“ Thank you so much Emma....
You are such a special person. You wrote such beautiful words, I really can't express properly what it meant at the time and what it still means now. We all felt mum was with us. Thank you again for shining your beautiful light for us"
"..It sounds awful, but we were dreading our wedding, by the time we met Emma, there had already been family disputes about who was doing what on the day...we didnt want either of our families or step-parents feeling excluded. Emma gave us the most wonderful ideas and suggestions that made all our family feel equal and included, everyone thought it was perfect."
“...the funeral was conducted with a depth of understanding and thoughtfulness that is rare, it was such an uplifting service, even though we were all heartbroken we laughed, there was even clapping at the end!"
“In my line of work I see a LOT of weddings...the wedding service I heard Emma speak at in 2014 remains the most moving one I've seen yet"
"Dear Emma, it is not often I feel compelled to write letters but I wanted to congratulate you on the most perfect ceremony!
...."As a retired registrar, I have conducted hundreds of marriage ceremonies over the years - the ceremony you delivered was inspired! - something very special indeed!
"There are no words really that can do justice to the way Emma speaks, she painted the most beautiful picture of us - our wedding service was fabulous!"
“To have my Fathers amazing, full, and varied life, spoken about in the most beautiful way, celebrating all his achievements means a lot. It's so ironic, he wasn't there because he would have LOVED what Emma
said about him"
We had never heard of a family blending ceremony; "Having a ceremony to formally bring mine and my partners children together was lovely (my partner and I had no interest in being married having both been married before even though we love each other to bits), so having that recognition that we were all one big family was important, thank you Emma"
"Thank you for connecting us with Emma. She absolutely listened to us, and captured the essence of my dad so perfectly as she carried us all through the service. We felt blessed that she was the Celebrant you suggested to help us celebrate my dads life, while getting us through a very difficult day - heartfelt thanks"
"The eulogy was exactly what my Sister would have wanted...the service was so wonderful, I have asked Emma to do my funeral for me when its my turn to go!..."
“She made us feel as if she knew us all personally, and delivered the perfect balance of serious and sensitive, accented with moments of humour and wit, ...just lovely!
“Emma officiated at the funeral of a good friend of mine, I automatically assumed she knew him well by the way she talked about his character and all the things he was so well known for...I was genuniely surprised when she said he had never met him - she captured him to a tee"...
"Emma, what can I say! I am so appreciative of your sensitivity and your empathy. So many people commented afterwards to us on how fantastic you were in managing the service and pulling the threads together, so we had something which was full of (x) spirit "
“I heard Emma speak at her own Mothers wedding, I can honestly say I have never heard a more beautiful 'love story', there wasn't a dry eye in the house - Emma exudes love by the bucket load!"
"A difficult day was made so easy with the kindness and warmth Emma gave myself, my sister and most importantly my grandmother as we said goodbye to my grandfather. Everyone who attended specifically said how beautifully Emma put his life into words, allowing us all to remember him with a smile." Thank you from us all
"Emma is the warmest hearted and passionate speaker and drew us in instantly. Stories of love, togetherness, challenges, and love conquering all, warmed our hearts and blew our minds"
