Celebration of Life & Funeral Reception Venue
When preparing to farewell a loved one, there’s a desire for the occasion to be marked not entirely by sadness, but with warmth, love and light. Our venue has been designed with these values in mind, to ensure your loved one’s Celebration of Life is the very best it can be. We take as much of the organizational stress off you and your family as possible during this difficult time, while also remaining sensitive to budget concerns.
We’re here to support you throughout the day as much as we can, from floral arrangements to audio visual equipment required for slideshows, music, eulogies and speeches. We also encourage personal touches to truly and authentically represent the spirit of the departed. Our team offers multiple packages to tailor each venue, service and menu for family traditions.
We also understand that sometimes our loved ones can leave us quite suddenly, which doesn’t give the family the benefit of time for organization. At Celebrations on the River, short lead times aren’t a problem. Should your desired venue be available on the desired day, we can be ready to host you and your loved ones immediately – no mess, no fuss and rest assured, you will be well looked after If your desired room isn’t free, we’ll be happy to show you through rooms that are available and work with you to craft the most special memorial.
