About Veronica’s memorial

·

– from Imogen

We approached Robyn to act as a celebrant for my mother’s memorial service and she was such an angel. I knew right away she was the sort of person my mother would have loved. We adored her and she was so unbelievably helpful. The service was perfect, she helped plan something entirely customised to our mum’s personality and beliefs, and we are so happy that we found her. ‘Funeral Angel’ is such an accurate way to describe her.

About Derek’s Funeral

·

– from Jade

“When my husband died it was sudden and totally unexpected. I found myself going from planning his 30th birthday celebration to his funeral. All I knew was that the day had to reflect him, as the wonderful young man that he was. To do this I knew I needed a celebrant who really cared. Robyn had married my best friend the year before and her ability to tell the story of their relationship made her my only choice. I wanted someone to tell my husband’s story.

I knew Robyn didn’t do funerals at this point but she agreed to help us. Thinking back now on how busy she was and how much time she spent getting to know about us all, her commitment was extraordinary. Robyn became part of our family, shared our loss and comforted us at our time of need. I knew I could trust her to honour my husband properly. Robyn ran the funeral both professionally and with heart. She read my eulogy for me and removed so much of the stress from an already painful day. We all simply knew that she would take care of the day. I had so many people comment on how well she ran the service and how it was perfect for my husband. I totally agree with them. Robyn with her commitment, professionalism and heart made one of the hardest times of my life just that much easier and I will forever be grateful to her for it.”

– From Mel

Thank you Robyn for helping our family and my sister and brother in law create the perfect service for my nephew, River. You connected so well with my sister and her thoughts/feelings and even with last second changes (which shows just how adaptable you are) and some pressures, you spoke amazingly. It could not have been done any better in such a highly charged emotional time for all.

Thank you so much from my family to yours💙

About Pat’s Funeral

·

from Annaliesse &  Craig

We could not recommend you as a funeral celebrant highly enough. New to the funeral planning nightmare as I was, you were a calm, patient and reassuring voice throughout. You went to enormous trouble to make sure you understood who it was we were farewelling. You spoke with warmth, love and genuine empathy. You went above and beyond to ensure that every detail of the funeral service went without a hitch – no small feat in Covid times.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Robyn for all that you did for us, in such a dark moment.

 

About Rosa’s Funeral

from John and Connie
We wanted to both thank you for such a wonderful funeral service.
It  was exactly what we wanted for mum and I know she would have been very happy .
It would not have come together without you – and we can’t thank you enough for that .
Many people who attended let me know what a beautiful service they thought it was. Very different to what they are used to but perhaps now they have experienced just how positive and uplifting a service can be. It was a true celebration of a beautiful life.
We thank you for everything

Interspersed with smiles and laughter throughout the day. You made the day so very special and we knew that we were in good hands with you at such a sad time for us. You made it all that much easier.

Robyn, you made all the difference at my Grandmother’s funeral service.
From being available at the eleventh hour, to late evening chats, to catering for our specific and custom requirements… Robyn, you just understood what we were after.. and you went above and beyond to deliver.
You spoke with heart and passion. You genuinely cared about the ceremony and did everything in your power to ensure it ran as seamlessly as possible.

My uncle, mum and dad both specifically commented on how wonderful you were in putting together such a personalised and meaningful presentation.

Nagyi would have loved it! I couldn’t recommend you enough.. Forever grateful and so happy we connected.

Dear Robyn
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of my family for the amazing role you played today. We were honoured to have you as our celebrant. We could not have picked a more perfect person to farewell my Father. He would be smiling down on us now.  Thank you, Robyn for your hard work and efforts in helping us find closure and comfort for our Father.

Robyn, it is you that we need to thank the most. You conducted my late husband’s funeral seamlessly. It is a great relief to us and the best possible goodbye we could wish to present to him. We thank you so much.

About Julia’s beachside memorial service

from Monique

Robyn, you are quite simply the BEST celebrant in the country. If anybody is looking for a person to  bring out the very best in any service, you are it…..

Robyn, you have a gift. A gift for words, a gift for people and a gift in your easy delivery.

You balance gravitas while being incredibly warm. You always strike the exact right tone.

You have a wonderful sense of humour and you know just the right way to use it appropriately. You also have an extraordinary ability to encapsulate a person, a couple or a situation. You relate to everyone.

I  want to tell people…..

Robyn is whip smart and there is nothing she can’t handle.

I have been fortune enough to witness several of Robyn’s services. She connects immediately with people. The way she relates to the families is something to behold. At a time which is so important to get it right, Robyn delivers with style, every-time. Her capabilities know no bounds.

Not only that- she is one of the most organised and proactive operators I’ve ever witnessed. Nothing is too much trouble. I have watched her deal with issues and challenges with ease. Her ability to manage any situation makes her one of a kind. People love her. With good reason, she is amazing.

Just book Robyn. She is one of a kind. I enthusiastically recommend her wholeheartedly. It will be the best decision you make.
