We both really enjoyed the ceremony as did everyone else. (December 2016)
Simon was a fantastic celebrant, who put together a wonderful script for my daughters naming day. G (July 2017)
We had the most amazing experience, Simon really listened to what it was we wanted. Then on the day it was so personal and relaxed. My partner and I could not have wished for a better ceremony to introduce our daughter to our family and friends. E (June 2017)
I would just like to say thank you very much, the service was brilliant everyone enjoyed it and commented on how great it was, it made the night very special. K (November 2016)
Simon provided the perfect balance between informality and the magnitude of the occasion. He was so calm I think we all garnered strength from him and were able to enjoy the service and say a final goodbye to my dad. I also very much appreciated the way Simon encouraged us to take part in the ceremony. He really did a great job. (December 2017)
I would just like to thank you very much on behalf of the family , for your sensitive direction of today’s service for our mother. I believe the service was just right in terms of the balance between celebration and mourning. Everyone I spoke to commented that the Service was both sensitive and enlightening.
I think our mother would have approved. (September 2017)
…and more to perfection. A consummate gentleman – Simon Bull – who made the ceremony everything I wanted it to be – and more. Everyone present expressed the same sentiment. It will be long remembered. (July 2017)
We found Simon when looking for a local humanist funeral celebrant. He came across as very thoughtful, sympathetic and accommodating to our wishes of scattering the ashes at sea, which was his first time. Simon fully involved us in the review of the text and any other additional readings/music. We would be very happy to recommend him to anyone looking to organise a non-religious funeral ceremony. (March 2017)
Simon was wonderful from the very start. He was so empathetic and caring throughout. He was so thoughtful, even sourcing a totally appropriate image for the order of ceremony. He led us through an emotional but at the same time uplifting ceremony which would have been, we are sure, pretty much what our dear friend G would have chosen for himself. (December 2016)
I just would like to say thank you for making the day exactly what we wanted. It was a celebration of B’s life shared by people who knew him at different periods of his life. At the wake friends and family felt they now know him a bit better. I dreaded that day, but although there were tears there was also humour and warmth and above all the ceremony has been for me a wonderfully healing experience.
Thank you again
A and family (August 2016)
…very pleased with the way things went…..happy that her departure was delivered so well. (October 2015)
Thank you very much for conducting B’s funeral last week. It was just how we wanted it – simple and dignified.
When my father passed away in October last year (2014) I knew there was only one person who I would ask to conduct his service; Simon Bull. A friend, of whom I also knew, was a Humanist Celebrant. Through knowing Simon, I was aware of his kind, caring nature and how he feels about respect for others and the earth we live on. I was very honoured when Simon agreed to be the celebrant for my father’s burial. He spent time with my mother, sister and I to talk over what my fathers and our wishes were for the day, putting together an order of service with great consideration of our requirements. When the day finally arrived to place my father back into the earth, my family felt completely held throughout the service. Simon displayed such great empathy, compassion and care for my father’s memory, and for us as a family, we will be eternally grateful. I would strongly recommend Simon to any of the people who I know. He helped us celebrate my father’s life in such a way, that to this day, I still feel at peace.
