Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The ceremony was one of the most memorable moments I have had and we will never forget it. Our guests are still telling us the highlight of the wedding was the ceremony outside on the lawn that you conducted. You were so professional from the first meeting to the wedding, down to the very last moment.

Sue crafted a ceremony that made our experience unique and  encompassed all the traditional aspects of a handfasting.

Sue created the most wonderful uplifting, fun, moving, powerful and inspirational ceremony I have ever experienced regarding the union of two people. Sue put her heart and soul into making our day as memorable as it could have been.

The unbelievably meaningful ceremony surpassed anything we could have imagined. We whole heartily recommend Sue to anyone who wants to celebrate their love and union and hope she has the opportunity to share her magic, warmth and love with as many other couples as possible.

Thank you Sue for writing and conducting our ceremony. It was beautiful and very moving. I think everyone was in tears at somepoint and it worked perfectly. We have so many memories of a fantastic day which we will cherish for ever.

We would like to thank you for all your help and professionalism from the beginning when I first spoke to you, to the ceremony on the day, it was exactly what we wanted. Thank you also the lovely wedding folder with all the readings and poems which we will cherish forever.

Sue had a way about her that made us feel instantly relaxed. The ceremony she wrote for us was absolutely fantastic, funny, interesting and heartfelt, she made us feel very special and even brought a beautifully decorated broom for us to jump over!

Many of our guests commented on how beautiful and emotional the handfasting was and that it was conducted with excellence and professionalism. We would not hesitate in recommending Sue to anyone seeking an alternative bespoke wedding ceremony. She is fabulous at what she does. We feel that we didn't just pay for a service but gained a friend.

It was lovely to have the freedom to have our ceremony just the way we wanted it and Sue travelled to a far-flung place at an unusual time to deliver it for us. We had a very personal event, delivered in the framework of ancient, magical traditions which was so perfect for us.

We highly recommend Sue for any wedding, she is professional and first class.

Thank you so much for all your hard work and how wonderful you were on the day. We have had so many compliments on the ceremony and how personal it was & I really appreciate how wonderfully you delivered our story.


Sue was brilliant to work with from day one. She was fantastically organised and always answered any questions we had without delay. She worked tirelessly to help us create a personal ceremony that was exactly as we wanted and patiently made any adjustments we needed. She delivered the ceremony flawlessly on the day and we had many lovely comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed it. We would highly recommend Sue as your celebrant, she is modern, creative and we would have been lost without her!

We chose a celebrant to have our ceremony just how we always wanted.  When we found Sue, we knew she would be perfect. She is kind, approachable, friendly and funny.  With Sue's help we had the wording for our ceremony that fitted our ideas. We cannot recommend Sue enough. She made our day so special and personal to both of us.  Thank you again for everything Sue. We really did have the perfect day.

When I contacted Sue about a handfasting ceremony as part of our wedding day, I instantly knew she was in tune with us. She offered support and reassurance prior to the ceremony and has a gift that relaxed everyone on the day with her ever smiling face, warm approach and appropriate level of sense of humour.


She made our day so special with her professional and heartfelt ceremony crafted to our personal beliefs, desires and hopes. Our guests all enjoyed ‘the bit outside’ best and Tony and I agree. We will always remember it as our very special life event.


Michelle and Tony from Hayle.

We decided on doing things slightly differently for our wedding & fell in love with the idea of a hand fasting as it seemed so romantic! We found Sue online & from the moment we made contact she went out of her way to make sure we had something perfect for our big day. We kept changing things, but nothing was too much & she always got back to us within a few days. She seemed like a lovely warm person & put my mind at ease as soon as I met her. The service was just perfect & everyone commented on how lovely it was. I would highly recommend Sue she was 5 star

Thank you so much for being a part of our ceremony, it was absolutely amazing. We had so many compliments afterwards, all the guests loved it. A butterfly even landed on my dress and I'm sure you had a hand in that too!

Thank you so, so very much for helping us to finally, "Tie the knot."

It was such an incredible moment for us both and it couldn't have been more perfect. You are amazing.

We’ll never forget the beautiful ceremony Sue created for our special day. As we stood on a jetty next to a glistening lake, Sue delivered a speech that had everyone in tears as we all reminisced on the love and memories that had brought us all together. A special part of the ceremony was a traditional handfasting that none of our guests expected. They were in awe of how magical this part was and some confirmed it was the most beautiful ceremony they had witnessed, even after attending decades of weddings.

Sue, thank you for making us feel so relaxed and reassured throughout the entire process.

We had the adventure of a lifetime traveling to beautiful Cornwall for our handfasting ceremony.


Sue is an amazing person, so full of love, compassion, and grace and the experience was beyond what we had hoped for. 


The personalized attention she gives to every detail and to our unique personalities resulted in a flawless experience. The ceremony was eloquent, meaningful and warm; an unforgettable experience, all thanks to Sue!
