All cultural and spiritual beliefs are highly respected at Picaluna, so in addition to places of worship, we support families who are looking for more authentic choices to the traditional venues.
Picaluna is all about flexibility and choice, so if a crematorium chapel doesn’t feel like the right fit for you, you may like to try a more personalised venue, which offers a beautiful space for the ceremony and wake.
Some of these venues include surf clubs, golf clubs, local town halls, parks, beaches or you may like to consider having the funeral at home.
If you would like to know more, please don’t hesitate to ask.
"My brother Stuart and I were very fortunate to meet Sarah from Picaluna just after the passing of our father Derek. To be honest we were in a state of shock and had very little experience of death, funerals and the like and really didn't know what to do.
Sarah was so helpful and truly a wonderful guide in the options we had available to celebrate our fathers life. Her compassion and understanding helped immensely as we put together plans for Dad's cremation and small ceremony. We are really grateful to have been helped through this ordeal by Sarah, and would recommend her and Picaluna to anyone going through trying time. All the best Sarah."
