LYME Regis celebrant Juliette Williams has been nominated for the Rising Star category in The Celebrant Industry Awards 2021.
The awards are being hosted by The Celebrant Directory, an online hub full of inspiration for those in search of celebrant-led ceremonies and celebrants and will recognise those delivering excellence, as nominated by fellow celebrant colleagues, industry suppliers, couples and families.
Juliette, known as ‘Juliette By The Sea Celebrant’, nominated for the Rising Star category, is a wedding and funeral celebrant covering Dorset and Devon, based in Lyme Regis.
She has previously spoken out about ‘keeping love local’, encouraging those planning a wedding to make the most of local businesses and suppliers, especially following the coronavirus pandemic.
Nominations for the awards are set to close this Sunday and voting will then open to the public on Monday, May 17 until Friday, May 21, before being reviewed and judged by an independent panel made up of industry experts.
Founder of The Celebrant Industry Awards 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.
“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.”
The winners will be announced and notified on Monday, May 31.
