Wendy HaynesQuotation MarkI love my work and have been passionate about celebrancy since I was appointed in 1995.
It's been an inspiring and rewarding journey working side by side with many couples and families creating personal, unique and heartwarming ceremonies that have touched not only the couple but everyone present. 
Whether your celebration is a wedding ceremony, name giving ceremony, funeral, birthday celebration, or any other of life's 'touchpoints', I can help you to make it unforgettable, exciting, relaxed and friendly and, most of all, fun and inspiring."Wendy Haynes Signature

Funeral preparations before you die?

I have just had the pleasure of meeting with a wonderful lady in her eighties who has made most of funeral preparations. There are some things she is definite about wanting and other aspects that she is happy if her four children decide. Her family think it is all a bit strange as she is still fit and healthy and leading a rich life. 

It can be hard for families to discuss death and funeral plans and yet, given my own mothers death recently, what a blessing it is when many of the choices are made. My mum chose her readings, her music and even wrote her eulogy with me. It was great fun to hear her tell her stories... and the insights I received were heartwarming. How else could I have written about her feeling misty eyed the first time she saw dad on 'point duty' as a young policeman. Dad wouldn't have recalled that delightful moment! 

Anyway, I hope that if you are reading this you will consider what you would like. And if you need some help, then my book, Inspiring Funeral and Memorial Services will provide inspiration and a step by step guide to your ceremony options. There are contributions from five different celebrants which makes for a great read.
