Congratulations on your upcoming Wedding. I would love to help bring to life your ideal ceremony – tailored to reflect you as a couple – while making the whole process easy for you.
I am an experienced, confident marriage celebrant specialising in hand-crafted ceremonies, and I am passionate about what I do.
You’ll find me to be down-to-earth, friendly, well-presented and articulate with a warm sense of humour, a high degree of professionalism and fastidious attention to detail, so you can be confident nothing will be left to chance.
As your Celebrant, I will also be here for you to talk to, ready to answer any questions you may have as you prepare for your special day.
Please feel free to visit my webpage or contact me for more information, and to arrange an obligation-free meeting.
Right from the outset, Lorraine was an absolute pleasure to work with. We are an Australian couple living in Canada and we returned home for our wedding, so had some additional challenges to navigate in terms of planning a wedding from afar and coordinating vendors largely via correspondence alone. Lorraine’s timely and professional response to our initial inquiry really impressed us as she was very articulate and came across as really knowing what she was doing!
We met with Lorraine in person just once and decided on the spot that she was the celebrant for us! She worked hard behind the scenes, managing all of the paperwork and word-smithing of the ceremony, and on the day delivered such a warm and beautiful service that was very well received by our us, our family and our friends. She felt like a friend or a relative talking about ‘our story’ and she really made it all about us! The ceremony was absolutely a highlight for us and really set the tone for a beautiful day.
We loved working with Lorraine and will be recommending her to all of our friends looking for a celebrant! Thank you for everything Lorraine!Tori and Ben 24/06/2017 Riverlife, Kangaroo Point
Without really knowing what we were looking for in a celebrant, we frantically searched google looking through reviews and profiles of celebrants on Wedding websites, until I remembered that our venue supplier had a list of recommendations on an email I had received. From our first visit with Lorraine we were sold. We met with another celebrant just as a comparison and Lorraine was leaps and bounds in front with a fantastic first impression.
Lorraine was so well organised and had everything ready to go from the very first meeting. She was so easy to deal with and has a very gentle and caring personality. In the lead up to the day she put together the most beautiful ceremony after getting to know us, and added in bits here and there whenever we asked.
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Wedding day, everything went so smoothly with no hiccups at all! Would definitely recommend Lorraine as a marriage celebrant!!Kim and Ben 28/05/2017 Topiaries, Samford
Right from the start, Lorraine’s friendly, approachable and professional nature put us at ease and filled us with confidence that we had made the right decision choosing her for the very important role of celebrant at our wedding. Lorraine had perfect knowledge of all the legal requirements, which made it easy for us to concentrate on making the ceremony special and personal. Her experience really guided us in making choices we didn’t even know were options, so our ceremony felt truly one of a kind and tailored for us.
On the day, Lorraine was incredible at organising everyone, and spoke perfectly! We booked a celebrant and ended up with a lovely new friend. We could not have been happier!Jasper and Rochelle 15/10/2016 State Library of Queensland
From day one Lorraine made us feel very looked after. No question was ever too silly, and her very organised but highly personal style meant we didn’t have to lift a finger – and we still got the ceremony of our dreams. Lorraine had a way of getting across the authentic feelings and importance of the day, whilst honouring our personalities and stories.
Numerous guests have commented on how authentic our ceremony was, and how wonderful our celebrant was. Lorraine’s professional and well-spoken manner (along with her flair for making you feel completely at ease) was welcomed by all at our wedding. As a result, there wasn’t a face in the room that didn’t have a big smile on it (nor an eye that was dry!)Kathleen and Fergus 27/06/2015 Upper Brookfield CommunityHall
Thank you so much, Lorraine, for making it such an easy decision to choose a marriage celebrant; we knew within the first few minutes of meeting you that you were everything we were looking for. You were so friendly, warm, professional, organized and an all-round beautiful person who enhanced our day. Your guidance and help was invaluable and made the whole process so easy! The way you constructed our ceremony, our love story was absolutely perfect. We would have no hesitation in recommending you, and in fact already have. Thank you so much again, you did an absolutely amazing job – we couldn’t be happier!Tara and James 07/06/2015 The Landing at Dockside
Lorraine, you went so far above and beyond our expectations. You didn’t just officiate, you tailored the whole ceremony around us.
Right from our first meeting, we knew we had found the right person for our wedding. We were so convinced, that we didn’t meet with anyone else! You guided us through the whole process, since we clearly had no idea when things should be done in the grand scheme of things.
Even though we only met with you a few times, we felt as if you got to understand us incredibly well, which shone through at the wedding. We were blown away by the level of thought that went into our ceremony, and we had so many people come up to us to tell us that the ceremony was amazing, and “very us”. You managed to capture our relationship and our personalities so amazingly well!
Thank you a thousand times over for making the day as special as it was. We would without hesitation recommend you to anyone who asks.David and Tiffany 23/05/2015 Brisbane Grammar School
We feel so lucky that we found Lorraine. She’s everything we could have hoped for and she made a big difference in making our ceremony special, personal and meaningful. She’s superbly organised and professional, is well-presented and writes and speaks beautifully. She brought care, warmth and kindness before, during and after our big day.
Thanks Lorraine! You are awesome at your job!!! Our ceremony was just exactly how we wanted it to be, and we feel you’ve gone above and beyond to help us through the process, and to make our wedding go so smoothly.Patrick and Kate 02/05/2015 Toowong Rowing Club
We cannot imagine a more dedicated, kind and lovely person for a celebrant than Lorraine. Not only did she craft a wonderfully unique ceremony for us (having paid close attention to our requests, as well as injecting the wisdom of her clearly broad experience), but having recently moved interstate, she still travelled back for our wedding! She went above and beyond and we are so happy we chose Lorraine to marry us! – Chris.
Clear, professional, kind, warm and intelligent. We loved Lorraine’s attention to detail and dedication to ensuring we had a beautiful, personalised and meaningful ceremony. A natural public speaker, Lorraine’s phrasing and emphasis at certain moments really set the tone of the ceremony. Lorraine understood and negotiated a balance of what we were feeling on the day- serious, romantic and fun. We could not have been happier. Lorraine impressed us as a celebrant and as a lovely person. – Helga.Helga and Chris 13/09/2014 Q Station, Manly, NSW
Words are not enough to describe how incredible Lorraine is as a Celebrant and an all over awesome person! … She is the BEST at what she does! She doesn’t miss a beat, no stone is left unturned, nothing is left to chance. Lorraine is genuine and passionate, organised and professional. She is a very gifted writer and has a knack for asking the right questions in order to get thoughts and feelings from you to put together a ceremony you could only dream of.
Post-wedding, Lorraine sent us through a prompt follow up email which included help with name changes and other bits we hadn’t thought of that needed doing. All paperwork and legalities throughout the entire process were completely taken care of by Lorraine, including a lot of things that she was not obliged to do. We know of several of our guests who have already contacted Lorraine for her services following our wedding only 2 months ago, and we will always continue to recommend her to all.
Keep doing what you do Lorraine, you are amazing! xoxoKady and Ryan 22/03/2014 Berrima, NSW
Lorraine, we really wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the most perfect wedding ceremony we could ask for. It was so “us”; your style was the perfect balance of traditional and elegant as well as warm and personal. Everyone told us how much they really liked you as our celebrant, and I believe an aunty of mine wants you to do her son’s wedding! So we cannot thank you nor recommend you enough. And thank you so much for the copy of the ceremony and for the really helpful information regarding name changes. We will definitely send you some photos from Karl and Bec when we receive them! We wish you all the best and hope to you see you again at many of our friends and families’ weddings, which I am sure we will! Kindest regards.Lisa and Ben 28/02/2014 Sydney Opera House
