English Wedding Celebrant in France.

Sandie Smith is a professional wedding celebrant who has been living and working in France for the past thirty two  years. She speaks both English and French fluently and is a font of knowledge on getting married in France. She travels widely in France , UK, Spain and Italy to perform non-religious, inter-faith and humanist ceremonies . She composes each ceremony to reflect every couple’s unique story . Thanks to her own very colourful life experience  ( which we won’t go into!) she embraces all ideas no matter how formal or informal.

“Her ceremonies have a sense of gravitas without being…………… boring !”

Traditional , elegant and contemporary.

Sandie’s ceremonies have a contemporary, elegant, fashionable feel without being whacky!

Although she’s non-religious and is a  full member of the British Humanist Association wwww.humanism.org.uk she’s comfortable with the word “spiritual”. She has a keen interest in meditation and spent many years studying with Tich Nhat Hanh and S. N. Goenka, influential non-sectarian teachers of the Vipassana movement. She has a deep interest in the subject of “LOVE” and feels deeply honoured to be a celebrant.  She crafts and orchestrates uplifting, romantic ceremonies which are  both joyful and profound.  She’s also a keen fund raiser, a human rights activist and an elected “Conseillere Municipale”  ( no mean feat in rural France)

“She  enhances every ceremony with a little mindfulness.”

Getting married in France.?

(Paris, Bordeaux, Provence, Aneyron……Cote d’Azur)

Couples come from all over the world to get married in France. Its romantic allure is perfect for fairy tale weddings in chateaux, on beaches, in family homes, under the Eiffel Tower and great deal of effort, excitement, resources and planning goes into the organisation of a destination wedding

…but the ceremony is the quiet moment where everything stops. It must be moving and absolutely engaging. Even the most cynical must get swept along.



Her husband George Smith, lead singer of http://bandinfrance.com and her step-son Thomas , lead singer of “Tomorrow Band”  are probably the two  busiest private function bands in South West France providing music for literally hundreds of weddings every year.
Her youngest son Charlie Smith is also a wedding singer who plays classical flute as well as guitar and vocals.http://charlietyrrellsmith.com/
