When you begin to plan any life centred celebration there are always many questions - hopefully the list below will help answer some of those questions.
Frequently asked questions
Do you as a celebrant book the funeral or wedding venue?
Usually the family or a couple have made the booking at a venue for the ceremony. I will always look at the venue and ask questions as to what facilities they provide.
How long do we meet with you to arrange a funeral service?
I would usually visit you at your home at a mutually conveinent time. I would spend roughly an hour with you gathering information which will assist me in the writing of the service.
What does everyone else do - is there a normal thing to do?
Both weddings and funerals should be as individual as the lives that are being celebrated. For a funeral - what do you think your loved one would want - are they a private person who would not want their life shared with the public.
Do you as the celebrant write the eulogy for a funeral and story for a wedding?
On my home page I speak about us working as a team. I can write the life stories for both funerals and weddings, but sometimes it can come across better when told by those who have lived the story.
