Testimonials

Welcoming

“Roxanne has done two naming ceremonies for us and we’re booking her for a third. As a celebrant, she has just the right manner and just the right voice. She really takes care of the clients’ needs and is very flexible, and knows how to make it personal so that the ceremony is just what you want. We’ve had lots of positive feedback from our family and friends, and she really is very good.”

“Thank you for making ‘John’s Day’ so very special, it meant a great deal to me. Also you words of comfort helped tremendously, as we worked through the service, it wasn’t as painful as it might have been.”
Maureen

“Everyone was very impressed with your very professional, dignified and compassionate approach. Your presentation was perfect and a number of people later remarked you ‘must have known’ Mum – you’ve obviously got a special calling in this area. We certainly appreciate the care you took to get everything right and lead the service so smoothly… Thank you for making our mother’s funeral memorable in all the right ways. It was a comfort to have you… helping to make the sad time so much easier”
