Having never been to a naming ceremony, let alone organise one, i was very grateful to find Laura when i did. She immediately put me at ease with her lovely, friendly personality (it felt like we had known her for years!!)
She really took the time to get to know my family, making sure everyone felt included and wrote the most beautiful bespoke ceremony i couldn’t have hoped for better!!
We have had so many lovely comments from friends and family since saying how much they enjoyed our daughters special day.
Thank you Laura xx
Perfectly pitched ceremony
We only found Laura 8 weeks before our wedding, after a false start with another celebrant who struggled to understand what we were looking for.
When we met Laura we both had an immediate sense that we could see her being part of our day.
After our initial meeting, Laura immediately demonstrated a clear understanding of our vision (which was personal but was quite light on detail on us as a couple) and gave us helpful nudges on ceremony structure and tone without forcing us down any particular route.
The script came together really quickly after our second meeting and after a couple of iterations, we were in great shape 2 weeks out from the wedding. What had been our biggest worry 6 weeks before became a part of the day we didn’t need to think about as we were so confident Laura had it under control!
The end result was a perfectly pitched and scripted ceremony which set the tone for a relaxed and fun day. We are so grateful to have found Laura and for her to have expedited the script prep in short order, and we found her very organised, prompt with replies and personable throughout the process.
We would very very warmly recommend Laura!
We were so pleased to have been recommended to Laura to carry out my Mum’s funeral service. Laura was so thoughtful, patient and attentive & I knew from the start that we were in good hands, It was like talking to a friend.
Laura guided us through the planning of the service and choreographed the many tributes beautifully which was no easy task as so many family members wanted to contribute. On the day she ensured that everything ran smoothly at the crematorium so we could just concentrate on the celebration of my amazing Mum’s long life which made a difficult day more bearable. Our heartfelt thanks Laura. Mum would have been so delighted with her send off.
