When someone we love dies we want to create a positive celebration of their life that reflects who they were and what they meant to us. We want to help everyone who is left behind to hold on to memories that will comfort them, make them smile, maybe even make them laugh.
As a Funeral Celebrant, I work with loved ones to make sure wishes are carried out, resulting in a life celebration that is personal, appropriate, individually tailored to the wishes of the family and that allows the healing process to begin.
I work with loved ones to write a ceremony of celebration and memory sharing, helping you to express the love, the joy and, sometimes, the pain, of their life. By listening to you and your stories of them, I will prepare a bespoke service that comforts and helps the family to say goodbye.
I help family members and friends to prepare their own contribution to the service and also help select music, poetry or readings to help complete the service.
Thanks to my career of public speaking, I am also happy to help family members prepare and deal with speaking nerves.
My fees start at £180 for a Life Celebration, which includes meeting with you to talk about the service you want, writing the full scripted service, communicating your wishes with the Funeral Director in charge, and delivering the ceremony on the day.
Monthly payment terms can be discussed. I do not charge VAT.
