How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
A. A. Milne
A religious ceremony at the end of life is simply not for everyone.
As a civil celebrant my role is to ensure that you have the opportunity to remember, reflect and celebrate the life of your loved one in the way that they would have wanted, with dignity, respect and a personal approach.
Whether you are looking for a traditional service, something more unique, or something combining the two, I am here to support you every step of the way.
A big part of the healing process for many bereaved people is the sharing of fond memories of their loved ones after they have passed away.
When we meet in advance of the service, I will take time to really understand who your loved one was, what made them special and how they are fondly remembered by those they have left behind.
From this conversation I will craft a truly personal tribute to your loved one that can offer a moment of reflection on their life during the service.
Music, poetry and readings can offer a true sense of what your loved one was like in life.
As a civil celebrant your service can include any aspects you would like. Although I can't provide a religious ceremony if you would like a prayer to be read or a passage from a holy book then that is absolutely possible.
You may have some ideas already but know that I am also always most happy to offer suggestions or examples of what could work best for your service.
Again, we will work closely together to ensure we get this element absolutely right.
HERE FOR YOU
As your celebrant I am here to support you in the process of crafting and delivering a fitting tribute to your loved one.
This special moment can be an opportunity to fondly remember what made them special, a moment to reflect on times spent together, and a chance to share your memories with those around you. My aim is to create a ceremony that allows you time to process and continue the journey of healing after your loss.
As we build the tribute to your loved one together, you will have direct contact with me throughout, from our initial meeting right through to the service itself.
Simply put, I am here for you.
