About Debra Jessett

humanist-celebrant-inn-on-the-lake-ullswaterMy name is Debra Jessett and I became a humanist celebrant 11 years ago.  I create personal non-religious ceremonies to recognise and celebrate the key milestones in people’s lives and provide Humanist Naming, Wedding, Vow Renewal and Funeral Ceremonies.

Since starting, I have conducted ceremonies in many different settings.  What I enjoy most about what I do is meeting people and finding out what is important to them in their lives.  I have discovered a love of writing and telling people’s stories, whether talking about how a couple first met, what a baby has brought into a family’s life or remembering happy times spent with a loved one.

From the feedback I have received, this is what people have found meaningful and has made their ceremony so special.

Each ceremony that I write is unique and is created around the people involved.  My main priority is to get to know you so that I can help you design a ceremony that celebrates your occasion in the way that you wish.

As well as being a trained and accredited celebrant with the Humanists UK, I hold a Summer Mountain Leadership Award and have experience of working in the outdoors. I have conducted ceremonies in a wide variety of indoor and outdoor settings which have included many local hotels as well as family homes and gardens.  More unusual settings include a jetty on Coniston Water, the shores of Ullswater and the top of Silver Howe and Latrigg!

The main service that I provide includes an initial meeting, writing and designing the ceremony and then finally delivering the ceremony on the day.  A rehearsal is included for Wedding Ceremonies.  I also offer a script-only service if people would prefer a family member or friend to deliver their ceremony but would like help with the content.

For further information on all the ceremonies I conduct, including testimonials and readings, please look at my personal website at Inspirational Ceremonies

I look forward to hearing from you!
