Testimonials

Saba and I found Brad to be exceptional. We met over Skype initially due to our being located overseas, then in person prior to the wedding. Even with this arrangement, Brad caught the essence of our requirements and story, and put together a ceremony that was beautiful. Everyone in attendance loved what was said, and was so complimentary to us of Brad after. Thank you for being a huge part of our day! We couldn’t have asked for more!

Alex Cunningham

Just to say a big THANK YOU for Saturday. We had several compliments about you and the service from our guests which was lovely to hear. It was absolutely what we were after and will certainly recommend you to others looking for a celebrant

Our wedding day was the best day of our life and a key part of this was the brilliant ceremony carried out by Brad. From a couple of meetings where we had informal chats about our background and the run up to the wedding, Brad created the perfect ceremony for us. It was personal, touching and emotional, with just the right amount of humour.

Many of our wedding guests commented on what an excellent job Brad did with the “perfect ceremony” and we would recommend him to anyone.

Paul and Ryan Murphy-Boardley

After having Brad as our celebrant at our wedding we would highly recommend his celebrant services. He has a nice mix of being confident yet friendly, professional yet sincere and he executed his role seamlessly.

We had a unique problem at our wedding. Half of the guests were French speaking, with the other half English speaking. We didn’t know how we were going to overcome this problem. Brad came up with a solution that he would learn French, in 4 months, so all of our guests would understand the most important part of our wedding, the ceremony. We were blown away by his offer and commitment to make our wedding as perfect as possible and he did a fantastic job.

Brad clearly loves what he does and it comes naturally to him. We would not hesitate to recommend Brad as a celebrant or speaker at any function.

Alex and I just wanted to say how utterly incredible and special you made our wedding day. You were amazing from start to finish.

Everyone has commented how much they loved the ceremony, how personal it was and how it fitted our personality completely. The stories you told and the warmth you shared when telling them made the whole ceremony so intimate and special.

We always knew it was going to be an emotional day and you were able to calm Alex and put him so at ease.
Because of you the most important part of our day went without a hitch, we laughed, we cried and above all else we shared our love.
We simply can’t thank you enough for your professionalism, kindness and for just being you.

We wouldn’t not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Julie and Alex McCracken

Brad recently conducted a naming ceremony for our baby son and all our guests commented on what a lovely service it was. I wouldn’t hesitate to get back in touch if we needed him again. He listened to what we wanted, wrote a perfect script and on the day he contributed a calm, relaxed authority to the proceedings. Brad is friendly, easy to work with, punctual, immaculately turned out and all material was agreed in a timely manner. And he’s just a really nice guy. Highly recommended.

We were married in St Marys Lighthouse, Whitley Bay in June 2014 and along with the registrars, who did the legal part of the ceremony, we asked Brad ‘The Kiwi Celebrant’ to be part of the service and give our wedding a more personal touch. Numbers were limited at the Lighthouse and we could only have 50 people attend the actual ceremony so it was intimate with only really close friends and family, but it really was perfect!!

Brad talked about how we met and how my husband proposed. He basically told our story with a touch of humour, he had everyone laughing and it made our day really special. All our guests said that they had an amazing day and we are so happy that we asked Brad to be part of it.

Thank you so much Brad! You’re a star and we would highly recommend you to anyone who wants to add an extra special touch to their celebration!!

My husband and I were married at Leeds town hall with close family this summer, but we knew that the ceremony we wanted to call ‘our wedding’ needed to be much more personal than this. This is why we hired Brad, and his did not let us down! He took the time to get to know our story, and wrote a script for the ceremony that was funny, sincere, and just what we wanted! So many of our guests commented on how the ceremony was their favourite part if the day and it was ours too. Brad did and amazing job and we would recommend him to anyone!

Alice Phillips, Leeds
