Grief can be consuming. A funeral service, although often difficult during a vulnerable time, is an important part of the grieving process.
Reflecting the strengths and milestones of a person’s life is a natural and beautiful way of marking a person’s time on this earth.
As an Auckland funeral celebrant, it is an absolute honour for me to be a celebrant to help mark the end of a loved one’s life. In this role I am committed to working in a respectful, sensitive and empathetic manner to help weave together a ceremony that is personal, heartfelt and a fitting celebration of life.
You have personal choices around who you would like your celebrant to be. It is only right that you should feel comfortable with the celebrant who is charged with such an important role.
Sometimes a terminally ill loved one can get peace of mind by selecting their own celebrant and planning aspects of their own funeral service. Difficult as it may be, it can feel right that this burden is lifted from the shoulders of those they are leaving behind. I am available in these situations and work with compassion and understanding to reflect these last wishes with integrity and dignity.
