BESPOKE, MAGICAL & GUIDED... WELCOME TO FOX & STAR CEREMONIES
Boho and celestial ceremonies across Dorset and beyond...
Have you always dreamt of having your wedding ceremony on your favourite beach, in the middle of the woods or perhaps in your back garden?
Enter stage right Fox & Star Ceremonies. With a Celebrant you can have your ceremony anywhere you like!
Both Laura Bell and Laura Brown met at Mapperton Estate where they coordinated a busy wedding season with back-to-back weddings. Laura Bell saw the same registry office scripted ceremonies week in, week out and wanted so much more for her couples. She completed her Celebrant training in March 2020 and Laura Brown joined the fun later that year.
We work with a wide range of venues in Dorset and beyond, typically with a boho vibe and style. We can include anything you want in your bespoke ceremony and we'll guide you every step of way with glittering inspiration.
This is your celebration and it's our honour to deliver a magical ceremony for your dream event!
They're our thing. We will bring the magical and theatre to your bespoke ceremony. We can create a symbolic ritual that's a perfect reflection of you both or as a family unit using any materials.
What kind of thing do people choose for their ceremony?
Handtying or Handfasting
Tying of the Knot
Jumping the Broom
SO YOU'RE INTERESTED IN A BESPOKE CEREMONY LACED WITH MAGIC & ADVENTURE?
How does it all work?
STEP 1 - SAY HELLO!
Let's chat all about your exciting ceremony plans! You can choose from Laura or Lou or - have us both for your day! We can either meet in person (for tea and cake of course) or over Zoom, at your venue or we can travel to your home. This gives us both an opportunity to see if we're the Celebrants for you, but if you've made it this far you probably like our style!
STEP 2 - YOU WANT TO BOOK ONE OF US (WAHOO!)
So you would love for one of us (or both) to deliver your ceremony? Amazing! Once you've chosen and we've chatted, you'll receive a copy of the terms. A 50% deposit is required to book your chosen date which is then firmly in the calendar.
STEP 3 - CEREMONY PLANNING CALL
Six months to go you'll receive a questionnaire for you both to fill in which you can let us know all of your exciting ceremony plans so far. On return of this, we can book in a ceremony planning call and go through all of the details which will enable us to start work on your bespoke script.
STEP 4 - FIRST DRAFT OF YOUR LOVE STORY
Six weeks to go you will receive your first draft of your love story. This is your chance to read through and let us know any changes or amends. We can include anything extra at this point that you may have thought of and make sure it's absolutely perfect for your day.
STEP 5 - REHEARSAL
Every package contains a rehearsal of which will be at your wedding venue or ceremony location. We can walk through the logistics and make any changes to music or the script at this point. This will put you both at ease ahead of your big day knowing everything is taken care of and you can relax, and enjoy!

The day has finally arrived! We will be at your venue 30 minutes before the start time with everything set up. We will supply a copy of your vows, any readings, ritual resources (if included), keepsake certificates and a copy of your ceremony script to treasure forever. Let's get you married!
