About Me

The moment I can I will delight in officiating at same sex weddings.

You are unique, and have your own style. It's my job to reflect that. How do I do it? By taking the time, asking the right questions, and listening intently to your answers. I can perform a ceremony that suits you and that is of the highest quality.
My talent is in my ability to be diverse and to use my education and experience to guide and inspire you. I have the results. Hundreds of happy couples whose expectations I have exceeded.

Weddings: Services and Costs
This includes generous consultation on choice and planning, an on-site rehearsal, training of readers at the rehearsal, a PA system with a separate microphone for readers. The priority of a professional Celebrant, is to give you, the couple, a complete choice of ceremony. Contact me for free Skype consultation and I will give you a no obligation quote. I am a specialist celebrant in GREEN WEDDINGS.

Funerals: Services and Costs
I have officiated at Funerals for over 15 years. I take funeral preparation very seriously. It is a one time, only time, only chance, to pay tribute to a life. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SHORT CUT TO A GOOD FUNERAL. I spend as much time with you as is necessary. I prepare the eulogy and the ceremony to the best of my ability and I check every word back with you.
Music is also extremely important. Sometimes a rehearsal or planning meeting is necessary for a funeral. I pride myself on being an independent celebrant who is interested in the quality of the ceremony and being there for the family.
The fee for a funeral ceremony varies.
If you are dealing directly with me I will give you an estimate based on your circumstances. The only way to ensure a quality ceremony is to put the time in to do the task well. (Ball park time - 10 -20 hours).
(I can also arrange to scan and sequence a photo series for showing on the television screens now provided at many funeral venues. The cost for this is separate.)

Funeral Planning
I can assist you plan your funeral and eulogy - a wise thing to do. This seems confronting but it is little different psychologically to making a will. I use the International College of Celebrancy's Funeral Planning guide and follow the details through with you.
