Hi Helen, Thank you so much to you and your colleague for conducting our wedding ceremony on 11 May at Stoke Newington – everyone commented on how relaxed you made it feel and how sincere your words were which really mattered to us. We had a fantastic day, the weather just about held for us and we’ve just come back from an amazing week in Italy, so all in all a perfect start to married life! We really were impressed with everyone and everything at Stoke Newington/Hackney Council, you all made the important bits of the day run so smoothly so thank you for that. Laura and Dave
Dear Helen, We just want to say thank you for our beautiful wedding ceremony on Saturday. It was such a special and precious moment in our lives. Thank you for the skill, professionalism, warmth and humour with which you held the ceremony. And for identifying the lack of ring in the ring box, before the crucial moment!! We had lots of lovely feedback from family and friends about the ceremony and about how great both you and Fran were, so I would like to pass that on to you. A bit of excitement too about Fran having been in the Big Gay wedding on TV! Please will you let Fran know as well? With our gratitude and appreciation, Sarah and Floyd
Dear Helen, Thank you for making our wedding ceremony such a happy and joyous occasion on Saturday – I don’t think we could have picked a nicer officiant if we’d tried. Nancy and Trevor
Dear Helen, Thank you for conducting a really lovely ceremony at our wedding on Friday 4 July. It was very warm and moving, and everyone said how touching they found it. We also really appreciated all the help you gave us in the run up to the ceremony. We went on to have a very happy day, so thank you! Gen and Al
Dear Helen, Nick and I want to thank you so much for the joyful, yet meaningful way you conducted our ceremony on the 2nd January at Stoke Newington Town Hall. The ceremony was certainly the highlight of the day. It felt serious and at the same time, personal, and that meant a lot to both of us.
Thank you. We had our upgrade meeting and signing yesterday. Helen was most gracious and it felt more like an afternoon chat than an official signing. It means a lot to William and me to take this final step to marriage. Thank you so much for your dedication and efforts.
Hi Helen, Amy and I just wanted to thank you (and the lovely Registrar whose name we can’t remember due to wedding-induced stress….) for helping to make our wedding yesterday so special. We really appreciated your professional yet relaxed approach, and the style of the ceremony was exactly as we had hoped it would be. We had a wonderful day, and it kicked off with what everyone has described as a “beautiful” ceremony. So thank you. Wedding finished, now to commence on our marriage 😉 Amy and Helen.
Hi Helen Karolina and I would like to extend our warm thanks for such a fantastic ceremony. I spoke to my mother yesterday and she commented on what a splendid job you did. Tim
Dear Helen, We both wanted to thank you again for conducting our marriage ceremony on Friday. Everyone said how much they enjoyed it and you made it easy and enjoyable for us. It was a wonderful moment thanks to you and to your colleagues. Could you please pass on our thanks to the two of them too? France
Dear Helen, Thank you so much for the lovely civil ceremony on Saturday at Clissold House. It was perfect. Sara

And some feedback from funeral ceremonies at which I’ve officiated:

The service was very well performed and I have to say that the lady that conducted the written statement about my late sister was perfect. This lady handled my arrangements with care and understanding. She made what was a sad time very easy and I have nothing but gratitude to send her. I would recommend this lady to anybody at any time…in fact I have made my own funeral arrangements and have asked for this lady to conduct mine in the event of my death.
Our mother's funeral was handled in an excellent manner and was everything she would have wished herself.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this type of service. I needn't have worried though, as it was absolutely brilliant. It was very uplifting and comforting. I know my husband would have approved.
