About Sarah and A Shropshire Ceremony

Welcome to A Shropshire Ceremony. My name is Sarah and I am a
Civil Celebrant specialising in wedding, funeral and family ceremonies. As the name

‘A Shropshire Ceremony’ suggests, I officiate ceremonies throughout Shropshire and the
surrounding counties of Staffordshire, West Midlands and South Cheshire. I’m happy to
travel further afield, should the need arise.

Having spent over fifteen years as an English teacher and private tutor, I am a skilled writer
and storyteller, as well as being an experienced public speaker in front of large and varied
audiences. Needless to say, I enjoy reading which attunes to my enjoyment of the
uniqueness of peoples’ stories. With an ability to engage with people, whatever the
occasion, I have an innate curiosity for sharing personal narratives and reflecting this
authenticity within my own writing.

As a qualified Family and Funeral Celebrant, having completed the Family and Funeral
Celebrant Diploma with the United Kingdom Society of Celebrants, the skills I have acquired
during my career in education are seamlessly transferable to celebrancy. I like to actively
listen to people and absorb the details and tone of a story, using these accounts to craft a
personalised, warm and compelling ceremony that meets expectations – and hopefully
surpasses them.

The ceremonies I craft for you will be rich and authentic, reflecting your values, beliefs and
your unique story. You will be assisted in embracing the option that best reflects your
wishes, whether that’s something more traditional, bespoke or themed; this transformative
event will be authentic to you.

Much time is taken to listen and understand your wishes. During these significant times, it is
important that you feel comfortable to express your feelings and I will be sure to ask
insightful and relevant questions. Following this I will write your ceremony, conveying
engaging narratives and often humour, where appropriate. As well as this, I am able to offer
a bespoke poetry and verse writing service, should it be required. The delivery of your
ceremony will be well-paced and the tone appropriate to the occasion.

Contact me today to start planning your ceremony.
