Private services were held this afternoon in upstate New York for actress Natasha Richardson, who died following a freak skiing accident last week. 

Richardson's funeral was held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Millbrook, N.Y., near the family's 19th century farmhouse where she lived with her husband Liam Neeson and their two sons.   She's being buried in a nearby cemetery.

Neeson was among the pallbearers for her coffin as it was taken into the church. He arrived with his sons and mother-in-law, Vanessa Redgrave. Other stars at the funeral include actor Ralph Fiennes. 

The service was open only to family and close friends. 

Richardson's mahogany coffin — emblazoned with an Irish claddagh symbol, signifying love, friendship and loyalty — was driven Saturday from the couple's  Manhattan townhouse to their home near Millbrook where she had married Neeson in July 1994.
