We speak to professional independent celebrant Sarah Chapman

We speak to professional independent celebrant Sarah Chapman

Sarah Chapman is a professional and experienced independent celebrant delivering bespoke ceremonies throughout Devon and Cornwall. We ask her advice about planning smaller weddings than couples maybe originally intended, making sure that their guests feel part of the day. Sarah says, "A wedding is about two people. It's great you'll be able to have others there to celebrate with you but don't let worries over who can't be there spoil the day for either of you.Book your legal marriage first at a registry office with two witnesses present, and then hire an independent celebrant. By doing so, you can celebrate your wedding somewhere that's important to you both, like on a beach, in a woodland area, on a clifftop or in a boutique hotel - the possibilities are endless. An outdoor location is better than sharing enclosed space so take advantage of the small guest list and head somewhere that you couldn't go otherwise with a select few family members and friends.... read more

How will law reforms impact weddings

The Law Commission (an independent body which scrutinises legislation) are wishing to radically modernise the current antiquated laws. There is a strong consensus from the public that reform is desperately required as the current laws are not fit for purpose nor are they reflective of the way in which people wish to solemnise their relationship.... read more
