“The ceremony Sarah provided was truly magical and wonderful, we couldn’t have asked for anything better. It was beautiful, meaningful, funny, moving, down to earth and real. The preparation work before was really good, step by step we collaborated and put our personal touch to the ceremony which Sarah then beautifully held.” LL
“Sarah is a great celebrant, she held the space in a loving and grounded way and we had such positive feedback from everyone who attended our wedding. We didn’t want a traditional wedding and she helped us write our own vows and helped us put together a completely bespoke ceremony.” GA
“Sarah Miles participated successfully in our Autumn Rites of Passage School, held at Halsway Manor, Crowcombe at the end of September 2014.
Sarah has a commanding presence and demonstrates great energy and passion for her work as an independent celebrant. She is meticulous in the preparation and execution of the ceremonies that she performs and we wish her well in her work.”

“On my first meeting Sarah I knew she was the right celebrant to help organise my mum’s funeral. Sarah was kind, understanding & professional.
Sarah helped me fulfil my mum’s wishes of having her funeral at The Railway Land, Lewes. It took many phone calls, but through Sarah’s perseverance she managed to organise it.
The funeral itself was magical, beautiful, relaxed & very well planned out.
Sarah had fulfilled all my mums wishes through her determination, caring nature & hard work.
Many of the guests came up to me after & said it was one of the most bright & beautiful funerals they had ever attended.
All credit goes to Sarah for her expertise, gentle manner & dedication as without her help & input the experience would of been so much harder to deal with.
I will always thank you for that.” EJ
“Sarah is a very intuitive, sensitive person who brings to the role of celebrant warmth, empathy and a lot of life experience and awareness.
Her ceremonies are creative and deeply sincere, she is confident in speaking and crafts her words carefully to ensure that everyone attending can understand and benefit from the shared experience.” SC
“Sarah’s sympathetic & caring manner helped me to feel listened to.
Her guidance helped me to make the choices that felt right for me.” ST
“At all times you had the appropriate balance of professionalism & empathy that made you so easy to talk to.” JW
“I met Sarah. I think she has that rare quality of heart & mind, & I believe she’s exactly the right sort of person to be a celebrant.
She is bright. She’s a good listener. She’s creative. She doesn’t take over. She’s full of purpose & good ideas. She empowers people.
With Sarah you can create a really special, unique & fitting occasion.” – Charles Cowling Author of Good Funeral Guides.
“It was a very uplifting experience and I felt honoured to share in such a personal and heart felt ceremony marking an individual’s (friends) transition, closing one’s past and mentally preparing for a positive future.” YW
“My experience of the milestone ceremony Sarah did for me was very cathartic and a surprise that it was so.
I really didn’t expect to attain such a wonderful feeling of release and uplift.
The people present, are still talking about what a special time it was for them, and how moving it was to witness.
I would recommend allowing Sarah to create a ceremony for you.
In fact I trusted in her abilities as a celebrant so profoundly that I felt able to leave the creation of the ceremony entirely in her hands….whereby I didn’t know exactly what to expect…. but in doing so I was able to experience the ceremony in the present moment and therefore at it’s most powerful.
Thank you for enabling me to let go Sarah!.” TM
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help. Please know your gentle guidance and reassurance made this journey and saying goodbye to dad so much more bearable for myself and my family and has been a great comfort.
I know you have and will continue to help many people with your beautiful words and you are truly a blessing to all.
With heartfelt thanks again Sarah”
“We would like to say a big thank you Sarah for helping us put together our ceremony and being the perfect celebrant for our wedding.
Amidst all the planning, it was our meetings with you in the run up to the wedding that reminded us exactly why we were getting married and got us excited for the big day.
Thank you for all the effort you put into getting to know us and our story, and for all of your ideas to make the ceremony extra special. We were a little overwhelmed at the beginning, not knowing what to say or do, but with your guidance we created something far beyond our expectations.
All our guests commented on how beautiful, personal and unique the ceremony was, there was hardly a dry eye in the field! We will always be glad that we chose you, no one else would have done such a good job. Thank you so much for helping us create some amazing memories.” CP & JP
“We knew we didn’t want a traditional or religious wedding but initially we didn’t know how or where to start planning our ceremony. It was through our conversations with Sarah that we were able to visualise the environment we wanted to create and a ceremony that would reflect who we are and how we feel about each other. Sarah helped us to structure our day and put into words our reasons for getting married and the vows we wanted to make to each other. She listened to both of us and grasped exactly what we wanted, then gently guided us and made thoughtful suggestions without ever being overbearing.
On the day of our wedding Sarah was a calming and reassuring presence during the nerve-racking hours before the ceremony. She took the stress off us by giving clear instructions to our guests and managed to set the tone for the ceremony with professionalism and a lovely balance of thoughtful sincerity and humour. We had a perfect day that we will treasure for the rest of our lives and Sarah Miles was a big part of that. We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else as our celebrant and don’t think anyone else could have done as good a job of it.” TS & KP
