Celebrant since 2018

Andrea Brady - Wedding and Funeral Celebrant (and for all of life's celebrations) and the person behind Celebrate With Love and Parting Words.

Skilled as a writer, speaker, presenter and storyteller, I have spent my lifetime working with words, and with people. I have built a career as a public relations and communication consultant to organisations across New Zealand and internationally. My background is in health and medical research and science communication, which I have expanded over the years to encompass a range of professional industries and sectors.

I love writing, and the opportunity to combine my passion for storytelling with the celebration of a person’s life has been the motivation behind becoming a qualified Funeral Celebrant and establishing Parting Words.

I feel strongly that every person has a story that deserves to be told – with authenticity, passion, honesty and respect. I offer my storytelling skills, and bring empathy, eloquence and grace to people at an emotional time of their life. I would be honoured to work with you.

Parting Words was borne from my desire to support those facing the end of their life, and the bereaved, by capturing memories and moments and weaving them into an eloquent celebration of life - providing the perfect words, when you need them the most. By interviewing family members, friends, and colleagues, I create the perfect tribute. The words will be unique, colourful and impactful, and depict the many facets of your loved one's life and personality.

If you are planning a funeral, I work with you and the Funeral Director to design a ceremony and a eulogy that is a fitting farewell for your loved one, reflecting their passions and achievements, whilst celebrating and honouring them. I am able to officiate the entire ceremony and present the eulogy, or  provide it to you for you to deliver as part of the funeral ceremony.

For more information, go to the Parting Words website, Facebook page or Instagram page (@partingwordsnz).

Celebrating love in a different way, I have also established myself as a Wedding Celebrant under the business name Celebrate With Love. You can find my Facebook page and Instagram page by searching @CelebrateWithLove - your Auckland based celebrant (the website is currently under construction).

If you are looking for a celebrant to work with you to design and develop a bespoke wedding or vow renewal ceremony that reflects your personalities, contact me to explore the possibilities further! I'd love to marry you!

I create unique and elegant ceremonies to celebrate life's most memorable moments - weddings, elopements, vow renewals, and baby naming ceremonies.  I love being able to work with couples to create a ceremony that is a true expression of their love. That means getting to know them - spending time talking, laughing, planing and importantly - listening. I can't wait to hear from you. Let's celebrate!
