Funeral Celebrant or Memorial Celebrant in Melbourne


It is one of my greatest honours to facilitate the funeral process as the funeral celebrant or memorial celebrant for Melbourne family and friends who are grieving. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to hear stories and memories of fascinating people. Even the most “normal” or “average” of lives has involved something interesting. I respect this opportunity for the privilege it is.

I am a warm, calming presence at a funeral or memorial. I am always prepared to go above and beyond to create and perform a ceremony that provides the start of the healing process.

With a background in event management, I am willing and able to manage the logistics of a ceremony (multiple speakers, AV requirements, etc) as well as writing and delivering a personal, heartfelt ceremony.

While I love being given the opportunity to craft a eulogy myself as a funeral celebrant in Melbourne, I am also experienced in supporting family members or friends to write and deliver the eulogy (the life story of their loved one). I have many resources available, including prompt questions to start the process of remembering a life and capturing the important moments.

I am also available to work with people in Melbourne before they die, both to design their ideal funeral or memorial service and to write their eulogy. After all, nobody knows their own life story better than the person themselves. It can be useful to capture as much information as possible from a person’s own memories before they pass. I have resources available that create a structured and safe way to capture a person’s wishes for how their memory is honoured, from their wishes regarding burial or cremation through to how they want their funeral service to run, including music and reading choices.
