Hi, my name is Steve Brown and I am a full time professional Family & Civil Celebrant in Staffordshire.
Originally born in Aston, Birmingham my family moved to Sutton Coldfield when I was around four years old and that is the area where I really grew up. At twenty one a promotion saw me move to Worcestershire in 1978. This was a very happy home to me until I moving back north to Staffordshire in 2000 where I now live, just a few miles outside Lichfield with my partner Karen and our Chocolate Labrador, Max who does his very best to keep us both fit!
When I’m not working I enjoy watching Rugby, Singing, and Walking.
I played Rugby for around 24 years and just love the game. I sang as a top tenor with the Canoldir Choir and more recently in bands and still very occasionally solo, for charity events.
Karen and I love the outdoors, hill walking and enjoying the peace, beauty and solitude that this brings …apart from Max of course…he doesn’t understand calm… He only does excited.
Our other real passion and the one that takes priority with our spare time are our three amazing grandchildren Molly 5, George 3 and Georgia 18months with another due October 2018.
Prior to me training to become a professional Celebrant in 2014 I had been in sales and client services in both the print and conference & events industries and worked in management up to board level.
All in highly competitive and highly service orientated businesses working to and achieving tight deadlines.
Conference and Events especially requires an understanding and empathy with the client to achieve just what they want. Some of the events I worked on had substantial six figure budgets, so you can only image the meticulous planning involved in those and that I can bring to your ceremony.
All of those skills learned over many years in writing, presenting and producing play an important part in my role as a celebrant and bring with them the assurance that you and your ceremony are in great hands
When you choose me to provide your Ceremony you are choosing someone with huge life experience who can help you create the best possible day for you to remember.
Someone who through that life’s experiences and maturity both professionally and privately can fully empathise with you and work with you through the emotions of that event, be that a joyous wedding, a naming or renewal of vows, or perhaps the more reflective event of a funeral.
When you choose me, you are choosing someone who cares deeply, someone who is totally non judgemental and of a true secular nature. Someone who will be happy to be there for you, even after the ceremony should you require any further support and advice.
So whatever Ceremony you are looking for please just call me for an informal free initial chat, and I’m confident that we can make your day special and memorable for you. It is your day, so let us make it your way. Take a break from tradition.
I look forward to hearing from you, call me.
