Chelsea Duke


I am an independent professional Celebrant crafting bespoke ceremonies, reflecting the personality, beliefs and interests of the family or couple involved. I have led Druid ceremonies, as well as spiritual or totally non-religious services. Each ceremony I write is created specifically for that individual or couple so it is genuinely unique and tailored to you.

I am based in Winchester, Hampshire and will celebrate services in the surrounding areas of Hampshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire and Sussex but am also prepared to travel further afield if required, offering funerals, memorial services, marriage celebrations, or handfasting. I am also a qualified Funeral Director providing funeral consultancy should you wish to limit the involvement of a Funeral Director or need advice on how to manage a DIY funeral. I am a Bardic Grade OBOD member and work with the Sylvan Grove in the New Forest. It’s important to me to find beautiful words to honour a life or to celebrate love and I’m passionate about creating meaningful and personal ceremonies. I really enjoy working with those who want to create a unique and memorable ceremony, perhaps in a non-traditional venue. For more information, please email or visit my website here.


Learn more about Druidry and how to join the order

The practice of Druidry used to be confined to those who could learn from a Druid in person. But now you can take an experience-based course wherever you live, and when you enrol on this course, you join the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids, and begin an adventure that thousands of people all over the world have taken. It works with the ideas and practices of Druidry in a thoroughly practical, yet also deeply spiritual way.
