What’s included in my Standard Wedding Package Fee:
There comes a time in everyone’s life when we gather to honour the life of our loved ones. Saying goodbye to someone you love is one of the most difficult things most of us ever have to do. I will work with you to create a heartfelt service that draws on your traditions and rituals, beliefs and values that will invite people to reflect and to remember. Funerals are an expression of a life lived and together we will create a space and ceremony that pays tribute to your loved one. The planning required for this is emotional and tiring. You want someone who can make it easier. If you want someone who is able to take your memories and your stories and share them with all those who have come to celebrate the life and times of your loved one, I am the funeral celebrant you need.
“On behalf of my mother and family, I wish to thank you for conducting the funeral service for my Father yesterday so well. We have had a lot of favourable comments regarding your part. So many people did not realise that you had not actually met Dad before. We were so impressed with all the research you had done regarding the day that Dad was born. You made it so much easier for us to get through, thankyou once again.”
“Thank you Michael for being the celebrant for my brothers service. You made the planning process so easy and you enabled me to feel at ease that everything was going to go smoothly. Many people commented to me what a wonderful tribute the service was and again I would like to thank you for guiding me through the planning process to ensure this took place. You are a professional, caring, understanding and supportive celebrant.”
“Thank you for your outstanding support and help in making mum's funeral service such a beautiful and fitting tribute to a wonderful lady. We have received lots and lots of really lovely comments on the care and attention to detail in the planning and conduct of the service and this reflects the personalised and professional service you afforded the family. Selecting the "right" celebrant can be a daunting task however with the perfect vision of hindsight asking you to take on this important role for us was always the right choice. The time you spent with us to gain an insight in to her life was reflected in your personal touch and sincerity of service. Your watchful eye and attention to detail is greatly appreciated and I'm sure will not go unnoticed by others who may seek your help. Lastly, on what is always a difficult day your care and support made her farewell a celebration of a life well lived and for that we will be forever grateful.”
“Michael is an absolute gem. He is kind, gentle, pragmatic and excellent at what he does. He helped design a moving and wonderful service honouring the life of my father. At an incredibly painful time for my family, Michael’s compassion and depth of experience was an enormous comfort. His warmth, professionalism and empathy made me feel safe and supported throughout the entire process. Michael respected our wishes, made brilliant suggestions and delivered a service that was personal, joyful and perfectly reflected the nature and quality of my Dad - and our love for him.”
