Whether it is a wedding celebration, baby naming, funeral ceremony or other life-cycle event, I bring empathy, humour, a warm heart and a genuine desire to understand what will make your celebration special to you and to gently guide you through your day in this very special corner of mainland Spain.

These days a wedding is often a ceremony of two parts: the legal bit and the special bit.
With my Deputy Superintendent Registrar hat on, I can mesh the declaratory words you made at your legal marriage with your own very personal words of commitment to each other to blend your perfect bespoke wedding ceremony in the sunshine.


I’m a big believer in

….being in it for the long haul
…making a heartfelt promise to be together through the bad stuff as well as the good stuff
…celebrating that commitment in whatever way suits you best, witnessed by people who love you and wish you well
…modern day marriage in all its varying shapes and guises.

Mix all that with

… an easy laugh, the biggest of smiles, the warmest of words, proven experience and unerring professionalism and you have me (!) guiding you effortlessly through your perfect wedding ceremony.



I was born… I learned… I taught… I loved… I laughed… I cried… I died… We remember.

We are a people of customs and celebrations. We have someone help bring us into the world and we celebrate the name given to us. We seek a life-partner and celebrate that joining. And as life goes full circle, we often forget, get caught unawares, are embarrassed or simply leave it too late to look for someone to lead our final celebration on our behalf. A funeral celebrant.

Your Celebration of Life can be in your own home or a favourite location; a part of, or totally separate from, your internment or cremation; with traditional or wholly inappropriate music that makes everyone smile; your funeral ceremony can incorporate rituals, rites, readings, poems and singing; it can mix religion with non-religion... and throughout it all I will be the person to hold the hand of the people who loved you to guide them gently through your final celebration.

Debbie Skyrme offers an alternative, bespoke civil ceremony for the bereaved and those preparing their own end-of-life memorial.
