When choosing the right venue option for a funeral service or memorial ceremony, there are many elements to consider when creating the style of ceremony you would like that would work best for your chosen venue.
What is the capacity of the venue?
Will there be rituals that need to take place outside? (E.g. smoking ceremony before entering a space, burning notes or planting a tree..)
How will the music be played?
What area will form the backdrop to the ceremony?
Will slideshows be part of the ceremony or wake or both?
Will the space be connected to nature?
Will there be tributes involving candles, coffin decoration or live music?
Will the location be a part of religious services?
Will there be catering or refreshments for attendees?
What is the access like to the ceremony location? (E.g. is there wheelchair access required?)
Is there sufficient parking?
Is the location easy to find?
