I would like to send my thanks for the excellent way you conducted my twin brother’s funeral ceremony, and helped to capture the real essence of the man. I admired the way you linked it all together so well, and calmly helped us to say farewell to him in such a fitting way. Thank you also for the Memento Script which is lovely to treasure.

From Sheila, following the funeral for her twin brother, Jim, July 2023


Thank you for depicting Jim so well at the ceremony. You were a lovely, calming influence and we felt safe in your hands.

From Liz, following the funeral for her brother, Jim, July 2023


Honestly, we can’t thank you enough. It was a beautiful ceremony and everyone has commented on how special it was. We had a very special and memorable day. Thank you so much.

Debs and Tony, married June 2023


I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful tribute at the celebration of my mum’s life. I know we had talked for some time about her life, but you talked about her as if you had known her yourself. You did it so very beautifully and we can’t thank you enough.

From Deborah, following the funeral for her mum, Val, March 2023


We began planning our naming ceremony with Leigh in 2020 and she helped us to plan a beautiful ceremony for our little boy that included family members reading and stories we wished to share. Covid disrupted the plans and Leigh patiently allowed us to cancel, reschedule and cancel, as family from abroad were unable to join us. Finally, in Summer 2022 we held our naming ceremony. Leigh delivered the ceremony beautifully with a balance of professionalism and warmth. Thank you.

Megan and Adrian, whose son Timothy was named, August 2022


Thank you so much, Leigh, for being our celebrant. It was so special and everything went so wonderfully. I wasn’t nervous at all apart from an expected amount of excitement and anticipation which melted away completely when I saw John and all my lovely family and friends. There was so much love in that marquee! Thank you for helping us to plan a ceremony that was just perfect and meaningful for us … and for all your patience with our changes of plans and last minute vows. You put us completely at ease and, in the end, it was like being married by a friend. So many people came to us and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was a perfect ceremony and a perfect day. Thank you so very much.

Louise, married to John, July 2022


Leigh! What can i say… it couldn’t have been better. We had a series of bizzare requests and last minute changes, an unusual ceremony and Leigh was the perfect master of it all. Nothing seemed too much for her, and she really made our ceremony. Her great, positive attitude and temperament is a fantastic gift. Cannot thank her enough!

Tim and Nikki, married September 2019


Thank you for all you did to make our evening so special, and for being so patient throughout our planning. It all came together perfectly and was everything we hoped for! Our guests made lots of lovely comments about the ceremony, about how very personal it was, and how refreshingly honest it was to have something that was not a church or register office wedding.

Becky and Robin, married June 2019


Thank you so much for being such a wonderful celebrant at Alice’s naming ceremony. Everyone commented on what a lovely ceremony it was and we are so grateful for all of your hard work. You made it a very special occasion for our family.

Hannah, whose daughter Alice was named, February 2019.


A huge thank you for everything you did to make Iris’s naming day so special. Everyone commented on how moving the ceremony was, and personalised to us. It’s a day we’ll never forget.

Lucy, whose daughter Iris was named, January 2019


Thank you for leading Chuku’s naming day celebration. As with Soulla before, we have been lucky enough to have you by our side personal and professional, a memorable occasion. We have been recommending you to friends and family.

Eleni and Udoka, whose son Chuku was named, September 2018


We have had three ceremonies led by Leigh (a wedding and two namings) and all have been extremely personal and special.

Ella and Michael, August 2018


Thank you for the beautiful ceremony you held for Iris’s naming day. We really appreciated the care you took to understand and communicate our values in the whole process, and the way in which you involved Iris’s godparents and our family and friends on the day itself. It felt really special and we will always treasure the memories of that day.

Shani and Jim, whose daughter was named in April 2018


Thank you so much for an absolutely perfect ceremony. It was everything we had in our heads and so much more! Your phrasing and timing for everything was perfect and we really enjoyed working with you up to the event as well.

Katie and Chris, married July 2018


Leigh did an excellent job from start to finish. She was warm and welcoming at the first meeting and created a heartfelt and personal service. We had countless comments on how lovely it was. We couldn’t have wanted anything better.

Trixie and Sam, married February 2018


Thank you so much for such a wonderful ceremony. It was absolutely perfect and we really appreciate you waiting with us for the rain to stop! It was so lovely working with you and thank you for all your patience with us in the lead up!

Lizzy and Max, married September 2017


Thank you very much for the ceremony. It was brilliant (even if the weather wasn’t!).

Matthew, whose son was welcomed and named, July 2017


Thank you so much for being our celebrant. It was a lovely ceremony and we had so many compliments afterwards. Several people said it was one of the nicest ceremonies they’d ever been to, and so personal, which is exactly what we wanted!

Rosalie and Mark, married July 2017


Thank you for a wonderful ceremony. We really appreciate all of the work and thought you put into making it a really special day.

Thank you for creating such a beautiful ceremony for us; everyone has told us how fantastic it was.

We wanted to say the BIGGEST THANK YOU EVER for being part of our wedding and for making it most special. We had the best day ever and the ceremony went down a total storm! So many people commented on how they loved how personal it was, and have even asked for the script. We were so pleased with the ceremony. The words were perfect and this is totally down to you.

Kate and James, married September 2016


Thank you so much for writing and doing such an amazing ceremony for our wedding. The ceremony was our favourite part of the day and many of our guests said how lovely it was. I think more people will be having humanist ceremonies now!

Jess and Julien, married September 2016


A huge thank you for the contribution to Jess and Julien’s ‘fairytale’ wedding! The ceremony was beautiful and so much more meaningful than a standard service. We all appreciated your calm presence and the warmth of your words. I don’t think many of their friends had experienced a humanist ceremony before, but I do believe there may be some who choose this approach to marriage in the future.

Lesley, mother of Jess who married Julien, September 2016


Thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony you helped us plan and prepare and officiated on. It was a very special occasion and everyone loved it. It was so meaningful to us because we were able to share our story and our feelings with those present, in our unique way.

Kelly and Peter, married September 2016


Thank you so much for our wonderful ceremony. So many people commented on how delightfully personal it was.

Lauren and Darren, married August 2016


We have had such amazing feedback about the ceremony. Everyone really enjoyed it. I thought it would be the worst bit of the day as I’d be nervous but it turned out to be my favourite bit of the day.

Anna and Jordan, married July 2016


Thank you for helping us with our special day! Cesar and I had the best day ever and I have never known so many people comment on how fantastic the ceremony was – quite a few tears shed I think!

Katy and Cesar, married July 2016


The ceremony that you wrote and performed for us was absolutely perfect. It was everything we had hoped for. On the wedding day itself, and ever since, our friends and relatives have gone on and on about how they thought it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever witnessed. You were brilliant and absolutely integral to making our wedding the perfect day it was.

Katie and Ruth, married June 2016


We just wanted to say an absolute huge thank you. We can’t stop talking about our wedding and the highlight for us was definitely the ceremony. We had so many amazing comments about how personal and beautiful it was. One couple who are getting married next year might even change their plans so they can do something similar!

You have been so wonderful from the very start and we enjoyed the journey as much as the ceremony  itself.

Thanks again for making our day so special.

Stu and Cat, married May 2016


Thank you for being part of Saffron’s special day. Your thought, compassion and attention to detail was super!

Thank you so much for your role in our wedding. You made the ceremony truly special and we couldn’t have been happier with how natural and at ease you made us and our guests feel.

Alexandra and Dan, married July 2015


We both wanted to say thanks so much for orchestrating such a beautiful ceremony. We have had so many lovely comments from guests. They describe it as one of the most beautiful ceremonies they have ever witnessed.

Mike and Dallas, married June 2015


We just wanted to thank you so very much for leading such a beautiful celebration on the occasion of Michael and Dallas’ wedding. You gave the occasion and air of dignity and significance but at the same time, warmth and humour. Thank you so much.

Lesley (Michael’s mum)


Thank you so very much for making our wedding ceremony so unique, special and personal for us. It was EXACTLY what we hoped for. We loved every single second. It was wonderful working with you. You made crafting our ceremony so easy. Thank you for being so open to our ideas. Our ceremony was the favourite part of our day and we will be talking about it with deep fondness for a long time to come. Thank you for making our wedding day so wonderful.

Thank you for such a beautiful ceremony. We had so many lovely compliments from family and friends who had never experienced a humanist ceremony before.

Kirsty and Gary, married May 2013


We are so happy with our wedding ceremony. Leigh wrote a very special ceremony, and we were able to personalise it so it was just what we wanted, which made the day extra meaningful for us. She has a lovely calm presence, and was very reassuring which helped to settle our nerves beforehand. Leigh conducted everything beautifully, it really made our wedding day. We got so many compliments from our guests who all thought it was a very memorable and unique wedding.

Eleanor and Craig, married March 2012


From the very beginning, we knew we’d found the right person in Leigh. She was so lovely, helpful and friendly from the first phone call, during our initial meeting and through the months leading upto the wedding, happy to answer all our questions and to offer suggestions for readings and vows. So many of our guests said that they’d never been to such a memorable, poignant, beautiful and personal ceremony. Some said they’d never felt so included as they had by Leigh’s words, and lots said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Leigh was very understanding of our needs and what we wanted from the ceremony. She spoke with poise and resonance and helped add to the joy, emotion and laughter of the day. She helped make our wedding vows everything we’d imagined and more. Thank you, Leigh!

Lucy and Ant, married June 2012


Having a humanist ceremony gave us exactly what we wanted for our wedding. It was truly personal, positive and unique. We loved every minute of it as did our friends and family, with many of them saying it was the best ceremony they had ever been to, and thinking about humanism for their own future weddings. Leigh helped us carefully plan our ceremony. We never felt rushed and felt that she was as keen as us to make sure that the ceremony fitted us perfectly. Leigh also conducted it beautifully. It really made our wedding day and we can’t thank her enough.

Liana and Carl married May 2012


Everyone commented on how wonderful Macey’s naming ceremony was and how nicely Leigh presented it. She adapted the ceremony to us as a family and it had the lovely, informal and relaxed ambience that I really wanted. Thank you for everything, Leigh.

Clare, whose daughter was welcomed and named, March 2012


Leigh helped us create a really special and unique ceremony which reflected the things that are really important to us. We felt supported by her in the lead up to the big day and on the day itself she was calm, and definitely helped us with our pre-wedding jitters! She was really open to all our ideas and helped make them a reality. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they’d been to, including their own!

Simon and Vicky, married August 2010


Leigh was absolutely fantastic as our celebrant. She worked with us (very patiently!) for our vows and customised the whole ceremony very professionally. We had countless comments from guests on how much they enjoyed it and felt it had just as much resonance and meaning as a more traditional ceremony. We would love to use Leigh again for other important ceremonies in our future.

Jonathon and Inez, married July 2010


Leigh was very helpful and understanding to our needs and also very supportive! On the day she was calm and helped us remain calm! We used Leigh for our blessing, having already got married abroad and she fully understood our preferences and choices. It was a pleasure to have Leigh perform at our marriage blessing.

Lara and Michael, married September 2009


What a fantastic day. Thank you, Leigh! You really captured what we wanted to say and brilliantly put it all together into a beautiful ceremony. We have wonderful memories we will treasure always.

Clare, whose three sons were welcomed and named, September 2006


Leigh acted as a celebrant for my daughter and my two nieces on their naming day. She came to the house to gather the  information needed to conduct the ceremony, drafts were sent to us before the day to check, and she was extremely helpful. The whole experience was very personal and Leigh truly reflected the occasion. It was just what we wanted and we would not hesitate to recommend her.

Diane, whose daughter and nieces were welcomed and named, August 2008.


Our wedding ceremony was exactly what we had hoped – personal and meaningful to us and our families, plus we were able to include our own ideas and memories, making it even more special and ‘just for us’.

Juanita and Nick, married September 2008


Neither my wife nor I wanted a religious wedding but we did want our family and friends to join us and be part of a ceremony that celebrated our feelings for each other and allowed us to express the things we placed greatest value in. We were both glad to have had Leigh as a humanist celebrant both before our wedding day to help us plan and advise on the wedding celebration content and then, on the day, to take charge! We found her to be very knowledgeable, well organised and reassuring and I would recommend her to anyone thinking about a humanist ceremony.

Giles and Caroline, married September 2008


Leigh was superb at every stage in the process of planning our wedding ceremony. She was full of helpful and creative ideas and suggestions, extremely flexible and professional in fitting in with our needs, and her experience allowed us to relax and enjoy the day. Working with Leigh really helped to make our day special and unique.

Tom and Ruth, married June 2010
