Guerlain, although we lost contact the memories we had together when we were younger were always filled with so much fun and laughter, I look back now and they still make me laugh. You truly are a beautiful soul inside and out and will be in our hearts forever. You'll be missed. Sending all my love always xxxx

Gorgeous Guerlain, a dear soul with an infectious spirit. A devastating loss to her family and friends and all those who were lucky enough to have met her. Shine on Guerlain.

Guerlain. That name conjours up a thousand wonderful memories and feelings. What an extraordinary , funny, caring young woman who had the gift of making you feel as if you were the one person she wanted to see that day. Hardworking, selfless, so caring and warm. Hilariously funny, especially the conversations between her and Tilly. We shared times on the beach, times on walks, times around a meal table and all of them so much more wonderful for the presence of the beautiful person that was Guerlain.
Life will not be the same without you.
Our thoughts and love go out to all her family.

It was with utter disbelief that we all learned of Guerlains sudden passing.
She was, genuinely, such a beautiful soul surely on the cusp of what I know would have been a hugely fulfilling life in which she would, I have no doubt, have done great things and touched so many more people very deeply. Indeed, in the cruelly short time she was with us, she has already touched so many of us. Her bright energy, warmth and kindness lit the room and indeed it did on so many occasions where we saw her with Tilly at The Smelt family home where she was deeply loved and held, quite rightly, in such high regard and esteem.
Indeed, my own 18 year old daughter said when we last saw her at ‘Smeltfest’ in September, how extraordinary Guerlain was, and that in itself I think sums up how special she was.
Guerlain was utterly guileless and so selfless, kind, caring, warm and just lovely. Certainly she was an Old Soul and gone from us far, far too soon.
Our deepest sympathies to Guerlains family who’s loss is unimaginable. Our hearts go out to you all.
Much love Jules, Phil, Lucy, Anna and Sebastian. Xxxxxx



All of our family have been shocked and devasted by the news. We knew Guerlain only for a short while before she left school for college. She made a huge impression on us all. Fun loving, sweet, kind, with a wisdom and maturity for her years; her natural beauty and spirit warmed us all. We also knew that she was hard working and determined, sharing in a sense of pride for her when we heard that she had got into Kings. She will always be remembered, with very much love. Angie O’Rourke and family



In loving memory of Guerlain Bellinger. With all our love Kaz, Rick, Tilly & Holly

Darling Guerlain
A light has gone out.
You burst into our lives like a glorious ray of sunshine after meeting Tilly in year 7 at school. Since then you were a firm fixture in our lives, part of the family and a special friend to Tilly. Without fail, anyone who met you, loved you. You were warm, caring, hardworking and utterly selfless. And you were so funny; our enduring memory will be of the laughter which always filled the house when you and Tilly were larking about, or sharing a joke.
It was a joy watching you grow into a beautiful young woman on the cusp of her exciting adult life. We were so proud when you went off to university to immerse yourself in study and life in London, which you loved. Naturally, you made lots of friends and touched many more lives with your warmth and fun.
Our love and deepest sympathy go to your wonderful family for their loss is unimaginable.
Guerlain, we love and miss you so much. You will be always in our thoughts and forever in our hearts.
Kaz, Rick, Holly and Tilly xxxx

Guerlain has been the most wonderful and caring friend to me since the day we met. Our bus journeys never failed to make me laugh and her kind-heartedness will surely be missed. We are all so proud of what you achieved. Keep smiling up there Guerlain, you're missed by so many.

From Milly, Lucy and Sam x



You were such a beautiful person inside and out and always made everyone laugh and smile. We all had the pleasure of sharing so many amazing memories with you, which we will never forget, rest peacefully Guerlain we will love and miss you always xxx



Fond memories at our primary school.

Barbara and Chris Smelt


Guerlain was the kind of person that was always immediately present and keenly interested in asking about you. She was always had a smile to share and was always up for fun. At such a young age, Guerlain was an old soul. We got to know her at her second home - the Smelts in Walberton. Everytime we came to visit from Canada, Guerlain was always there with Tilly. The two of them always had great fun together and were amazing friends! We had the pleasure of celebrating Ricko's 60th birthday with Guerlain's in Punta Cana. Such amazing memories were created! We were so thrilled that she worked hard to start her uni career. Well done you!
We hope that her lasting legacy is to inspire others to be so present, so kind, so full of fun! She will be so missed. It is with unbelievable sadness we write this. RIP dear Guerlain.
Much love from the Scarborough Smelts in Canada xox

Helen Murphy


Guerlain was a special best friend to Christina during her primary school years. We have fond memories of that time. We are thinking of you all.



Even though we didn’t spend a lot of time together, je sais que tu étais un jolie petit rayon de soleil. You always made me smile. It’s sad to know that you are no longer here.. We will surely and truly miss you..



Although I had only met you a few times it was an absolute pleasure you were a very bright polite honest young lady and this world has definitely lost a dear soul RIP Angel you will be truly missed by all of those who had the pleasure to know you x
