Shortlist ...

Hi, I'm Revd. John

I embrace and honour all faiths and none. I do funerals and weddings for every faith and for every nationality. Distance is never a problem and have so far done more than 500 funeral services in the London, Essex and Hertfordshire area. Plus numerous weddings, even one in Sarajevo, Bosnia, in the City Hall! I am an ordained multi-faith minster, Pilgrimage walker and author.

What's my ceremony style?

Multi-Faith minister with no boundaries or limits. I help create a unique and special service. I can produce the Order of Service. At the end of the service I give you a file on the service, so you know what words have been said.

Why choose Revd. John?

I come in with a blank sheet of paper and create a unique service. For Funerals I write the tribute (if requested), arrange the music, help select the hymns and poems etc to make it a thanksgiving and celebration of that persons life. All is done with care. Weddings take longer to piece together with many meetings and a dress rehearsal to ensure all is perfect for the day.

What do I offer?



Anyone couple who are truly in love and committed to each other.
Can be inside or out.
I have no reservations.

The complete service. Arranging the music, words and helping write the vows.
Can print the Order of Service and give the couple a file with all the words said at the service to keep.

Services for any faith and none. I work with more than 40 Funeral Directors in London, Essex and Hertfordshire and beyond.
Services in Crematorium Chapels, graveside. Both Cremations and burials.
Ashes internment.

Meet the family and piece the service together. Write the tribute, if requested, and check with them for corrections and amendments. Nothing is too much trouble. Laise with the Funeral Director; arrange the music, give the family a complete copy of the service, so they know all the words spoken. Help the family to choose the music, poems, hymns etc., Can print the Order of Service. I have no limits so the service is crafted exactly as you would like. I wear robes or suit, shirt , football scares, or even a rugby shirt to suit the occasion.

Hello John,
Thank you so much for your emails. Your tribute left both Sonia and myself weeping, so you definitely captures a great deal about our Mama. The non Religious Funeral Prayer is wonderful and encapsulates how we feel – and `know Mama would love it – so please go with that one.
Thank you and all the best as ever, Yolanda and Sonia
