Jess and Chris – May 2018

“Kevin was fantastic, he has a great presentation style and judges the room well- he even coped with noisy rain on a marquee! He also wrote a great, very personal script which for us made the day and all the guests kept commenting on as being the best they had heard. He is very personable and made us feel entirely comfortable throughout the process of preparing the ceremony and we would recommend him to anyone.”

Nina & Sam – September 2017

We really wanted to thank you for such a beautiful ceremony on 2nd September.  It was everything we hoped it would be and oh so much more…! Full of warmth, laughter, sentimentality and emotion, we loved it.  The feedback from our guests was remarkable, many had never been to a humanist ceremony and thought it was wonderful.  It was particularly good for those guests who aren’t as close to Jules and me to hear all about our journey.  You were excellent and I will be recommending you wherever possible! I hope you enjoyed it too.”

Victoria & Jules – September 2017

“A year ago to the day you brought two families together, with love and thoughtfulness. Your beautiful words brought tears to many an eye.

A perfect wedding.”

Alice & Matt – May 2017

“A huge thank you for conducting the ceremony at our wedding in May at Port Eliot. It was important to us to have a humanist service but what you gave us went far beyond whatever we had hoped for beforehand. Many of our friends and family have since approached us, telling us how much they liked the service with the perfect blend of seriousness, laughter and joy, and we can’t thank you enough for that. Thank you also for the copy of the service – a lovely wedding present and memento of the day.”

Lindsey & Chris – May 2017

“Kevin was absolutely amazing. He made our wedding about us and was totally professional yet caring all the way through even whilst the ring bearer cried through most of the ceremony (our dog). Virtually all our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to. Even the most hardened had a few tears. We enjoyed it so much we want to do it all again. We cannot thank Kevin enough for making our day so special.”
