Higher Eggbeer, Devon
The ceremony that she crafted for us was everything that we wanted it to be and so much more.
When we read the first draft of our script, there was laughter and (happy) tears in equal measure, and that’s how we hoped it would be received by our guests. It absolutely was.
So many of our guests commented on how fabulous Fan was, and how much they loved the ceremony. Many said that it was the best wedding service they’d ever been to, and I genuinely believe that they were being absolutely sincere in saying so. One of our guests assumed that we were friends, given our rapport during the ceremony – a testament to Fan’s amazing ability to connect with us and capture our story so beautifully.
Thank you Fan! x”

Having been legally married in November 2020 during COVID restrictions with only a few family members in attendance, I can honestly say that having a wedding celebrant conduct our bigger wedding in August 2021 was 10 times better. We really enjoyed our ceremony as did our friends and family.
Thank you so much Fan!”

We sat down with her in our wedding venue 3 months out so she could get all the notes she needed for our script – it was a wonderful afternoon and a great experience you’ll certainly never get with a registrar. By the end of it, Fan knew us both better than most of our friends and family and when the script arrived in our inboxes we shed a tear – it was perfect, I couldn’t have written it better myself, she captured us and everything we wanted in every way.
On the day, Fan was a wonderful addition and I felt like I was walking down the aisle to a good friend. Rob and I were absolutely delighted and so was our family. My Mum and Dad still says today what a wonderful ceremony it was. Rob and I couldn’t thank you enough Fan, we’re sad our little journey with you is over but I am so excited for the couples than are yet to meet you and experience such a beautiful wedding ceremony.
Thank you so much, Emily and Rob x”
“The whole process we experienced with Fan to act as the celebrant for our wedding was wonderful and really added to the specialness of the day. Fan used a questionnaire as an ice breaker to learn more about us and our relationship and even we could only speak over zoom, we had lovely conversations with her from which she drew to write the script for our ceremony. It was really striking just how well Fan got a sense of us, and even on the first draft we felt the script was so personal and well tailored to us.
Working closely with us and our wedding planner, Fan helped us put together an exquisite ceremony on a short timeline that also included a few original elements drawing on my wife’s heritage. On the day itself Fan more than lived up to her reputation and was warm, charming and set such a great tone for the day. All our guests said how much they’d enjoyed how original the ceremony was, how they loved getting the chance to learn more about us in it and how beautiful the original elements to it had been.
For our part it was everything we had hoped it would be and felt completely perfect for us in a way we could never have had with a traditional ceremony. We’re so pleased we went with Fan and highly recommend her for making your wedding feel truly special.”

When we met Fan for the first time we both knew she was the one for us. We both left the first meeting, took one look at each other and knew straight away. We then had some really fun meetings with Fan in the run up to the wedding. Discussing what we liked, didn’t like, how we met, what we love about each other, what makes us laugh, what makes us cry happy tears, everything. She was so patient and reassuring, helping us through the whole process not just the ceremony itself. Helping with ideas for any rituals, examples of vows, things we might want to keep secret for the big day, where to put people, how to stage things. We really felt like Fan took everything in to account and weaved it all in to such a special ceremony.
On the wedding day itself, Fan was brilliant and made everyone feel at ease (especially Ollie, who was a bag of nerves waiting for his bride to be!). We had a few last minute changes but nothing was ever too much. All of our guests commented on how fun and personal the wedding ceremony was. Some even said it was genuinely the best wedding ceremony they’d ever been to!
She was such a huge part of making our wedding everything we wanted it to be we cannot thank her enough.”

“It exceeded all our expectations of what a wedding service could be, especially for second-timers, with adult children to consider and other issues in the mix.
You were absolutely brilliant in every way, right from day one and until the very last moment at the kirk, you kept us straight, you got all the right info out of us and most importantly, you put together all our random thoughts and feelings into a beautiful, coherent and truly meaningful service for us, VERY CLEVER!
I know that everyone in the congregation felt the same, and I think you must have noticed all the over-emotional ‘lairds’ dabbing their eyes discreetly, with their less inhibited wifes in full flow and fast running out of tissues (so I’m told!). A brilliant result in my book. We have had so many compliments on the service itself that I shall gather up some of the quotes for you from the letters we’ve received, as I think you should benefit from their lovely comments too.
Thank you thank you Fan really so truly. I can’t over-emphasise how delighted we both were with the results and it all down to you. I think you really have hit in a skill and passion in this work which shines through and which you so obviously love to do.”

Fan … dear Fan … words will never convey the gratitude we have for giving us the most personal, magical and precious ceremony we could have ever imagined and dreamed of. Something we will never forget. Thank you.”
“Where to begin? Fan made our day exactly how we wanted it; laid back, funny and most importantly personal. Everyone said how amazing you were and how it was so different but one of the best ceremonies, and they could hear you at the back! You helped make our day so perfect!
Will recommend you til the cows come home.”

Fan was incredible, really down to earth and she made us feel at ease right from the first time we met her, and it was as if we had known her for ages.
The ceremony was beautiful, there were tears and laughter, and our guests loved how she got everyone involved.

We cannot thank her enough for making our ceremony so perfect, and something we will remember forever. Xx”
Many of our guests have mentioned to us how refreshing it was to come to a service where they weren’t already mouthing the words before they were said! They absolutely loved how it was so ‘us’, and the overwhelming comments were of how relaxed the whole thing was. I know my stress levels were kept low because you had our backs!
So thank you again, lots of love”

From our very first meeting with Fan she made us feel at ease which then progressed right through to our wedding day. The personal touches that Fan brings to the ceremony are ones that you will treasure forever.
We have had endless comments about how amazing our ceremony was and that is thanks to Fan! Amazingly professional. We cannot thank her enough!”
A BIG fat thank you coming your way from both of us. And can I also say that a couple of our male friends were so moved it brought them (almost) to tears ..Men, haha!
It was a pleasure to work with you, and have you as our celebrant for our most fabulous day.”

So many good comments, thank you!”
From a simple phone conversation, she crafted a beautiful ceremony reading that captured everything we wanted to express. We enjoyed her upbeat personality and our guests commented on what a lovely atmosphere was created, and how well the ceremony was conducted. We couldn’t have wished for a more wonderful ceremony or person to marry us.
Thank you Fan, you’re amazing.”
