I am a professional musician and writer. The most meaningful work I’ve ever done, is being a Celebrant. It is a privilege and honour to help families to pay tribute to and celebrate their love and their loved ones.
After sitting with family and friends, talking for hours, I take very special care in crafting beautiful service speeches which I then deliver with warmth and tenderness.
As I am a singer, many families use my skills to sing a significant song during the service. Live music has the power to both regulate and/or release the big emotions that swell in us, when we are connecting to or farewelling someone dear to us.
Live music can make a service particularly special and memorable. Any song is fine to use in ceremony, if it significant to you or your loved one. From Billy Joel to Mozart, Pink to Pearl Jam.
Hand In Hand
I will support you through your process
Wherever you want to say goodbye
Take your time, this is your process
...I'm here to support you.
When someone is dying or has died, we can feel like we are walking through water. The emotions that come can feel like waves.
I am able to sing with a loved one before they pass, while they are lying in state, or being washed and dressed. I can also sing at wakes.
I just wanted to let you know again how meaningful the delivery of your contribution at Jack’s funeral was to us all. It touched me on so many levels and was quite the most beautiful way to say goodbye to somebody I have ever witnessed. I will never ever forget it.
My best wishes and gratitude to you Malika.
Thank you so much - I can't believe you have managed to take so many accurate notes about Dad. It is really a beautiful speech.
You have described and encompassed his life amazingly. In that short time you have spoken to me and dad you have really been able to describe my brother. Thank You. My dad read it is also quite happy with it.
I want to thank you again for the heartfelt way you conducted the funeral service for my dad. We all appreciated your warmth, your lovely song and your choice of wording. Many people commented and asked who you were.
It was lovely meeting you.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for conducting mum’s service yesterday.
It was an amazing send-off for an amazing woman.
It was perfect and it was so lovely to meet you and have you involved.
Thanks again, Brett, Amy, and Billie and the rest of our family and friends x
