Tithe Barn, Old Ditcham, Hampshire | September 2018
I just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful ceremony you wrote for Fliss & Mark: the quotations you shared and your own messages about marriage throughout the ceremony were so sincere and thought-provoking. To bring all of us together in that way and in celebration, despite our different beliefs, was pretty amazing. The inclusive language you chose was so perceptively in tune with what we all had in common - and was so clearly and skilfully considered. Many wedding services I have been to were not like that at all. What an amazing and inspirational thing to be doing for people! I’ll praise your name to the rafters for anyone I know thinking about a more personalised ceremony.
Osmaston Park, Derbyshire | September 2018
We just wanted to express our thanks to you for such a beautiful, lovely and wonderful wedding ceremony you performed for us on 7 September. We have received many comments from our guests on how personal and touching they thought the ceremony was. How well you talked about us both, our story and all the little personal touches within it. We could not have asked for a better ceremony or celebrant to conduct it for us, it really was memorable in every way. Thank you once again.
Horsleygate Hall, Holmesfield, Derbyshire | July 2018
We both just wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you so much! The ceremony was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have asked for it to have gone better. After initially dreading standing up in front of people it is now the part of the day I hold dearest. It fitted our personalities and our day perfectly. You made us feel very comfortable and we had so many compliments on the ceremony.
Wedding ceremony in the garden at home, Ashbourne, Derbyshire | June 2018
So many of our guests commented on what a lovely service it was and how unlike any other they had been to. They mentioned how personal it was and just the right balance between being a formal ceremony whilst at the same time being so relaxed. We both had an absolutely amazing day and are so glad that we chose you to be our celebrant. Many thanks for everything.
Birdsgrove House, Ashbourne, Derbyshire | September 2017
We were looking for something personal, something that reflected what our marriage meant to us and didn’t want a formal approach or a reading of ‘just words’. Our experience with Sue was just perfect. She took time to get to know us both as a couple and individually, taking ‘our words’ and shaping them into a wonderful story. We wanted our children to be involved in the day and Sue offered up some really creative ideas on how to involve them in the ceremony. It meant so much to us to have our children play a role in our special day and offer ‘their words’. In the preparation and build up to the day, Sue kept the process, and the effort on our side, simple. We felt we were in safe hands and she took care of everything. Our friends all commented on just how perfectly matched the ceremony was to us, and how wrapped up they felt in the story that was being told by Sue. It was a surprise to us to receive all ‘those words’ in print from Sue after the ceremony – what a lovely way to look back on our day, the promises we made and the message we received. Sue is a warm and welcoming individual, someone who immediately feels part of the family. We can’t recommend her highly enough. Mrs & Mrs John Boult.
Lowfield Farm, Middleton-by Youlgrave, Derbyshire | September 2017
Thank you so much for leading our wedding ceremony. We really appreciated all your efforts from working with us to get the ceremony just right, to all your advice on making it go well and working for everyone. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted and so many people commented on how beautiful it was and just right for us. Thank you so much for everything.
Wedding ceremony in the garden at home, Sudbury, Derbyshire | June 2017
We loved every second of the day. It couldn't of been any more perfect! Thank you so much for making our ceremony so special and personal.
Horsleygate Hall, Holmesfield, Derbyshire | June 2017
We just want to say the biggest thank you ever for being part of our day, for putting us at ease and helping to create the most perfect, personal and special ceremony! Everyone loved how well it fitted us and the whole day was just wonderful, so thank you for everything you did for us, we will remember it forever!
Wedding ceremony at a private home, Rowsley, Derbyshire | September 2016
Thank you so, so much. How you managed to come up with the most perfect service in such a short time I will never know. We wouldn't have changed a single second of our day, it was perfect. Thank you.
Little Longstone Chapel, Derbyshire | May 0016
Thank you for really making our day so special. We had lots of comments about how personal the ceremony was and how perfectly suited it was to us. As well as everyone saying what a lovely person you are, we obviously agree with all their comments! You really helped us shape our wedding and we could tell you really understood us as a couple and put that into some special and memorable words on the day. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and are truly grateful for everything you did in the lead up to and on the day. Thank you!
Bear Inn & Hotel, Alderwasley, Derbyshire | May 2016
Thank you so much for all your work, it was a really lovely service and we got many compliments on our vows – people were surprised that we hadn't actually written them ourselves, they seemed so natural. Thank you for such a personal and moving ceremony.
The Swan, Shakespeare's Globe, London SW1 | December 2015
Thank you so much for an amazing ceremony. So many people commented on how special and personal it was to us and we have to thank you hugely for that. It was a magical day from beginning to end and thank you so, so much for helping to create a gorgeous atmosphere in a very special venue.
Amadeus, Little Venice, London W9 | September 2015
Thank you so much for your wonderful ceremony. It was perfect, and perfect in a way we never imagined. It was formal, intimate, moving, funny and created such a sense of warmth throughout the room. We received countless comments on how good our ceremony was from our guests, and is a period of the day that we will hold closely in our memory for years to come. We are both so grateful for all your time over the summer, your flexibility to our ideas and timing as the day drew near, and wish you all the very best. With all our love and thanks.
Amadeus, Little Venice, London W9 | May 2015
Thank you for all the work you put into writing our wedding ceremony. It was a pleasure to work with you, everyone thought we must have known you for years! We had such a fantastic day and the ceremony was a perfect balance of fun, love and seriousness – and jokes! You’ve been so brilliant, thank you so much for everything.
Devonshire Terrace, London EC2 | October 2014
We loved the ceremony that you wrote for us, and thank you for patience and for listening to what we wanted, and making it all so personal and meaningful to us. A special thank you for your help in writing our personal vows, we really wouldn’t have known where to start on our own! It was such an incredibly happy day for us both and for our families, and we thank you for everything that you did to create such a special ceremony at the heart of it.
Drayton Court Hotel, London W13 | May 2014
Thanks so much for helping us create such a personal wedding ceremony. The ceremony turned out even better than we hoped and everyone really enjoyed it – I think the laughter and the tears demonstrated that. Many people welled up, including my mum, who wasn't expecting to! Thanks for everything on the day and in the run up.
