A few kind words from recent ceremonies…


 Julie thank you for giving us the most perfect ceremony on Saturday, in spite of the wind! Everyone we spoke with said it was the most heartfelt service they’d ever experienced and it truly was tailored to us. We had the best day of our lives, thank you so much for being part of it and making the most important part the most memorable and wonderful part. We are off to France now but we will catch up when we return. Thank you again xx

 We wanted to make our wedding day more personal and flexible, so we were recommended Julie Leonard as a celebrant. We cannot thank Julie enough for her support and her efforts to make our wedding celebration amazing and everything we had hoped for. Her suggestions of readings, help with our personal vows and a beautiful ribbon heart in a display cabinet are just a few things Julie did and they all meant so much to us, we highly recommend her if you are looking for a celebrant!

 Dear Julie, we just wanted to thank you again for helping to make our wedding truly special. We absolutely loved the ceremony, it was so personal and warm that we couldn’t think of a better way to ‘tie the knot’ in front of our family and friends. The ribbons and parchment paper we will also treasure forever, so thank you for those. Best wishes for the future. With love and thanks xxxx

 Hi Julie. Thank you, it was a truly magical day, perfect in every way. I loved every minute of the day and every second of the ceremony. Thank you for being a part of our very special day and helping in all the ways that you have x



 Hi Julie, it’s my turn now. Our wedding day was just wonderful, magical, amazing and every other happy positive word in the dictionary. The ceremony was my favourite part, making our heartfelt promises to each other, it felt so intense in such a loving way. The energy was charged with love, excitement and emotion, I loved it. Like Shaun….my husband said, we loved having you to be a part of our day and will never ever forget it. Baby no 2 could definitely be a possibility next year!! Watch this space, that really is a beautiful offer. Thank you! Lots of love xxx



 Dear Julie, many thanks for your e-mail and also for sending the ribbons and script…..Thank you so much for sending them through, they are such a lovely memento of our wonderful day. Steve and I both said that the ceremony was our favourite part of the whole day and you really helped to make it special so thank you. Lots of our friends and family told us how different they thought it was and how much they’d enjoyed it too afterwards which was really lovely. Thank you so much again for all of your hard work for our wedding and for helping to make our day really very special indeed! xx



 Dear Julie, myself and (now I can say) my wife Rosie would both like to thank you ever so much for the wonderful service, we could not have asked for anything more. We had the most incredible day and thank you for being part of our special day. We truly had a fabulous time and our ceremony was just perfect! We really appreciated all your help and advice in the planning and we were pleased to have shared our special day with you. Words cannot express how blessed we felt being surrounded by our family & friends. Thank you too for the lovely booklet you prepared for us, we will keep it forever. We will definitely recommend you to all our friends looking to put together a truly memorable occasion.

 Whilst planning our ceremony Julie took her time to get to know us, enabling us to have a ceremony that suited us.  Julie helped us write our words and the words she wrote for the ceremony were beautiful.  Being something that we had never done before her advice was invaluable.  Before the ceremony, Julie helped put our wedding party of family and friends at ease during the rehearsal, whilst being professional.  After the ceremony she gave us a beautiful gift of the ribbons used to tie the knot which we treasure and holds pride of place on our wall.

 Hi Julie, we had an absolutely amazing day full of what Jackson said “fun and laughter” we wouldn’t have changed anything for the world, the rain certainly didn’t dampen our spirits and the sun came out for a couple of hours after the ceremony so we got our photos on the promenade. Thank you for all your help with leading our very personal and emotional ceremony. We are still talking about what an amazing day it was now and shall be for many years to come.



 Dear Julie, you were such an enormous help to us. You helped us release our sorrow at the funeral, wave after wave. And then carried us through the Memorial Service. So many people have written moved and inspired by the memorial service. Much love.



 Dear Julie, it is we who thank you for helping us through the week, keeping us together & conducting the ceremony most beautifully.
Our very best wishes to you.



 Thank you Julie for all your heartfelt commitment x



 Thank you for a wonderful service for Sophie. And all of us.



 Dear Julie, I was thinking of you this morning and feeling grateful for all the thought, time and love you put into the service. I could not have thought of a better captain to help us navigate this difficult time. 



 Thank you Julie, both services felt a completely fitting tribute and your hard work was a big part of that, thank you so much.



 Dear Julie, thank you so much for everything you have done.



 Julie went above and beyond for our ceremonies and crafted both a funeral and a memorial ceremony which both felt like an honest and moving reflection of my partner’s life and values. After taking time to really get to know the people who Sophie, my partner, was closest to, she thoughtfully assisted with the writing process, curated the final speeches and ensured that we would all be well prepared for the day itself so that it was able to flow smoothly. I feel deeply grateful for not just her work but also the empathy that she showed to me and our family during
this emotionally challenging time.
