'Our first thought when we arranged to get married was to ask Ana. She delivered the service words beautifully and they really captured us and our feelings. The thing is with Ana is she is caring, she listens and it is important to her that things are great, even if it means asking (nicely) for others to do their jobs right ahead of time (moving tables, getting the room just so etc...) She is also funny, patient and calming.' KN
'Last year when my partner passed away, I asked Ana to perform the funeral service. With her patience, diligent but sensitive gathering of information & her sympathetic approach to the whole process, she made a difficult time much easier than expected. The service went wonderfully, getting compliments from friends & family for weeks afterwards. Funerals are supposed to be a celebration of life & this one most certainly was, thanks Ana.' ID
Happy Clients are important to me! It is always wonderfully heartening to read the feedback I receive from the lovely people I work with. I must be doing something right! I don't believe in pushing for them, or providing a 'review format' form -- these are from the heart
*** I have pasted some of the graded reviews left by my happy clients on my FACEBOOK PAGE and online, in THE CELEBRANT DIRECTORY ***
'I am writing to thank you for an excellent presentation yesterday it really carried the service. At the reception so many people commented on how informative the eulogy was and how well it was read. Many said it was among the best services they had ever been to, so we got it right somewhere.' PC
'A great service. Thank you again for yesterday, my mum will be looking down on us knowing she got her wishes. Take care.' TS
What can I say? You did such a wonderful job. Everyone said your delivery was so full of compassion and no 'preacher' tone at all.
Just perfect. We thought the whole ceremony was just so appropriate. .
We feel forever indebted to you.
With love, C, A and T'
'Ana is truly amazing and I would recommend her - she did an amazing job for my precious Mum.' JC
'Thank you Ana for your amazing contribution to Joe and Lucy’s wedding. You really did a fantastic job of understanding the love, warmth and fun of the happy couple and of the whole occasion. Your words and delivery were spot on. I was crying ( happy tears) from the moment you began! I would thoroughly recommend your amazing skills to others. Thank you so much.' BD
Thanks so much for your help [for the baby-naming and family blending ceremony]. It was a wonderful day and everyone enjoyed it a lot. We also were very touched by the bracelet and ribbons with your card.'.
'Myself and the family would like to say a big thank you for the care and compassion you have shown us over the last month. The manner in which you conducted mum's funeral was perfect for our needs at this particular time.' HS
'Thanks again for the lovely service; many people commented on how fitting it was for Mum.' LF
Just a quick message from our “minimoon” in Cheltenham! [😃]
Just like to say thank you so much for everything you did not only on the day but the lead up to the big day as well!
I’m pretty sure without your calming presence and gentle nudges we would have been even more lost and generally confused before the ceremony!
You were brilliant, and we both really appreciate everything you did!
Thanks again' Mr & Mrs T (D)
'I really appreciated the lovely service and time you took. Lots of people told me they loved the service. Thank you so much for the beautiful bound copies you gave us and for taking the time to put together additional copies for people who were asking.' BB
'Happy New Year Ana! Thank you again for making our wedding day very special!!! We were delighted with your lovely script and loved the flow and words! Thank you so much for all your fantastic help.' SM-C
'Many thanks for last Friday. It was a very emotional time for all of us but we think the service went well and we gave her a good send off. … the service hit the right note in the way it celebrated a wonderfully vivacious lady.
It was a sad occasion, but also a celebratory one for a life well lived though cut short way too soon. We’ll all remember the good times we had with her and will undoubtedly think that future occasions would be greatly improved if we could add her back in.
We’d also like to thank you for printing the picture of A for the coffin, which we now have hanging above her fireplace above the lovely remembrance candle you so kindly made for her. These little touches were very much appreciated.' M,D,C, J
'We both thank you so much for a beautiful and sensitive [vow renewal] ceremony. From our first meeting right away you put us at ease and had our trust. You definitely got ‘us’ and everyone asked if you were a personal friend. Thanks a lot Ana - you made this day very very special, with tears and laughter in all the right places. Cheers for that from both of us. A great day... feel like we’re newly-weds again now lol. ' P&J
'Thank you so much Ana for a wonderful service.' LW
