‘Ric and I can’t thank you enough for enabling us to create our perfect wedding day.
Choosing to have a humanist ceremony was absolutely the right decision: it allowed us to personalise our ceremony entirely and ensure everything included was truly meaningful to and right for us. For us, the humanist ceremony was the centre point of the day: the main event, the most important and symbolic – our true wedding ceremony. So being able to make it our own was crucial.
You gathered all the right information and put so much effort into crafting a beautiful ceremony, allowing us freedom to input and adapt as well, which was perfect. It flowed and built momentum, tastefully and with all the gravitas a wedding ceremony should. We were able to include people close to us as well. It really was the epitome of bespoke and consequently meant all the more. We will treasure the words of our wedding forever, knowing they were just for us and true to us. The vows we made to each other in our humanist ceremony were unquestionably our wedding vows.
I had concerns about having both ceremonies on the day, but the humanist ceremony was so clearly the important, focal, conclusive ceremony that actually it wasn’t a problem at all. I have no doubt our guests saw the humanist as the real wedding: so many people have commented on how it was the best wedding they’ve been to, even after 40 years of wedding attendances. Another guest said she wished she’d known humanist ceremonies were an option.
Not only are we delighted we decided to go with the humanist ceremony, but also that we chose you as our Humanist Celebrant. You guided us beautifully, not only in writing the ceremony, but in putting together wonderful vows and listening to our opinions. I was especially impressed with the amount of thought and consideration you gave to our ceremony, and planning the flow of time around the ceremony as well. You counselled us about the day, helped us in our times of concern of how others might see things, and gave great and wise insight in to the process, which I was especially grateful for.
I am so, so impressed and happy we chose you. It was just wonderful and wouldn’t have been had the ceremony not been so perfect. I think the work you put in around the ceremony goes in to making the whole day better too: relaxed, happy couples who understand and know what they’re doing, why, and have been able to craft their own wedding (with your expert help) are always going to have a more positive, meaningful experience. And on the day you were relaxed, confident, helpful, flexible, funny, the utmost professional. Just brilliant.
Even my Mum – a big sceptic – was happy. And that probably says it all.
Thank you so much, we couldn’t have asked for more from you. It was a dream. So, so, so very worth it. You should charge more!!
Our fondest wishes,
Becky and Ric’
