FUNERALS ~ MEMORIAL SERVICES ~ SCATTERING OF ASHESby Robyn Wagner
As your Funeral Celebrant I will prepare and conduct a funeral ceremony, tailored to suit your individual family’s requirements. We can work together to compose a personalised ceremony, using words and music that reflect the person who has passed on.
I have a Diploma in Ministry, Certificate IV in Funeral Services and Certificate in Grief Counselling. I will help you to design and choose an appropriate ceremony. I am committed to providing you and your family with the highest standard of service.
I will offer suggestions on different formats you can choose from, including a selection of poems and songs. We can work together to construct a meaningful ceremony, a celebration of the life of a loved one, to say farewell in a dignified and meaningful way. Family and friends are more than welcome to take part in the ceremony. Should the family want a religious tone to the ceremony, this of course can be incorporated.
When you have experienced a loss, it is never easy for those left behind. But when you lose someone so unexpectedly we all feel the shock. It may help to know how many people share your sorrow and stand with you in your time of need.
On Tuesday 17 October 2017 I performed a very emotional service for a beautiful little girl, Olive, who was born at 20 weeks with a serious heart defect. We held her farewell service at the parent’s home, with family and close friends present. The couple had photos of Olive around the room and a touching DVD slideshow was played along with some special songs the family had chosen. I was so honoured and privileged to be part of this beautiful farewell for a precious little girl.
Hi Robyn, we just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday. Everyone said you were amazing and so lovely. They said you made the service perfect. Also thank you so much for our beautiful gift you left for us. I adore the poem you chose and that is something we will treasure forever. We were so lucky to have you be part of our service for our special little girl, Olive. You are wonderful xx all our love always, Lena and Shanon xx (parents)
Hi Robyn, I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful service that you gave for our precious little Olive. Our family will be forever grateful. We will be recommending you to all of our family and friends and give you glowing reviews for your kind, caring, compassionate ways. We feel that Olive sent you to us. Love to you always xx Kris (grandmother)
I just wanted to say with all my heart, thank you. You made the service for Mum so special for all of us.
We appreciate all the time and effort you put into writing the service and getting it perfect. We will treasure it forever! I cannot thank you enough for all your support and kind words. I couldn’t have done it without you. We are so happy you could share this special day with all of us.

Today I want to give a big shout out to Robyn Elizabeth Wagner– a wonderful and professional celebrant for just about every occasion. She is so warm hearted and transitions from a celebrant to a friend as she conducts ceremonies for weddings, baby naming, life achievements and funerals. It takes a special person to host your most important of days and I know Robyn would make your day extra special 💕
I married a lovely couple in January 2016, on the beach at Kirra. The groom was battling cancer. We all kept praying for a miracle. Sadly he passed away a few months after his wedding and I was honoured to be part of his memorial service where his ashes were scattered at the beach he loved to surf at.
