Inspired by you and Your loved one to create a
Personal Ceremony to Celebrate their life
Your Civil Ceremony
In today’s society with so many different cultures, beliefs and freedom of choice, we are looking for our final goodbye to be personal to us.
A civil ceremony is for all faiths and beliefs; it can include some religious content or be completely non-religious and personalised to your specification.
I am here for you
At this difficult time I am here to help you create a ceremony to be proud of. I will also co-ordinate with the Funeral Director and The Crematorium to finalise the details and your music choices.
Your ceremony is to celebrate life and will be inspired by you and your loved one. I will write and deliver your ceremony with compassion, love and respect which reflects their life and to comfort you all to say a final farewell.
During our meeting
I will listen to the stories and memories you hold dear, building a picture of the true sense of your loved one and provide ideas if needed. I will support you, your family and friends in every aspect of the preparation and ceremony. I can help you to find poetry, readings, music and any other personal touches you would like to include.
After our meeting
With the information obtained the ceremony will be written and sent to you to review and make any alterations required. This is to ensure you are completely happy with everything that will be said on the day and you will receive a personalised copy of the ceremony to treasure.
On The Day of The Service I will be waiting to greet you and conduct your loved ones service with care and compassion and be there for you.
We were fortunate enough to be introduced to Judi by our Funeral Director and from our very first meeting, we felt confident that she was indeed the right person to lead my Mum’s service.
The initial discussion was, of course, an emotional one for us and I don’t think we provided memories and bits and pieces of information in a particularly co-ordinated fashion! However, despite this, Judi managed to put together a lovely overview of Mum. She had very sensitively captured the lady, her life and her loves.
On a practical note, Judi sourced and provided the music we wanted and helped us plan an order of service that ‘flowed’. Not sure that would have happened without her guidance!
To conclude, we would wholeheartedly recommend Judi to anyone looking for calm and sensitive support in planning and leading a funeral service.

In one of the saddest times of our life, we have to arrange a loved one’s ceremony to say goodbye, remember and celebrate their lives. With all the feelings and emotions we had going on amongst all this sadness, we just wanted this to be something that our mum would be proud of and all our family and friends would remember with a smile. So when we met you Judi, you were just perfect, not only did you show us true compassion, we felt you really cared and wanted to get know our mum to create that perfect ceremony. Nothing was too much trouble as you only wanted us to be happy, and you certainly went that extra mile to achieve that. On the day, the service you gave was very eloquent, passionate and caring and everyone said what a lovely presence you had. We truly can’t thank you enough in helping us put together a ceremony we as a family were also so very proud of, and will definitely not hesitate in recommending you in helping others to achieve the same.

Thank you so much for officiating at mum’s funeral today. I know I can speak for everyone present in commending you for presenting a poignant, assured and wonderfully good humoured service.
In fact everyone came up to me to tell me that, as funerals go, that was the most joyous they had ever been to, which was exactly what mum would have wanted.
The words you added to my own were perfect, especially the historical references you made. It was a very well thought out piece, and your kindness, empathy and sincerity shone out, turning what could have been a very sombre occasion into a true celebration of a life. Perfect.
Thank you again. Len
We had to say our final goodbye to our Dad and on behalf of the family we would like to say thank you for your care and support over the past few weeks, it was a beautiful send off. Jane & Jonathan
I wanted to let you know that you took the ceremony so beautifully, I could not have asked for more. Giving us every bit of help needed with 'everything' to put the ceremony together. At times like this, when just coping, it was so nice to have you guiding us through a very difficult time.
It was a beautiful day with the sun shining, the boys carrying Mum to her final resting place, the flowers, the music and songs. It was an uplifting day for everyone. You took the service in such a nice way, professional with compassion, respect and kindness and it has helped tremendously to cope with losing my dear Mum. With love, thanks and best wishes to you Judi. Elaine.
