  • I have empathy and understanding and I am committed to giving you the best ceremony possible, using beautiful words and creative ideas.  My aim is to devise a ceremony that is individual, meaningful, imaginative and personal. 

    I believe that everyone has a story to tell and their funeral ceremony should enable that story to be told through music, words and poetry.

     I will spend time with you to find out about the life of the person who has died, their character and beliefs.  I will explore with you any ideas you might already have regarding the ceremony and make available to you a resource of songs, poems and readings that you may like to use.   There are so many decisions to be made and I can guide you through all the choices. 

    I want you to leave the ceremony feeling comforted, having recognised the person who has died and to know that you gave them a last, special gift.
