Celebrant Samarah officiates weddings all over Canterbury.

What wedding would be complete without a fantastic celebrant to go along with it? Samarah is known for her relaxed style when it comes to weddings. She loves to add humour, as well as romance and joy into her one-of-a-kind, bespoke ceremonies. Big ceremony? Small and intimate? Eloping? Nothing is off limits! Get in touch today.

Tell us about yourself? Hey! I’m Samarah. I’ve been a marriage and civil union for about five years now. Fun fact: the first wedding I ever officiated was for my mum, and was the reason I got into the industry in the first place. I’m currently on maternity leave, but have an awesome career with a power company and have been with them for nearly seven years. I’m also a qualified personal trainer, and have a passion for health and fitness!

Tell us about your style? I’m very relaxed and like to make the couple feel at ease because I know how nervous people can get! I love to make people laugh and tell the couples love story from the very beginning.

Best part of any ceremony for you? Ooooh has to be the kiss!

Favourite things? As a first time mum, my favourite thing is spending my days with my son! (Currently 6 months old). My fiancé and I also have two very energetic dogs that we love to run around with. I enjoy the beach, watching live music, and reading a good book!
