Hello,

My name is Samantha Dobson and I live in Windsor, Berkshire.

 

I love all things wedding related, especially creating ceremonies that suit couples by helping to inject their personalities into their wedding day.

 

I spent 10 years working at a Grade 1 listed venue as a Conference and Banqueting Manager, and  I am also a certified Family Celebrant with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants, helping me to  understand weddings from a variety of view points.

 

I have been fortunate to run or conduct over 100 weddings in my career including within marquee's, Tipi's, barns, back gardens and even on the Long Walk outside Windsor castle.

 

There is nothing I enjoy more than being involved in a wedding.  I get an enormous buzz at that special moment when I put the finishing touches to a Bride's dress moments before she walks down the aisle to marry the person of her dreams.  The final dress check, hair, necklace, and veil tweaks, some deep breathing with dad, a nod from me to start the music and off she floats -it’s a goose bump moment every time!

 

It’s the same buzz moment as a Celebrant , what could be more special than being the person who gets to conduct a celebratory ceremony in front of a couple and their nearest and dearest?  It really is a privilege and one that I cherish the significance of being asked to do.
