ceremonies for this century

Hey lovers, queers, and humans of all kinds – together let’s make your wedding, coming out party, celebration of life, or other important moment, an event that’s actually you.

Brella offers bespoke ceremonies that reclaim ritual and bring ceremony into this century.

We’ll take what resonates, create what we can’t find, and toss the rest.

Sarah Chiddy Celebrant

Building your ceremony should be about creating a sacred space, telling some stories, and being with the people we love. I’m here to help you accomplish that.

I have a Masters from Harvard Divinity School, and I’m a Life-Cycle Celebrant with the Celebrant Institute and Foundation. I’m a poet and writer and a reader – I know what words can do. Don’t worry – I can do all the legal stuff too.

Whatever your background, whatever family means to you – whether you want to include meaningful religious moments, or if you and everyone in your whole wedding party is wearing only glitter and leather – I want to help you make something you’ll remember forever.

Let's make it happen

Sarah created something truly beautiful for our wedding day. With a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary sentiments and rituals, she crafted a ceremony that truly reflects us, our relationship, and everything we hope our marriage will be. From our very first meeting, Sarah made our ceremony deeply meaningful and the cornerstone of our new life together.
Tory + Kyle
Our wedding wasn't an easy one to put together. With a toddler running around we didn't have a lot of time for wedding planning, and we lived 6000 km from our wedding destination and all of our family. This is where Sarah came in. She worked around our schedule to have Skype dates, and encouraged us to think about what was important to us as a family, then helped us incorporate those ideas into our ceremony. Together, we made a ceremony that was as unique and beautiful as our little family unit. Her coaching helped us gain a greater understanding of why we love each other, which served as a beautiful reminder of why we wanted to get married in the first place. No doubt, we are stronger because of the guidance Sarah gave us in our planning process.
Britt and Dan
We had thought about having a wedding for a long time, but couldn’t quite imagine an event that would suit us. Sarah was indispensable in helping us to reflect on what mattered most to us and together we collaborated to create a ceremony that was an expression of who we are. As an officiant she was welcoming, professional, and sensitive—just as we’d hoped. In the end we are so thrilled about how our wedding turned out—it was so much fun, and it felt true to us—and it just would not have been possible without Sarah.
