Funeral Celebrant Melbourne

Funerals are not often thought upon with joy, but they are an integral part of our lives, and are often seen by our loved ones as a way of saying good-bye. A good funeral is not just a ceremony but also a way of celebrating a person’s life and helping to cope with our grief and loss. With grace and dignity I can provide memorable funeral celebrant services perfect for Melbourne residents.

I remember going to my sister's funeral in 2000 and being very disappointed with the Celebrant that conducted the ceremony. Firstly, he was late and all through the service I felt that it was obvious he didn't know my sister at all. He hadn't bothered to find out about her and I left the funeral home feeling very unhappy about this.

A couple of years later, I went to the funeral of the mother of a work colleague. During the service the Celebrant mixed up the names of the deceased's husband and son.

I felt so outraged by this, how could he do this? Surely he should get the details right? My colleague and his family were going through enough grief without dealing with the insensitivity of this Celebrant.

Both of these times I felt that I could have done a much better job.

At the time I was working full time for a large communication company and felt that I needed a change, I saw an ad in the newspaper about becoming a Celebrant. The memories of the funerals came back to me and when I discussed this with family and friends; my thoughts on becoming a Celebrant were welcomed with overwhelming enthusiasm and confidence in my ability to perform this role proficiently and skilfully. By taking the time to know the bereaved and the recently departed I can deliver sympathetic and authentic funeral celebrant services to people across Melbourne’s greater area.
