Owner Stephanie’s work is all about turning life’s milestones into beautiful experiences that her clients and their guests will remember and cherish forever. She wants her couples to feel empowered to create a ceremony that reflects their unique style and story. Whether couples are planning a cosy, intimate celebration or something on a much larger scale, Stephanie loves helping turn wedding dreams into reality.

Services Offered

Silver Bee Ceremonies primarily covers Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, and London, but Stephanie is also happy to travel to locations further afield including Jersey. Stephanie designs bespoke ceremonies that reflect each couple’s unique wishes and values. The process usually begins with a chat via Zoom; after that, Stephanie likes to get together with her clients and really go through all the details. She’ll then send an editable script for clients to review. Stephanie also likes to rehearse before the big day so that everyone feels at ease and knows what to expect.

Calm, kind, professional, effective and perfect.

Stephanie was the best. She gets you thinking about all the right things prior to your big day. If you have firm ideas about all of it or certain aspects she actions them to ensure they happen, smoothly and calmly, on the day. If you have half ideas or are a bit lost about aspects of your big day she is great at talking it though and getting from you what she needs to formulate your ideas into a coherent and thoughtful plan. She is a communications professional and while there is nothing corporate about what she does, (our experience was always personal and bespoke) this back ground makes Stephanie extremely effective and reassuring. I was a little unsure about our actual ceremony prior to meeting Stephanie and after discussing it with her, it all fell into place. In addition there were nice touches and flourishes that made the day special. We were congratulated by all our friends and family on the loveliness of our ceremony and what's more, with Stephanie on board we didn't have to worry about or instigate any of it. If we had to do it all again Stephanie would be top of our list.

The perfect choice

Stephanie was absolutely sensational from the first day.

There’s something so lovely about being able to tell your Love Story during your ceremony, and Stephanie did such an amazing job!

She made our day so special.

She listened to our own little stories, and anecdotes from our friends and family and turned them into something beautiful.

I highly recommend choose Silver Bee Ceremonies. It’ll be the best decision you make while planning your special day! 💕

Thank you so much Stephanie, for making it so special

One of the best decisions we made

Stephanie was one the best decisions we made about our wedding day. From the initial planning meeting, through to meeting Stephanie in person, to talking through the ceremony right to our big day, we had multiple meetings where Stephanie really took the time to get to know us and all about our story and that’s all we really wanted from a humanist ceremony. We wanted someone who knew all about us and could really express that to our friends and family, and Stephanie did that in such a beautiful and emotional way, it really brought a unique atmosphere to our ceremony. We received so many wonderful remarks and comments about how amazing Stephanie was afterwards and I’m so glad we took the time to research and find someone as good as Stephanie to lead our ceremony! I can only apologise that it has taken 6 months for me to express my gratitude!!!

Wonderful celebrant!

We chose Stephanie for our older son's naming ceremony 2 years ago, and absolutely loved the entire experience, so when we decided to get married this year, it was absolutely no question who we would ask to lead our ceremony!

She has everlasting patience, particularly trying to hold an interview with us around our chaotic children, with total professionalism and good humour! Her calm demeanour helped us stay grounded throughout the planning process and the wedding day.

The ceremony itself was everything we had hoped for and more; it really came together perfectly in the end, and that’s mostly down to Stephanie's expert guidance. She gave us total freedom whilst helping us keep a structure that flowed beautifully.

Everyone at the wedding said how special the ceremony was, and how unique and meaningful it was. For many of our guests it was their first experience of a Humanist celebration and we have received countless compliments!

It was so special to be able to celebrate another milestone with Stephanie, and we have already booked her for the naming ceremony of our other son - can't wait for the Hat-trick to be complete!

Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts!

Magical New Year Ceremony

Stephanie performed our wedding ceremony in early January 2020. She was fantastic from start to finish. We spent weeks trying to find the right celebrant and once we had spoken to Stephanie we knew she was the one for us. We met for an initial chat to talk about our relationship and how we wanted our ceremony to be. A couple of weeks later Stephanie returned a beautiful draft script which we then worked on together to get it just right – it was a really special process.

On the day Stephanie was calm and organised and made sure everything ran without a hitch, having answered countless questions from us and readers along the way. It was a magical ceremony which brought a tear to everyone’s eye and so many of our guests commented on how personal it was – exactly what we’d wanted to achieve. We couldn’t recommend Stephanie more as a wedding celebrant – thank you for helping to make our day so special. Sarah and Andy

The icing on the cake!

We wanted to convey our thanks for such a touching and personal ceremony. I know that all of my friends loved the fact that they were part of it, and have even mentioned that they would do a similar ceremony now that they have seen first-hand a celebrant hand-fasting. The whole day was magical, and this was the icing on the cake. Shelley and Emma

What an amazing day we had, the ceremony was beautiful, thank you for putting it all together for us. We had so many comments about it. I think everyone really felt the love on the day and the way you told our love story was beautiful. We are so glad we choose to have a personal ceremony. Thank you so so much. Emma and Tom

Unique and personal ceremony

We were both in agreement that we wished to have a non-religious service for our wedding. When we met Stephanie we had no doubt that she was the perfect celebrant to lead our Humanist wedding. She was professional, well-spoken, sincere and made us both feel incredibly at ease. We had countless compliments from our guests, praising Stephanie on her unique and personal ceremony. One of our guests even asked if Stephanie knew us as she was so personable and delivered our story as if she were a friend. We can’t thank her enough for making our day everything that we wished for and more. Anita and James

The ceremony we were truly hoping for

Stephanie was warm, professional and supportive throughout our whole wedding experience. She gave us the ceremony we were truly hoping for and we got so many lovely comments from our guests about our wedding ceremony. It was tasteful, inclusive and reflected what is most important to us as a couple, with the odd moments of humour delivered perfectly! Stephanie helped us throughout the whole process from deciding how we would like our ceremony to look and feel to writing our vows and making sure it all fit together perfectly.

Perfect Ceremony!

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. Tess and Tom.

Fun and relaxed ceremony

We loved our day and are so thankful for your part in it. So many of our guests commented on how fun and relaxed the ceremony was, and the ring warming was hugely popular with everyone! The handfasting was such a lovely way to get the girls involved, and again we have had many comments on this too. Thank you for your support on the run up to it as well, it was lovely getting to know you during the process. Danae and Nick

Love and laughter throughout

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. 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.

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

Woodland Copse Wedding

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. Tash and Laurence

Bulgarian Wedding Traditions

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!

Perfect blend of emotion and ceremony

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!
