Janice was the celebrant at the funeral service of my Uncle. Janice was very helpful when it came to suggesting, choosing and sourcing the music, hymns and poems. She also liaised directly with the funeral directors and the crematorium to ensure that all arrangements were in place and everything ran smoothly on the day.
She spent time with the family to learn about the life of my uncle so she could write a eulogy that was in keeping with his life from a very young boy to the time of his death. Her delivery of the service was done with sincerity and sensitivity and the family were very grateful to her for the support she gave throughout this difficult time. Janice also provided a hard copy of the funeral service for the family to keep and took photographs of the funeral flower arrangements which we [the family] had not thought to do. We would highly recommend her as a celebrant, as an alternative to a more traditional religion based funeral.

I just wanted to thank you for the lovely service you gave at Rob’s service. It was everything I wanted it to be and felt incredibly personal. Many people commented on how nice it was and caught the essence of Rob and several assumed you were a friend of his, so you got it spot on!
I will always recommend you if the opportunity arises.

We decided to use Janice to do our blessing as the venue we had our hearts set on did not have a license. The best thing with having a blessing is you get to make your ceremony your own, and with the help of Janice we got to add a lot of our own special touches.
The one thing that we did have was a unity candle, which my husband and i and our two children lit, which was really special for us as we really wanted to get our children involved especially our oldest isn’t my husbands daughter but he has brought her up since she was five, this idea really did make it special for us, and something we wouldn’t of thought of if it wasn’t for Janice.
We had such an amazing day and a lot of people commented on how original and romantic our ceremony was, so thank you Janice for being a big part of our special day.
Alfred and I would like to say thank you for all the special arrangements for the Renewal of Vows Ceremony you arranged for us, we really enjoyed it. It was lovely the way it was all set out and meeting other couples married in 1952. We wish you lots of luck in the future and thank you so much once again.
Alfred and Irene Sturgess
We would like to thank you, the Comet, eat lunch and all those involved in organising the “Renewal of Vows” celebration at the Spirella Ballroom in Letchworth.
We enjoyed it so much and will always remember the occasion of our Diamond Wedding Anniversary with happiness, especially as it was the same year as the Queen celebrating her Diamond Jubilee. We were particularly impressed with the way that it all went so smoothly, which we think was mainly down to your dedication to every detail. Thank you once again.
Arthur and Betty Harris
We would like to thank Janice for organising and inviting us and our guests to the Renewal of Vows event at the Spirella Ballroom.
We had never been inside the venue before and thought the whole setting arrangements looked very grand.
The folder with our certificate and service is a much appreciated momento which we can show our family, and what a lovely surprise to see the event on Anglia television. Thank you once again for making this a very pleasant memorable occasion.
Peter and Rita Harrison
Congratulations on all your stirring efforts making Tuesday such a memorable day. It was easy to see that a lot of hard background work had gone into the arrangements. All the people I spoke to thought it was well done. Best Wishes for the future.
Ron and Vi Sheppey
A very sincere thank you for an extremely enjoyable time at the Spirella Ballroom today. Also for the chance to share the diamond landmark occasion with other couples, two of which have been known to Mary and I for many years. Thank you for the opportunity to renew our vows, made a lifetime ago.
The careful and considerate manner in which the whole occasion was organised and the personal approach which made us feel at ease was a credit to you. None of the underlying meaning of the purpose was lost.
Howard and Mary Roberts
Congratulations on the success of your renewal of vows ceremony today and for getting on the local news, both on the early evening and 10 o’clock bulletins – that must do you a huge amount of good!
I for one am very proud of what you achieved today. Well done.
Peter Wyllie, AOIC President
Thank you for making our day so special on Saturday. The whole day exceeded our expectations, even the weather behaved itself. All our friends and family commented on how lovely the ceremony was – many had never heard about naming ceremonies before and they were touched by how personal the ceremony was. It is certainly a day that we will remember and we cannot thank you enough for playing a huge part in the organisation of it. The balloon release was a huge hit and I am so glad you suggested the idea.
Thank you again, Claire, Mike, Harry, Zack and Siena
Thank you so much for a lovely ceremony. When we first met and I explained we were having a naming ceremony for a 15 year old, I did wonder how you would cope. You could not have made the day more personal, caring and full of love as if you had known my daughter all of her life. You also made all the godparents totally involved. Lauren and I have a wonderful memory thanks to you.
My husband and I decided to have a naming day for our little boy and Janice was highly recommended to us by a friend who had recently had her naming ceremony with Janice and described the day as ‘divine’.
And she was absolutely right. Janice was extremely friendly, professional and easy to talk to. She came to the house before the ceremony and talked things through. She explored my wishes and ideas and came up with suggestions as to how they could be included in the ceremony. She was available to answe4r any of my questions before the day and returned my calls extremely promptly.
The actual ceremony was wonderful. Janice performed a concise clear and beautiful service that was enjoyed by everyone. I would definitely arrange this ceremony again with Janice if I have any more children. I would recommend her to anyone who would like to arrange a naming day to be remembered
We recently had a wonderful naming ceremony for our daughter conducted by Janice and we would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone. From the moment I contacted her when looking for a celebrant she was outstandingly professional and helpful and delivered a truly special ceremony for us.
As we were unfamiliar with the area we wanted the ceremony in, she offered to look for us and found a wonderful venue that was perfect in location, setting and budget.
Her order of service was lovely and in the pre-consultation Janice was full of good ideas on how we could make our service unique. Our friends and family who attended all said what a fantastic and personal ceremony we had and how much they had enjoyed it as many had not heard of a naming ceremony before. For us it was a lovely alternative to a traditional Christening service to welcome our little one to the family and to formally appoint her godparents.
Clare and Austen
Thank you so much for performing such a wonderful ceremony for my son on his naming day. You made the ceremony so beautiful and everyone really enjoyed it. I hope we will meet again in the future and I will recommend you highly to anyone I speak to. Thanks again.
I would just like to say how much I appreciated all your hard work to give Arnold a good send off. I have had a number of people say how much they enjoyed the service and particularly your presentation.
I do thank you so very much. I’m glad to say that also had quite alot of compliments on the choice of music so all your running around paid off.
Once again, sincere thanks from me and all the family
Thank you so much for everything. I felt you put your heart and soul in it too. I can not thank you enough. The Order of Services were beautiful. We did mum proud.
Peace and love

Thank you so much for performing our wedding ceremony. It was exactly what we wanted and I am so glad we decided to go with this in the end.
Katie and Andrew
A little late, but thank you so so much for such a wonderful naming ceremony for Woody. Everyone commented how personal you made it, it was a very special day. It was so kind of you to offer to play ‘I’m forever blowing bubbles’ too! Luke and I were so impressed and incredibly grateful to you for doing it. It was more than you had to do, but it just showed how much you love doing your job and go that extra mile, it really made the ceremony.
I have made a DVD with my Mum, which I will drop off so you can relive the wonderful moment with you and your guitar! I have also attached some photo’s for you as well.
Love Emma x
Thank you very much for a lovely service the family also believed Peggy would have loved what we did for her.
Thank you again
