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.  I have undertaken Funeral Celebrancy Training with:

  • 2007  Academy of Celebrancy Australia

  • 2020 Celebrants Training College

  • 2021  Funeral Master Class, Zenith Virago


As a member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants, I am caring and 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.

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.

Where to Begin

The Celebrant’s role is fundamental in the creation and delivery of a funeral service - it is a role that you don’t want to leave to chance.   


I would be honoured to be approached independently to be your Celebrant, and would then be happy to work with the Funeral Home of your choice.

Words cannot express my gratitude for the magnificent job you did in celebrating the life of Tessa yesterday.  Your eulogy was magnificent.


You made it so much easier for my daughters to focus on ensuring that their mother will be remembered for the difference she made to the lives of vulnerable people in the community.  


Thanks so much for your care, your empathy and your professionalism.  I could not recommend your services more highly.    Philip

Annie was the perfect person to help me and my family celebrate the life of my mum when she died.  Annie was reliable, reassuring and flexible, making suggestions as we planned the service together. 


Annie made our ceremony feel intimate and welcoming.  Her Eulogy for my mum gave an accurate and lively depiction of mum’s life and who she was as a person. 


Thanks Annie, you are a lovely person.  Bronwyn


Our mother Evelyn died at age 99.  She was undeniably the mother to Australian Womens Chess.  Annie was one of her chess daughters and offered to conduct her ceremony.  She helped us to get through such a sad time. 


The ceremony in Sydney was a wonderful, moving and touching remembrance of our mother.  Thank you Annie – our chess step sister.   Nick

I just wanted to thank you again for a lovely service for our mum.


Everyone thought you were wonderful and did a great job as the celebrant.  It all seemed to come together effortlessly too.


Thank you, Annie.
