The BEST officiant ever!
We had Alan officiate our wedding last weekend (10/12/19) and our ceremony was absolutely perfect. We actually booked Alan well in advance (over a year in advance in fact) because I just loved him that much the very first time we met him. From beginning to end, working with Alan was easy and fun. He worked with us to put together a ceremony that included everything that we wanted and was always kind if/when we wanted to make changes. During the ceremony he was genuine and real and brought his humor (that I loved so much) at all the right times; it felt like we had known him forever and we were being married by an old friend. We had multiple guests say how much they loved him and how they would want to have him officiate their weddings/vow renewals. Alan is just absolutely the BEST at what he does. Thank you, Alan, for everything!Sent on 10/20/2019

It is very difficult to find words to describe how honored and privileged we were to be married by Alan. He was the first officiant we met with, and before the end of our first meeting, we formally asked him to perform our marriage ceremony. His passion and energy made our decision easy.Sent on 10/01/2019
During our planning stages, Alan worked with us to craft a custom ceremony that matched our personalities. He guided us as we compiled the various steps and consulted as we worked to integrate our cultural backgrounds. Guests, often focusing on florals and other aesthetic elements of the wedding, raved about Alan and how beautiful the ceremony was.
I own and manage a wedding venue and have the privilege of working with some of the industry’s leading event professionals. Among all my experiences, Alan was among the most sincere and amazing officiants I have ever worked with. We were honored to have him as part of our day and could not recommend him more.
Alan Neale's reply:Oh thank you so much Zac. Very moving and affirming. It is very special for me to receive such a review especially from someone who is a professional in so many ways. With affection and thanks to you both. Alan

Best officiant ever
Alan is extremely charming, funny and insightful. We loved working with him. We felt instantly at ease with him and we loved how much he really gets to know you. He put a lot of time and thought into our ceremony. It was an amazing day. We could not ask for more.Sent on 10/07/2019
Alan is the best! He is so personable, so funny and charming, you will love him!
Alan Neale is among the kindest, most sincere officiants I have worked with. He is relaxed, has a great sense of humor and simply has an awesome personality!
Reverend Alan Neale is a delight to work with. He weaves humor (his quick British wit!) in with Scripture, to craft a beautifully eloquent and heartfelt ceremony. He offers couples pre-marital counseling throughout their wedding planning process. Alan is welcoming, gracious, wonderfully funny and a gifted speaker. He makes each couple feel grounded and 'home' in their spirituality. If you are seeking an officiant, look no further.
