Hello there, I’m Clare Gidley, a family and funeral celebrant, living near Milton Keynes and working in Beds, Bucks and beyond. You are welcome to contact me for an initial no obligation chat on 07803 709486 or to message me via this page.
Are you looking for something special, something bespoke and tailored to you own requirements? For someone who will work with you to create your ceremony just the way that you want it?
Look no further! My role is to listen to you, gain a good understanding of your wishes, prepare your ceremony and deliver it for you – including naming ceremonies, weddings, vow renewals, funerals and more.
I am completely open to all of your ideas - and happy to throw in a few more that you may not have considered. Conventional, unconventional, sensible, silly, quirky, fun – all possibilities are on the table!
A whole lot of life and a whole lot of life experiences have got me to where I am today, and my career so far has been rather varied. I have been an army officer, an aerobics teacher, a marketing manager and a training leader. I have worked with small groups and large organisations; coached one-to-one; presented to audiences of over 200 – many things where it has been important to hear and understand the needs of a client.
For my own second marriage, my now husband and I worked with a celebrant to create the ceremony of our dreams – we and our guests had a unique and marvellous day! Then, on our honeymoon, it dawned on me that this was something that I was incredibly drawn to as a vocation, and here I am... .
Home is just outside Milton Keynes, where I live with my latest (!) husband, two step-children and a mildly psychotic cat. I also have two grown up (in age, if not in attitude) sons who are out there in the big bad world fending for themselves.
As a family and funeral celebrant, preparing and conducting bespoke, personalised wedding, funeral and naming ceremonies, I am happy to work locally, nationally and internationally - wherever my services are required.
Let’s talk soon!
