Hi, I'm Diana

Established in 2010, Diana has become one of the country’s leading independent professional full-time celebrants, with a reputation for achingly romantic, bespoke ceremonies for discerning clients.

Linked to some of the most beautiful venues in the country, including the Soho Farmhouse and the Relais and Chateaux sister hotels Cliveden House, Berkshire, and The Chewton Glen Hotel and Spa in the New Forest, Diana is the trusted partner, providing a service to match the high standards of each venue, and delighting clients with her patience, knowledge, expertise and delivery in a perfectly spoken English voice which is modulated, clear and expressive, without any regional accent, ensuring that all those present can easily hear and understand every word.

Each ceremony is unique, sincere, authentic, carefully researched, and beautifully delivered by a true professional and experienced celebrant with a passion for her work, and each client.

We believe that first impressions are very important, and the care we have in each wedding will show in the work we produce, therefore each personalised script is professionally proofread at first draft stage and all subsequent drafts, before being sent to clients for approval, to ensure that scripts are of the highest standard, grammatically and factually correct, and free of spelling errors.

With the additional reassurance of knowing that Diana has two personally trained and insured deputies on hand to stand in for her in the case of emergency and to take second bookings on days when Diana herself is already booked, her clients have the comfort and peace of mind of knowing that they will never be let down when booking Diana’s services.

Naming Ceremony

Naming Ceremonies

Naming and Welcoming ceremonies are the perfect way to welcome a child of any age into a family. Whether new-borns, adopted children or step children, these ceremonies help to confirm a child’s identity. Single parents also find such a ceremony is a wonderful way to affirm their commitment to their child, while publicly acknowledging the adults t chosen to help and support them in the raising of their child through its formative years. While faith-based ceremonies, such as Christenings, have long-established traditional scripts, choosing the right words for a more personal ceremony can be difficult. During the ceremony planning process Diana will meet each family personally to get to know the baby or child. She takes time to create a script that meets her high standards as well as fulfilling the parents’ vision, while encapsulating the child’s personality and character. She brings her valuable resource material and helps you choose or write your own promises, and select music and readings

Renewal of Vows

Couples give many reasons for renewing their marriage vows- surviving illness, celebrating a special anniversary, overcoming personal challenges or temptations, and just sheer love and gratitude for their other half. Many have a strong desire for their children to witness them renewing their vows in re-dedication to each other. Reaching a milestone wedding anniversary they often think about renewing their vows to celebrate their relationship, their partnership and everything that this has brought them. Some like to make things different from their wedding day with a vow renewal ceremony, while others like to try, as far as possible, to replicate their original wedding ceremony. Occasionally something was not right for a couple on their wedding day; perhaps their photos have been spoiled or lost,and they feel the need to take their marriage vows again so that all their enduring memories are recaptured.
With over a decade’s experience, Diana will help you find the right words and format for your ceremony.

Thank you for a perfect wedding ceremony

Wedding | 08/15/2022 | Dewsall Court

We were first introduced to Diana, Grace the Day, in October 2020 at Cheltenham’s 131 and were immediately taken by her gentle nature.

Unfortunately, covid robbed us of our wedding day (again) but we were so taken by Diana’s warmth and compassion, we asked her to join us at our 6th attempt at getting married at Dewsall Court.

Diana put such detail and thought into preparing our service. After each meeting, we were left feeling so excited.

When the day finally came, Diana delivered a beautiful ceremony that painted the perfect picture of our relationship and made all our guests feel like an integral part of our day.

After the wedding, I have had so many comments about how lovely and personal our ceremony was. It was my favourite part of our day and something I will treasure forever.

Diana,

Thank you for your patience, guidance and touch of magic you brought to our ceremony. Throughout 3 Covid related wedding arrangements, you were incredibly flexible and thoughtful throughout. We are in admiration at time you took to get to know your wedding couples and this absolutely came through in our ceremony.

You added class, sophistication, words and style that helped make our wedding the special day we had dreamed of.

Thank you

Leanne & Ben

Diana from Grace the Day was truly fantastic in preparing us for our wedding and on the day itself. Diana’s experience guided us where we sought guidance and her flexibility tailored the ceremony to our profiles. Moreover it’s her warmth that shines through when you interact with her. All of our friends and family were moved by her touches to our ceremony. We can only give the highest of recommendations! Tom & Pia
