J&N'23 at Chafford Park

Finding a celebrant felt daunting to us at first - where would we start? How would we know?! But as soon as we finished our initial zoom chat with Debs all of that became obvious. From start to finish, Debs guided us through our ceremony, helping us to build it exactly how we wanted. We couldn’t have wished for a more personal ceremony and all of our guests commented on that and how at ease Debs made everyone feel. It was even all of the little touches that meant so much, such as knowing all the key people in our wedding party so she could say hi to them before the ceremony. Chatting to those doing readings to help put them at ease. Even sending us an album of ‘getting ready’ photos from around the site that we wouldn’t have had the time to see. We cannot recommend her highly enough - she played such an important role in our day and we will always look back on our time with her fondly.

Amazing experience with Embrace Celebrancy

From our first meeting with Deborah, we knew we wanted her to be our Wedding Celebrant. Deborah exudes warmth and infectious positive energy, and her passion for putting together and performing the perfect ceremony is so clear the minute you meet.

The process was easy, enjoyable even, to re-live our story and every single detail we mentioned in our meetings was included. I have a son who I was desperately trying to make sure felt included in the day, and Deborah wove him into the Ceremony in such a beautiful way that it brought him, and many others, to tears.

I felt in safe hands in the months leading up to the wedding, and I felt taken care of on the day. Deborah has such a special way of extracting all the important details through conversation, and interlacing them into the most personal, special ceremony. Outside of this, she is only too happy to liaise with other suppliers, photographers and event organisers to really make sure your wedding goes as smoothly as possible. We chose to write our own vows, and Deborah kindly offered not only to read them to make sure we were both aligned in our styles, but printed them on gorgeous paper which matched our wedding theme so we looked professional on the day, and now have them to keep forever.

I cannot thank her or rave about her enough, she’s the best decision we made for our wedding and the words she put together are something we’ll cherish for years to come.

Fantastic & Magical Moments, Lovingly Crafted by Debra!!!

We met Debra, from Embrace Celebrancy at a wedding fayre, and out of nowhere we were introduced to the world of celebrants!! Her passion and charisma spurred us on to look into this option and we never looked back! Debra provided us with a truly incredible ceremony, all of our guests agreed it was one of the highlights of the day!

Debra spent several evenings and phone calls plus various email exchanges to learn about us, our relationship and crafted a magical and truly touching ceremony bespoke to us. It was truly magical and we couldn't imagine the day being the same without her love and soul which she ploughed into our big day.

We look forward to including Debra in all of our future family events, as a true icon and look forward to welcoming her back to celebrate many other events!!

If you are unsure how you want to organise your ceremony, be sure to give Debra a message or call, and she may just inspire you to make the best day even greater!!!

Thank you so much Debra and the Embrace Celebrancy team ❤️ xx

Personal and perfect!

Debs was absolutely perfect - she took the time to get to know us and wrote a ceremony that really reflected us as a couple. We had several meetings in the run up to the day, and Debs even sent a draft of the ceremony to us in advance, so we felt really in control of how things would go.

All of our guests thought she was fantastic too - not a dry eye in the house!

I could not recommend Debs highly enough. An absolute pleasure!!

The most amazing celebrant !

Debs was the celebrant for my wedding in Menorca and honestly I can’t thank her enough for everything. From start to finish she was just totally amazing and so supportive with any worries or queries we had.
Her words that she wrote for us was just beautiful and she really took the time out to get to know us and understand the type of people we are.
On the day she helped out with the organisation and setting up of our wedding which was just over and above what she was there to do.
Honestly Debs is just the kindest and most caring person you will ever meet and from the bottom of my heart I thank you.

Super Debs!

Debs is the most wonderful person and has very quickly become a special person in our lives. From the moment we met her we felt at ease and felt as though she had known us forever. Debs is more than a celebrant, she is a friend, cheerleader and organiser all wrapped in one! She really went above and beyond every step of the way.
Debs, we love you!

The most perfect ceremony and the most perfect celebrant!

We honestly can’t thank Debs enough for helping to make our wedding ceremony so perfect. During the 11 months that we were working with Debs, we felt like we gained a friend as well as a celebrant. She was so flexible and willing to fit into our family life and routines during our meetings, even becoming a human climbing frame for our two little wild ones! Debs captured our story, not only of us as a couple, but also as a family, perfectly. She really took the time to get to know us- the whole ceremony was completely bespoke, including a wonderful tree-planting ceremony for Ozzie, Indie and their guideparents. Our special day was not just about celebrating our marriage, but also our little tribe of 4. Debs worked her magic and her precious words made sure that the individual personalities of our little ones shone through. The ceremony was relaxed, full of love, happy tears and smiles (and wasn’t complete without a spot of wrestling from the kids, who were loving the limelight!). We’d recommend Debs as your celebrant for any occasion/event and we hope to see you again in the future! THANK YOU! 💕

Celebrant and More!


Deborah is absolutely amazing! We first met with Deborah a year before our ceremony, and during that year she became so much more than just a celebrant. We met with Deborah a few times over the year to have some tea and cake, and just chat (we really looked forward to these meetings!).

From our discussions, Deborah created a wonderful and personalised wedding/vow renewal ceremony for us; her script and wording were beautiful, and she is certainly very creative (she even wrote a poem for the two of us, as part of her script!). Our guests commented on what a beautiful and lovely ceremony it was, and how personalised it was.

During our meetings, as we were discussing how the ceremony would look, we said that it would be lovely to stand underneath an arch as we said our vows. Deborah instantly agreed to arrange this for us – she had a garden arch that she said she would decorate with flowers of our colours etc. We did not see the arch (until we walked down the aisle), but we trusted Deborah. We were right to do so, when we walked down the aisle, we were amazed at how stunning it looked. Deborah had not only decorated an arch for us, she had also decorated the area with lights, and created a ‘stage’ with mini fences, entwined with lights. It really created a romantic atmosphere.

Deborah was our celebrant for our ceremony; however, she ended up doing so much more than that on the morning of our wedding. There were a couple of operation issues with the venue (suppliers unsure of where to go etc), Deborah completely took charge and dealt with everything. We spoke to another of our suppliers after the wedding, and she said, “Your celebrant was great and so helpful.”

Deborah may have the name of a celebrant, but on the day she did many additional things for us, and she did them all with kind words, humour, and always with a big smile.

Thank you so much Deborah!

Thank you!

Debs conducted the most beautiful ceremony. She was able to craft a story around our relationship which included comedic references whilst still being serious and feeling appropriate to us. Our guests commented that it just felt like a perfect summary of how our relationship has developed and evolved over the years. She even managed to include some subtle quotes from our favourite book series without it feeling cheesy. Thank you so much for the support that you were able to provide on the day and the beautiful ceremony

Amazing 🤩 thank goodness we chose you.

Quite honestly I cannot describe our experience We both had on our wedding day with Deborah being my celebrant. Firstly can I just say how warm and welcoming she was from the first meeting to the last phone call (in Panic) days before our wedding,we spoke many times and met many times in between. but I must say on my wedding day that was when I really appreciated Deborah services. She was so helpful kind caring and nothing was too much. Quite frankly there is too much to explain to you guys how truly grateful I was to have her there with me on my wedding day. I really think if she was there all day as a planner/choreographer, my day would have been extra perfect. Still to this day, (5 weeks later) all my friends and family are talking about how amazing our services was. Thank you Deborah not only for your Service, but I honestly felt like you was a best friend
