What People are Saying

Weddings

A Magical Ceremony!
Just to say a huge thank you! It was a truly magical ceremony! So many people have commented to us about how fabulous you were, that you gave the ceremony a wonderful relaxed atmosphere but added so much interest with the history of us as a couple, and that of the rings and hand fasting. Matt particularly made mention of how at ease you made him feel with giving a reading. Everyone mentioned that you were absolutely perfect for the day, and we totally agree! We cannot imagine anyone else doing a better job, you worked with late arrivals, Simon's heckling etc. with such calmness and humour and made the ceremony both informal yet totally meaningful at the same time. A very rare talent! Thank you so much for being such a special part of our day, we truly appreciate your contribution!
Nikky & Simon (July 2015)
The Ceremony was Beautiful!
Thank you so very much for our ceremony. It was truly a wonderful day and we loved every minute! Everyone (literally everyone!) commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how lovely that it had been personalised in the way it had been. Our guests loved the Sand Ceremony and it is lovely for us to have something to remind us of our special day. Thank you again for making our ceremony one that we will truly remember.
Kate & Paul (November 2015)
We Knew You Were The Right Choice!
I wanted to take a moment to send you our gratitude for hosting our wedding ceremony. From the second we met, both myself and Kate felt comfortable that you were the right person to present our big day. From the Californian accent to your general happy character and smiles, we knew you were the right choice. The ‘wedding’ part of our day went exactly how we wanted it to, it was funny, reflected our characters and your choice of wording felt personal to us with a grander sense of meaning surrounding the ideals of ‘marriage’. For both of us that was important as we love each other very much and wanted that to come across on the day. The feedback from all of our guests was that it was beautifully presented and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends! Thank you so much for working with us to make our big day magical!
Kate & Brett (May 2015)
An Absolutely Perfect Wedding Ceremony!
We would just like to thank you for an absolutely perfect wedding ceremony. Not only were we over the moon with it, but all our guests commented on how lovely it was also. We are both so glad that you did the ceremony for us and couldn't have hoped for anything more. Once again we can't thank you enough.

You Surpassed All Our Expectations!
Our sincere thanks for making our wedding ceremony so special. We have lost count of the number of friends who have said how wonderful and personalised the service was. They had never been to a ceremony which meant so much. Thank you so much for the care, effort and time that you spent. You surpassed all our expectations.

It Was An Amazing Day!
We just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for us on and leading up to our wedding day. It was an amazing day and we were glad you were part of it. We just need to find somewhere to put our sand heart out of the reach of our kids!

A Beautiful and Personal Ceremony!
Thank you for such a beautiful and personal ceremony. Your warm and caring nature made us feel at home in your presence. All of your hard work and dedication in making our day so special came through for all to see during the ceremony and having our commemorative copy gives us something to look back on in years to come. It was a pleasure to go through the process of creating our wedding with you and you will remain unforgettable to us.

Baby Naming Ceremonies

Our Friends Were Very Impressed!
Thank you for the lovely ceremony. We were very pleased and felt it all went well. We received a lot of positive comments and some of my friends who have not had a ceremony for their children either religious or a naming celebration were very impressed with you and are considering something similar for their children. We will forward them your details. Thanks again! We are undecided about more little ones but we will definitely be calling upon your services again should the occasion arise.
Kate, Andy, Ruby and Julianna (July 2015)
We Love What You Have Written!
We absolutely love what you have written! You managed somehow to express exactly what we wanted but far more eloquently than we ever could!

Funeral Services

A True Legacy and Celebration of His Life, Thank You!
Thank you, Ellen, for making our father's funeral a true legacy and celebration of his life. You made it all about the wonderful man he was and tailored our favourite memories and tales into a beautiful memorial. Thank you for being there to support and guide us every step of the way. You have the most amazing gift of making us feel at ease and comfortable , and to talk openly with you about our favourite memories, celebrations and thoughts. You truly made what should have been the most miserable day into a beautiful celebration of life and everyone who attended commented on how personal the ceremony was and how they were overwhelmed with the emotion you put into the words, and how eloquently you delivered them. Ellen, we thank you again for making our Dad's funeral one that we are very proud of.
Lyn, Emma, Mark and families (November 2014)
You Are A Blessing to Many!
I wanted to thank you for the gentle, compassionate and respectful manner in which you conducted my mother's funeral. I am also aware of the effort you had clearly put into meeting with my sister and preparing the Order of Service and for respecting our wishes. I wish you much joy in the work you do on behalf of others at a difficult time in their lives. I am sure you are a blessing to many.
Daniel (January 2015)
We Couldn't Have Wished for a Nicer Person!
First of all I want to thank you ever so much for writing such beautiful words and capturing such precious memories of our mum. Thank you sincerely from us all. We couldn't have wished for a nicer person to be helping us though this difficult time. I know mum would be thrilled to have you take the service for her. She would have really liked you.
Derek & family (September 2014)
'Go That Extra Mile' Shines Through In Ellen's Service!
The saying 'go that extra mile' shines through in every aspect of Ellen's service to her clients. When the celebration of my mother's life was over, it was hard to believe that Ellen had never actually met her in life.
Simon (February 2015)
Thank You For Your Beautiful Words!
I would like to thank you for your beautiful words, the way you led the service with such sensitivity and empathy and succeeded in combining our contributions into a truly memorable farewell for our family and friends. It was an unusual service for many, but they were all moved and thought it was a lovely service.
