 by scattering the ashes of someone you love – near the ocean or let’s light a thousand lanterns and let their spirits soar or a bushland burial..

Planning for a funeral can be an opportunity for a family and friends to come together, to share an intimate experience with their loved one and to strengthen the bond between us all.

I encourage you to consider that the ceremony doesn’t necessarily have to be held at the discretion of the funeral director. It can take place at a Church, an outside chapel, the home of the deceased, nursing home or any place that personifies their life whilst on earth, a place where the family can quietly reflect in their familiar surroundings. There are many possibilities.

An end of life ceremony can be whatever you want it to be … it can be a memorial service or a living wake and whatever the occasion calls as we are not limited to any time or place… for example, I love twilight services… or dawn … I have also performed the most exquisite outdoor funeral service in the Nangulan gardens in country Victoria. There were no time restrictions or day – in fact we held it on a Saturday evening.nanga gnulle gardens chapel (Medium)

Memorial services or living wakes are a precious  time for everyone to say their heart felt farewells when family and friends have the opportunity to make their travel arrangements if necessary.

So take the time you need. I feel so so blessed to be able to bring you a message of hope that your loved one’s end of life service will honor them and that we have all been given this unique opportunity to show the love we have for them.

For me I am planning my own funeral. It will be the scattering of my ashes at one of my favorite beaches with the extraordinary Israel Kamakawiwoʻole singing Somewhere over the rainbow and What a Wonderful World ! I know it sounds like everyone is doing that but hey it’s my funeral afterall…….

Blessings to you at this time of bereavement…. I will walk beside you and take you through the hardest day of your life which you thought you could never do alone….So please talk to me soon and wonder the difference we can make together to our lives.Blessings to you at this time of bereavement….  Kristina

Hello my name is Kristina Visser and I would love the opportunity to be your Celebrant. I take my role as a Wedding Celebrant seriously. I treat every occasion professionally but also like to mix in a lot of fun. I live at Horsfield Bay on the exquisite Central Coast of NSW just a stepping stone from Sydney and the Hunter Valley which includes the beautiful hinterland with all of its abundance of natural venues from rainforests, national parks to our beaches not to mention quaint chapels and restaurants. Come and visit! Life as a CMC has been an on-going project for me filled with musings and possibilities requiring compassion, tact and understanding. I love researching and exploring the variety and significance of celebrations, particularly interfaith. This is combined with my natural writing skills and a background in journalistic studies. I am keen to pass on the gifts of my learnings. “When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.“ Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally So if you feel you have a rapport with me please send me an enquiry so we can get started. Congratulations again! Detailed information on Weddings For other rituals and celebrations I offer please see Services Kristina Visser Mobile: 0417 298 046 Email:
