Sarah Topliff Wedding Celebrant

Meet Sarah

It is a privilege to be able to spend time with families just after the loss of a loved one. Emotions are high, tears are near and comfort and care is needed.  

My role is to gently guide you through the planning of your loved one's service, work with the funeral home to pull all of your wishes for the service together, to guide you through the day of the funeral, and to perform the service in a manner that shows great care and respect.  I work with all funeral homes, religions, ages and beliefs.

Working with people ahead of their death is such a special time for me - and for the person pre-planning their funeral it provides much comfort and closure that they have managed to share their thoughts and wishes and provide guidance on what they would like to happen.

I am a mum of three, a Marriage Celebrant and Wedding Manager, a Pilates instructor, and have a background in events and public speaking.  


I just wanted to drop you a line saying thank you so very much for all your amazing help last Thursday at my Mum's helped so much making it a precious and special day for all of us.

Many thanks Sarah.  You did a wonderful job for us.  The family have continued to rave about your approach and management of our Mum’s funeral.  We can’t thank you enough.  I will let Waikanae Funeral Home know of our deep appreciation.

I am very pleased you were the celebrant for my Mother’s send-off – you did a lovely job. I know she would be very proud of us all. I promised her it would be lovely and it was. Thank you so much for the photos of the casket signing – they are very special.
