Since launching It’s all in a Name, I, along with Claire, have had the privilege of working with some wonderful and caring families, to help create and deliver Ceremonies. I am proud to share with you some of their comments and compliments.

“Good morning Jill!
  Thank you ever so much for being our wedding celebrant yesterday. I’d say it was the busiest / fastest / best 12 hours of my life! 

We were both extremely impressed and happy with your beautiful service.”

Chris & Steph. July, 2018.

“Jill, thank you for being part of our day. You were the perfect choice.. Graceful, considerate and professional. But not so professional that we didn’t connect.. we felt our marriage was conducted by a friend, and we hope to catch up with you on our return from Italy and build on that friendship.

Thank you so very much.”

Bridgette & Andy. May, 2018. 

“Hi Claire!!

Thank you so much for all your time and energy making our ceremony so special 2 weeks ago today! It was so amazing, and lots of people said how beautiful it was. So a massive thank you for everything you did, and just being so lovely. The gift you gave us was really meaningful, and unexpected! You are really sweet.

We appreciate you so much, and had the most terrific day with all our loved ones.”

“Hi Claire

Thank you so much for today. It was perfect we were so grateful and so happy about the ceremony. Thank you so much for everything you did to make it so special for all of us.

Thank you so so much for Saturday!!! I’m sorry I didn’t catch you before you left after the ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful and everyone agreed

“Morning Jill.

Can we take this opportunity to pass on our sincere thanks to you for a wonderful service you gave to Melvyn yesterday , 

Our family were amazed with your compassion and commitment to detail in such a personal way and by the end of the service they felt that you were part of our family (amazing) . CJ Williams recommended you Jill and I can see why. Words cannot express our gratitude. to you Jill and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you once again Jill, your sincerely.”

“I wanted to thank you for the absolutely amazing job you did at Lily’s naming ceremony! We are so grateful to have found you, Aaron and I were so happy with the ceremony and we had so many comments from guests about how well delivered and lovely it was. Also several comments about how well you dealt with Annabelle, Noah and Lily during the ceremony. So thank you, for helping us plan and deliver Lily’s naming ceremony and for being a part of our life, even if only very briefly.”

“Dear Jill,

Thank you so very much for working with me to create the most perfect surprise wedding, for myself, and my now husband Wayne! You really feel like part of our family now, having been involved with so many of our very special occasions.”

Clare & Wayne. January 2017.

“Dear Jill,

My family, guests and I would like to extend our sincere thanks for delivering what was described as the most “amazing and uplifting” funeral that they had attended.

In fact, one guest said afterwards that this is the funeral she wants, and will instruct her children that you will be doing her funeral, 

oh, but not for a long time yet!!!

Jill, the guests could not believe that you had never met Jack, and thought you were a family friend, as your delivery was so very warm and heartfelt and full of empathy, you talked about Jack as though you had known him for a long time.

It was very personal and touching.

Thank you for making it a true day of celebration of Jacks life.”

Royston & Family. November 2016.

“Good morning Jill,

We would like to say a massive thank you for the service on Saturday you did for my mum Jan. It was simply beautiful Jill. We have had so many messages & comments about how well you took the service, it was just how mum would have wanted it.

Lots of people have people asking who is this lady, where did you find her! She is fantastic! 

All the best Jill, you are a lovely lady & we are so glad we met you.”

Nikki, Shaun & Joe. October 2016.

“Dear Jill,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our weddding ceremony, at Delbury Hall so perfect and personal. We had the most perfect day, and are so glad that you were a special part of it in so many ways!”

Liam & Bekki. August 2016.

“Thank you Jill for making the naming ceremony for my son and nephew so personal and such fun. The boys so enjoyed their very special day as did all our family and friends; even the emotional bits which brought a tear to our eyes. Morgan was so proud to show everyone the pumpkin he had grown for his very special day, and Ethan was delighted to be able to join in at the announcing of his name.”

Lucinda & Ed. October 2014

“Dear Jill,

I feel that I must write to you, with regard to my darling Maureen’s service on 24th inst.

It was the very best service anyone could have hoped for, it was superb, we could not have wished for anything more appropriate and heartfelt in every way.

 Every mourner there expressed their very high regard for the way that you conducted it, especially so that there was a minister, and a minister’s daughter there, looking on and probably taking notes! Some people there have already said that they want a similar arrangement when they go.

 So thank you for making the very worst day of my life bearable, but I am sure that the next time that you and I connect, will be when it is my turn to move on.

In the meantime, all the very best that life can offer you and yours……………goodbye,  and may your god go with you.”

Tony Eadon-Mills. March 2014 

“Hello Jill,

Hope you are well.

Just a quick email to thank you so much for the beautiful service that you delivered for my dad last week, it was beautiful, it summed up who and how dad was in life, what he loved and what he didn’t love so much, it was very fitting and at a very traumatic time, you gave us peace through your words, We know this would have been what he wanted, as he wasn’t religious.

All of the family also remarked on how beautiful it was too.

Thank you once again”

Joanne Engvikson. March 2014


My husband and I wanted to thank you so much for all of the time you spent designing our daughter’s naming ceremony with us. We deeply appreciate the hard work, creativity and commitment that you demonstrated to us and our entire family in helping to make the day truly special!

When we first started planning, we had no idea that we would end up with such a personalised, beautiful ceremony. Your confidence and loving nature shone through during your interactions with our 6 month old daughter and your kind, fun attitude made our ceremony a joy to be a part of.

Thank you. Our day would not have been the same without you.

Nadine & Dan Roach. July 2013
