Celebrant since 2009

Julie Stewart BA Sociology. Cert. Celebrant Studies

I believe that our lives are made richer and more meaningful through the ceremonies and rituals that we as a society choose to acknowledge.   One of my goals in life is to help others gain meaning, through such rituals.  In 2009 I completed formal training as a celebrant and established a celebrant business so that I could fulfil my desire to assist and guide people through their significant ceremonies in life. It is my practise to listen to my clients, taking their lead in developing and shaping original ceremonies to suit their needs.

Client Feedback;

Thank you for your kindness and help in organising Dad's funeral. We were really impressed with the way you managed to capture the essence of dad in such a short period of time. You did an amazing job with keeping everything moving with elegance and compassion....... We couldn't have done it without you...

.....Heartfelt thanks from me and the rest of my family for the wonderful job you did as celebrant for Dad's funeral.  Every interaction that we had with you was professional, empathetic, well communicated, and decisive.... We were also appreciative of your guidance in putting together the structure of the service. On the day, everything went off beautifully with your leadership.  I was happy that Dad was represented in a simple and dignified manner, with laughter and tears.  It was truly uplifting...

When my mother died unexpectedly and we asked the funeral home to provide us their best celebrant for the service I didn't really expect too much; because this person would'nt know my Mum.  Julie came around to meet us, came back another time to finalise things, kept in touch and made suggestions in the days before the service. And then she gave the best service for Mum that we could have asked for.  Her sensitivity, professionalism, and genuine care and concern for us, as well as everyone at the service was obvious.  Julie is an absolute gem and we cannot recommend her highly enough.  Thanks Julie, for everything you have done for us and for honouring Mum with a wonderfully crafted and delivered funeral Service....Suzanne Edwards
