About

The Elegant Celebrant – at YOUR service.

Google the word ” elegant” and you will find that its definitions, as an adjective, include; graceful and stylish in appearance or manner, tasteful, discerning, dignified, classic, beautiful, distinguished, aesthetic, lovely, quality and splendid.

Those words precisely express my desire, commitment and confidence in creating a ceremony for you which is truly ” elegant” according to your unique and individual personalities and preferences.

My name is Helen Lesak and I am passionate about communicating your story at your ceremony to your gathering.

My experience comes from the culmination of my life as a wife, mother, churchgoer and a teacher of music and special needs – specialising in deaf education – supporting families from a variety of creeds and cultures.

Joyful presentations, beautiful music and meaningful words are synonymous with ” The Elegant Celebrant ” who would literally love to be ” at YOUR service ”

You may choose to have a themed ceremony with a symbolic element of hand fasting, jumping the broom or a wishing tree to reflect your hopes, dreams and values.

As family changes, services can reflect the arrival and welcoming of new members, marking these significant occasions according to your preferences – the choice is YOURS.

I will collect your history and, based on the essence of you, will craft your ceremony which will be joyous and unique, as befits your occasion.

Elegance is good taste plus a dash of daring
– Carmel Snow
