Hi! I’m Clare – a Wedding Celebrant in Devon

Hello! It’s wonderful to meet you and congratulations on your forth-coming wedding!

Firstly, – you have said “yes!” and want to find out how you go about arranging the big day. If you are looking for a ceremony that is memorable, unique and meaningful to you both as a couple – you’ve come to the right place!


Besides, your love story is unique, right? As your wedding celebrant – I know I can help! What better way to celebrate your love with your closest friends, family and loved ones, than sharing your story?

The story that we loved to listen to our grandparents tell over and over. The one about how they met, fell in love and, perhaps, overcame some tough times.

Above all, its your story that makes you smile when you relive it.  These are the foundations of your relationship and the core of your love.  You should be able to celebrate that love – just the way you want.


I am a totally hopeless romantic and have a BA in English Literature, so I am passionate about writing personal, poignant and heartfelt ceremonies for couples and their families.

With your interests, personalities and style in mind, I will write your ceremony to reflect your individuality and that represent you.

Every couple is unique –

so why should your wedding ceremony be any different?

Being a Celebrant means that there are no restrictions for time, venue or characteristics for your wedding.  Your imagination is the only restriction! The kind of ceremonies I offer tend to be light-hearted, relaxed and full of love and laughter.  Therefore it could never be a standard, prescribed or stuffy ceremony  – it will be unique and filled with fun and inclusive with your loved ones. There are a number of elements, traditions and rituals that can be added to your ceremony,:

Vow Renewal

First and foremost, what better way to celebrate the years you have spent after making your promises and saying your vows to each other.
Indeed, it is simply the best way to commemorate a love that has deepened and matured between you both, whether it be a year or fifty years after your first time committing yourselves to one another.  Not only can I guarantee a warm, memorable and sincere ceremony, but one that you and your loved ones will remember forever.


A naming ceremony is a lovely way to welcome your newest member of your family. Although naming ceremonies are usually associated with babies – I can also a provide a ceremony to commemorate a new start for a non-binary or trans person.  Whatever the occasion, it’s important to give the person being named a beautiful start to their life, celebrating with your closest friends and family.
