Beautifully crafted ceremonies for all occasions. 

A warm welcome to Diamond Ceremonies.

Hi, I'm Francilla

I am a trained Family and Funeral Celebrant.  I grew up in London and have been based between Cornwall and Devon for 20+ years.  I am happy to travel to London, Kent, Surrey and throughout the Southwest.   

I am passionate about providing and crafting professional, bespoke, heartfelt ceremonies for all occasions.

My job is to make your life easier whatever type of celebration you are planning.  

I offer a range of ceremonies to include Traditional weddings,  Hand Fastings,  Naming Ceremony,  Renewal of Vows, Elopements or Funerals. 

I will work to include your beliefs and or faith, be it spiritual, Christian, humanist, Quaker or Buddhist, to mention just a few religions that I have worked with.

Independent Celebrant

As an independent celebrant I design and create bespoke ceremonies which can be traditional, humanist, non-religious, spiritual, religious or anywhere on the scale in between. 

We are all different, so my bespoke ceremonies are tailored with the words, vows and promises that are important  to you.  You're in safe hands.

The sky is the limit!

            I have a passion for working with couples from diverse backgrounds and communities, embracing the rich tapestry of human experiences including LGBTQ+, multicultural, and multiracial clients.  

I believe that every love story deserves to be celebrated with reverence and authenticity.

Whatever the reasons behind the ceremony, they are incredibly important milestones in all our lives.  These ceremonies, and the significant words that are shared, may only happen the once, so they have to be the very best.             

The ‘very best’ is the ceremony that you picture in your mind's eye.  

I am here to help with the rest, realising your dream, exactly what you hoped for, whilst making the process as stress-free as possible. 

Your ceremony is in safe hands.

Together we can create something that speaks to the heart, 

is beautiful & authentic, 

 making wonderful memories that will last, always.
