Award Nominated Luxury Celebrant Ceremonies in Essex and Suffolk

Helen Hobbs

Welcome, friend

I’m Helen Hobbs, also known as The Authentic Celebrant. I collaborate with people just like you, to co-create an authentic, luxury ceremony experience in Essex, Suffolk and beyond.

Whilst I’m based in Colchester, Essex, I travel to Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridge and beyond for my client’s ceremonies.

Soulful wedding celebrations, heartfelt vow renewals, beautiful naming ceremonies and more, I specialise in ensuring that you have the best ceremony for you.

Personal & Beautiful Ceremonies

Life is too short to follow (all) the rules! Let’s create your very own traditions with a luxury celebrant-led ceremony experience (and keep some of the old traditions too!). Whether you’re looking for a spiritual pagan-style ceremony, a non-traditional ceremony, or something entirely more traditional, I listen to your dreams and wishes to co-create a beautiful and meaningful ceremony experience that everyone will remember. I’ll be with you every step of the way from initial ideas and concepts, through planning, all the way to delivering the ceremony itself with love, trust and authenticity. One size definitely does not fit all – so no matter the occasion, we can co-create a ceremony experience that’s personal and beautiful. Through rituals and words we’ll tell your story and celebrate the connections that are important to you.
