Gary, Lee and Kayla – Sunday 17th September 2017 – ‘The Spiced Pear’, Holmfirth
‘Your professional manner and the way you took the time to speak to all our guests was lovely!! Thank you so much for your wonderful organisation and pulling all our ideas together. We can’t recommend you enough! I want to do a review for you…where do you want me to write it?! Ps it was a pleasure to meet you. Gary Xx’
Jen, James and Jarvis – Sunday 20th August 2017 – Denshaw Village Hall, Saddleworth
‘Hannah was such an integral part of our wedding and so it was a natural choice for us to invite her back for the naming ceremony of our son, Jarvis. Much like for our wedding, we got a really personal hands on experience that extended well beyond the day itself. All in all, the work Hannah put in made the day even more memorable and special. James’
‘Thank you so much for making yesterday so wonderful, you really do make us feel so special during the ceremony. Also thank you so much for all of your help with the rest of the running of the day. You know us well and know when to give us little push in the right direction, including washing the starchy grapes! We had so many of our lovely friends and family commenting on how much they loved the naming ceremony and how they felt privileged to be a part of Jarvis’ day. I hope you enjoyed the cake, Jen’
Liz, Steve and Robson – Friday 7th July 2017 – Bradley Wood Scout Camp, Huddersfield
‘Neither of us can put into words just how incredible our little boy’s naming ceremony was. The whole process from first contacting Hannah was met with such warmth. The evening absolutely summed us up as a family, we could not have asked for a single thing more. We’ve had a lot of friends and family come up to us and say how brilliant the humanist naming ceremony was and how is really did sum us up perfectly. I would not hesitate to recommend Hannah to anyone who is wanting to break away from traditional or religious ceremonies. Hannah really takes everything you want and makes it perfect!
Thanks again, Liz, Steve and Robson’
Sarah, Phil, Walter and Arthur – Sunday 14th May 2017 – Clough Manor Hotel, Saddleworth
‘Thank you so much for your lovely email. It means the world to us that you think it went well and turned out just as we had planned it. I didn’t feel able to look up for most of the ceremony because I couldn’t bear to look anyone in the eye through fear of contagious crying, so I’m glad you felt that it went down as we hoped in the room. And thank you sooo much for all your hard work before and during yesterday. We had so many comments about how wonderful you were and well, we of course thought so too. Thank you once again and maybe one day our paths will cross again. All our love – Phil, Sarah, Walter & Arthur.’
Kim, Danny and Phoebe – Saturday 25th March 2017 – at home
‘When we first decided we wanted to hold a ceremony in honour of our daughter Phoebe, we weren’t quite sure what our options were, with neither of us being religious. We both knew that a christening or baptism was not something we wanted, however an alternative formal ceremony.
It was after a bit of Googling that we discovered ‘yourthreedays.com’ and instantly liked the idea of a humanist naming ceremony. It wasn’t something we had heard of before.
We made the initial contact to Hannah and it’s fair to day we were a bit apprehensive at first. Upon receiving Hannah’s first email response we were immediately reassured that we were in the right hands. From then on, all communication from Hannah was both professional and personable – we were made to feel at ease about the whole process. When the draft of the script came though, we couldn’t believe how perfectly Hannah had put everything together and it made us even more excited for the day.
The day of the naming ceremony arrived and Hannah was so calm, an excellent organiser and very professional. The ceremony exceeded both mine and Danny’s expectations and those of all our guests as well. Our friends and family all said what a fantastic time they had, very refreshing from the traditional “christening” type ceremony.
We thank you so much, Hannah, for making the day so lovely and memorable for us all. And we look forward to working with you for our future ceremonies.
Kim, Danny & Phoebe’
‘Dear Hannah, It was such a lovely naming ceremony you performed and I know everyone enjoyed the day. Thank you also. I appreciate you helping so that I could make the promises that I wanted to Phoebe. Best wishes for the future, Abbie xxx’ Message from one of Phoebe’s guide parents.
Carla, James and Emilia – Sunday 22nd January 2017 – ‘The Rope and Anchor’, Altrincham
‘Thank you so much for today!!! As you know, by now, I struggle with getting my thoughts down on paper/ my computer screen, but I really can’t express how grateful we both are to you. Emilia’s naming ceremony was absolutely perfect…and that’s Carla perfect!! Thank you for organising everything and making the day run so smoothly.
The humanist ceremony was beautiful and surpassed our expectations. We had so many positive comments about how personal it was, so I think the words you wrote and said really did matter in the end! Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into preparing them. It is certainly a day that we will never forget.
Thank you for everything and you never know…we may see you again if there is ever a second pitter patter of tiny feet!! Much love, Carla, James and Emilia xxx’
