Diana Wilkinson - Celebrant

I believe in choice and choosing the right person to plan and deliver your ceremony is very important so here you’ll find a little about me, Diana Wilkinson. I love tradition but I’m also fond of the unusual. Most importantly, I think your ceremony should be as individual as you are. I’m a fully qualified, independent celebrant, based on the coast in the north of England (between Scarborough and Whitby). I cover North Yorkshire, Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire, Teesside, Northumberland, Redcar and Cleveland, plus parts of West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and Lancashire. Happy to travel further – just ask! Scroll to learn more about me.

Your Ceremony by Diana

Diana Wilkinson

I have always been captivated by the power of ceremonies to bring people together and mark significant milestones. I realise the profound impact these moments have on people’s lives. The joy, the tears, and the shared emotions are transformative. There was a moment when the experiences, passions and skills I had gathered so far aligned and led me towards this extraordinary path. As a celebrant, I play a pivotal role in crafting and conducting ceremonies that not only mark significant milestones but become cherished lifetime memories. Being a celebrant is an absolute honour and I love it.

My training

Anyone who knows me knows I don’t do things half-heartedly. I sought the best training available and achieved the National Qualification Level 3 Diploma in Naming and Couples Celebrancy, accredited by National Open College Network (NOCN). I am DBS checked, have a safeguarding policy, and comply with GDPR. I keep up-to-date with the latest developments and regulations and am a member of the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC).

The services I offer

I live on the Yorkshire coast with my husband and an energetic spaniel.  I’m also a Registered Nurse with a first-class honours degree and continue to work for a national charity that supports individuals affected by a specific condition.

I am pleased to offer professional ceremonies, delivered with passion, care and attention to detail. I craft and conduct bespoke Wedding and Civil Partnership Celebration Ceremonies, Vow Renewal, Commitment, Transition, Naming and Welcoming ceremonies. In addition, because I know personally how devastating the death of a pet can be, I also conduct Pet Memorial services.

My vision

It is my wish that every couple or individual planning a ceremony be made aware that they can have a bespoke ceremony that is tailored to their exact wishes, and that can happen through a professional celebrant.
