"Thank you to Cynthia and Katherine for marrying us on Saturday.

We felt in the safest hands and our families both made a point of saying how lovely the service was."

T & K - January 2024

"We had our civil partnership ceremony yesterday, the registrars were Marcia and Sam.

I have to tell you that we all had the most wonderful time, we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed. Given we had just met these lovely women, I felt we were amongst friends from the start.

Thank you so much for making our day even more special due to your warmth and kindness."

"Our deep gratitude and thanks to Belgin and Dee, for their masterly conducting of our wedding ceremony a few weeks ago.

It was a true joy to work with them both, and be taken under their professional wing and be guided so lovingly and lightly.

Special thanks to Belgin for how she engaged my parents and my eight year old niece - our "Best Person" - pre, during and post ceremony. It was a beautiful day and both Belgin and Dee will hold a very dear place in our hearts for their roles in it."

So many of our guests specifically commented on the warmth and delivery of the ceremony. We felt very taken care of."

S & L - November 2022

"I would like to thank the registrars from our ceremony last Friday. They were so lovely, warm and really held the seriousness of marriage with a lightness of touch.

I am particularly grateful as my husband is on the autism spectrum and can find unknown situations challenging.

I couldn't be happier with how the ceremony experience unfolded."

P & D - October 2022

"Thank you for a lovely ceremony, made all the lovelier for your warmth and humour."

L & M - September 2022

"My partner and I just wanted to send warmest thanks and appreciation for the beautiful and sensitive way that both Marcia and Graeme conducted our Civil Partnership Ceremony at Trinity House. In fact, the whole process, even the admin, has been a joy right from the start with Islington and London City Register Office.

So many people hope for a perfect day when they commit to each other, whether by marriage or civil partnership. We can only say that, afterwards, that is how we felt about our ceremony. In all honesty, we don't think we could have been looked after better. We both have an abiding memory of being held in really good, caring, steady good hands at such a vital moment for both of us. The result was to give us the ceremony we'd planned and hoped for and will never forget."

M & D - May 2022

"Thank you for the organisation of our marriage ceremony.

It has been a wonderful experience from the registration, to the preparation and the ceremony itself. Everyone has been so helpful and friendly on this important day for us.

We could not have wished for a better experience - thank you so much!"

L & I - August 2022

"We had a civil partnership at the Town Hall and it was great! I just wanted to say thank you to all involved at the Town Hall.

The registrars on the day and at our pre-partnership meeting a few months ago were all lovely and calm, professional and supportive and fun in a way I found hugely reassuring and very much appreciated.

Thank you so much for making our big event so very enjoyable and memorable."
