Saying a Loving Farewell
Losing someone special in your life is devastating, your world is turned on its head. As a Celebrant I understand what you're experiencing and I will help you choose the loving words and ceremony to honour the life that has passed.
It was when my parents died that I decided to become a Celebrant, and whenever I help a grieving family I know what a privilege it is to guide them through the most difficult and personal of times.
I can help find the right Funeral Director for you, one who takes time and the care to give you the bespoke service your loved one deserves.
There are many options for ceremony venues, it doesn't have to be a crematorium. It could be a favourite hotel, garden or even a pub where the wake can also take place. Unlike crematoria these venues are not time limited, can be much more relaxed and far less stressful.
A funeral ceremony can be uplifting and joyful alongside the sadness tears, and often contains loving moments of laughter too.
Alternative Funeral Ceremonies
Most funerals take place in a local crematorium organised by one of the excellent Funeral Directors with all details taken care of under a pre-paid plan, but there are many other options. You may consider a ceremony in a beautiful Natural Burial Ground, or a simple, low-cost Direct Cremation with a special memorial party some time later. You can also choose your own favourite Celebrant too
The choice is always yours and many people don't know there are alternatives. Whichever ceremony you choose, I will ensure your final goodbye will be a meaningful reflection of the love and life that has passed.
Celebration of Life &
Because of the times we are living in, lots of us have not been able to give our families and friends the chance to say goodbye to loved ones as we would have liked.
The advent of webcast live-streaming of funerals has meant we can take part from afar, which I think has been a blessing in some ways, but it's not the same as being together with our families and friends to celebrate the life of someone we love.
Lots of families are now looking towards holding a special memorial party, bringing everyone together in a happy celebration of the life of their loved one.
I can lead a ceremony that will reflect the happy side of life remembering the best of what we love and miss about the person no longer with us. We can include music, fun and laughter, a real celebration to remember!
