Wedding Testimonials

We had a fabulous wedding day and thank you for being a part of it. The service was great and lots of friends and relatives commented that it was one of the most personal weddings they have ever been to. Nick & Michelle Arnside Chapel,
" Marriage joins two people who trust the love that they have found. It is a partnership in which each can grow and be their true selves, whilst sharing in the development of the other.

It is a public statement to all those around them of a very private sentiment - that they love each other and wish to spend the rest of their lives together. "

Nick and Michelle’s Wedding Ceremony

‘They enjoyed a special first holiday in a cottage in Devon in December 2007. It was just before Christmas and it was during this holiday that their love for each other grew and they discovered more and more that they liked many of the same things: walks in the countryside, pub lunches, cooking and drinking good wine in the evening. Not much has changed since then. Nick does a lot of the cooking and Michelle likes baking cakes and does most of the washing up!’

What made you want a humanist ceremony for your wedding ceremony?

We wanted a humanist ceremony as we aren’t religious in a formal sense but wanted a ceremony of some sorts and we like the aspects a humanist ceremony brings – the focus on the couple, their own vows but still the principle of celebrating our marriage.

What did your guests say about your ceremony?

We got so many comments about the day and almost everyone highlighted the ceremony – everyone found it enjoyable and touching. And the venue was great.

Any general comments about my service?

Other feedback is that we really enjoyed the initial meeting, very friendly. At the ceremony you were a very good host, well spoken and made it special. You gave good advice on the vows and we appreciated the flexibility around the wording in the ceremony. You were also very smiley on the day which instantly makes people happy.
