Beth and Tom's Oathing Stone Ceremony conducted by Anne-Marie

“The service Anne-Marie provided from start to finish was personal, thorough and exceptionally professional. She left no stone unturned throughout the process and oversaw and explained every step to make sure we had the most perfect ceremony. Prior to our wedding, Anne-Marie spoke with both myself and my partner individually and together to construct a ceremony that truly encapsulated our journey. Nothing was ever too much to ask and she always made time for our queries. We had regular contact with Anne-Marie and even had meetings at our venue to ensure every detail was checked. Our day went better than we could have ever imagined, due to the exceptional work ethic and keen eye for detail that Anne-Marie has. We are so thankful to have chosen to have a Celebrant ceremony as it enabled us to bring our story to life for our friends and family and this was made possible thanks to Anne-Marie.”

Welcoming Ceremony

Absolutely amazing ceremony for my Grandson’s naming ceremony, Anne-Marie was amazing, she included all our family and close friends, including memories of special people. She made me cry, she made me laugh most of all she made the day so special for Elizabeth and Dylan.

Just attended a naming ceremony officiated by Anne-Marie. What a lovely ceremony! Her readings were beautiful and thoughtful, she made them relevant to the baby, did not feel like a generic ceremony. There was humour in there too, she got the balance just right. Would highly recommend Anne Marie for any ceremony!

Absolutely amazing. I lost my Dad and asked if Anne-Marie would conduct the ceremony at the graveside. She went above and beyond and made my Dads send off the best she could. I Couldn’t fault anything. And for that I’m so grateful. Everyone that attended the ceremony said how beautifully conducted it was. Would 100% recommend Anne-Marie.

From the first phone call with Anne-Marie to enquire about conducting our father’s funeral she put us at our ease and gave us confidence that the ceremony would be in capable and secure hands. Prior to the funeral itself, we had two lengthy meetings which enabled Anne-Marie to familiarize herself with our father’s character and the timeline of his long life. There followed regular email communication which ensured that on the day of the funeral proceedings ran efficiently and smoothly. Anne- Marie’s advice, attention to detail and professionalism helped us put together a very personal ceremony which was appreciated by family and friends alike and which did our father proud. Thankyou.

Thank you for everything you have done, it means a lot to me and my family. Even down to taking the time to get to know us and understanding things about us. Your compassion is so appreciated at a time so scary and upsetting for me, made more bearable by such a lovely caring kind person. Words sometimes do not seem enough but thank you so much, a beautiful service for my Esi-Belle. 

Dionne and family

Words alone cannot convey how very grateful we are for the beautiful service you created for my mum. You were so kind and thoughtful and receiving a copy of the service was very special. So many of our friends and family commented on how genuine and ‘real’ the service was – so a huge Thank-You from us all

Lisa, Patrick, Alice, Thomas, Peter, Rachel and Lewis
