Celebrant, Funeral Director

When we lose a loved one, the grief can often feel overwhelming. Having a professional to walk alongside you and guide you through the process of planning their funeral with compassion and empathy can make all the difference.

Oliver is an experienced celebrant with years of training and experience, allowing him to deal with any and all situations. His warmth, humour and intuition will provide you with the comfort and relief you need.

With particular attention to detail, Oliver prides himself on paying respect to the life that was lived, and seeks to understand the person in order to tell their story and create a unique and modern ceremony.

As a director, a celebrant and a fellow human being, Oliver is happy to work with people of all cultures, religions, and groups to guide friends and families through the entire process with utmost respect and sensitivity.

“”I can’t tell you how delighted we were with the service that Oliver gave us for our father’s funeral. No fake sympathy, no pushiness, always respectful of Mum’s religious needs and most importantly, making sure that Mum had everything as she wanted it.” S.L – July, 2020.

“”We highly recommend Picaluna for anyone who has the unfortunate task of organising a funeral for a loved one. Oliver was amazing, we felt cared for, understood and we were able to celebrate the life of my brother the way we intended. Oliver understood and celebrated our more unconventional ideas. We feel he definitely upholds his values of respecting the life that was lived, and understanding what Jeremy meant to us. We didn’t want to be forced into a standard funeral from the usual run of the mill funeral companies and Picaluna definitely did not do that. Thank you Oliver and Picaluna for making a difficult time a little less difficult.””
