It is a privilege to be Lorne’s Local Funeral Celebrant.
Serving Lorne, Surf Coast, Western Victoria, Geelong and beyond.
My work and style is sensitive and caring. The lived life story of your loved one has often never been told. My role is to create a quality ceremony that honours your family member in a way that you want it to be. Attending with care in a relaxed professional manner. A structure built around your family’s needs. From sensitive discussions with family members using the headings below I produce your loved ones story.
Experience: Both simple and complex memories encompassing the whole person. Your ideas, feelings and insights help to tell the story.
Tradition: Is the living history of the dead, not the dead history of the living this needs to be told.
Culture: Your personal feelings, convictions and experiences form your cultural ideals. We can begin to craft them with experience and tradition to create your personalised story.
With your help we can co-create a true authentic and unique ceremony.
Compassion, Love, Support and Respect are the key natural ingredient’s I possess.
Everything I do has love attached, you will hear that throughout the ceremony.
I hold a deep respect for both secular and spiritual traditions.
