We are event specialists that help people to celebrate the life of a loved one.

Funerals 

We help families navigate the preparation for a funeral by providing hands-on support in a variety of practical ways, helping them to have meaningful experiences around the time of their loss, rather than the stress and exhaustion of long ‘to-do’ lists.

Memorial and Remembrance Events

We create and manage memorial and remembrance events for families, individuals, community groups and organisations to honour your loved one, celebrate their life and gather together friends and family to pay tribute.

With many years experience as event managers, Dara and Louise specialise in a compassionate approach coupled with a complete planning and coordination service so that you can focus on being present without thinking about the event details, the stress of ‘to-do’ lists or worry about what comes next.

FUNERAL COORDINATION

Funerals, though sad and difficult, offer us a special opportunity to celebrate life, remember a special person and evoke meaningful memories.

For many reasons, funerals can be a challenging time for a family and extra help can be required.  At RHEA, we are here to do the work for you.  We work in co-operation with service providers , from the undertaker to reception venue, musicians, florist and more to create a personalised and bespoke funeral that helps you say your best goodbye.

We have the professional expertise to design and deliver a special funeral occasion that best remembers and celebrates your loved one, meets your needs, and incorporates your preferences and beliefs while overseeing the smooth running of the events ensuring every detail and task is seen to and that everything runs smoothly over the course of the funeral days.

We can support the work of your undertaker by taking on the tasks you and your family might otherwise do, such as:

  • Help you with choices of reception venues, catering, floristry and manage all the arrangements for these
  • Work with musicians and singers to help choose music that will best complement your funeral events
  • Coordinate your celebrants, readers and the family and friends participating in the funeral to ensure they are fully prepared and comfortable in their role
  • Help you personalise the various funeral ceremonies and events with meaningful readings, prayers, poems, offertory gifts, and other features
  • Provide an on-the-day supervision and co-ordination service, staying one step ahead to ensure everything is in place so that you and your family do not need to manage events as the day unfolds
  • Coordinate supplier bookings, orders, deliveries and other logistics that arise over the course of the few days
  • And more to ensure your wishes are met and arranged.

They were there on the day to guide us through the memorial meaning we could be truly present (and less stressed) …We will be forever grateful to Dara and Louise for taking  such good care of us and helping us create an incredibly special event that we will always treasure.”

RHEA helped our family to organise a memorial for our daughter Arwen , who we lost at the start of the pandemic in 2020.   Louise and Dara supported us every step of the way and had many suggestions in how we could make the memorial special and unique.  They had a genuine interest in getting to know who Arwen was to ensure that her spirit embodied the event itself. RHEA showed sensitivity, compassion, professionalism, organisation and attention to detail. They were there on the day to guide us through the memorial meaning we could be truly present (and less stressed) knowing that the logistics were in their safe hands. We will be forever grateful to Dara and Louise for taking  such good care of us and helping us create an incredibly special event that we will always treasure.
