Thanks to BBC Wiltshire for asking me to come on the show and chat to Mark O’Donnell about Sentiment.
It seems the whole of the UK has gone funeral photography mad, we’ve had lots of calls from the press asking us to talk about funeral photography, but we’ve not gone ahead with many of the interviews because I like to explain to them that we do so much more than photography and that we’re not prepared to ask our clients to talk live on air or go on TV!!!
Talking to Mark O’Donnell was a pleasure he was really open to everything we do and he has obviously been researching the big wide world of funerals because he’s really knows about the options out there - they’ll been talking about funeral choices all week so listen in.
…And as I type my funeral photographer is on air with BBC Berkshire with Ann Diamond!!! go Rachel
Sentiment was set up on the idealistic of personalising the conveyer belt funeral, and giving the right options to the families who are having to go though the traumatic task of organising a loved one’s funeral. Our motivation for setting up such a unique business 4 and half years ago was hearing from families a very gracious ‘ thank you so much’ and knowing that we really have helped.
As mark O’Donnell said, there are so many options out there that it can be overwhelming to choose from, but we really try to ensure that our families are not overwhelmed , we want Sentiment to be that time where the family come together, reflect, the time where the photos come out and the good memory’s flow. We assist as much or as little in the preparations to make it as stressless as possible.
If a family want to choose their funeral to be filmed or photographed, if they want to show a tribute video or photo slideshow, have a memory book made or even film their own video messages and life documentaries then we are here to ensure they get that, without feeling overwhelmed, without feeling exploited, and always in control.

So did anyone watch Jades wedding on Living TV?I love a good wedding so settled down to watch the 2 hour episode – I cried my eyes out all the way through! what did you think?
There was a lovely photo slideshow / photo montage provided by her ‘best men’ – I love that photo montages are becoming the norm for weddings, funerals and anniversaries.

Two years ago I set up Sentiment Ltd. I suppose the idea came in many forms, things I’d seen on TV, a string of family funerals both good and bad, my own experience in event planning and production, my brain running overtime at 2am in the morning. It all just merged together and then ‘shabang’ I came up with the crazy idea of funky funerals and video production!!!
There is nothing in the world I love more than being able to bring comfort to people, make them smile, make them laugh or do something that overwhelms them. I like to push the barriers out, do something that will have a positive and lasting impact on people for the rest of their life. Allowing them to celebrate the life of the person they had lost in a way most befitting the person.
I think I had some sort of calling, not so much in the sense a priest or a vicar gets a calling. No god whispered in my dreams to tell me I was destined for greater things – just a true desire to offer people something more and perhaps change the traditional thinking around funerals.» Continue reading
