Funerals

Many people still think of a Funeral as a sad occassion, a time to mourn and cry over a life lost. They don’t have to be like this though. They can be a time to remember all the good times and laugh at memories of the person.
As a celebrant I will work closely with the family and the funeral directors, to compose and deliver, a wonderful ‘Celebration of Life’ Service for the family and friends of the person who has died. Enabling them to re live their most precious memories and Honour that persons passing in a unique and personal way.
I will come and spend time with you as a family and gather all the relevant information to put a wonderful ceremony together. I can help advise on readings and poems and am happy to add religious elements into the service if required.

I also offer memorial services and internment/scattering of ashes ceremonies.

As well as cremation and burial services I also offer memorial services, Internment and scattering of ashes services and will help with any pre need arrangements. Families will receive a keepsake copy of the ceremony script after the day.

Prices From

£180

Why choose Diane for your funeral?

I will write and deliver a truly personal ceremony, that is exactly as you want it to be. The ceremony will capture the very essence of the person and tell the story of the life that has been lived.

Our Disney Wedding Ceremony

Beck & Charlie

Wedding | 09/26/2020 | Rye Hill Barn, Warminster

We can’t thank Diane well enough for being part of our big day. Right from first seeing her website we thought Diane was the one we need to marry us and we were right. Throughout the whole experience she was only an email away to answer any queries. She travelled all the way to Wiltshire to meet us and get together our ideas for the ceremony and listened to what we wanted for our day and appeared to be genuinely interested. She embraced our weirdness and was keen to get involved with our Disney theme and dress up as the fairy godmother! Due to Covid restrictions we had to bring forward our ceremony date with only 4 days warning, Diane was so supportive throughout the stress and made herself available for our new date and made sure our ceremony was all ready to go ahead. On the day the ceremony was amazing! The beautiful words, to the snuck in Disney quotes, to all the little personalised touches – we cannot thank you enough! So many people have complimented our photos and our ‘fairy godmother’ and honestly if you’re getting married we cannot recommend Diane enough – thank you for everything!! Xx

Funeral | 04/09/2020 | Wessex Vale Crematorium

We met Diane whilst planning our dear Father’s funeral in March 2020. Even amidst the beginnings of social distancing for Covid-19, she kindly visited my home to chat with myself and my two brothers about the man our Dad was to us and what we wanted for his service to ensure that it was just right.She had a warmth that put us at ease during what was an incredibly painful and difficult time. She explained everything clearly to us and nothing was too much trouble. She kept in contact during a very uncertain time and tried to keep us positive about the service being able to go ahead (albeit, sadly, with just the 3 of us in the end).On the day Diane conducted a beautiful service, filled with all the things we wanted to include and paying the perfect tribute to our wonderful Pops. We were very pleased with Diane’s services from start to finish and we will be using her again for Dad’s second funeral, whenever that may be!Caroline, Matthew & Richard

Funeral | 02/11/2020 | Wessex Vale Crematorium

Diane is a lovely person, calm, compassionate and very easy to talk to. We talked about Mums life and she managed to encapsulate it in a warm and moving service. Everything was explained, talked through and agreed before the day so that there was nothing to worry about. I had many comments afterwards saying what a lovely service it was. Thank you Diane
