I feel honoured to be asked to help people celebrate special moments in their lives, and it means so much when I get a thank you message. Included below are some nice words about weddings and civil partnerships that I received when I was a Registrar with the local authority.

If you would like to discuss your ceremony with me, please email me at or give me a call on 07554 342697.

Thank you for conducting our Renewal of Vows ceremony. You got it exactly right. It was so helpful that you spent time beforehand, listening, guiding and supporting. You have exactly the right manner, and our friends made so many nice comments afterwards.

Our love,

Annie and Pete

We just wanted to thank you for the Baby Naming ceremony you conducted for Jack. You gave us great guidance from the moment we met you, and encouraged and supported us. On the day, the ceremony couldn't have been better. We had so many lovely comments from people. It was a very special day and we are so pleased that we were able to have you as the celebrant.

Thank you so much,

Emily and Simon

Thank you very much indeed for the eulogy for Jons. We couldn't be better pleased. I was also much helped by the knowledge you could take over from me in a seamless way if need be. And also for the balance you gave to your remarks for the religious, the non-religious and those in between. Jons might have called it a "tricky" call! People after the ceremony were full of praise for you, and much moved by it.

Yours very sincerely,

Michael (on behalf of us all)

We just wanted to thank you so much for conducting such a memorable wedding ceremony for us. Naturally, it was the most special and memorable part of the day for us, but also so many of our guests commented on how lovely the civil ceremony was. A special thank you to you Tricia for this and for all your help before. We felt more as though we were being married by a friend than a stranger, having met you on the Thursday, and you helped us to feel so much more relaxed about the proceedings - much appreciated!

Our heartfelt thanks,

George and Jules

Just to say how much we appreciated your duty as our Celebrant yesterday. All your well-chosen words were much appreciated. You must have put a great deal of thought into the service.

With appreciation and thanks,

Fiona and Arthur

I honestly can't thank you enough for yesterday. You were incredible. Everyone I spoke to thought you were marvellous, and made the service go smoothly.It was a tough day to get through, and I'm glad we managed it. A number of people felt it was the best service they have ever attended. You painted a perfect picture of my dad, and delivered it beautifully.

So once again, many thanks.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for your service on Friday. Everyone commented on how lovely and well delivered it was.

Many thanks,


I could sense you were the right person for Brin when I met you. There have been so many positive messages for the day, mostly "the loveliest funeral they had ever been to". Thank you for being part of it.

Take care,


Thank you so much for making our wedding something really special. The personal touch was much appreciated. We together with our family and friends enjoyed the whole experience.

Once again our best thanks,

Caroline and David

Now that life has settled down a bit Mum has asked me to write to thank you for the lovely service you gave for Dad. We all felt that you made the whole day very personal to us and your lovely words were a great comfort for all of us. We knew that Dad's day would be in good hands with you guiding us. Thank you again from the whole family.

Kindest regards,


Thank you so very much for the wonderful way in which you conducted our marriage service. You made it so special and so meaningful and we received so many compliments and positive comments. I have to confess to being relieved as we had expected a more "official" service and were delighted at how you seemed to care. Your comments on the daughter/father relationship were wonderful too, especially when one loves ones father as much as I do mine. Thank you again, most sincerely, for making our special day even more meaningful and memorable.

Best regards,

Nigel and Cindy

I wanted to say thank you on behalf of myself, David and the family for the lovely tribute you gave for Mum. You had obviously put a great deal of thought in to the content and everyone commented on how well and sympathetically you delivered it. We were lucky to have got you.

Best Regards,


We just wanted to convey our personal thanks to you for carrying out such a fantastic civil partnership ceremony. It all hit the right tone and both Isabel and I, along with our guests, loved every minute of it.

Thanks again,

Linda and Isabel


Thank you so much for the lovely service today for Barry, it was all perfect, we couldn't have wished for anything better. Everyone said what a lovely service it was and said you were so good they thought you knew us personally.

Thanks once again,

Angela, Sheila and Teresa

Thank you so much for yesterday, you caught the essence of who my dad was perfectly and my mum and I really appreciated it.

Kind regards,


I have been meaning to email you to say a very big thank you for your contribution and leadership in the day and build up to the funeral. You really helped us get through it and we are very grateful. I think Dad would have liked all the arrangements. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends.

Thank you again,

On behalf of all the family, I would like to thank you for the lovely service you performed yesterday. It was greatly appreciated by us all, and everyone present felt you got the message "just right". At a time when most people do not find it easy to express the things they would like to, it was perfect that you were there for a smooth afternoon. Thank you, once again.

Very best wishes,


Thank you so much for helping us to have such a special day - you were brilliant.

Love & best wishes,

Chris and Mike

Just a quick email to thank you for sending the three copies of dad's funeral service, which I was not expecting. After talking to adult members that were there, they seemed to enjoy (perhaps not the correct word) the service as well as Teresa & myself. Thanks for the time you spent putting it all together & delivering it on the day.

We felt you were extremely welcoming on our meeting prior to the ceremony and the instructions on the proceedings were given in a clear, efficient and calming way. The ceremony itself was a very pleasant experience for us, helped by your relaxed, familiar and friendly nature. In fact several guests asked if we knew you and were surprised to know we had only briefly met before, which I consider is a credit to you.

With Regards,


Just a note to thank you again for conducting Dads service, we were pleased with the way everything went and a good number of people came to pay their respects, many of whom commented on the service.

Kind Regards,


Thank you for a great service Tricia, you did a great job. Mother would have been extremely proud and happy with her send-off.



We wanted to thank you for your contribution to what Abi describes as her "perfect day". From our point of view we are unable to think of any way it could have been improved and we cannot think of anything that went wrong. It really must have been quite an event if we can say such things. Thank you for performing your duty so ably and with a light, gentle and humorous touch that was greatly appreciated.


Father of the Bride

Thank you Tricia, it was lovely to meet you, and thank you for all your help yesterday. Sorry you couldn't join us at Horsted, you missed a great gathering, a party mummy would have loved! Our thanks and gratitude once again.

Suzanne, Adam, Julie & Anthony.

Thanks so much for your sensitive and accurate portrayal of my Mother during the service. All my relatives found it a very moving ceremony and one that made them smile too.

Thanks again,


Thank you so much for presiding over the formalities as part of a really memorable wedding day for Kathy and Matt last Friday. The ceremony was just perfect and a very special part of a wonderful day.

Thanks again,

Mother of the Bride
