Dear Virginie,

We absolutely loved our wedding ceremony. You made it so special and unique. We are still in the zone and can’t really believe what just happened!

Everyone had an amazing time and loved it too.

Thank you again for everything, it was a pleasure creating the ceremony with you over the last months!

Good luck for the rest of the wedding season.

Best regards

We absolutely love Sophie. Everyone at the wedding said what a beautiful service she did. 

From the start Sophie was warm and friendly and put us at ease. Sophie has become a friend, and we will be in touch with her when we return to Cognac!

There is nothing we would change about the wonderful service we received from Unique or Sophie, we have been so happy from start to finish. 

Thank you again and kindest regards.

Magali officiated our bilingual (French/English) and non-denominational wedding ceremony. Our guests couldn’t stop telling us how much they loved the ceremony. She gave us a lot of great ideas and did an amazing job. We would highly recommend Unique Ceremonies!

Hi Magali

We can’t believe it’s been one week since our amazing day and Séverine played a huge part of this.

Straight from when she arrived she introduced herself to both of us and then she was interacting with our guests before our ceremony, which was a really nice touch.

The ceremony itself was so good, it was the right length, she told our story and how we feel about each other in such a beautiful way. The way she presented throughout was so natural and effortless, which I guess is down to her confidence and a testament to all the work she had put in beforehand. 

We were a little worried before the wedding about having our ceremony in both French and English, but we didn’t need to as Séverine captured our guests attention for a full hour and kept them entertained throughout. She even managed to improvise at some points and brought real humour at the right points in both languages.

She also provided invaluable help to our speakers.

Everyone of our guests that we spoke to after the ceremony were so impressed with Séverine, some even asked how long have we known her because she told our story so well they thought she was a family friend. 

Both our French and British guests commented that our ceremony was one of the most beautiful they have been to. 

We were so happy and feel so lucky that we had Séverine as part of our day.

To Séverine, thank you so much for making our day so special. We hope our paths cross again at some point in the future. Let us know if you are ever in the UK as we would love to catch up.

Hi Magali,

We are doing very good. The aftermath was tiring and a bit difficult. We truly had a dream wedding! We wanted to thank you for Friday for helping us set up and rehearse. Regarding our secular ceremony, it was perfect!! We loved your little jokes to recover from our emotions. The script was really superb and resembled us in every way.

We don’t see what you could have done differently.

Dear Magali,

We just need you to know that what you prepared will stay with us forever. It was ultimate sorcery, magical and perfect. We can’t believe what you managed!

It was perfect how you involved the guest speakers in the ceremony. It was by far the best part of the day for us!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Dear Magali,

We had an absolutely amazing day, it really was more than what I was hoping for. You were brilliant, we can’t thank her enough for all the help and advice she gave us (she has the patience of a saint) and of course not to forget her hard work in created such a happy, emotional and funny wedding ceremony for us.

We absolutely loved it and so did our guests, it was a ceremony none of us had experienced before. The whole service we have received from yourselves at Unique Ceremonies has been wonderful, there is not one thing can I think of that I wish was done differently. Steve and I cannot thank you enough.

Kindest Regards

Dear Magali,

Virginie without question was nothing short of exceptional – she created the most intimate, unique, happy and deeply meaningful ceremonies that without doubt was my favourite moment of the whole day. We are blessed to have met her and eternally thankful and grateful to have an experience led by Virginie. We shall be keeping in touch for sure to renew our vows and to continue a great friendship. Service was 20/10!!! 

Thank you so much! Just simply so wonderful.

We only have great praise for Virginie – she was fabulous.

The pre-wedding contact and support was detailed and informative and she was very accommodating to any changes we wanted to make.

She was so lovely and warm when we met her before the ceremony. 

The actual ceremony went smoothly and Virginie gave us just the right amount of direction.  

Following the ceremony we liked that she left the vows and documentation for us along with the thank you card and gifts and very nice touch.

Also we especially liked that she came to say goodbye and have some photos too 🙂

We can’t think of any improvement that may be needed. Virginie was such a star and we wish you all the best for the future of your business. 

Thank again for everything and to Virginie for making our day so special. 

Best wishes

Richard was absolutely perfect!

We both enjoyed working with him and found him to be very professional and a lot of fun too.

The ceremony was perfect and that is largely due to Richard.

Magali, please thank him for us.

We both couldn’t have been happier with the ceremony you performed for us. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves and there were reports of a few “manly teardrops” in the audience ?

I can’t believe you used my analogy of a turtle!  ? That still brings a smile to my face. 

We had a great time travelling in France after the wedding, and we were quite sad when we had to come back to Southampton….

It was a pleasure planning our wedding with you and it makes us both very happy to know that you will continue your excellent work with more couples in the future. 

Please stay in touch and all the best for the rest of the wedding season.

Dear Magali,

On behalf of myself and Claire, I would like to thank you so much for organising and performing such a beautiful wedding ceremony for both us and all our guests.

Words can’t explain how amazing everything was. We thought the ceremony was the icing on an unforgettable weekend. Thank you so much for the effort you put into to writing such a personal speech.

Our guests haven’t stopped telling us how amazing they thought you and the ceremony was.

Thank you as well for joining us on the Friday night. It was great to get to know you a little better before the ceremony and great for you to meet all our friends and family.

Kind Regards

Hi Virginie,

Thanks so much for being the most amazing celebrant!

So many of our guests commented on how good you were, and how personal our ceremony was.

We hope to see you again one day- please let me know if you would like me to write you a recommendation on a website.

With all best wishes

Hi Magali

The ceremony & the whole day was perfect, couldn’t have done it any better!

So many people said to me that it was the most amazing ceremony because of how personal & unique to us. 

Thank you so much for making it so special. 


Were you happy with it?

Very happy – honestly couldn’t have been better. All guests either had a big smile on them or had tears running down their faces. 

What did you particularly like about it?

The personal touch to the ceremony – it truly is unique. Also, We loved the secret texts from our loved ones. Very nice touch to a ceremony.

What in your opinion should I improve?

Honestly no. It was perfect

Dear Magali,

Working with you was an utter pleasure, the narrative about our lives together was beautifully constructed with fantastic communication both via email/Skype and the questionnaire. We felt that a religious ceremony truly wasn’t aligned with our values and Unique Ceremonies really provided a personal yet spiritual experience as it celebrated our lives and all the lives of those who have influenced and left lasting imprints on us.

Thank you thank you thank you! It was a perfect day made ever more perfect with your words and ceremony.

Thank you again, I’m going to head to Unique Ceremonies facebook page now and keep in touch

All the best Magali, and thank you again.

Dear Magali,

We were so pleased with the ceremony and really enjoyed working with you both to bring to life our vision for it.

We like that we were asked to fill out questionnaires beforehand so you could get to know more about us, our families and why marriage was important to us. We were really pleased that this all came through in the ceremony.

It was also wonderful that you both were available to meet us when we were in France to talk through the ceremony in more detail including wet weather plans and other aspects that we thought went above and beyond.

The rehearsal was also extremely helpful and ensured that everything on the day went smoothly. The pack you provided with the certificate and the details of our ceremony was also an unexpected extra that will be a cherished memory.

In addition to being extremely professional you were both friendly and a pleasure to work with so we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

A Celebrant, A Friend and an amazing support during a crazy and uncertain experience, when planning our wedding we knew instantly that we wanted to use Unique Ceremonies, Magali’s thoroughness and friendly and calm approach was a aesthetic we knew we wanted on our wedding day, throughout the process Magali became a huge support to us particularly when trying to source reputable suppliers and she was always on hand with a speedy reply for any queries we had, she was also very patient and understanding when it came to us getting information back to her even when it came to us only sending our vows through less than a week before the wedding.

Magali goes above and beyond with every aspect which gave us a amazing wedding ceremony with lots of little surprises which kept it fresh and exciting for all involved, Magali’s calming influence also took away quite a lot of stress on the wedding day we found it very infectious and could not help feeling at ease too even on a day people find extremely stressful, and as she is such a pro at what she does everything went to plan with nothing but smiles and a few tears.

Thank you so much Magali for helping us to make our dream wedding a reality it was more perfect than we could ever have hoped for and we will be eternally grateful.

Dear Magali,

Thanks so much again for the fantastic ceremony, especially in difficult circumstances.

All our guests were blown away by the approach and thought you were great.

The slip of the tongue was the icing on the cake for the Brits 🙂

Dear Magali & Richard, 

Many many thanks to you and Richard for our ceremony. We both thought it was lovely, and that it was just right in terms of the tone we were hoping for – relaxed/not too formal, and it was great that it was personalised.

Some of our guests thought Richard must have been someone we knew given the way he spoke about us, and many commented on how nice they thought the ceremony was.

The questionnaires we had to fill in were certainly long, but worth it for the tailored words we had as a result!

Dear Magali,

We are very happy to hear from you…and yes, we are doing very well:-) We had a wonderful day and Virginie did a great job.

She used our given information in a very thoughtful and also humorously way and everyone was touched by her charismatic and friendly nature, especially under the aspect that many of our guests didn´t really know what to expect from a free ceremony.

So we were very pleased with Virginie’s service… thank you!

Dear Magali.

We were absolutely amazed by your excellent services. We really enjoyed the ceremony, and we think Virginie managed to conduct the ceremony in our spirit: classy, but yet informal, relaxed and with a sense of humor.

We particularly appreciated the planning process. Virginie and you were so organized, in control, took initiative and so engaged to make our day special. She had always the time to answer our questions, and she did it thoroughly. Also, that you were able to assist in decoration of the place where the ceremony took place, were highly appreciated. The organization in advance, and the coordination on the actual day was great, so that we could focus on other things, and we were always 100 % positive that we were in the best hands.

We were both so amazed of her dedication and sincerity. You made us feel unique and special as a bridal couple. Thank you.

We are happy to write a testimonial about you. Please instruct where to post it/ send it.

Thank you so much for making our day special. We are so grateful.
