Hi, I’m Caroline James

and I hope you will choose me as your personal Funeral Event Planner.

Throughout my life I have been a keen organiser and I love the buzz of arranging successful events which have a creative and original edge. I have arranged funerals, weddings, art exhibitions, balls, large charitable parties and many other unique occasions.

Now is the time for me to make a difference to you.

The Possibilities are Endless


Creativity doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, this option often proves less costly overall depending of course, on your choices.

I accept commissions from all around England. I have partnered up with some of the best funeral directors, celebrants and professionals in the country to bring YOU the very best.

I will also create a bespoke ceremony for a standard cremation service or natural burial if you wish to engage me. Just send me a message or give me a call for more info and we will make a plan.
