It was a beautiful service for Mandy, the way you told a story about her life was like you knew her yourself. Very touching  (Shery-Ann in Portsmouth)

We canโ€™t recommend Eddie highly enough. My mum sadly passed away at the end of last year. When it came to organising the funeral and deciding on what to say Eddie made the whole process stress-free, meaning that me and my family could deal with our grief without having to worry about that too much. Nothing was too much of a problem for Eddie when we wanted to make changes to the eulogy. He even offered to help my daughter write her tribute for her Nan - something she was very nervous about as she had never done it before. Eddie sat with our family for hours listening to various random stories about my mum and somehow managed to pull it altogether into a lovely tribute that she would have been proud of. Thank you Eddie


Julia - Hampshire

Thank you very much, Eddie, from myself and all my family for the professionalism and great planning you demonstrated when conducting my grandmother's funeral ceremony. Thank you also for the wonderful folder you presented afterwards, which contained the order of service. I would recommend you to anyone needing a celebrant for any occasion.

Friends thoughts and wishes continue and today I'm blown away.

Had a message last night from my mate Edward Slater. He wanted to meet me today as he had 'something for me'. Intriguing.

So today, I met him at the glamourous location that is Tesco in Chi, for him to present me with this... a poem he has written for Lady ๐Ÿ’•โค

Eddie's a celebrant, so has used his natural talent (& empathy) to write this poem as well as producing a 'Celebration of Lady's Life' "Booklet" (what's the official name?) - like you get at a funeral.

It means so much Ed. Its made both Dad & I cry but we love it. THANK YOU man..๐Ÿ˜Š

I honestly don't know what else to say. Its a lovely thing to do..๐Ÿ’•

You listened, advised and gave our son and family an exceptional service. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and thoroughly recommended to everyone to meet you and use your exceptional expertise.

Many, many thanks.

Thankyou so very much for the wonderful service you conducted at our brothers funeral. There are no words to say how it meant to my family and I.

Highly recommended xx Thank you Eddie xx

Mandy - West Sussex

We asked Eddie to act as Celebrant at our mothers funeral and we are so glad we did. The service had a mix of sadness and humour. Eddie was amazing from the first contact through to the service. Everyone commented on how good Eddie was and I cannot recommend ES Invites & Occasions highly enough. Thank you Eddie for really helping us all on this sad day.

Thank you to dear Eddie for conducting our funeral service today. Truly professional from start to finish. Knowing you as a good friend and celebrant is an honour.


Cheryl - Hampshire

Eddie was totally amazing..... He was very professional and really supportive when we needed it most. He has a great sense of humour and compassionate in what he does and really does care if he has provided the service that we wanted. He took a lot of time to ensure all the details were correct and even gave us a memory book at the end which was very thoughtful and totally unexpected so glad we got to meet him and would recommend 100%. Thank you eddie

Hi Eddie


I wanted to pass on thanks from myself, my brother and my mum for your help with the funeral, and for delivering the service. I'd also like to thank you from all of us for the folders, it's very thoughtful of you to have made them up. I'm not sure all the cards will fit in my mums folder, she's had so many, which is a testament to what an amazing person my father was and how much everyone though of him.


Thanks again, best wishes
