Wedding Thank You’s
Alistair and Helen
Helen’s personality, attention to detail and understanding of what we wanted was the glue that held our special day together. She managed to balance humour and pathos wonderfully, giving the day a real personal touch while at the same time imbuing it with real meaning. It was a great experience from the first Zoom call through to the “I do’s” and beyond.

We had our wedding near Perpignan in the South of France. We found Helen from the website “get hitched in France”. We had been speaking with Helen for less than 5 minutes over a Zoom call and we already knew we wanted her to be our celebrant. Helen is such a personable, kind, and interesting person. After we had chosen Helen she spent many hours speaking to our closest friends and family so that she could write an amazingly detailed wedding speech about us that matched the day perfectly, and she delivered it impeccably, it was very relaxed (which is how we had asked her to deliver it), humorous and very emotional at the same time, it was a good job we had put tissues for people’s “tears of joy” on the seats as every single person needed them.
Helen’s sensitivity and willingness to make everything in the ceremony perfect made our special day that bit more special.
We couldn’t thank Helen enough for helping to make our day such an incredible moment.
We wouldn’t only recommend that you choose Helen as your celebrant, we would recommend that after reading this you call her straight away and don’t even bother speaking to any others.

Sina’s mother wrote the following;
Helen Williams was the celebrant in my son’s wedding in Aug 2022. I was happy the way she approached and performed the ceremony. She put quite an effort in learning about Iranian wedding ceremony and seamlessly including some of the ritual in this wedding. The wedding ceremony was beautiful and exceptional. Thank you Helen.

We had our wedding in Provence in May 2022. Helen served as our celebrant/officiant and we couldn’t have been happier. Although brief, she was able to spend time with us before our wedding day to get to know us. Using this information, she curated a lovely ceremony. We, and our guests, specifically enjoyed the ring warming ceremony in which each of our guests was able to hold our rings and impart a blessing, prayer, wisdom to help kickstart our marriage with some positive energy! If you are in search of a professional, English speaking, officiant in the South of France, then look no further than Treasured Ceremonies. Cheers!

5 stars is not enough to describe Helen and the service she provides.
Helen was our celebrant for our ceremony in the south of France. I was always very adamant that we wanted a basic and traditional ceremony. Helen obliged based on our brief, but also still did get take the time to get to know us and learnt about our relationship. She produced the most beautiful script, while it still remained traditional, it really did provide the perfect summary of who we are. Helen was the talk of the wedding and to this day, we are still get compliments of her beautiful and clever words. Thank you so much for making our day more perfect then we dreamed!

“We booked Helen a month before our wedding day after a last minute change of plan. And at a time when much of our wedding planning felt like chaos, Helen was a grounding force. Her kindness, compassion and intuitive sense of what it was that we wanted from our ceremony was evident from our first call. And throughout the process of working together I had complete confidence that it would be everything we wanted. While the day itself should have felt stressful (Covid, a torrential downpour) Helen was a calm presence throughout. She is a talented writer and speaker and crafted the intimate, meaningful and personal ceremony we wanted. I could not have felt happier with our choice of celebrant.”
Sarah and Ed
As you can see, Lynda did a fabulous job of this ceremony! I wrote this one but was unavailable to present it after Covid-related date changes. Lynda was a star, turning out on New Years’ Day!
“Thank you both so much for making New Year’s Day such a magical event for us. We’ve had so many wonderful compliments on how individual, funny and ‘us’ our ceremony was, and that’s entirely down to you both”.

Thank you so much again for making our wedding day as special as it was.
Every single person complemented how personal the ceremony was and how it was so different to anything they had ever been to before.
Aimee and Ryan
What can I say! Helen was amazing! At first we were slightly apprehensive about having a celebrant as we hadn’t heard of a celebrant ceremony before but we were not disappointed. Helen made our ceremony so personal to us it was truly special.
We had so many compliments on how beautiful and different our ceremony was. Helen was so friendly, very professional and so easy to converse with. We are so happy we decided to use Helen and when we renew our vows in the future we would love Helen to be our celebrant at that also.
If you want a unique, personal, different ceremony, Helen is your woman!
Jodie and Chris
We had such a wonderful wedding on Saturday, made even more special by Helen’s beautiful ceremony. Her unique ability to make all who attended feel comfortable and included in the celebrations was so appreciated. Helen was so flexible when we had to shift things around with the covid restrictions and even with a last minute reduction on numbers, her beautiful words still sounded so unique to us and kept everyone entertained.
Thank you for all you have done over the past year and a bit to keep our wedding on track and your support and beautiful ceremony…we absolutely loved it.
Sid and Rachel
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Helen to create our ceremony for our wedding in June. We wanted a bespoke ceremony, and that is what we got! We were able to get to know Helen over a prolonged period of time, and she was able to get to know us, and that’s exactly what came across in the ceremony. All of our guests commented on how professional Helen was, but still very personable.
Helen has so many great ideas for making a ceremony a bit different – we would have never have thought to introduce Welsh cakes and mango lassi’s into our wedding ceremony without her!
We cannot recommend Helen as a celebrant enough – Thank you so much Helen, you are fabulous! We hope our paths will cross again in the future

Helen did an amazing job at our wedding in the Gower in May! We had an intimate and relaxed garden event and Helen really helped to personalise the ceremony to our personalities and tastes. Helen was friendly and personable and made a special effort to get to know our family and friends which added to the charm of the day. Lots of our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was and how special and unique it was. I would recommend Helen anytime and we were thoroughly impressed and happy with the service! Thanks again Helen!

When planning our wedding, we’d always wanted to have a friend conduct the ceremony. Having not been married before, we assumed this would be an easy ask for an untrained friend – not so! As we found out, assembling and conducting the most important part of the day is a difficult thing to do. Long story short, we found ourselves two weeks away from our wedding day with no ceremony in place.
A friend suggested that we hire a celebrant, assuring us that we would not lose the personal touch that we were looking for. We set about the search and after a few refusals from celebrants who didn’t feel they could work to our timescales, we found Helen – she was enthusiastic, friendly and most importantly, up to the challenge!
It was as important to her that the ceremony was personal and unique to us, so she spent three hours talking to us on facetime to get to know us better. Helen drew on her expertise to suggest that we add some symbolism into the ceremony, which is something we hadn’t considered ourselves, but she worked with us to find something which reflected us as a couple perfectly.
On the day, Helen was great, she kept us calm and conducted a beautiful engaging ceremony. We can’t Helen enough for coming to our rescue at the last minute – she was able to turn something extremely stressful into something we didn’t have to think twice about by virtue of her hard work. Thank you so much, Helen. We hope our ceremony stays top place for speed!

Helen saved the day recently for myself and my new husband. The hotel where we had booked our wedding no longer had their license and it seemed like everything had gone wrong. Then we spoke to Helen who arranged to perform a ceremony for us and it was brilliant. Helen understood what we wanted from the day and created a personalised experience for us that was better that what was initially planned. A lot of family members at the ceremony commented on how special it was and how much they enjoyed it. Thank you Helen for not only rescuing our day but also creating a magical experience for us.
Vixx and Ben
Helen, what can I say?
You truly made our day the special, unique, and personal.
Firing the registrar and finding you was a miracle, I couldn’t imagine the day being any other way, we both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating such a wonderful and heartfelt ceremony. I can’t think of one thing I’d change, and I am going to get everyone to use celebrants from now on haha.
Sincerely we all thank you and I wish you all the best in all your future endeavours, you truly are an amazing woman and a beautiful soul! ❤️
Saffy and James
YES!! I would recommend. Helen is so charismatic and brings a real uniqueness to the ceremony. We loved our wedding ceremony and so did our guests. It was beautiful and so personal. How lovely that over 130 guests got the chance to interact with us firstly during our hand hasting. Best part about it is we have a lovely keep sake in the form of a willow hoop and ribbon to remind us of that joyous day. The next ceremony I intend to host a naming ceremony. Will DEFINITELY come back to Helen for this 🙂 thank you so much xxx
Joyce and Tom
We are so grateful to you Helen, and your beautiful, moving ceremony. It was by far the best decision we made to choose you to have as our celebrant.
I would recommend you to anyone.
We knew from the first time we spoke you were right for us, the right amount of sentiment and humour. A love story with your thoughtful suggestion of the hand fastening. Everyone was talking about it after, about how unique it was.
Thank you xx
Michelle and Phil
What a lovely, professional and engaging lady! We were thrilled with Helen’s services and would highly recommend her for your special day! Thank you so much
Claire and Nick
Last weekend Helen performed our wedding service at Nantyronen Station on the Vale of Rheidol Railway. We always knew we wanted the traditional structure of a wedding but with our own unique spin on it. After just a Skype call and one meet up, Helen created a perfect service. It was witty, fun, romantic and personal. Helen is so kind and thoughtful in her approach and is just brimming with love and joy, you can’t help but smile and laugh in her presence. Thank you so much Helen for listening to us and making our ceremony so very special, we (and our guests) loved it!
Livia and Joshua
We chose to have a wedding unique to us and that’s exactly what Helen delivered.
Helen was recommended to us by someone during our wedding planning at Oldwalls so I thought I’d give her a call to get more info. From the moment Helen answered the phone I felt like we clicked and knew immediately that we had to have her. She was so kind and I felt as if I already knew her, so needless to say the planning of our ceremony felt so effortless. Helen knew immediately what we wantedand was always available to chat or a coffee to and bat around ideas and help with any worries around the day. She made us feel so at ease with everything and weddings can be extremely daunting!
We are so happy we met Helen as we were able to have the personal ceremony we had dreamt of. All of our family members and friends have commented on how beautifully Helen delivered our ceremony and how it’s the most personal wedding they have ever been to.
Do not look any further if you are looking for something personal and unique to you, give Helen a call or message, you will not regret it! If anything you’ll leave with a new and wonderful friend ❤️
Sam and Steve
Helen from day one was incredible, she totally got us a couple and our vision for the day. She made us a truly unique ceremony that had our guests crying with laughter and happiness. Nothing was too much trouble and the compliments we had afterwards on how people respected us for doing it ‘our way’. I would highly recommend using Helen if you want to have control of your day and truly have the ceremony of your dreams. My dad had already said ‘when it’s my time to go, I want Helen back’ ?
Thank you Helen for making our so special. ?
Phil and Haf
Helen exceeded our expectations of a celebrant for our wedding! From the moment we contacted her she took the time to get to know us as a couple and wrote us the most perfect ceremony. She is very personal, professional but most of all fun! she even got us making cocktails in the ceremony! everyone loved it and said it was the best wedding they had been to! That was down to Helen! Thank you! Phil and Haf x
Mark and Kim
Helen was amazing and helped us to tailor our wedding ceremony on the beach at Penbryn which helped to make it personal and perfect for us. Thank you. Xx
Louise and Kevin
Helen spent time preparing our ceremony and checked with us every step of the way. We couldn’t have asked for a better, nicer, kinder celebrant to share our special memories with.

There have been quite a few photos posted on Facebook, a few of which I’ve tagged you in … just so you can see them! Some of them are really amazing and it’s great to have such a wonderful record of the occasion. (A friend of ours has also sent us a memory stick with over four hundred more photos of the day!)
So, all in all, a huge success and, once again, many thanks!
