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.
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.
Choosing Your Celebrant
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. I can be contacted directly and would be honoured to deliver your service with any Funeral Director's home you have chosen.
I am also proud to be a partner Celebrant with "Tomorrow" https://www.tomorrowis.com.au/ . Their focus is on uniquely designed services that are 'away from the chapel', in locations of your choice, or of relevance and meaning to the person who has died. They choose to partner with highly experienced and quality Celebrants and I would encourage you to look at their website.
"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. Putting together a virtual service had its challenges but it all came together on the day. Annie made it 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, Victoria 2021
"Annie has a beautiful and genuine manner of connecting with people and ensuring their stories are heard and cherished. Annie was able to speak 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.
