Hi, I'm Steve

I’m Steve, I’m not bound by any religion, statute or doctrine. So, I’m free to create and deliver personalised ceremonies embracing your beliefs or non-beliefs. ​​I will help to construct a Celebration of Life, based on the life of the person the ceremony is for – but should you choose to include any religious or spiritual wording, prayers or music, then that is fine too.

You can expect a highly professional, personal and engaging ceremony with lots of excellent ideas and not a bland ‘insert name here’ recital from a script – something which will include as much or as little ritual, symbolism and imagery as you wish.

What's my ceremony style?

Professional, mindful funeral ceremonies in any context, whether that be in a crematorium, a private chapel, a hotel, a woodland or outdoor pavilion, or even in your home.

Why choose Steve?

What you did for us was quite exceptional! Beautifully orchestrated.

You went above & beyond with communicating & liaising with us to ensure our mother’s funeral service went smoothly & was conducted just as we had wished.

​There is nothing at all workaday or formulaic about what Steve does. ​Every service is different, well thought out and very well presented. ​​​Our families love him. ​ – Independent Funeral Director

Funerals

​In 2003 my wife lost her daughter Katie to Glioblastoma, an aggressive type of cancer that occurs in the brain or spinal cord. She was six years old. It was an incredibly cruel end to a long two-year battle with the disease. We have been gripped by our loss ever since – and have resolved to devote the rest of our lives to helping people who experience loss and grief in whatever circumstances. We’re both fully qualified Counsellors and Grief Specialists.

Since Katie’s death, we have adopted the symbolism of the Dragonfly as a way of reminding ourselves of how special and unique she was. It has since become representative of my work as a Grief Specialist and Funeral Celebrant. And so, the Dragonfly for us represents going beyond what is on the surface and looking into the more profound implications of life. It is a symbol of new beginnings and so, represents hope, change, and love.

From the first meeting with Steve, I knew he got the essence of my mum, words can’t express how beautiful my mum’s service was.

Thank you so much for everything you did for my family.

At such a difficult time, Steve showed empathy and understanding; he listened, clearly understood who my brother was. Steve took away the pressure and produced a wonderful Order of Service, projected screen and video for during the service, he spoke with knowledge, care and understanding using words that supported our grief. All including those who were unable to join us due to numbers felt his personal embrace of our loss but had a story of life to tell. A great tribute to my brother.
