As a practising Pagan I've been a guest and participant at many handfastings over the years but I have no hesitation in saying that the ceremony Debra put together for my friends Yara and Antony was the most personal, inclusive and well organised that I've ever attended.
The largely non-pagan family and friends of the couple were made so welcome and were never left wondering about the meaning of the ritual and significance of the different parts of it as Debra made clear throughout what was happening and what it meant. She had also included the couple's close family and friends so they were actively involved rather than just observing from the sidelines. As Yara is originally from Spain Debra had even arranged for the most significant parts of the ceremony to be translated into the bride's native language so that the several Spanish guests could easily follow the proceedings.
Everything went without a hitch (pardon the pun!) and Debra's hard work made the occasion into something memorable, moving and truly special. I can only imagine the hours she must have put in planning this deeply personal, heart-warming and delightful celebration. Anyone who chooses Debra to be the celebrant for their handfasting or any other rite of passage will not be disappointed as her warmth, dedication and attention to detail is second to none.
