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

Where do I even start? I believe Joanne may be the kindest person I have ever met. We consider ourselves truly lucky to have had her as our celebrant. From early planning to the final moments during our ceremony she was a calm, competent “rock” for us, guiding us through it all – even our baby daughter crying during the ceremony. I could not recommend her enough. Thank you so much, Joanne!
