FUNERALS

Funerals are a time of grief and sadness, but also can be about celebrating and creating an event that honours a great person and someone who was special to those that knew them. I have a firm belief that funerals are an opportunity to gather everyone important to both yourself, your family and your recently deceased loved one and mark the occasion with something memorable, emotional and most importantly; fitting.

If you would like to discuss creating an event that suits the occasion, please get in touch and we can take things from there.

Baby-Namings

Is there someone that you'd like to recognise?
Whether they've been just born, reached their first year or hit a significant landmark moment; it's time to acknowledge this great achievement!
My style is to keep the humour within the service and have a few laughs, especially if there's kids present... but I also recognise that this is a big thing and will honour the occasion accordingly.
Included in the price:  A personalised naming certificate created both for the parents as well as one for the guardians.
If you're looking for a non-religious, fun yet respectful ceremony for your child, give me a call!
