Thomas, 20 November 2021

“Thank you again for such a lovely ceremony and also for the printed script and certificate. So many people commented on how different and personal the naming ceremony was. We may have started a trend!”









Leo & Ralph, 26 September 2021

“It was so wonderful to work with Caroline and Sue on the boys naming ceremony service. They are both so warm and a delight to work with – they totally understood the tone I wanted to set for the service and delivered it perfectly! Can’t thank you enough for making the day so special”









Hermione, 12 January 2020

“We are so glad that we booked Sue to conduct a naming ceremony at our daughter’s first birthday. She provided a friendly yet professional service from our initial meeting through to the days after the event. Sue was flexible with our needs, helpful when we needed advice, and delivered a warm and personal ceremony to what was a large group of people in our family home. We are keen to re-book with Sue for any future ceremonies…”








Frank, 31 August 2019

“Thank you for helping to make today so special for Frank. Your care and attention to detail was so evident from start to finish in the planning and the day itself. None of our friends or family had ever been to a Humanist naming ceremony before but so many people took the time to tell me how beautiful and fitting they had found it. I was touched by your present for Frank and also the carefully put together booklet which he can keep and look back on.”







Cillian, May 2019

“After Sue conducted a really personal, beautiful and fun pre-wedding ceremony for us in 2017, we knew we wanted her to conduct our baby son’s naming day. There was no one else we wanted. We even checked her availability before we chose a date as we would have gone with whenever she was free…Sue made our day so special, all our guests that had been at our pre wedding ceremony loved that Sue was with us again … Sue is very passionate about her work and is truly there for you 100%. If we are lucky enough to have more children, Sue is the only person we would want to conduct their naming ceremonies. She feels like extended family at this point and she sends the odd email to keep in touch and see how we’re all doing which we love.”





Marley, May 2019

“We are so very grateful to you for conducting Marley’s naming ceremony. You wrote a wonderful and very personal script that moved me, Theo and our entire family.” Sasha & Theo








Myla, October 2018

“It was fantastic having Sue to conduct our daughter’s naming ceremony. She is a lovely and kind lady and took time to get to know our family and what we wanted from the day. Sue was really helpful with suggestions for how the day could run and the ceremony itself was just what we wanted and so personal to our little girl. Thank you Sue.” Chloe and Harry








Freya, September 2018

“I wanted to send a HUGE thank you for putting on such an amazing ceremony! Myself and Freya had the best day, as did all of our friends and family! Not only were you amazing in the lead up to the event, but the script that you put together was absolutely beautiful and I don’t think there was a dry eye left in the room. I loved the flexibility of what could be included, and how it enabled me to get a lot of my friends and family involved with readings, mentions and guideparents. It’s a day we’ll cherish forever, along with the lovely pack that you supplied so that Freya will be able to read through her special day in years to come.” Kerry






Mahli Rae, July 2018

“Thank you very much for conducting Mahli’s ceremony on Saturday. It was absolutely beautiful, my guests really enjoyed it and commented on how lovely it was. Thank you for all your patience, advice and support throughout. I’m incredibly happy with how the ceremony went and it was just as special as I wanted it to be.” Rachel
