Saying Farewell Your Way
I create authentic funeral ceremonies to shine a light on a life well lived.
Saying goodbye can be a very personal and painful time. My role as a Funeral Celebrant is to take some of the weight off of your shoulders and help to create a send off that honours your loved one in the best possible way and provides you with some comfort as you say goodbye.
A funeral is not only a time to grieve, but also a celebration of a life lived, no matter how long or short.
I will create a cathartic celebration that captures the memory and life of the person who has died.
I'll spend time with you to find out more about your loved one; what they were like, what their passions and interests were, what you loved about them (and even what you found annoying....nobody's perfect) and what they meant to you. I'll explore the important aspects of their life and the things that made them unique. I'll help you to choose any readings, songs or rituals that you would like to include and offer you tips on writing a tribute, if that's something you would like to do. Once I have gathered all of this vital information, I will put together a funeral ceremony that encapsulates your loved one.
I'll work with you until it is just right.
You may want a traditional funeral in a crematorium or place of worship or you may prefer something a little bit different. Did you know that you can hold a funeral ceremony with the coffin present pretty much anywhere? A licence is not needed; you just need permission from the venue. Examples include:
The funeral can be held in any of these places prior to cremation or burial. It can include readings, poems, songs and music. You can even raise a glass to your loved one, depending on the location.
A celebrant-led funeral can be religious or non-religious. It can be humanist or secular, or include a prayer or hymn that holds a particular meaning for the person who has died. The important thing is that it aligns with the beliefs and value of the person who has passed away.
So if you want to give your loved one an authentic, genuine and memorable send off, please get in touch. And don't worry, after we have had a chat, there's no obligation or commitment expected. It is imperative that you choose the right person for your precious occasion.
Please feel free to read my testimonials page to hear from the families that I have worked with during their time of grief.
