Creating a memorable ceremony is my promise to you.
My name is Faye Saunders and I am a registered independent marriage and civil union Celebrant.  I look forward to working with you to create that special ceremony that will be meaningful and memorable for all the right reasons.


Losing a loved one is one of the most challenging and emotional experiences you will go through in your lifetime.  As a funeral celebrant I can help you through this process by making those tough decisions easier for you and by creating a memorable ceremony that pays tribute to your loved one and celebrates their life in a meaningful and honorable way.

I have an empathetic understanding of losing someone special in your life through my own experiences with grief and a meaningful ceremony is an important part in the grieving process.  If you have recently lost a loved one, please understand I consider this role to be a special privilege and would love to help you and your family create a memorable ceremony for your loved one to honour their life.

What my clients say …

Wedding reference – We wanted to say a special thank you to you for being such a big part of our day!  You made it so easy, natural and comfortable and we really enjoyed having you there. I really couldn’t think of anyone better.  There were so many guests on the day that commented how wonderful you were and we are very grateful. Thank you so much for the beautiful vows sheet!! That was very unexpected but so special and I plan to have it framed.  Very pleased I managed to keep my cool through your amazing poem; but lost it again at Mary’s song … thank you once again Faye!  Samara  Rice
Funeral reference –  Faye has been a family friend for many years and has been a supportive and true one at that.  When my husband Bill passed away suddenly my daughter asked Faye if she would officiate at his funeral.  Even though we lived in Australia and Faye in New Zealand, she did not hesitate to give us her time and fly to Australia the very next day!  Faye’s attention to detail with the family before the funeral and her compassion emanating from her beautiful Kiwi voice whilst conducting the service put everyone at ease.  Faye has the gift of a unique calming effect on people she addresses to the extent people inquired where we found her as they were openly impressed by her professionalism.  If Faye continues in this field of work, I can highly recommend her services as she will be an asset to the industry … Elaine Mason
Funeral Reference – Faye was recently the funeral celebrant for a very dear friend of ours. I have total admiration for the way she led a highly emotional service.  Faye met with the family leading up to the funeral, she gathered up the life details that the family wanted relayed and made sure she had everything as they wished. On the day Faye turned up beautifully (and suitably) presented and led the funeral in a way that was just perfect. She has a soothing voice and a lovely way with words.  Thank you Faye – you really were wonderful … Virginia Livingstone
