Inner West, North West Sydney, Sydney Metro
Celebrant, Funeral Director

I am passionate about helping to start the healing process for families who have lost their loved one.

Very gently I can guide you through every aspect of the most difficult day of your life by encouraging and empowering you and your family to create a story and be part of a beautiful, loving farewell ceremony. One you can be very proud of.

Sharing …and concentrating on all the wonderful and happy times you had with your loved one, whether that was short or long, will be comforting and healing for you, as well as for your family and friends attending.

Together with Picaluna Beautiful Funerals and a real point of difference, I will support you and take you step by step through all the available (affordable) choices and possibilities … from a large church service to a simple beach ceremony or memorial anywhere, and everything in between.

All with attention to detail, complete transparency and professionalism. Please contact me any time day or night – I will be with you every step of the way.

What some beautiful families have said:

“Hello Vivienne,

Just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart, for going above and beyond your duty as a celebrant, for little Mum’s service yesterday.

To have a very special person like you meet with myself prior to the service, to get a feel for our mother, was truly special.

The service could not have been nicer and you made it so much more personal, which was a credit to you.

You are a very special lady, who I feel truly blessed to have met.

Many tanks again,

Michelle Heiser xx”

“Hi Vivienne,

Thank you so much for checking in. As difficult as it was it was very lovely. My nan was okay afterwards which was great because she gave all of us a scare. I also wanted to thankyou for being so dedicated to what you do.

I’ve been to quite a few funerals over the years and every single one of them just felt like the funeral director/celebrant had no empathy. You are such an amazing person and you can see that your job is your passion and not just an hourly rate to you, so thankyou once again for everything. It’s just the truth, you truly added so much to the day, it would not have been the same without you.

Gabrielle xx”

“Hi Vivienne

Thank you so much for all your support and dealing with my mind changing 😊 I think it went well considering and everyone said it was a lovely service so thank you again for helping me put it all together. Mum did so well and hopefully we can keep her going in a positive direction considering the circumstances. I’m so glad you could help us again we really appreciate it.


“Hi Vivienne,

I just wanted to say it was the most perfect send off for my sister Gina. She would have loved it.

You did an amazing job with the whole service. I’m hoping it doesn’t happen but you can’t tell these days with hearts. I had a heart attack 7 months ago so who knows. But by any chance mine gives way any time soon, I would love for you to do my service. I’ve told my kids.

Anyway thanks again!!

Kindest Regards Fran”

“Dear Vivienne,

Thank you very much from myself and the family for your care and consideration in conducting the lovely service to farewell John.

The “running sheet” is wonderful for us to keep but also to be able to send to those who were not able to come.

Doing FaceTime with my ‘niece-in-law’ on Sunday, Karen asked if John would have enjoyed it and I’m sure the answer would be yes.

It was very reassuring for all the family to have your calm, caring presence beside us and your personal words at the end were lovely.

Thank you again for all your care and compassion.

Best Wishes, Nancy”
