Wedding Ceremonies

Your wedding day is one of the most important, joyous and memorable days of your lives. Whatever you're dreaming of, I can help create a beautiful moment in time.

Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is a warm, loving and joyous event. It is a wonderful way to celebrate the arrival of a new born, toddler, teenager, the uniting of step or adopted children within a family or an adult name change.

Living Wake

A living wake (living funeral) is a way to celebrate the people you love while they are still here to hear it.

It is a gathering that becomes a stage for people to share stories, memories and lifetime achievements. It is an opportunity to express love, appreciation and those things we wish we had said if we had found the right time.

Funeral Services

Funeral ceremonies and memorial ceremonies should be personal and intimate. Funeral celebrants can prepare ceremonies that reflect the person’s personality and life. They work closely with families to create a ceremony that is filled with storytelling, readings and favourite music that capture the essence of the departed one.

of Life

A celebration of life service is an opportunity for family and friends to pay tribute to a loved one while saying goodbye in a uniquely personal way.

Civil Celebrant Ceremonies


Ceremonies with Heart & Soul

For many years I have wanted to be a civil celebrant. To bring true compassion, care and understanding to ceremonies is something I am so passionate about.

The decision to become a celebrant was an easy one, it was just a matter of timing.

Last year I completed accreditation to become a Commonwealth Authorised Marriage and Civil Celebrant. It would be an honour to be able to support and guide you to compose a meaningful and loving celebration for whatever ceremony you require or desire.

I can assist with many different types of Celebrancy Services, Ceremonies, or Celebrations in the Greater Melbourne and South Gippsland areas:

  • Wedding Ceremonies; Commitment Ceremonies; Elopement; Renewal of Vows; etc.
  • Naming Ceremonies; New Born Arrival; Welcoming a Toddler, Teenager, Step-Child, Adopted Child into your family; Adult Name Change; Love and Commitment Ceremonies; Baby Naming Ceremonies; etc.
  • Living Wake Ceremonies; Living Funeral; Life Celebration; etc
  • Funeral Services; Burial Services; Graveside Services; Memorials; Celebration of Life; Cremation Services; Scattering of Ashes; etc
  • Any Celebrancy Services or Celebrations – including Divorce Celebrations or Significant Birthdays.
