"Sian was our celebrant for our recent rescheduled (thanks to Covid) wedding held in my mum’s garden. She has been an absolute joy to work with throughout the process even with all the changes we’ve thrown at her. She is super calm and helped us structure this ceremony and another for our wedding celebration with more guests next year. Sian really took the time to get to know us and has created not one but two beautiful, heart felt ceremonies for us. She was a calming, organised influence on the day and working with her has been a breeze.
All our guests raved about the ceremony and Sian conducted it beautifully and was open to all our ideas including our dog being the ring bearer (in return for a pigs ear!). We cannot recommend Sian enough if you want your ceremony to be THE BEST part of your entire day and set the tone for the rest of your wedding. She truly is money well spent and we’re so pleased we decided to have a Humanist ceremony with Sian at the helm! Can’t wait to do it all again for next years wedding celebration! Em & Jon xx"

"Sian was our celebrant on 18th September 2021 and it was honestly one of the best days. The service was absolutely perfect, so personal, funny, and exactly what we had both hoped for. The feedback from family & friends was so positive and the number of people who commented “I've never been to a wedding like this before”, or “it was the best wedding I’ve ever been too”, were common sentences we heard throughout the day & for days after. People who didn't even attend the wedding came up to us and said they had heard how amazing the service was.
Planning the wedding during a global pandemic was no easy feat! But Sian went above & beyond to ensure we both felt completely happy with the service she had put together & got to know us both in person & via FaceTime. Our day also included a ‘naming ceremony’ for our beautiful baby boy Reuben, something we would have never considered if Sian hadn’t mentioned it. With Dan’s family living 280miles away, it was the perfect opportunity to have all his nearest & dearest together alongside mine to share this special moment on our special day. We could not recommend Sian more, she is original, funny, enthusiastic, passionate, meticulous and throughout the process becomes a friend. She had Dan in absolute bits at the first draft she prepared. Thank you Sian, you made our day everything we wanted & more.
All our love, The Summersons xxx"

"Having spoken to several celebrants the first moment we spoke to Sian over zoom we both knew that she was the humanist wedding celebrant for us. She stood out at that initial moment because she was so genuinely interested in our story, so excited to get to know us and it instantly felt like she was a new friend rather than someone we were simply going to employ. She proved herself to be exactly what we’d hoped for. Hardworking, keen for precision over the finer details of what makes us ‘us’, and enthusiasm to celebrate it with us. She has a lovely sense of fun about her, sense of humour and a complete lack of judgment, it was just effortless to spend a whole afternoon with her to really talk it all through.
She was clear about her direction, gently guided us and suggested lots of different ideas but let us choose what what felt right for us. Then she took our combined outline and filled it up with lots of hilarious alliteration, tales of love and romance and a little bit of swearing! After the ceremony (and for a long while after) people could not stop talking about it, how it was the best wedding they’d been to, how it was lovely that it was so personal, how it was so fitting, as well as so funny! A religious friend even said it was better than any church wedding she’d been to but one of our favourite quotes is ‘quite the most special wedding I’ve ever been to’. Sian definitely didn’t disappoint! She was well organised, a great communicator, accurately grasped the essence of us with ease and ceased the day with absolute professionalism (which was very reassuring when you’re a nervous wreck!). We both have nothing but praise for Sian and can wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone. A generous spirit who has the intellect, performance skills and most importantly, the heart, to lead any wonderful wedding. Huge thanks to you Sian and please don’t forget to save that date for our vow renewals in 10 years time! With much love, Sarah & Jules 💚🐌💜🐌💙"

"Sian!!! You are an absolute legend.
Never having been to a humanist ceremony we didn't know what to expect, but you took such pride in creating our ceremony it truly blew us away. You exceeded any expectations we did have. You made the ceremony personal to us, funny, tear jerking and energetic. You even competed with an aeroplane which joined us doing loop the loops and kept all our guests entertained and engaged. Plus you threw in surprises which Amy and I loved. Delilah went down a storm particularly with the added Mexican Wave! A number of our guests have said it was the best ceremony that they had ever been to. We would highly recommend Sian to anyone considering a humanist ceremony and we are now friends for life! Keep up the good work!! Will & Amy XXXX

"We had no idea what a humanist wedding ceremony was until we spoke with Sian virtually in March 2021. We had just got engaged on Valentine’s Day and we wanted to get married quickly. Our dream wedding was to stand barefoot on a beach somewhere hot with the sound of the waves in the background. This seemed impossible with all the travel restrictions due to covid and the fact that civil ceremonies are not allowed on the beach in England & Wales. Then we met Sian…. Sian told us how we could have a humanist wedding ceremony anywhere and that we could get married on a beach. Perfect!
So we contacted the local council to have permission to get married on our favourite beach(North Beach in Tenby) 3 months later. Not only would a humanist wedding ceremony provide us with our perfect wedding venue, it would also allow us to have a heartfelt meaningful ceremony that was bespoke to our family. We wanted a ceremony that embraced our children and they were very much at the forefront. All our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and our beach wedding was ‘the best wedding ever’ Sian…you did an amazing job of writing such a heartfelt wonderful funny script. There were plenty of laughs and plenty of tears, a real rollercoaster of emotions. Thank you so much for being part of our special day. It was EPIC!!!" Much love, Rhian, Adam, Harri & Rhys x

"We loved our ceremony conducted by Sian! She worked closely with us in the weeks leading up to the wedding to get to know us and tailor the ceremony so that it was perfect. Our friends and family commented what a fun, emotional and 'different' ceremony it was and we would definitely recommend Sian! Diloch yn fawr, Em and Jon. x"

"We had the most amazing ceremony thanks to Siân and all her hard work. So many of our guest commented on how amazing it was! She spent so much time and effort getting to know us as a couple to tell our story exactly the way we wanted it. We laughed, we cried and had so much fun. We especially loved the synchronised Prosecco popping that Siân coordinated at the end of the ceremony! The whole process from start to finish was brilliant! We will miss working with you. Thanks for everything - it was perfect!" Amy & Matt xx

"Thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful wedding ceremony. You completely exceeded our expectations for the day and we loved every minute of it. We really appreciate the time and effort you put in to creating our ceremony and we know we will treasure these memories forever. All of our guests really enjoyed the day and we've had such lovely, genuine comments since. It's been really heart-warming to speak to our family and friends about it afterwards. Keep doing what you do! Love, Fiona and Will. x"

"I honestly don't know where to start. Sian is a ray of sunshine and is one of the most wonderful people I have met! When we decided to have a humanist wedding, we looked up a few different profiles and hers stuck with us so we decided to send her a message. That was honestly one of the best decisions we made for our wedding - if not THE best. We met with Sian in December 2018 after an initial Skype call to allow her to get to know us and the conversation flowed immediately! Sian is so easy to talk to and so lovely to be around it was hard to stop and we chatted for hours!
Once she had gleaned enough information about our relationship she set to work on our ceremony and I can't describe how wonderful it was. After reading the first draft the two of us were laughing and crying and feeling all sorts of wonderful emotions and we knew we'd chosen the perfect person to conduct our ceremony. The day before the ceremony, Sian came to the venue and we did a practice run of certain rituals that included others, just so everyone knew what they were doing, which really calmed everyone's nerves! On the day, Sian delivered the ceremony perfectly and everyone commented on what a wonderful celebrant she is! I honestly feel honoured to have had her conduct our ceremony and am delighted to know her!"

"We just wanted to email you and express how amazing we thought you were for our wedding ceremony. From the first point of contact with you through to becoming Mr and Mrs you have been absolutely wonderful. You have guided and supported us, made us laugh and cry, and given us great help and advice for our wedding (and indeed our future together). You put in so much work for us, we cannot thank you enough.
Our guests were so very complimentary about the service you put together, commenting that it was full of joy and love, which is exactly what we wanted. Many said it was the nicest wedding they'd been to.
Phil the photographer also said it was one of the best weddings he has covered! We would 100% recommend you as a celebrant for any occasion. And, if you are ever in the "quaint market town" of Chesham - or indeed just in Buckinghamshire - please do get in touch, we'd love to see you again. Wishing you all the best, Maddi & Steve. "

"Sian created the perfect ceremony for my husband and I. Her passion, creativity and commitment to making your personalised ceremony is evident in everything she does. From the moment you have your first meeting with Sian, to the day itself, you can trust that she is as invested in your special day as much as you are. Our family and friends were blown away by the personal touches she weaved into the ceremony and I am so glad we chose her to be our Celebrant. I cannot recommend her highly enough!" Sarah and Si. xx

"We were lucky enough to have Sian perform the ceremony at our wedding a few years ago and we were completely blown away with what a wonderful job she did. We wanted something quite informal and quirky. Sian managed to put together a ceremony that was not only that, but also very personal, touching and funny, and even with a few surprises thrown in! Sian really helped our wedding be unforgettable and we feel very grateful that she was part of our special day. Thank you Sian!" Rosy and Dave. x
"We are so glad we booked Siân to be the celebrant for our wedding; it was perfect. Siân was so friendly during the whole process, always keeping us in the loop and ready to answer any questions we might have had. Loads of guests commented on how 'us' the ceremony was which shows just how much Siân listened to us and worked with us to write the ceremony. I couldn't recommend Siân enough and she even bought us a thoughtful gift. A big DIOLCH from the new Mr and Mrs Jacob-Barclay". xxx
We just wanted to let you know how wonderful and amazing you helped make our wedding day - from beginning to end you were super thorough and made it wonderfully personable. You spoke with love and passion to us both, together and separately, and made sure that lines of communication were open with plans and ideas throughout the entire process... your innovative and very unique approach and ideas over our wedding day and things we could do filled us both with excitement, and on the day... oh my goodness, I have never heard such praise for an officiator, both our families and all our friends were blown away by your personal touch, stories and simply amazing service - it was simply the most engaging and perfect ceremony any couple could wish for. You involved everyone including our then10 month old and my late father... you made it simply magical... and we thank you - we, Bob, Rhi and Buddy thank you and we are coming your way for a vow renewal xx
"I cannot thank Sian enough for making our wedding ceremony better than I could ever of imagined, she made us feel completely at ease from the first contact ensuring we remained in control of our ceremony whilst guiding us to make the most of the day. She gained an insight into our relationship with each other and our children and was able to use that to make our ceremony unique, insightful, engaging and magical. Unlike myself my husband (it's really weird calling him that after 16years) isn't great at sharing his feelings openly Sian adapted and was able to draw them out making his vows better than I could of ever imagined. Sian you were amazing from start to finish and I am so glad that we chose you to be part of one of the best days of my whole life ❤ Alison and Philip. x"
"Sian is brilliant, would recommend again and again.. she couldn’t do more, our circumstances were difficult and she adapted in every way possible, then gave us the perfect ceremony!
Could not ask for better, and wouldn’t want anyone else to have done the ceremony!!
Thank you so much for everything you did and for making everything so personal and wonderful, you are the loveliest woman and we are so glad we stumbled across you! Rowan, Adam and the Tribe! X "
"We were so fortunate to have Sian conduct our ceremony back in Wales, after us getting married in Canada, earlier in the year. Sian is a dedicated professional and worked very hard to create a ceremony that best represented our relationship. Sian accommodated time differences and meetings very well, with patience and care. Thank you Sian for making our day fun-filled and sincere. Steve and Jemma❤️"
"Sian created the most beautiful ceremony for me and my husband. We laughed, cried and remembered the love we had for each other as she talked about our life together. Sian really is brilliant at her job and I couldn't recommend her enough. thank you once again xx" Mr and Mrs Hartnell. xx
