 “Planning a funeral is not an easy task.  My brother did not want a religious service, nor a large congregation.  Nicki was there to provide the perfect solution.  From our first conversation to the week after the service she was on hand with compassion, sensitivity and ideas to make the service go smoothly.  Having asked who would be attending the service she was able to greet people by name as they arrived which was appreciated by everyone.  The little touches made a huge difference.  The service itself flowed, with the right balance of humour, reflection and music all under the gentle control of Nicki. Planning a funeral is not an easy task, but my heartfelt thanks go out to Nicki for making it easier.” Kim Barter (Oxford)

“Very professional with a gentle air.” RD (London) 

“Nicki handled the process of planning and conducting our family-member’s funeral with enormous compassion and consideration throughout. She took time to really gather a full picture of the person, and so the service felt very personal and meaningful.” Phil Saul (Harwell) 

“I couldn’t think of a better person to be a celebrant. Nicki is so compassionate and wonderful with words.” Selma Mian Halsall (Cholsey)

Carol Bradshaw (Hampshire) “Nicki conducted my mother’s burial service with great thoughtfulness and care. She worked hard to get everything right and it was spot on.”
