From the very first moment we made contact with Debbie we could tell that she was the right person to act as our celebrant on our special day. Her warmth, kindness and attention to detail were clear to see from our initial Skype conversation. Debbie asked us to fill out a questionnaire each and we had numerous conversations so that she could make sure that the tone of our wedding day was perfect for us. During these conversations prior to the wedding, Debbie’s great sense of humour and enthusiasm really shone through. On the day Debbie brought a sense of fun and positivity to proceedings which made the day so enjoyable for both us, and all our guests. She even agreed to join in with our flash mob dance! On top of this Debbie also recommended good suppliers for services such as floristry, music and photography. We would highly recommend Debbie Skyrme to anyone who wants a truly bespoke, personal and fun ceremony in the future.
I nearly ended up in traction, but I wouldn't have missed your flashmob dance recessional for the world my lovelies!!!

Debbie was an amazing celebrant, she helped make the whole process of putting the ceremony together so much easier and made it a wonderful day.
Congratulations to you both and thank you so much for choosing me to officiate your special day at such an auspicious venue.
Sunborn, Gibraltar | September 2019
WOW what a beautiful wedding day. From start to finish was exceptional, very special.
You coined the phrase " you bloody did it",,, but if it hadn't have been for you we would still be lost. Your help support guidance and kindness was incredible. How you listened to our funny intimate story was amazing. You then transferred it to a beautifully delivered script for the day. You gave us ideas how to include our children and join our families as one. Both James and I had a lot of nerves about the day and on the day but you gave us peace of mind and we didn't have to worry about a thing . From start to finish you guided us through to a beautiful and unforgettable wedding ceremony.
You are a truly beautiful and gifted lady and we can not recommend you enough as a wedding celebrant.
Joining two cultures as well as two families was very special - Spanish and English - what an emotional ceremony it was for all of us. Hoping you still have your blended coloured sand?!
Nuevo y Sur Beach, Torremolinos | September 2019
Debbie is amazing she made our ceremony very intimate and personal throughout the whole blessing. The script for our ceremony Debbie put together for us really portrayed our relationship to our guests throughout the service. Debbie asked us previous on how we wanted our guests to feel during and after the service. We asked to show our laughter and love this is exactly how our guests felt. Thank you so much for everything we enjoyed every minute of it x
It was my absolute pleasure - even more so as it was my first ever barefoot wedding, can you believe it? The sand between our toes, I loved it!

Being an attendant at Wim and Pascal’s renewal of vows was such a happy, intimate and inspiring day. It was the first celebrant-led ceremony I’d attended so I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, to set the scene, the chosen hillside location overlooking a sparkling Mediterranean Sea, was very serene and intimate. Wim and Pascal swapped their vows in Flemish and English as they looked into each other’s eyes as the sun rose over the hill. It was so romantic and pretty emotional at times; especially renewing their wedding vows and love for each other after 30 years of marriage.
Debbie was an amazing celebrant; ensuring the renewal of vows and readings were bespoke, intimate and very personal to Wim and Pascal. This continued through to the wedding breakfast, which she went out of her way to co-ordinate, so they enjoyed a Moroccan-themed Champagne breakfast on the beach with their guests in between photographs being taken. The photographer, Simon, followed Debbie’s lead and kept it personal and fun.
I was very honoured to attend such a wonderful, happy and romantic wedding celebration. I’ve been telling all my friends about it, and wouldn’t hesitate to do it myself one of these days!
What an experience for your first celebrant-led ceremony!
The sunrise was so romantic, the salt ceremony made the space our own and the couple only had eyes for each other - I am truly glad you were able to share all of that "specialness".
.....and I have an empty space in my diary for you whenever you say the word Jenevora ;-)
Costa Tropical, Granada | July 2019
So we had a crazy idea to renew our vows after 30 years. Debbie, you became our best friend and also our celebrant. You were always their for us.
You found us the perfect place for the ceremony and the words you chose totally represented us.
The last few months and days you asked us different questions and today at the ceremony it all made sense .
You are a great celebrant.
Thank you so much for everything. Pascale and Wim, Belgium
You are both for ever in my heart - your love is tangible in so many ways. I adore you both!
Fuente Del Sol, Antequera | June 2019
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.
Your love story still gives me goose-bumps! #jamkat2019
Nerja, Spain | June 2019
If you are looking for a ceremony that is personal to you Debbie is the lady for you.
I would 100% recommend Debbie as your celebrant, we felt the service Debbie created was so personal to us,she met myself and my now husband on several occasions and listened to our wishes and our relationship story, by doing this Debbie was able to make our ceremony magical.
The ceremony was absolutely perfect and spoken from the heart.
Thank you so much ❤️
Debbie & Nigel x
It was such fun getting to know you both and crafting your ceremony. In fact it was a real privilege, thank you for the opportunity and best wishes for your future life together.
Hotel IPV Palace, Fuengirola | April 2019
Thanks for the excellent service you provided from the first email enquiry through our meetings and then the event itself we could not have wished for anything else.
You were excellent from start to finish; very professional, knowledgable and above all friendly to everyone. You organised everything as we desired, providing an excellent ceremony and we have received lots of comments from guests complimenting you. I quote “that was the most romantic wedding I’ve been to, I got married in a church and it wasn’t anywhere near as romantic as what I’ve just seen”
Debbie on behalf of Elaine and I thanks for everything and I will highly recommend you to anyone who wishes their day to be as special as ours was
The Spanish/Scottish fusion of your wedding was an absolute pleasure to officiate - a fun, personal ceremony full of laughter and giggles. Thanks so much for allowing me to be part of your special day xxx
La Cala Resort, Mijas | February 2019
Thank you so much Debbie for our beautiful wedding ceremony yesterday, it was just perfect.
We didn't get chance to thank you properly yesterday as it was all so surreal [heart emoji]
You made it really special and we just wanted to say thanks xxx
Zoe, I am soooooo happy for you both. Your ceremony was intimate, personal, beautiful and you are going to have such sweet photos with baby Scarlet [whom I held whilst the couple said their vows]. It was my pleasure, believe me. Kisses.

From Debbie’s first email, it was evident she was kind, caring and very knowledgeable. She was always available to answer any questions or queries and always came back with suggestions and ideas whenever we needed any help or support. Her calming and supportive nature will never be forgotten and it was very clear she absolutely loves what she does.
We genuinely cannot recommend Debbie enough - she made our amazing day complete - thank you so much Debbie!
We didn't meet until your Big Day Ellie, but we already knew each other so well from chatting online, it felt like I was officiating the wedding of two of my close friends.
It was quite simply, a perfect day and I am so happy for you both, Debbie xxx

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.
Crafting your wedding ceremony was my absolute pleasure. The location was stunning, you made such a beautiful couple and your love shone for all to witness. I wish you both every happiness, Debbie xxx
