A "We do".....
Award-winning Yorkshire celebrant. Ceremonies across the life cycle lovingly crafted with you, for you
“What’s your story?”. Perhaps it is a love story? A magical "I do" or a "we still do". Maybe it’s a “welcome to the world” and a naming ceremony? Perhaps it’s a story of a life lived, a person now gone and a fond uniquely personal goodbye? As a civil celebrant, I believe that love is love. I create inclusive ceremonies for people of all faiths and none. I am Deborah and I am an award-winning celebrant A listener, a narrator, and a storyteller. As a professional celebrant, I am here to listen to your individual stories, to be curious about your journey, and to bring it all together into one heartfelt, truly unique and memorable ceremony. A ceremony that is crafted with you, for you.
The true to you logo
You may not be familiar with Maori culture, and I do not claim to be an expert. The Koru symbol is the Maori word for "loop" and refers to new shoots of the silver fern. The spiral-shaped Koru design is derived from this unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to 'going back to the beginning'. The unfurling frond itself is symbolic for new life, new beginnings, hope, perfection, rebirth, a new start, awakening. personal growth, purity, nurturing, a new phase (in life), the spirit of rejuvenation and peace.
I lived and worked in New Zealand for several years and named my firstborn child after the New Zealand silver fern. It felt appropriate to have one as my logo symbolising all I stand for as a celebrant.
