Hello & Welcome

“The best thing in life to hold onto is each other” Audrey Hepburn

Hi there I'm Diane Bell

As you have landed on my page, I'm guessing you are looking for a celebrant for a special family occasion.

I hope after looking through my website and perhaps contacting me for an informal chat you find that I'm the Celebrant for you.

I am based in Southampton, Hampshire but I'm happy to travel for your special day.

So, what are you looking for?

A wonderful wedding celebration, a naming ceremony to welcome the new addition to the family or maybe someone has passed away and you wish to celebrate their life with family and friends.

Whatever the occasion I will work closely with you to craft a beautiful, unique ceremony to meet your every wish.

When using a celebrant, you have no strict guidelines to follow.

I can include religious elements if you wish and your celebration can take place at a time and venue of your choice, even in your back garden!!

Perhaps you would like a ceremony that captures your special interest or hobby. If this is the case then talk to me about themed ceremonies. I'm quite happy to dress up and be as involved as you want me to be.

Short symbolic elements can be added to any ceremony such as a Sand Ceremony or lighting of a unity candle, and for the ultimate symbolic gesture I can perform a handfasting ceremony as part of, or as your whole celebration.


Diane was wonderful to work with. She is such a lovely person and we connected with her straight away. She gave us exactly what we wanted and was very accommodating to all of our requests. She performed such a beautiful ceremony. We can't even describe how wonderfully personal it was. All of our guests said it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever been to. We are still getting compliments on how beautiful it was. We would definitely recommend Diane.
