Clover Jean: Bespoke wedding and commitment ceremonies celebrant

Hi, I’m Clover Jean a young at heart but mature singing wedding  celebrant| master-of-ceremonies who performs commitment ceremonies. Have you obtained your marriage license (legal paperwork) at the registry office with 2 witnesses during a small, separate ceremony?

On your behalf, I’ll carry out a full-fledged wedding or celebration for love (for the two of you) in front of your family and friends. My valued clients have told me that I’m a celebrant-singer-performer with a difference (fun and perhaps a little crazy, in a good way).

First things first. Clover Jean is not an artist name. It is my real name. I was born in Shepherds Bush, London in the late 60s. My background is Afro-Caribbean. My mother is Jamaican and my father St Lucian.

I’ve settled in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Since 1989 I’ve lived and worked in the city. 30 years ago I followed a  Dutch language course and discovered Holland, the people, the customs and traditions. By the way, I passed the state Exam Dutch as a Second Language (Nt2) and have full citizenship.

To change the topic slightly… Everyone asks me if Clover Jean is an artist’s name. And guess what my answer is? Read more…

And there’s more about me

In 2008, I founded Clover Jean Entertainment. With decades of experience as a singer and entertainer my specialty is:

  • Expat weddings
  • International weddings
  • Small, intimate wedding ceremonies
  • Commitment ceremonies
  • And surprise party music entertainment.

This year is my 10th year anniversary. So, keep an eye-out on my website for a special treat!

Additionally, my guilty pleasure is romantic period dramas. I’m a sucker for great relationships! What’s more, I’m passionate about weddings. I get my wedding inspiration from the National Wedding Show in London  and TLC (Say Yes To The Dress). Over the years I’ve realised that we enjoy celebrating new beginnings and traditions. Not only that, we love memorable occasions and songs that inspire us.

Therefore, by adding a portion of excitement, it produces a warm, friendly atmosphere, putting a unique twist on your wedding, commitment ceremony or event. An individualized theme will surely give you and your family and friends an amazing time. More importantly, it will be a wedding, party or celebration of love set apart from everyone else.

But why do my clients choose me? They want to create an elegant, warm, fun and memorable moment for their one-of a kind celebration of love event. Read more about me and what they say.

Important turning point in my life 

clover jean about me

Me back in my younger days

More than 5 years ago both my parents passed away. Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis this gave me strength. And drove home the fact that life is short and unpredictable. And things happen when we are busy making other plans. So, I plucked up the strength and courage to embark on a new journey as a certified  marriage celebrant for destination, international, expats weddings and commitment ceremonies.

Four core wedding services

Actually, I recently became ordained as a (interfaith) minister of the Universal Life Church Monastery. Yes, I can legally solemnize a marriage across the United States, but not in Holland. And as a resident of Amsterdam I cannot perform legal marriages. However, as a celebrant | officiant I am qualified to carry out non-legally binding weddings, unity and commitment ceremonies.

Therefore, I offer you four core wedding services. And whether you want a non-religious humanist marriage service or meaningful touch to your party, I can help you. Together we can execute your interfaith, intercultural wedding and celebration of love in Holland, United Kingdom, Spain or anywhere else. You’re free to choose.

Here’s a tip for you

Just so you know, I’ll give you the unique experience you desire. Your dream of hosting a wedding or celebration of love where you want, when you want and how you like it will become reality.

My services are tailor-made to suit you, your personal taste and the allocated amount of funds for your special event. So, let’s create a ‘Wow’ factor and spice up your big day with me as your (singing) wedding or commitment ceremony celebrant. In a word, give a traditional ceremony an alternative modern feel.
