2012

 

Claire, Paul, Josephine and Emily – 2nd December 2012 – The Mews Hotel, Wakefield

 

Hannah created a fantastic naming ceremony for our baby girl that encompassed everything we had wanted. We felt involved and consulted throughout the whole process. I think what made it so special was how Hannah made it so personal to us, giving us help and suggestions but ultimately allowing us the control. From our initial meeting to the actual day and beyond Hannah made us feel special and important because she really does care and throws herself into the ceremony. She is friendly and enthusiastic and when we finally decide to get round to tying the knot she will definitely be the first person we contact as we’d only want the best! Thanks again Hannah. Claire and Paul Xx

Hannah made our day perfect. She got to know us and made the naming ceremony very personal. I cannot recommend her enough. Pippa

Hi Hannah,
We had a fantastic day, thank you so much for everything. Soooo many people have told us how much they enjoyed the naming ceremony. I think it was new to a lot of them! It was such a relief to have you there and know that you knew how to do things ‘just right’.

 

Our very best wishes,
Kate, Dave and Grace x

 

Jo, Dale and Red – 30th September 2012 – The Coach House Studios, Wirksworth

 

Thanks Hannah. You were great. A true professional and it was reassuring for me to feel you in control so that Dale and I could be with family and friends. We are exhausted! It was all we hoped for and more and so many people said it was such a special naming ceremony.
Minnie was marvellous! You were marvellous. Quite happy to give you a reference although they must be stacking up by now!
Love and Light, Jo, Dale and Red x

Thanks once again,

Tim, Ellie and Billy – 4th August 2012 – Rotherham

 

Thank you so much for making Billy’s naming ceremony perfect! It was everything that we hoped it would be, fun, personal and all about Billy and welcoming him to the world. Throughout the ceremony close friends and family were made to feel involved and special; you really made an effort to ‘get to know’ us in the preceding weeks and this was apparent during the ceremony. The delivery and content were just perfect. Everyone has since commented on how beautiful the humanist ceremony and day was. We knew that you were just what we were looking for, after the first conversation; someone enthusiastic, passionate and interesting, oh and patient!!Thanks for making the naming ceremony everything and more that we hoped it would be.

Meredith, Mark, Vaughan, Laurus and Wylie – 3rd August 2012 – Legh Arms, Macclesfield

 

Hannah was the consummate professional in leading the naming ceremony for our three boys. At every stage of the process, from writing scripts to lighting candles, Hannah made everything easy, fun and comfortable for us as a family. Our day was truly wonderful and Hannah played a big part in making it so personal. Many of our guests were moved by the humanist ceremony and commented on what an unforgettable experience it was. Thank you Hannah, what a gift you gave us!
Meredith and Mark

 

Gavin, Pru and Isabelle – 29th July 2012 – Rutland

 

Dear Hannah
Thank YOU so much for making it a very special day. It was everything we had hoped for. You made a great impression, before, during and after the naming ceremony. We had put lots of thought into the venue and guests etc, and it was lovely to see that it was all worthwhile. The ceremony itself was by far the best bit of the day. Everyone couldn’t stop talking about it afterwards!
Thank you once again

Thank you

Cheryl, Dean and Evan – 24th June 2012 – Mosborough, Sheffield

 

Hi Hannah
Thank you for a fantastic day. Absolutely everyone said how heart-warming and personal the humanist naming ceremony was. They all thought it was the best naming they’d been to, and far better than a Christening. Most people even thought you were a friend because you were so natural. For Dean and myself it was just an amazing experience, far better than we could have hoped for. I’ll definitely be back in touch when we get round to baby number 2 :o)
Thanks again for making yesterday so very special

Simon, Nicola and Stanley – 17th June 2012 – Ockbrook, Derby

 

Thank you so much Hannah for making our day so perfect. It was just what we had hoped for and so much more personal than a christening would have been. Lots of people have commented on how lovely it was.
It would be a pleasure to send you a testimonial and some pics. I’ll get something to you shortly.
Thanks so much again.
Lots of love,
The Rs xxxxx

‘Thank you for the wonderful naming ceremony. We had a wonderful day. It far surpassed our expectations. Jon and Alexandra’

 

‘Thank you for a lovely naming ceremony, it felt really special.’ Stacy and Tim (guide-parents to Scarlett and Jacob)

 

Jonathan, Tammy and Martha – 1st April 2012 – Peak Edge Hotel, Chesterfield

 

Wow! What a wonderful day we all had 🙂 The thought provoking questions from Hannah gave her the answers to write the most incredibly personalised naming ceremony for Martha: Martha’s traits, our hopes for her, what she meant to our family, how she’d changed us all. We enjoyed readings that I’d selected myself and the ‘Little Twinkles’ were able to sing Martha’s favourite song at the start of the service. Certainly a highlight for me! Hannah created a wonderful poem for Martha’s brother to read. We only passed on words given to us by the boys – and there it was! Hannah had promises from all the guide parents, all individual to them. These meant a lot to all of us. She was a complete professional from start to finish. I truly knew we were in safe hands. Hannah was at the venue with plenty of time to chat to those doing the readings, and to make sure the room set up was as it should have been. It was a wonderful experience. We would love to do it all again!!! We would highly recommend Hannah to all our family and friends. Tammy and Jonathan

Our little girls’ naming ceremony was amazing and that was all thanks to Hannah. From the very beginning she made it so special for us as a whole family. Thinking of the script she made still makes me cry now. It was so honest and raw. It had every one of our guests feeling emotional afterwards and I still get compliments to this day on what a lovely day it was even if they had never heard of a naming ceremony before. My cousin told me that now she wants one for her children. But Hannah’s service went much further than just the ceremony. She stayed behind and spoke to our guests which was lovely of her and even though it was the very first time we had actually met her me and my fiancé felt we already knew her because she is such a warm welcoming person. We loved her so much we spoke about her performing our wedding. We would recommend her to anyone that wants their day to be extra special. Hannah gives your day that special touch of magic to make fabulous family memories. Micheala

 

‘Just for my part I’d like to say a big thank you. As I must confess to a bit of apprehension beforehand about the ceremony, but your kind personality and professionalism soon put me at ease and I suspect also everyone else involved. So once again, a big thank you. Simon’ (guide-parent to Olivia)
