"Hi Sam, Thank you for all your work and support in preparing for mums funeral last Friday. It was an exceptionally difficult time which I know it is for every family when they lose their loved one. Your kindness, professionalism and organisation made it so much easier for us to endure on the day. Thank you for your beautiful words, you picked up on things about mum I don't even remember talking to you about which made the ceremony feel really personal. The visual tribute you put together was a lovely celebration of her life that we will all treasure.


We are very grateful for your care during this time. Regards " L and family -


" From the moment we met Sam to plan Dad's funeral we felt comfortable. She is warm, caring and honest. The service went exactly as we had hoped and her grounded, personal approach was commented upon by so many attendees. Many asked for her details afterwards. We would highly recommend Sam " - M and family - 

FUNERAL CEREMONY - December 2022

"Hi Samantha, We wanted to thankyou very much for your professional, yet heart felt manner that you delivered the service for our Mum / Grandma yesterday. Your genuine caring without being overwhelming was welcomed at this time and we appreciated it.

Again, a heartfelt thank you. Regards" - J, M, B and B - 


" I wish there was a way to rate Life's Celebrations By Samantha higher! Sam went above and beyond for us. She immediately made us feel special and created an amazing rapport. The service far exceeded our expectations. Sam offered recommendations for vendors that we were struggling to fill and let us know about some of the other niche things that are trending like the app photo circle which we shamelessly used. Always personable and fast responses to any of our questions. We were a bit nervous when searching for a celebrant as we were worried about finding someone who was comfortable and supportive of same sex marriages, Sam made us feel welcome, loved and supported. There was a moment during our ceremony rehearsal we were not satisfied with the venues wet weather option and Sam was there to support us until we found a viable solution. I know our day would not have been as magical without her. Worth every penny and more!" - Ben and Nathan - 


"Samantha was a perfect fit for our wedding. She made the event easy and had everything ready for us on the night. We appreciate all the work and effort that was put in to made our wedding stress free. I definitely recommend." - Crystal and Chris -

FUNERAL CEREMONY - September 2021

"Sam is a great Celebrant. Sam goes above and beyond for every event.

The first time I met Sam was at my fathers funeral.

Sam officiated the funeral professional and made everyone feel comfortable. We feel like we have known Sam forever.

I look forward to having Sam as our Celebrant at our daughters naming day. Sam has already gone above and beyond for this" - Joseph and Julie -


"Only yesterday we had Samantha help us as the celebrant of my wife's funeral. There is no better way to say thank you than a public review to reflect on the great work she does. The ceremony was conducted professionally, articulate and clearly spoken with the right amount of passion, empathy and certainly an understanding of the messages we asked to convey to our guests. Samantha made such a tough time for us easier to deal with and certainly a fitting send off for our loved one. Thank you" - D and family - 


"Sam, I wanted to again say thankyou for the most beautiful words for my gorgeous mum. 

It was so nice to meet such a beautiful, gentle, true lady. Thanks" -  L and R and family - 

WEDDING CEREMONY - February 2021

"After seeing how great Sam was at all of our families weddings we wouldn’t ever go with anyone else.

She’s so easy going and professional. She made our lives so easy.

We had to make changes twice due to our first venue burning down and then Covid postponing the second, she just ran with it.

She made our special day even more special. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough!"

- Blake & Michelle -

FUNERAL SERVICE - January 2021

"I highly recommend Samantha as she did my partner of 44 yrs funeral in January.

Samantha came to the house before the service for a good couple of hours to help us organise things for David's service.

Samantha was so kind, caring and professional before and after David's service.

If you are looking for someone to do a funeral, wedding or name day, Samantha is the person to call - you really won't be disappointed"

- Gail - 


"We renewed our vows on our 35th anniversary with Sam as our celebrant.

No pre wedding jitters are required as Sam seamlessly organises everything and anything you want and need.

She is just like an old friend ,happy ,warm and she has that sense of security.

The day was perfect

Thanks Sam"

If I could give 20 stars rating I would. Had the best day - she made our kids feel just as much a part of the process as us in a fun way....Brilliant just BRILLIANT! Would definitely recommend her to anyone. Thank you Samantha - YOU ROCK! "
