Hemel Hempstead Celebrant crowned industry winner in international awards
'Alison Ann – The Civil Celebrant' was nominated in four categories at the awards that recognise those delivering excellence within the Celebrant industry
A Celebrant from Hemel Hempstead has been crowned the industry winner in the 2021 The Celebrant Industry Awards (TCIA).
Alison Ann, who is a Family Celebrant covering Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Greater London, won two of the awards for which she was nominated for.
She was crowned as 'Best National Celebrant - Weddings' and 'Global Celebrant of the Year 2021.'
The very first Celebrant Industry Awards was held virtually as it live streamed on Facebook with over 56 finalists attending via Zoom to see who would be revealed as industry winners across weddings, funerals, naming and vow renewal professions.
Celebrants from all over the world were nominated and judged by wedding and funeral professionals.
Alison said: “I am absolutely blown away. To be nominated by my clients and peers and acknowledged for my service to the industry is such a wonderful feeling. I am so grateful.”
The event was hosted by founder of The Celebrant Directory - sponsor of the awards - Jennifer Constant.
She said: “I am so immensely proud of all the winners and everyone who was nominated for these awards.
"The goal behind these global awards was to recognise those delivering excellence as nominated by fellow Celebrant colleagues, industry suppliers, couples and families and I feel they have done exactly that.
"There have been many challenging events over the past year and Celebrants have really been instrumental in being the glue which has held ceremonies and celebrations together.
"Huge congratulations to Alison Ann for winning 'Best National Celebrant' and 'Global Celebrant of the Year 2021', you are truly amazing!”
Since achieving a national qualification in Celebrancy, Alison Ann has become the preferred celebrant with several prestigious wedding venues and wedding planners throughout Hertfordshire.
Highly sought after by couples wanting a more personalised ceremony, she excels in her ability to write and conduct ceremonies that are centred around the individual needs and personalities of her clients.
Alison Ann will be acting as officiant for the wedding of “Strictly Come Dancing’s” Craig Revel Horwood and Johnathan Myring in 2023.
Alison would like to thank The Celebrant Directory for sponsoring the awards, and for championing celebrants and their excellence in service to others.
