a perfect personal day...
I cannot recommend Rob and Oaktree Ceremonies enough.
Rob married us this past August, we didn’t want traditional vows or a traditional service and Rob went all out for us, it was amazing. Everyone was laughing and we will never forget a single second. The personal element that Rob put into our service was second to none, it was like he had known us both for years. Made our day all the more perfect, even if the bride was an hour late"
what a fantastic day...
My nerves were getting the better of me, but Rob really helped and calmed me down.
The personal touch and the framed certificate are beautiful and is hanging on the wall as a reminder of what a great day we had thanks to Rob."
Rob is a master at his craft and it was simply poetry. The support Rob gave us is just beyond words. We cannot thank him enough for helping us through and giving Dad the perfect send off.
I've never heard so many people commenting about a service at a funeral before. What a beautiful service it was, how they couldn't believe they had only been in there for such a short time as it felt relaxed and un-rushed. That was all down to Rob and Oaktree Ceremonies. Our family will be forever grateful for the care and attention."
We chose Rob Head to officiate at the funeral of a young family member. From the start, he put everyone at ease, and made sure he had all the detail.
On the day, Rob greeted us and immediately put us at ease, and the service was flawless from start to finish, and brilliantly timed. Best of all was Rob's delivery. Clear, empathetic, caring and really painted a picture for everyone there. Rob's personal care for the family was also really clear to see.
If you are looking for a celebrant who really cares, takes time, and delivers to absolute perfection on the day, look no further. I'd 100% recommend Rob to anyone."
a beautiful celebration of life
Brilliant, perfect, fantastic, the list could go on. All comments from our family & friends about you, and it goes double from us. You made a very sad day into a perfect celebration of mums life. Thank you once again."
a life so real...
Thank you for making my dad's life seem so real yesterday. The grandchildren understood their granddad like they had never done before. Nobody could have done it better.

lovely keepsakes and memories
I honestly cannot describe how wonderful Rob from oak tree ceremonies is as a celebrant. From the first contact we had he blew us away with his love and commitment to his craft. Throughout the planning stage he was a fantastic guide and gave many wonderful titbits of advice and assistance to shape our ceremony perfectly. When it came to the actual wedding day he coached everyone involved in the ceremony of their role and ensured that they felt ready to participate. Every single guest has since raved about how wonderful, unique and beautiful the ceremony was and how incredible Rob did at putting it all together. The lovely keepsakes of the certificate, unity candles and vow books are such a brilliant touch. Thank you Rob".
such a pleasure
I would just like to thank you so much for your professional approach at my Dads funeral. It was such a pleasure to have met you and we all felt that without you the day just wouldn’t of been the same. My Dad would of been proud if he had of met you and I can’t thank you enough Rob."
I just wanted to say thank you so much for your Eulogy for My Dad, you did him so proud. Fabulous words which summed him up beautifully. My Brother watching in Sweden also said how you had captured him and his funny ways in your script."
Thank you so much for the interment you carried out today, you put everyone at ease with your beautiful wording and the caring manner you showed throughout. Everything was just perfect, and the way you prepared your copy for the ceremony and presented it to the family was amazing -perfect touch!. We thank you very much for today and wish you all the best for the future."
I am writing on behalf of all the family and friends who attended M`s funeral yesterday.
They were so impressed with the way you conducted the Service. It was perfect for M – just the right mix of dignity, solemnity and humour.
Thank you Paul and all best wishes."
such kind words...
We would like to say a big thank you for the lovely Service you did for D.
You made our saying goodbye much better to accept with all your kind words and ways, before and on the day.
Thanks again from us all."
I just wanted to say another many, many thanks for all your help and support before and during the funeral of my father yesterday.
German, like a few other European languages, has a word to describe you and the way you are, and that is 'sympathisch'. It doesn't really mean sympathetic, but brings in the idea of someone who is very pleasant, someone you can get along with immediately and someone you feel at ease with. So, the word describes you exactly. The way you organised and held the ceremony was fantastic and a number of people said after the funeral what a lovely job you had done."
a celebration of life
I just wanted to say on behalf of our mum and all the family, how pleased and thankful we all are for the beautiful service yesterday. We all felt it went really well and you portrayed the true life and spirit of our mum for all to appreciate and remember. Funerals are always a sad occasion, but we will all remember this as being a celebration of mum's life - thank you!"
thoughtful and heartfelt
Just a short note to send our thanks for the beautiful service you put together yesterday. It really was thoughtful and heartfelt.
Many people have said to me how lovely it was and particularly how well you read G’s eulogy, which must be a difficult art to perfect.
a beautiful keepsake
Thank you so much for sending me the order of service for P's funeral last Monday. It was beautifully packaged and I thought the forget me not seeds were a lovely idea. I will keep it safe as a keepsake to remind me of a special friend.."
The service that you provided was exceptional, from the initial contact, all your advice and guidance, and then meeting with you in person prior to the funeral.
Your attention to detail gave me such confidence and reassurance that I was able to simply be present at the funeral, without having to worry or think about anything else.
Thank you for your wonderful words, it was a very moving and fitting way to say goodbye, and I very much appreciate what you did."
a sense of completeness
Just a quick message to say how much we all appreciated the service yesterday, and all the effort you put into the words to express what we ourselves find so difficult to express. You turned a difficult day into a beautiful way to send our mum onto the next part of her journey. Our cousin who was there took us back to her house, where Kate was born in Wrabness. So, between your words about her life and that, we had a sense of completeness about our mums life and we can't thank you enough for that."
