Your memories are as unique as you are – and it is Debra’s job is to make your ceremony, your special occasion, whatever you want it to be.

Plan A Beautiful, Personalised Remembrance Service

I recognise the importance of this occasion, and will write a service that is formal in its idealism, whilst being sensitive, empathetic, respectful and compassionate, written not only to celebrate your loved one’s life, but how they lived it, who they were, and what they meant to you. I promise the utmost respect and dignity at all times, and to give comfort to those who are grieving.


Some kind words from some of our couples

Leanne & Dave

Debra was everything we could have hoped for in a celebrant, charismatic, professional, beyond helpful and her attention to detail was outstanding.

She met with us several times to discuss our ceremony, providing us with examples of readings and ceremony ideas.  We were both nervous about doing our own vows but with Debra’s help she made it a stress free, enjoyable process.

Debra ensured our ceremony was intimate and modern.   She did a fantastic job writing and delivering a ceremony that was genuine and true to us. It felt very personal and we couldn’t of felt more comfortable.

We still receive compliments, on how much our guests enjoyed our ceremony.  We would highly recommend her services. Thank you Deb for being such a wonderful celebrant!

Pascale & Tom

Having Debra as our Marriage Celebrant was the best choice we could have made to have a hassle-free, very personal and relaxed wedding ceremony.

Along with a very professional approach, Debra fills your ceremony with warmth and laughter, for an unforgettable day.

Kevin Payne

“I was looking for a fun person to assist me  with the surprise Renewal of our Wedding Vows dinner and was lucky to find Deb on the net.  Deb not only joined in on the fun I planned but added to it with her thoughts and energy.  Nothing was too much trouble as I changed the ceremony wording several times and asked Deb to vary the ceremony procedure just a little to suit our plans.  This she did with a smile and delivered a great ceremony on the day.  I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a “personal feeling” in their ceremony”.  

Olivia & Charlie

Debra was a very caring and understanding celebrant. She spent much of her time listening to our story and writing it. She made sure that the story was interesting, fun and very personal.
She ran by everything by us until we were happy.  At the ceremony there were lots of laughs and we received many comments from our guests who enjoyed the ceremony.
I would recommend Debra - she is attentive and she really cares about the people involved.

Hayley & Andy

Our honeymoon was amazing, as was our wedding. We are getting a lot of comments about how heartfelt, relaxed and honest the ceremony was - a few people have even said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Thanks so much for making it amazing and exactly what we wanted.
