"We knew from the outset that we wanted our day to be meaningful and unique to us as a couple and were so happy that we found a celebrant like Richard to help us plan for this. He was engaged and supportive every step of the way, really putting the effort in to get to know us as a couple. This was certainly reflected in the beautiful service that he helped us put together. All our family/friends commented on how special our ceremony was and praised Richard for his warmth and good humour. We would highly recommend Richard to any couple seeking a celebrant to support them in creating a unique and meaningful ceremony."

"We couldn't have asked for someone better than Richard to conduct our ceremony. Initially we were a little wary of booking a celebrant but we needn't have been. He took great care to make our big day as special as possible, from speaking to him in the months prior to sorting out the finer details on the day itself. His delivery, attention to detail and enthusiasm were a sight to behold, leading many of our guests believe he was an old friend of ours! The ceremony itself was perfect, with people still commenting on it weeks after it took place. This is testament to the thought and care that Richard puts into each couples wishes, something we will both be forever thankful for. We would highly recommend Richard."

"We were both so pleased with our humanist wedding ceremony conducted by Richard at our wedding. He made such an effort to make the ceremony personal and unique to us from taking the time to get to know us, listening to our stories and working with the maid of honour, who performed a reading, to make sure the ceremony flowed beautifully and was very memorable. We received such lovely feedback from our guest, many of whom had never been to a humanist ceremony, who said how much it reflected who we are as a couple and completely suited the warm and relaxed atmosphere we wanted to create. Thank you so much Richard for being such an incredible part of our day, we could not recommend you enough!"

“Richard helped make our naming ceremony very special. Communication and attention to detail in the planning was outstanding and on the day itself he made everyone feel at ease and was even helping with putting up the decorations at one point! The delivery of the ceremony was perfect and the fact we had a happy, smiling and clapping one year old during it was testament to Richard’s warmness. All of our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was and how much they liked Richard. He mingled with our guests and truly embraced the day - we can’t recommend him highly enough!”

"I was totally unsure as to where to even begin with a Relationship Healing Ceremony. I hadn’t even heard of one before, I don’t think anyone had! All I knew was that I wanted to celebrate this step in my life and it was Richard who made all of that happen. Not only from the initial encouragement, but the thought he put into every single step and aspect of the ceremony. This wasn’t an off the shelf ceremony, no! It was so personal, so intimate, so special. I met with Richard several times as he made huge efforts to discuss with me face to face, over facetime and on the phone the details of putting the ceremony together. As the ceremony drew closer Richard would keep in touch and gave me helpful coping hints and tips and he prepared me for an emotional celebration. On the day of the ceremony Richard was there to help and reassure me, he set up all the ceremony area effortlessly and even did some lovely behind the scenes moments such as lighting incense and welcoming guests. The ceremony itself was something I will never forget. Richard was an outstanding professional, he held the entire room, everyone was intensely engaged with his powerful messages and delivery. The ceremony was smooth and flowed naturally. He made it truly unique and it was such a special moment. I have never known so many people at any ceremony, gush over what a fantastic job he did, and he deserves every bit of credit. I will be forever thankful and I could not recommend him highly enough."
