And end of a an era
I’m stepping away from taking anymore weddings to focus completely on my funeral and bereavement support work. This is a big decision as I love taking weddings, and was delighted to receive an industry award, but I'm sure it’s the right one.
As well as preparing and leading several funerals each week, I host an online bereavement support group (Love & Loss - Tuesdays 5.30pm) and am about to launch a new six part course for people who are bereaved (starts 7 June in Ilkley as a pilot). So for well-being and life balance as well as more time to develop the emphasis on these other aspects of work, it’s time for me to say goodbye to future weddings.
One thing my day to day connections with grieving families reminds me is this: love the life you have, and don’t miss a single day.
If you already have your wedding booked with me, don't worry - I'm of course fulfilling all of those weddings already in my diary.
Love & Loss
I'll be leading a new course on bereavement starting 7 June 2021 at Ilkley. See here for more.
