Other Ceremonies

When we lose a loved one, a funeral service provides for the dignified and respectful farewell and is a special tribute to their life. It makes us acknowledge the death, remember the life and support one another during this difficult time. For me, there could be no greater privilege than to help a family honour their loved one.

“On behalf of all of our family, we would like to sincerely thank you for the care and compassion show to us in this sad time. You truly captured Joy’s warmth, character and zest, and made the day a true celebration of her life as we and she wanted. Many people asked after you and said they thought you spoke beautifully and some could not believe you had not met Joy. So again Emma, we thank you for making this time a little easier for us. Bless you.” Rick and family.

“Just a quick thank you for the way you organised and officiated the content of Mum’s funeral service yesterday. The way you welcomed us into your home and drew memories of Mum out of us was very professionally done. The caring, dignity and compassion you showed when delivering the eulogy about a person you didn’t know was amazing. We would recommend you as a celebrant to anyone. It was lovely to meet you. Thanks again”.

Although in recent years, these ceremonies have become less popular, what better way to welcome your child into the world and into your circle of family and friends than to have a name-giving ceremony. It’s such a joyful occasion and a great opportunity to introduce baby to many of the people that will shape his or her world in the years to come.

There are many other occasions in life that are deserving of recognition and celebration. For whatever you have going on in your life, give me a call and we can work together to make every occasion memorable.
