Shortlist ...

Hi, I'm Helen

I am a professional English celebrant based in SW France (Gers). During my 19 years in France, as well as learning French, I also worked for an events chateau, being intimately involved with over 200 weddings. Since becoming a celebrant, my passion is to write and deliver bespoke ceremonies for any occasion – weddings, funerals, baby naming ceremonies and vow renewals. Whether you want something fun and informal, elegant and ritualistic, religious or non-religious, I will create a joyful ceremony that is uniquely yours. It’s important you are completely comfortable with your celebrant so please do not hesitate to contact me for a chat with absolutely no pressure. My ceremonies are in English but I can also offer French bilingual.

What's my ceremony style?

I am a young grandmother who loves to embrace the adventures that life has to offer. I’m not afraid of a challenge – having skydived, owned a motorbike, ridden horses, sung in a rock band, teaching English in a university, as well as being a celebrant – life doesn’t have to be boring! I love people and so if you choose me as your celebrant I will go the extra mile to gently and expertly guide you through the process of your ceremony, whatever the occasion. I am also a French speaker so I can offer a bilingual ceremony if required. My style is modern and eloquent, gentle with humour and always respectful, warm and joyful.

Weddings

Every wedding is different as every couple is unique and special. That is why it is so important to have someone alongside who really understands how to weave together your ceremony, creating a magical moment that is all about you. It is my job to help and guide you through the maze of choices available for your ceremony and perhaps help you to include any rituals or acknowledgements to your own cultural heritage or beliefs. The best ceremonies are the ones where the wedding couple write their own love stories and where family and friends are included. These are so personal and unforgettable.

Included in my price:
My extensive knowledge of wedding protocol, organisation and ceremonies.
Unlimited telephone and video calls
Access to multiple examples of readings, music, vows, blessings and other content
A personally written, bespoke ceremony reflecting your wishes and style – with unlimited alterations
A rehearsal with you the day before the ceremony (Travel charges may apply)
Travel to the ceremony (Travel charges may apply)
Fully equipped with cordless microphones and PA sound system

Delivery of your unique ceremony
A beautifully presented Marriage Ceremony Certificate with quality folder
Professionally printed folder containing your final ceremony script
