Performing Funerals of memorable note for some 17 years; presenting and honouring the uniqueness of each life, with frankness, honesty and character!
Let the memories of what we have had in our lives, soften the pain of what we now no longer have!
Based in Cranbourne North, Victoria, I have officiated at thousands of ceremonies, each of them different and each of them memorable.
I am a mother of 3, grandmother of 3, a registered civil celebrant, trained nurse, midwife and childbirth educator. I trained as a nurse and midwife in England and moved to Singapore in 1980. There I founded my own health education centre called Birth & Beyond in 1985 and quickly became a leader in the field of childbirth education and parenting.
I spent over 24 years educating, supporting, empowering and inspiring women and their partners through pregnancy, birth and beyond in Singapore and Indonesia. Widowed in 1996, I followed my children to Melbourne in 2004 and now live in Ashburton, Victoria.
I have a background of event management, advertising and law, and spend much of my time working with our local and school communities. I am a mum to a couple of wonderful and busy children, and have recently taken up study again, venturing into the field of Psychology, a lifelong dream.
I've been a professional performer for most of my life - as a dancer, singer and an actress. Like many in the performing arts, I've also turned my hand to other pursuits - working in the travel industry, in fashion and in administration. So I've built up a really extensive and diverse skill set that enables me to bring to my role as your marriage celebrant, a wealth of life experience and the ability to both listen and communicate effectively.
Janette is a wonderful, warm professional Celebrant Born in NZ, then moved to Australia when 10 years old. She loves the beach and any waterbased activity being a keen sailor and fisherperson. Music is her second love along with her beautiful Vizsla pup who keeps her fit and active.
Professionally, I am a secondary teacher, with university qualifications of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology and post-graduate diplomas in Education and Educational Administration.
I was born. I grew up. I became a celebrant. Life is good.
My background is in Hospitality and Business. Over many years. I've learned the importance of Service with a Smile; The Customer is my Boss, There is No Substitute for Quality, Timeliness & Accuracy matter and a Friendly, Approachable nature with a Can-Do attitude is essential.
With my natural ability to be a calming influence, together with my fun adventurous streak, I am willing to perform ceremonies almost anywhere. So if you want to have a ceremony in a place that makes you think "who would be crazy enough to marry us there?"
