With Nature

The concept of being at one with nature when we say our final goodbyes is becoming increasingly popular in the UK and, as a result, outdoor funerals have become far more commonplace. For many, this takes the form of a natural burial, while others choose to hold a celebration of life ceremony in an outdoor location of their choice – perhaps in a woodland, field, garden, beach, or somewhere that held meaning for the deceased.

If the idea of an outdoor funeral ceremony sounds right for you, then stick with us. We hope to answer your questions and make the planning process as easy and stress-free as possible with our outdoor funeral guides and dedicated directories of ceremony venues and suppliers.

The ethos behind a natural burial (often called a woodland burial) is to return the body to the earth in a natural way with a completely environmentally friendly burial or interment of ashes. A natural burial ground could be the perfect option for those who are environmentally conscious or are looking for somewhere peaceful and beautiful to say goodbye and celebrate a life. Ceremonies at natural burial grounds usually take place outdoors, but many sites also provide indoor options if needed.

Choosing a celebrant to plan and conduct the funeral allows you to create a truly personal ceremony. Celebrants will work closely with you in the days leading up to the funeral. They will guide you through the process and provide you with ideas wherever needed for eulogies, readings and music.

Celebrants can conduct outdoor funerals at crematoriums or natural burial grounds, or celebration of life ceremonies at any venue you choose. They will also usually be happy to include both secular and religious elements.

To find out more about celebrants you may wish to read our Guide to Celebrants article. Or use the search bar below to find your perfect match from our directory of professional, qualified celebrants.

A marquee or tipi can be the perfect choice for a post-ceremony reception or wake, and as a back-up option for the ceremony itself. Use the search bar below to find marquee and tipi suppliers near you.
