Hi, I'm Clive

I am an established, creative celebrant with experience in the media! I live in based in THE Isle of Man and London, England and will travel as well, so you’ll often find me taking Funerals, Weddings and other services operating in these areas, with over 20 years of experience in creating unique celebrations of life events for over the last 20 years.

What's my ceremony style?

I love to design and create a ceremony that reflects the people’s love story: whether that be traditional or modern, formal or informal, relaxed or intimate are more prominent in scale ceremonies. Whatever the style of ceremony you want to create, they are always made with love I can draw on experience to ensure the ceremony perfectly reflects your tastes and beliefs.

Weddings

Every couple I work with is special, getting to know a couple who are very much in love, is such a privilege. I was recently asked what’s your favourite type of wedding, every wedding is unique from a small intermate to a wedding with 200 plus people, I love them ALL from Barns to Tipis to stately homes , oh and sharing stories.

Your ceremony is the most important part of your wedding day. The moment you make promises that will last a lifetime. It should celebrate your love story, be uplifting memorable, not just the boring bit before the fabulous party! Choosing a celebrant to write & conduct your ceremony means you can have your special day almost anywhere, anytime and exactly how you both want it. Simple, traditional, romantic or a lively, fun-filled festival, the choice is yours. Working closely with you, I will create a ceremony that reflects your style & personality, which celebrates your story; as a couple, there are no rules! Your vows are the heart of your wedding ceremony; whether making them for the first time or renewing them & you have the opportunity to write your own, repeat more traditional vows, or use a combination, I’m here to guide you with your celebration.

Why choose Clive for your wedding?

Congratulations! You have decided to take the extraordinary step of marriage or a civil partnership, and whether you want to make your commitments in a hotel, on the beach, in ancient woodlands, or in your own home or garden, it is all possible with a celebrant led ceremony.
I offer a free meeting or Zoom meeting and, if you decide I am the right celebrant for you, we will work together to create a unique wedding ceremony tailored around your individual personalities; there are no restrictions on content or style. Whatever makes it perfect for you will be perfect for me.

Naming Ceremony

Naming Ceremonies

I like a growing number of parents who would like to celebrate the arrival of your child but have decided against a christening; alternatives such as a church blessing, naming ceremony, or simple “naming day” are becoming increasingly popular. I can create and lead a celebration service that reflects you and your family’s values at a time and place of your choosing.

As a celebrant, I will spend time getting to know your family to conduct a personal and meaningful ceremony together. We can discuss readings, poems and other details you might want to include.
During the ceremony, parents state their love and commitment to their child, acknowledge the role of family and friends, and declare hopes for their child’s future.
Ceremonies can be combined with symbolic actions that have meaning to the family, such as sand ceremonies, tree-planting, candle-lighting, or hand or foot-printing.
Celebrations may vary in length from 20 minutes to an all-day celebration. Naming ceremonies are suitable for babies, toddlers, older children, adopted children, and stepchildren.

Renewal of Vows

Your love story may have been one that’s lasted many years; sometimes, it seems appropriate to renew those promises that you made to each other and acknowledge the journey you have taken together. A Renewal of vows celebration will allow you to affirm your love and involve the family and friends that have shared story in the celebration

Funerals

Working with families and friends or local funeral directors, I though been involved in funerals from Essex to Bristols, Merseyside to Devon; what matters is being there for the family and friends and helping them create a fitting Farwell to listen and give advice when needed. At a time that they need.

I have over 20 years of experience supporting families and individuals in times of great sadness and loss.
I can use my experience to create a unique celebration of your loved one’s life. The ceremony can include religious elements, using traditional or more contemporary prayers, readings, and music. It can be totally non-religious. I can blend multiple elements.
I aim to honour the life of a loved one in a fitting and personal way: while supporting those who are bereaved.

from £220

Why choose Clive for your funeral?

The loss of a loved one should always be marked by a ceremony or a memorial service that reflects their personality and life. The funeral should incorporate their beliefs and elements of their culture as your celebrant led funeral can be created to blend multiple elements to celebrate the life of the loved one. Each funeral is unique. My experience can support you in expressing the loss of a loved one. Having experienced my own losses, I understand your needs at this emotional time, so I am to offer you all the support and space you need.

The most magical day

Wedding | 09/05/2022 | Houchins Wedding Venue

We could not of asked for a better celebrant! Clive was great from start to finish! Clive’s organisation skills were always immaculate. As soon as we booked Clive, we arranged a zoom meeting and we all got to know each other. Clive asked us what type of ceremony we wanted and that was exactly what we got. Clive found out all about us and included this within his ceremony.
When Clive involved our 3 year old son into our ceremony. It was the absolute highlight and made our day even more special. Thank you so much Clive for everything!

Wedding | 08/26/2022 | Downhall Hotel and Spa

I’m so pleased we booked Clive as our celebrant. We actually got married last year in a registry office but did our big reception this year and booked Clive to carry out the ceremony. Clive arrived two hours early and helped me calm my nerves. The ceremony was beautiful and Clive said some lovely words. It was so special and I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you Clive

We have known Clive for many years as he did a wonderful christening for our eldest daughter…he has just done our youngest daughter naming ceremony plus our wedding vows on same day (kept secret from everyone!) Clive goes above and beyond to make the day so special for the whole family.. his words thoughts sentiment and humour just make for a wonderful service and day. He makes the main part of the day stress free and his warmth and caring nature shines through..he is amazing and would recommend him to anyone looking for a celebrant…
