Classic Spanish Guitarist – Richard Chapman

I’m a very experienced classical guitarist who has played in a lot of weddings and corporate events as well as playing professionally as a soloist in classical music festivals. I trained at Trinity College of Music in London.

I can offer repertoire that covers light classical pieces, Spanish music as well as instrumental arrangements of popular songs. I am also happy to meet couples and play a bit if that helps.

For further details please click on my wedding page link below where you can also hear some recordings I’ve made. These recordings are a little less classical in style but will give you an idea of what I do.

Celebrant Services

My name is Caroline Young and I am thrilled to be included on the Dorothy Clive Garden website, it really is a beautiful location.

I have completed the National Qualification Level 3 Diploma in Namings and Couples.

Mine is a totally rewarding role, working with people to design and deliver unique ceremonies.  I am privileged to play a part in significant and memorable moments in people’s lives and totally love what I do.

Working with you, I will create your perfect wedding celebration ceremony, baby naming, wedding vow renewal ceremony, commitment ceremony, in fact any celebration ceremony you may require.

Due to the combined wedding service agreement in Staffordshire, working with a registrar, your day can now be unique, seamless and you will be legally married on the day.

I am proud to have been trained to deliver funeral ceremonies.  During a difficult time in the lives of many, with empathy and understanding, I will work with you in a caring, warm and sensitive way to create a civil service which reflects the true personality and life of a loved one.  I will include religious content if required.

In addition to a poignant funeral service, I also deliver a scattering of ashes ceremony or memorial service in the Dorothy Clive Garden.  Still personal to your needs and gives people the chance to say a final farewell especially if due to circumstances, loved ones or friends have not been able to attend the main funeral.

Please contact me on Caroline.young24@yahoo.com or mobile number 07812160131 for any further information or to make a booking.
