Wendy HaynesQuotation MarkI love my work and have been passionate about celebrancy since I was appointed in 1995.
It's been an inspiring and rewarding journey working side by side with many couples and families creating personal, unique and heartwarming ceremonies that have touched not only the couple but everyone present. 
Whether your celebration is a wedding ceremony, name giving ceremony, funeral, birthday celebration, or any other of life's 'touchpoints', I can help you to make it unforgettable, exciting, relaxed and friendly and, most of all, fun and inspiring."Wendy Haynes Signature

Goodbye to my mum



Wednesday, August 08, 2012

My beautiful mum died at home on Monday at 4pm. Alongside my father, three sisters and the amazing palliative care team, I have been holding her hand, washing and caring for her during the last few months. This past weekend the whole family
 were together, sharing stories, laughter and tears. Mum was very sedated although we know she could hear us and as she loved to be a part of anything going on... the four girls sat on her bed and shared tales from our early years growing up. On Monday dad went in to spend some quiet time with her. He read her favourite passages from the Bible, had some private words and was with her for a few hours before she quietly slipped away.


It is a relief that she has gone as she has suffered greatly over the years and yet, as can be expected, it is also very sad. Mum will be missed by us all as she was a great matriarch of a crazy and beautiful family. Thank you to all of my family and friends for your love and support at this precious time.
