“If you are looking at this website and wondering, do I need a celebrant, and what will they do? Let me tell you about Steve and his kindness and his perseverance to get me and my family through a difficult time. He didn’t just speak on our behalf, he held us together and gave us strength to move past our pain to healing. Yes, it’s his job but I would argue his calling. A marvellously kind hearted and straightforward person I will never forget. Thank-you Steve.”

Hannah, 2017

Everyone who attended spoke about how lovely it was, and when we spoke to Nan she was so pleased how it went, and couldn’t get over how nice it was. We had so many people say how lovely it was, and how lovely the environment is at Harbour View. Thank you once again for helping us give Mum such a wonderful send off. Mum would have loved it.”

The Order of Dad’s funeral service all typed and beautiful, to keep as a memento of the day, or to put it another way – that geezer Steve’s only gorn an’ typed up me poem all posh-like! So a huge thank you! You were absolutely super, holding us all together. And don’t think you’ve seen the last of us – my mom wants you to “do hers” (quote), and the rest of us are in an orderly line!”

We wish you the very best in your career as a celebrant and are sure you will make a success of it.”

Averil, 2016

“Thank you so much for the eulogy you gave for D at his service. It is quite a skill to speak about someone you have never met just based around our reminiscences, and one which you expressed so eloquently. Your words were very moving, but at the same time uplifting, and you even raised a few smiles that D would have appreciated. I particularly enjoyed the ‘Andre Previn’ touch at the end; even I enjoyed that sketch. I wish you good luck in the future and without hesitation, would recommend you to speak for anyone who needs your skills and is in the same situation as my family and I were. Many thanks and best wishes.”

Sylvia, 2016

“We had lots of lovely comments about how good the service was, and particularly how warm and sincere your presentation was. You gave a top class eulogy which represented and enhanced our thoughts and feelings perfectly. We couldn’t be more happy with the service and will not hesitate to use your services again and recommend you to friends and family in the future. Once again, many thanks for doing a wonderful and sincere job.”

Tony, 2016

“I was delighted when I found the copy of T’s service when I got home today. I will treasure it and also copy it for cousin G. The service was all that I had hoped for and touched so many people. As they left, they were smiling, often through their tears, but they felt uplifted instead of depressed; that’s what we were aiming for wasn’t it? You made it a very special day for T, and especially for me, L, and all his friends.”

Elaine, 2016
