Funeral Service at Meilahden Kirkko

Nurmijärven Siunauskappeli Hautajaiset

Hietaniemen Krematoriokappeli

The interior of Meilahti Church offers warm and welcoming atmosphere. The church service was a beautiful and emotional ceremony. The reception was held at the parish hall, where friends and family gathered to remember and celebrate the life of the deceased.

Non-religious services at Hietaniemi Crematorium often start with a musical interlude and continue with obituary and poem readings. Family and friends of the deceased have the opportunity to say a last farewell, and lay flowers and wreaths to surround the coffin. At the end of the service the coffin slides slowly out of the chapel to the accompaniment of music.

The Nurmijarvi chapel, with its beautiful altar painting and comforting atmosphere, was the perfect setting for this intimate and emotional occasion. As I photographed the funeral, I couldn’t help but be struck by the peaceful atmosphere of the chapel. It truly is a special place.
