Virtual Memorial Ceremonies
I understand that not being able to say goodbye to a loved one and offer them due respect and ceremony at their passing just adds to the heartache. I am therefore offering virtual memorial services where people can gather on-line and participate in a full celebration of life ceremony, one that fully honours and cherishes the memory of the person who has died. I hope these ceremonies will offer at least some comfort and closure for relatives and friends who may not have been able to attend the funeral or cremation, or even visit their loved one in hospital.
These ceremonies can be religious or secular, or contain aspects of both. I will work with you as always to find the best way to truly honour your departed loved one.
With love and light, Chrissie
Celebrant, Ritualist and Soul Midwife Chrissie Lloyd offers beautiful, tailored and memorable weddings, funerals, baby naming ceremonies, and pet funerals. In fact, any coming-of-age, rite of passage, or life transition, where you need to mark an occasion with love, joy, celebration, appropriate ritual, due ceremony and great respect.
A life-long ritual maker, Chrissie believes that ritual is more important than ever in these secular times. She is a nature lover who works with natural elements such as crystals, flowers, and trees, to add beauty, meaning and depth to the ceremony.
Funerals and Memorial Services
The death of someone we love is one of the most difficult experiences we will ever have to face, and as a trained Celebrant, Chrissie will work sensitively and appropriately with you and your family, so that together you can create a beautiful, dignified and profound funeral service for your departed loved one.
In our society we do not have rituals or ceremonies in place to acknowledge the type of loss and the grief that comes with miscarriage. If you have suffered any kind of pregnancy loss, at whatever stage, Chrissie will help you create a highly personal ceremony to cherish and honour the tiny life that was lost before it had barely begun.

An animal lover, who understands how painful it can be to lose a pet, Chrissie will help you to create a ceremony for your beloved friend that is as meaningful and respectful as any other funeral service, and as special as your pet was to you.
