What exactly is a funeral celebrant? 

A funeral celebrant is a trained professional who creates and conducts personalised funeral ceremonies that reflect the desires of the deceased and their family. They are experts in navigating the emotional terrain of grief, guiding families through the process of creating a meaningful ceremony that honors and celebrates the life of their loved one.

My experience allows me to bring a personal touch to every funeral ceremony.

I work closely with the family to create a ceremony that is reflective of the deceased’s beliefs, values, and personality. 

This allows for a truly unique and tailored experience that highlights the individuality of the person who has passed away.

Unlike traditional funeral services, I am not bound by any specific religious beliefs or doctrine. 

This may appeal to families from diverse backgrounds and ensures that all mourners feel included and respected. 

Funeral celebrants have revolutionised the way we say our final goodbyes to loved ones. 

With a personalised approach, compassion, and understanding, I create funeral ceremonies that truly honor the unique life and legacy of those you have lost. By listening, collaborating and creating meaningful experiences ensuring that families find comfort, closure, and a sense of peace during a time of profound grief.


Helen (wife of deceased)

“Many thanks from us all for your help and participation (both on the day and behind the scenes)- it made everything so much easier and less stressful.

Your truly felt like family by the end.”

Beverley Jones (sister of deceased)

“After the recent passing of my sister, we were looking for an officiant to help us with the service. We found Lucy Suze. And what a wonderful find she was. Her professionalism was matched by her empathy and an ability to connect with a room full of grieving people that she’d never met before.

She asked us how we wanted the service to go and we said we wanted it to be light hearted. Lucy’s tone was perfect. She read the eulogy and paid a wonderful homage to my sister whom she’d never met. She was caring and made sure that my nephew and I were looked after. I had read her good reviews as a marriage celebrant and I just want to let people know if they’re looking for somebody who is warm, genuine, and can officiate at a wake just as brilliantly as a wedding, then you have found the person in Lucy Suze. Thank you so much Lucy Suze for making the day as special as it was.”

Jackson Ritchie (son of deceased)

“Lucy Suze was the most incredible celebrant for my late mother’s celebration of life. Everyone I spoke with afterwards commented on how perfect she was – so authentic, warm, and genuinely lovely, Lucy truly made the day what it was. Not only was she incredibly supportive in the lead up to the day with planning and writing of the eulogy, she was so helpful on the day to ensure everything went smoothly and even went to the effort to take lots of photos and videos! Lucy MC’d the service and read the eulogy and did so in the most beautiful way. I could not recommend Lucy Suze for ANY event you might have – she is an absolute star and all round wonderful person. Lucy, thank you again for everything! Jackson”
