from being a registrar...

just a few of the many thank you notes
Dear Glenda,

I do not think we ever wrote to say how much we appreciated the very personal feel you gave to our sons Richard’s wedding.

It really was a beautiful civil ceremony made memorable  quite simply by the way you conducted it.You gave all those words those lovely words so much meaning and you really made us feel it was the first time you had married anyone. It was that personal!

It would have been easy to just rattle off the words but you moved most of your congregation to tears, including my husband and me!

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job-we hung on every word and loved every minute of it.

With love

Penella and Peter


Hello Glenda

What can I say, the wedding you conducted was out of this world. Your attention to detail was amazing. So thank you.

I love the fact the ceremony was extremely relaxed and that it really meant something to everyone including us.

We are looking forward to the future and a happy life together. And we cant thank you enough for our beautiful ceremony and how personalised it was made. I will certainly be writing tom the registration office with a very encouraging letter.

Thanks again and enjoy many more weddings to come.

Chloe and Chris  xx


Dear Glenda

A big thank you from us for making our ceremony so special, relaxed and memorable-as well as fun! Everyone reported that they found it very moving and will always remember it. Our day was so wonderful made special by YOU. Thank YOU

Dear Glenda

A belated – but nonetheless truly heartfelt – ‘thank you’ to you for the incredibly beautiful wedding ceremony that you conducted for us at Rye Town Hall at 4pm on Saturday, 3 December 2011.

The amount of time you took to speak to us before the wedding, asking us about our preferences and making excellent suggestions as to what we might include was so appreciated.

The way in which you helped us to ensure that Kerry’s children had a significant role to play during the ceremony and the beautiful poem you suggested for the closing moments made it all so very special.

The ceremony itself was just beautiful; so many of our guests commented on how beautiful, emotional, meaningful, moving, informal, fun and magical it was.  Some said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.

So much of this was due to the warmth, understanding, creativity and just the right level of formality provided by you, Glenda.

You did everything to make it uniquely special for us and, given the number of wedding ceremonies that you must conduct, the fact that you made ours feel so unique for us is a rare and special talent indeed.

We would very much appreciate it if you would send a copy of this letter of thanks to whoever supervises the Hastings/Rye Registrars as we would also like them to know what a spectacular job you did and how grateful we are to you.

We will never forget our wedding day and the very important part that you played in making it so perfect for us – thank you.

Wishing you continued success, prosperity and happiness in 2012,

Yours sincerely

Kerry & Alex Lester
