"Emma's dedication to her clients inspires her and every audience she has stood before at every function she has presided over, and belies a commitment to honouring her subjects, couples, families and peers in the most unique, thoughtful and uplifting manner"
"Emma, how you held a crowd of that scale was amazing! So many people thought you knew (x), and my family and I felt he was with us as we celebrated his life. To do that so brilliantly, and with such warmth is a talent indeed! (x) would have been the first to shake you by the hand - one star to another! - Bravo!
"Dear Emma, it is not often I feel compelled to write letters but I wanted to congratulate you on the most sublime ceremony! As a retired registrar, I have conducted and bore witness to hundreds of ceremonies over the years - the ceremony you delivered was inspired! - something very special indeed!"
"Emma, I just wanted to praise for the stupendous and seamless job you did at (x) Memorial Celebration; an enormous task! But you pitched everything perfectly (and were a fantastic compare too!) your tribute was a stunning piece of writing and delivery...as a fellow Celebrant I was in absolute awe!"
"Emma, (X's) heroism in WW2 went unrecognised throughout his long and troubled life, you will never know what it meant to our family - or would have meant to (X) - that you were able to arrange for standard bearers and a bugle player, to honour him!; the most wonderful, humbling farewell. God bless you Sweetheart...
"Emma, I have had wonderful feedback following the wedding ceremony and naming ceremony you took, with a number of our guests asking "where the Celebrant got the poem and scripts from?" - when I explained you had done all the writing from scratch, peoples eyebrows were raised. We were so impressed!" Beautifully done!
..."Dearest Emma, I cannot begin to express how much your service meant to our family. You truly are a special person who has touched us all with your words. I feel my wife would have congratulated herself on her forward planning in choosing you to be her Celebrant. Thank you more times than I can mention"...
"Thank you with all my heart for such a beautiful service Emma. Looking at your reassuring face, that beamed genuine love and compassion, helped me so much to get through the hardest day of my life, knowing that (x) was in such safe hands. You are a beautiful soul, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart"
"Emma, thank you for crafting a humbling narrative about my Mum's life from from the brief notes we were able to give you, painting a vivid picture of her life before I was even born! During our long journey home (x) and I felt a massive weight had been lifted from our shoulders - and our hearts. You did Mum proud"
"Emma, what can I say! I am so appreciative of your sensitivity, empathy but also your humour. So many people commented afterwards on how fantastic you were in writing and pulling the threads of such a complex service together, so we had something which was full of (x) spirit.
It was - simply put - a magnificent job!
"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 - she was wonderfu"
“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"
“ 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, and didnt want either of our families or step-parents feeling excluded. Emma gave us great suggestions that made all our family feel included - it was perfect."
"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 Emma"
"We had never heard of a family blending ceremony. My partner and I had no burning desire in being married (having both been married before) so having that recognition that we were all one big family was important"
"...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 assumed she knew him well by the way she talked about his character and was surprised when she said he had never met him - she captured him to a tee"...
“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 my grandmother as we said goodbye to my grandfather. How beautifully Emma put his life into words, allowing us all to remember him with a smile."
"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"
“...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!"
"Emma, we appreciate your kindness and support so much throughout the wonderful service you gave (x)...there are not many people who can do what you do. You have a gift. It's special"
