It’s so difficult and I’m so sorry for your pain.
My aim, as a celebrant, is to honour the life and legacy of your loved one and to bring peace of mind and closure to the bereaved. This is achieved by collaborating closely with you and your family to ensure the ceremony truly does justice to the person being honoured.
I am acutely aware of what a privilege it is to facilitate such an important ceremony and to pay homage to your loved one. Every skill and resource at my disposal will be used to ensure that all aspects of the service are dignified, authentic, and compassionate and exceed your hopes and expectations.
My promise to you is that I will listen carefully and be responsive to your intentions and expectations, give sound advice as to what works well, provide alternatives for you to consider, be passionate about getting your ceremony right, and be creative and eager to find and suggest something new.
With decades of experience in public speaking, event co-ordination, landscaping, caregiving, and executive NGO work, my unique skill set and ability to pay attention to the minutest of details, practically and creatively, will ensure a ceremony that is beautiful, meaningful, personalised, and appropriate.
To set your mind at ease and reassure you of my competence, in 2018 I organised an international conference with delegates and speakers from 23 countries. It was described by many as a flawless and impeccably co-ordinated event.
By nature, I am deeply compassionate and empathetic and have worked with the dying and their loved ones for many years in a supportive capacity.
