How to prepare a memorial video (and why it’s good to do it yourself.)
Learn how to prepare a memorial video online, in a few simple steps, without receiving more visitors, chasing prices or suppliers, and benefit from healing power this moment of reflection provides.
It can be a very challenging, emotionally draining time, in the midst of preparing for a funeral. Even with the most caring and helpful Funeral Director or Celebrant, there is so much you are left to work out on your own.
Many memorial services, life celebrations and traditional funerals, now include a visual tribute. These generally present a slideshow of photos over the lifetime of the deceased. They can be a wonderful expression of their life and a beautiful way to share memories with gathered family and friends. Played as a welcome, during the eulogy or at the end of the service, they also provide a moment of reflection. Many people find this helpful in dealing with their loss.
In our experience, preparing the memorial video personally, provided an important and highly rewarding moment of reflection. Rather than sending the pictures away to someone you’ve never met to edit. Looking through the pictures, remembering and sharing the moments with family and ultimately, choosing which to use was helpful. It helped us deal with our grief, but also to remember the life we shared. Read more about our experience here.
