Symbolic activity helps us, together with friends and family, express our deepest thoughts and feelings about life’s most important events.

Using my creative background and training in the arts to craft bespoke ceremonies.
When someone dies it can be overwhelming and may feel as though we have also lost a part of ourselves. Using my creative background and training in the arts I will work with you to help create a meaningful and moving ceremony to honour the person who has died and to support you in your grief. I do this by creating bespoke ceremonies that put the person who has died at the heart of the ritual to start the process of gently saying goodbye.
Standard Funeral Ceremony £250 which includes:
Meeting with the chosen spokesperson (a family member of friend) to listen and draw out the story of the person who has died.
Guide you in creative ways to personalise the ceremony
Write a ceremony and eulogy in partnership with you
Send a draft copy to you to make any changes
Lead the ceremony on the day
Give you a copy of the transcript to share with family and friends.
Memorial Ceremony starts at £300 (£200 if I conducted the funeral ceremony)
Please pop into the gallery on Saturday's between 12.00 - 16.00 for a free consultation to discuss how we can work together or call Lucy Willow on 07802 404258 to make an appointment.
I work closely with families to take final photographs of loved ones during their last days of life or in the Chapel of Rest following death. To be there to witness such a moment can be humbling and fulfilling and one that some would like preserved. For the past three years I have been a volunteer with The Compassionate Friends Charity. I have met parents who have expressed a desire to photograph their children during their last hours of life and in death. Often the taboo of photographing someone in the last stages of life and in death prevents them from doing so yet it is part of the family story and can help place loved ones who have died in our ongoing life.
