Debbie Merritt | Celebrant

Debbie Merritt


I am a Druid Graduate of OBOD, and a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. I am also an Approved Celebrant with the Pagan Federation (Scotland), which means that I can Solemnise marriages on their behalf, basically I can legally marry people! I live on the beautiful and mystical Scottish Isle of Arran. All of my ceremonies are personally written for you. I am an experienced celebrant, and am happy to work with you whatever faith or no faith you may be. My wedding blessings have been described as Celtic Spiritual weddings, make of that what you will, but I am delighted! I can also facilitate other rites of passage such as baby Namings, handfastings, vow renewals and funerals.

My aim is that whatever the occasion, as many of your friends and family can join in as you wish. I create roles so that those who wish to take an active part can do so. I know from feedback from my clients that this is what makes the ceremony so special, and that those who have had a special part to play remember it especially fondly. Children are very welcome, and I can create roles for them too.
I draw upon my own spiritual journey to create the magic and mystery that makes true ceremony so special. I do not believe in ‘going through the motions’ of a ceremony any more than you do, and know that my clients are looking for something deep and meaningful. Please contact me by email to discuss your ceremony.
