A funeral or memorial ceremony is always going to be tinged with sadness, as it is a time to say your last goodbyes, but it need not be a sombre affair. By meeting to talk about the life of the person who has died we will work together to make it a suitable occasion.
I will work with you to create the funeral or memorial ceremony that you really want, – truly reflecting and celebrating the life of the person who has died. My approach is straight-forward, compassionate and caring. I am a professional Independent Celebrant, registered and trained with the UK Society of Celebrants, and I am happy to work with people of all faiths or none.
The ceremony we create together will focus on your loved one’s personality and experience, their achievements and interests. It will be a celebration of their life, reflecting both their, and your, values and beliefs, providing you with positive lasting memories. The ceremony can include your specially chosen readings and music. You and other family members and friends can be involved in the delivery of the ceremony if you would like to be. I am always ready to be alongside if someone finds it too much on the day.
A memorial ceremony does not need to take place immediately after the death – although it can be. This can be a celebration of life planned to take place when family and friends are available to attend. It can take place in a venue of your choice at a time to suit you.
Whilst I mainly prepare and conduct funeral and memorial ceremonies in the East Midlands I can work across the UK.
