Words ARE the wedding, and Reverend Claire always gives her couples, family and friends the bond of a magical message. Consistently great. Highly recommended.
I've played for dozens of weddings performed by Claire, and it never fails- the atmosphere is always calm yet joyful, and her words are always so moving. She knows how to create a meaningful ceremony sensitively tailored to each couple, yet she really knows how weddings work and how to make things flow smoothly. I always leave feeling better than I came!
We have worked with Claire and her team quite often at our weddings. She listens to the bride and groom's vision and creates a beautiful ceremony that everyone will remember.
