My name is Bec and I am 30 years old, I’m a mum of an incredibly fun, challenging and hilarious 6 year old boy, I am a relief teacher sometimes (when the wedding season isn’t in full swing) and I live in arguably one of the most stunning places in the world, the West coast of Australia, more specifically Perth.
I have been a wedding celebrant for three years and have just started to conduct funerals too. I think life is to be celebrated in many stages, whether that be at the very start, some wonderful milestones along the way (like finding the love of your life and getting married), or at the very end. In my opinion, you will not find an occasion that brings people together in the same way that weddings and funerals do. These ceremonies are an important tradition in our society, they are extremely special times and have the capacity to help people celebrate life in some of the most meaningful ways.
I am young, vibrant, a bit of fun, suuuuper relaxed and have known to be just the right amount of professional. I really care about all those small details that make your day memorable. I have always been a bit of a story-teller and love to bring to life your journey. I plan everything in a way that ensures it is all stress-free for you, so you can relax and take your mind off the things you don’t need to think about.
As for weddings… I love a good wedding, but mostly I love seeing people dedicate their lives to each other and just having the most magical day. So my promise to you, is to be fun, personal, affordable, to do my best to capture what it is you’re after and turn it into your most “perfect” day! (Sidenote, nothing is ever “perfect”, not even your wedding day, but I assure you it will be a hoot, not matter what!)
As for funerals… I first decided I wanted to become a funeral celebrant about a year ago, when someone very close to me passed away. It wasn’t until then that I realised the significance of a funeral, the role that plays in healing, and in celebrating. There is no standard, or ordinary person, so I believe there is no standard way of having to say goodbye to them. It’s up to you how you wish to do that. I am merely here to ensure you do it in the best way possible and in a way that truly reflects your very special person.
At the end of the day, whether I am your wedding celebrant, or you are asking me to conduct a funeral for you, I am here to support you every step of the way on your journey. I’m always here for a chat, would love to grab a coffee (or a drink) and would love the opportunity to prepare something for you that is truly unique and special for all those involved.
