Choosing Beth as the celebrant for our wedding was the best decision we made. She is infinitely kind, has a gift with listening and talking with people, and gave us a ceremony that we thought we could only ever dream of. It was so personal and so unique, and she guided us through the whole process with the care and thoughtfulness that you usually think you could only ever have from friends or family. Designing our ceremony with Beth are some of my fondest memories of my wedding planning. So many of our guests came up to us and said it was the best wedding ceremony they've ever been to, and that they laughed, cried, and felt like they had been a part of something really special. She is a professional with a true gift, and I honestly couldn't recommend Beth enough. We will be forever grateful for the support, love, wisdom and friendship that she gave to our ceremony.

Wedding, October 2023, Beechwood Hall, Cooksbridge, Sussex

We had so many comments from people about how lovely the service was and how lovely and attentive you were from start to finish.  We felt truly cared for and looked after.


On the drive home I said to Pete "I want Beth to do my funeral" and that set off the usual argument of who's going first.In a strange way I hope we get to meet with you again, you turned a sad situation into an easy one and for that we will always be grateful.

So thank you once again and please know I will be recommending you to everyone I meet!

Beth planned and conducted a perfect and unique ceremony for our wedding last week. From the first meeting she had so many ideas to make our ceremony full of fun and personal to us. Her style is both sentimental and funny, and there were lots of moments throughout the ceremony that will stick in my mind for ever. We are so grateful to Beth for all her hard work and creativity. She is the perfect celebrant.

Thank you so much for yesterday. When you were speaking it sounded as if you knew him, it was very personal. So many people commented on the service and said how much they enjoyed it. Once again, many many thanks. You certainly took the strain out of the day and made it an enjoyable, although sad, occasion.

I was a guest at a wedding that Beth conducted last weekend and it was a brilliant ceremony! She made everyone feel relaxed and welcome and created a lovely atmosphere. It really set the scene for the rest of the day.
The ceremony I was so well tailored to the couple; the right balance of tradition, a bit of emotion and sensitivity, but it was also light hearted and full of joy.
Her delivery was really natural and sincere. It was clear that she had taken the time to understand what the couple wanted.
Everyone was talking about it at the reception!

Wedding, May 2023, couple's garden in Sussex

Thank you Beth, you helped us all along a very difficult and painful part of this road. Talking with you made us able to see, think and feel very important things about Abi - thank you.

The service was beautiful and we are all so grateful to you.

Funeral, July 2023, South Avenue Cemetery, Hurstpierpoint

Beth did THE BEST WEDDING CEREMONY we ever could have wished for. Attention to detail, care, organisation and advise along the way. We were worried it was all going to sound cheesy and we were struggling to get the tone right but she helped us to get it spot on and was VERY patient! The result was relaxed, completely us, loving and sentimental! Thank you Beth. You nailed it!

Wedding, May 2023, Couple's Garden, Sussex

Thank you so much for listening and for understanding the send off that I wanted for Dad and delivering it so perfectly. You really captured who he was as a person and I am incredibly grateful. 

Funeral, February 2023, Woodvale Crematorium, Brighton

Beth was the most wonderful celebrant you could ever wish for at our son's wedding. She was relaxed, joyful, composed and inclusive - I cannot praise her enough! Every guest has a brilliant time. Don't hesitate to have this lovely lady conduct your ceremony.

Wedding, May 2023, Danehill Sussex

Wow, where do I start? You were truly amazing and you were just fantastic! You did my Mum proud! I have no way of ever thanking you enough for what you did!! I just do not know where to start...all I can say is a HUGE HUGE HUGE THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!

Funeral, October 2022, Surrey and Sussex Crematorium followed by Burial, Crawley

Wow Beth is a superstar!! We definitely weren't the easiest bride and groom to write a ceremony for but she pitched it and delivered it perfectly. I can't recommend Beth highly enough, I actually want to sing it from the rooftops. A million thank yous!

Wedding, May 2023, Couple's Garden Sussex

Thanks so much for leading the service for us yesterday. You did it beautifully.  We really liked the way, when you were mentioning people there, that you picked them out and directed what you said toward them/us.  That was a nice personal touch. You had obviously scanned the group and had a good idea who was who and that was a kind touch. 


It was great too that you could remain steady after our personal tribute which obviously became quite emotional for me.  Its a difficult job you do but you really handled it well. I understand why you decided to take it up.

Once again,  and on behalf of us all, thanks for leading. We are glad it was you.

Funeral, January 2023, Hills Cemetery Chapel, Horsham

Beth conducted a wedding ceremony for us and it was simply excellent!! A great balance of personal tales of how we met, our journey so far together and weaving in the traditions of a marriage ceremony. Everyone loved the ceremony, not just us, which I think is testament to how Beth conducted and curated our ceremony with us to make it unique. A massive thanks to Beth, she really is an amazing celebrant, just wish we could do it all again!

Wedding, May 2022

Beth did my father's service and from the very first meeting with Beth we found her to be so caring and we felt as a family that she really understood the pain we were going through. Beth made us feel very relaxed and she made us feel that she was part of our family. We would definitely recommend Beth to friends and other families going through this sad time.

Funeral, May 2022

Beth was all we could have wished for to give my Mum the best send off possible. When we first met Beth, I instantly got a warming vibe off her and she was welcomed into my home with lots of laughs. On the day of my Mum’s funeral she was soft, kind, loving and supportive and we couldn’t have wished for anyone better. Thank you very much Beth.

Funeral, June 2022, Downs Crematorium, Brighton

We attended a wonderful wedding conducted by Beth recently. The ceremony was extremely personal with the perfect balance of humour and heartfelt emotion. We would without a doubt recommend Beth if you’re looking for a superb celebrant.

You delivered a service that touched the hearts of us all, your manner and tone was so sincere everyone commented on that, so thank you.

Can't thank you enough for yesterday...just wanted you to know, that so many folk came up to me and said, how it was such a beautiful celebration of her life.
