A Unique Funeral Service

Thank you to Connie Vella for allowing us to share some beautiful photos from her late father Fred’s funeral service.

Alison from Guardian Funerals Minchinbury found us for this funeral service via google.

She saw Connie and the family on the weekend, and by Sunday evening we were booked for a Monday service.

The family decided on our Premium Videography package to capture the arrival and departure of Fred, and extra coverage inside the church to be able to see family.

It was such a unique service, as the hearse arrived with the Fred's son driving his prized possessions - his tractor and boat!

At the end of the service, Fred was placed in his boat for the journey to Pinegrove Memorial Park, driven by his beloved Holden Statesman car.

Here’s what Alison and Connie had to say:

“Thank you for sending this through, it was wonderful to watch!
The family said Michelle was amazing, she was pleasant and discreet and was able to capture the moment beautifully. They were very very happy with her, and they loved the video. They were also very grateful that she was able to step in and help at such short notice”
-Alison MacDonald, Funeral Arranger - Guardian Funerals Minchinbury

“Hi Michelle
I have just watched part of it. You've done an amazing job. Thank u thank u”
-Connie Vella

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.
