Celebrant / Officiant
Outbound Destination Wedding Specialist
Full Description
Known for my big smile and genuine warmth, as your wedding officiant I will get to know you with an open heart and an open mind by asking questions that get to the very heart of your relationship. Then with skilled penmanship, I will craft a ceremonial celebration of your marriage that reflects your values, your story and your personalities – in English, Spanish or a blend of both. ~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~. I offer two categories of wedding, both are secured in my diary by a first retainer fee payment of €200 to save your date – very important! ~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~. Then we can talk about the most appropriate wedding ceremony for you – my personalised traditional ceremony or a bespoke ceremony with rituals. ~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~. Inspired by everything I learn from you I will truly personalise your traditional wedding, elopement or vow renewal ceremony script with words and readings that will resonate with you both. ~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~. Or by opting for an even more special bespoke ceremony we can include rituals that relate to your values and beliefs or achieve a special purpose such as joining two families together.

Perfect Vow Renewal
So we had the crazy idea to renew our vows after 30 years of marriage because then it was not our ceremony. You had the consider family and hey we were young 🥰 we always said that one day we will renew our vows and make it our special moment. Debbie listen to us and asked us a lot of things and she found the perfect spot to have our ceremony. everything was pitch perfect. it was like she was in our head. She perfectly understood what we wanted.

Personal bespoke service
From the word go, Debbie was a delight to work with for our wedding ceremony in the south of Spain. Over just a few Skype conversations, Debbie really listened and understood us and our story, doing a wonderful job of translating that for our guests into a script that made us both tear up when we first read it. She recommended options for traditional Spanish rituals that we loved and hadn't come across before (e.g. Arras coin ceremony) and her warmth and energy throughout the service brought all our guests into our moment - many of them commented on how beautiful and personal Debbie's bespoke service was. We couldn't recommend Debbie highly enough. Thank you Debbie.

blown away by how passionate you are
Here is my heartfelt and genuine testimonial. Debbie, from the first moment we met you we were blown away with how passionate and happy you were about what you do. You instantly made us feel completely at ease. We couldn’t have managed without your advice and guidance. You created the most beautiful, relaxed, enjoyable and amazingly special ceremony we could have ever asked for. You ensured that my bride and I felt comfortable and were totally supported, before and throughout the whole ceremony with your warmth and gentle guidance. You allowed us to relax and enjoy the day, by just knowing that you and your smile were there looking out for us. We had such a mind-blowingly special day and you will be always and forever an integral part of it. It’s no exaggeration when I say that the all our guests commented on how awesome our ceremony was compared to many they had been to before. This was totally due to you as the celebrant with your beautiful, relaxed and friendly manner. I will certainly highly recommend you. Steven

What is your most memorable wedding?

I was privileged beyond words to officiate the wedding ceremony of my two dearest friends at their stunning cortijo in the heart of rural Andalucia surrounded by olive trees as far as the eye could see. Truly memorable.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Smiley. Warm. Fun. Responsible. Empathetic.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Being a celebrant for me is the vocation that just keeps on giving.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

If a reading or poem does not speak to you as if it were written especially for you, leave it out. This is your special day and every little detail should be bespoke and perfect.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

As we are in Spain, it is not always possible for all of the important family members to be present. So livestreaming the ceremony enables everyone to feel a part of the celebrations.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A face to face chat either in person or online is the absolute most important first step. Simply put, my couples must like me and feel that I "get" them in order for me to begin crafting their bespoke script. I never ask for a commitment immediately, I insist they go away and think about me.... after all, without the celebrant the wedding won't happen so this decision is more important even than choosing the bride's dress!

What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?

No question is too small or too silly and nothing that I would consider to be unusual comes to mind re the wedding planning.

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

I ensure that everyone knows exactly what their role is during the wedding ceremony and I gently hand-hold every step of the way.

What do you love most about your job?

Top wedding planning tip: Interview a number of celebrants before you choose one.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

My favourite moment at the wedding is THE KISS!
