Saying Goodbye to a Party Stalwart

Eliza from Gregory & Carr Funerals contacted me to film this service in Epping for the Late Gloria Martin, a longstanding Liberal Party stalwart, who was active in the party from 1987.

Eliza put me in touch with Gloria’s friend Robert, who chose our Premium Videography Package (3 camera coverage of the service, plus footage before and after) to film the service and the burial across 2 days.

Many senior Liberal Party figures attended the service, including former Speaker of the House Bronwyn Bishop, The Hon Anthony Roberts MP, Nathaniel Smith MP, and former Prime Minister The Hon John Howard OM, AC, who delivered one of the eulogies.

It was an honour to capture so many well-spoken tributes. From all accounts Gloria was a loyal, tenacious and hard working woman who loved her party fiercely, and who was much loved in return.

In the words of John Howard “It’s very hard to imagine the Liberal Party family of this part of Sydney without Gloria Martin…She was a one off - there’ll never be another Gloria”.

Thank you to Eliza and the Gregory and Carr team who were amazing to work with, and who handled the rain on the day of the burial with great aplomb.

Robert received a private URL link to the video to share with family and friends, as well as a USB keepsake with the high quality HD file.

He also gave me some kind feedback on the video:

Great work by the way. Very professional. I have received much positive feedback from those that have so far seen the video… Thanks again and I will recommend you to others.

I have just viewed, and so beautifully filmed. This is so special to have, not only for us but for a great many family members unable to attend, from Europe and Ireland. I was impressed by your complete professionalism and caring nature.
