The Dash by Linda Ellis 

I read of a man who stood to speak

at the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on the tombstone

from the beginning…to the end.


He noted that first came the date of birth

and spoke the following date with tears,

but he said what mattered most of all

was the dash between those years.


For that dash represents all the time

that they spent alive on earth.

And now only those who loved them

know what that little line is worth.


For it matters not, how much we own,

the cars…the house…the cash

What matters is how we live and love

and how we spend our dash.


So, think about this long and hard.

Are there things you’d like to change?

For you never know how much time is left

that can still be rearranged.


If we could just slow down enough

to consider what’s true and real

and always try to understand

the way other people feel.


And be less quick to anger

and show appreciation more

and love the people in our lives

like we’ve never loved before. 


If we treat each other with respect

and more often wear a smile,

remembering that this special dash

might only last a little while.


So, when your eulogy is being read,

with your life’s actions to rehash…

would you be proud of the things they say

about how you spent YOUR dash?


Testimonials from Civil Funerals





The Institute of Civil Funerals sends out feedback forms on my behalf to all the families I have written and performed ceremonies for.  Here is a selection:

With 250 people attending they all said it was a very tasteful service.

I have nothing by praise for the way my mother’s funeral was conducted.  Everything was perfect, she would have loved it!

I have recommended Sarah to all and sundry, it wasn’t Happy Clappy but respectful with a hint of Mum’s humour.

Excellent ceremony.  I would recommend to anyone who may ask for the best person, Sarah,  to go to.  Could not have asked for a better service.


I have now performed 52 funerals and met 52 amazing families with their own stories to tell.  Humour can also be part of the celebration of life.  One family asked for Tony Hancock’s The Blood Donor to be played at their loved ones funeral and everyone left with a smile on their face!

The best compliment to me is the family telling me after the ceremony that “He would have loved it – this ceremony said everything about him”

The institute of Civil Funerals sends me feedback returns regularly.  One family replied:

Sarah was very skilled at eliciting fond memories of Mum from all the family and building them into a picture of her.  She was also especially helpful when designing the service, in making it explicitly OK to include/not include religious aspects – we chose to have a hymn but no Bible readings, etc.  I have recommended her to several people since.

None of them understood the term Celebrant – I think some education is needed.  I am doing my bit.

This funeral included so much humour and love from her family and took place at East Devon Crematorium near Exeter.  We then had Afternoon Tea at their loved ones Residential Home.









Music by Glen Miller, Vera Lynn and Nat King Cole brought back such happy memories for the family of this lovely lady.  Her granddaughter shared some wonderful words about her beloved Nana bca7a7296c62c6f5a518bdd1b77ca776

“And that is how I’ll always picture her – looking perfect – big smile on her face, so happy to see me.”

and her favourite time of the day was – Elevenses!

Thank you so much for what you did for us
Personally you made me feel very comfortable from the moment we met at a sad time for the family.
