I just wanted to send a quick message to say the most enormous thank you for all your help and support over the last three days. I wish I'd stayed on to do the wedding training, but I'd felt it might be easier to do them separately (and get a bit of experience with one before attempting the other). I miss the gang already!
You have such a wonderful way about you, Diane - you have a confident yet gentle delivery at just the right pace. I'm so pleased we were all able to meet your high standards, as none of us wanted to let you down.
I look forward to seeing you again, but in the meantime I may be in touch if I need any help! I'll be putting you on speed-dial!
Thank you again for your generosity in sharing your knowledge and your tips. As my beloved mother used to say, 'a candle loses nothing by lighting another' - I feel I have been well and truly lit :)
3-5th July 2017
We initially contacted Diane purely on the basis that we weren’t able to book a registrar on the date that we wanted. This turned out to be the best thing that could have happened in our wedding planning. Diane was able to guide us and help us prepare a completely personal ceremony that reflected us both as individuals but also our relationship. It was a pleasure to work with Diane and we ended up with the ceremony that we wanted and it was one that our guests really enjoyed based on the number of compliments we had on it. Diane was an absolute professional and even with a croaky voice she provided us with an experience that we will never forget and a one of a kind ceremony which we wouldn’t otherwise have had.

Diane created a beautiful ceremony for us, with lots of unique and thoughtful elements.
Many of our guests commented that this was the loveliest ceremony that they had witnessed, we think this says it all!

From the moment I first met Diane, I knew she was the person that I wanted to perform Our ceremony. She was warm, professional and very passionate about her work. Our guests were amazed at the ceremony and nearly all commented how wonderful and original it was and they had never been to anything like it.
I would highly recommend Diane and the wonderful service she provided to help us celebrate 20 Years of marriage.

Diane was perfect on our special day. So many of our guests were blown away with how personal and special the ceremony was and how obvious it was that it had been created just for us. Diane’s ideas were truly fantastic, from the last kiss from our mothers to pausing to remember people who couldn't be there. It was everything we wanted.
We are so grateful to have found Diane and that she travelled so far to make our ceremony so perfect, she was incredibly attentive, accommodating and helpful right from the start.
So thank you once again for being so fantastic, we had such an amazing day and we will send the pictures as soon as we get them!

Here is a testimonial for your website. Thank you from both of us for such a special Ceremony. We have had so many comments about the uniqueness and magical air of your Ceremony.
We originally had our wedding planned for our local Register Office, but soon realised that our guests were not going to fit into such a small venue. That is when a friend came up with the idea of a Celebrant Ceremony - and I am so grateful that she did. Diane is a warm, and caring lady, who totally believes in what she does and makes you feel relaxed and reassured from the minute you meet her. Her Ceremony had lots of special touches and made the day relaxed, romantic and magical. For anyone looking for an alternative Ceremony, we would totally recommend Diane and her bespoke service. The day was totally tailored to our personal wishes and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Diane for a special and memorable Wedding Ceremony!

We first met Diane when she came into our Salon and instantly felt a bond as if we had known her for longer. When we found out she worked as a Celebrant we knew that we would be asking her to perform our Marriage Ceremony. Diane is a warm loving lady who is clearly passionate about her role in life and infuses that in others. Our special day would not have been so intimate, personal and loving without Diane's professionalism, warm approach and happiness that shone through in the way she planned and executed our ceremony. Words do not accurately describe how highly we recommend her to others. It is a pleasure to now say she is a friend to both ourselves and to other family members who had the pleasure to get to know her on the day. We were also introduced to her husband Don who was a very professional photographer and put together our wedding album, and again comes highly recommended as we are delighted with the finished results.

My husband and I cannot thank Diane enough for performing such a lovely service on August Bank Holiday. We had so many people coming up to us saying how beautiful it was and what a fantastic job our celebrant had done.
Diane was warm and friendly on the day and also throughout the planning process. She gave us a present which was a book of our wedding script that included both readings from the service, it was such a lovely surprise and something that we will keep forever to remember what a special day it was.
I would recommended Diane to anyone... as would our 200 guests!
Lara & Ed Barnett
Diane worked with us for months to create our perfect ceremony, and was very patient with our tweakings and chopping and changing our minds! We're very grateful to her for travelling such a long way to be with us, and getting everything for the ceremony set up so nicely.
The ceremony she helped us create was beautiful, we had so many guests coming up to us afterwards and saying how romantic it was. She really made the day special, nothing was too much trouble, and we'd be happy to recommend her to anyone.

My husband and I renewed our vows on the 5th July, and we had the privilege of Diane performing it for us. She made us feel very special and her attention to detail was fabulous. Everybody that attended the ceremony commented on how wonderful it was and how good Diane was. My husband and I would highly recommend Diane and were extremely pleased with the whole ceremony that she performed.

We wanted our wedding to be personal, full of fun and love. We met Diane, and fell in love with her immediately, we were impressed by her as her professionalism shone through, and she clearly had a passion and dedication to her work, She is kind, approachable, positive, friendly and thoughtful, she helped guide us at every step, so our ideas in our heads became real. And she had ideas we would never have thought of. She kept us on track without being bossy and made sure we were happy at all times.
The day was truly the most amazing wedding, I have ever been to, and it was my own!!!..All our guests have commented on how they had "never been to a wedding like it, it was the best they had ever attended" and that was all down to Diane, she went the extra mile on every aspect and has made wonderful, lasting memories for us. I will miss her support she has shown us over the past months. I cant recommend Diane enough, you will not be disappointed to have her as part of your special day..x

We found Diane through a search on the internet and how glad we are that we came across her! Diane wrote and delivered the most beautiful wedding ceremony that wecould have possibly hoped for. Diane was really useful with suggestions on how to structure the ceremony and great ideas on wording to use. We mainly communicated via e-mail in the run up to our wedding as we live in Australia and Diane was always so prompt with responses and happy to chat over Skype too which was a lovely convenient way to say hello without having to actually meet up.
Diane was very professional on our wedding day itself, she has such a loving, caring personality and was a delight to have with us. She maintained the perfect balance of light-hearted humour with more serious heart touching moments during the ceremony which we loved. The unity candle was a surprise to us on the day but such a fantastic idea, we loved the surprise!
We had so many guests come up to us after the ceremony telling us how much they enjoyed the ceremony. Diane has also put together a commemorative script of our wedding ceremony for us to keep which was really appreciated. Both my husband and I felt that Diane was the best value part of our entire wedding day!

I just wanted to say a quick thank you for yesterday. It was a really lovely ceremony, and you really helped to make our day a very special one.
Lots of people remarked on how much they enjoyed the ceremony!

My search for a celebrant was quickly halted when I received my first email from Diane. I knew immediately that she was organized, dependable, flexible and truly passionate for what she does. In planning my wedding vow renewal, with only 4 weeks notice, Diane was very quick to create a wonderful ceremony for us. She tailored it to my specifications through very open lines of communication using email and facetime. She was extremely helpful in trying to find us a venue for our ceremony and made many phone calls on our behalf as we do not live in the UK. We were vacationing in London and decided to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary by renewing our vows through an intimate ceremony in which our three children participated. Diane’s warm and comforting personality made our ceremony so meaningful and memorable. She was extremely professional, detail oriented and exceptionally reliable throughout the entire process. Diane accommodated our special requests by having her husband take some photos and video for us…thank you so much Don, they look great!! Our day was very special and we thank you Diane, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything you did for us!!

We found the handfasting a very meaningful and heart touching ceremony, it was great and included more than we could have imagined. Thank you so much for helping us prepare it, for your magic words, for your lovely and happy attitude and in general for making that day so special.
