As a fun, witty celebrant, Helen Twyman-Smith enjoys creating light-hearted, custom weddings for her couples. Helen’s ceremonies are entertaining, and aren’t awkward formalities you’ve got to endure to get to cocktail hour. Yours might include an entertaining story of how you met or personalised vows, but whatever direction you choose, you can bet your ceremony will be filled with plenty of heart.

How to describe celebrant Helen Twyman-Smith… we could tell you she’s a hopeless romantic with a passion for all-things love and family, or perhaps we might mention her quick wit and great sense of humour. But we think the best way to encapsulate celebrant Helen is with a single word: Thoughtfulness. 

This creative, open-minded celebrant is attentive to her couples’ needs, and puts love and consideration into crafting their bespoke ceremony. One thing all her ceremonies include are lots of personal touches and sweet anecdotes - like the story of how you met, for example. This is so your ceremony is fun, engaging, and an enjoyable part of your wedding, not something you need to get through in order to celebrate at your reception. 

Situated in Picton, Helen loves bringing people together, and uses her outgoing personality, bubbliness, and natural confidence to lift the energy at your wedding, ensuring all guests are engaged and - if it’s your preference - shedding a happy tear or two!

“Helen was amazing. She is very professional, funny, thoughtful. My husband Brad and I were  extremely happy with Helen. She provides a very personal service. Helen went up and beyond and I cannot thank her enough for her amazing  services. Thank you Helen.” Sharon

What you can expect when working with Helen Twyman-Smith for your wedding:

 

  • Warm, caring celebrant. Helen is absolutely lovely, and genuinely cares about her couples and their happiness. When working with Helen, you’ll see she’s thoughtful, considerate, and passionate about helping you have the best possible wedding.
  • Organised and capable. Helen has a type A personality, and is consistently organised, punctual, and on top of things - you won’t need to worry about a thing with Helen around. 
  • Bespoke ceremony. Your custom ceremony will be completely unique to the two of you, with lots of personal touches, anecdotes from your journey together, and in-jokes thrown in for good measure.

 

Here’s what else you need to know about Helen Twyman-Smith.

 

  • Ceremony location. Helen works at weddings across the Southern Highlands, Macarthur, Narellan, Wollondilly, and Wollongong.
  • MC services. Hard-pressed to find a confident MC for your reception? You might like to book Helen to look after both your ceremony and reception. She's confident, well-spoken, and is very witty.
  • Other ceremonies. Helen is also available for naming ceremonies and vow renewals.

 

“We were fortunate to have Helen as our celebrant for our wedding day. Helen made the entire process so easy and fun, even when we got stressed by the enormity of planning a COVID-19 wedding in a short space of time, Helen was there, checking in with us to ask what she could take off our shoulders … Helen went above and beyond our expectations, and she did so with warmth, compassion, and a lovely sense of humour! You will be in safe and kind hands choosing Helen to be your celebrant and we could not recommend her highly enough.” Colette

We could not recommend Helen enough! From day one, Helen was so easy going and asked so many questions to ensure our ceremony was perfect and exactly what we wanted! Well, our day was exactly that! Helen made us feel so relaxed and calm, taking away most of our wedding nerves! Our ceremony was very personalised, funny and truly shared our love with everyone! Helen is very professional and we had so many beautiful comments from our guests stating how lovely our ceremony was and that is all thanks to Helen! We cannot thank her enough and wouldn’t have wanted anyone else sharing our journey and bringing us together in marriage.

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Thanks for your lovely words Ashley & Matt! I'm so pleased to hear how happy you both were with everything and that you had good feedback from your guests. You guys were a dream to work with & your bridal party, MC & families could not be more friendly and welcoming. The love that you 2 share and the relationships with family & friends you both have is incredible, it was such an honour to be a part of your amazing journey. Wishing you both a lifetime of continued adventure, great laughs and making memories together. Luv, Helen

Helen was the perfect Celebrant for our wedding. She was exceptionally professional, helpful and personable. Helen went out of her way to ensure our ceremony was reflective of us as a couple. She managed to capture our personalities and love so perfectly. She had our guests laughing and crying effortlessly as she lead the ceremony through our journey. Our ceremony was perfection thanks to Helen who could not be faulted on her work from the time we reached out to her follow up emails after the wedding.

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Thanks Guys! I'm truly humbled by your wonderful feedback and SO pleased that you were happy with your ceremony. Working with couples like you makes this amazing job that much more satisfying. I loved telling your very unique and beautiful story......as well as meeting your awesome bridal party, family & friends - what energy they all had! Thanks for choosing awesome vendors to work with too, you did a great job planning your beautiful day. Wishing you both a lifetime of love and laughter together. X Helen X

What is there not to say about Helen! With postponing, Helen continued to check in to make sure we were still doing ok! Helen made choosing our ceremony script extremely easy with just enough options for it to feel personalised. Helen reached out to us, family & friends to create her creation of our love story! We heard this at our ceremony and it honestly felt like Helen had been apart of our life story she hit the nail on the head! I encourage anyone looking for a celebrant to reach out to Helen as from the moment speaking with her we felt comfortable & at ease about our whole day! So thankful Helen was apart of our day! Emma & Blaike

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Dearest Emma & Blaike - WOW....Shucks & thanks for your amazing feedback guys. :-) I absolutely adored you 2 from day 1 and felt so privileged to work with you on creating your perfect ceremony. Thank YOU for being so darn fabulous, kind, energetic & fun. Your crew & guests were pretty awesome too. Your very happy baby news took your love to a whole new level too - one very lucky bubba right there! Wishing you every happiness together. Thanks for choosing me & trusting me with your ceremony. Helen XOXO

Helen was absolutely PHENOMENAL! We cannot thank her enough or recommend her enough to be the celebrant at any one’s wedding. She was so attentive and accommodating, had an insane attention to detail, was incredibly caring and all around perfect. Her love story she wrote for my husband and I was so touching and brought a tear and warmth to everyone present, as well as many laughs! After the ceremony, so many guests complimented us on how beautiful our ceremony was and how amazing Helen was! We love Helen so much and now consider her one of our friends ❤️ Thank you!!! ❤️❤️

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Dearest Molly & Ro. I'm humbled by your very kind words and the feedback (and love) from your guests. From the moment we met, it was good vibes all the way...easy breezy! It's not hard to see why there was so much love and beautiful humans (and doggos) surrounding you on your wedding day with you two wonderful people at the core of it all. I couldn't be happier that you both chose me as your celebrant and to play a role in your special day, and more importantly, that you were happy with the ceremony that I crafted specifically for you. Congratulations again and I look forward to catching up again soon for a coffee. XO Helen XO

Where to start!! Helen was absolutely incredible! We loved her being our celebrant and our MC for the night of our special day! There was not a thing I would have changed, she was perfect getting to know us and getting our story and putting that into our ceremony! From the moment we met Helen, myself and my now husband left saying we loved her and she was the one for us! She is incredibly warm and so friendly! She took care of everything for us and made our day so special and the day ran so smooth for us! I couldn't recommend Helen more for your special day, you will love her just as we did!!

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Bless you Jodie (and Rob) - thanks for your glowing feedback. It's easy to have things go smoothly when the couple are as easy breezy and just the nicest darn people, as you and Rob are. Thanks for being a wonderful couple to work with and also credit goes to a few amazing people in your squad (and a team of red hot vendors) who also worked to ensure a smooth process. Well done to you both on your choice of style and venue - it was perfect! Luv, Helen

Helen exceeded our expectations for our wedding ceremony. From the first time we spoke to Helen she was understanding and always open to the suggestions that we had. What Helen provided on the day perfectly summed up our relationship and was tailored exactly to what we wanted. Could not recommend Helen enough!!

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Courtney & Dylan, your kind words are very much appreciated and it fills me with joy to have been able to not only play a role in your special day but also to deliver a ceremony that reflects you as the unique and creative couple you are. You were both an absolute delight and easy going pair to work with. Wishing you both many more years of happiness together and growing that gorgeous fur family, maybe!? ;-)

10 Jul 2021

Helen was an absolute delight to work with. Very professional, caring, fun and easy to get along with. Organising everything can be a very stressful, but Helen made it very simple and really went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. Our meetings were always organised and detailed with Helen allowing us time to gather our info without stress. Unfortunately due to COVID, we had to cancel our plans. She was so understanding, Helen gave us a full refund of our money with no issues which is something she didn't have to do. Overall we had a great experience with Helen and would highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to get married. Jade and Dylan

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Thankyou for your very kind words Jade & Dylan. It was such a pleasure to meet you both and your gorgeous little Cleo. Working with you to build your ceremony was like chicken soup for the soul and I'm really sorry that COVID shut all of those plans down at the last minute and the logistics of scheduling and arranging a new date from so far away became too much of a challenge. I wish you all well for the future and your new plans for an elopement in your new home state - I promise to keep you posted if we plan to head that way any time in the near future, as requested ... you just never know. Helen XO

27 Jun 2021

Helen was an absolute dream to work with and to have officiate our special day. So accommodating, calm and professional right from our first contact. Helen captured our love story just perfectly and was so supportive in the creation process. All our guests mentioned how wonderful the ceremony was and how beautifully it was written. We highly recommend Helen to any couple who are looking for an absolutely gorgeous person to officiate their ceremony.

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Beautiful Alice! It was a real pleasure working with you, Ean, Poppy & Daisy and to meet your lovely families. Thanks so much for yours (and your guests) positive feedback - I'm happy that you and Ean are happy with the service and ceremony I provided. I'm grateful, every day, that I get to work with amazing couples such as you and Ean. Wishing you all the best for your honeymoon and life together. XO

7 May 2021

Helen was amazing in every aspect and made our special day even more special than we thought possible. She invested in meeting with us many months before our ceremony so she could get to know us both as people and customise her delivery to suit our unique preferences. Helen was prepared at all times and supplied us with many options including written material, advice and also organised everything from setting up music, microphones and speakers on the day. Helen's delivery was so warm and lovely and made everyone very emotional in the best possible way. She is a lovely lady and we feel that we made the best choice possible and she comes extremely highly recommended from us. You will not be disappointed and if in doubt we would be more than happy to confirm the contents of this review verbally whenever required. Michael and Antonietta xoxo

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Wowsers! I'm humbled by your very kind words Michael & Antonietta, grazie mille! I should be thanking you two for allowing me to play a role in your very special day. What a lovely journey we went on, how well we clicked right from our first zoom session, getting to know each other and creating a unique ceremony honouring who you are as a couple and including your gorgeous 'men in black' style boys who capped off the story perfectly! Wishing you both many more adventures, travels, loads of coffee, cocktails and fine dining. Stay awesome. XO

1 May 2021

Thank you so much Helen for everything you did for us , from the first day we met you at coffee we knew we wanted you to be a part of our special day. Your attention to detail is second to none. Up until right before the ceremony checking I (the bride) was okay to walk down the aisle even if it was in the pouring rain. We also loved the love story you wrote about us, it’s something we will always remember. We definitely would recommend you to our friends and family. Thankyou

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Thank you so much for your very kind words Jamie. You and Liam would have to be 2 of the most beautiful humans I've met and it was an absolute honour and delight to be your celebrant on your special day. Your love story and just the general vibe between you both brought tears to my eyes many times over .....and then the photos, the jaw dropping, romantic, crazy good photos.... in the rain at such an epic venue!! ..... ugghhh, I'm not crying YOU ARE! 💕 Wishing you both a life full of exciting adventures, surrounded by love and being each other's best friends forever! I hope we get to 'do coffee' again soon. Helen. XO

10 Apr 2021

Helen helped to make our day so special! Her communication, attention to detail and genuine love of her job were evident. She was open minded to all our requests and made helpful suggestions along the way for a seamless day. We would highly recommended her services!

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Hi Elle! Thanks so much for your very kind words and I'm so happy to hear that you and Luke enjoyed your special day which I really enjoyed playing a role in. You were both, equally easy to work with and it was a pleasure to be on part of yours and Luke's journey. It was also a pleasure to meet a lot of your beautiful family and friends and a big thanks to Susan for her Acknowledgement to Country, a very important part of the Ceremony. Wishing you both and your family, many wonderful & happy years ahead. 💕

7 Feb 2021

Helen was absolutely vital in the smooth running of our wedding day. She was always available, putting up with my countless messages and emails. She was truly interested in our couple story and put every effort in to making our ceremony unique and special to us, which really came up in our guests feedback of the day. She is easy going enough to curb the bride-to-be stress, but also extremely knowledgeable about the legalities of the ceremony as well as suggestions of minor details that make a huge difference to the impact and running of the day. We cannot thank Helen enough for everything she did to guide us in our marriage journey, despite COVID and all the indecisiveness and uncertainty that comes with that, she stuck by us and felt like a true part of our #bridetribe :D Truly blessed! The highest recommendation from us!

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Wow Kim! There are no words I have that can say how humbled and grateful I am by your very kind words. You and Krispin were such a delight to work with, it was more like helping close family members. It was truly an honour to be your celebrant and be on such a wonderful and sometimes scary ride, (thanks to Covid) but we got there!.....and you guys are amazing! This will be, An 'Everlasting Love'. ❤️

Helen made the entire process so easy and fun, even when we got stressed out by the enormity of planning a COVID-19 wedding in a short space of time, Helen was there, checking in with us to ask what she could take off of our shoulders.

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Wow, thanks for your lovely words Colette & Shane. It was a pleasure and an honour to work with you both and share in the absolute joy of your beautiful wedding day. I'll forever cherish the 'Mum' reference - that was such a compliment! There were some pretty fabulous times in 2020 despite what was going on in the world and your wedding is up there! All the very best to you both Luv Helen . XO

20 Feb 2020

We had Helen conduct a special surprise naming day for our 1 year old son with guests who were already in attendance for a joint 1 & 5 year birthday celebration. There was a significant last minute change to the run of the day due to necessary attendees and Helen professionally took it in her stride to assist with adjustments. She is warm in her approach and was extremely helpful in the arrangements leading up to the event.

Helen Twyman-Smith  

Thanks Sarah and Guy! It was an absolute honour for me to officiate at your gorgeous 'liddle man's' Naming Day. Such a fun time with you all. I'm looking forward to working with you again real soon! ;-) Luv, Helen. XO
