What others say

The best thing we did for our wedding was to have Niki as our celebrant. You will not meet a warmer, happy and more understanding person than Niki. We told Niki the kind of reading we wanted to steer clear of and left the rest to her. When Niki read us our first draft both my partner and I were extremely emotional because of how beautiful it was.

On the day, Niki was incredible, she involved all the guests into our ceremony and everyone commented on how amazing it felt to be a part of that rather than just witnessing it. Throughout the whole process Niki was patient, understanding, calm and always on hand to tweak if needed. You will genuinely never meet a nicer person and that is why she is brilliant at what she does!

Thank you for everything you did for us, Niki. I heard good reports from the attendees, I appreciate that you talked to them before I came and what you wrote for Mum, and your delivery of those words. And your warmth. The music quality was really good too. My friends commented it was a wonderful experience, sad yet uplifting, something they'd like for themselves.

You can use the photos of the casket if you wish. I hope more people will be inspired to hold funerals that are personal, meaningful and eco-friendly. I appreciate not everyone would feel able to do what I did but if it was more widely known that it is possible to do it, more may wish to do so.

Again, my thanks for everything you did and said.

Eco-friendly funeral

Thank you for all the support and assistance that you recently gave me and my family in planning and preparing for my mother’s funeral. Everything you did was handled with such compassion and calm professionalism and for that my family and I are eternally grateful. The service was fantastic – one Mum would have been proud of – and a large part of that was down to the wonderful eulogy that you had crafted. You took the time to really listen to our stories about our Mum and understood what she was like and the end result was a fabulous eulogy that really captured the essence of the person she was and reflected the deep feelings that my sisters and I had for her.

We have had so many comments about the funeral and in particular the eulogy and have taken great comfort from that. Thank you for caring and doing such a wonderful job at such a difficult time for us.

Being with Niki is like being held in a big hug. She is the most genuinely warm and caring person you could wish to meet.

Whether you want Niki to help you celebrate your happiest times or support you through your most difficult, she will be there to laugh or cry with you, whatever you need. She is also incredibly funny and an all round amazing person.

Thank you Niki for being such an inspiration … You have lovely warmth about you and a lovely gentle approach, but what really shone out was your empathy and your lovely sense of humour. You entered into every aspect with full commitment and a genuine likeability - where your interaction with everyone clearly demonstrated an added dimension to your skills … You have amazing skills and qualities which compliment this role so well. Amazing!

It has been an absolute pleasure …

Niki you were absolutely amazing. Your ceremony was beautiful, moving, emotional and so heartfelt. Particularly the references to the *****. Everybody remarked how beautiful that was. Fabulous!  We will never be able to thank you enough. It would not have been the same without you.

I would recommend you to anyone. You really did make it very special and it felt so personal. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Celebrant Niki Tomkinson

Having Niki was like having a close friend conducting proceedings. She was warm, considerate and added to the joy of our wedding day. She is committed to providing the best possible service to suit you and dealt sensitively and professionally with a very nervous bride and groom on the day.

Her awesome character and warm delivery were very well suited to our style of ceremony and she made everyone in the room feel welcome and uplifted.

I can say with absolute certainty that I would not have wanted anyone besides Niki to conduct our wedding ceremony. From when we first met Niki we were struck by her warmth, professionalism and ability to translate our specific requests into a fantastic ceremony.

The planning meetings that we had with Niki were productive and thorough but were also like meeting with an old friend! Niki puts you at ease and makes the process enjoyable. Niki has a natural ability to bring to life anything that she takes on. She put a huge amount of work into every detail of the ceremony, and I was always 100% certain that it would be nothing short of perfect.

Niki has tremendous stage presence and her delivery of the ceremony was brilliant – we absolutely loved it! Thank you so much Niki xoxo
