My reasons for becoming a celebrant
Who doesn’t love LOVE? When we feel it, when we witness it, it brings out the best in us. It brings out a loyalty and protectiveness in us that we didn’t know we had. I have attended many weddings and, as with most of us, they always give me that warm, fuzzy feeling…..and sometimes a few tears! It always seemed to me that it would be such a privilege to preside over such proceedings. After a number of years thinking I’d like to “do that” one day, I finally did it!
Just as in a wedding we feel the love, so too in a funeral service. I have also attended many funerals and have been aware of what an honour and privilege it is to preside over the farewell of a loved one.
Of course, there is the beautiful ceremony of welcoming a baby to life and community. Who doesn’t LOVE a baby?
It is my honour and privilege to guide couples in creating their dream wedding, and also to help grieving families give their loved one a beautiful goodbye or celebrating a child’s welcome to life. I can’t guarantee I won’t shed a tear in either type of ceremony, I am only human, but I do know that everyone in attendance will feel the LOVE!
It’s not hard to understand why I became a celebrant. There is no better job!
