Whether you choose to hold your ceremony in our beautiful, north facing, private ceremony area at the heart of our lush green woodland or off-site, here at Cockley we can accommodate your needs. We work closely with two fabulous ladies that offer a personal and bespoke service catered to you and your partner’s wishes and needs.



Congratulations! If you’re reading this you’ve booked the most magical venue and are certainly my kind of couple! Like you, I love being outdoors in nature and enjoy the elements of our unpredictable weather. Said Alfred Wainright “there’s no such thing as bad weather, just unsuitable clothing”!

Sarah Garg Civil Celebrant

I’m informal yet highly organised, I’m a Glastonbury veteran on the recycling team so providing a sustainable wedding service is very important to me.

I have a wealth of experience working with a diverse range of people and strive to provide the highest level of service. As a former Celebrant Registrar, I have successfully guided many couples through their big day and fully understand that it’s the little things, the attention to detail and personal touch that makes the whole experience so very memorable, not only for you as a couple but for all your guests too. Like you, I am unique and we will work together to create the ceremony of your dreams. It is with great pride and honour that I am able to unite couples together in a way that best suits them – a way which is fitting, meaningful and memorable.

Afterwards, you will receive a beautifully presented keepsake copy of the ceremony – a treasured reminder of your commitment to one another. If in the years ahead you would like to renew your own personal vows you will be able to refer to your special day once more.

So, do your wedding your way and to leave you with another quote by Oscar Wilde “be yourself, everyone else is already taken”. When you are ready, get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you.

Love, Sarah xx
