The Celebrant - a joyful personality to guide you through the ceremony from start to finish.



Clive is a highly experienced communicator with a diverse background of roles as a, leader, manager and motivator. His brightness and enthusiasm meant he was always called upon for family functions, milestones and ceremonies to administer speeches and be the master of ceremonies.

With all this experience under his belt, his family encouraged him to put his skills to work as an officiated civil celebrant, which he took to like a duck to water.


Clive has had 40 years of life experience captaining aircraft, boats and industry. While none of these have required solemnising weddings or civil ceremonies, they've built a rare set of skills that make him one of the most well rounded Celebrants on the Sunshine Coast. 


Having held roles as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Executive Officer he is highly experienced in communicating with people from all walks of life through conferences and university lecturing, as well as instructing pilots, emergency personal and navy commanders.

Clive is part-owner with his wife of the Montvale Estate, a new and innovative wedding  venue on the Sunshine Coast.

If you are after a fun but personal celebrant then the owner “Captain” Clive is your man.


We didn’t hesitate in choosing him after we met and he made us feel so looked after.

We had the most magical wedding and we cannot thank the team at Montvale enough.
