Full Description
I am an award-winning Lady Toastmaster and Celebrant. Depending on your style of event I can be dressed in the official Toastmasters red uniform or a black-tailed long coat. However, if you are having a themed wedding happy to dress accordingly. I am a Ceremonies Celebrant and can help you to create a unique and personalised wedding specific to you both and your personalities including the music. I can also help you both when writing your personal vows. The ceremony can include family and friends and even your pets. I am versed in Asian traditions and can include symbolic moments from Asian ceremonies including various mantras, the milni, garlands, mangalsutra, sindoor and others. We can discuss what is right for you. This all allows me to be the perfect Celebrant for all weddings including fusion and mixed-faith weddings. My husband has a live band so when creating the perfect ceremony for you we can discuss the style of music you would like. This can be instrumental or include vocals. The band can perform all styles of music. For those of you who would like to renew your vows or welcome a newborn with a naming ceremony, I can also help with these ceremonies as well.

Best Wedding Day
We brought Sonal on board to be our celebrant and be able to conduct our multi-cultural wedding in a tasteful and beautiful way. She certainly delivered. From the first moment we got in touch, to then checking in leading up to the big day, Sonal was friendly, approachable and made sure we kept organised and relaxed. We made a new friend in the process and couldn't have asked for anyone better to be part of what was the most important part of the day. Thank you Sonal, and we would thoroughly recommend her to anyone.

She was the star of the show
Sonal was an outstanding Lady Toastmaster at the #EthnicityAwards for the ceremony. She got the evening right and was compere with Marvin Humes. She went above and beyond her role of reading the names of those shortlisted, she bounced off our award presenters, helped the ceremony run smoothly as was well prepared, and really importantly got all the names right - not an easy task. She was the star of the show. Great banter. Ethnicity Awards partner with HSBC and sponsors including Tesco, Natwest, Viacom, Lloyds Banking Group, Legal & General Investment Group and National Grid. The awards celebrates business, public figures, politics, sport and so many other areas who all help the ethnicity and race agenda. I would definitely use Sonal again without a doubt, she was great to work with and definitely added to the event. Thank you so much
