Those coping with bereavement are not always fully aware of many of the funeral choices available. More often they gratefully accept whatever suggestions are made, not fully understanding that they could have done it differently until afterwards.
Most are only ever offered a funeral service, either conducted by a Religious Minister or the Atheist outlook offered by a Humanist Officiant.
In today''s modern world, many people are developing their own ideas and philosophies on life and religion, and therefore neither a religious nor atheist funeral particularly reflects their personal beliefs about both life and death.
A Civil Funeral ceremony is a dignified and formal non- religious ceremony to commemorate a loved ones life and parting.
Above all, it is a ceremony that reflects the wishes of the family and those of the deceased. It is a highly personal tribute created by the executor or family in consultation with a Professional Celebrant.
Consultation with the Celebrant
As your funeral Celebrant, I will meet you in your own home OR at your chosen funeral director. This meeting generally takes one to two hours. During this time, I will explore ways of making the service as meaningful and as personalized as possible. Participation by family and community is always encouraged.
Once all of the elements of the service are discussed and decided upon, I write an appropriate and customized service, including all of the various ?parts?. In this way, I can create a smooth-flowing, beautifully crafted tribute for your loved one.
As necessary, I will assist the various speakers before the event and oversee the ceremony?s design and facilitation.
During the event, I will facilitate and guide the proceedings, make any necessary announcements, as well as leading individuals through any rituals within the ceremony.
