The biggest thank you goes to Sam for making our ceremony so special! You were a pleasure to have as our celebrant, so professional and lovely. Highly recommend.

Hi Sam,

Just wanted to let you know what a great day we had renewing our vows for our 25th Wedding Anniversary.

It was very short notice, but you arranged it all & did the service for us on board a boat, everything was taken care of very professionally & efficiently, you met with us beforehand on a very tight schedule (even though we got lost & were an hour late!) 

You are totally unflappable, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing, you stayed in constant touch with us and answered all our queries to make sure thing were just right. Our guests loved it!

I will certainly recommend you to friends & family.  Thank you so much Sam, you were great!

We asked Sam if she would be the celebrant for our wedding day, and we were so pleased we was. She was wonderful! She really took the time to get to know us as a couple and this was reflected in the ceremony she wrote for us.

Although we didn’t engage her services as a wedding planner, we found her to be a wealth of information. I checked all of our timelines, schedules and details with her, just in case anything seemed off. She was more than happy to advise, whatever the question! Having her there on the day as well was fantastic. It was great to have someone we knew and trusted keeping us updated with the progress of guests and the countdown to the ‘I do’s’! 

Sam was a calming influence. The ceremony itself was delivered beautifully and all of the guests commented on how lovely and personal it was.

Dear Sam,

Thank you so much for helping make our special day magical. We truly appreciate all the hard work you put into making the day go without a hitch. Your care, attention to detail, warm and friendly manner meant that we could relax and enjoy ourselves knowing everything was in hand. We especially love the wedding album you supplied us with after the event was over which included photos of all our 250 guests!  It was a really nice touch and meant we had a precious keepsake from the day that we will always treasure. We can’t thank you enough for your efforts in making our wedding a memorable one.

Dear Samantha,

Dan and I would like to say the biggest thank you for everything you did in the run up and on the day of our wedding. Everything was perfect and we have so many wonderful memories.

Marion and Dan

Thank you for the girls naming ceremony in September. Our family are still talking about how amazing it was, how personal and how perfect it was for our particular family and story. I felt like Barry and I had a blessing within the service as you were telling our story and it made me realise how far we have come. We were on a high for days and still keep looking at the pictures and in particular the sand ceremony you recommended was a personal favourite element. I can’t thank you enough you gave me so many great ideas and helped make the day more magical than I could have imagined.

Love Charlotte, Barry and the girls xx

Hello Sam!

We are now officially back in the States and missing England tremendously. I always hate when vacations have to end. But I must thank you again for getting our vacation off to an amazing start. The ceremony was just so much fun and I’ve gotten so much awesome reaction and feedback from my family and friends and of course social media.  I am so glad that I found you and grateful that you were willing to do our vow renewal and make it such a big success. I couldn’t have asked for a better day. 

Even though it was short notice, it came off without a hitch. You made it so special.  I hope to be back in England soon. Perhaps we can do another vow renewal next year! Haha

Take great care and continued success to you.

All the best Sam!

With grateful thanks, for your contribution to the smooth running and last-minute details of such a beautiful wedding. You were awesome.

To Sam,

Just want to say a HUGE thank you!

We could not have done this wedding without your support and organising. We really appreciate all your hard work, especially for working on your birthday!

Thank you so much

Nicola and Carl

We knew we wanted to celebrate the arrival of our daughter and to appoint her life mentors to guide her through the life ahead of her. We hadn’t been to a naming ceremony before but believed it offered an ideal non-secular option. On contacting Sam, we were reassured that our hopes for the day were realistic. More than that, Sam offered some poignant and lovely suggestions to include in the ceremony.

We found the process of working with Sam easy and efficient. Sam brought together all the components and details of the ceremony in a draft that we were very happy with. Even so, it was warming to hear it read and watch it played out on the day.

Sam kept the life mentors in check and accommodated a last-minute reading. After the ceremony, Sam was exceptional in discussing her experience of naming ceremonies with our inquisitive guests and answering their many questions. For us and our guests, this was the first naming ceremony, but Sam has left a positive imprint of this alternative to Christenings in their minds. Ultimately, this was a day we will remember and tell our daughter about as she grows up. A day that Sam played a fundamental role in making so special. We would highly recommend Sam to anybody thinking about such an event.

The best money spent on our Wedding was on the services of Samantha at SDCelebrations! She is a perfectionist who ensured our day went without a single hitch from making sure all the candles were lit at dusk to ensuring the bride & groom had bottles of water in the car for after the service. Things that you wouldn’t consider that make a huge difference on the day. If you are having a marquee wedding you WILL need help & I cannot recommend Sam highly enough. Thank you for everything and for making our wedding perfect. xxx

We recently got married and Sam was our amazing coordinator.  She went above and beyond in every way and truly helped make our day as seamless and stress free as it could have been.

All of our comments post wedding from our friends and family noted what a great job she did.

I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend her

Dear Sam,

A little note to say “thank you” so much for all your help towards our wedding. Every late-night phone call, every mental idea… every ounce of effort you put into making our weekend the best it ever could be.

We made the most wonderful memories, and had the most amazing time., and wouldn’t have managed to do it without your help.

Tom and Lauren

Hi Sam, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything that you have done, not only in the run up to our renewal of vows ceremony, but also for being so fantastic yesterday.  You made everything absolutely perfect!!

Lee and I are so grateful.

Well done Sam – amazing co-ordination and thanks for helping my very nervous son be a great MC.  I would recommend you to any couple who want a carefree wedding.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sam for any or all aspects of your wedding or celebration. She’s awesome!

Sam was a superstar with all the changes to timings etc and a lot of people commented on how helpful she was.

Sam Dobson (No relation) organised my daughter’s wedding yesterday. She worked tirelessly all weekend. My daughter’s special day didn’t miss a beat thanks to her and her team.

Thank you Sam.

Pete Dobson

We wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did to make our wedding even more special than we could have hoped. You were an absolute superstar, I’ve never seen someone zoom around so organised and efficient, on such a baking hot day, and to keep a smile on your face throughout. 


On the day of the wedding the florist hadn’t done enough buttonholes, without a second thought, Sam had used some spare flowers and created one herself to match the other groomsmen. She was brilliantly organised on the day, everything ran smoothly.

Alex (Bride)

The biggest thanks on the day must go to you Sam.  You made sure that everything went like clockwork (despite the best efforts of the photographers to kidnap Debbie & Rob).  You did this in a quiet but totally professional way, and it was so helpful for us to be able to approach you with any query or concerns and to know that everything was going to be ok in your capable hands.

Again, thank you for making it the best day of Debbie and Rob’s life
