My name is Samantha Dobson and I live in Windsor, Berkshire.
I love all things wedding related, especially getting to know couples and 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 over 100 weddings in my career including within marquee's and Tipi's and a variety of venues around the country.
There is nothing I enjoy more than managing 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.
