I want to thank you for the fitting tribute you did for Ken, it was perfect.
When i lost my grandad in october, the funeral directors put me in touch with steve as i didn’t want a religious service for him. i sat and chatted with steve about what i wanted for my grandads final celebration of his life and he listened to everything, made suggestions to how he thought things would work better and on the day of the funeral everything fit into place and it was a beautiful service. he conducted the service with the upmost respect for my grandad and spoke about things that my grandad would be remembered for. steve you are amazing at what you do, from the bottom of my heart - thankyou. you took a lot of pressure off my shoulders and made me feel at ease and for that i’ll be forever grateful.
When the funeral Director suggested using a celebrant to lead our dad's funeral service, we were a little unsure. We didn't know what a celebrant was. Dad wasn't religious, but he wasn't against religion either. He used to be an altar boy when he was a lad. We never imagined how unique and powerful a funeral service could be, until we met Steve. What a man!
Steve led us stage by stage through a very difficult process, put at ease and delivered, what can only be described, as a work of art. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, said that they had never been to a funeral like it - in a good way that is! Many have said that they would like to have a service like that when their time comes.
I will never be able to thank Steve enough for what he did for us. He introduced us to a whole new way of celebrating a life and living with grief. A truly remarkable service from start to finish. I would highly recommend him and reassure those who are hesitant, use a celebrant!

After being involved with a funeral that Steve coordinated back in July, I was in no doubt that I would use him again when needed. Sadly, my grandfather passed and Steve was on hand to help not only with the coordination of the ceremony but to help me with my own feelings towards the event.
He is kind, considerate, organised and thoughtful.
Thank you Steve and Amy your PA.
We want to thank Steve so much for his support. He has been very gentle and unassuming and has given us lots of space to think about our options. We felt like he understood our pain and that meant such a lot to us. The service was a very apt celebration of our son's short life. In life he was so vibrant and full of life and Steve's service reflected this imaginatively. There was such a powerful presence during the service, which was hard to explain.
Steve is a very gifted human being. We are so grateful to the funeral home for introducing us to him.

At such a difficult time, Steve showed empathy and understanding, he listened, clearly understood who my brother was. Steve took away the pressure and produced a wonderful Order of Service, projected screen and video for during the service, he spoke with knowledge, care and understanding using words that supported our grief. All including those who were unable to join us due to numbers felt his personal embrace of our loss but had a story of life to tell. A great tribute to my brother.
A huge thank you Steve. My family will remember well the Service you held in celebrating the life of Bill.

Steve organised and led the funeral service for our dear late brother on Monday. We have struggled to find the right words to express our gratitude to him for the beautiful, funny and thought-provoking service that it was. It was to such an exceptional standard.
We remember Steve saying something at our first meeting with him which has struck a chord with us! "We can do simple if you like...but let's do simple with quality!" Steve gave us exactly that, quality and professionalism, and we would not hesitate to highly recommend him.

Mmy family and I would like to express sincere thanks for the tribute you made to my husband John on the 6th October 2020. You managed to get the very essence of a much loved and respected gentleman.
As you can imagine he has left a great void in our lives. I look forward to receiving the recording of his service, as you can imagine I cannot recall all of it and would love to hear and see it again.
Once again THANK YOU so much.
Linda and family.
