After Life Ceremonies
"Love doesn't end with dying,
Or leave with the last breath.
For someone you have loved dearly,
Love goes on forever."
Being a funeral celebrant has given me the opportunity to give your loved one a meaningful send off whether it's a funeral, a burial, a memorial or a scattering of ashes.
It gives you, family and friends a chance to tell the funny stories, share the great memories, share the achievements, the tributes, and remember who this person was and how they lived their life.
A personalised ceremony script offers the opportunity to come together and be comforted by the memories, comforted by the music, photos and slide shows, special rituals that your loved one believed in and lived by.
The advantage I have over a traditional religious service is that there are no restrictions. The old rituals of the church can be very binding in beliefs, which are not always in harmony with the beliefs of your loved one or your grieving family.
Don’t be afraid to ask if you have an idea you would like to share for your loved ones final journey. Anything is possible, don’t restrict your ideas because you are afraid ‘it’s not the norm’ or ‘what will people think’. Be colourful, be bold and play that music loud.
This is the final chapter of their life story so close their book with love, laughter and tears.
Let me take some of the weight off your shoulders by helping you write the final chapter. We can meet and go over stories and family history. The script can be short or it can be detailed. The script can be all music with few words or lots of words and a favourite song.
Mostly due to time constraints, after our meeting I will email the draft service to you for you to approve.
I will dress accordingly to ensure I complement the nature of the service.
Contact me today to discuss your ceremony in more detail. I will be honored to help.
