We can’t express enough how grateful we are for the services and help Lorraine provided us as a celebrant. Throughout the process she went above and beyond in providing advice and assistance, and in making sure that our ceremony was really meaningful to us personally, and suited to our values and what we were looking for in a ceremony.
Given all the curveballs thrown at us and challenges faced trying to organise a marriage between two different nationalities, Lorraine really went above and beyond to make sure that all the legal requirements were met and that our ceremony was intimate, comfortable, culturally appropriate and met both of our expectations.
We received many compliments from the guests about how beautiful and touching the ceremony was, and Lorraine really went out of her way to get to know us, get all of the details spot on, and bring a heartfelt and personal touch to the ceremony.
We are really thankful that we found Lorraine and were able to have her as part of our special day. It really did just feel like having another friend present at the wedding and we will definitely recommend her to all of our friends.
Thank you again Lorraine from the bottom of our hearts and we wish you all the best for the future.
Bryanna and Adi
Lorraine has true talent. The celebrant you choose can have such a huge impact on how your special day feels. We cannot praise and recommend her highly enough!
From the first coffee meet we had with Lorraine, we knew we had found what we were looking for. Very warm, friendly and professional, we knew we were in good hands.
Lorraine took the time to get to know us and our story, ensuring the ceremony on the day represented us and told our love story perfectly. All the little details are taken care of, so you can both enjoy your day.
Lorraine arrived early to get my flower girls in order, made sure the groomsmen were buttonholed and prepped, and spoke with ease. There was not a dry eye by the end of the ceremony; it was truly magical. Our guests commented on how unique and lovely it was and wanted to know, ‘who was your celebrant??’
Thank you, Lorraine!
Angela and Tim
Lorraine was such a well prepared and organised professional. She was collegial and thoughtful in guiding us with preparations, and paid particular consideration to ensure our personalities showed through in the proceedings. We are so grateful for having Lorraine on our special day, she really made it stress free for us.
Colin and Kai Ying
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
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
Our wedding was perfect in every way, and you played a integral part in that. Your professionalism, warmth and manner were noted not just by Brian and myself, but by many of our guests. Thank you Lorraine; you are still very warm in our hearts for helping us celebrate our beautiful love.
Jeanette and Brian
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
If you are looking for the perfect celebrant for your wedding day, look no further! Lorraine was by far the best celebrant we could have ever asked for. Her attention to detail, organisation, calm and friendly profession manner exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We had so many comments on how lovely our ceremony was, all thanks to Lorraine.
Her pricing is extremely reasonable, and she really does go above and beyond to make sure your ceremony is personalised and you are happy with it in every way. I would not hesitate in the slightest in recommending Lorraine to any of our family and friends.
Thank you again, Lorraine, for marrying us and helping make our day absolutely perfect.
Brooke and Jason
Lorraine was extremely friendly and professional, and we knew from our first meeting with her that she was the perfect celebrant for us! She made sure the planning was stress-free, and that we felt comfortable with all aspects of our ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant, and we’re so glad we chose you, Lorraine! Thank you so much for everything!! 🙂
Amanda and Tim
We found Lorraine through EasyWeddings and honestly couldn’t have been happier with her. Lorraine’s demeanour and professionalism were of high standards throughout the whole process. She made us feel comfortable from the start, listened to our wishes, and promptly got things on the way, adjusting our ceremony text till we were perfectly happy with it. Her organisational skills kept us on track and on time, and I was very grateful for this, as my own skills took a toll in the weeks leading up to the wedding!
On the day, everything went as discussed and our guests commended the beautiful ceremony we had. Afterwards, she also helped with dealing with the BDM office to have our certificate re-issued (after a typo on their end). We would highly recommend Lorraine as a celebrant.
JB and RH
Thank you for everything, Lorraine. We had a perfect day. Thank you for your beautiful words.
Love and blessings, Jo and Peter
Lorraine was extremely professional and helpful throughout the whole process of planning our wedding. She was such a beautiful calming presence on our wedding day and helped to ensure everything ran smoothly.
She gave us lots of wonderful material to work with as well as flexibility to make the ceremony ‘our own’. It was such a perfect day that we will remember forever, and Lorraine truly helped to make it special.
Paige & Ben
We would love to thank you, Lorraine, for helping make our day so special, not only for us but for all our guests. Planning our wedding from a distance, you helped make us feel so relaxed and guided us through the whole process from planning to the “I do”.
Ken & Claire
Lorraine, where to start??? Your professionalism, friendliness, support and advice were simply second to none. You are a lovely person, warm, heartfelt, and just so easy to get along with. Your advice about the day/timing was fantastic, and you made the entire process easy and hassle free. Getting so involved with the ‘surprise’ ceremony was just the best thing for us; we completely had our family and friends fooled, and it was all down to how well the ceremony was planned!! THANK YOU!!! We are forever indebted to you, and will always remember our very special, intimate day beneath the tree in the botanical gardens. Thank you xxx
Stacey and Andy
From the first meeting, Lorraine made us feel very at ease. She listened and worked tirelessly to plan a ceremony that was in keeping with our wishes.
On the wedding day, Lorraine was prompt and helped us to plan and deal with the few pre-wedding issues that inevitably arise (including some rain beforehand!)
I would have no hesitations in recommending Lorraine’s services to any couple looking for a personable and impeccably organised celebrant for their wedding day.
Lorraine, we wanted to thank you again so much for all of your support. We had many compliments on choosing you, and for the wonderful job you did. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts!
Matt and Beth
When we were initially researching for a celebrant, one of the big factors for us to consider was cost. I can absolutely say that you were definitely worth it! From the very start, you were extremely helpful and organised. We knew we were in capable hands and that it was one less thing off our list that we had to worry about.
You really made the day run smoother with all your experience. All your helpful tips (such as where to stand, where to face etc) were not things I had considered and I felt extremely lucky that you were able to share that with us before the day. All your suggested material for vows and readings was also very helpful.
I remember attending two separate weddings which you had officiated before we were engaged. Your lovely manner then made me remember you. You had made those ceremonies so personal and enjoyable.
You definitely made our wedding ceremony very special for us too. In particular, my father-in-law was also very impressed (and he has been to many weddings)!
You were absolutely an amazing celebrant for our special day. We both definitely do not regret choosing you. Thank you again!
JL and DT
Lorraine was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. So professional and knowledgeable, she put us both at ease. She provided so many ceremony options we were able to find vows and readings that were perfectly ‘us’. We had so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was.
RG and RB
Lorraine is professional, warm and fun to spend time with, and importantly, executed our wedding ceremony exactly as promised! We had initially booked a registry office wedding, but baulked at their impersonal, last-minute approach to the ceremony. Instinct guided me to select Lorraine out of the scores of celebrants listed on the web, and that decision was one of the best, as we enjoyed a wedding ceremony that was intimate, meaningful and unique to us.
Thank you Lorraine, for your calm professionalism, your great sense of humour, and your ability to make us both feel at ease in the lead up to our wedding.
AW and MS
Lorraine, we think you did a fantastic job with the planning, organising and delivery of our ceremony. Your attention to detail from the start of the process was exceptional and you seemed to quickly understand who we were, and the type of ceremony we were after. We were very happy with the way you were able to elegantly convert our thoughts into a ceremony that very accurately represented our personalities. We especially appreciated the way you cleverly worded the ceremony around the theme of our life experiences, similarities and differences. Despite being in different states, your friendly nature and amazing organisational skills made the lead up and the day run seamlessly. We feel very lucky that you were a part of our wedding day.
KP and AS
Lorraine was amazing and exceeded our expectations of a celebrant in every way. She was polished, easy going, accommodating, friendly and it was obvious that she knows what she’s doing! We didn’t really know what to expect from a celebrant, but Lorraine led the way and set up our meetings, provided us with great material, advice, and helpful hints for the ceremony which made the whole process a breeze. The ceremony and the lead up to it was just taken care of by Lorraine. We couldn’t have been happier with the service that Lorraine provided – thank you so much Lorraine!!
Allison and Greg
Thank you, Lorraine, for everything you did on the day. The ceremony was perfect and family have also commented to us on how beautiful the ceremony was. Thank you for all of your help with the wording for the ceremony – we would have been lost without your patience and your attention to detail, which made the day so special.
Thank you so much for sharing our day with us.
LE and JP
Lorraine was extremely professional and a complete pleasure to work with. From our initial meeting, we felt that Lorraine met our every expectation, and she maintained her high standards throughout the whole process. It was evident that Lorraine is very organised. She was quick to reply to any queries we had, accommodated our suggestions, and provided helpful hints and information along the way to ensure we knew exactly what was happening.
To make matters slightly more complex, we had a bi-lingual ceremony. It was important to us that both sides of the family were able to understand the vows and promises we made to each other on the day. Lorraine provided us with a plethora of suggestions for Vows and Ceremony rituals which we felt represented us as a couple. In addition, she also provided us with suggestions for how we could keep the emotion and meaning behind the ceremony, without dragging out for too long as can sometimes be the case with bi-lingual ceremonies. We are happy to report that she helped us achieve the perfect balance, and ultimately delivered what we felt was a unique ceremony designed just for us. In addition, she made us feel completely at ease – as though we were her only clients! Lorraine’s professionalism was not only evident to us, but to our guests as well, who frequently commented on the fantastic job Lorraine did.
Keep up the good work Lorraine. A big thank you for making our special day less stressful. We will be in touch for our first child’s naming day 🙂
AS and FB
Lorraine is very professional, friendly, reliable and flexible. She was able to meet all of our needs through only one face-to-face meeting as we live 4 hours away from her. Lorraine worked around our busy lifestyle to schedule Skype meetings and phone calls.
Lorraine made our wedding day the most special and heartfelt day of our lives. She helped us incorporate family members and readings we hadn’t considered, which added to the ‘specialness’ of the day. She is very organised, and has a lovely personality. We would highly recommend her to anyone!
Our wedding was perfect thanks to all of your hard work, Lorraine. There isn’t one thing that we would change!
Nick and Anita
Lorraine, thank you so much for performing our ceremony. We had so much feedback saying it was one of the best ceremonies that people have been too!! It was exactly how we wanted it to be, and we felt so blessed with the weather.
LS and SP
Lorraine was able to step in and be our Celebrant at very short notice. Lorraine was compassionate to our circumstances, professional and patient. We appreciated her expert guidance in navigating the steps required to seek approval to marry, and her assistance in preparing our ceremony, which reflected us as a couple. There aren’t words for how thankful we are for Lorraine’s assistance! Thank you Lorraine!
Meagan and Stephen
Hi Lorraine, thank you for everything you did to make our wedding so beautiful. Your commitment, attention to detail and empathy made our day perfect. We felt like we were getting married by a family friend. Elizabeth, Dad’s partner, said you were born to do that job! We couldn’t have been happier.
So happy we found you!
Best regards, Jan and Paul
We found Lorraine to be a most professional and compassionate celebrant. Her legal and other relevant ceremonial knowledge put our minds at ease. Her ongoing preparation and contact with us prior to the wedding were thorough and easy to digest.
Lorraine is understanding, and has a sense of humour which endeared her to us. We will definitely recommend Lorraine to our friends preparing for marriage, and will utilise her services again for a renewal of vows.
Catherine and Neil
Both Michael and I felt completely comfortable working with Lorraine; right from the initial meeting we knew Lorraine would be ideal. Lorraine listened, responded and was extremely considerate of all our needs. Lorraine’s attention to detail and clear planning strategies were exemplary and the ceremony ran so smoothly, it was seamless.
Not only was Lorraine professional and highly courteous, she was also very considerate of our guests and family. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire process, and respected Lorraine’s integrity, professionalism and calm confidence. A genuine heartfelt thank you.
CW and MG
Hi Lorraine, thank you so much for your part in our wedding. We had such a fantastic day and the ceremony went perfectly thanks to you.
Thank you again for your wonderful help and support for our wedding.
JR and LM
Lorraine was fantastic in turning the preparation process into an experience. We both thoroughly enjoyed meeting with her upfront and planning the day and the wording of the vows.
The day was perfect and we felt very special, largely through Lorraine’s delivery of our vows. She is born to perform ceremonies.
Simon and Mandy
Hi Lorraine, thank you so much for being such an excellent celebrant; we are so happy we were able to have you on our special day!
Kind regards, LF and TK
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
Thank you so much 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
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
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
Thanks Lorraine. We were very pleased with everything and I am very happy our friends and family expressed their feelings about the ceremony to you, as they did this to us as well. Everything came together perfectly and you played a very big part in its success! We are so pleased we chose you as our celebrant.”
KM and BS
Thank you Lorraine. Very professional! Loved our personalized ceremony. Exceptional service.”
MW and NS
Lorraine is an incredible marriage celebrant. We found her to be professional, organised, and she made the whole process very easy for us. Lorraine personalised our ceremony with a light-hearted nature, and it set the tone for the day. The ceremony truly represented us as a couple and we couldn’t have been happier.”
Eileen & Peter
Lorraine is an amazing celebrant. She made us feel comfortable the moment we met her and is always well organised. We love the way Lorraine emphasises that it is ‘our ceremony’ and she really likes to get to know you as a couple so she can make it more personal. Lorraine’s service is so exceptional to the point that even moving from Sydney to Queensland before our wedding, she was still happy to catch a plane to be there for our special day. Many of our guests even commented on how wonderful she was! Lorraine is a beautiful person and my husband and I would gladly recommend her to anyone ! We wish you all the best in Queensland, Lorraine, and would be happy to review you anywhere and everywhere to help you on your way ! Thank you so much ♥ x”
Melanie and Corey
We are so happy to have had Lorraine as our wedding celebrant. From the moment we first met Lorraine we knew that she was the celebrant for us. Extremely professional and helpful and our ceremony was absolutely wonderful – it reflected us, our relationship and our marriage perfectly! Lorraine made sure everything in the lead up to our wedding and on the day ran smoothly, from calming nerves to making sure the flower girls knew exactly what to do! All our friends have commented on how impressed they were by Lorraine and we couldn’t agree more. Thank you Lorraine for all you did – we can’t recommend you highly enough!”
Sarah and Mark
Lorraine is professional and engaging with great attention to detail. She will go out of her way to ensure your day runs smoothly; she flew interstate in order to conduct our ceremony after relocating! Highly recommended.”
Kristy and Chris
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
Hi Lorraine, thank you so much. You are amazing at what you do and we are so happy you were able to marry us. The compliments flowed long after the ceremony and continue to keep coming!
Lorraine helped us create a personalised and inclusive ceremony. Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how smoothly everything ran. Lorraine took all the worry and stress out of planning the ceremony – we highly recommend Lorraine!”
Eilish and Will
Our wedding would not have been the same without Lorraine as our celebrant. Lorraine was meticulous, with superb attention to detail, had regular meetings both on Skype and in person irrespective of the fact that we were in different states and Lorraine was in the midst of relocating her family.”
Nicole and Iyer
Many thanks to Lorraine for her continuous support and advice throughout the planning stage of our wedding, and right out to the actual wedding ceremony!”
Toni and Michael
Lorraine was fabulous – professional, engaging, and extremely helpful throughout the whole process.
All our guests told us how wonderful you were, so well done; you did a great job on the day.”
Imogen and Jack
Where do I start?? Lorraine you are amazing!!! You went above and beyond for us. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. Even when our music stick didn’t work you were straight onto it, fixing it before the ceremony so nobody would have known anything was wrong. You welcomed us into your home and we got to know eachother on a completely different level which was reflected in our ceremony. I had many compliments about how great you and the ceremony were. A lot of people didn’t know our back story so including that into our ceremony made people understand how special our love for one another is. I was beyond nervous when walking down the aisle but as soon as you started our ceremony I felt so relaxed because I knew it was going to be perfect. You are incredible at your job and you will definitely hear from us when we decide to renew our vows. Thank you for making our day so special.”
Julie & Andrew
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 2months ago, and we will always continue to recommend her to all.
Keep doing what you do Lorraine, you are amazing! xoxo”
Kady & Ryan
Thank you so much Lorraine for your amazing work leading up to and on our wedding day. We were immediately put at ease when we first met you, and knew you were the right celebrant for our wedding. Your professionalism was flawless, and the way you captured “us” in the first draft of our ceremony blew us away. You made everything easy, well beyond our expectations (including your spot on recommendations for music and photography). We’re so thrilled that you were included as part of our special day and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out! We’d highly recommend you to anyone and everyone.”
LB and MZ
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
Lorraine was, simply put, the perfect fit for us on our most magnificent day, and deserves much of the credit for just how enjoyable, memorable and spectacular a day we had. True to our first impression of Lorraine, we found throughout our meetings, email correspondence, rehearsal and ceremony that she was incredibly kind, courteous, attentive, very well spoken and immaculately presented; there were no exceptions. We had hoped for exactly these qualities in our celebrant, in someone who was also readily approachable and armed with a good sense of humour.
We particularly appreciated the encouragement and guidance Lorraine gave us when we decided that we wanted to ‘perform’ during our ceremony, with the bride singing to her groom and the groom composing and reciting a poem for his bride. She provided us with really helpful advice on where to place these in the order of ceremony, in addition to the wealth of wording and reading options she gave us for the remainder of the ceremony.
To cap off her extremely thorough service, Lorraine then provided us, post-ceremony, with great information about how to execute the bride’s name change. We couldn’t recommend Lorraine more highly to anyone seeking a true professional for any of their special events and milestones.”
Hayley and Peter
When my daughter brought up the idea of my husband and I to marry in Australia, while visiting our other three children, I thought to myself that’s impossible. Little did I know plans were already under way. Hannah had begun liaising with Lorraine who helped us put together our little wedding so easily and make our day what it was. The ceremony itself was everything I anticipated and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.”
DM and RS
Lorraine is not only a wonderful celebrant but a wonderful person. We had many people comment on her professionalism and how well written the ceremony was. I couldn’t recommend her more highly to anyone and hope to use her services in the future, like a baby naming ceremony 🙂
Thank you Lorraine for all your help and guidance, our perfect day was made more perfect because of you.”
Amy and Andrew
14 December 2013
Lorraine was amazing! We clicked with her straight away and did not need to meet any other celebrants! She was professional, organised and had lots of helpful tips. She stayed in touch in the months leading up to the ceremony and was always offering advice. With Lorraine’s guidance we created a simple but beautiful personalised ceremony. She is very good at what she does and I would not hesitate to recommend her to other couples.
Lorraine exceeded our expectations, guiding us every step of the way. She took the time to get to know us, and to get a feel for the type of ceremony we wanted. She was excellent to deal with over email (which is very rare) and always willing to answer our questions. Lorraine provided us with constructive feedback too when compiling the ceremony, which we very much appreciated! We were confident she would conduct a beautiful and smooth ceremony, but she also helped to organise the guests on the day, assisted with the set up, and helped our photographer coordinate a group photo. Our ceremony went so smoothly! We were raving about Lorraine afterwards, and so were our families. We would recommend Lorraine to any of our friends or family getting married. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.”
Nicole and Joshua
7 December 2013
Dear Lorraine, we would like to say a heartfelt ‘THANK YOU’ for our wonderful ceremony and all your support in the past months. We truly could not have found a better, lovelier or more professional celebrant. You made us feel welcome, at ease and in good hands. Not once did we have to worry about anything. You have largely contributed to our day becoming as special as we had wished for, and for that, we are sincerely grateful. Thank you so much!
To anyone considering engaging Lorraine’s celebrancy services, may we say that Lorraine is exceptional! When we first met with Lorraine, we found her to be very easy to engage with and we had an immediate rapport. We were absolutely impressed by her professionalism, attitude and continuous help and advice. It was a great relief in such a busy time of planning to know that our ceremony was taken care of so expertly.
Lorraine was able to identify with us as a couple, and developed a ceremony that was a truly perfect fit, which set the tone and rhythm for our perfect day. All our guests loved our ceremony, and many asked afterwards for a copy of the transcript and the beautiful words enclosed.
We had the pleasure of experiencing a second wedding ceremony in Germany; in hindsight, Lorraine’s performance was flawless. The initial dream and image of a perfect wedding —to which the ceremony is important— can be stressful and difficult to realise. Lorraine was key to making this dream come true for us. We could not have found a more suitable, friendlier and more professional celebrant for this special occasion.”
Julia and Brendan
Lorraine, both Philippa and I can’t stress enough how grateful we are for all your help on our special day. Even my cousin and his wife who got married a month before us said they would have preferred to go with you! We truthfully could not fault you in any way. Thank you.”
Matthew and Philippa,
Lorraine, thank you so much for making our ceremony so beautiful; it was truly amazing. From the moment we first met you, we thought what a wonderful, nice person you are, and we knew right away that we had to have you to marry us! Thank you for all your hard work in preparing our ceremony and for being so kind. You made the process so much easier. We will be contacting you down the line hopefully for a baby naming ceremony 🙂 ”
Elizabeth and David
Thank you so much, Lorraine, for giving us the most perfect ceremony! You captured who we are and made the ceremony individualised so it could only be for the two of us. Also, mentioning our family in the ceremony was a lovely touch. You were so helpful and friendly throughout the whole process from our first meeting up until the rehearsal and then our ceremony. Thank you also for your efficiency. You emailed us just hours after our ceremony letting us know you had lodged our marriage documents online and you provided us with extremely helpful information to assist in the name change process. So thank you again for everything! We would certainly recommend you to everyone.”
Kirk and Ayrelie
Lorraine was referred to us by our wedding photographer after we had already met with 2 other celebrants, one of whom we liked, but we decided out of courtesy to our photographer to meet with Lorraine – and we are so glad that we did. From the very first contact with Lorraine, her professionalism was apparent, and once we met in person, we could tell that Lorraine was super organised, and had lots of information and helpful tips for our ceremony.
But above all, her enthusiasm for her work was obvious. She is warm and friendly, and makes you feel totally at ease, as if you had known her for years. Lorraine takes the time to get to know you, so she wrote the most amazing story about us, which captured our lives perfectly. She recommended readings that suited our personalities and which had our guests laughing and crying their way through our ceremony.
Afterwards, we had many comments from guests as to how wonderful Lorraine was. We would thoroughly recommend Lorraine’s celebrancy services to anyone and will definitely be using her again in the future.
Thank you once again Lorraine, you truly made our day a more memorable one.”
Jackie and Brett
Lorraine Wright was a fantastic celebrant from start to finish, and we could not have been happier with the decision to use her. From first impressions Lorraine is highly organised, articulate and extremely professional with her services. She personalised our ceremony in ways I would never have thought of, and it made the event that much more special! My family were very impressed with Lorraine’s delivery of the wedding ceremony and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to other couples and families for their special occasion.
Lorraine, thank you for making our ceremony run smoothly, and so elegantly! Everything went to plan and your services were flawless! Thank you.”
Danielle and Savong
Lorraine, it was an absolute blessing having you as our celebrant. You were just as excited to be a part of our ‘Surprise Wedding’ as we were planning it. Everything went so smoothly with the ceremony and I could not fault a thing. Thank you so much for everything.”

Lorraine paid a lot of attention to who we were as a couple when writing our ceremony, which resulted in a really lovely, personalised and intimate ceremony. Lorraine is well-spoken, and organised, making us feel at ease throughout the planning process. We recommend Lorraine as a celebrant for any wedding!”

On reading their personalised ceremony for the first time:
Hi Lorraine. Thank you so, so much for such beautiful writing! Scott and I really love the relaxed but eloquent style and feel the level of detail in our love story is just right. Thank you again for all of the time and thought that you’ve put into our ceremony – we know it will be absolutely perfect with much credit to you! Best, Elise”
Following their marriage ceremony:
Lorraine wholly exceeded our expectations of a marriage celebrant and without her guidance I’m certain the ceremony would not have run so smoothly nor been so enjoyable. From our first meeting with her we knew that we were in safe, experienced hands – she was friendly and professional, so organised and efficient, with genuine and thoughtful ideas for personalising our ceremony. She helped us to decide on elements of the wedding that we hadn’t even thought to consider ourselves! On the day the tone and atmosphere were just perfect as she shared our history and our humour with our guests. We wholeheartedly recommend Lorraine as a celebrant to any couple getting married – her caring and professional manner make her a natural and she will add just the right touch to any special day.”
Elise and Scott
Lorraine was instrumental in helping make our wedding perfect. Our ceremony and reception were at home, and Lorraine guided us in how to arrange the area and where we would stand etc. It meant when we walked in, we knew where we were going and what would happen.
Lorraine’s first draft of the ceremony script was near perfect. It was easy to choose the optional parts (vows, the asking etc) as she provided three options she thought would appeal to us. We tailored the vows and chose the other sections without changes. It was much easier than I expected.
Lorraine’s ‘performance’ on the day was exceptional. She was perfectly attired, early, introduced herself to our families and explained how the readings would work to those involved (as we opted not to have a formal rehearsal). She also joined us for a glass of fizz afterwards, which we were hoping she’d do. Many of our guests commented on how fabulous Lorraine was, and how the ceremony was a perfect mix of Jamie and me (which is mostly down to Lorraine’s suggestions and input).
I would happily recommend Lorraine to anyone who wants someone with excellent experience, is friendly and as neat as a pin, and has exceptional organisational skills.”
Meredith and Jamie
We immediately felt comfortable with Lorraine from the very first meeting. She was extremely genuine and fitted well with our personalities. Every meeting and email was so well organised; she was always professional, but also warm and put us at ease. We were delighted with how she conducted the ceremony on the day, and many of our friends and family commented on what a fantastic job she did (and they are still doing so!). We would not hesitate for one second to recommend Lorraine’s celebrant services.
Dear Lorraine, thank you so much for marrying us last Saturday – you did a fabulous job. One of our friends even commented that you were the best celebrant they have seen (and they’ve been to a LOT of weddings!). Thanks also for the follow up regarding name changing, that will be a big help.”
KR and RF
Lorraine, thank you so much for everything! You made the whole ceremony & lead-up really easy, relaxed and comfortable! Everything was just perfect! Wouldn’t change a thing! We had such a wonderful day! We so lucky with the weather! Once again, Lorraine, thanks so much for being part of our day & for doing such an amazing job! We are forever grateful!”
Phil and Vanessa
Thank you so much for our beautiful ceremony. It was personalised and beautiful. Exactly what we wanted! Thank you so much for all your help on the day, you were a lifesaver!”
Nick and Caroline
From our first meeting, we were confident that Lorraine was the perfect choice for our wedding ceremony. Her calm, professional manner assured us that we were in the right hands.
We also appreciated the time Lorraine took to guide us through the various options for our ceremony, and the obvious care she took in drafting our vows. The folder of material Lorraine provided at our initial meeting was really helpful when planning our ceremony. Her feedback around the length of the ceremony was also much appreciated – we would have otherwise gone with a much shorter version, which we might have regretted.
On the day itself, Lorraine did a wonderful job in calming our nerves and ensuring that the ceremony ran like clockwork. Thank you Lorraine for all your help on our special day.”

Lorraine understood us immediately. Her first draft of our wedding ceremony was virtually perfect – showing that she listened carefully and was also very intuitive. We had tried to avoid a frumpy middle-aged celebrant – and this Lorraine certainly wasn’t! She presented very well, spoke professionally and added warmth and humour to our ceremony. I can honestly say I would recommend her to anybody and will be very willing to utilise her again for other family celebrations.”

Lorraine Wright instilled confidence in us from the beginning. Well organised, professional, punctual, warm and enthusiastic, she exceeded our expectations. Both myself and Jessica, after meeting Lorraine for the first time, looked at each other and said, “Yes, that’s our celebrant”. The readings and the whole ceremony captured us perfectly and the effort put in by Lorraine was easy to see. Her attention to detail and commitment were truly appreciated.
Thanks Lorraine. Hope we meet again.”

On reading their personalised ceremony for the first time:
Hi Lorraine, We love the ceremony! It sounds perfect – just how we wanted it! Thanks, Angela and Sean.”
Following their marriage ceremony:
Lorraine made us feel comfortable and at ease from the initial contact all the way through to our special day. Lorraine was always extremely organised, had the answer to all our questions, and nothing was ever too hard for her to do. Lorraine helped us make our ceremony special and unique, and we had such great feedback from family and friends commenting on how much they enjoyed our ceremony. We are so lucky that we found Lorraine – we never had to worry about anything related to the ceremony, and she has also been fantastic post-wedding with providing information and assistance with name changing. We highly recommend Lorraine – we could not have asked for a better celebrant. Thanks so much Lorraine!!! PS. We have already recommended you to a friend who is getting married =)”

We just knew as soon as we spoke and then met with Lorraine, that she would be perfect. She has great knowledge and experience of the processes involved and was extremely thorough in everything she did. Professional and also highly competent, Lorraine was for us the perfect Celebrant, and we could not have asked any more from her. She well and truly exceeded our expectations.
Lorraine made our ceremony for us and it was a fantastic day, thanks to Lorraine. Both Renee and I highly recommend Lorraine to you as your choice of Celebrant for your wedding.”

On reading their personalised ceremony for the first time:
Hi Lorraine, had a read through this morning and loved it, loved it, loved it!! I don’t want any changes at all!
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Love every word, thanks heaps Lorraine!! Chat soon. Steph.”
Following their marriage ceremony:
Lorraine, you exceeded above and beyond our expectations. From guiding the initial process to personalising our ceremony to perfecting our dream ceremony and everything in between, we couldn’t have asked for more. There was not a dry eye from our guests and everyone spoke of your effortless diligence. Thank you.”

On reading their personalised ceremony for the first time:
Everything is great. The story about us is fantastic and the grandparent part is perfect! Thanks. Jodie.”
Following their marriage ceremony:
We were pleased with all of Lorraine’s efforts. Lorraine was clear and didn’t hesitate to suggest ways of doing things. One of our big concerns was having a long ceremony; we wanted it short and sweet and that’s what we got.
We were 100% happy with everything and will recommend Lorraine’s services to other couples. Thank you.”

I had the pleasure of working with Celebrant Lorraine Wright at a wedding just yesterday. Her warm smile and kind and caring disposition displayed true passion and care for what she does. This is rare for celebrants these days as so many just do it for money and not for love as well. My business shoots over 300 weddings a year and we work with most celebrants in NSW.
Lorraine demonstrates class and sophistication with warmth which is a perfect combination when performing wedding ceremonies. I will be adding her to my website referral page and look forward to working with her again. If you would like to discuss anything further please don’t hesitate to drop me an email at email@example.com”

Our wedding was planned and executed in a very short time frame of approximately 3 months. We could not have achieved this if it wasn’t for the superb organisation skills of Lorraine.
Lorraine comes across as a calm, confident professional, and she spent time understanding our individual tastes, style and needs. This was projected along with her attention to detail in our lovely, memorable wedding. Lorraine not only mastered a smooth and seamless ceremony, she managed the whole bridal party consisting of 14 in total. Her continual communication with us all enabled us to feel at ease and gave me great confidence that everything would run smoothly on the day.
Surprises are always expected, and when our bridal transport was delayed, Lorraine was quick to take control of the situation and ensure there were no more complications.
The biggest compliment to me were the tears of joy that my family and friends shared with us during our most beautiful ceremony! Thank you, Lorraine.
Both Derek and I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend Lorraine to you as your personal Celebrant for your special day.”

Just a quick note to thank you so much for being with us on our big day. When we first started organising our ceremony, we had a very basic idea of the way we wanted things to be. You helped us to turn our thoughts and ideas into a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. Your help and suggestions were very much appreciated. We had a beautiful day, thanks again.”
