What a joy it is to welcome you to my home on the net. Let me share a little about myself.

My journey as a facilitator/presenter has been one of great change and excitement both here in Australia and in New Zealand. It is with a passion that I now create and perform ceremonies to celebrate the transitions of life for you.

I will be your guide to script, writing vows and creating rituals reflective of your unique tastes and personality. Whether, 500 guests or 4, important occasions in your life are worthy of celebrating in style.
Let's celebrate together!
Please give me a call to book your no obligation appointment, I look forward to meeting you.

The Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Mulhern 2020
100 out of 10! Joanne was fantastic from start to finish, giving us ideas yet getting us to formulate how we wanted our ceremony to go. With our basic plan she bought it to life, filled with fun readings making it exclusively ours. All the guests I spoke to said our celebrant was lovely, spoke well and in general just said everything was perfect, which we agree with. We cannot thank you enough Joanne, for going above and beyond with all your hard work! You made our day so memorable we’ll have to cherish forever.

Jo was like a modern day fairy godmother from start to finish and made our special day so amazing! From our first meet up to the day of our vow renewal she kept in contact and was so helpful when we decided to make our personal vows a little different to the usual. We would totally recommend her to anyone wanting someone fun and willing to go the extra mile to make your day super special!

Rachel and I would like to send you huge thanks and our sincere gratitude for the exceptional ceremony you have given us.
2 French for a renewal of their wedding vows, on the Gold Coast with their children as witnesses... and a divine Mistress of ceremonies to celebrate this moment. The best Mistress of ceremonies!!! It is not that so banal. What emotions thanks to you!
What sensations and impressions imprinted of Serenity, Beauty, Love, Peace... strong and unforgettable moments marked forever in our hearts and in our heads.
You have sized us up to date, without having seen us before.
Thank you and thank you again. We really think that to inspire, share, transmit as much kindness: you can only be a real angel... and we were lucky to meet you.
You have impressed us with your charisma and your professionalism... and your daughter also, whom we would also like to thank... she looks as her Mom, no doubt is possible. Congratulations!

"Joanne is a beautiful celebrant. Whether you need a fun and friendly wedding celebrant or an empathetic and loving soul to help you through the planning of a funeral Jo is your girl. Incredibly professional but always compassionate I can’t recommend Jo highly enough."
Dearest Celebrant Jo,
Our family wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the funeral of our much loved family member feel so full of love and joy.
Your kindness and compassion from our first phone call was greatly appreciated.
Your guidance through each step of the process helped us bring together all the wonderful memories we wanted to share.
You came into our lives and helped make such a difficult day feel so special.
Thank you dearly, Kristen
‘She is an Angel’, these are the words my Father said when I asked his impression of Joanne, who served as celebrant at the funeral of my Mother. Jo entered into our lives during a very emotional time, but did so with empathy while providing emotional support – I have to echo my Father’s sentiment. Jo took the time to understand who my Mother was, as well as the family members that were left behind. She then guided us through the ceremony with understanding and respect, allowing us to say that final good-bye. Looking back at that period leading up to and including the funeral, I have to say thank you to Jo, who addressed so many emotional aspects for the family, a family that is grateful for supporting us in our time of need.

Our Beautiful Daughter
Thank you Joanne for a terrific job you did for us at our daughter's funeral. Joanne comforted us so much through our days up the the worst day of our lives, Joanne was there every step of the way with advice and compassion. Joanne spent hours with us listening to us going through our daughters life also talking on our behalves reading out the eulogy we all had done. The ceremony went very well so much passion Joanne put into the service, the way she read out the poems you could sit and listen forever. I would like to say thank you Joanne for making that day very special for us , i know our daughter would have been very impressed, if you are looking for a good and passionate celebrant then choose Joanne Fae.

At the most difficult time in our lives losing my beloved Husband, Jo came into our lives with open arms & love. The compassion she showed me & our Daughters made this unbearable time bearable. The service she gave was warm & beautiful as if she knew our beloved. I highly recommend Jo into your hearts.
My Daughter's Funeral Service
I wanted to thank you so much for your contribution to Tone's beautiful farewell. From the moment you first visited with me and asked about her I was so impressed with your caring manner. The final ceremony that we arranged was perfect. Your rally understood what I wanted, the heart of my beautiful girl, and everything you put together could not have been more appropriate. You also conducted yourself and the service impeccably.
What more can I say than a genuine thank you from the bottom of my heart.
With best wishes,

To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to recommend the services of Joanne Fae in the capacity of Funeral Service and Memorial Celebrant. Joanne has worked alongside Newhaven Funerals for the past year and a half, having started in December 2019. Our Funeral Directors on the Gold Coast and Brisbane have had no hesitation in recommending Joanne's services to the families in our care.
Joanne is always well presented, punctual and accommodating to the needs of both the family and our Funeral Directors. She has communicated well with us when organising the service. She clearly builds a rapport with families from all walks of life as evidenced by their level of ease and connection with Joanne before, during and after the service.
During the service Joanne is eloquent and confident, creating a calming and sometimes joyful feel to the proceedings. The families particularly appreciate how she comes across as friendly and connected to the deceased in honouring their life.
I would have no hesitation in recommending that you use Joanne Fae as a Funeral Celebrant in your business. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

To whom it may concern
I am delighted with Joanne Fae’s contribution to our respected funeral service of “White Lady Funerals”. And would happily refer her work to colleagues and families. Joanne’s consideration of family support and professionalism in presentation is of a very high standard. I wish Joanne a long and positive future in our industry.
