Every Life is Unique
Firstly, if you are reading this following the death of someone near to you, please accept my sincere condolences.
At this most difficult time you need someone who will listen closely and communicate clearly, but above all else, someone you can trust. I am a former School Principal and an experienced Funeral Celebrant who is twice qualified:
2007 Academy of Celebrancy Australia
2020 Celebrants Training College.
As a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants, I am professional in all that I do. I am confident that together we can design a ceremony that is a tribute to your loved one and reflect their unique life journey.
As an experienced public speaker, you can have confidence that the funeral will be delivered both sensitively and professionally.
Choosing Your Celebrant
Did you know you are quite within your rights to contact me directly to secure me as your Celebrant?
You then inform your Funeral Director of your chosen Celebrant rather than them informing you.
The Celebrant’s role is so fundamentally pivotal in the creation and delivery of a funeral service - it is a role that you don’t want to leave to chance.
A funeral service designed and delivered well, not only honours a life,
it is an important step in the healing process for those who loved them.
Our mother Evelyn passed in 2014 aged 99 but she was also mother to Australian Womens Chess and Annie was one of her chess daughters. Annie fortunately offered her services and helped us to get through such a sad time. We were born to a brilliant organizer, but at that time, we were useless. Annie got us through and a wonderful moving, touching, remembrance of our mother took place in Syndey. Thank you Annie. Nick K.
Annie has a beautiful and genuine manner of connecting with people and ensuring their stories are heard and cherished. Some time ago, Annie spoke at the funeral service of a young girl dear to so many, myself included, in such a warm and compassionate way, ensuring her memory was honoured and respected. Barbara H.
