16 Jun Local Marriage Celebrant Celebrates New Career
Helena Sant, of ‘Celebrations by Helena’ said that she wishes she found her passion earlier.
“I have always wanted to be a marriage celebrant, and I wish I knew it was a career path back when I finished high school. I absolutely love the power of human connection and working with my couples to turn their dream weddings into reality is something I don’t take for granted,” said Helena.
After being the MC for several events around Central Queensland for more than a decade, as well as performing in Eisteddfods and speech and drama competitions, has prepared Helena for her current role.
“I have always loved working with people and I have a strong passion to work closely with all of my couples, not just creating an authentic ceremony for them, but sharing my knowledge for the entire celebration.
“I value connection and experience and that it why I go the extra mile for every couple to always bring the good vibes and create bespoke packages. I have attended dress fittings, read over speeches from the bridal party, offered styling advice and assisted with the setup and pack down of the ceremony.”
Helena has had a diverse career: from working in retail management, community development, radio, event management, HR and aviation, to now being a celebrant, which Helena says is one of her greatest achievements.
“I also love volunteering and have done so since a young age, as well as holding management positions and general committee positions around Regional Queensland. I found it so difficult leaving high school not knowing exactly what I wanted to do, and I am at total peace now that I have found the perfect role for me as a celebrant.”
