Grace is such a lovely warm and caring person and we can’t thank her enough for delivering such a lovely funeral service for my Grandad. From the moment we met Grace we knew she would be the perfect person to help us celebrate Grandad’s life and she didn’t disappoint. She came to meet us and sat with us for over an hour just chatting about Grandad and his life. She asked us about our memories of him and the special moments we’d shared together as well as his early life and work history. What we expected to be an emotionally tough meeting ended up with us laughing and reminiscing about the amazing dad and grandad he’d been.
When we received an email the following day with Grace’s eulogy attached for us to check over, we were amazed by how she had pulled everything we’d talked about into such a thoughtful, warm and well-written speech with the perfect balance of sentiment and Grace’s fabulous sense of humour.
On the day of the funeral, Grace was a real support to the family and delivered the most beautiful service that had us laughing and crying in equal measure. Everyone who came to the service said what an incredible job she’d done and that it was like she’d known him personally.
Thank you so much Grace for being so lovely and supportive and helping us celebrate Grandad’s life xx
Oh Hannah such lovely words and thank you so much. The compliments are lovely, but really it’s knowing that I’m getting it right for my families that is so important. Thank you. It was an absolute pleasure to be of service to your family and an real honour to conduct Granddad’s service. He was a total legend! :0) xx
Lizard, Cornwall | June 2019
When we first met Grace, at our proposed venue, we immediately liked her.
A wedding is (obviously!) an incredibly important and unique event for everyone, and planning your own is exciting, daunting and not just a little confusing.
We weren’t sure whether we wanted a hand fasting or other form of ceremony but when Grace explained the symbolism and tradition behind it, it seemed a natural choice for us. This excellent description of the ceremony continued through to the big day where Grace perfectly explained proceedings to all of our guests - many of whom had only ever seen ‘traditional’ weddings.
At every stage Grace helped us, offering suggestions and advice at our meetings and via email. Her calm, relaxed approach – mixed with a quirky enthusiasm - put our nerves at ease and I think encouraged us to make the ceremony our own, and embrace the excitement!
At no point did we feel pressured or hurried, instead Grace’s prompt responses to emails and considered replies reassured us that she was keeping a close eye on arrangements.
It was also the little touches; notes on the vow cards and a box of keep-sakes waiting for us at the B&B, which made us feel truly special and looked after.
Both Adam and I also appreciated Grace’s help with writing our vows. Her suggestions for what to say worked perfectly and we both confident in the words we spoke on the day.
We cannot recommend Grace highly enough, both we and all of our guests thought she did an absolutely fantastic job! BEST WEDDING EVER! Thank you Grace x
Oh man, you guys were such a pleasure to work with and your family and friends were just amazing, and so lovely to me, and pretty much all of the men admitted weeping as much as the girls! It was a very special event and my absolute honour to be your celebrant. I had a ball. Love peace and happiness to you both. Hopefully the candle won’t need lighting until 1st June 2020! :0) x

Whatever the type of ceremony, you’ve got some ideas, you want some more; you’re not quite sure what you want, but you know that you want to have a go at writing your own words, but you don’t know where to start and you want them to be the best; and you just want some good old fashioned customer service, making you enjoy the experience and feeling relaxed and reassured that everything is being taken care of, and that the end product is just as you’d hoped it would be, in fact it’s better than you ever dreamt. If your thoughts go something like this, then I could well be the Celebrant for you.
It only happens the once so we make it the best.
