I have a small white rambler bt David Austin called White Goose, It has small white flwers and a scent that lingers on the air.
It has been a slow starter but this year(planted 2012) still quite small but smothered in flowers
As for clematis - I would look at viticella type. They flower later after the roses have had their main, first flush and you can get lovely deep colours that would look great with white climbers - look at Gravitye Beauty and etoile violette
For early colour look at the macropetala clematis and the alpina type. They would flower before the roses and are not thugs like a montana.
And fro a spectacular white climbing rose there is Iceberg - lovely and always a mass of flowers.
