Are you looking for a refreshingly modern, relaxed, fun yet professional ceremony which will incorporate your love story & your ideas….. I can certainly help you with that!   I have an extensive selection of suggestions and ideas on ceremonies – covering introductions, readings, declarations and vows. My commitment is to provide you a professional, personalised ceremony that reflects you both. 

A little about me …… I love good wine & coffee & of course chocolate!

I love to work with couples who want to enjoy their wedding day & to reflect who you are, be relaxing, interactive & fun ….. if this is you we’re a perfect match so call me 🙂  Don’t get me wrong your ceremony will still be emotional, loving & intimate – you just get to have a laugh & enjoy yourselves at the same time.

Planning a wedding can get stressful but lets work together to make your day absolutely fun & fabulous.  I have a strict “No Stressing” rule ….. if you’re getting stressed ring me & let’s have a chat ….. having been a celebrant for 9 years chances are I’ve heard most stuff!

I ask all my couples ; Do you want your ceremony to be more fun or emotional?  Most of the time the Groom say FUN & the Bride says EMOTIONAL!  So the vast majority of my ceremonies are a beautiful balance between the two.

That’s what makes my ceremonies different & very popular, they modern, interactive & we all get to have a laugh & cry while you get married.  You’ll have a great time & so will your quests.

If you’re not boring people why have a boring ceremony – finally you have a choice YAY

My commitment is to give you a ceremony that is fun & light, contemporary, emotional as hey its your wedding & definitely not boring.

I’m big on getting to know my couple’s & not being a stranger on your day!

I do ask some nosey questions to get information about the two of you (sometimes stalking may be involved hehe) that can be used in your ceremony so you’re wedding is actually about you – not something that’s been taken from the internet!

It’s important for me that when you both stand in front of your family & friends that you feel comfortable & love your ceremony & not think “o dear”!!!!!

Thats why it’s so important that you pick the right celebrant …. if you don’t you’ll likely to get a ceremony that suits the celebrant – not you!

I have a high quality sound system available to ensure your family & friends feel part of your special day at no extra charge.

We booked Debbie
after a Skype from London 2 years before our actual wedding here. She was so
warm and such a pleasure to deal with, and didn’t let us down on the day. All
our guests commented on how lovely she was and she was so welcoming and
professional throughout. I’d recommend her to anyone who asked. Thanks Debs!

Love Jamie & Carrie Xx


Debbie was an amazing
celebrant. She was flexible and open to all suggestions. When we were too fussy
for her suggested ceremonies she worked with us to create one that felt
incredibly personal and according to out guests was a highlight of their day.
Our ceremony was on the longish side (45mins) but because Debbie had worked
with us so closely it flew by and there definitely weren’t any awkward coughs
or shuffling chairs. We wrote our own vows and she provided feedback which
helped us keep them secret from each other but cohesive. There were very few
dry eyes during our ceremony. We also strongly encouraged audience
participation which could have been awkward had it not worked but Debbie had
exactly the right persons to pull this out of our guests, although possibly the
pre-ceremony alcohol might have helped her in this regard. In summary, Debbie
is simply amazing!!

Love Tash and Brent xx


Deb! You were
absolutely amazing and so perfectly suited to our personalities. There were
laughs, there were tears and there were cheers which is more than we would have
asked for during our ceremony. I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone who
wants a fun and down to earth ceremony with an amazing celebrant to work with.
Loads of people commented on how great our ceremony was and that is all thanks
to you. Thank you so so much!!! Xxx

To Debbie

Thank you so much for
everything that you did for our special day!
Everything was so well organized but also very fun, lid back & easy
going.  You kept us both calm even though
we hate public speaking in front of lots of people & being center of attention!  We couldn’t
t have asked for anything more!

Love Jason & Sandra x


Hi Deb,
Oh my God, best day ever!!! I seriously loved every minute of it, it was so
much fun, and didn’t even go too fast. Andy and I managed to sneak off a few
times to look back at all our guests having a great time and catch our breath
together, it was just perfect. I’ve had lots of comments on how awesome the
ceremony was and how lovely and calming you were, so thank you so much Debbie,
you nailed it 🙂  Thanks again Deb,
we’re absolutely still buzzing about the whole thing 🙂
Love Emma and Andy xx


Hi Debz
This is so overdue it’s not even funny!
Nick and I would just like to say a massive thank you to you for being
you!  You were amazing on our wedding
day. You held it together as you said you would.
Nick especially said you really calmed his nerves before the ceremony. I was up
on cloud nine and have only just come back down to earth.
Our wedding day was by far the most magical day or our lives….. Words do not
do it justice.   Thank you for
making it easy, fun and hassle free. From the moment we met you we knew we
would be in safe hands.
Kelly & Nick

Hey Debz

Thank you for being
an awesome celebrant, you really made us feel as relaxed as humanly possible on
such an intense day, and people were saying how your Dr Seuss intro throw them,
but in the best possible way, what a great silly way to start what we wanted to
be a relaxed, fun ceremony and I think these photos capture that.
