Hi my name is Eddie and I discovered a passion I have for creating designs for invites to parties I have arranged.
More recently, I found myself needing a service like this for Orders of services for weddings and also Funerals. The cost to have these done by other professionals was expensive. So I set about doing it myself.

You’ll be surprised how difficult it really is.

Then only to find when everyone has had various thoughts, and things they want to say and the vicar goes away and assembles it. On the day when you want everything to go well, you’re left thinking; I hope I did my loved one proud.

I know I did.

Having a natural flair to write poems and have been told I have a good way with words I have written Eulogies and given them to the vicar to read out.

Having received impressive feedback afterwards, set me thinking. Having offered my services of Orders of services for weddings and funerals to friends and family,

After some research I attended, completed and qualified on a certified course for Celebrants to be able to offer the support and comfort needed professionally to write words for people, meeting them at their hardest times and compose a Eulogy.

Now, I’m offering it to you.

Thanks for reading and for your time.

Q What Is A Celebrant?

A celebrant is someone who is able to provide you with a custom-made ceremony which is unique and personal to you. Unlike a registrar, there is no legal limitation or restriction as to what you can include in a Celebrant Ceremony. You as the client have the freedom to create a ceremony which is appropriate to you and your way of life and can celebrate in a more meaningful way with a bespoke ceremony which encapsulates your love, style, and personality.

Q What Are The Benefits of Using A Celebrant?

A celebrant will work with you and your family or as a couple, to personally to create a ceremony which is unique to you, or in the case of a funeral your loved one.
Just as no two couples or loved ones are the same, just like to me no two ceremonies are the same.
The ceremony of a celebrant is non-restrictive, so you can freely incorporate different aspects of religion, symbolism, or cultural tradition if desired. It is not compulsory.

Q Can Anyone Use A Celebrant

Any couple wishing to celebrate their commitment in a way which is more memorable, unique, Symbolic, and personal to them. Any couple wishing to include a symbolic ceremony such as a Hand Fasting, a Sand Ceremony, a Dove Release, or any other symbolic, religious, or cultural tradition which more meaningful to them.
Any couple wishing to marry in a beautiful area or a venue which is currently not licensed for legal marriage.

Q Are Celebrant's Restricted?

Celebrant ceremonies are unrestricted and can take place anywhere indoors or outdoors, regardless as to whether or not, your venue holds a marriage license. All that is needed is the permission of the chosen venue.
Like I tell families
It’s your day so, why not have it your way?

Q So Can A Celebrant Conduct A Wedding

Yes, is the answer however, the certificate I give you is NOT a legally binding certificate of marriage.

Q I Want You To Conduct The Funeral Service

Firstly, thank you for choosing me to conduct your funeral service.
All you need to do is send me your contact details. You can use the send message option below, to tell me your chosen funeral directors so I can contact them or introduce myself to them, in the event I have not conducted a service for them yet.
Then contact your chosen Funeral Directors and tell them that you have nominated a chosen celebrant for the service.

Q What Happens Next

After the funeral home has contacted me, they email the details of the deceased. DOB, Date of death age and next of kin and if different whoever the client is paying for the service and they become the point of contact. Note: instructions and final say so re changes to the service is from that person only.
I will then contact the designated person and arrange a time to come and visit. In the meantime, I would ask you to think about how you would like the service conducted and what music you want, any reading or tributes from other family members etc ready for when I come to your house. (During Covid-19 pandemic I have a questionnaire I email to you along with my business card and leaflet, that I would have brought with me to your visit).
There I would ask what you have decided on how you would like the service conducted and I would listen attentively as everyone present tells me funny stories and accolades about the deceased.
Do not worry if you or someone burst in to tears as these are being spoken of, I will take it at your pace. I even have tissues to hand too. If I have to make a series of visits, then do not worry about this, or think you are putting me out.
I will make notes and write what I am told so I have the information to hand when I write it up. I write as much as I can, so I do not have to keep pestering you to clarify anything. You have enough to be doing without me keep calling.
Once everything has been discussed, then I will email it to the designated people to read from start to finish.
I am only human, so there may be something not quite right be it a date, place or persons name. So much is said in a meeting little errors like this do occur.
I will say it is written as to how I speak, so something may not seem how you would say something, there also may be a comment I make too.
If your happy with everything then email me back and tell me. If something needs to be amended, then either change it yourself and email me back and say you have amended it or make your changes and highlight it in red for me to see.
I have a saved copy on my laptop which is written ready for me to print so I amend that version, as it is in a larger print making it easier on the day to read.
I would require any tributes being made by the family emailed to me, preferably in word document format, including the choices of music, as I have to time the service from start to finish to ensure it fits in to the allocated time allowed at the crematorium. (20-30 mins)
On the day of the service, I like to contact the family, just to check if there is anything, they need me to do before I get to the crematorium. (if you need me to grab some tissues, I will get them for you do not worry).
I will be at the crematorium anywhere from an hour to thirty minutes before the service.
I will always check with you if your still happy to read your tribute, and any particular details like curtain requirements (Open or closed) is still the same as discussed. It has happened it changes last minute.
On the day in my folder that I read from, the tributes are printed out to, so if whoever is reading the tribute forgets their copy (not happened to date but always room for the first) or worst still, you or whoever is reading suddenly feels you/ they cannot face standing up and reading or stops half way through, I already know what is being said so I can say it all for you or continue for you.
