Celebration Of Life

When it comes to honouring a life and legacy expectations have changed. Today, many families seek ceremonies that are sophisticated, unique and meaningful.

Kinwood produces obsessively-crafted, highly-curated celebration of life events.

How Does A Celebration Of Life Event Work At Kinwood?

Understanding The Life

We first meet with families to understand the person being memorialized and what they want to accomplish with their event. Kinwood often works with multiple families and family members to distil the event’s themes and goals. Kinwood will take your ideas and develop extraordinary events and memories.

Creative Approach

Your ideas and themes are used to develop creative territories for consideration. Kinwood typically presents three distinct creative approaches for the event. Clients can choose a single idea, or select aspects from all territories. Logistical decisions like location selection, activation plan, catering, and transportation are all designed in support the creative approach.


Kinwood works with families to select a qualified friend or family member to emcee the event. For all speakers, we will refine content and provide coaching. Kinwood leads a personalization exercise to settle on elements like music, props, attendee gifts, all connected to the deceased. We also like to weigh-in on wardrobe and styling choices.

In-Show Production

Kinwood works with clients to produce a run-of-show program to guide the event. Behind the scenes, our in-show director will manage the mechanics and crew, ensuring your event feels effortless. All Kinwood productions include location management, permits, sound/lighting, décor, and photography.


Communications Support

Kinwood will manage all communications for your Celebration of Life event. Whether that be social media content and support, or a more sophisticated earned media plan. And yes, we manage the invitations and thank-you notes.


Production Budget

Because all Kinwood projects are custom, the size and scope of the event will drive the majority of the costs. Kinwood charges a creative and management fee on top of the hard costs for your Celebration of Life event.
