I like to create something just for you - let's see if we can come up with something that's never been done before! But I'm more than happy with traditional rituals.

Hi, I'm Gibb

Hi, I’m Gibb, and not only am I a bit of a ‘gearhead’, I’m an enthusiastic and creative wedding and family celebrant.

Let me help you create your perfect celebration!

We’ve all attended ceremonies which pretty much adhere to the same format, and have come away with a ‘Well that was nice’ feeling. So why would you want that for your ceremony? You’re unique, so is your relationship, so why not have a ceremony that is tailor-made to reflect that uniqueness, your personality, your passions and your life?

You deserve more than ‘That was nice’ !

If you’re passionate about the same things as me, drag racing, fast cars, motorbikes, in fact anything with an engine – I’m definitely the celebrant or you!

While my ‘niche’ is the gearhead theme, that’s by no means a deal breaker – I adore a traditional wedding too, the dress, the suits – everything!

What's my ceremony style?

I’m not a wedding planner, I’m the celebrant who conducts the ‘service’. I write a personalised ‘script’ for the ceremony itself – think of it as a film script with you as the stars and me with a speaking role.

If like me you’re a ‘Gearhead’, I can write a service that will reflect those passions, and we can incorporate whoever you wish into the ceremony in a variety of roles, as well as your favourite music and readings.

In weddings there can be rituals – like hand-fasting, broomstick jumping, glass breaking or perhaps the vodka, bread, and salt ceremony. There can be a religious or spiritual element if you wish, or maybe even a magic trick! The only limit is your imagination, and I’ll be on hand to advise and work out the practicalities throughout.

It all starts with a blank sheet of paper and an open mind.

Why choose Gibb?

Don’t let the grey hair fool you, I’m young in mind, spirit and heart – in my head I’m still twenty seven. I’m broad minded and non-judgmental and I’ll have a go at anything.

My goal is to tell your love story in a way it’s never been told before. I’ll create a ceremony that you’ll love, and I’ll make your friends and family laugh – a lot, and cry – a little.

With me, your celebration won’t be an ‘off the shelf cut and paste’ job that you get with a more traditional religious or registry service.

Weddings

I love weddings, nothing brings me greater joy than seeing a devoted couple, deeply in love, share that love by demonstrating their commitment to each other with friends and family.

It’s my mission to make your ceremony fun and memorable (for all the right reasons!) and in order to create your perfect ceremony I’ll need to know a LOT about you and your partner. There’ll be a lot of questions, lots of laughter and hopefully a lot of tea and biscuits.

Your wedding is about the two of you, the story of how you met and why you are so great with each other – and it’s my job to tell that story!

It all starts with a blank sheet of paper and an open mind.

I write and conduct ceremonies that reflect your life and passions – giving the congregation a real sense of ‘you’. Nothing pleases me more than having the audience discover things about the couple that they didn’t know before.

With me, your celebration won’t be an ‘off the shelf cut and paste’ job that you get with a more traditional religious or registry service.

My aim is to create a ceremony that you’ll love, I’ll make your friends and family laugh – a lot, and cry – a little.

My goal is to tell your love story in a way it’s never been told before, and have your guests coming away from your day saying ‘That was the best wedding I’ve ever been to’.

Get in touch, let’s get to know each other, and see where this road trip takes us. I’m ready to create the perfect celebration just for you!

Don’t let the grey hair fool you, I’m young in mind, spirit and heart – in my head I’m still twenty seven. I’m broad minded and non-judgmental and I’ll have a go at anything.

I’ve also worked as an actor and occasionally still do, so I probably bring a little ‘theatricality’ to some of my ceremonies. Comedy is my forte, and I thrive on laughter,

I trained as a celebrant with, and am a member of, the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.

Renewal of Vows

You’ve been through thick and thin and you’re still together – isn’t that worth celebrating?

It could be a significant anniversary, you’ve come through a difficult patch or perhaps it just feels like the right time. A vow renewal ceremony can be a perfect way to reaffirm your love and commitment to each other in front of your family and friends.

A vow renewal ceremony gives you the chance to reflect on your marriage so far and state your hopes and dreams for your future together. You can repeat the vows you made all those years ago or you can write new ones for the years ahead. Maybe you had a small registry office ‘do’ before and now you want a big party, or maybe you had the full white wedding last time and now you want an intimate gathering somewhere quiet.

Funerals

Let’s put the FUN back into funerals!

An end of life ceremony, in my opinion, should be a celebration; a proper party with the ones we love, remembering the joy someone brought to our lives. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to think that once I’ve gone my friends and family will stand around in a chapel or crematorium being miserable. I’d hope to hear laughter – and lots of it!

I will write and conduct a dignified ceremony that remembers the joy once shared with the deceased, and reflects on the future to come without our loved one.

I like to conclude my funeral ceremonies with a standing ovation in honour of the deceased, and a life well lived – this is always a well received and appropriate
send-off.

And yes, if the chosen music must include ‘I Did It My Way’ – it has to be the Sid Vicious version!.

Why choose Gibb for your funeral?

Some of you reading this will be recently bereaved and arranging a service, however it’s easy to forget that some readers are themselves suffering an illness, and thinking about what they would like at their own funeral – which may even be imminent. If this is the case I’m happy to meet at your convenience to discuss what you wish for your own send off.

Funeral | 03/18/2020 | Margate Crematorium

Dave did a fantastic job at my father’s funeral, which was a little unusual in that my Dad wrote his eulogy and planned his own funeral before passing away peacefully. Dave took the time to visit my Dad, got to know him during the planning stages, made the whole ceremony come alive whilst respecting my dad’s wishes. On the day, Dave’s delivery and humour made this a truly special occasion.

Wedding | 10/25/2019 | The Leaf Hotel Dover

Gibb was instrumental in making mine and my husbands wedding the very best day of our lives. The ceremony was personal, sincere and with the right touch of humour to make it feel relaxed and enjoyable to be a part of. We could tell that Gibb worked hard in making sure it was what we wanted, making suggestions and listening to our thoughts and wishes. I can whole heartedly recommend Gibb as a celebrant and we thank him from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing job he did. Sally and Keiron x
