Late last year I had the honour of capturing a very special service for the most senior surviving officer with Second World War service. I was asked by the family to record the full service and military procession from the church to the Cenotaph at Martin Place.
St. Finbar’s Catholic Church, Sans Souci
I was booked to do the Audio Visual set up for this service by Danielle from Guardian Funerals Rockdale.
The church didn't have a screen or projector to play a photo tribute, so I rustled up all equipment required: screen projector, music, speaker, laptop. It was another very hot day in the high 30’s, and the church wasn't open when I arrived…which really made me sweat! I normally start set up over an hour before the service starts!
Boland Funerals Chapel, Maroubra & Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park
Recommended by Rob at Boland Funerals, the family requested the chapel and burial service be filmed for relatives in Croatia.
Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park, South Chapel
For this service, we were booked by celebrant Dominic. The family required a live stream to a TV outside of South Chapel at Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park, as there were too many people to fit inside the chapel.
All Saints Catholic Parish, Liverpool
On the 29th of January we farewelled the late Max Perram, of Max Perrams Funeral Service. I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Max Perram staff for a number of years, so it was an honour to document his final journey with them.
St Brigid’s Catholic Church, Coogee
I headed out to Coogee for this funeral service, which honoured a former President of Bondi Surf Lifesaving Club, who was well known in the east in surf rescue circles.
Guardian Funerals Chapel, Minchinbury
For this intimate service, I was referred by location manager Luke at Guardian Funerals Minchinbury.
The Family couldn't make the service, and chose to have filming focusing on the inside of the chapel.
Norwood Park Crematorium, ACT
‘The beautiful five-year-old girl who moved the hearts of all who knew her in Canberra has died after a desperate search for treatment for her highly aggressive brain tumour’…this was how the local paper described the deceased for this moving service.
Woronora Memorial Park, West Chapel
For this touching service, the family was referred to me by Maree Simplicity Funerals, Miranda. The sister of the deceased was very close with her brother and was devastated she couldn't attend the service, as she is in a nursing home
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.Ann, Wentworth Falls
