About Me

I am an Authorised Civil Celebrant appointed in 2013, who brings passion and a dynamic approach to your special day.
I have conducted several Wedding Ceremonies and am able to help you bring your ideal Ceremony to life.

I am professionally trained and legally authorised to conduct civil marriage ceremonies, as well as other ceremonies, including:

Your ceremony is something that we will create together and on the day of your wedding,
it is my role to make it a reality and ensure that it reflects who you are as individuals and as a couple.



We contacted Bell exactly 3 1/2 weeks before our wedding date as originally we were supposed to marry at the registry. It was cancelled due to COVID-19 Bell took on our wedding and helped us get all the paperwork in time. As you can imagine it was very stressful for me and my husband but she was very accommodating and supportive. I felt at ease and less stressed because Bell was so prompt at emailing and messaging me back. When we met Bell, instantly I felt her warmth and her genuineness. She did really well at making our ceremony individualised to cater specifically to our small wedding by suggesting things that we had not thought of. She went above and beyond to make our wedding day extra special and for that I will always be grateful. You truly did make our day so much more special by being apart of it. We can’t Thankyou enough Bell xx 💗 the Sampson’s

We are so lucky to have chosen Isabella as our Marriage Celebrant for our special day. She’s just so nice and thoughtful and has warm nature. Thank you so much for helping us making beautiful memories that last a lifetime.
Cherry and Andrew
We Just wanted to say thank-you for making our day so special. The Ceremony was exactly how I imagined it to be, it was everything we wanted and more. Even with the giggles mid way through the ceremony over the missing rings, we couldn’t imagine our day any other way. Isabella you truly made us feel comfortable and at home under our family's very special Fig Tree. Both Frank and I clicked the moment we had our first meeting and will highly recommend Isabella for her warmth, kindness and beautiful personality.
Ashleigh and Frank
We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. Isabella (Bella Bella Ceremonies) was very professional and well-presented. Her warm and personable nature made it easy for us to get across what we wanted for our ceremony in which she delivered flawlessly. She went the extra mile and created a great vibe for our ceremony. We really couldn't have asked for more. Highly Recommended by Tameka and Richie Taylor.

Graham and I were married on a P&O Cruise Ship 1st March 2019 by Bella Bella Ceremonies. We received many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was, and that’s thanks to Bell. Her services were affordable and she kept us informed of the progress of the red tape. We are most grateful to Isabella for accommodating all our wishes for a simple, heartfelt ceremony. Thanks again Bell.
Meredith & Graham
I met Isabella at work many years ago. On the day I left this job, she told me she was a Marriage Celebrant and if I ever got married to contact her. I saved her details and fast forward a couple of years to Currumbin February 2019. It was a blessing having her with me from the start of the planning of the ceremony up until the wedding day. During the planning phase I didn't have to worry about the Ceremony because we knew were in good hands and that all was taken care of. Bell was well prepared and handled everything to perfection. Thank you so much!!
Chantal & Nic & Bella
We would like to thank Bell for helping us organise our Commitment Ceremony. From the time we first spoke on the phone and at our first meeting, she made us feel relaxed. Isabella wrote our Ceremony to suit us, we enjoyed getting to know each other as we shared our lives through writing our special vows. Everything flowed smoothly, there were a few tears from the bride, but Bell made us both relaxed, happy & special on our day. We would Highly Recommend Bella Bella Ceremonies to family and friends and anyone wanting to have such a lovely friendly special lady for your wedding day.
Jenny & David
I would like to sincerely thank Isabella for being so incredible during our wedding journey. She is so professional, friendly and easy going. We had two young children of our own and another 5 in our wedding party and they all felt at ease. She was so wonderful with the children and everyone involved. The ceremony was so beautiful and felt it was special to us and our family. Isabella listened to what we wanted and delivered it perfectly. Personally I was terrified of public speaking however Isabella made me feel at ease and after practice I said my own vows with a microphone and it felt so special. Thank you Isabella for a wonderful wedding ceremony. I highly recommend you to everyone. Love Donna & Dan
Donna & Dan
Thank you so much for being there every step of the way during our wedding planning and Ceremony. Our small ceremony was held on New Year's Eve 2018 and it could not have been more perfect thanks to Bell. We definitely recommend Bella Bella Ceremonies.
Monique & Jamison
Thanks so much for making our day so easy! You helped me stay organised, calm and ready to go for our big day. You made our ceremony totally 'ours' - Sweet Simple and Perfect. From the initial organising stages to the rehearsal to the ceremony you made Guy and I feel so comfortable. As a Celebrant you go above and beyond. Thank you so much Bell as our day wouldn't have been as wonderful without you as our Celebrant 💛
Stacey and Guy
Thank you Isabella for a wonderful ceremony. As we had both been married before we wanted something low key and unique - Isabella delivered that for us. Isabella is very friendly and approachable. She was happy to do exactly as we requested. We recommend Isabella for your wedding, renewal of vows or commitment ceremony. Mr and Mrs Paragreen
Rosita & David
We are very sincerely grateful to you for the remarkable and memorable day you have organized for us. Your courteous and delightful voice was full of kindness and welcome. To be honest, we were nervous on the wedding day, but you led us go through the whole wedding process very well. Thoughtfully, you let me (Jianing ) read the wedding vows on the paper instead of following your voice. It was much easier for me to complete the vows without any mistakes. Please never stop the beautiful way of your work for the people who are getting marriage.
Jianing and Steven
Dearest Isabella, We wanted to write to thankyou once again for the beautiful and personal ceremony you created for our wedding day. From start to finish, even with most correspondence being from the other side of the world, you made us feel comfortable, relaxed and completely assured that our service would be the best and most perfect that it could be. Aside from helping us through all of the legalities required for us to marry in Australia, you went out of your way to make sure we received our marriage certificate before we left for home again. That's what you call service! You included our girls and made them feel confident in their roles as bridesmaids with your gentle leading and guidance and held the ceremony with the same, allowing us to enjoy every second of it. We couldn't have asked for a better, or nicer celebrant to witness our marriage and for that, we thank you again. We hope you will keep in touch and that we can meet up again when we next visit Oz! Our kindest regards and sincerest wishes of luck for you in the future. Shelley, Jon, Ellie-Mae and Betty-Lou Ewen. Xxx
Jon & Shelley
Thank you Isabella for making our 20th wedding anniversary re commitment ceremony exactly how we had envisaged it to be. We are so grateful for the beautiful ceremony that you performed for us. You made it feel like it was just about us. You made us feel so relaxed and took any nerves away with your calm nature. We felt you really understood us and helped make our day special. Isabella knew all the right words to say, her kind and lovely demeanour made not only us feel comfortable but also our 3 children. Without any hesitation we would strongly recommend Isabella to anyone wishing to renew vows, get married or commit themselves to each other. Thank you again Isabella. Mark and Jacinta xx
Mark & Jacinta
Can highly recommend Bella Bella Ceremonies. Isabella was very professional and the day turned out exactly how we had rehearsed. If you are planning on getting married you will not be disappointed with Bella Bella Ceremonies.
Andrew & Kelly
We were married 2nd June 2017. Isabella was wonderful to work with! She was very easy to communicate with while organising our wedding and gave great helpful hints throughout the organisation process. On the day she was amazing - she was very professional, ensured our day ran smoothly, and made sure everyone had a great time. Thanks Bell xxx
Nina & Rick
To our Marriage Celebrant Isabella - you are very professional, friendly, fun and easy going. Your calm approach during our Ceremony was very much appreciated. You went above and beyond to ensure we were both happy with what you prepared assisting and advising us regarding our personal vows. You accommodated the service around our blended family and some special requests on the day. You were the perfect person to be involved in our special day – thank you so very much. We have already, and will continue to recommend you to our friends.
Julie & Peter Seage
We had the pleasure of having Isabella as our celebrant on July 18, 2015. I had no experience when it came to weddings and asked millions of questions and nothing was too much trouble for Isabella. She was always so quick to respond to us and kept us up to date the whole journey. We were so impressed by Isabella when we met her, we decided we didn’t need to see any other celebrants, which was one of the best wedding decisions we made. Isabella made our wedding so enjoyable and kept our guests interested in what she had to say next with her loving words and great sense of humour and I had so many guests telling me that they thought she was fantastic. Isabella... you are in the perfect job as I could not imagine anyone else doing a better job than what you did for us so on behalf of Daniel and myself, Thank You

“Isabella is a beautiful woman who brings her heart and soul to her vocation. She believes in love and romance, and yet is very obliging and respectful of her client’s needs. She is well spoken, suitably dressed for the occasion and emanates class and dignity. She brings forth stories about the couple, choosing to make the ceremony individualised and unique for each couple. Whether you are wanting a truly romantic celebration, or, like us, who had been married previously, a more casual and light-hearted affair, she accommodates all your needs professionally and carefully. I think she was made this… you can tell she loves performing the ceremony and enjoys being a part of something personal, memorable and very special. She is fabulous!”
With only four days to prepare and perform, Isabella managed to tell our EPIC love story to our family and friends as if she had known us for years on end. Thank you Issy for the important part you played in making our dream come true on our wedding day...and the awesome way in which you did it." We really appreciate how caring, interested and efficient you were when we called on you. Anyone who has you as their celebrant is fortunate.
We would like to thank you for making our special day happy and relaxed. You conducted the ceremony professionally, efficiently and with a sense of warmth, even when there was the slight hiccup of us forgetting to bring the rings. So many people came up to us and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. You made our day very special, and we would highly recommend your services.
Mr & Mrs Murphy
You did a brilliant job and helped design the perfect ceremony for us. You were professional and down to earth, making it so easy to work with you to ensure our day was exactly how we'd hoped. The ceremony is our most favourite memory. You helped etch an everlasting memory and for that, we are forever grateful.
Mr & Mrs Delahunty

Let’s celebrate your wedding
