Hi, I’m Clover Jean an unconventional, young at heart but mature wedding celebrant | master-of-ceremonies | singer who creates and performs bespoke weddings and commitment ceremonies in Holland and England.
Being a celebrant is a rewarding and fulfilling job. And if you’ve obtained your civil union or marriage license (legal paperwork) at the registry office with 2 witnesses during a small, separate ceremony I’ll carry out a fully-fledged wedding or celebration of 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 (cool personality, fun, unconventional and perhaps a little crazy, in a good way).
I’m a British-Caribbean expat born in Shepherds Bush, London in the late 60s. My mother is Jamaican and my father St Lucian.
In 1989 I fell in love with the Netherlands. Living and working in the bubbly city is a dream come true. And 30 years ago, after taking a Dutch language course, I took a vow to get to know the people, the customs and the weird and wonderful traditions. By the way, I passed the state Exam Dutch as a Second Language (NT2) and am a fully-fledged resident of Holland. So, I’m officially Dutchiefied!
To change the topic slightly… Everyone asks me if Clover Jean is an artist’s name. And guess what my answer is? Read on…

Creating cool weddings in Holland and England
Additionally, my guilty pleasure is romantic period dramas. I’m a sucker for great relationships! What’s more, I’m passionate about any kind of wedding. I get my wedding inspiration from you, 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 meaningful traditions. Not only that, we love memorable occasions and songs that inspire us.
Therefore, when you add a portion of excitement to your event, it produces a warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere. And that puts a unique twist on your unconventional wedding, unique commitment ceremony or celebratory party. An individualized theme will surely give you and your family and friends an amazing time. More importantly, it will be set apart from everyone else.
But why do my clients choose me? They want to create an awesome, elegant and special day for their one-of a kind celebration of love event. Read more about me and what my clients really say.
Important turning point in my life
More than 5 years ago both my parents passed away. Then came a health scare, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. This 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.
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 US, but not in Holland. And as a resident of Amsterdam I cannot perform legal marriages. However, as a celebrant I’m qualified to create memorable moments for you during a non-legally binding wedding or non-religious unity ceremony.
Therefore, with my four core wedding services, you’ll add a meaningful touch to your big day. So, let’s get together to design your wedding and celebration of love in Holland, England or anywhere else. You’re free to choose.
