About Me

Claire Western – I am an Independent Celebrant, which means that I am not aligned with any particular religion or belief. I will follow your wishes for your ceremony and will make suggestions according to my experience.

I offer wedding ceremonies, civil partnerships, renewal of vows, baby naming and Funerals or Memorial Ceremonies to clients throughout the South East of England and elsewhere.

How it works is that I come to see you for an initial consultation. If you decide to work with me, then I will put together ideas from our chat and my own research and will email you. There is a wide range of readings, poems, songs and music that can be included. Elements from any culture can be incorporated into the ceremonies.

I will then prepare your unique ceremony. For weddings/civil partnerships, I will of course conduct a wedding rehearsal, though will not give away too much of the actual ceremony if you want the vows to be a secret for the big day!

I have over 5 years experience as a Wedding Celebrant and have conducted many different styles of wedding in as many different types of venue. I am also an experienced Funeral Officiant.

I have a background in the arts and event management, so I can also advise on the choreography and staging of the ceremony. I am also a trained Counsellor, so you can feel very comfortable in my presence.
