Fox & Star Ceremonies Nominated in The Celebrant Industry Awards 2021
Local Dorset Celebrant Duo Laura Bell & Laura (Lou) Brown of Fox & Star Ceremonies have been nominated for the Global Celebrant of the Year award, Rising Star award and Most Unique Ceremony award in the 2021 The Celebrant Industry Awards (TCIA) hosted by The Celebrant Directory; an online hub full of glittering inspiration for those in search of celebrant-led ceremonies and celebrants.
As an industry first, these global awards are set to recognise those delivering excellence as nominated by fellow Celebrant colleagues, industry suppliers, couples and families.
Having completed their training in 2020 and setting up Fox & Star in July 2020, Laura & Lou are over the moon to be official nominees.
Founding Director Laura said: “We are absolutely over the moon to be recognised by our fellow Celebrant colleagues, couples and wedding industry friends to be nominated with the weddings and namings categories. I completed my training at the beginning of the pandemic with the aim of writing, officiating and performing magical bespoke celebrant-led ceremonies complete with beautiful rituals.”
She continued “I asked Lou to join me on this adventure after we worked at Mapperton House & Gardens in 2019 managing back-to-back weddings for a whole season together. We met several celebrants during this time and were really inspired by their ceremonies. It’s very much a community over competition industry."
With nominations set to close on Sunday 9th May, voting then opens to the public on Monday 17th May until Friday 21st May, before being reviewed and judged by an independent panel made up of industry experts.
Founder of TCIA and The Celebrant Directory, Jennifer Claire Constant said: “I am so excited to finally launch these awards to shout loudly about our fantastic Celebrant community and really recognise the talent we have.”
She continued: “The past year has shown how integral Celebrants are within the funeral and weddings industry, working and supporting families through life-changing events. I’m really proud of how our members have come together and have made a difference in times of such hardship in 2020-21.”
