"Bernadette French was one of the highlights of our wedding, held at the Luton Hoo Mansion House. She was quick to take charge in the hectic minutes leading up to the wedding and was able to corral all of our vendors to the right positions at the right time and with a certain grace that only experience can provide. Bernadette’s speech was unique to us as a couple and left the audience feeling that she was more of a long time friend of our than anything else. She chose two poetry readings during the wedding that captured both the humor of the day as well as the profoundness of finding and capturing love in a marriage. It was an absolute pleasure to have her as part of our day and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an wedding officiant....Continue
Thank you again for everything and I hope this helps!"

"Thankyou so much for the beautifully conducted ceremony. Both Tariq and I were so pleased we selected you to conduct the wedding ceremony for us. You were absolutely perfect and and the ceremony was so beautiful. We received so many complements from the guests about how much they liked the ceremony and also how there were many tears in the audience as well.
So well done and thanks again for doing such a great job for the most precious day of our lives. We would definitely recommend you to all our friends and family and hopefully have you come back when we renew our vows in five years time!"

“ Just wanted to say a very big thank you for the wonderful way you conducted Victoria and Eugene’s renewal of vows ceremony. You did such an amazing professional job, making it a very moving, emotional, intimate evening for us all. Especially taking into account, the very short time you had together with Victoria and Eugene beforehand, to finalise everything, and make sure their wishes and ideas were met. You did man excellent job including the young ’treasure bearer’, Isaac!
It was a perfect an evening as we all could have wished for- ‘just right’! Again, many thanks, it was lovely meeting you."

A big thank you from the Wheeler family for making the funeral for my dad go so smoothly and such a lovely event.
Dad would have been proud. Thank you.
Just a quick thank you on behalf of the boys and myself for leading us on Wednesday.
It all went very well and I am told by those who watched the streaming that it was a wonderful way to say good bye to Sheila, if they could not be there. In particular a number of people thought that you had 'captured' Sheila very well.
Here's a quote from one of my oldest friends:
"The celebrant was a lovely lady, very fitting for Sheila, and she captured Sheila’s character so well. It was kind of her to specifically welcome those of us who would have attended in person."
Once again many thanks
Hello Bernadette, can I just express my enormous thanks for your hosting of my mum's funeral today. The whole family would like to give you their thanks for the readings and the perfect tone with which the service was delivered. We all agreed that it was the nicest funeral that any of us had attended....Continue
Many, many thanks once again,
Best wishes, Mat
“Tom and I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful job you did with our service. It was lovely and everyone commented on how nice it was. You were very calm and that made us both feel very calm! Thank you for all your advice in the lead up to it as well."

“I will be recommending you to anyone who needs a special service whether a happy one or sad, I know you’ll do a great job
(you don’t make it seem like a job). I hope to see you again sometime, as its great to have lovely people in one’s life."
I sincerely hope that this reaches you, as it is important to me.
On Friday 22nd March, my whole family were listening to the beautiful Service for Alexander Gordon, my brother Held at the Amersham Crematorium at 9.15am. Our family is scattered far and wide, in Portland Oregon, Israel and London – and I was particularly pleased that they were all able to tune it.
I was so impressed with the whole experience, and it was totally beautiful and uplifting. Your voice and manner were a delight and I can never thank you enough for giving dear Gordon (as I usually called him) such a beautiful and peaceful send off.. While even now, a few days later, I occasionally have a little weep, on Friday morning I felt calm, and happy, thanks to your most beautiful presentation. I will never forget this very special occasion, and it will live with me forever.
So please accept my most sincere thanks for bringing so many lasting memories of Alexander Gordon to us all on 22nd March, shared with so many friends, in their senior years, who were able to be ‘with us’ on this extraordinarily important and happy day.
God Bless you of bringing us all together for this beautiful occasion.
I send my Sincere and Warmest Thanks to you and your team.

Bernie, just wanted to say a massive “THANK YOU” for yesterday!...Continue
Once again you were brilliant! Many comments about how you made the service personal.
We really appreciated you coming back to the hotel to read out the messages for us and we feel we really were able to give Phil the send off which he deserved.
Also the way in which you supported all of us along the way, we couldn’t have done it without you!
My mum has already asked would you travel to Portsmouth for when it’s her time!!! Have told her she isn’t going anywhere - we’ve had enough death for now!!
Thanks really don’t seem enough but we REALLY did appreciate everything!
