A Fitting Post Funeral Reception and Celebration of Life
At our reception venue family and friends can share their memories of their loved one in a more relaxed way than at the funeral ceremony.
The reception normally follows the funeral. It is often known as the gathering or the wake.
It is when those who attended the funeral and other less close relatives, friends, neighbours, former colleagues and other appropriate guests to share fond memories of the deceased and thus reduce the painful grieving.
The reception is the most popular way of bringing friends and family together to remember and reminisce, although memorial or celebratory parties can be held several weeks after the funeral, or on the anniversary of the birthday or death.
Let The Dower House plan your catered event in our comfortable, inviting and beautifully decorated venue. We can provide a simple tea service, buffet, luncheon or full catering as you require.
When a death occurs there is nothing like the comfort of loved ones to help you through the pain. That is why we offer lovely reception rooms and garden for your family and friends to gather, eat, embrace and share memories.
It can be difficult to find a restaurant last minute that can feed and comfortably sit a large group of people. Let us take care of the details so you donít have to.
We provide funeral catering for nearly all religious denominations. Our goal is to cater to the individual needs of each family and we consider it a privilege to come into their life's and serve them, their family and friends during their time of need. Please tend to your guests. The Dower House Catering will handle the rest.
