We’ll help you find a beautiful and uplifting way to honour your loved ones

When a loved one passes away, we want to honour them and say goodbye with family and friends in a way that celebrates the life they lived. It used to be that funerals, sometimes dark and somber affairs, were the only way to serve this purpose.

A Celebration of Life is a modern and wonderful way to do it with love, thoughtfulness, and with our guiding help.

What is a Celebration of Life?

A Celebration of Life is an event that includes a service section and a reception section, but isn’t necessarily religious or in a church. The major difference between this event and a funeral, is that it’s a more personalized gathering with a more uplifting and positive tone. In other words, it’s an event that gives your friends and family a chance to honour and celebrate the joy that person brought to people during their life. Celebrations of Life can occur for burials or cremations, and can incorporate religion, if that suits you and your loved one.

The reception after the service gives people a chance to gather and support one another with love, laughter, and to honour your loved one. You can even incorporate a theme including some of the person’s likes, interests, hobbies, and favourite things. Another nice aspect? A Celebration of Life can be hosted anywhere, anytime. We have helped clients host Celebrations of Life in a variety of settings: golf courses, beaches, hotels, parks, and backyards.

In other words, there really are no hard and fast rules for Celebrations of Life. You can get out help to create an event that feels right for those closest to the person who passed away. With the help of an event planner who’s familiar with all of the details and the process. It’s stressful to plan an event while you’re mourning and taking care of other things, like end-of-life details. We gently and respectfully take care of every detail so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
