Clive of Special Moments Celebrant tells us how he's helped couples during the pandemic

We've been catching up with Essex wedding professionals to find out what it's been like to run their business during the pandemic. Clive of Special Moments Celebrant has been supporting his couples through postponements, cancellations and reorganising. "There have been many tears as the stress of this prolonged uncertainty has taken its toll," Clive says. "My role is to ensure that plans are adapted so that the couple can still look forward to celebrating their love in a way that reflects them. Twenty years of experience has equipped me with the expertise to ensure that even if the wedding isn't what was originally planned, that it's still a magical experience – even if Zoom is necessary!"

With many couples opting for a small official ceremony followed by a second 'sequel' wedding after restrictions have lifted, Clive can make sure the second wedding is truly special. "I can create a unique event where the only limit is your imagination," he says. "With the backlog of ceremonies developing, a celebrant-led wedding can happen at any time and place, giving you more flexibility."
