What is a Celebration of Life service?

A Celebration of Life service is exactly that – a way to cherish and celebrate the life of someone special that you have lost in a positive, uplifting way. It provides an alternative to a traditional funeral service by allowing you to embrace everything that made that person who they were, capturing their true essence and personality. This can be achieved through the use of colour, design, style, theme and wording to name but a few ways.

Why Joanne chose to introduce this range to Vintage Twee

Planning a funeral for someone you love is one of the hardest tasks you will ever face. Joanne lost her mum, Susan, in July 2017 at the age of 63 years old. She was a brave and beautiful woman who deserved a service as beautiful as she was. Joanne, her dad and her sister planned a completely individual celebration that left everyone telling them it was the best funeral they had ever been to. They found it helped keep their mindset focused, lifted their spirits and channelled the immense sadness they felt into creating something wonderful and deserving for Susan.

Celebration of Life services can be held for anyone of any age but we have found them to be particularly popular with people who have lost loved ones at a young age.

We have worked with an increasing amount of customers over the years who have requested our work for Celebration of Life ceremonies. After Joanne’s personal experience aswell, she decided to officially extend her range and create products for beautiful memorial services.
