“I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for my dad’s service on Tuesday. It was a lovely celebration of him and the happy memories we relived at least provided some comfort at this time. The tribute you wrote lay the foundations for a beautiful piece about his life and we wouldn’t have known where to start without you. I was so glad I was able to contribute to it after you had written it, having been in Cyprus when you met my mum and sister. The day didn’t go without it’s bumps (Bobby crying at the start and us picking the wrong version of the reflection song – it was a much more upbeat one) however I think this all added to the day as things don’t always go as you plan/expect, as with life and you just have to go with it. I’m sure my sister and mum will be in touch too if they haven’t been already. Wishing you a fantastic Christmas. x”

“What can we say? Claire was fantastic from start to finish. We had a great Zoom introduction meeting with Claire and we knew pretty much instantly that we both wanted her to preside over our wedding ceremony. We met several celebrants so this speaks volumes for Claire’s naturally vivacious and warm personality. She was full of good ideas for the ceremony and worked closely with us to tailor it precisely the way we wanted it. Claire was always very responsive and supportive whilst we were finalising details of the ceremony and everyone at the wedding thought she was the consummate professional on the day itself – she struck exactly the right balance between humour and sobriety. As the headline says, we cannot recommend Claire highly enough! Oh and the memory box is a truly lovely touch!”

It was a reflection of excatly how she saw her life and it was the perfect balance of love, humour and memories. I am particularly grateful that it was so for my children. To be able to take their saddest day and some how make it feel special is quite a gift Claire.”
