Hi, I'm Steve

A warm welcome and thank you for visiting my profile.
I am a confident person and a big fan of comedy and well known for my love of corny jokes. I conduct a brass band and play piano, and trumpet and enjoy hiking and spending nights away in my campervan.
I love creating personalised, unique and meaningful ceremonies with a touch of class! I’m based in Shropshire and I conduct weddings, celebration of life/funerals, commitment, civil partnership, renewal of vows, adoption welcoming, naming, pet funerals, internment or scatter of ashes (human and animals), memorial service, and even divorce ceremonies.

What's my ceremony style?

If you would like your ceremony to feel upbeat right from the start, I provide live music on the trumpet or organ/piano. The most popular for walking down the aisle is “Here Comes the Bride” but, if the organ or the slower romantic pieces don’t take your fancy, what about Trumpet Voluntary, often heard at Royal weddings.
At funerals, I can perform The Last Post on the bugle as a nod to the deceased time in the military or emergency services. It is often sounded at military funerals to indicate that the soldier has gone to his final rest.

Why choose Steve?

As a headteacher and musician, I’d often been asked to speak or perform at weddings and funerals of friends and family. Public speaking and performing are something I thoroughly enjoy doing. After 28 years as a teacher, I decided it was time for a change of career and to take the plunge and become a Celebrant.
I studied music at music college and I began my working life as a professional musician this led to me performing at many different venues including many weddings and funerals.

Why choose Steve for your naming ceremony?

Naming Ceremonies welcome new children, whether they are adopted, or new babies born into a loving family. It’s a celebration of new life and a family bond. If a religious ceremony is not right for you, a Naming Ceremony can be the perfect way to welcome your child into the family and celebrate with friends and family.
It will be my privilege to work with you to make this celebration very special and a day to remember forever.
I can adapt my style to suit the ceremony and I like to ensure my clients feel comfortable and supported throughout the process of planning, before, during and after the ceremony.

Why choose Steve for your renewal of vows?

The renewal of vows is a lovely way to celebrate the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. There are many reasons why couples like to renew their vows and re-affirm their love for one another.
Renewing wedding vows is a beautiful and poignant ceremony for the couple, their family and friends.
Wedding vow renewal ceremonies can be as imaginative and personal and unique and maybe enriched by including beautiful rituals i.e.

Candle Ceremony
Ring Exchange
Candle Ceremony
Sand Ceremony
Handfasting.

A couple may wish to repeat their original wedding vows or write new vows.
