About Helen Jefferies

Helen Jefferies headshotHello!

I’m Helen, a Humanist celebrant based in Basingstoke, Hampshire. (I’m the one on the left.)

I love nothing more than working with families to create warm and truly welcoming ceremonies – whether you’re celebrating a new arrival or marking a new chapter in your lives together. And even if you’re still not sure whether a Humanist ceremony is right for you, please get in touch to find out more.

What I do

In short: my job is to tell your story.

Once I’ve got to know your family, and what’s most important to you, I’ll work with you to create and lead a unique ceremony.

Nothing that feels unnatural, cringy, or forced. Nothing that “has to be” included. Just personal, meaningful words and actions to mark the ways that all your lives have changed, and the people you want to be to each other in the future.

There’s no such thing as a “standard” wedding or naming – every part should be meaningful and specific. And I can help you find the words and actions that feel right to you.

Whatever the occasion, it’s only natural to gather the people you love most to declare the kind of parent or partner you want to be (and have a bit of a party).

A Humanist ceremony is the chance to design the perfect gathering for you, with the right balance of solemnity and silliness, humour and heart. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, contact me for a chat or find me on Instagram. I can’t wait to work with your family, and share your story.
