Wishes Captured • Story Woven • Essences Shared

Life is full of special moments, important transitions and difficult times.

Creating a ceremony gives words to and makes meaning of the occasion, which marks a significant moment in life’s journey.


Whether your love story (wedding), or a life-changing story (transition), or a life story (funeral), I’ll make sure it’s the ceremony YOU want it to be …

… and reflect your wishes to ensure it’s special, unique, appropriate, sincere,  and with a little gentle humour thrown in, to the occasion …

… so that it’s ‘remembered’ long after the ceremony itself.



My name is Brent Ruru, and I am an experienced validated marriage and independent funeral Celebrant.  And full-time Funeral Director with Academy Funeral Services.
