My name is Clare and I am a fully qualified professional celebrant based in the Suffolk countryside, where I live with my grown up family.
I trained with Civil Ceremonies Ltd and hold the national NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Couples and Naming RQF.
I have a background in hotel hospitality management, working for many years in the industry before taking a career break to bring up my daughter.
My time with some of the top hotels in the UK was all about creating the very best experience possible for people, which I remain passionate about as a celebrant.
I have also always been a keen interior designer and love using my skills to plan and curate events. I am a great believer in meticulous attention to detail to create something perfect.
Whether you are planning a Wedding & Civil Partnership, Commitment Ceremony, Renewal of Vows or Naming Ceremony, I want you to have the best day possible. Your Ceremony is something special to remember and cherish forever and it is my role to help you achieve that.
As your Celebrant I will listen to your background and life stories and talk with you about your ideas and aspirations for your ceremony. If, once we have met, you decide that you would like to work with me, I will commence drafting a bespoke, personalised ceremony and script, working collaboratively with you on your ideas to create something completely unique and memorable.
Your Ceremony can be as unfussy and simplistic or as creative and romantic as you want, it can also be anything in-between. There are no rules or restrictions, you can include any combination of prayers and poems, readings, music or hymns, as well as any symbolic elements you may choose.
I am passionate about creating and conducting a Ceremony that is perfect for you. Once we have decided on the final draft we can meet, if you wish, for a rehearsal to ensure everything is just as you want it to be before the actual day. Being involved at such an intimate event is both an honour and a responsibility for me, your Ceremony is a moment in time of love and celebration and as your celebrant it is my privilege to deliver your Ceremony with warmth, joy and meaning.
I strongly believe everyone should be able to have the Ceremony of their choice, regardless of their personal beliefs or situation.
