Holistic Civil Funeral & Family Celebrant

Hello, my name is Sue Anne O’Donnell, I am a Holistic Civil Funeral & Family Celebrant, and Grief Recovery Specialist based in Fethard, Co. Tipperary, Ireland.

I travel the length and breadth of the country with my work as a Civil Celebrant offering alternative ceremonies to suit your personal requirements. As an associate member of the Irish Association of Funeral Directors, I specialise in Funerals, Anniversaries and Memorials.

I passionately believe in celebrating all life’s events, the happy and the sad. From my own personal experience, I understand how important it is to honour those we love especially at the time of their death, in ways that are meaningful, while also allowing us a time and space to grieve.

"It's about the person, not the ritual." 

Each ceremony is personal, marking the life and passing of your loved one in a way that truly reflects and honours the essence of them and they gift they were in your life.

As your independent civil funeral and family celebrant, I write and deliver your alternative ceremony blending your specific wishes, culture, & traditions to create a unique ceremony, your way.

This means your Specific Civil Ceremony can be themed, spiritual, non-religious, semi-religious, as close to or as far removed from tradition.

Typically Alternative Civil Ceremonies are devoid of any religious or spiritual aspects, please rest assured as your Celebrant I’m happy to incorporate all aspects that are important to you.

It’s best to contact me directly on 0869239431 to make your Civil Ceremony Inquiry. I have added a brief description of some of the ceremonies below.

A comprehensive list of all ceremonies I offer can be found on my website:

Memorial Ceremonies

These typically take place at a date later than your loved ones funeral possibly due to Covid restrictions.

Living Ceremony

Some people receive the sad news that their time is limited. Organise a living ceremony to celebrate your life with your family and friends.

Funeral Ceremonies 

Paying homage to your loved one in a way that filled with meaning truly reflecting them and they gift they were in your life.

Anniversary Ceremonies 

During anniversary ceremonies we recall those we miss with deep love and affection through the stories and memories you share with me, I write and deliver intimate and personal Civil Ceremonies to remember your Loved one at the time of their anniversary or some times at the time of their birthday.

Grief Recovery Sessions

Grief is a perfectly natural and normal emotion to our loss.

Through a series of 7 one to one or group sessions with me you are totally supported as you uncover and discover what was previously left emotionally incomplete or unfinished with someone who has died or is no longer part of your life.

These sessions help you find a new meaning for life, making it easier to recall memories with love rather than pain, while also learning how powerful it is to be heard when sharing your story of loss in a non judgmental setting.

Please feel free to contact me directly on 0868239431 to arrange and book your sessions today. 

Available Nationwide.
