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 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. 

Family. July 2019

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.

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”
