Hi, I’m Sam and I’m totally in love with weddings!

So much so that I started SDCelebrations so I could spend my time helping couples have the BEST wedding day possible. Whether that’s guiding them through the planning process, conducting their ceremony or leading on the day coordination.

I live in Windsor Berkshire, just on the borders of Surrey and Buckinghamshire, and I love spending time in nature exploring all the stunning sights right on my doorstep.

Over the last twenty years of my career I’ve helped hundered’s of couples have the wedding day of their dreams. In 2014 I left my job as a Conference and Banqueting Manager to start my mission to empower couples to create memorable wedding days by escaping the constraints of a cookie cutter wedding.

We are all unique in this world. We all deserve to celebrate this uniqueness and our love in whatever way we please. I help couples by giving them the confidence and support to turn their ideas into reality. I help them shout about their love from the rooftops in whatever way is meaningful to them, putting the control back in their hands.

I’m fun, enthusiastic and love getting to know couples and helping celebrate all special occasions.  I really do care that you have the best time of your lives.

I’m adventurous and have been fortunate to have travelled to over forty countries (and counting!), and I love incorporating stories or symbolic ceremonies from around the world into memorable, interactive and thought-provoking ceremonies.

With a passion for all things wedding, I will be as excited and enthusiastic about your celebration as you are (I am that person that gets goose bumps watching that magical walk down the aisle).  You can guarantee that I will put every ounce of energy that I have into making sure that your day is as special as you both and that it goes without a hitch. But if there are any last-minute dramas, I’m inventive and resourceful and have many tricks up my sleeve to sort out any unplanned hiccups!

Drop me a line here to discuss how I can help you have an epic celebration!
