Susan Denton

Celebrate with Sue - Wonderful and Unique Ceremonies

Reviews (21) - 5/5

EXPERIENCE

I have a lot of experience in creating and delivering wedding, vow renewal and naming ceremonies as well as funerals. I am caring and energetic and am well-practised in public speaking and have superb literary, writing and presentation skills. I have successfully completed a number of training courses in Celebrancy with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and with Civil Ceremonies.

I work with couples to create wonderful and unique ceremonies that they will enjoy and remember for years to come. These ceremonies can include just the couple or their family and friends to make the day a happy and loving occasion.

As, a Celebrant I also give those you love the best send off at their funeral by conducting a service that pays tribute to and celebrates their life. I am calm, friendly and supportive and will listen and create a service that relfects the personality and wishes of the deceased and also those of their family.

CEREMONY STYLE

My couples are young and very much in love and often want a fun and informal ceremony that is at the same time memorable and personal to themselves and their friends and families.

I am happy to create, choreograph and conduct your personal choice of ceremony whether it's traditional, informal or has a theme such as ' the Vikings' or 'Game of Thrones;! If you love festivals or ancient customs you may be interested in my Handfasting ceremonies. You can choose to have a complete ceremony or pick out your own elements such as the Drinking Ritual or the Unity Candle.

The venue? It could be at hotel or a castle, in a friend's garden or at a festival or abroad. By a lake or in a woodland glade. It's your choice!

The Celebrant of our Dreams.

Gina

Archway House, Sherwood Forest | August 2019

How do we even begin to review Susan? Her help, enthusiasm, knowledge, everything was faultless from the first time we spoke to the big day itself! From the planning of the ceremony, the reviews and edits and meetings all the way through to our hand-fasting - Susan was there, patient and calm and energised about our ceremony. We cannot thank you enough for helping us to create the ceremony of our dreams, for bringing the props, for your perfect delivery and general care through what could have been a stressful 6 months of planning. You are everything we needed and more. THANK YOU. Stay in touch! x


What Susan says...

Wow! Thank you so much Gina! It was a total pleasure! I will certainly keep in touch! XX

A Good Send-Off

S.R.

Leicestershire | August 2019

Hi Susan

I have been meaning to get in touch with you to thank you so very much for taking my mum’s service last week. Everyone said it was a ‘good send-off’ – but that was down to yourself (and the Funeral Director) guiding and helping me make the necessary arrangements.

Thanks so very much again

Kind regards . .

A most genuine wedding!

Sarah and Ryan

Leicestershire | May 2019

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.

A Really Good Send Off!

Dear Susan, I wanted to thank you for my late husband’s service this week.
I, along with all our Family and all our Friends could not have asked for
a better send off for him and most of all I think he would have approved
which is no mean feat.
The folder you presented me with was very special and I will treasure it thank you.

Down on the Farm!

Rachael and David

Pretty Oak Farm Stoke Golding Leicestershire | September 2018

Due to my husband needing unexpected heart surgery we had to cancel our wedding whilst he 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. Thank you for providing us with such a personalised service Susan!

A most moving funeral

T T

Nottinghamshire | August 2018

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.

Now that the dust has settled we wanted to get in touch and say a huge thank you for Saturday’s ceremony.

Albeit that we are a little biased, for us it was absolutely perfect. Your introduction and your description of how we fell in love was stunning and we will treasure the folder that you gave us. We’re actually going to fill it with other speeches from the weekend and have it as a permanent reminder of a beautiful day.

Thank you again,

Andy and Sarah.

Thank you so much Susan!

Ingrid and Adam Smith

Belgrave Hall Leicester | December 2017

From the very beginning of planning our big day, Susan was instrumental to the process; very friendly, attentive, confident, inspiring and flexible.

We were planning our wedding in Leicester while living in Norway. Susan helped out a lot with ideas and suggestions for the ceremony. It was great to have someone who we completely trusted to put together a beautiful ceremony for us in our absence.

We would without a doubt recommend Susan to anybody who wants a friendly and committed celebrant for their wedding.

A very Special Day

Many thanks for your preparation, advice and support with my mother's funeral. You were very professional and efficient, which is very much appreciated at a time when emotions make dealing with even relatively straightforward matters seem an overwhelming task.
I also though your demeanor and calm manner on the day were excellent.
