Sylvia Johnson Celebrant



'There was never yet an uninteresting life. Such a thing is an impossibility'. Mark Twain


It has been my privilege to present ceremonies that overtook the voice of grief regardless of the circumstances of the death. In upholding and paying tribute for a precious life always there is heartfelt empathy, calm and comfort for those who grieve.


Today the choices in farewells are endless and far less structured than in the past; we can talk about these. From formal and large funerals to intimate gatherings, I am comfortable presenting ceremonies involving the young, suicide and other tragic situations as well as those caused by the natural progression of life, a life well lived.


Through a broad perspective of the world that includes interests in differing cultures and traditions, history, sports, politics, business, gardening, music and fulfilment in having a beautiful family, I will closely work with you to ensure your loved one is upheld and forever remembered.

"Sylvia, Thank You"


"Your tone for the service was perfect. You captured the feeling of the person, Nigel, and our sentiments very well. Many people commented on your sensitivity and thoughtfulness. What a thing we have had to do, but we want to thank you sincerely."

Helen, Viv & Ella


"Sylvia & Libby (funeral director-Natural Grace)
A very big "thank-you" for making Jenny's memorial service today so beautiful, moving and memorable. You both worked with me to achieve Jenny's wishes, and it came off beautifully. I can only imagine the amount of "behind-the-scenes" work you did - and were doing to make it all go so smoothly"
