‘In the months before the wedding, Jack was a wonderful, guiding spirit - he knew just when to call and nudge things along.  His understanding and appreciation of relevant reference texts - religious, secular, popular culture, poetry, musical, literary - meant that writing our own vows and service was a joy, not a burden.  His openness allowed the ceremony to be truly ours, whilst allowing for truth and an emotional honesty between us - he encouraged us to be honest with the words and passages we chose, to look inside ourselves and know the words we selected were meaningful.  On the day, Jack inspired in us and our guests, a real sense of union, and so many of our guests felt enveloped in the celebration of our day because of Jack and how he lead us through the blessing of our marriage.  So many friends and family commented how incredible they thought Jack was and we totally agree - we could not have asked for a better soul to be our celebrant.’ Lee & Sophie

‘You hit the nail on the head - our ceremony truly reflected us and our values. You both did a fantastic job. Not only did it reflect who we are but it also resonates with us daily about who we want to be. I find myself being reminded of the vows we took on an almost daily basis - the ceremony reflected us but also continues to shape us.’

Jeremy & Erin

‘We are so glad we found and chose you to be our celebrant.  You helped us have the wedding we dreamed of and it was everything (&more) we could have wished for.  Your guidance and support and humour throughout the preparations and on the day were invaluable to what was the most special, beautiful and memorable day of our lives.  Thanks for making what more than one guest described as the ‘best wedding ever!‘  It was great to start with a blank sheet and know we could put anything we liked on it.  We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.’  Angie & Max

‘We were thrilled with our commitment ceremony - it was beautiful! You added such value to our day. Our friends were engaged, energised and deeply moved. In fact, we hadn't anticipated just how moving the occasion would be. We met the Narrow Boat staff the following day and the man who managed the locks said, quite out of the blue, that he found that our event, after seeing many, had 'restored his faith in the act of honest commitment.' So thank you.’  Harriet & Kimberly

‘It was our pleasure to celebrate the day with you. God bless and may you continue to touch lives.’  Rachel & Mark

Baby blessing:

‘We can´t thank (and highly recommend) Jack enough for all his help in making the blessing for our son so intimate, personal and special. It was such an utterly beautiful and perfect day in every way.

Thank you Jack!!’  Kai’s parents, Mische & Ed:

‘Jack has such a lovely aura and calming presence which combined with his gentle spirit made our son’s blessing the most wonderful day. Everyone commented on how lovely it was. We highly recommend him.’ Teddy’s parents, Hayley & John:


‘We just wanted to thank you both for such a wonderful funeral service for Mum. Your care and attention was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble and you gave such sympathy to the whole service. We wanted a personal service about mum that celebrated her life; this was most certainly achieved. We have had nothing but praise about such a lovely service from friends and family.’  Colin & Anna
