... is the name I chose for my celebrant practice because of the special times in our lives for those important ‘rites of passage’ to celebrate life — whether it is new life, or a new life together with that special person, or a life that has been lived and deserves to be remembered and acknowledged with love and dignity. It has been such privilege for me to share such ‘life points’ with many people and I hope I can be of help to you.
I am available in Perth for Funeral, Wedding and Commitment Ceremonies; Renewal of Marriage Vows; Naming Ceremonies; Memorial Services; the preparation of tributes, eulogies and obituaries; and advance preparation of funeral ceremonies.
I have always lived in Perth and began my celebrant practice in 2004. Before that I had a 35 year career as a teacher and within the Education Department head office. I am proud of my record of involvement in community service. The feedback I get tells me that people find my ceremonies to be personal, warm, friendly and professional.
Your wedding day promises to be a very special day for each of you and for your family and friends. My aim is to provide you with the Marriage Ceremony that captures your dreams and wishes. I provide couples with a basic ceremony outline which we then build up to suit your particular wishes for the day. Couples I have worked with have really appreciated the opportunity to personalise the ceremony and to design their own wording for key parts of the ceremony.
In my work as a funeral celebrant, I find that every situation is different. It’s important to achieve a balance, a celebration of a life that is treasured with the natural sadness of grief.
Most people have left behind wonderful tales of the things they have done. I find a great deal of fulfilment in learning their stories and helping to share them in a funeral service.
