Deborah Jenkins

Deborah prides herself on her professionalism and attention to detail, creating a wedding ceremony that reflects the feelings, beliefs and personality of the couple. She likes to maintain the solemnity of the occasion as well as adding humour if and when required. Most importantly keeping the couple as relaxed as possible.

Deborah can suggest poems and readings as well as discuss with the bride and groom the many rituals that are becoming popular in weddings today, which can easily be incorporated into their marriage ceremony.

Family members or children may be included in the ceremony, so that they may feel part of the special occasion. Couples may have as much input into creating their wedding ceremonies as they wish.

Deborah can also help you with suggestions for the many other aspects of your wedding including photography, flowers, venues, hair and makeup and cakes. Deborah’s PA system has a connection for an ipod or mp3 player for music on the day.

Renewal of marriage vows is designed for couples who decide they would like to reaffirm or renew their commitment to each other. There is no set time frame for this to take place, but the most popular would be after 10 years. This can be a private occasion or a celebration with family and friends.
