Missenden Abbey | September 2019
I keep meaning to send u a note to thank you for the girls naming ceremony in September.
Our family are still talking about how amazing it was, how personal and how perfect it was for our particular family and story.
I felt like Barry and I had had a blessing within the service as you were telling our story, made me realise how far we have come.
We were on a high for days and still keep looking at the pictures, and in particular the sand ceremony you recommended was a personal favourite element.
I can’t thank you enough you gave me so many great ideas and helped make the day more magical than I could have imagined.
xx love me, Barry, and our girls xx
Windsor | May 2019
We knew we wanted to celebrate the arrival of our daughter and to appoint her life mentors to guide her through the life ahead of her. We hadn’t been to a naming ceremony before but believed it offered an ideal non-secular option. On contacting Sam we were reassured that our hopes for the day were realistic. More than that, Sam offered some poignant and lovely suggestions to include in the ceremony.
We found the process of working with Sam easy and efficient. Sam brought together all the components and details of the ceremony in a draft that we were very happy with. Even so, it was warming to hear it read and watch it played out on the day.
Sam kept the life mentors in check and accommodated a last minute reading. After the ceremony, Sam was exceptional in discussing her experience of naming ceremonies with our inquisitive guests and answering their many questions. For us and our guests, this was the first naming ceremony but Sam has left a positive imprint of this alternative to Christenings in their minds. Ultimately, this was a day we will remember and tell our daughter about as she grows up. A day that Sam played a fundamental role in making so special. We would highly recommend Sam to anybody thinking about such an event.

I must thank you again for getting our vacation off to an amazing start.
The ceremony was just so much fun and I've gotten so much awesome reaction and feedback from my family and friends and of course social media.
I am so glad that I found you and grateful that you were willing to do our vow renewal and make it such a big success.
I couldn't have asked for a better day.
Even though it was short notice, it came off without a hitch.
You made it so special. I hope to be back in England soon. Perhaps we can do another vow renewal next year! Haha
Take great care and continued success to you.
All the best Sam!

French Brothers Boat, Windsor, Berkshire | August 2018
Just wanted to let you know what a great day we had renewing our vows for our 25th Wedding Anniversary.
It was very short notice, but you arranged it all & did the service for us on board a boat, everything was taken care of very professionally & efficiently, you met with us beforehand on a very tight schedule (even though we got lost & were an hour late!)
You are totally unflappable and we didn't have to worry about a thing, you stayed in constant touch with us and answered all our queries to make sure thing were just right. Our guests loved it!
I will certainly recommend you to friends & family. Thank you so much Sam, you were great!

Ascot, Berkshire | May 2017
My husband and I were planning a small intimate ceremony and party and wanted our story to be told to our close family and friends as it has not been the most conventional journey. We met with Samantha and immediately knew that she would be perfect for our special day.
During the run up we spoke with Samantha frequently discussing all the small details and were guided in decision making of the ceremony, blessings and wording, she really could not have been more helpful.
On the day Samantha was on hand to check on all the guests, wedding party and the fine details that were to be included. I was honestly surprised at how much she did, always in the background discretely organising and preparing for what was happening next, assisting with all of the special moments, and helping with guests.
Our family and friends could not sing Samantha’s praises highly enough to us, not only for the beautiful ceremony she created but for all of the running around and little touches she did on the day.
She helped us to organise a wonderful wedding and told our story in a way that was casual yet intimate, funny and engaging. By the end of the day, Samantha felt like a friend first and celebrant second. Thank you, we could not have been happier.

The biggest thank you goes to Sam for making our ceremony so special!
You were a pleasure to have as our celebrant, so professional and lovely. Highly recommend.
Clock Barn, Hampshire | October 2016
We asked Sam if she would be the celebrant for our wedding day, and we were so pleased she was. She was wonderful! She really took the time to get to know us as a couple and this was reflected in the ceremony she wrote for us.
Although we didn't engage her services as a wedding planner, we found her to be a wealth of information. I checked all of our timelines, schedules and details with her, just in case anything seemed off. She was more than happy to advise, whatever the question! Having her there on the day as well was fantastic. It was great to have someone we knew and trusted keeping us updated with the progress of guests and the countdown to the 'I do's'!
Sam was a calming influence. The ceremony itself was delivered beautifully and all of the guests commented on how lovely and personal it was.
Lovekyn Chapel, Kingston- Upon-Thames | May 2016
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everythig that you have done, not only in the run up to our renewal of vows ceremony, but also for being so fantastic yesterday. You made everything absolutely perfect!!
Lee and I are so grateful.

With a passion for all things wedding related I will be as excited & enthusiastic about your celebration as you are (I am that person that gets goose bumps watching that magical walk down the aisle).
You can guarantee that I will put every ounce of energy that I have into making sure that your day is as special as you both and that it goes without a hitch. Yet should there be any last-minute dramas I’m inventive and resourceful and have many tricks up my sleeve to sort out any unplanned hiccups.
Where practical I always recommend a wedding rehearsal to help iron out the nerves and help with choreography and questions prior to the big day, and as I never book more than one ceremony in on a day, am very flexible should an important family member be running late.
It is important to me that you find the right celebrant to tell your story and that you have a connection with the person conducting the ceremony. We can chat initially in person or over skype as I offer a no obligation consultation, there is no hard sell, and you will know when you have found the right celebrant (a bit like finding THE dress!).
If this sounds like the sort of personalised and unique ceremony that you would be interested in having, then drop me a line as I’d love to talk through your epic celebration with you.
Let’s together make YOUR ceremony individually unique to YOU.
Exciting times ahead x
