Celebration of Life

Let’s Plan The Celebration Together.


The Celebration of Life ceremony I write and conduct is not a funeral and often take place sometime after a person has died. When a loved one dies we are naturally consumed by grief and funerals, whilst an important part of grieving for us, often pass by in a haze of pain, as they occur soon after death.

Over the following months or even years after the loss of a loved one, we can begin to talk fondly about them. This is a wonderful time to celebrate their life, honour them and remember them as the wonderful people they were. Just because your loved one is no longer with us, it doesn't mean that your love and respect disappears.

Celebration of life ceremonies can also happen before death.

If you are facing the end of your life and want to celebrate your life with your family before you pass, you are in safe hands. Contact me to see how we can write your story,  in your words to allow you to celebrate your life in your own style.

These ceremonies can take place anywhere.  Maybe your loved one had a favourite place? A favourite Hobby? We can incorporate anything into a ceremony which can aid in the healing process for those of us left behind. Across the world and over the centuries, cultures have celebrated their loved one's life as a way of honouring them,
this is what a Celebration of Life does.

Elizabeth, thank you so much for your kindness. Telling Ian's story in the way you did, you brought his memory to life in a way I didn't think possible. It has been a year since we lost him, yet you made him feel so present.
I really believe this helped us all. Thank you so much for helping us to remember the real Ian and not just the horrible last few months.

Celebration of Life


If you or your lost loved one made the courageous decision to donate organs following their death to give an ill person the chance of life, I offer a personal discount on these ceremonies.
This is my personal thank you to those families, as I am an organ recipient myself, it is a small way of me saying thank you.
