"Shelly is deeply caring, informed, organised, hands-on … She took the time to know our family, our story and with her wisdom and grace helped connect us with the meaning, memories, and ultimately the beauty we wished to share with those who would come to pay their respects."

 Paula Llavallol  |  Watsons Bay, Ceremony Under the Fig Tree  |  2023

"Thank you to the wonderful people at Picaluna for a fantastic Celebration of my Dad's life. You picked a fantastic venue for us and made everything run smoothly and hassle free. The ceremony was personal and tailored to my Dad and his heritage and Shelly Bennett and Annabelle Peacock did a fantastic job. All the guests said what a lovely celebration it was and everyone was very pleased with the whole event. I would highly recommend Picaluna to everyone for their fantastic service!"

 Sylvia Reece  |  Bondi Beach, The Blue Room  |  2020

"Shelly is a warm, caring and genuine funeral celebrant and planner. She goes above and beyond to connect with families and walk beside them through the stress of planning a funeral. Her skills and networks mean every detail is considered and planned according to the family's wishes and honours and reflects the person who has died authentically."

Holly Rankin Smith  |  Little Bay Chapel  |  2019

"Shelly handled my fathers funeral. Her kind, understanding manner and knowledge, made what was one of the hardest times in my life so much easier. Shelly organised everything, she understood what I wanted immediately, took the pressure off me and the end result was such a beautiful service, exactly what I wanted. I cannot recommend Shelly highly enough."

Jenny Fathers  |  Jubilee Church, Waverley  |  2019

"Shelly provided a very sincere and personalised service which helped us navigate through the sad time of losing our mum. We felt very safe in her hands and really appreciated her advice with finding the right venue for a beautiful funeral service. I would recommend Shelly to anyone looking for a personal, creative and spiritual approach to a funeral or memorial service."

Tanya M Howard  |  The Cost Chapel, Little Bay  |  2019

"Shelly was fantastic and provided a lovely ceromony for my husband. It was just how we wanted it as he had asked for a 'humanist' funeral. She was supportive and gently took us through the process of organising the ceremony and his 'celebration of life'. Everything, including all the little details Shelly took care of and I feel lucky that we had expertise and support in organising the funeral at such a difficult and overwhellming time."
