As a funeral celebrant, I pride myself in my ability to listen carefully to everyone that I serve. Each family is different and completely unique. I am here to assist you and your family in creating the ceremony you need, in order to honour and celebrate your loved one with respect and sensitivity to your beliefs.
I work closely with my families to create a variety of ceremonies including both non-religious secular and spiritual services. I can also assist in planning ceremonies where different members of a family have different beliefs. Together, we can personalize your service and arrange your choice in music, readings, ceremonies, prayers and any personal expressions of creativity and love. It can be as simple or elaborate as you would like. The most important thing is that the ceremony suits you and your loved ones.
