Celebrant Weddings in France


“Not only is Helen kind, patient, and warm, but also funny, creative, and full of joy – all of which came through during our ceremony”


Celebrating Life

“Helen was sympathetic but not afraid to keep things light and we were able to discuss the service/eulogy by remembering all the good things.”


Hello, I’m Helen, I’m an English-speaking celebrant now living in France. I’m in my second year of weddings in this amazingly beautiful (though sometimes incredibly annoying…) country.

I’ll admit to being “a woman of a certain age”, but I still aspire to be some sort of athlete, good dog owner and get my “children” to speak to me rather than message. Having moved to France in September 2021, I suspect my wine consumption has gone up – but it’s of a better quality dahlink! I’d conducted weddings in Wales for six years before moving here, and long ago realised something I want to share with you;

Just as life is too short for dull wine……..

Life’s too short for dull ceremonies!

Life is great, let’s celebrate it whether you’re at the beginning, the middle or nearer the end of yours!


Whatever brought you here organising a wedding, elopement, renewal of vows or a funeralthis brings you a step nearer to finding your English speaking celebrant in France

Wedding Ceremonies & Renewal of Vows

What does it mean to have a personalised wedding ceremony, or renewal of vows? Well, we can reflect on your romance, your life together so far and so on.

But, let’s go further! I want to dig deep, find out who you are, what makes you tick; more to the point, what makes you tick together!

Funeral Ceremonies

In this most difficult, emotional of times, I shall take the time to listen as you recall your thoughts, feelings and memories of the one you have lost.

I shall visit you at your home, or a place which you choose, and create a ceremony in celebration of the life of the person for whom you mourn.

So you want to go it alone and have an elopement? No problem, though I’d suggest not quite alone would be preferable!
