I have been a Celebrant since early 2016 and am a Validated Member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand.
As a funeral Celebrant, I will assist and support you in designing a service, ceremony or celebration of life that respects the character of your departed family member, accurately reflects their life, and responds to the needs and wishes of family and close friends.
I acknowledge and understand that preparing for a funeral is a deeply emotional and personal time for you, and I undertake to listen very carefully to your wishes as I guide you through this process. I will support you by offering suggestions that may assist, but I believe that your input is key. My role is to support you to do as much, or as little, as you would like.
It is my aim that, throughout this time and afterwards, you will be comfortable in knowing that everything possible is being done to honour your loved one, and to celebrate and commemorate his or her life, through a personalised ceremony reflecting yours and their wishes.
