Sylvia conducting an open air summer wedding

Hello and Welcome!

All you need is Love, right?  Well actually I beg to differ!

All you need is Love… and a Celebrant!

Thank you for dropping by and huge congratulations on your forthcoming special celebration.

Whether it be your wedding or renewing your vowels, a commitment ceremony or a naming ceremony, whatever you’re planning, whatever the occasion, it all starts with a series of fortunate events and a story, and this is where I come in.

Weddings

Marriage ceremonies can be short and sweet, traditional, include rituals and cultural beliefs, the choice is yours.

The exchanges of rings and or vows are completely up to you and are not compulsory.

Commitment

A commitment ceremony is a meaningful and delightful celebration for couples of any gender to pledge a declaration of love for one another and can be shared with family and friends or can be held privately without guests.

Vow Renewal

Engagement Wedding  and Eternity Rings

Celebrate your marriage and confirm to your partner just how much you love them – now and forever.

Renewing your vows is the perfect way to reaffirm your love.

Namings

Child's garden birthday party

A naming or blessing ceremony is a wonderful way to welcome a newborn or adopted child into your family.

Bring together your family and friends to express wishes, hopes and blessings.

So What’s My Ceremony Style?

Now…

…I know I’m not the wackiest celebrant out there! I won’t turn up in a sequin tutu waving glow sticks around and I definitely won’t pretend to be someone I’m not, just to ‘fit in’ and get the job!

With me, what you see is what you get; a calm, warm and happy, easy going and positive person who will go above and beyond for you. Don’t get me wrong, I like a laugh and a joke as much as the next celebrant and have a rather dry (sometimes sarcastic but never offensive) sense of humour, and I would be the first to encourage individuals to be who they want to be – after all, uniqueness is what builds character and what makes the world go around, hey?

I feel I’m a natural leader and organiser without being bossy. I’m good at putting plans into action and encouraging people to step out of their comfort zone and to think outside the box, to create unique and original rather than dull and generic. My calm and easygoing presence soon puts people at ease, and I am especially good with pets and children – that’s where being a grandmother comes in useful!

“Captured our fun personalities! “

“Myself and my husband used Sylvia for our ceremony during the summer and were extremely happy. Originally, we had been thinking about a council registrar ceremony, but this didn’t work out for us, which forced us down the path of looking at celebrant led ceremonies – which in hindsight, we couldn’t have been happier about! I felt at ease with Sylvia as soon as we had spoken to her and felt she really listened and understood what we both wanted. It was so nice to have such a personal ceremony and was very emotional for both us and everyone listening….with a few laughs thrown in lol. Its lovely we have a typed script for us to keep forever and look back on as so much of the day goes in a blur the memories are everything.
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking, just on the first call you will hopefully feel as I did a genuine warm person who really loves her job and can bring your day to life.
All our guests said how Sylvia captured our fun personalities perfectly and how it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to! She was cool, calm and collected and made us feel very relaxed!
The ceremony was absolutely perfect! A great balance of sentimental and humour, it was personal to us both and our guests praised Sylvia for the time she spent getting to know us to ensure our ceremony was unique to us.
Sylvia was on hand whenever we needed her. The amount of voice messages, texts and call we made asking for help with personal vows was immense but she answered them all and helped me/us write our own vows to one another, she picked us up when we felt stressed and overwhelmed, Reminded us why we were doing this aswell as reminding us to breath she honestly has one of the biggest hearts. I wouldnt recommend anyone else you honestly wouldn’t be disappointed choosing Sylvia shes one of a kind. I cant thank you enough for making our day perfect. Xxx”

“Absolutely Amazing! “

“Sylvia was absolutely amazing for us on our wedding day, and she has been through the whole process, since we first contacted her almost a year ago. She has always been happy to advise us and answer any questions we had, and clearly pours so much love and care into her work. The script she produced for our ceremony was just beautiful and perfectly captured our love story. She made our wedding everything that we dreamed it would be and more with her attention to detail and caring nature. She was so helpful in making us feel comfortable when we were nervous, and we feel proud to call her a friend. She had such an important role in our story and we will never forget all that she has done to make our wedding perfect

P.S. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, no doubt thanks to Sylvia’s beautiful and personal ceremony!”

“Amazing job! “

“Sylvia did an amazing job for our wedding in September. She was fantastic throughout, so thoughtful and very easy to speak to and get along with.
The whole process was very personal, and me and my husband loved how many personal details were included in the ceremony. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, Sylvia really did an amazing job and so many guests commented on how brilliant the ceremony was!
We were also provided with a lovely print out of the ceremony, including a certificate and a print out of the reading.
Thank you Sylvia for doing such an amazing job!”

“Our perfect day”

“It was a most wonderful occasion held outdoors in our garden and included ring warming, sand blending and lighting unity candles. The sun shone and Sylvia’s part in the whole celebration was unsurpassable. The wedding celebration was considered by many of those present to be the best they’d ever been to. Thanks Sylvia for making it so special”

Pip Keeble

“Beautiful & Personable”

“When I started looking for a celebrant for our wedding, I knew very little about the process. I found Sylvie’s page online and reached out, she was very quick to get back to me and explained all about what she, as a celebrant, does. We met Sylvie in person not long after this and we knew right from the start she was the one we wanted to marry us. She is extremely professional but so kind, caring and honest. She helped guide us through our perfect day! She kept us updated throughout the process and nothing was ever any trouble. On the day everything went so perfectly, but I knew that even if there had of been any pre wedding hiccups I could trust Sylvie to go that extra mile to help. We felt like we had a friend marry us, rather than someone we had only “just” met. Everyone commented on how beautiful and personable the ceremony was and how well it suited us as a couple. So thank you Sylvie for all you done, up to and including our special day.”

“Refreshing and in control! “

“Refreshing and in control – Exactly what we were after – Thank you!
Sylvia was exactly what we were after for our ceremony – You get a really personalised, and well thought-through script that’s carried out calmly and without fuss by a lovely, friendly and personable presenter.
In addition to what we thought about the ceremony, our guests really enjoyed it too, the sentiment generally being that it was refreshing, over that of the same non-specific blurb that they’d heard over and over in other ceremonies. My grandad in particular found it very touching.
Given this was our first (and hopefully only..) wedding, you don’t really know what to expect, and that’s one of the reasons I think Sylvia was so good – Every time we met up to have a chat about what was going to happen, we left those meetings with confidence that it was going to all be fine and without fuss – Which when you’ve got so much else going on already, is really important.
I’m not even sure how I found Sylvia, but it was obvious after the first meeting that she was exactly what we were after, I think before we’d even got back in the car we’d decided to give the nod. Sylvia came out to our local pub at times that likely suited us much more than her, which we really appreciated – From those meetings and a few emails we were able to iron out all of what we needed over cups of tea.
Sylvia really helped guide us through what to expect on the day and was more than willing to make adjustments to the final script, though there were very few required as she’d really listened to what we’d said and written in the questionnaire that kicked it all off.
We would highly recommend Sylvia as she really was excellent, thank you so much.”

“Beyond expectations! “

“Sylvie conducted our wedding this August Bank Holiday Weekend and I can’t recommend her enough to anyone who is looking for a celebrant. Sylvie exudes a special kind of warmth and loveliness which confirmed from the moment we met her that she was the right person for our wedding. The wording of wedding blessing was so beautifully written it was beyond my expectations. So many of our friends and family commented on how lovely and special it was. Sylvie was always available for support and guidance and I will genuinely miss our little chats leading up to the wedding. Thank you Sylvie for making our day the wonderful and unique event we wanted it to be.”

“5 Stars are not enough! “

“5 Stars isn’t enough for this Lady. When I first found Sylvia just by a google search we were in a bit of a difficult situation due to covid and hadn’t explored what having a celebrant meant so I reached out to Sylvia explained the situation and she called straight away and put my mind at ease. We then met and discussed what we wanted from the wedding and how the day would work. We instantly felt this was the right discussion and booked her. We had several meetings discussing the day and planning the ceremony and she even came out of her way to do a rehearsal for us. The ceremony was so personal she listened to everything we said which meant the world to us. We cannot thank you enough for being there on our big day and making it something we will never forget. We even received a beautiful box with a print out of our full ceremony, reading and certificate which was a lovely touch. we would HIGHLY recommend Sylvia to anyone she really went above and beyond.

“Sylvia was absolutely fantastic to work with for our wedding ceremony earlier this year. She has such a calming presence and obviously puts so much care and thought into her work. From the off she really put us at ease, ensuring that we were totally aware of all the options and chatting through how the ceremony could run. She was really flexible and easy to communicate with too. The ceremony she delivered at our wedding was beautiful – it really captured both of us, and the story of our relationship, and was both meaningful, moving and fun (in the right places!) We got so much great feedback about the day, with people saying the ceremonies was one of the best they’d been to – I would not hesitate to recommend Sylvia, or hire her again!”

Natalie Barnett

“Amazing & Memorable! “

“Sylvia was just amazing to work with! From the very first time we spoke over zoom, all the consultations along the way, right through to our special wedding day, her warm, friendly yet professional demeanour came through. Our ceremony was simply beautiful – it was perfect for the occasion and we had SO many compliments from friends and family. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and hope we get to collaborate again on other life milestones. Thank you so so much for making our ceremony so memorable. We can’t thank you enough”

Julia Ward

“100% perfect day thanks to Sylvia”

“Sylvia was the perfict fit for our ‘Festival Wedding’ Booking her during lockdown we had Zoom meetings which went very well. we both felt that Sylvia was warm, genuine and completely at ease with our wishes for our ceremony. She listened to our background stories, helped guide us through what we chose for readings etc and made some great suggestions for parts of our ceremony. It was 100% perfect and we can’t thank Sylvia enough.”

Natasha Latham

“Vow Renewal”

“I had Sylvia do our wedding renewal on Saturday. After cancelling it because of covid we decided to have a small anniversary party instead but it just didn’t feel the same, so with very little notice Sylvia came to the rescue again and it was perfect, and the poem she wrote for my daughter to read too.
Thank you so much for taking a lot of worry away and making our day special x”

Crystal Finlay

“Thank you”

“I was due to be getting married on the 6th June but it was postponed. This lovely lady done myself and my partner a lovely virtual pre recorded ceremony for us on that day. I cant thank you enough for your kindness I really appreciate and it was a lovely thing to do for us xx”

Lucy Abel-Corcoran

“We found our ceremony really meaningful and beautiful, and it’s with massive credit to Sylvie for writing it so well and weaving in those personalised elements that make it special to us. Sylvie was extremely easy to work with, and was a wonderfully calm and reassuring presence on the day. We had a few ideas for what we wanted to include, but we probably weren’t the easiest couple as we felt awkward with some of the common story-telling in ceremonies. Sylvie happily worked with us, and let us provide lots of feedback and edits to her drafts so that the result was just perfect for us. We would thoroughly recommend Sylvie to any couple.”

Emma Allen

“Thank you”

“Our wedding has been postponed so Sylvia kindly arranged a virtual ceremony for us for the day that should have been, so we were able to mark the occasion. Many thanks again for the both of us x”
