Kevin and Karen – Silver Wedding Vow Renewal at their Beautiful Home

Hi Anita

Sincere paragraph writing cause effect apologies for the delay, but as you may have gathered our feet have not touched the ground since our vow renewal and holiday!!!

Thank you so very much for your help, service and professionalism at our home on the 11th. We didn’t realise how excited we had become before the renewal ceremony and the whole day and evening flashed by so quickly.

Our friends (and our surprise family guest) were extremely moved, considerably charmed by the whole event and the tone was set for a very special, enjoyable evening. I am hoping you felt that the service went well – on our part, it was everything and more ….. thank you for such a memorable occasion.

Needless to say, should you require any reference for future clients please do not hesitate to give my mobile number.

Once again, thank you – our day was perfect.

Kindest regards – Karen, Kevin and Lauren x x x

David and Xiaolin’ Spring Wedding – In A Beautiful Garden in Regents Park

Dear Anita

Our thanks to you for coming to our wedding yesterday and being such an important part of what, for us, was a very memorable and treasured day. It was a genuine pleasure to have you there with us as our celebrant to share in our joyous occasion.

We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did. We had a great time and the day went as well as we could have hoped. It could not have turned out better. Even the weather did the right thing for us! And your voice held out so well!! Well done.

Thank you so very much for your kind card and generous gift. That was not at all expected and so is much appreciated. We look forward to putting a treasured photo in it soon.

Once again, thank you for officiating and thank you for your very kind gift.

Love and best wishes

Xiaolin and David

Marcus and Emma – Overlooking the Hills in Marlow

When we first decided to have a celebrant perform our wedding ceremony we were unsure exactly what to expect so it was a huge relief when we met Anita for the first time and knew immediately that we had made the right decision. From that first meeting Anita was always available with words of guidance when we were writing our vows as well as helpful advice and ideas on organising our big day.

When it came to the big day itself we could not have imagined a better ceremony. Anita worked not only with us but also with our friends and family that were giving readings during the ceremony and as a result of her support everyone knew exactly what they needed to do. Her friendly yet confident manner put everyone at ease and the wonderful words she had written allowed all the elements of the ceremony to flow perfectly. All our guests agreed that our ceremony was one of the most touching and personal they had been to.

We cannot recommend Anita highly enough. Thank you again Anita for helping to make our big day so special.

Shaun and Kennie – The Hottest Day for a Ceremony by a Preserved Windmill

Hi Anita,

We were so very lucky to have found you! You made our ceremony such a unique, intimate & personal one. How you incorporated our little stories into the words made the ceremony all the more special. You are so easy to work with and we really appreciate the way you have guided us in writing our personal vows, giving us gentle pushes here & there to nudge us in the right direction. We couldn’t have done it without you. Everyone write an essay on terrorism in India at the wedding couldn’t stop saying how lovely the ceremony was. It has been a real pleasure having you at our wedding! We sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Hear from you soon!

Toby’s Naming Day

In Tansor’s lovely old Village Hall in beautiful sunshine

“You played an important part of our son’s special day, and will therefore always hold a very special place to us. We can’t thank you enough for your lovely words and reassuring glances during the service, and for even helping to keep Toby entertained during our readings (!). You have been so incredibly supportive and you were always on hand for advice and guidance – both before and during the ceremony.”

Dan & Fiona’s Wedding Ceremony

A rainy June afternoon on Reigate Heath

…we got a good feeling about you from the outset, and you were very friendly, approachable, kind and warm. I felt working with you very smooth, you worked with us to make sure the ceremony was meaningful to us and tailored to us. I think you know of us now we are not the quickest to reply and stick to deadlines (again very sorry!) so it was good to get the gentle nudges you gave when we needed to write our vows and send them to you. Thank you for all your help into making it the right ceremony for us.”

Georgia & Dave’s Wedding Ceremony

A really hot summer’s day in a rustic old barn in Marlow

“Thank you so much Anita for making our day that little bit more special. We were both so thrilled with everything you did for us, running up to the wedding and on the big day. So many guests have commented on how personal the service was and how well you conducted the whole ceremony and Anne, Dave’s mum said it was the best service she had heard. I am so pleased we chose the sand ceremony as it is a beautiful reminder of the day and included our families in the service. The service was heartfelt, personal and with a touch of humour. Your calming influence made such a difference and you managed to put everyone involved in a state of ease. We could not rate Anita highly enough.”

Hi Anita

“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for being such an important part of [Georgia & Dave’s] special day. I know that you worked hard with them prior to the day to craft such a beautiful and personal ceremony. My daughter’s wedding was the first wedding conducted by a celebrant that I had attended and so I was apprehensive beforehand about the emotions the ceremony would evoke compared to the more traditional church service. I am pleased to say that these fears were unfounded and the ceremony was the most touching and emotive wedding I have attended. With your help Georgia and Dave had the wedding day they dreamed of in a lovely setting. I hope that I get the opportunity to attend another wedding (or possibly naming ceremony!) that you conduct.”

Claire & John’s Wedding Ceremony

An English country garden in Clavering

“…The ceremony was beautiful thank you so much, you were fantastic with the boys at the rehearsal and that reflected on how they were during the ceremony. Apparently everyone was in tears, even the men! But I couldn’t see it because my eyes were so full of tears!”

Martin & Dawn’s 18-year Vow Renewal Ceremony

Dusk, in the rose garden of the Maidstone Hilton

“Dearest Anita,

Where should I start…you are amazing! You arrived and took complete control and I stopped stressing! The evening was beyond my wildest expectations and despite my concerns that it was indeed a celebration and not a funeral (not a dry eye in the house) everyone has commented that it was the best “wedding” they have ever been to. I have also been asked where I found you ;-) and I know that I will be asked for your number when my friends marry! Sadly back to work and reality today (I wish I had your job) but wanted to give you the biggest hug and thank you for the best day of my life.
Love Dawn xx”
