I just wanted to send my heartfelt gratitude to you for your amazing contribution to my family’s recent sad occasion of committal for my dear Mother, Margaret Hampton.
Although it was an extremely sad and difficult time for me and my family/friends, you made it more bearable by giving an uplifting and enjoyable presentation of Mum’s life. You brought it together so professionally with great timing and the use of your lovely speaking voice. I was also so impressed and delighted at your beautiful singing voice during the hymn..Mum would have loved hearing you sing with great gusto and enjoyment.
Thank you also for being there listening to our stories of Mum and understanding the great woman she was. You were so easy to talk to and you brought out past memories with ease.
Thank you so much for the loan of the memory tree. This proved to be such a lovely way for people to say how they felt about Mum. It gave me and the family lots of pride and happiness reading all the true to life and sometimes funny comments.
Finally, once again, thank you Louise for your precious time on 28th June 2022 and for uplifting us to move forward in the future.
I hope you can use this as a recommendation for future events you may have, as I would have no problem in giving you the highest praise for any occasion you may host.
I wish you a long and happy future and send kindest regards

Louise officiated as Celebrant at my darling Mum’s funeral. From our initial meeting Louise put my family at ease and made it a lovely experience to talk about Mum and her life. My son also attended this meeting by zoom call from Australia along with my elder daughter.
The funeral flowed along so well with Louise leading and guiding us through. Also her amazing singing voice managed to lift us up on what was such a sad day. All in all Louise was a great Celebrant. She is caring and calming and my family would have no hesitation in recommending her for any occasion.
Perfect Naming Day
Thank you for making our Naming Day so special for me and O.
I got lots of great comments afterwards saying how lovely the ceremony was, and that it was different to what people had experienced before, in particular they enjoyed how personal it was to us.
Thanks also for all your help in washing up, it definitely wasn’t part of your job description! 😁
