Tara Snedden


"You played an important part at the end of his great life with such empathy, love and understanding.."


"From the first time we met you we felt we were in safe hands and you did not disappoint us. It was very reassuring to have someone involved who quietly, competently and reliably managed arrangements. We were particularly struck by the excellent level of communication and were so glad to have your careful shepherding and conducting of the funeral itself. Your work enabled us to have the freedom to mourn in the way we needed."


"We wanted to thank you very much for the beautiful, professional yet deeply personal, service at Mum's funeral on Monday. It was exactly appropriate and all we had dared hope for - in that it helped to emotionally contain us as a family.

You have a beautiful voice and a compassionate delivery style. I can honestly say it was the best service we have ever attended."


"With your gentle encouragement you helped us to remember moments from the past which we had forgotten, and we thank you so much"


"The whole service was beautiful, you delivered the eulogy in exactly the way that I had it in my head when I wrote it, which I thought would be impossible"


"May I say a huge thank you for today's ceremony, everyone I spoke to mentioned how perfectly you managed the proceedings and struck just the right tone, combining the sadness of the occasion with a light touch, we are all in agreement that it couldn't have been better and it was just what she would have chosen."


"You were such a right fit for us - you have a special way with you, a true gift and love of what you do. Dad would have loved it - I feel like we achieved something really special."


"I can't thank you enough, for your kindness and beyond the call of duty service you did for my father and my sister & I in the last few weeks."


"One million thank yous and more. You gave me such strength that carried me through the day, I knew everything was in good hands"


"Tara, words cannot begin to describe how much we appreciate your kindness and care, we couldn't have asked for a more personal, warm and considerate goodbye for our Grandma, heartfelt thanks from us all X"


"Thank you seems too simple, your conducting of the service was just perfect, he would have loved it. You brightened up a very sad day"


"I can't recommend Tara enough. The service was my Nan to a 'T' and was the celebration of her 94 years as well as showing everyone who she was. All the family said that it was so her and each of them found something new out about her."


"What can I say? Yesterday was such a lovely day, and my husband's send off was such a success that I cannot thank you enough. Everyone, and I mean everyone, said what a lovely service, your delivery was just heartfelt."


"Just a very brief "Thank You" for your contribution to the funeral service. Your sincerity, your assessment of our feelings and the way you spoke to everybody will be remembered for a long time, especially by those of us who knew and loved her."


"Thank you so much for the uplifting and positive experience that my Mum's funeral turned out to be, your calm support really helped us"


"You conducted the service superbly, and you have my grateful admiration. I'm sure my sister would have greatly enjoyed being with us in person!"


"What you did today at Mum's service was absolutely magnificent. We cannot imagine how we would have coped without your kindness and understanding"


"It was as though you had known Mum for a very long time and you handled each section with sensitivity and grace. It was the best send off we could have arranged for our beautiful Mum"


"Tara was chosen by us to act as a Celebrant for our mother’s cremation and funeral. The introduction she made to our mother’s life, and the manner in which she delivered it, was absolutely perfect and exactly what we were hoping for. Tara has great poise and a kind, soothing voice one wants to continue listening to… Considering she had never met our mother, Tara did an incredible job of talking about mum’s life, she is very professional and had just the right amount of empathy and solemnity for such a sad occasion. We would whole-heartedly recommend her for any occasions requiring a Celebrant."


"Just a line to thank you for the kind and sensitive way you enabled myself and family and friends to say goodbye to him"


"You were fantastic yesterday, it was all perfectly beautiful. If you ever need a reference I would be delighted to write you a glowing one"


"Many, many thanks for making Mum's funeral such a unique and memorable day. Your encapsulation of her history and the warmth and empathy with which you conducted the service helped us through a sad time"
