A celebrant can help families honour their loved ones in a way that befits them as an individual
The loss of a loved one is an incredibly difficult time. One of the most important factors for family & friends is to find a fitting way to come together in grief and to celebrate the person they treasure.
For some families a religious service wouldn’t feel appropriate. For others it simply may not offer them the scope or freedom to say goodbye in the way they wish. Using a celebrant can help families to honour their loved ones in a way that befits them as an individual.
Sensitive and respectful ceremony
Through a sensitive and respectful approach I can help to create a beautiful and personal funeral service, or celebration of life ceremony, to remember that special someone by. I am happy to incorporate personal wishes and beliefs into my ceremonies, and to work closely with the family to develop fitting and appropriate tributes.
This may, or may not, include religious elements, as is your preference. It can involve family members or close friends, who may like to contribute a reading, a story, a song, or whatever else you feel is appropriate.
Whether you would like my support for a private interment, or for a larger scale celebration of life event, I can help you to find an authentic way to pay your respects, and to share your memories in a way that is personal to you.
If you are working with a Funeral Director to make arrangements for your loved one, you can request that a celebrant leads the service, whether this be at a crematorium, or a woodland burial ground, for example. Some Funeral Director’s will have a shortlist of celebrants that they have used before, others may not be familiar with the idea of a celebrant-led funeral. However, it is your right to decide what kind of funeral you feel is appropriate, and whom you would like to lead this.
