Michelle McCann – Civil Celebrant, and Funeral Celebrant in Dorset and surrounding areas.

Do you want a service that is unforgettable, that you can treasure forever the memory of that day. A service that is as special and unique as you and your family.

Planning a wonderful and fitting service is an art, and today many of us are asking for a more personal way, there is no right and no wrong just your way.

I will come to your home and together we will create that service, we will look at photos, select poems, readings, music and anything else that is important to you.

I will design the service and send to you, only when it’s perfect for you is it ready.

So on the day it can be personal, meaningful and relaxed – as the day is about memories.

Death Cafe

I have started to run a Death Cafe. Talking about death is seen as the last taboo and not something people are willing to talk about.

At the death cafe we speak about death and dying as natural part of life, and discussions vary from, what music would you want at your funeral, grief and grieving, and cryonics.

It is not a self help or bereavement group, just a place for the curious, the realistic and slightly worried. As the name suggests we chat over a tea or coffee or glass or wine and eat cake.

Contact me if you would like to come along to the next one.

Workshop – create your own funeral service

In workshops of no more than 5, over 5 weeks we will create your service. In a group we can give each other ideas and possibilities perhaps not considered.

It may sound bizarre or a bit unnecessary, but do your loved ones know the music you want the poems you loved, do they really know the story of your life ? Create your own service telling your story in your words. It could really help your family at a time when they are immersed in grief and not able to think straight or perhaps there are many family members who want different things for you. By writing your own service you can be sure everyone knows what you want.

If you prefer I can do this on a 1:1 basis – contact me for more information.
