Pascale & Tom
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.

“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”. Kevin Payne
