We wish we could give Nicola 12 out of 10 from beginning to end. She truly loves her job and it shines through in everything she does. We had a heartfelt connection with her and have become eternal friends.


If you’re looking to hire a celebrant who is professional and a complete gem, look no further. 


We are so grateful to Nicola for capturing the

essence of our love story with such ease.

"Cannot thank Nicola enough for officiating

our wedding ceremony.

The service was so special and we had so many compliments from our guests. We chose to include a handfasting and a \sand ritual which were extra special touches that made our ceremony even more perfect.


Our children, nieces, nephews and godson all took part

in the sand ritual which they LOVED.


Thank you, Nicola, for conducting such a beautiful service, you were so lovely, and communication before our ceremony put us at ease knowing we had picked the perfect celebrant"

"We chose Nicola as our celebrant for our daughter's naming ceremony as she was warm and made us feel comfortable straight away.


We felt she knew exactly what we were looking for on the day.

Nicola involved us all the way leading up to the day with the development of the script and gave us inspiration when we needed it. We felt that the script was beautiful and as it was created together was so personal and unique to us.


She was lovely and professional and delivered a fantastic ceremony that all my friends and family enjoyed" 

Thank you, Nicola!

"Nicola, we cannot thank you enough for coming to our rescue and conducting our ceremony at such short notice. Your wonderful warm personality put us at ease and just helped make the day so special.


V's parents were sceptical at first when we spoke about a celebrant, and then after the ceremony, they had nothing but praise for you how personal it all felt.


Holding hands and exchanging vows surrounded by our very closest loved ones in my parent's house at the most important moment in our life was just incredible!


The rain may have put play to our garden party, but you brought sunshine to our day, so thank you so much"

"Nicola conducted our recent wedding ceremony. She was professional and friendly from start to finish.


We first contacted Nicola quite late in our wedding planning, but this didn’t phase her and she helped us feel comfortable. We met Nicola in person before the ceremony which showed us just how truly passionate and skilled she is in her role.


The ceremony was conducted confidently but also with an individual touch, which was just perfect.


Thank you Nicola, you made our day official and personal all at the same time"

"On the day I was most impressed by your caring yet professional manner in the way you spoke on our behalf and the way the service was conducted in general, it made a very hard day a lot easier.


I have received messages from friends that watched the streaming and all have said they thought the service was a fitting tribute, which is so lovely to hear"

She brought our story to life and the wedding was so beautiful.

The little touches and the way she put us at ease helped us both so much.

We cannot thank her enough for everything she did to make it all so special"

"Nicola conducted the service
for my mother’s funeral.

At this incredibly difficult time, Nicola made us feel at ease from the very start and was extremely supportive throughout.

During the service she read our poems, memories and letters with great warmth, compassion and kindness.

We had many compliments from our guests after the service about how wonderful it was.

Nicola, thank you for everything, you did us and my mum proud. It was the perfect send-off and celebration of her life"

We chose Nicola as our celebrant for our wedding ceremony in August 2022, and we can’t recommend her highly enough. For anyone looking for a personable and enjoyable ceremony that they will cherish for a lifetime you needn’t look any further.


Nicola was brilliant. She met with us beforehand to really understand us as a couple and to ensure the ceremony encapsulated everything we asked of and more. She put us at ease and helped us throughout the planning process, which was so helpful given we had lots to organise for our big day!


All our guests said how lovely our ceremony was and that it was the best they’ve ever experienced. It was such a personal and fun service which is exactly what we had imagined. It was the perfect way to celebrate our marriage and really set the foundations for the most special day with our close family and friends.


We had initially planned to use a registrar for our ceremony; however, we’re so pleased we decided to choose a celebrant instead and were lucky enough to find Nicola who gave us a service we’ll never forgot!


Thanks again to Nicola for everything.

Nicola was Nicola wasn’t a supplier to us, she ended up becoming a friend. Having our original celebrant cancel, Nicola was an angel in making sure she was available to do our service and made it completely about what we wanted in every aspect! I’m so happy that she came into our wedding plans and everyone commented to us how the service was so unique and personal to us as a family. From meeting in person, zoom calls and answering constant minute emails, she was impeccable from our first point of contact!
! When we found Nicola we were living abroad in Monaco at the time of planning our wedding. We took to Nicola straight away with her kind, bubbly personality.


She was great at supporting us and always answered our questions promptly.

She also knew that my fiance at the time was in a very hectic job and was very understanding to work at our timings rather working to her timings which would have made her life a lot easier and we very much appreciated that she gave as much time.

We were impressed with the time Nicola took to plan the service and to ensure that the eulogy perfectly represented her life.


Nothing was rushed.


On the day Nicola was supportive and professional,  Highly recommend."

Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony people

are still talking about how beautiful it was.

And we are so grateful to you for all the effort you put in.

Thank you so much Nicola for making our day so special. It has been so lovely meeting you and having you do our ceremony it was perfect.


You have a way of making it so lovely and relaxed. And making it so special to use. Nicola included our children into the ceremony so beautifully and really knew what we wanted but she didnt need loads of information from us,


she just made the whole thing very easy.

Thank you so much
