What I Offer
A funeral celebrant guides the family at their time of loss and grief often alongside funeral directors from a funeral home. The task of the celebrant is to create a funeral ceremony that reflects the life of your loved one. I can help you with that. I can offer you the choices of types of ceremony whether it be a traditional funeral, a celebration of life, a committal or a memorial service.
I meet with you and listen to stories and ideas you have that will resonate with family and friends. Together we create a ceremony that will stand as a lasting memorial. Music, stories, readings, poetry and treasured possessions can al be part of the ceremony.
I will be asking questions of you in order to ‘know’ the deceased. I am happy to give a eulogy or support family or friends to create one. The ceremony does not need to be limited to one eulogy; any number of remembrances can be included.
Although I am a non-denominational celebrant my services can reflect the spiritual and cultural aspects if that is desired.
I would be honoured to conduct the funeral ceremony for your loved one.
"Both Honouring and Respectful"
The “Celebration of Life” that Hermione created for my mother was both honouring and respectful of mine and my mother’s wishes. I was most impressed by her professionalism and I highly recommend Hermione as a celebrant.
"Warm and Gentle Nature"
Hermione’s warm heart, gentle and joyful nature was perfect for officiating my grandmothers celebration of life. From the first meeting with her, I knew that she would capture the essence of granny’s life through humor, and love, all the while honoring our grieving. Thank you dear Hermione from the bottom of my heart. Margo
