Stephen officiated our wedding ceremony in September 2014 and he was a delight to work with! Stephen was warm, funny, very friendly and helpful from his first email through to his lovely follow-ups since our wedding. He made us feel at ease and guided us along the way with friendly reminders, and was very helpful when we were panicking about some misplaced documents!
Stephen made an effort to get to know us and even our friends, and wrote a wonderful ceremony incorporating elements of our personality and quotes from friends. He was happy to tailor the ceremony to our personal style and was willing to make things as formal or as casual as we wanted, and made sure we were happy with the final content of the ceremony. We decided not to have a rehearsal, but on the day of the ceremony he checked on us separately and talked us through the steps. He was so reassuring and calming and everything went flawlessly!
During the ceremony he spoke with so much warmth and friendliness and at no point did he feel intrusive. He was also clear and articulate in his delivery, which I think reflects his background in news broadcasting. He really made sure the event was about us and we received so many compliments from our guests about what a wonderful celebrant he was! I would highly recommend Stephen Lee to anyone looking for a reliable, friendly and cheerful celebrant. I would describe him as the type of person you’d love to share a long chat with over a glass of wine – that’s how approachable he is! Stephen clearly loves what he does and you won’t be disappointed with his efforts!
