When we started to plan our wedding - a relaxed, barefoot on a Kenyan beach vibe we both knew we didn’t want a traditional religious service but something meaningful and personal to us. And we wanted to write our own vows but frankly didn’t know where to start! Luckily just at that time Fan was recommended to us through our friendship network. We met up for an informal lunch and had a wonderful hour or so chatting over our story and what we wanted and from there Fan wrote the most delightful service for us and guided us to how to approach and write our vows. It was a moving moment to hear each other’s vows for the first time on our wedding day. Sadly we couldn’t magic Fan out to Kenya with us but she was there in spirit with us and we luckily found a charming priest there who was happy to read and conduct our bespoke, non religious service for us. If you are even considering making your wedding day more personal to you, I highly recommend you have a chat with the lovely Fan. She is a joy and we highly recommend her wonderful services - to have had her actually there conducting our service would have been the extra sparkle on the icing of the cake! She is heaven. Hugest heartfelt thank you, Fan
Well, where do we start ... from the very first email exchange (no lie) we just knew we were going to fall in love with this amazing lady. Her warm personality and genuine interest in us was evident from the very first 'hello'. On the Big Day there was not a dry eye in the marquee where our beautiful ceremony was held at Ash Barton Estate. Fan wrote a script that brought love, sincerity, humour and sheer emotion into one neat package, she tied it together with her special touch and sealed it with a label that had 'us' written all over it. As one of our guests described, "Fan had us in the palm of her hand, she commanded the whole ceremony but never took any of the limelight. You felt like you were in a safe pair of hands at all times and her focus was never anything other than you (the couple). It was without a doubt the most beautiful ceremony I've ever been too." Fan ... dear Fan ... words will never convey the gratitude we have for giving us the most personal, magical and precious ceremony we could have ever imagined and dreamed of. Something we will never forget. Thank you.
Fan was a wonderful addition to our wedding. Her take on our relationship and her engaging storytelling style really helped bring the ceremony together. We loved the amount of research she did on us and she knew exactly the right questions to ask. We also really appreciated her sending through the script as memento - all in all a wonderful service that we would recommend to anyone.
Fan was 100% a fundamental part in our wedding and the planning process. We got married back in October and couldn’t have asked for a more special and personal ceremony! From our initial meeting with Fan, we felt comfortable and loved how, together, we created a truly personal wedding ceremony, and felt like it was perfect for us. We loved that we felt like we were telling ‘our story’ and getting to share that with all our friends and family on our special day was the best. Almost every person that attended our wedding commented on our ceremony and how Fan was such a fantastic celebrant! One guest even said “why dosent every one do it like that?!” Fan, thank you so so much, we will remember you forever, you’re Fab
Fan was absolutely incredible, we couldn't have hoped for a more perfect celebrant for our big day. We wanted a really personal ceremony but for it to be fun (and funny) at the same time. Fan made it that and so much more.
When we met Fan for the first time we both knew she was the one for us. We both left the first meeting, took one look at each other and knew straight away. We then had some really fun meetings with Fan in the run up to the wedding. Discussing what we liked, didn't like, how we met, what we love about each other, what makes us laugh, what makes us cry happy tears, everything. She was so patient and reassuring, helping us through the whole process not just the ceremony itself. Helping with ideas for any rituals, examples of vows, things we might want to keep secret for the big day, where to put people, how to stage things. We really felt like Fan took everything in to account and weaved it all in to such a special ceremony.
On the wedding day itself, Fan was brilliant and made everyone feel at ease (especially Ollie, who was a bag of nerves waiting for his bride to be!). We had a few last minute changes but nothing was ever too much. All of our guests commented on how fun and personal the wedding ceremony was. Some even said it was genuinely the best wedding ceremony they'd ever been to!
She was such a huge part of making our wedding everything we wanted it to be we cannot thank her enough."
Fan made our day with her incredible humanist ceremony. I can’t recommend her enough!
It was such a personal, emotional and funny wedding ceremony and I’m so so glad we chose to go down this route. Fan summarised our characters and relationship perfectly, and so many of our guests commented on how much they loved it.
Fan you were just amazing and we are so happy we found you!
From our very first FaceTime meeting it felt like you were an old friend! We trusted you immediately, told you all our secrets and you created the most touching, hilarious, heart melting and meaningful ceremony for us, talking about us as if you had known us all our lives.
You had all our guests (and us) laughing one minute and in tears the next! We will treasure the memory of our special ceremony forever.
