Celebrant in Warwickshire for Weddings and Funeral Ceremonies
Hello, I’m Claire I am a Funeral and Family Celebrant and I live Warwickshire with my partner, my two children and my dog. I cover most of the West Midlands region, and am happy to travel to you. I can work with you to create beautiful, bespoke Wedding, Civil, Naming, Funeral, Memorial or any other ceremony or celebration that you require.
Prior to working as a Celebrant, I have worked as a qualified Probation Officer and more recently a professional Singer, Community Choir leader and a Singing for Health and Well-being Practitioner. I work with many people and specialise in working with those who have various health conditions including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. All of these experiences have taught me things that are so valuable within the Celebrant role, not least the fact that we are all unique and have many, fabulous stories to tell.
I am empathic, caring, friendly, cheerful and funny, and one of my strengths is connecting and building relationships with those around me. I am easy to talk to, and a wonderful listener and have a great deal of experience of talking and listening to people's stories. I have worked extensively with people from many different backgrounds and with many different needs and I can always find a way to relate to anyone.
I love singing and I really enjoy leading my Community Choir and my Singing for Health Groups. The way that singing makes people feel and the memories that it evokes is truly phenomenal. Helping you to incorporate song and music into your ceremony would give me great joy and satisfaction. I love nature and walking, I am an avid knitter and have recently discovered a love of baking cakes!
Each ceremony is as unique as you are. I will incorporate your stories, memories, funny anecdotes and appropriate poems, readings or songs to reflect individual personalities. As a singer, I would happy to sing a favourite song if there is one that means a lot to you or your family. This would add another unique element to the occasion and could be tailored to your requests.
My caring, approachable, empathic and friendly nature will help you to feel comfortable to share your stories with me. You can trust me to tell them accurately, appropriately, sensitively and with humour. I will listen to your requests and not seek to impose my own influence on your special day – this is your ceremony, and I am there to facilitate it your way. However, I am also there to give you help and guidance if you require it and talk you through the various options for your particular ceremony.
I am happy to fit in with any particular theme that you may have in mind, and can assist you to source any special elements that you would like to include in your celebration. I am happy to dress appropriately for your theme and colour scheme should you require me to.
Afterwards, I will provide you with a written copy which is yours to keep in order to remember the beautiful ceremony that we create together.
Whether your ceremony is for a joyful occasion such as a Wedding or Naming Ceremony or a more reflective occasion such as the celebration of the life of a loved one who has passed on, together we will create something truly beautiful, remarkable and memorable.
