Having a Wedding Day with all the trappings is not for everyone. If you just want a simple ceremony to state your commitment to each other – I will create a unique ceremony to reflect just that.
The occasion can be as private and discreet as you like or it can be a public celebration with friends and family. I will design a ceremony which gives you as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. Although not a marriage in the legal sense, we can conduct a similar sequence of events and I will present you with a Certificate of Commitment.
Very often a funeral is something that we have not thought about before the necessity arises, and this always happens when we are feeling overwhelmed, possibly confused and possibly a little panicky.
Also quite often the family of the deceased person does not want a religious ceremony in order to say good-bye to their loved one – and this is when the services of a Funeral Celebrant is the right choice.
As a Funeral Celebrant I will talk with you to learn as much as possible about the deceased person. In that way a meaningful, entirely personal and respectful ceremony can be compiled for all the family and friends who attend the service to feel the loved one was fare welled in a way they would have chosen for themselves.
