I am proud to regularly receive wonderful feedback from the ceremonies that I lead.  These are some things people have said about me.

“Natalie worked with me and my family at the hardest time of our lives to create two highly sensitive and personal services to celebrate my mothers life. Her support, advice, intuition, encouragement, inspiration and warmth has helped us immeasurably over the last few weeks and we take great comfort in knowing that with Natalie’s guidance we gave Mum a service that was absolutely 100% her.

Natalie made the entire process of planning the right words so much easier in the face of our grief. We knew some of what we wanted to say, and somehow Natalie honed all our words, music choices and photographs into a script that was deeply appropriate, personal and authentic and on the day delivered the words with a beautiful, soft and sincere tone. Behind the scenes she spoke to our funeral director and the venue to make sure things were all set as we wished taking away any shred of anxiety.

I wish more people knew that it’s possible to do something a little different to celebrate their loved ones. Finding Natalie was the very best thing that happened to us at a dreadful time. Me and my family can not recommend her services as a writer and funeral celebrant highly enough.”  October 2018

“Your patience and professionalism were a great comfort, and you spoke with such compassion and respect for my dad during what was a befitting and lovely ceremony. I believe it was just as he would have wanted it to be”

“Thank you so much for such a wonderful and meaningful service. We got so many comments on how beautifully conceived the day was. Your gentle leadership really helped us through it – giving us time for both celebration and true contemplation. Everything was perfect. It is a bit of a leap in the dark choosing a celebrant – but we are so glad we found you.”    April 2017

“The feedback has been overwhelming with many taking time to compliment you and the humanist element specifically. Your messages, poise and sincerity were perfect for the occasion and between us all, we did our baby daughter proud.”    January 2017

“The event itself was beautiful: it felt so true to our son’s spirit that several people were convinced we’d written it ourselves. It was attended by people of several different religions, some of whom said they would now consider humanist funerals for themselves. Someone also commented that if this was the first funeral a child had attended, it would mean they’d never be scared of going to a funeral in the future. It was a major step in allowing us to come to terms with our son’s death. Natalie conducted it impeccably, and we are so glad we chose her. The experience was genuinely life-enhancing. We would recommend her wholeheartedly.”      May 2016
