Celebration of Adoption

Welcoming a child into a family whether by birth, adoption, or marriage is a time for celebration.

Many families want to mark this moment with a ceremony which speaks of who they are and what they believe.

As these ceremonies have no legal status they can be held at a time and place of your choice.

Each ceremony is created with you to ensure the uniqueness of your family is celebrated.

Why choose Joanne D for your funeral?

Losing someone you love is difficult. I will work closely with you to create a ceremony that reflects respectfully on the life of the person who has passed away and gives a voice to those who mourn.

Together we will find the words, music and memories you feel will be most appropriate to be part of the ceremony.

Trying to say all that you wish within the time constraints of a Crematorium setting can be challenging. I am happy to explore alternatives with you.

These could be, but not limited to:

A more comprehensive eulogy and an opportunity for others to share their memories at the wake after the committal.

A memorial at a time after the funeral.

A memorial on a significant date after the funeral

Wedding | 08/04/2022 | Waylam Brewery Newcastle

Thank you so much for being a part of it! You kept it so stress free for us. Which is just amazing considering how close it was to the day. Your ideas and information you sent over put our minds at ease and even when we were nervous about saying our own words you helped and I am so happy you did because the words were beautiful

Thoughtful, Professional And Outright Amazing

5 Stars

Wedding | 05/07/2022 | Hallington Mill

My husband and I booked Joanne for our wedding at Hallington Mill on 7 May 2022. Joanne from start to finish was absolutely faultless. She spent time and care helping us pick out every last detail of the ceremony to how we wanted it. She’s thoughtful, professional and out right amazing. We cannot recommend her enough. No doubt in my mind she would do the best job you could ever ask for. All our guests said how brilliant she was. Before, during and after, Joanne went above and beyond our expectations. She loves her job and it shows. Nothing negative to say at all.
