Full Description
Hi! I'm an Independent Celebrant who creates and delivers Tailor Made Wedding Ceremonies to perfectly reflect you, with no stiff, set wording. Imagine an individual, bespoke ceremony without any restrictions on location, time and style. Well that's exactly what you can have! You can have your Wedding Ceremony where and whenever you choose. No licence is required, just the land owners permission if it's private. Together we can create a totally unique ceremony that you and your guests will love and remember forever. As I am an Independent Celebrant I can, if you choose to, include Religious or Spiritual aspects. A Mini Ceremony is included within the fee. This could be a Handfasting, Sand Blending, Unity Candle, Rose or Gem Ceremony. There's lots of additional, personal aspects you can choose to include. We'll become friends and I will really get to know you both. You're free to write your own Vows if you would like to, or I am very happy to help. Lots of couples choose to include their Love Story, this is one of my favourite parts of creating the ceremony. I Officiate Weddings from Lands End to West London, Oxford to Dorset and everywhere in between. So do get in touch if you think we'd be a good fit. Some Feedback I have received - 'As soon as she started speaking, Claire lit up the room' Julia & David 'As soon as we started our Zoom call we knew she was the Celebrant for us' Anna & Tim 'It was like Claire knew Dad, her attention to detail was wonderful. This ceremony allowed me to cry' Mike (For a Memorial Service) I hate poor service! I am 100% committed to giving you the Day of your Dreams! People have described me as being Fun, Big Hearted, Creative, Free Spirit, Unique, & Totally bonkers! So if you think we'd get along I'd love to hear from you.

What is your most memorable wedding?

From random conversations I figured out that a bride really loved the Ice Cream man/van. So in a meeting helping the Groom with his vows I mentioned this to him and suggested he arrange for an Ice Cream man to come to the Ceremony. The Van arrived at the Barn, just as the Ceremony ended and the bride burst into happy tears!!!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Adventurous Boho Modern Bright Unconventional

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm not into tech at all. I'm more of a people person! However I built my business website myself!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't let Friends or Family push their opinions on you or put pressure on you. It's YOUR day!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love it when Couples include their pets. I have a Dog Ring Bearer this Summer.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I will arrange a no obligation Zoom meeting to give you the chance to check me out and see if I'm the Celebrant for you. We will chat about your plans for your special day. If you would like to go ahead a deposit will secure the date. I'll send you a fun couples questionnaire. This helps me get to know even more about you both. We'll schedule a meeting to go through your love story. Then I will get to work on your bespoke ceremony. We will be in touch at various points through out. Six weeks before your big day, we can take a final look at edits and final payment will be made.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?

One wedding in Summer 2021 I was asked to impersonate Moira Rose!! When I was a full time hairdresser I was asked to incorporate Rainbow belt sweets into a Bridesmaid's hair! It looked pretty cool to be honest! See anything goes and it always has with me!

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

I keep in regular contact with my couples and help out with non Ceremony related things where I can. If I can't answer a call I will aim to get back to you within 3 hours (during the day).

What do you love most about your job?

Stick to your budget. Enjoy it and try not to stress.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

The Kiss x
