Debbie Merritt North Devon and Cornwall

Every ceremony I create is unique, just as your loved one is unique. I will meet with you and spend time getting to know your loved one, and the things that made them so specially ‘them’. I will then write a ceremony that honours them and celebrates their life, but also reflects and sensitively acknowledges your sadness at this time. My aim is create a ceremony that is respectful and caring, and uplifting. There are no ‘rules’ in my ceremonies, and I welcome contributions from family and friends, and will incorporate them whenever possible. These days people often develop their own philosophies about religion and spirituality, and I acknowledge this in my ceremonies, whatever faith or no faith someone may be.

I am particularly experienced in Spiritualist and Pagan ceremonies, and will be able to incorporate your personal wishes, beliefs and suggestions into your ceremony.
