We can say, hand on our hearts, that without Diana’s particular ceremony our day would not have been received in the same extremely positive way. Our guests absolutely loved the whole event but said that the ceremony served to represent us perfectly. The personal chat before the day, when Diana came to Edinburgh to visit us at home, enabled her to establish our particular requirements. To be honest, we weren’t sure exactly what we wanted, but Diana carefully guided us through all the options and it was only with this guidance that we arrived at the perfect format for us! On the day itself, Diana arrived and took time to familiarise herself with the surroundings and also some close family members. She then seamlessly delivered a ceremony that was very personal and so ‘right’ for us – we were extremely happy with the tone she managed to create and effortlessly maintain.
I would like to thank you for conducting Lucy’s naming ceremony. Your attention to detail, in an eloquent service lovingly delivered, embraced the diverse traditions of our family and friends bringing us closer to one another on that day. Your words delivered with grace and humour, were meaningful, inclusive and sensitive to our needs and beliefs …….. Our wonderful day together brought much happiness. Thank you Diana. (From Lucy’s Gran)
I just wanted to formally thank you for playing such a big part – the most important part – of our day. The service was perfect and many of our guests commented on how lovely and unique it was – and i believe several tears were shed, and not just by the women present! …. We can’t thank you enough for creating our ceremony and allowing us to incorporate all the different elements that were important to both Mark and I and our families.
This is really, really great. Thank you so much …Thank you again, I think you have positioned this perfectly for the two of us so I’m absolutely thrilled.
We just wanted to drop you a short note to say a huge thank you for officiating our wedding last week. We loved every second of the day but the ceremony really was perfect and every word you said meant something to us both. Many of our guests commented on how different the ceremony was and how emotional and meaningful it was which is exactly what we wanted.
I hope you are well, thank you again for the ceremony draft…..Both of us have read the draft and think it is very much what we were looking for, we have another look every couple of days with fresh eyes but have not thought of anything we would like to change.
After much debate about our wedding ceremony we decided that we wanted a ceremony that meant something very personal to us and our families … We had a free standing torch that we lit during the ceremony and the burning flame was a symbol that our loved ones were with us in spirit on our wedding day. From the minute I met Diana I knew that she was going to be perfect for our wedding day, she was everything that I had envisaged for our plans, with a wonderful calming voice and great friendly personality. I had a vision in my head all along of how we both wanted our ceremony to be, Diana pulled it off, I couldn’t believe that this wonderful lady that we had only met briefly over a coffee had delivered our vision in absolute perfection, I cannot thank you enough Diana.
Just wanted to drop a line to you to let you know how wonderful the ceremony was. Everyone raved about it!…..We’re now enjoying married life in Malaysia on our honeymoon.
I just want to thank you so much for performing such a beautiful service for Gayle and Steven. It was so personal and emotional. … I cannot tell you how proud I was of the service and Gayle and Steven’s commitments to each other, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room, and perhaps it will make people think about other faiths in a kinder way now….. It was a wonderful day and everyone was so impressed by your service and by your ability to be completely calm and serene which we all found to be very infectious. (From Gayle’s mum)
We were really really pleased with our wedding ceremony…. We had lots of compliments about the ceremony from our wedding guests-they all thought it was lovely and very personal. (Milena)
The ceremony was great. The duration, order of service and content was perfect. There really was nothing that we would have changed. Thankyou for being part of, and contributing to, our special day. (Kumar)
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for conducting our wedding ceremony. Everyone commented on how lovely the ceremony was and it is a day we will never forget! It was lovely to have such a warm, relaxed and personal ceremony. It was nice to be able to recognise the different cultures and traditions in the room. I have attached a photo from the day which I think sums that up perfectly!
Wow, this is beautiful Diana! I can’t wait to show Chris when he gets in from work. I had tears in my eyes reading this…. (Lorna, on reading the first draft of their wedding script)
