Today I filmed a funeral for the Traveller Community in Tewkesbury, Cotswolds. This was a big funeral and such a lovely family who had lost someone who was a real cornerstone of their community.  Sarah's thanksgiving ceremony took place at Pershore Abbey which is a very beautiful church. As the hearse arrived the heavens opened, which is meant to be a good sign in the traveller community. When I say the heavens opened, I mean it really did throw it down but luckily I had my umbrella and someone held it for me as the coffin was carried into the church for the ceremony. 

After the ceremony it was off for the burial at Pershore Cemetery. Family and friends brought so many flowers. I have honestly never seen as many in all my life. The creativity behind them was incredible. There were caravans, Turkish delights, giant hearts made from roses, dogs, tv stands from her favourite shows, jam jars and much more, all made from flowers. Incredible!
