Funeral Ceremonies

Funeral And Celebration Of Life Ceremonies

The prospect of losing a loved one is something we never want to think about. However, sooner or later, we, inevitably, find ourselves in that situation. And when that time comes, it helps to be able to call on a calm and composed Civil Celebrant with the empathy and experience to support and guide you through the process of saying your goodbyes.

An appropriate and personal ceremony is not only comforting and consoling to the family, it is also an important step in the grieving process. With your input, I will create a fitting tribute to your loved one; a ceremony that both grieves their passing and celebrates their life.

In saying their farewells, some families find comfort through the inclusion of personal items that symbolise significant interests or events in their loved-one’s life. Some also find it fitting for family and friends to offer homage through poems or readings of significance.

If it will help, I am happy to lend my experience in the writing of a eulogy based on the information you and your family provide. I can also help you choose appropriate music and readings for the ceremony and I am open to accommodating any special requests that honour your loved one.

However you choose to farewell your loved one, I promise you a ceremony that is:

  • appropriate and personal,
  • comforting and consoling,
  • respectful of your wishes and values and traditions,
  • a fitting and life-affirming tribute to your loved one.

With me as your Celebrant you can be assured that I will help you celebrate the life of your loved one in a loving and heartfelt ceremony that is as unique and individual as the person it is for.

The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down but gentle warmth still lingers on the land.
The music stops and yet it echoes on in sweet refrain.
For every joy that passes something beautiful remains.   (Anon)

If you are looking for a calm and composed Civil Celebrant with the empathy and experience to deliver a beautiful, loving and life-affirming Funeral Ceremony then, perhaps, we should chat …

It Was a Beautiful Send Off

Thank you for doing such an amazing job as celebrant at my brothers funeral.

In this difficult time you helped make the funeral service as stress free as possible, listened to and accommodated our various requests and were considerate all the way. It was a beautiful send off and thanks for the huge role you played in tying it all together.

You made it very personal and friendly

A big thank you for a wonderful job!

I realise you must do a number of these events but you still managed to make it very personal and friendly.

I know Harry, Paul and Karen were very pleased with how it all went and a large part was down to you, so again thank you.

Thank You For Your Compassionate Delivery

Joyce, reflecting on yesterday, I just wanted to say thank you for your compassionate delivery. The day was difficult for us but your presence made it just that little bit easier.

I spoke to a lot of people at Dad's wake and they all commented on how impressed they were with you and Suzie. I just wanted you to know.
