Dear Robin, We wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding ceremony last month. It all passed in such a whirl I am sure I forgot to shake your hand and thank you on the day. You were so kind - coming early to the middle of nowhere for our rehearsal at such an early hour and then taking the rehearsal with patience and understanding as I was somewhat bridezilla-like I recall! And then the ceremony itself was just great. You delivered something that was solemn yet sentimental, and just that little bit different, exactly as we had hoped. Many of our guests commented on it, saying how lovely it was, and how very personal. I felt like I was floating about 10 feet in the air and, with the exception of one or two moments which I remember with significant clarity, it’s a bit of a blur so I am really looking forward to the recording coming through!

Dear Robin,

Thank you so much for conducting our wedding last month. We and our guests had the loveliest day.

Your contribution in keeping us relaxed with your good humour and your professional and solemn delivery was perfect. Your guidance and communication before the day allowed us to plan our ceremony exactly how we wanted it.

We will most definitely recommend you as a wedding celebrant to anyone who is considering a celebrant wedding.

Best wishes

Dear Robin

Thank you so much for all your work for my father's funeral on Thursday, it was all that I had hoped it would be, and you managed to make the whole event about him.

Many people said how moving they found it and we were all very pleased with the way everything went.

I was also pleased that it was also not just about sadness and loss

One of my fathers frends said it was the best funeral she had ever attended.

Den would have loved that.

Many thanks G

 

 


“Robin did a terrific job as the celebrant at our wedding renewal ceremony. He was helpful in all aspects of the planning and was a pleasure to work with. On the day he kept us calm, kept a lovely balance of fun and solemnity and was engaging with all of our guests. I would highly recommend Robin’s services”. Julie and Jason, Canada.

 

 

Thank you for the excellent way that you conducted the service for Peter today. His family were very grateful, and I believe that everyone appreciated the dignity, compassion and the gentle touches of humour. It was a genuinely moving event, and we were very impressed by the forethought and attention to detail that you showed in the short time available for preparation.

Regards, Gareth

 

 

“We were so lucky to have been recommended Robin as our celebrant for my husband’s funeral. I did not even know what a celebrant was when we started the process, but with gentle patience, genuine empathy, and humour, Robin was able to ensure that Ian had a service that was truly reflective of his life and our wishes. Nothing was prescribed, but a suggested structure and potential examples were thoughtfully offered. Robin’s delivery on the day was perfect, and provided a reassuring anchor to proceedings. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Thank you, Robin.”

 

 

Dear Robin,

Just thought I'd pass on the families thanks to you for the lovely service you conducted for Harry yesterday. They were very pleased with how you dealt with them and conducted the service. More than one mourner commented on what a lovely man you were. My colleague Andrew (Funeral Director) also had very nice things to say about you. Andrew is also a Baptist Minister and has his own beliefs and opinions on civil ceremonies, however he commented that you were by far the most sincere, genuine and comforting civil celebrant he had ever come across.

I have no doubt in my mind all these people are
correct after meeting you at the funeral you did for us last year. It has been a pleasure working with you, and I am sure to be offering your services throughout the coming years.

Kind regards

Dear Robin,

We are so pleased that you were there with us to guide us through Dad's special celebration of his life.

Your kind and caring professionalism got us through a very tough day, we could not have asked for a better service for Dad and we know that he would have approved of it all.

Even though you did not know Bob you conveyed a strong sense of kinship by the choosing of that great poem and your sense of occasion.

Thank you Robin and we wish you the very best with your chosen career and if Dad's service is an indication of your skill we know that you will do extremely well.

Best wishes

Meg, Mick, David D

 

Dear Robin,

Thank you so much for the wonderfully sensitive help and advice you gave while making arrangements for my father's funeral and the huge amount of trouble you took gathering information for the eulogy.

All the family and many of the people who attended the funeral felt you struck exactly the right balance, and on occasions made me smile as you recounted parts of my dad's life

Best wishes

As my father was neither religious or non-religious we are indebted to Murrell Cork for suggesting Robin Watson, a Civil Celebrant to conduct the ceremony; not only was Robin sensitive with all his questions and advice but he took immense trouble gathering information for the eulogy.

All the family and many of the people attending the funeral thought he struck exactly the right balance both spiritually and in every other way making a difficult day much more bearable.

As a non-Christian I wondered what I should do for my own burial as neither a religious or a humanist ceremony seemed to be what I wanted, after speaking to Robin for only a short while I knew that I will engage a Civil Celebrant to conduct my funeral and write an eulogy when the time comes, and that person will be Robin if it is at all possible.

Hi Robin

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the lovly service you conducted for Mum last Wednesday.

Everyone there, though there was only a few of us, were all of the same opinion that you were very good and the whole service though a sad occassion was a fitting t ribute to Mum and thoughtfully presented.

I can only say that I hope you will continue in this vocation for a VERY LONG time so I can rely on a nice send off for Dad, as I know he was very pleased with the way you conducted the service and rang you that night to thank you.

And as for all those there (including ourselves) who had never heard of a Civil Celebrant, I think I can safely say a few more people will be choosing that option in the future thanks to you, so you may need to purchase a larger diary.

Many thanks once again.

Love

J & J C

 

Dear Robin

Thank you so much for officiating on Friday. The way you conducted the service was excellent and we will certainly recommend you as well as Ivan to anyone who asks. It all went just as we had planned, right down to the laughter at the end and everyone said how different and moving it was.

Thanks again, Pam and family

Dear Robin,
Both Sue and I thought that your service was very well presented, and we are very grateful to you. The eulogy was not only very well delivered by you, but it also managed to focus on the key themes of John’s later life without losing the overall biographical detail. Given the audience that we had, I think that it was spot on.

Good luck for the future. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you, in terms of references or the likes.

Hello Robin,
On behalf of my family, I'd like to thank you for the lovely way you spoke at my father's funeral yesterday.

You were very professional in your approach and the poem you suggested was perfect for him. It was a pleasure to deal with you.
Everything went smoothly and I feel that Dad would have been happy with the service. I will be recommending your services in the future.

Dear Robin,
May I take this moment to thank you for the service that you provided for our father Bill. My mother , brother and sisters were all grateful for your sensitive and gracious delivery of the eulogy and your sensitive support in arranging the service. Once again many thanks from us all.
