Celebrant Dinah Liversidge Life celebrations funerals

Bespoke Life Celebrations

I create life celebrations for your loved ones that are as unique as they are. Planning a funeral, whether traditional or of a more unconventional nature, is so important. I work with families to relieve the burden and help them say what they want in the way they want. Contact me today and let’s talk about how we can honor and celebrate your loved one.

When you are planning a life celebration it can feel overwhelming. I suggest you start by getting some photos out and thinking about some of your best memories. What stories come to mind that you’d like to share with me so that we can include them in the service?

You might want to think about including some music too. What pieces bring back happy memories? What music did they love? Music can be so healing and allows a time for reflection during the service too.

My first visit to a family who has lost someone is often the first time they talk about the person who has passed, and the first time they share their grief with others. I have a very privileged job. The 30 years of experience I have had coaching and mentoring help me support others. Those years have taught me to listen, to hold space for others and to show strength and empathy in equal measure.

I love what I do; I get to sit with families and hear their stories. They tell me about the person they knew so that I might get a glimpse of them, an idea of what made them laugh, what and who they cared about and what were their proudest moments. Stories from lovers, children and friends with their versions of the person they all knew and often those who knew him best hear these stories for the first time too.

I consider this work the most important work that I do and I consider it an honour to have the trust of a family at such an important time. My fees start at £195 for a local funeral in West Wales which include all the work to write and deliver a bespoke ceremony. There is no charge for services for children.
