Helping you say goodbye and honour the precious memories of your loved one
My name is Katrina Staples, I am a Commonwealth Authorised Celebrant based in Ballarat. If you are farewelling a loved one I am so sorry for your loss. I know how important it is to farewell someone you love with meaning and how difficult it can be when you are trying to cope with your grief and loss. I will support you and your family with the funeral, memorial or life celebration and will help you say goodbye and honour the precious memories of your loved one. When you choose me to be your celebrant, let the Funeral Director know and I will liaise closely with them to ensure everything runs smoothly:
I will then meet with you to understand your wishes for your loved one's ceremony and to familiarise myself with their life. If possible I will also talk to several members of the family and friends.
I then work with you to create a ceremony and if required I also write a eulogy.
On the day of the service I will lead the ceremony. If family members feel they are not able to I will also deliver the eulogy and readings.
My fee for Funerals, Memorial Services and Life Celebrations is $350. This includes all meetings, preparing the eulogy, leading the service, delivering the eulogy and readings if family members feel they are not able to and graveside committal if applicable.
