Celebrant Steve Game-Blackmoor
I arrange and preside over a mindful, modern funeral ceremony; embracing your memories and celebrating the life of the person you love; in a way which gives emphasis to creating atmosphere, where presence, awareness, and compassion abide; and at the same time respectfully embracing secular or multicultural beliefs.
I am always very happy to discuss any questions you may have without obligation. Furthermore, for some reassurance, do take a look at my 'Feedback, Reviews and Observations,' area - this should give you a little insight into the values and standards I set myself.
What's more, I have a combined degree in Applied Theology and Psychology, I'm a Senior Member of the ACCPH and I previously served as a Local Minister in the Anglican Church up until 2014. But since then, I have trained as a 'Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Practitioner' and Life-Coach and set up a group called Holding Dear in 2017, which now provides 'Free at the point of use' grief counselling when needed with highly trained professional counsellors. This service will be made available to you should you or a member of your family feel they need this support.
All in all, you have over 20 years experience and continued professional development at hand to help you.
You may wish to opt for a Simple Ceremony or a Celebration of Life, or a Semi-Religious/Spiritual Ceremony, or even a woodland burial, either of which may include:
"There is nothing at all workaday or formulaic about what Steve does. Every service is different, well thought out and very well presented. Our families love him." - Independent Funeral Director
The easiest way to make a booking is to let your appointed Funeral Director know I will be leading the service and they will do the rest.
Before the day of the funeral, I prefer to meet you at your home to discuss the ceremony if at all possible. Or we may meet via Zoom, WhatsApp or Facetime instead if you prefer.
