Celebrating our life, and shared humanity, free from faith.
“I have just returned from a humanist funeral ceremony conducted by Michael Laird. It was by a long way the most beautiful funeral ceremony I have ever attended, devoid of any mystical overtones. Heart-warming and soul-lifting, in a non-religious sense. It was remarkable.”
Prof. David Hand, Mortlake Crematorium, 2017
Thank you for considering me for your Humanist ceremony!
I am committed to the creation and delivery of highly personalised, authentic ceremonies for people who have chosen to live free of religious faith. I typically work anywhere within about an hour’s motorbike ride of home in Chiswick, London.
Weddings and Funerals are really important and emotional life events, and I am passionate that these events should be times to focus on individual lives and shared humanity.
I actively seek to create ceremonies that are as unique as those involved, and I am happy to consider and incorporate any ideas you may have, however unusual. I do ceremonies indoors, outdoors, any place, and any time of day or night.
In addition to wedding and funeral ceremonies, I also do memorials with or without ashes, and pet funerals. Talk to me about what you want, I am happy to explore the unconventional!
My clients tell me I have a reassuring and highly professional manner and an engaging nature – and that they feel safe in my hands. Apparently – I have a lovely voice!
