KATE VILLANO

Funeral Celebrant

Adv Dip Prof Counselling

Guiding you through this difficult time to ensure that “together” we create a meaningful  funeral ceremony and celebration of life for your loved one…

My  role as a celebrant I regard as a privilege and honour. The satisfaction I derive from delivering a personalised service for a family, a service that has the guests laughing, crying, reflecting but very importantly feeling as if “I” had known their loved one for years is just so satisfying. When a family entrusts you to guide and support them through such a deeply personal time, it is a  responsibility that I take very seriously. Please take a moment to read the testimonials on this webpage (printed with permission). You can also view a recent edited service (again, with permission from the family). If you believe I am the right Celebrant for your Family / Loved One/ Service / Celebration of Life, please feel free to contact me.

I can’t recommend Kate highly enough! Right from the start, she was flexible, obliging, sensitive and made the job of farewelling our loved one as easy as it could have been. She also stepped in and wrote a eulogy at the last minute, to cover for one of our friends- and it was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble. We will be forever grateful to you for looking after us all so well.

Every single thing that you made look so effortless meant the absolute world to us, and words will never be able to express our gratitude. I believe in divine intervention, and earth angels… thank you for being Dad’s earth angel to bid him a safe passage. He would have adored you, as we all did. Enormous love and gratitude.
Rachel, and family
Kate was the perfect person for our Marjory, Nan would have loved her! The following day I also received some personal images from Kate of the day, which I can now look back on with a smile on my face. Thank you Kate, you are a gem of a person and a brilliant celebrant, you made one of my most difficult days so much easier. Forever grateful.
