Firstly, a massive congratulations!
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and I truly believe this should be unique and memorable, celebrated your way!
The ceremony should never be the ‘boring bit’ or the thing you do to tick a box. Your story should be celebrated, from how you first met, to the proposal, right through to your dreams for your future together. I believe your ceremony should be super fun, with bags of personality and packed full of meaning. What it shouldn’t be is stressful and restrictive, and this is why a celebrant led wedding is so fabulous – because it isn’t any of those things!
Perhaps you’d like to include symbolic elements such as a candle unity, a ring warming, or toast with your favourite tipple – gin or cocktail ceremony anyone? Maybe have your beloved pooch walk you down the aisle or carry the rings? How about having a guest to sing a song during your ceremony? Whatever idea’s you have, I am sure we can make them a reality!
I am happy to help with readings, poems, music and vows, or if you’d like to write your own, then go for it! I will work with you to create a totally one of a kind ceremony that will leave you and your guests talking about your ceremony for a very long time afterwards!
How does it work?
I’ll arrange a chat with you either in person or on video call so we can discuss your dates and ideas. This gives you time to ask me any questions you may have, and for you to see if I’m the celebrant for you.
If we’re an ideal match, I’ll send you a contract and there will be a deposit to pay in order to secure your date. I only book one wedding a day, to ensure there are no time pressures – nobody wants that!
4 months before the big day, I will send out a couples questionnaire for you both to fill out. It can be more fun for you both to do this separately without any discussion – just think of it as a Couples Quiz – there are always some surprises! This helps me to get a better picture of you both as individuals, and curates your story as a couple. We’ll then have a longer consultation to run through the ceremony, the day’s logistics, and anything else you may want to add into your ceremony.
I’ll start planning your bespoke wedding ceremony and you should receive a first draft at least 2 months before your big day. If you want to add or change anything, we’ll make amendments until you are completely happy.
You will get unlimited contact with me all the way up to your big day – we can set up a Whatsapp group for any questions or ideas you may have, or you can contact me by phone or email. Remember – I am here for you!
On the day, I’ll arrive no later than an hour before to liaise with the venue , and everyone involved with the wedding. Most importantly, I’ll check in on you, and see how you are doing.
Remember, it’s not nerves, it’s excitement!
And finally, I’ll deliver a truly bespoke ceremony that will start your big day off with a bang!
A £200 deposit is required to secure your date and for work to begin on your wedding ceremony. The remaining balance is due 3 months before your wedding
Mileage – All venues within 30 miles from Bristol will not incur an additional cost. Anything outside of this will be charged at 50p per mile, plus additional accommodation if required.
“It was an absolute joy to have Sam as our celebrant at our wedding in September, and we cannot recommend her highly enough! Sam really took the time to get to know us over the months leading up to the big day, and as a result delivered the most perfect ceremony which was entirely fitting for us as a couple. We would not have changed a thing, and have been raving about Sam ever since! We have received so many compliments about how uplifting and refreshing our ceremony was, compared to other weddings. Thank you so much Sam!”
“I would absolutely recommend Sam if you are currently looking for a wedding celebrant. I don’t even know where to start because from day one Sam has been incredible. We met her via Zoom during the pandemic and in all honesty had no idea what to expect. We so quickly clicked and we knew that she was the celebrant for us. Sam has been an absolute rock to us during the wedding planning process, she went above and beyond what we would ever expect of a celebrant. When we got to meet Sam in person for the first time, she helped us regain the excitement for our wedding that we had lost following countless cancellations and hiccups due to the pandemic and lockdown. She kept our spirits up throughout the lows and shared the highs with us”
If I sound like I’m the celebrant for you, I would absolutely love to hear from you!
