Farewelled with Love

Creating personalised and beautiful
ceremonies to celebrate life
while nourishing the
hearts of those who are grieving

Hello and welcome

The most common phrase I hear from families and attendees at the end of life services I deliver is "That was beautiful". It's what I strive for - beautiful memories of what can be one of the saddest days of your life.

As an Adelaide-based End of Life Celebrant, I look forward to partnering with you to create a funeral, celebration of life or memorial service that is a truly memorable farewell for all the right reasons. This may be in the form of a traditional or a more contemporary style of service. I work exclusively in the funeral space (i.e. no weddings!) and accept bookings in Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula and Yorke Peninsula.

With a natural curiosity about people and a love of creativity since I was a young child, I love to write and will work with you to ensure the true essence and uniqueness of your loved one is captured and conveyed in the ceremony held for them.

It is an honour to be able to work alongside families or friends to weave the components of a person's life into a ceremony of words and rituals that deeply resonate, spark memories, sadness and laughter, sometimes all at the same time, knowing that all emotions experienced during a funeral or memorial service will assist in the grieving process. Each time I attend a funeral, I love to leave having learned so much more about a person's character and life. That's what I want for you. What is said at their funeral or memorial service will live on in the hearts of those who attended.

It is incredibly important that you work with a Funeral Celebrant you feel completely comfortable with. While supporting you as your chosen Celebrant, I will bring warmth, understanding, empathy, compassion, a sense of calm, professionalism and a gentle, caring nature. I am a skilled listener and well versed in holding space for people who have experienced trauma and grief.

I trained intensively as a professional Funeral Celebrant in Melbourne with Silver Celebrants and am a Member of the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants. My interest in working in the funeral industry first surfaced in the year 2000 following my Grandmother's funeral which was under-whelming to say the least. This interest was put on the back burner for many years but the seed had been firmly planted and with more life experience, has now flourished.

My role in the community includes my Celebrant role, hosting Death Cafe style events and MC'ing events, including for Red Nose Australia and mentoring new Funeral Celebrants.  In 2024 I had the honour of being invited to write and deliver the Mother's Day Remembrance Service held at Enfield Memorial Park.

Thank you for visiting the Farewelled with Love website. If these initial words resonate with you, I invite you to explore the other pages for further information and look forward to your contact should you have any questions, need some guidance or would like to book me as a Celebrant directly. I am known to many of the Funeral Directors in Adelaide, but you can also request me as the Funeral Celebrant you would like to engage through your chosen Funeral Director. Funeral Directors tend to use Celebrants who they know, but the choice of celebrant is entirely your decision. If you have me in mind as a Celebrant, don't hesitate to make contact before you meet with a Funeral Director to check my availability.
