Debbie Skyrme - Celebrant Spain

Wedding Testimonials

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

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

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!

Being an attendant at Wim and Pascale’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 Pascale 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 Pascale. 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.

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.

So, we had the crazy idea to renew our vows after 30 years of marriage because back then it was not really our ceremony. We had to consider family and hey, we were young, we always said that one day we would renew our vows and make it our special moment.
Debbie listened to us carefully and asked us lots of questions and she found the perfect spot to have our ceremony, everything was picture perfect, it was like she was in our head.
She perfectly understood what we wanted

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 ❤️

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.

I chose Debbie to be my wedding celebrant because she has a lovely calm manner and beautiful speaking voice and I knew she would be very professional at her job.

When we fluffed a couple of lines, she kept the whole ceremony flowing smoothly!
She crafted our ceremony to include our own vows to each other which made it very personal and completed the wedding with a beautiful poem of her own.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Debbie as a wedding celebrant.

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.

The owners of our beautiful Spanish wedding venue recommended Debbie to officiate the proceedings for us and we were so glad that we agreed.
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!
