Silver Bee Ceremonies

Reviews (10) - 5/5

EXPERIENCE

Silver Bee Ceremonies is all about creating memories for the most special events in your life.

Each of my ceremonies is bespoke and personal focusing on the values and wishes of the families I work with. They’re a celebration of life and are often fun and uplifting whilst also being sincere and heartfelt. They empower people to celebrate in the way they want, whether that’s a festival style wedding or one at a stately home, a funeral in the local crematorium or a natural burial ground, or a river-side naming ceremony to welcome a new born into the world, intimate or a big celebration – together we can design your perfect ceremony.

The joy of a humanist wedding or naming celebration is that you can hold it anywhere you choose, as long as you have permission from the land owner. Lots of people select a licenced venue such as a local hotel but you are not limited to these so how about a wedding outdoors at Painshill Park in Cobham or your favourite spot on the South Downs or a naming ceremony at the top of Box Hill?

I mainly conduct ceremonies in Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Berkshire and London but I’m happy to travel anywhere. So if you are thinking of getting married or having your naming in Dartmoor, the Dales or somewhere further afield such as vineyard in the Dordogne I’d love to help.

If you would like to find out more about humanist ceremonies or to discuss your plans and ideas with someone who loves to talk celebrations then do get in touch. I’m happy to have an initial chat over a coffee or Skype to get the ideas rolling!

CEREMONY STYLE

Whether you’d like a ceremony that’s light hearted, traditional, themed or just special to you, I will work with you to create something truly memorable.

I love incorporating symbolic gestures in to my ceremonies that are right for each couple and family whether that is a hand fasting, Jewish breaking of glass, a sand blending or Bulgarian bread breaking. We can talk through the traditions you would like for your ceremony and I will include these in a way that is inclusive and memorable.

Outdoor ceremonies, in a woodland copse or lakeside, are my favourites so if you are looking for a celebrant for your festival or boho style wedding or naming celebration, or a woodland burial I could be just the person you are looking for!

Exactly the ceremony we wanted

We were really thrilled with the ceremony... exactly as we hoped it would be and everyone was full of compliments afterwards. So thank you.

Perfect wedding ceremony

Tess and Tom

Tom's Kitchen, Chelsea | August 2019

The ceremony went perfectly and I think you were the highlight of everyone’s day and also wedding history for most of them! Everyone was so complementary of you and Tom and I couldn’t have asked for anything else. I think one of the nicest things ones of Tom’s friends said was that you made him understand what marriage was about.

Memorable Naming Ceremony

Stephanie was able to provide us with such a special day for our beautiful baby boy at his naming ceremony. Her kind nature and loving personality made Hudson’s day very special and we will never forget it. After having two christening’s for our two older children we found Hudson’s naming ceremony so much more laid back and a lot more personal and a lot more memorable. Everyone commenting on what a lovely service Stephanie provided us.

Ceremony of love and laughter

Laura and Sam

Newdigate | May 2019

On our first meeting with Stephanie, we immediately felt at ease and completely confident that she would be able to craft and lead our humanist ceremony. Beginning with us, she helped us establish what was important to us as a couple by asking questions we hadn’t thought to ask ourselves. Those Saturday mornings spent with Stephanie were a lovely moment to indulge in our history, reflect on our relationship and look forward to our future together as husband and wife.

The ceremony itself went without a hitch, we stood beneath an oak tree on our family farm, surrounded by our friends and family, as we exchanged our personalised vows. Stephanie had us all organised (even when we were quite mad on the day before!) making sure we had everything we needed to ensure it all ran smoothly. She was also very accommodating when we decided to include our dog Ghost as part of our hand fasting ceremony, he had the very important job of bringing the ribbons to us!

We had so many comments from friends about how much they enjoyed the ceremony - there was so much love and laughter throughout - and it wouldn’t have been the same without Stephanie’s guidance, support and friendship as we made our journey to married life.

Thank you Stephanie, love Laura and Sam Burch xx

First birthday and naming

Claire and Matt

Pine Ridge Golf Club | June 2019

Stephanie conducted a naming ceremony for my son for his first birthday. She was so friendly and helpful, giving us as much time as we needed to perfect the ceremony. It was such a personal service and Stephanie had some great suggestions to make it more fun for everyone. We particularly enjoyed the singing! We had so many compliments afterwards and will definitely use Stephanie again for any future events. Thanks again!

Beautiful naming ceremony

Corpthorne Parish Hub | May 2019

Stephanie helped us create a beautiful naming ceremony for our little boy, it was the perfect way for us to welcome him to the world surrounded by our family and friends. Stephanie was great throughout, she took time to get to know us as a family, helped provide ideas and wrote a beautiful script for the ceremony.

The ceremony itself was just as we hoped it would be, personal, moving, funny, yet relaxed so even our youngest guests enjoyed it and were able to take part. We would highly recommend Stephanie as a Humanist Celebrant for a naming day.

It was a pleasure entrusting our ceremony at the capable hands of Stephanie Forster. She was extremely supportive in our bid to have a warm and intimate feel to our wedding. Stephanie incorporated beautifully and comprehensively the Bulgarian traditions that we chose to share with our guests. This was very important to us as our families come from different cultures. She made everyone feel involved and engaged with the ceremony, and we received compliments from many of our guests. We would thoroughly recommend her!

A little bit of magic

Karen and Andy

The Bingham, Richmond | July 2018

We had the best day on 14th July! We were obviously very concerned that the day went well for our children and parents (having already been officially married on our own in Las Vegas) but had comparatively few expectations for ourselves! However, we felt the proceedings were the perfect blend of emotion and ceremony. You managed to capture the essence of our relationship and our journey in just a few conversations, in person but mainly online as we live in NYC. I was particularly impressed that our coffee meeting translated so faithfully into the story which you eventually used in the ceremony. It needed very few tweaks! Our vows and secret words, plus additional "standard" exchanges which we were able to choose, made it very much about us as a couple.

Although the four children were initially sceptical about the "tying the knot" part of the ceremony, they enjoyed being such an integral part of the day and were moved by its symbolic nature. A little bit of magic thrown in for the other guests too!

We felt completely confident that you had everything under control and the ceremony was faultless. We had many, many comments later on about how lovely the ceremony was so thank you very much for making our day so very special.

We couldn’t have been happier with how Stephanie delivered our humanist ceremony - it was exactly what we were hoping for. Her personable nature and the time spent getting to know us before the big day ensured the ceremony truly captured our story and values. Stephanie’s professionalism and preparation let us know we were in safe hands and meant everything flowed smoothly. We’ve had countless family and friends tell us how much they loved the ceremony, with Stephanie conducting it with exactly the right of balance of solemnity and light-heartedness.
