I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the service at Whimple on Tuesday taken by yourself. You certainly made it feel like a joyous occasion. So many people commented on how lovely it all was and some even said it was the best funeral they had been to!!
Thank you so, so much for the perfect manner in which you conducted our wedding. We have lots of pictures of people laughing as well as looking serious at the appropriate moments.
Thank you for the lovely service you gave our Dad. It was really personal, emotional but with some humour and you captured so many of the things we loved about him. A number of people also said how lovely the service was and we wanted you to know that.
Neither of us got a chance to say thanks after the ceremony in December, we were kind of swept away as soon as it was all over, but we both wanted to say thanks for making it go so well. Heather was particularly glad as you made her feel less stressed and nervous (the ceremony was never going to be her favourite part!). Thanks again from us both.
I cannot express fully in words how comforting and protective your company felt on that emotion laden day. Your presence was invaluable in leading us all along in our grief and celebration. I cannot thank you enough for the work you put in and your patience and understanding of our situations prior to the event. Mum's little service, of tribute to her life and our chance to say goodbye formally, were so discreetly facilitated by you it helped us all so much and I want to offer a very sincere acknowledgement to you and my deepest thanks.
Hi Alicen, I just wanted to message and say thank you for all the effort you put in to today. I've never been to a funeral before where I felt so like the person supporting the family knew the person. It meant more to us than you will ever know. Your calm presence wasn't intrusive but beautifully supportive, you truly are amazing at your job. Thank you.
Thank you so much for the very warm and caring attention you gave us particularly as I was just SO surprised – even when I arrived I had no idea why people were sitting in rows in the room. The service was perfect and I couldn’t have added anything by being involved in the planning.
Just to say a very big thank you for conducting Mum’s service. You did a great job and really captured the essence of what an exciting and fun person my Mother was. We had so many comments on how beautiful the service was.
I just wanted to thank you so much for your assistance in delivering a wonderful send off for J. It truly was a memorable and uplifting funeral. I have had so many positive comments about the ceremony and it seems to have converted few people as well. It really reflected who she was and I know it’s what she would have wanted so that makes me happy. Thanks again Alicen.
Alicen was brilliant! We could not have asked for a better celebrant. She introduced us to some great ideas that we would not have come up with on our own and really helped us develop what we had in mind. Alicen was calm, confident, warm and organised. She worked in plenty of humour (which we asked for), really engaged with the guests to deliver a ceremony that many of our friends and family have described as "the most personal, unique and enjoyable wedding ceremony they had ever been to"
Thank you for all your hard working making the funeral and memorial a wonderful experience. Everything seemed to go smoothly thanks to your excellent planning. Your calmness and presence washed over us all and I took strength from your strength.
Rick and I would like to say a big THANKYOU for making our commitment ceremony absolutely delightful. Everyone enjoyed the day very much and we partied until midnight! Without your excellent skills I am sure the day would not have gone so smoothly. The ceremony itself was perfect. Fun, light-hearted but sincere where necessary.
Alicen is so professional and friendly, even on our first meeting it felt that we had known her for years. She made us feel so relaxed and listened to everything that we wanted our ceremony to be. Alicen also keep in contact with us while writing the ceremony.
All the threads you have pulled together..... Beautiful, simply beautiful.
I am very grateful indeed for the care that you took and the advice you gave for the organisation of the funeral service for J.E. The time you allocated in preparation and speaking to those who knew J meant that, as so many people commented, what you said was just right. And the whole order of service, and its component parts, were perfect, so that we ended with a simple and very appropriate mix of prayers, reflection and music. Thank you so much for your sympathetic and professional planning and conduct of the service.
Thank you so much for such a lovely wedding ceremony. You made our day just perfect – it was a truly wonderful day for us both
We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the way you conducted our wedding. You kept us all giggling and created a wonderful and relaxed ceremony and atmosphere which was exactly what we both wanted. Thank you for helping to make our day so very special.
A quick note to say thank you. Everything you did was perfect. It was a wonderful ceremony full of love; your words were much appreciated by everybody. Your job is tricky! And you do it so well:) Thank you from all the family.
We can’t thank you enough for conducting the service for our daughter. It was an emotional day for all of us but your warmth and compassion shone through. Many people commented on how beautiful the service was.
Rob and I just want to say a huge thank you for the amazing ceremony you did yesterday. It was just right for us and our friends and family. Very laid back and friendly. Thank you for including our puppy Digby 😊 It was all just perfect.
