The Charnwood Arms, Coalville, Leicestershire | February 2017
'Evelyn was very professional and extremely helpful in preparing our naming day for our son. Meeting up prior to our ceremony meant we could meet her and put forward how we wanted things with her guidance. She is a wonderful celebrant and wouldn't hesitate to contact her again or recommending her to others that want something a little different - Thank you' Sadie and Islam
Parents' garden, Willoughby on the Wolds, Leicestershire | July 2017
' Evelyn is a wonderful celebrant. From the first communications, to sorting out the finer details of the day Evelyn was patient, accommodating and encouraging. We had many different ideas we wanted to include in our day and Evelyn managed to tie this all together in a very personal ceremony. I couldn't recommend anyone more! Thank you Evelyn for making our day so special.' Charlotte and Michael
And from the mother of the groom!
'Thank you very much for conducting so well Michael and Charlotte's wedding on 29/7. It was moving, loving, funny
in places and very meaningful to family and friends. For Richard and me it was a wonderful and joyful ceremony, indeed the whole day stands as one of the happiest in our lives. Thank you so much for your important part in it, celebrating Michael and Charlotte's commitment to each other. Best wishes, Laura (Michael's mother)'
Scraptoft Hill Farm, Leicester | June 2017
'We used Star Ceremonies for our wedding and it was perfect. From the first stage of planning to the wedding itself, Evelyn is a helpful, professional and kind person, she helped make our wedding the perfect day, even the guests were saying how good she was.' Vinno & Briony
Markeaton Crematorium, Derby | June 2016
‘…everyone we spoke to at the Wake following your beautiful delivery of the Eulogy for Dad, said what a lovely service it was, and that it did feel like a celebration of his life, not a mournful occasion. I know that my Sister, Brother and step Mum were all in total agreement from the time you spent with us and went through what we’d put together to the point of greeting us at the Crematorium Door, even down to what you chose to wear, and helping us through the Ceremony itself, you were an ideal choice of celebrant.’ Andrea Roberts
Grandparents' garden, Wilbarston, Northants. | August 2017
Evelyn was the celebrant for our daughters naming ceremony. She was wonderful, very easy to talk to when planning the day. She listened to all our ideas and suggested many things we hadn’t considered which really added to our day. She was friendly and really took the time to get to know the key members of our ceremony and make sure everyone knew what they were doing. We highly recommend her and will certainly call on her if we ever hold another one!
Tower Brewery, Burton on Trent | January 2017
'What can I say? You were so with us from the first meeting, excited and very positive which was amazing! You really listened to what we wanted and needed from our wedding. It was wonderful to have such a hands on experience to shaping our ceremony exactly as we wanted it, being able to bounce ideas off you and get your expertise was so helpful. You crafted a beautiful ceremony - loads of people cried! I would never have thought that possible! You helped us to have the most perfect day in our own imperfect way! Which was wonderful!
I couldn't have hoped it would go as well as it did. Guests were messaging me throughout the week still buzzing from the night! We wouldn't have changed a single moment. It was the most perfect day. And it wouldn't have gone as smoothly if it weren't for you! Thank you so so so much!'
Oh gosh! I am an artist/celebrant so I guess I do veer towards the quirky locations and creative ideas for weddings, and natural burial grounds and other locations for funerals.
I’m as likely to lead same sex weddings as any other and love celebrating diversity and openness to different cultures and philosophies.
I also love helping people to create a ceremony for a more unusual life event that’s important to them.
I guess I'm a pretty relaxed celebrant!
