Baby Naming Testimonial
Hi Phil,
Apologies for the late reply, had a busy couple of months! We're all well thank you.
The ceremony was fantastic, very professional but with a few personal touches. We liked that you came to visit us first to discuss our requirements and tailored the ceremony for us. Everyone commented afterwards how well the ceremony was conducted. We would definitely use your services again in the future and have highly recommended you to others.

Wedding at the Grand St Leger Hotel, Doncaster June 2011
Hi Phil. Thank you for your kind words and your help and understanding on the day We had a wonderful day and so many of our guests remarked on how lovely they found the service.  Many thanks again

Recently I had the pleasure of working with Phil and I was amazed at the professionalism which he brought to the wedding ceremony.  He was completely at ease with the ceremony,  which was like nothing I had seen before in the 7 years or so that I have been a professional photographer.  I have seen many, many weddings and it was nice to see one which had been written just for that couple and conducted with confidence and friendliness.   I very much look forward to working with Phil in the future.

Hi Phil,
I have just logged on to send you an email to say how pleased we were with the ceremony you conducted for us. So many commented on what a lovely ceremony it was and how fitting it was for the surroundings. My dad who was initially not sure about the ceremony is a convert and loved the fact that it was so personalised. Thanks again for your help organising it and making it just as we wanted.

Adoption Ceremony Sunday 22nd January 2012  Heslam Park Scunthorpe

The ceremony was just what we wanted and a perfect mix of celebrating both adoption and the boys becoming part of our family. Everyone present has since commented on how lovely and personal the ceremony was and there was quite a few tears shed too. 

Wedding, Wrawby, Brigg.  Nov. 2011

Phil, thanks for the wedding ceremony and the personal way in which you conducted it.  Many of our guests were complimentary about the service and couldn't understand how we could get married in a marquee in my sisters garden. I keep telling them that it was by special arrangement.   We look forward to seeing you again.  Sue

Garden Wedding  Saturday 20th May 2012

Hi Phil,
 Thanks so much for conducting the ceremony for us!  We absolutely loved it and had a superb day and a lot of people commented on how lovely the ceremony was so thank you.  Emily and Paul 

We didn’t want a church wedding and as we are both outdoors people we really liked the idea of getting married outside.  We had the perfect location but had no idea if we could make it happen.
After researching on the internet we found several celebrants and e-mailed three of them to ask them if they would be interested in conducting our ceremony.
Phil answered immediately and after we had told him what we were planning he sent over some further information to give us some ideas and offered to come over to meet us so that we could discuss our wedding in person.
After speaking via e-mail with the other celebrants we thought that we would like to meet Phil and arranged a meeting.
When we met Phil the following week he talked us through the basic structure that we would need to put together and said that he could help us with anything that we weren’t sure about.  He left some examples of readings and vows that we might like to use in our ceremony for us to have a look through.
We were very impressed by his professionalism yet  ‘down to earth’  manner which made him very easy to chat to and decided that we would like him to conduct our ceremony.
We stayed in regular contact over the next few weeks and we e-mailed the vows that we had decided to write ourselves for one another over to Phil with the music and readings that we had chosen.
Phil put everything together for us and e-mailed back a copy of the order of service for our approval – It was perfect!
On the day the ceremony ran without a hitch and Phil gave us exactly what we wanted with a friendly, personal touch to our special day.  Many of our guests commented on how they had enjoyed the ceremony and remarked on how they thought that Phil had been fantastic.
We felt that we had found the perfect person to help us to create our ‘unique’ wedding and would be happy to recommend Phil to anyone who was looking for a celebrant.

20's themed Wedding Celebration at Cave Castle - August 2012
Hi Philip,
Thankyou very much for conducting our ceremony and giving us the opportunity to do what we wanted, it was much better than we had hoped and ran so smoothly, so many people thanked us for inviting them and felt honoured to be at such an intimate ceremony (Obviously we were just as pleased they were there).  I was most uptight just before the big entrance but that dissolved into pure enjoyment when you started addressing the guests with our story and then running through the rest of the proceedings, as you know we were married earlier in the day in the register office, and the registrar was most annoyed with my lateness (15 minutes) and told Steve off! , she corrected my speech 3 times on the same sentence for 'legal reasons' which was most annoying as the rest of the party said I had said it properley anyway, (I would have felt humiliated in front of the 100 guests we had in the evening if that had happened then) 
Anyway thanks once again, we may be back to you about a christening appointment in the near future

Baby Naming Ceremony, Howsham Village Hall, May 2013
Hi Phil, we received the dvd of Logan's naming ceremony and it's great - thank you very much for a lovely keepsake.

Also, I just wanted to thank you again for conducting the ceremony. It was such a wonderful little service and we really enjoyed it. All our guests said how nice it was, especially with it been personalized, and we're really grateful for your input.

It is certainly a day we'll remember for a long time and was the perfect way to celebrate our son.

Many thanks,

Hi Philip,
We just wanted to thank you for leading our ceremony to renew our wedding vows. It was a moving day for us and you helped us celebrate our families commitment to one another.
