With over five years experience marrying couples in gorgeous Cornwall (that’s nearly 1,000 people and 500 weddings!), I’ve been involved with a huge variety of ceremonies and gatherings.


Same sex marriages, mixed faiths and cultures, from elopements with just two witnesses to vast marquees with hundreds of guests, the frivolous, the fabulous and the serene.

I’ve conducted ceremonies in caves, castles, cowsheds and country homes!

 

Being a wedding celebrant is such a special role, and gives me such joy - making your special day exceptional is my pleasure.

 

Originally from Haslemere, I have recently returned to my roots to be closer to family and now live on the glorious Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire border, surrounded by the Surrey Hills.

Choosing me as your celebrant...

Gold strip

The ceremony is the reason you’ve brought family and friends together, let’s make it exceptional.

 

You may already know exactly what you want, or you may need some inspiration, either way I will be there from the start to craft your ceremony, helping to create memories which will last a lifetime.

I will work closely with you, listening to your vision and goals, collaborating to let your personalities shine through – it shouldn’t just be your reception that everyone remembers!

It’s such an exciting time to get married - your options are limitless. We will meet (in person or virtually), talk, drink tea, and discuss whether you’re thinking of having your ceremony in your garden, the woods, a field, on a beach, at your home, a village hall, a castle, a boat, marquee… you can choose (almost!) any location. You can share the dreams you have for your ceremony and I will get to work!

I’m imaginative, experienced, warm and friendly and will make you feel supported and confident throughout this process. I know how nerve-wracking and complicated it can seem; you’re in safe hands with me!

My wife and I chose Sally to be our celebrant because of her warm personality which I knew others would feel on the day. Several guests commented "She seems familiar, do we know her from somewhere?" I truly believe this is because of how warm and welcoming her aura is, which made her perfect for the day.

Sally was very professional, thorough and inquisitive in the build-up to our wedding, we spoke a lot and many of the small details we mentioned ended up in the ceremony which was lovely to see.

We're very grateful for what Sally brought to our day!

100% would recommend :)

“Having Sally as our wedding celebrant was by far the best decision we made as she made us feel relaxed and at ease throughout.

She has a warm, bubbly and happy personality and lots of our guests approached us after our wedding ceremony to say how amazing the ceremony had been.

We would highly recommend Sally to anyone looking for a wedding celebrant!”

Sally was absolutely incredible, from the very first contact, to subsequent Zoom calls, as well as in-person meetings, and ultimately at our wedding itself.

 

Sally got to know us both, as well as our young daughter, so she could bring a really personal touch to the day. She happily put up with our lax approach to the wedding and coaxed us towards decisions like a pro.

 

She's also just a very, very lovely person, which always helps! We would highly recommend Sally, without hesitation.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you, not only did you conduct our wedding ceremony perfectly but you were so friendly and welcoming to everyone as well, all our guests commented on how lovely it was. Your organisational skills were flawless and everything went so smoothly. Communication from the minute we booked you was amazing, we couldn’t fault you.

Sally's approach to our wedding planning made us feel very relaxed. She methodically went through all the arrangements with us at our first meeting. This included liaising and building a relationship with the wedding venue manager. Sally made us aware of all the legal requirements and supplied us with useful information, timings and ideas. She was always on hand for advice and her cheerful personality made what could have been a stressful time, become organised and relaxed.  

 

On our wedding day, Sally filled us with confidence and calmed our nerves. She made everyone aware of the order of service and the ceremony itself was very personal and relaxed. She also circulated with family, friends and guests prior to the ceremony, ensuring that the whole day ran smoothly and most of all, very memorable.

 

We would highly recommend Sally to any future Mr and Mrs out there. She helped make what was always going to be a special day for us, a truly wonderful occasion.

‘We were so lucky to have Sally as a Celebrant at our wedding in 2019, she put both myself and Peter, my husband, at ease with her lovely personality and she made great friends with Bruce our Labrador who was the only guest!  She also spent time talking to us prior to the wedding, with lots of advice and making sure we were happy with the wording of the service and the content of our marriage vows. Thank you Sally, we really appreciated your time and effort.
