A surrogate member of our family

Sarah was the most incredible celebrant. She really took the time to get to know us and by the time the wedding arrived she felt like a member of the family. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect and personal ceremony - Sarah let us lead where we wanted to, but we knew that she had everything under control at all times!

Charlotte and Josh

Sarah, you are the most amazing celebrant. From the beginning Sarah took her time getting to know us for our intimate blessing ceremony. We are not local to the Kent area so we had regular zoom calls with Sarah to discuss our plans for the blessing. Sarah went above and beyond visiting our venue for us so we could see the layout of our venue before arriving for the ceremony. Sarah helped us choose readings for our unity candle lighting and handfasting. Sarah captured everything about us perfectly in the script she wrote. Our ceremony was very intimate and all of our family were impressed how personal and special our ceremony was. Sarah felt like one of the family on our special day and we wouldn’t have wanted anyone else being our celebrant. Thank you Sarah 💗 x

Everything we could've hoped for and more

I'm struggling to put into words just how amazing Sarah was for our wedding, both in the lead up and during the day and to be honest, even after as we still chat regularly! She captured everything about us perfectly, we genuinely feel like we had our friend marrying us. Our guests were blown away by how personal, funny and warming our ceremony was. From our first conversation, she listened to everything and picked up on little niches about me and my husband that were included in the script and it made everything that little more special. She went above and beyond and nothing felt too much of an ask. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her. I couldn't recommend her more. Thank you Sarah ❤️

Sensational

We were searching and searching and as soon as we saw Sarah something clicked! She looked friendly, fun, happy and classy - exactly what we wanted. We arranged a zoom meeting and within seconds my wife and I gave one another a look 'this is the one'. Sarah is so very attentive, really listened and understood instantly what we wanted on our special day. She made suggestions based on what we had took her about our day and we went with them. She took her time to really get to know us as a couple and she become to be a friend. If you are looking for a kind, caring and charismatic celebrant then look no further! Sarah we will forever count you as a friend and are so happy that we found you x

Look no further for THE BEST celebrant you will find!!

We are extremely lucky that Sarah is a dear friend of ours. When we learned that she was choosing to change her career and become a celebrant we knew this was the opportunity made for her and would allow others to experience the compassion, love and thoughtfulness that Sarah delivers and exudes in abundance in her day to day life.

Due to covid we had to postpone our wedding 4 times. As a result by the time our wedding could finally go ahead we wanted to ensure it was personal and intimate, not showy. We had initially agreed to be married by the church but did not feel the service they were able to provide us with was about us.

When we asked Sarah whether she would be interested in being part of our day she jumped at the chance.
Sarah would deliver a joint marriage service with the church to enable us to marry. Sarah spoke with the church to see wtherther this would indeed be possible to hold such a service and when they agreed she took control of the majority of aspects of our service.
She took the time to research us and get us to reflect on our relationship, which in fact allowed us to fallen even deeper in love with each other. She took time to get to know us in greater depth and looked into how we are as a couple ensuring that we were each able to be represented in the way we wanted to be on our day.
Sarah spent time finding the most prefect readings that represented us so well in our relationship, she spent time visiting the venue, liaising with the church and ensuring that no matter what our day was going to be how we wanted it to be.

Knowing Sarah was at the helm on the most important day of our lives was incredible. She was beautifully eloquent, funny, passionate, attentive, calm, dedicated, and her words echoed every sentiment of the love we hold for each other as well as our family & friends. She even surprised us by mentioning our cat and furbaby Atticus, into the service (which meant the absolute world)
Each and every personal touch just felt so special.

We felt incredibly blessed to know that not only were we finally getting married but that we were being married by our dearest friend… I don’t think we could have dreamt of a better way to get married!!!

Even if Sarah wasn’t our friend, I’d have wanted her involved in such an important life milestone. She is self assured, compassionate, attentive, understanding, inclusive, supportive and makes a celebration out of life. She all about celebrating people, the love they have for one another and promoting the memories and stories and highlights from their lives - all without you realise she is collating all this information!!!
She brings the joy to the forefront and she does this with ease… that’s just who she is.

I have no doubt in my mind that even though she has only been a celebrant less than 6 months she is already phenomenal at her job. She exudes confidence not in a cocky way, but in a reassuring manner than makes you know that all will be ok with her involvement and being in charge of your day.

I cannot recommend her highly enough. Seriously, look no further for any celebrant need you may require. You will be incredibly grateful that you booked her.

Sarah thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for not only being our friend, for helping us prepare for the biggest day of our lives but by making it the best day of our lives. You finally helped us to become husband and wife and we will forever be grateful to you for being such a class act.

We adore you & you will forever be our Joey xxxx

Love Mike & Katie

The best!

We could not recommend Sarah any higher - she absolutely made our wedding! Once we had decided that we wanted a celebrant at our wedding, we started our deep dive of research trying to find the best celebrant for us. After a few weeks of searching, we came across Sarah's page and her beautiful smile instantly intrigued us! All of our communication with Sarah was quick and easy, and she arranged to come and meet us near our home in London to find out more about us as a couple. As soon as we met her, we knew that she was the perfect person to officiate our wedding and it was the best decision that we made! She was kind, caring and took time to understand our relationship and how we wanted our wedding day to run. She offered us endless support in the run up to our wedding and made the whole process so fun and easy. She sent through multiple couple questionnaires which were fun and made us so excited about our wedding. She also offered me endless support with writing my vows and our speeches, as well as offering support to our family members who were reading during the ceremony to ensure that there was no overlap or repetition, without ruining the surprise for us! On the day itself, she was a breathe of fresh air and spoke so perfectly about us as a couple and absolutely nailed the tone of the ceremony - she hit the perfect balance of emotion and laughs. She spoke eloquently and was so inclusive of everyone in the room. Our wedding was just over 2 months ago and we are still receiving so much positive feedback from everyone who attended about how amazing Sarah was. She was incredible and we genuinely feel like we have a friend for life so if you are considering a celebrant - look no further than Sarah, I promise you will not regret it!

Tanyard Wedding

First time we met Sarah we clicked! She went out of her way to visit us and further more spent ages getting to know both of us and our son. The readings she suggested were perfect for what we wanted. When it came to the day, we had some issues with the guests bus and the heat but she was calm and was able to keep things running smoothly. The ceremony was "on point", the perfect mix of humour and warmth that our guests really enjoyed and all commented on how much they enjoyed it and how it summed the two of us up. Our wee boy took to Sarah like a duck to water and loved being part of the ceremony with her guidance and coaxing. Cannot thank her enough.

Amazing bespoke ceremony

Sarah was amazing. The ceremony was everything we wanted and more. Sarah did such a fantastic job - she really captured mine and Josh’s relationship perfectly. Our friends and family also said the same thing and has made some of our friends want to use celebrants in the future.

The whole process from beginning to end was amazing, it felt like Sarah really took the time to get to know Josh and I and it was nice having her familiar and calming presence during such an important moment. I can’t thank you Sarah enough for how special she made the whole process and ceremony.

The most incredible experience with Sarah!

We found Sarah on Hitched, and could not have been happier with her service. We live over in Australia, and Sarah made the whole process so easy in terms of planning the ceremony and even caught up with us for a coffee before our big day, when we arrived in England six days before the wedding.
The whole ceremony was absolutely magical, everybody complemented us, and said that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to, and I put a lot of this down to Sarah. She captured all our words so perfectly, and wrote the most amazing vows on our behalf. If you’re looking for a celebrant, look no further than Sarah, she certainly will be a highlight your day!

The first of many


We had the honour of being Sarah’s first couple as a celebrant. We were in an unusual position in that we married during the pandemic in a heavily restricted legal ceremony but were due to hold our belated wedding day celebration on our first wedding anniversary. We knew that we wanted some form of ceremony but unsure what that might involve until we got in touch with Sarah. It soon became clear that she was the missing part of our wedding celebration puzzle.

We had many conversations during which Sarah learnt about the story of our relationship and life together. She weaved this into a beautiful script for our ceremony and came up with ideas we wouldn’t have thought of and it all worked perfectly.

The ceremony and how Sarah delivered it was one of the highlights of our day. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, how unique and how fantastic Sarah was. We wanted a ceremony which was personal, meaningful and memorable and Sarah provided us with that and more.

We could not recommend Sarah enough to anyone who was looking for a celebrant. We were privileged to be her first couple but know that we will be the first of many. Thank you Sarah!

The perfect celebrant!

Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with - she spent time getting to know both of us and helped create a ceremony that felt very personal, and brought together our cultures and interests. We also loved the attention to detail and aftercare - she surprised us with an elegant box to take home, containing our beautifully wrapped ceremony candles. You will not find a more thoughtful, funny, professional and charming celebrant than Sarah - can’t recommend her highly enough.

Amazing Celebrant

Cannot recommend Sarah enough for your wedding day! She really got to know my fiancé & I and the ceremony was so personal and lovely. We are still getting compliments about her and our ceremony several weeks later!
