“Thank you for your help in organizing our wedding ceremony, you were so organized and gave us freedom to design our ceremony which was very personal to us. You made us feel so comfortable and everything was made so easy with your professional approach. We will definitely be recommending you to all our friends. Thank you for making us a beautiful booklet to keep and cherish forever!!”

 

Keturah & David, Barnet, London, 3 August 2020

“We cannot thank Sue enough for helping us celebrate during such a difficult time! We had both a pandemic and family illness to contend with, but Sue helped us to feel as normal as possible and brought so much joy to proceedings. We really felt like Sue took a lot of time to understand us, both as a couple and individually, which helped the ceremony feel incredibly personal. (She even got a Star Wars reference in there!) We’ve been receiving compliments on the ceremony from guests ever since, and we’re just so glad that we chose Sue to be our celebrant. Thank you Sue!”

 

Nick & Hannah, Burgh House, Hampstead, London, 11 October 2019

 

“As soon as we met Sue for the first time we felt at ease in her company and were reassured by her professional yet warm demeanour. Sue guided us through the whole process and really spent the time to get to know enough about us so she could make the ceremony warm and personal. The feedback we received from our families following the ceremony was extremely positive and many of them even said that they wished that they had had a Humanist Ceremony themselves. We can’t thank Sue enough for making our day so special!”

“Thank you for EVERYTHING … you were fab. So many people said how wonderful the service was and how well you delivered it …”

 

Nikki & Tom, The Willow Tree, Bourne, Cambridgeshire, 20 July 2019

“We found Sue’s contact details on humanist.org.uk, and got in contact to arrange a call followed by an informal meet up over a glass of wine. We instantly knew Sue was the celebrant for us. Sue is warm, easy to talk to and a delight to be around which made spending time with her in the run up to the wedding such a pleasure. The beauty of a humanist wedding service is that it’s completely personalised and bespoke to the couple. We spent time over a couple of months together with Sue so she could get to know Tom and I, which in turn led to a bespoke ceremony script for our big day telling our story, our way, weaving in our friends and family along the way. The tone of the script was just perfect and bought a tear to my eye from day 1. In fact from the outset there was very little that we wanted to change about it which just shows how talented Sue is at what she does. Not only was the script perfect, but she was also a great support in other aspects of the wedding too. We really appreciated the support she gave us throughout the whole process, for Sue it didn’t seem like it was a job, it felt much more than that. From the planning to the service itself we can’t thank her enough for making our day so special and our friends and family also really enjoyed getting to know her after the service too. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a humanist celebrant, she’ll most certainly do an incredible job!”

 

Jade & Chris, The Old Finsbury Town Hall, 8 September 2018

“Thanks once again, Sue. You were fantastic throughout the whole process. We are now back in Brisbane, moved into our new home and back to daily life! We still have the memory of the wedding day in our minds. It’s our favourite day ever! We are so happy it went well and are so grateful to you for being part of it.”

 

Kristine & Oliver, Stoke Newington Town Hall, 25 August 2018

“We are so happy that we had a humanist ceremony. We met Sue a couple of times before the actual ceremony, and she went out of her way to make sure everything would run smoothly on the day. She wrote a very personal and moving script that made the ceremony intimate and special. Our family and friends from Norway we’re very impressed by the way the ceremony was conducted, and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We cannot recommend Sue highly enough. She had a big part in making our wedding day unforgettable, and for that we are extremely grateful.”

“You won’t find a celebrant more caring, flexible, reliable, and truly honoured to host your wedding than Sue. In fact, there aren’t enough adjectives in the dictionary to describe how wonderful she was in the lead up to the ceremony and on the day itself.

“So if you’re looking for someone who’ll treat you – and your family – as individuals rather than just another wedding couple, then Sue is everything and more. She was our one in a million and we were so incredibly lucky to have her host our day in her special, unique and incredibly personable way.”

 

Holly & Corey, The Drawing Room, Claridge’s, Mayfair, 9 December 2017

 

Sue was a pleasure to work with and helped us write a very meaningful and personal ceremony. She was so helpful with her suggestions and took time to understand what we wanted from the script. She was both friendly and professional, and made us feel so calm and relaxed on the day despite my wedding-day nerves getting the better of me. We both felt very comfortable in her presence and our friends remarked on how lovely and unique the ceremony was.”

“We are both writers and chose to have a Humanist wedding so that we could create a ceremony that truly reflected who we are and what we wanted our marriage to represent. Sue is a brilliant celebrant, a lovely person, and was a pleasure to work with. When we told her what we envisioned for the day, she offered expert suggestions on how to structure things so they ran smoothly, and she quickly became familiar with Indian wedding traditions and our favourite books. Our ceremony included Bollywood hits, dhol, improvised jazz, a Brazilian folk song, and traditional Indian wedding songs, all of which Sue took in her stride. Sue went above and beyond for us throughout the whole process, and the script she wrote for us was perfect. She also joined us for our pre-wedding celebrations, came along to a wedding rehearsal, and was a calming and reassuring presence on the day. Her delivery of the ceremony was both professional and moving, and many of our guests said they had never been to a wedding as personal as this one before.”

“A religious service was never an option for us so we opted for a humanist ceremony. We could not have been more delighted with our choice to have Sue conduct the ceremony. Sue understood the sort of wedding we wanted straightaway and was able to hold our hand through the process of getting the tone and script exactly right. The reading that she chose left barely a dry eye in the house and everyone was full of compliments for the way the whole ceremony was conducted. We could not recommend Sue highly enough.”

 

Eleanor and Tomás, The Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth, Wales, 1 July 2017

“Sue is a fantastic celebrant; she made our wedding ceremony feel special, personal, and moving. She has a skill for listening to and drawing out the key threads of personalities and this showed through in the ceremony itself. Our guests loved how much the ceremony reflected us and our shared values, and they enjoyed getting to play their own part in a joyful assent to the marriage. Meanwhile, Tomas and I feel we got to say out loud the promises we have made in our hearts. I unreservedly recommend Sue to you.”

 

Lucy and Tim, Rembrandt Gardens, Little Venice, London, 24 June 2017   

“We wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for making our day perfect. You worked so hard and were so sympathetic and flexible and provided us with the perfect ceremony in our perfect surroundings.”

 

Anne Marie & Pete, Pete’s mum’s back garden, Muswell Hill, 15 April 2017

“In 2017 Pete and I wanted to hold a pre-wedding ceremony in his mum’s garden. This ceremony was put together very quickly as Pete’s mum was terminally ill and we knew she wouldn’t be able to travel to Ireland that summer to make our wedding. We found Sue on Humanist.org.uk at the end of March, we loved her bio and knew she was the one for us from reading other testimonials. We didn’t hold out much hope of being able to find someone so suited to us for a ceremony just 3 weeks later. She replied almost immediately and sent us a questionnaire, asking us for some details and our story. We met her just a week later and within that time Sue managed to created a personalised, beautiful and fun ceremony. We were over the moon! The day went amazingly well and it wouldn’t have been such a special day if it weren’t for Sue. We only wished we could have brought her to Ireland for our Irish ceremony that July! All our family and friends that were there that day have always spoken about how amazing Sue was and how she made our day so memorable and meaningful.”

 

 

Kellie & Emma, The Prince Albert, Camden, London, 1 April 2017

“When we decided to have a humanist wedding we set about finding the right celebrant for us. Sue was perfect from the start. We sat down together and talked about all the things we wanted to include in our ceremony. Sue was enthusiastic, helpful and above all she really cared about making the ceremony about us. The day was everything we had hoped it would be and more. Thank you Sue for all of your time and effort, it was perfect. x”

“Jessie and I would like to say a massive thank you for everything you did leading up to the wedding and for executing the ceremony so well on the actual day. What we loved so much was the time and effort you took to get to know us, our friends and families and also the Sikh traditions that we used during the wedding. It made your delivery of the ceremony feel very genuine. The individual components of the ceremony, the reading, the singing etc, were great but what was really great was the way you managed to knit them all together with the excellent choice of words to convey why Jessie and I chose to get married and what we hope our marriage will be.”
