The Magical Celebrant

My wedding ceremonies are bespoke and personal, laced with magic featuring plenty of visual elements for you to treasure and to keep eyes on you.

Each ceremony is different because every couple is different. We'll get to know each other, I'll weave your love story into the script and guide you every step of way with glittering inspiration. 

I am an inclusive Celebrant with a passion for creating a ceremony that's out of this world. I've worked with over 50 couples to create the ceremony of their dreams.

This is your celebration and it's my honour to deliver a magical ceremony that's true and reflects you both.

Meet Laura Bell

Welcome to Ceremonies by Laura Bell (formally Fox & Star Ceremonies)

I'm a certified and insured Independent Celebrant based in Dorset and beyond! 

With a Celebrant you can get "married" anywhere subject to the landowner's permission. I'm proud to be the first Celebrant to have officiated a wedding ceremony on Weymouth Beach.

I work with a wide range of wedding venues in Weymouth and along the South Coast of England. 

If you're looking to upgrade your wedding ceremony to something that's more personal, I'd love to chat. 


“Our ceremony was without a doubt the most magical part of our wedding day and Laura's structure and delivery made up a huge part of that. It's not always just about that, it's also in a celebrants ability to put you at ease in a moment that can be quite nerve wracking. Laura gave off nothing but good positive energy and within 5 minutes of meeting her I felt as though I had known her for a long time. The rituals we chose were great and everything was so very professional. Thanks Laura!”
