"Helen is amazing! She has a beautiful calm energy and we couldn't recommend her enough. She is extremely professional, and made the atmosphere fun and relaxed. She really puts her heart into the day and made everything so special for us."

(C&P August 2022)

France is a truly romantic location to have your wedding.  With fairytale chateaux, shimmering fields of sunflowers and lavender, pretty medieval villages - not to mention delicious food - it is a perfect place to make your dream wedding come true! 

As an independent English and bilingual celebrant based in South West France, I write and deliver  beautiful and personal ceremonies for all occasions.  Every couple is special and every love story unique, which is why I am passionate about creating the perfect ceremony to reflect your love, your joy and your story, on your most special day.  

"We couldn't have wished for a more amazing celebrant than Helen! She helped us put together the most beautiful ceremony which truly reflected us as a couple. Her wonderful calm nature & professionalism really shined through from the moment we were introduced. Helen supported us both to be the best versions of ourselves & made our wedding day so special. We couldn't recommend her enough" (Helen & Callum June 2023)


Whether you would like to organise a funeral in a Crematorium, in a field, have your own 'living funeral', or simply organise a memorial in your home for a dearly departed loved one, I will create a unique and respectful ceremony giving honour and gratitude for their life.  

Helen Butler did an incredible job for the family on the day of Jan’s funeral. As well as being celebrant on the day, she also helped hugely with the whole organisation of our beloved Jan's funeral.  As celebrant, her introduction and welcoming were pitch perfect.  We were also so lucky that Helen and Jan had been such great and close friends. This made the eulogy hard for Helen but she handled it beautifully.  Having to plan things from a distance, things would have been so much harder without her.  We all felt so blessed to have Helen and so appreciative for all that she did for us. It was exceptional.   Lisa Nicholls (Auch, Gers April 2023)
