Frequently asked questions.

Can we use our own Celebrant?

We can certainly customise your Bare Funeral or Memorial package to include your own celebrant or member of the clergy. You will only pay for the service elements you need, so the cost of the celebrant will be deducted from your package.

Is food included at a Bare Funeral or Memorial?

Catering is an optional extra, as some families choose not to provide any catering. We will tailor our venue recommendations to your preference, as some venues require catering, such as restaurants.

Can I have a Bare Funeral or Memorial live streamed and/or recorded?

Live Streaming and recording of a service is a lovely way to include those who cannot attend in person. This is an optional extra and usually costs around $600-$900 if you’d like a service professional to attend and record. 

At some venues, live streaming and recording is provided free of charge. Our friendly team can help you locate a venue with this inclusion.

How soon can I plan a memorial?

As a memorial service does not have the coffin present it can take place at any time.  

We do request at least 7 days however to plan the memorial, as it required securing a venue, meeting with a celebrant and organising the many features of the day. If you wish to have the ashes of your loved one present at the memorial we would also need to have the memorial booked on a date that ensures their ashes are available to come back to the family.  

Giving yourself time and not feeling rushed is something we feel is quite important for you at a time like this.

What does the Celebrant do at a Bare Funeral or Memorial?

A celebrant is the person entrusted with bringing the story of your loved one out in all its richness. Your celebrant will meet with you in person prior to the service to help plan the Order of Service; who will speak, what they might like to say, what poems or passages will be read, and more. On the day, your celebrant ensures the smooth running of your service and supports your family every step of the way. ​

All Bare Funeral packages include a celebrant to plan the service, as well as officiate the service on the day. Your Bare Arranger will recommend a celebrant based on an understanding of your family and your loved one. You will always remember the celebrant who celebrated your loved one's life, so we take great care in our selections.

What is the Photo Slideshow?

Photo presentations allow for the sharing of rich and intimate moments with everyone gathered at the funeral or memorial service. Accompanying music allows you to share your loved one's favourite songs. We recommend that families include a wide variety of photos of all stages of your loved one’s life.

​Your arranger will work with you to create a slideshow to be played at the service.  You'll need to provide us with the photos and select the music you'd like to be played. We recommend showing about 40 photos per song, and playing 1-2 songs. If you only have a few photos, this is fine. We can even show one still photo while a song is played, to allow your guests a time of reflection.

Do I have to display the ashes in an urn at a Memorial?

This is a very personal decision that will be respected by your memorial arranger in either case. The ashes can provide a tangible representation of your loved one, and they may form part of a special moment in the service for everyone to pay their respects to the deceased.  Many families choose not to bring the urn, and instead, display a large framed photo to represent the life of their loved one.

Do I have to have flowers at a Bare Funeral or Memorial?

A large vase of flowers is provided as part of your Bare Funeral or Bare Memorial package and can be a beautiful way to add a touch of colour to a service. You might also consider complimenting the flowers with a personal touch of your own; lots of families get creative when it comes to honouring their loved one, so feel welcome to add an array of photos, letters, books and other unique mementos that speak to your loved one’s story.
