I’m an allround performance artist (black/she/her/hers), people connector, party-starter and wedding vibe creator of Clover Jean Weddings & Entertainment NL.
When did it all start?
Once upon a time, I was asked to conduct a wedding on the island of Texel. But the problem was my background. I’m a stand-up comedian, choir singer and presenter with a wealth of experience in entertainment. However, I’d never performed a marriage ceremony. ‘Don’t worry, just put on a priests gown!’ said the couple. I did, then trained as a celebrant and the rest is history. Read the newlyweds rave reviews!
What do I do?
Every important stage of life deserves recognition, from joyful weddings, the birth of a new child or sad farewells to those we love. Creating unique celebration ceremonies for everyone of all creeds and colour, multicultural, same-sex and other LGBTQ+ couples has become my life’s work. I craft and deliver a lighthearted yet fitting speech. Delivered in combination of English or/and Dutch, my services mark a life-changing event.
Who am I?
Clover is my first name, my surname is Jean. It’s not an allround performance artist name, I inherited it from my West-Indian parents. As a British expat, Afro-Caribbean national born in Shepherds Bush, London in the late sixties, my Jamaican mum [baptist] and St Lucian dad [atheistic], gifted me with the spirit of freethinking, humour and great empathy.
And one more thing about me – my love for travel brought me to freedom-loving Amsterdam the capital of hedonism. Its been my home ever since. So, give me a call if you want a celebrant-led wedding ceremony service in the Netherlands that is uniquely yours. Speak to you soon!
