From the moment we met with Sue, she ‘got us’. This quick understanding of our relationship made it easy for my quiet husband-to-be to relax into talking about our plans for the day and give Sue enough information to write our bespoke ceremony for us. Sue’s service was swift (well… she had to be as we only gave her 7 or so weeks to prepare from when we set our date

This lady is truly awesome – her attention to detail is exemplary and I can guarantee that your wedding will be the day you dreamed of, as was my daughters. Sue, you made the wedding day of their dreams and it was a day everyone is still talking about .

Carlton Towers | July 2018
Sue recently provided a beautiful ceremony for our clients who were flying in from Shanghai for their wedding at Carlton Towers. Despite the challenge of international communication and an extremely busy couple Sue provided a flawless service which impressed all our guests from around the world. We would not hesitate in recommending Sue and look forward to working with her again in the future.

First of all, thank you for contributing to our amazing day.
Your professionalism, kindness and attention to detail were delightful.

Thank you very much for creating and carrying out a truly lovely ceremony for our day, the words you put together reflected us brilliantly. It was great to meet you on the couple of occasions beforehand, getting to know you while you gently ‘grilled’ us on our relationship
Carlton Towers | August 2018
Susan was a fantastic wedding officiant. My partner and I were nervous as we were doing a destination wedding (we live in California) but Susan made us feel very comfortable through multiple Skype sessions. Her ceremony speech was warm, fun and heartfelt. We highly recommend contacting Sue if you’re looking for an officiant!

Susan was an absolutely wonderful celebrant. We were having both a wedding ceremony and naming ceremony for our two daughters on our big day. At our meeting she took down the finer details of our relationship and what the ceremony meant to us and the type of wedding we were trying to achieve- modern, lively, rustic and all about family, and she made the whole script personal, individual and humorous. We felt so confident in her service – so much so that we allowed her to keep the ceremony script a surprise, and as we are non-religious or spiritual, Susan was able to tailor the ceremony to our modern tastes. With the use of a sand ceremony for the girls naming part and a hand-fasting for our coming together… It was perfect – modern and so interesting. She was able to give us ideas about writing our own vows; she included stories about our lives together and the poem that she read out at the end had everyone filled with emotion. The comments I received on the day were that ‘this has been the best wedding I have ever been to’ and Susan’s ceremony played a big part in that

Sue officiated our wedding day a few weeks ago, and there are just no words to describe how amazing our ceremony was because of her. Sue was professional from the day we met her, so kind and approachable, nothing was ever too much trouble.
Sue spent time with my partner and I to listen to our story, how we got together and what happened in our lives to get us to where we are today. She incorporated this into our ceremony and it was just so so beautiful. Everyone at our wedding commented on how special and personal it was, so many said that they’d never been to a wedding like it.
I’d never heard of a celebrant before I met Sue, but it was the best decision we could have made. Thank you for making our day so perfect Sue, you deserve all the success in the world.

From the moment that we met Susan, both of us knew that she was the person that we wanted to lead our service. She is so full of passion in what she does and how she conducts herself and that really made us feel at ease knowing that the day would be perfect. Susan really made the greatest effort to get to know us both individually and as a couple. In doing so she really gained an understanding of how to produce a ceremony that was completely personalized to us, our guests and to the venue.
The day was simply perfect in every way. The sun was shining, which meant that we were able to hold the ceremony outside under the bridge. Susan arrived and set up extremely professionally and made me (James) feel at ease, despite my best efforts to stress over every little detail in the lead up to the service. She met with guests that had a key role to play prior to the ceremony so that everyone was clear on how to make all the transitions during the ceremony as smooth as possible.
The manner in which Susan carried out the ceremony made for a relaxed and jovial atmosphere with many laughs and joyous tears shared throughout in the way that she shared our stories with our guests.
Many of our guests commented on how fantastic the ceremony was and this truly set the tone for the rest of the most special day ever. We are both so grateful to the wonderful job that Susan did and there hasn’t been a day gone by when I haven’t thought about how perfect it was!

Just a little note to say a big thank you for all that you‘ve done for Dad and me over this past two weeks. Mum had made the funeral planning so straight-forward for us, but it was still such a relief to find such warmth and care from you during our meeting, and such attention to detail in making sure the service was right for us all.
I’ll admit I was apprehensive to hear Mum’s words read out by a relative “stranger” on the day, but you read them beautifully and captured Mum’s ‘tone’ – allowing us to hear her in them, and both laugh and cry.
Your whole approach on the day was so supportive and professional it really helped get us through the toughest of moments, so thank you.
Kind regards, Jo, August 2016
Manchester | June 2017
My apologies in the delay in writing to thank Sue, Chris and Fleur with all the help that was given to the family by you all.
You all made a difficult time easier to bear.
Sue, the service was excellent – thank you. Several people who were there remarked in particular about the way you led the service in a calm, gentle manner which they responded to with their own personal emotions.
To say thank you, as well, for being there for Laura especially, you manged to allow her to carry on herself with the reading just by laying your hand on her arm.
Chris and Fleur – silly but true – thank you for the humour you allowed us have.
Dad is missed more each day but thanks to you all his passing will be remembered with love, affection, humour and dignity.
Regards, Lesley, June 2017

Sue, I just want to say a massive thank you for organising and leading the service on Tuesday. Both Michael and myself felt that it could not have gone better, and was true to Carlena’s wishes. A large part of that was down to your professional and caring guidance, input and support – I felt I knew from the moment that we spoke on the ‘phone that you were the right person for us, and so it proved.
In addition to your planning, the perfect words and delivery, the recommendations for the Vale Royal Crematorium and the funeral directors (who were brilliant on the day) were also great.

Allan and me are in Spain,have been away for a few weeks to recharge our batteries. Still trying to come to terms with the sudden death of Mike. I just wanted to say THANK YOU. All the family were touched by the way you conducted the ceremony for our brother Mike. You handled it with respect,care and humour. All our friends remarked “it was as if you knew him”. How lucky we were to have you. I’m sure you will continue to guide others through what is a difficult time for everyone, as compassionately as you did for us. Once again thank you.
Regards and very vest wishes to you.

We had a wonderful wedding day and honeymoon. We are overwhelmed with how amazing it has all been!
Sue is extremely professional but also warm and clearly enjoys being a celebrant. As soon as I had the first meeting I knew Sue would be perfect. Sue took the time to get to know us both and really helped us to create a ceremony to suit our Wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and emotional and our guests felt it too, their comments have been very complimentary.

Delamere Manor Cheshire | August 2016
We got married in August 2016 and as we didn’t want a traditional church service, we were looking for a service which was personal yet meaningful to us.
We met Sue at our home and within a few minutes realised that she would be the perfect person to conduct our ceremony. We chatted with her about our feelings for each other and she got a real sense of ‘us’ as a couple and what marriage meant to us. We were so happy with the vows which Sue penned for us to read to each other, they were sentimental yet managed to capture our fun side too and on the day all of our guests said that it was one of the nicest wedding services they had been to. We especially liked our sand ceremony which Sue suggested at the end of saying our vows and that was something that everyone hadn’t witnessed before so it made it all the more unique and special.
We would highly recommend Sue if you want a beautiful wedding service which all your guests (and you) will remember forever!

Having done the ‘legals’ in Australia, we needed an intimate ceremony to celebrate our marriage in the UK with our loved ones. We found Sue online and from our first contact she set us at ease.
In spite of the miles, she conveyed a warmth and personal touch in her communications. Working closely with us, she created a ceremony that told our story and helped us to include a hand fasting.
Our day was fantastic not in small part due to Sue’s professionalism and attention to detail. Our guests all commented on how special the service was.
Thank you very much for making our dream day all that it could be.
We highly recommend Sue – she will make your day something special to remember for years to come.

The Plough at Eaton | May 2017
Sue was the celebrant at our wedding in May 2017. Sue provided a very professional service from our first meeting to the wedding day itself and really put us at ease. Sue listened to all our ideas, and was happy to adapt every detail of the ceremony to suit us. We really valued being able to put in our own spirituality and a hand-fasting- neither of which would be possible in a church or civil ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how personal the ceremony was. Thank you so much Sue, it was an amazing experience!

Sue was amazing . She spent time with us to get an understanding of our ‘story’ which she incorporated into the ceremony. She checked all the wording with us beforehand and she spoke clearly throughout the ceremony and put us both at ease before and during the wedding.
Quite a few of our guests said it was the nicest and most personalised ceremony they had ever been to. We would highly recommend Sue to anyone.

I thought I would drop you a line to say how happy we were with the ceremony on Saturday. Your words were beautiful and we both especially loved your reading at the end which was your surprise gift to us. So many of our guests said how wonderful you were and many commented that it was the best ceremony they’d ever witnessed. I knew you would make it special but wasn’t quite prepared for how beautiful it would be.
