"Deb, I meant to commend you for your flawless and personal service in officiating the funeral for my darling husband.
Thanks to your very caring and involved assistance, you and Hedley Price gave us the ceremony we needed to help us say goodbye to an incredible husband and father. As you spoke, you brought him back to us and we felt that you had become personally involved with his story and fully grasped what he had meant to us.
Thank you for the transcript of everything that was said and the photo of port and stilton - a touch which has made us all smile. Above all, thank you for your kindness, something I shall always remember"
With much love, Virginia 

From a professional colleague. I took over when the booked celebrant was ill on the morning
"I cannot express how impressed I was with the service you conducted at such short notice, you went above and beyond to ensure that the family were looked after and delivered a seamless service that you would not have known hadn’t been written by you!
It was a pleasure to work alongside you during a service facing the circumstances we had on that day, well done to you"

"I really can’t thank you enough for everything you put together for my husbands funeral. So many people contacted me afterwards to say how much it made them think back and remember him. You really listened and took on board all the funny eccentricities that made him who he was. Thank you. ".

"Just a little note of thanks to you Jackie. You have been a brilliant support over the time of planning my Dad’s funeral. I have had many compliments on the service and how fitting it was for Dad.The mini Eccles cakes were inspired and I love that we did something a little different.It is not an easy time so to have such support was invaluable."

“Deb, many thanks for your beautiful service yesterday for my husband's funeral. You made a very difficult day a much better one with your words and empathy. I thank you with sincere gratitude.” Heather

“Deb, I thought I would drop you a quick note to say ‘thank you’ for the fantastic job you did for my father’s funeral. You did a wonderful job for my family yesterday and everyone said how amazing, emotional and sincere the whole funeral was. You really conveyed my father’s kind nature and how loved he truly was. A really heart-felt dedication to my father’s memory. Me and my family are so thankful we got you involved and are very grateful to you” Graham

“Thank you for my Mum's funeral ceremony. It was perfect and just how I had envisaged. Small, simple, kind and gentle, exactly as fitted my dear Mum. Your words really painted a perfect picture of her life” Sandra 

"Thank you again for yesterday – you made a sad day joyful. Thank you for giving such a warm tribute to mum which brought back many happy memories. Anyone would be privileged to have you as their celebrant. "

"What a lovely ceremony! Great words that weren't just words, said with such feeling. You clearly love your job."

"Thank you for your kindness – it really meant so much."

"Just a note to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding ceremony so special. From an extra meeting to email guidance, and then making us feel as relaxed as possible on the day itself – you did such a wonderful job. Thank you for tolerating our inability to be sensible, even during the ceremony. We will always look back and feel that it was all very much ‘just like us’ and will smile and laugh at all the happy memories."

"A true friend and true professional. Keen to 'go our own way' on the wedding front, Jackie was the first person we shared news of our engagement with. From that first phone call, her unfaltering guidance and commitment to planning a bespoke ceremony was what enabled us to enjoy a ceremony that was meaningful to us. For her beautiful and heartfelt delivery of our wedding ceremony, we will be forever grateful."

"I want to offer you my absolute thanks and gratitude for your support and guidance following the funeral yesterday.

I believe we could not have given him a better send off and I am certain that had he been sat in a pew watching he would have enjoyed the service. Your words captured the essence of him and pulled the whole service together.

I know that some of the things that you require to do your job were somewhat late in being sorted but you managed, despite that, to pull everything together wonderfully."

"We just wanted to write and say a big thank you for conducting our wedding ceremony beautifully. Our ceremony from start to finish was just perfect. We had the most fantastic day full of memories we will cherish forever."

"Thank you Jackie for being such a part of our day and helping make it the personal, relaxed and meaningful ceremony that we had hoped for. Your words on the day meant a lot to both of us and will stay with us forever."

"I have married three daughters and been to many ceremonies over the years but this is the best one I have ever seen. Thank you."

"Doesn’t matter whether you’re tree fellers or teachers it’s lovely to see true professionals in action."

"Deb was a fantastic officiant. I used to work as a wedding co-ordinator so have seen quite a few weddings over the years but ours was truly magical and was officiated incredibly well."

"Our sincere thanks. My daughter was quite emotional and could easily have dissolved into a blubbering mess so your blend of solemnity and humour was just perfect."

"This is to say thank you Deb for making mum's funeral ceremony such a memorable and moving occasion. We were so pleased with the way you planned and delivered the service and felt that mum was given the send-off she deserved"
