We didn’t want a church wedding and felt that a registrar was a little too rigid for our taste. We found out that a humanist could conduct the type of ceremony we wanted so we set upon finding a suitable candidate. We stumbled across Susan’s website and decided to meet up and chat. We found her warm and friendly and had some great ideas for our ceremony. We decided to look no further, Susan was our choice. She spent a little time with us to get to know us and asked all the questions she needed in order to compile our testimony. We had a lot of input on what type of vows we wanted and basically between us we compiled a ceremony that was tailor made to us as a couple. We chose to do a sand ceremony as well (Susan’s suggestion) which gave us the best keepsake we could ask for. All in all I would highly recommend Susan as she really did us proud. The feedback we got from our guests was nothing short of wonderful, I heard “the most genuine wedding i’ve ever been to” on multiple occasions.
Thank you for a lovely service this afternoon; it was beautiful! A huge thank you for making it so special! You were very friendly and helpful with great advice and ideas! We could not have wished for a better naming ceremony. Once again, many thanks to you, Susan!
Due to my husband needing unexpected heart surgery we had to cancel our wedding whilst my partner spent a month in hospital recovering. We then managed to find a last-minute wedding venue and found Susan through recommendations on the internet. Susan was very understanding of our situation and assured us that we would be able to put the wedding together in time and that she would be happy to act as our celebrant (despite the late notice). We filled in a questionnaire for Susan then met her in a lovely, local country pub (at her suggestion). Whilst there we had coffee and a long chat about our relationship, what we wanted from our marriage, who was important to us and gave her information about our day. She then used this information to write us a very personalised wedding script. This was sent to me within a few days and we worked together to edit and change this where necessary. Susan then came to our wedding rehearsal and did a full run through with our bridal party. Thankyou for providing us with such a personalised service Susan!
Susan, I want to make sure that you knew how grateful the family is to you for carrying out our wishes so well.
You were excellent as the funeral celebrant and I’m so glad I discovered you as well! I’m very appreciative of all your input, your experience, your kindness and your willingness to just go along with what we wanted. So many people commented on the service and how you conducted it and the burial and said it was in many cases the best and most moving funeral they have ever been to. You cannot ask for more.
You managed to help us make something so sad go so well and be so uplifting.
