Celebration of Adoption

Welcoming a child into a family whether by birth, adoption, or marriage is a time for celebration.

Many families want to mark this moment with a ceremony which speaks of who they are and what they believe.

As these ceremonies have no legal status they can be held at a time and place of your choice.

Each ceremony is created with you to ensure the uniqueness of your family is celebrated.

Why choose Joanne D for your funeral?

Losing someone you love is difficult. I will work closely with you to create a ceremony that reflects respectfully on the life of the person who has passed away and gives a voice to those who mourn.

Together we will find the words, music and memories you feel will be most appropriate to be part of the ceremony.

Trying to say all that you wish within the time constraints of a Crematorium setting can be challenging. I am happy to explore alternatives with you.

These could be, but not limited to:

A more comprehensive eulogy and an opportunity for others to share their memories at the wake after the committal.

A memorial at a time after the funeral.

A memorial on a significant date after the funeral

Wedding | 08/19/2021 | Lumley Castle

Before we met Joanne, we had no idea about the wedding process. She gave us lots of advice regarding the ceremony and listen patiently to our needs. She also recommend songs for our ceremony after knowing our requirements. she was very professional, patient and showed a great sense of responsibility which allowed our wedding ceremony to be perfect and unforgettable.
I would recommend her to all my friends who are getting married.

Thank you so much Joanne, for helping to make our Wedding day so special. You really understood what we were after with the ceremony and helped set an ideal tone for the afternoon. We can’t tell you how many people came up to us afterwards to tell us how amazing you were and we got so may comments afterwards about what a beautiful ceremony it was. Everything you did in the few month lead up to our Wedding ran smoothly and we were very confident that we were in good hands. You have a beautiful presence which made us feel at ease right from the beginning up until the big day. We thank you for your wonderful and important contribution to make our Wedding day no less than perfect.
