The service for ***** funeral could not have gone any better and your dignified guidance throughout made the whole morning seamless.

I would like to thank you on behalf of all the family for all your efforts in orchestrating today’s service in *****’ memory. I do think it went as well, if not better, than we could have expected.  Particularly with your patience and understanding around the disruption caused by the delayed arrivals of some the attendees.  Pulling together such a fitting and moving tribute from the skeletal facts provided was an achievement in itself.

A Celebration of Life was the most fitting funeral for my Dad and Mandy’s delivery of the service was exceptional. After only meeting Mandy once for two hours to discuss my Dads life on the day of the funeral she spoke about him as though she had known him for many years it was so moving. On leaving the Crematorium everyone gave compliments to Mandy even though it was a funeral they were all uplifted by her personal touch most people said it was the best funeral they had ever been to

Thank you so much for capturing Mum’s character so well. She was a complex person, as I guess most of us are, and some aspects of her personality will have been familiar and loved by some and others by others.
There was something for everyone.
Your warmth and understanding shone through. It felt as though you could join us sitting around sharing stories and memories. Best of all, some of us left the service with a smile on our faces as well as the tears. …..
Thank you too for your professionalism. You put us all at our ease at our meeting and you made sure you avoided the tiny errors that can cause so much upset.
It means so much to us all to have given Mum such a good send off
Son. October 2021

Thank you so much for the wonderful tribute……. you read it with such understanding and sincerity that will be remembered by us all…….was truly grateful to you and thought it was wonderful, he had no idea what to expect.

Hi Mandy, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a wonderful service you conducted this afternoon for ****.  Being Church Warden at my local church, I have never been to a non religious funeral before and initially, I was a little hesitant as to how this would go.

I thought it was beautiful. The way you presented the service was so calming and in some respects, even though funerals are always sad, you made this enjoyable. Your ‘sermon’, if that’s still the correct word, was lovely to listen to and I was sorry it had to end.

Thank you Mandy the way you put over the service was brilliant, you talked about **** as if you knew her personally and had known her for years. The expression in your voice was so real and the empathy you showed was second to none. I am only sorry we did not meet face to face because even over the phone you encouraged me to talk about **** life and I can only imagine what we would of been like face to face. It was a real pleasure meeting you today and in normal circumstances I would of thanked you in the proper way and only way I know. You did me and my family proud today and I have told everybody that so thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.

Mandy was professional and compassionate. It was a pleasure to work with her. She created a service that was a true reflection of, and fitting tribute to, our late Uncle. The family greatly appreciate everything she did for us at a difficult time. February 2020

Mandy didn’t just do her job well, she was excellent. All who attended said that it was ‘spot on’. It was a day that we all dreaded and she helped to make it a lovely and memorable event with her warmth, empathy, humour and easy ability to get us to focus on what was needed. We would be very happy to recommend her unreservedly.

Thank you for the wonderful service yesterday you certainly did my dad proud.
You come into peoples lives when they are at their lowest point and you gently probe information about their loved one. Then transform all that was said into a great repertoire of memories which make family and friends smile, laugh and cry.
Everyone yesterday said how much they appreciated (enjoyed) the service so thank you once again.

The Memorial Service for our dearly beloved father was a wonderful, moving and inspirational experience. It was conducted by our celebrant with the utmost sensitivity and a complete understanding of the tone we wanted her to strike for the occasion. We will be forever in her debt for all she did for us and we cannot recommend her highly enough.

Mandy was brilliant from initially just talking with us about what we wanted and to delivering that. She got a feel for our family and that we wanted to remember my dad in a funny way the way he would have wanted. She added in some amazing quotes which our family still use today for comfort.

I am so pleased that we found Mandy to be the celebrant for our dad’s funeral. Her communication with us was sensitive, compassionate and not without humour. She gave us time and never pressured us with deadlines. All who attended the ceremony commented on how lovely she was, very skilled at striking the perfect balance. Her sincerity starts when you read her website. My dad would have been very happy with our choice and that’s the most important thing.

Once again thank you for all you have done for us over the past couple of weeks. Yesterday went better than we could have ever imagined and that would not have happened had you not been so supportive throughout.

Dear Mandy, 

after only a couple of hours meeting with us, I was truly amazed with the tribute to our dearly missed mum and wife … You captured the true essence of her. We had laughter and tears, both of which allowed each of us to grieve individually. Everyone commented on how well the service was. Thank you isn’t enough for the service you delivered

Dear Mandy,

Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful way you conducted the service for mum. Although a sad occasion, it was a true testament to her and she would have been so proud! It made it so much easier having you there, and it was a privilege to get to know you. Thanks once again from the family of …

Mandy was absolutely fantastic from the moment we met, during the planing stages and she suppassed our expectations on the day of the funeral. She really did help to make an extremely difficult time much more manageable whilst observing our personal requests. Guests on the day also commented on how wonderfully she lead the service. We have nothing but thanks and praise for Mandy’s kindness, support and professionalism and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to others who find themselves in need of a celebrant.

“Mandy 
Thank  you so much for conducting such a warm and poignant service for our family member. You really helped us make this a memorable event and one that the children and teenagers could feel part of and not too upsetting for them.  You helped us remember the good times whilst helping the children to feel it’s still ok to be sad. We all loved the rosemary  you brought with  you and taking time to talk to the whole family at the end. We will definitely recommend your services to other families. Many thanks”
