Write your own funeral
Whatever your reason for wanting to write your own funeral – simply because the idea appeals, deciding to get your affairs in order or living with a serious illness or difficult prognosis – the act of exploring your options, expressing thoughts and emotions and confirming your wishes can be soothing in itself.
I can support you to whatever extent is appropriate: whether working closely, writing actual text with your words, or playing more of an ancillary part.
Either way, an engaged but once removed professional perspective can prove invaluable when you are faced with such an emotive, personal and often complex task.
You may know exactly what you want or just what you don’t – a creative partner as sounding board, inspiration and advisor can be essential regardless.
‘We have both said that your professionalism and heartfelt passion to create a unique ceremony shone through, and touched not only our hearts, but the hearts of all our guests and family. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place!’ Angela
My 350+ testimonials illustrate the difference such a role can make, not only to the resulting ceremony but also to your experience of creating it.
We would have the added benefit of my real life ceremony training and performance, so you’d know any advice I give is grounded in experience.
This can be an upsetting subject for loved ones to engage with – this way you get the necessary support but without the emotional impact.
My fees reflect my level of involvement e.g. £60 – an hour’s pre-prepared consultancy session or £240 – a 1,000 word piece of text created.
