Project Description

In Loving Memory are a new small business offering bespoke Order of Service Funeral Booklets.

It’s not easy when we lose someone special and, at this time of grief, making arrangements can be difficult. In Loving Memory provide a unique service, advising and creating a beautiful Order of Service Funeral Booklet that is both personal and a fitting tribute to our loved ones that you will want to keep and treasure as a beautiful lasting memento.

The Challenge

Funerals are never easy occasions to attend or to organise. Pylon Design were asked to design and produce a bespoke Order of Service Funeral Booklet for the funeral of Mark and Jean. Mark and Jean were married for nearly 61 years and when they passed away just two days between each other, this was truly ‘A Lifetime of Love’.

Due to the close proximity of Mark and Jean’s deaths, the family decided to have a dual funeral which because of the logistics created a delay in the final funeral date. The complexity of bringing together, and celebrating, two lives within one booklet was the real challenge and equally including Mark and Jean’s early lives as well as their lives as a married couple. The choice of hymns, readings and music would also be a challenge in reflecting both of their lives.

The Solution

Pylon Design and In Loving Memory wanted to create a look and feel that could be used across a range of products within a suggested package of items for the funeral and the booklet continued the theme that the invite initiated.

Pylon Design approached the family to collect as much information and photographs of Mark and Jean to create a booklet that celebrated their individual lives and together as a couple. The supplied photos gave an overall picture of their lives from growing up within their own families, to courting, their marriage, their children, family holidays, their hobbies, cruising holidays together and their grandchildren. It was a complete history from their beginning to the end.

Intertwined with the hymns, readings and prayers, Pylon Design created a beautiful, elegant booklet that demonstrated their full and rich lives and the love they shared for each other. It was clear from the final booklet that this was a couple deeply in love, a true ‘Lifetime of Love’, a phrase adopted and used for the other elements of the celebration.
