Welcome to Moments To…, the home of Sarah the Celebrant!


I’m Sarah Nelson, the celebrant at Moments To… I like to combine my love of writing, sci-fi, the weird and the odd with creating ceremonies that are honest and relatable.

Moments To… offers a range of ceremonies that celebrate and honour life events from naming and welcome ceremonies to wedding and vow renewals as well as funerals.

My Passion for Your Ceremony

I pride myself on treating all my clients like family. My mantra is: How would I want to be treated?

And this fuels my passion to be kind, helpful, and honest when creating ceremonies. I want the best for my clients and emphasise my role as more of a facilitator to help families and couples express their emotions.

The ceremony is ALWAYS about the client and never about the Sarah.

So have a look at the ceremony you need, and I’ll take my lead from you.

Weddings, Vow Renewals, and Commitment Ceremonies
Naming and Welcome to the Family Ceremonies
Funerals and Memorial Ceremonies

Remember, why be ordinary when you can be unique?

Wedding - Llandegla Forest, Wales

Having a celebrant led wedding allowed us to have a tailored ceremony for both our personalities. Sarah worked with us as a couple on the ceremony and individually on a set of vows that reflected exactly how we feel about each other but in our own individual ways. Our vows were a surprise to each other on the day.

Sarah was approachable from the start and instantly understood where we were coming from. It was like Sarah took our thoughts and turned them into words in ways we couldn't have done ourselves and we wouldn't change a thing.

Sarah was supportive throughout and on the day was a calming influence. Thank you for helping make our big day so special!

Naming Ceremony - Leeds

We couldn’t have been happier with the service that Sarah provided. Sarah tailored it beautifully to make it personal and able to reflect our family’s personality. She’s so kind and calm which is perfect in the midst of the panic that comes with organising any event. The ceremony went perfectly, and everyone commented on how wonderful Sarah was. Thank you for making our day so special.

Vow Renewal - St Helens, Merseyside

Sarah from the start was friendly, meeting with us a couple of times to understand us as a couple to be able to write our ceremony, and gave us the chance to change anything we were not happy with.

On the day Sarah was lovely, she came to see how we were and talked us through what was to happen.

Our ceremony itself which she had written was absolutely perfect, we couldn’t have asked for anything better, and we have a treasured copy she gave us to keep.

I would 100% wholeheartedly recommend Sarah.
