Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


The ceremony you performed was one of the most memorable moments I have had in this lifetime and we will never forget it.

Our guests are still telling us that the highlight of the wedding for them was the ceremony outside on the lawn of Polhawn Fort that you conducted, I have to say I certainly agree! You were so professional and personable, from the meetings we had with you running up to the wedding and down to the very last moment.

Adam and Glen's wedding was shortlisted for "Wedding of the Year,"

in the wedding magazine  

"The ceremony for my brother's wedding was amazing!"


It was an honour to witness such a touching and most special moment in my brother's life. In the run up to the ceremony Sue was organised & supportive, ensuring everyone involved knew what to do, when to do it and offered suggestions where necessary, on how to improve our readings.


Sue's script accurately reflected my brother's character and that of his partner, covering their personal, professional and spiritual lives to date. The personalisation was beautiful and it was articulated by Sue in a clear and engaging manner. The ceremony touched many on an emotional level and at times made us laugh out loud. Overall an incredible moment to be involved in, which ran incredibly smoothly. Absolutely on point! Thank you Sue. (Dean).

As soon as we began to communicate with Sue we knew she was the right person for us. Sue crafted a ceremony that would make our experience unique but also encompass all the traditional aspects of a handfasting. Sue could not have been more kind and accommodating toward us as well as professional. As we travelled to the UK we had constant updates from her about the tides and she even arranged for her daughter to take photos, as the short notice made it difficult to arrange a photographer.

Sue put together the most wonderful uplifting, fun, moving, powerful and inspirational ceremony I have ever experienced regarding the union of two people. We felt Sue put her heart and soul into making our day as memorable as it could have been and always will be. The unbelievably meaningful ceremony surpassed anything we could have imagined. It will live within both of us every day through hard times and good. We whole heartily recommend Sue to anyone who wants to celebrate their love and union. We consider Sue to be a dear friend and we hope she has the opportunity to share her magic, warmth and love with as many other couples as possible.

Thank you Sue for conducting our ceremony in the magical setting of Calamansac on the river Helford. It was a wonderful day, it was perfect, everything that we had hoped for, it could not have been any better. It was not only a marriage ceremony but a joining of two families.

Your ceremony was beautiful and very moving, I think everyone was in tears at some time in the ceremony, the way you put the script together worked perfectly. We have so many memories now of a fantastic day surrounded by family which we will cherish for ever.

From a Thank You card – Graham and I would like to thank you for all your help and professionalism in arranging our ceremony. Everything from the beginning when I first spoke to you, to the ceremony on the day went smoothly and was exactly what we wanted – a joining of two families. Thank you also for helping with the pasties, plus the lovely wedding folder with all the readings and poems which we will cherish forever. We had a fantastic day and are now looking forward to setting up a home together. All our love Jane and Graham. (Essex)

As soon as I opened the door and saw Sue wearing her colourful clothes and a warm smile I knew we had chosen the right person, she just had a way about her that made you feel instantly relaxed. We started telling our 'story' and Sue hurriedly jotted down notes and asked plenty of questions without being personal or intrusive. Sue kept in regular contact via text and email, writing up and editing drafts for our personalised ceremony, always on hand to offer her help and advice when needed.

The ceremony Sue wrote for us was absolutely fantastic, funny, heartfelt and interesting, she did not rush through anything and made us feel very special. We didn't even have to buy a broom to jump over as Sue provided this, all beautifully decorated! The gathering was totally involved too as Sue interacted with them throughout the ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful and emotional the handfasting was and that it was conducted with excellence and professionalism.

My husband and I would not hesitate in recommending Sue to anyone seeking an alternative bespoke wedding ceremony, as she is fabulous at what she does. We feel that we didn't just pay for a service but gained a friend.
