The Heart and Soul of Celebrancy is an excellent publication by a very experienced and professional celebrant. Sally has compiled a book which any practising celebrant, member of the public and intending celebrant should have in their libraries as a reference. Its content covers a wide range of topics for all celebrants, is an easy read and incorporates the wide ranging experience and empathy of a committed professional celebrant. I recommend Sally's book as a must for all those interested in celebrancy as it includes all the professional aspects of being a celebrant and congratulate her on the lively publication.
