Lorraine, thank you so much for the lovely service you did for our mum's final farewell.
You relayed the happy years we all had together in a lovely way. Although it was a sad day, you made it a day to be proud of the special memories we have to treasure.
Thank you for all the help you gave trying to fit 86 years of my mum's life into a perfect service.
Best wishes to you
Janet & Stephen
It was my pleasure. As I said on the day, your mum sounded lovely and I wish I had met her x
ZOOM Ceremony (Worldwide!) | May 2020
A HUGE thank you for yesterday. We weren’t sure what to expect with Zoom and our reaffirmation, but from first contact with you, I began to feel so relaxed.
You made our day something special and without you, Julieanne and Derryn and all our friends our Golden Wedding would have been just an ordinary day.
So once again thank you for making our day a day to remember.
We would highly recommend you to anyone needing a celebrant.
Take care and love and best wishes.
Betty and Ged
You are SO welcome. I loved every single moment and it was great to see so many happy faces all celebrating with you (albeit from their home). Congratulations on your 50 years of marriage xxx
Springwood Crematorium | March 2020
I just wanted to say a big thank you from all of the Smith family for the brilliant service you gave for Peter.
Everybody has said how lovely it was. A personal thank you from me for making a very difficult day go so smoothly, you made it sound like you knew Peter personally.
Thank you again
Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to write. It truly was a privilege to help you and Peter’s family and friends say “thank you and farewell” to Peter. My very best wishes to you all.
The Athenaeum, Liverpool | November 2019
Matt and I wanted to say an enormous thank you for being pivotal in making our wedding day so wonderful.
Everyone was blown away by your warmth, humour, friendliness and how perfectly you captured mine and Matt’s relationship and love.
A few people thought we had known each other for years!!
You truly were amazing, before, during, and after our day and I look forward to having you at any future celebrations!
Lots of love
Genevieve xxx + Matt xxx
Thank you so much for your kind words. I loved every minute of getting to know you both and you have no idea how delighted I am that I was your Celebrant! Your wedding will always be one of my favourite days - from the Bestmen demonstrating a selection of handshakes to the brass band and everything in between! My very best wishes to you both and I hope to see you again for another happy celebration xxx
Holland Hall, Upholland | February 2020
It is difficult to describe how brilliant Lorraine is, she makes what is already a special day extraordinary.
Every single one of our guests literally gushed about how amazing the ceremony was, and indeed it was.
Lorraine has an amazing ability to to take the essence of how to two people feel about each other and put it into words, she has a real gift.
Our hotel venue said that Lorraine was the best celebrant they had ever had and hopes that she would be back again at some point and would recommend her if asked.
Sharon and I can’t thank you enough Lorraine for making our day extra special, you're an amazing woman with the ability to to make people laugh, cry and be thankful for everything they have together.
Sharon and Gill, it was my pleasure. The room was full of love - for and from you both. It was such a privilege to be part of your special day, thank you so much for entrusting me with your wedding ceremony, all the best for the future xxx
Titanic Hotel, Liverpool | September 0019
9th November 2019.
What an absolutely amazing day!
Just perfect in every way.
We’ve spent the last 48 hours feeling pretty overwhelmed (and speechless, for once!) as we couldn’t have dreamed of a better celebration!
The ceremony was so beautiful and heartfelt. Thank you Lorraine Hull for your ability to get the tone and balance just right in such a sensitive situation. The handfasting was wonderful!
Thank you for your kind words. You are absolutely amazing and I’m glad that your day of celebration was amazing too
Anfield Crematorium | May 0018
Really sorry this has taken me a few days to say a huge thank you.
You gave our mum such a wonderful send off, you were the best person for the job! I think my mum sent you to us.
Everyone said how excellent you were.
Our very very best wishes to you.
You made our family feel special.
Thank you once again
Springwood Crematorium | December 0019
Dear Lorraine, on behalf of myself, Peter, Andrew and William, thank you so much for the way you organised and conducted George's Celebration. You made a very sad and difficult day a bit more bearable. Love Carol xx
Constellations, Liverpool | July 2019
When we picked Lorraine as our celebrant it was one of the BEST decisions we made in our entire wedding.
Lorraine is literally the most down to earth, kind and wonderful professional.
From the second we met both my husband and I knew she was the perfect fit.
The tailor made vows she created suited us perfectly, we had so many comments about how amazing she was; how funny, calming and personable.
We had met three times yet it felt like a friend we had known for years leading our ceremony (one friend even thought she knew us before!)
We cannot recommend Lorraine enough.
Wow! Emily and Craig thank you so much for your kind words. I loved getting to know you both and being part of your wedding day. My very best wishes to you for all of your Great Adventures xxx
Tyn Dwr Hall, Llangollen | August 2019
Lorraine was the first and last celebrant we spoke to because we knew instantly that she was the person we wanted to marry us.
She was so warm and seemed to just get ‘us’ and what we wanted the ceremony to be like straight away.
We booked Lorraine about 2 years before the wedding and she kept in regular contact throughout.
We planned the ceremony via email and then in person nearer the time which was really helpful.
We were both pretty clueless about how to structure the service and what we wanted to say but Lorraine made the process so much easier by providing lots of materials to chose from.
Lorraine remembered everything we told her and really listened to what we wanted.
She took everything we said and incorporated it into the ceremony to make it super personal and relaxed.
We couldn’t have hoped for a better ceremony- there was so much laughter and some happy tears.
On the day itself Lorraine was such a calming presence and we both felt instantly relaxed with her there.
If you want a personal ceremony then we would not hesitate in recommending Lorraine.
Thank you SO MUCH for your testimonial. Your wedding will stay with me forever (and I can’t see a pashmina without thinking of you both xxx)
West Tower Aughton | November 2019
If you are looking for a warm, sincere, funny, organised, experienced, professional celebrant who can write and deliver a heartfelt and personalised ceremony, then look no further. Lorraine is truly exceptional at what she does. At our wedding (civil partnership conversion to marriage) recently, she created the most perfect and memorable ceremony. So many guests commented how she made it so special, so about us and so emotional. It was filled with family, tears, love and laughter. Exactly what we asked for. We simply cannot thank her enough for creating such wonderful memories (and in such a short timescale too!). Thanks Lorraine Xxxx
30 James Street, Liverpool | September 2019
Thank you so much for making our day what it was.
So glad we picked you.
You made us feel relaxed and you were able to put a great ceremony together despite us only getting together a few days before the wedding.
We appreciate the fact that you were able to do this in the little time you had after we first met so 'thank you' for that.
It was great to meet you and thanks for everything.
Lyn & John xx
The Farm, Astley | August 2019
From preparing our ideal wedding, to the big day itself and after, Lorraine was amazing.
Lorraine really did embrace our informal, relaxed and fun celebrations.
We laughed so much and didn’t stop smiling and our guests all said how personal the whole ceremony was.
Our pup, Beatrice, loved being the VIP ring bearer too!
Lorraine, thank you so much and thank you for our script that has just arrived.
It was lovely to relive it all again!
At home, in our garden | August 2019
Gordon and I cannot thank Lorraine enough for helping us making our special day even more special.
We had discussed what we wanted and nothing was too much trouble.
Lorraine took everything in that we asked for and everything fell in place perfectly.
We had everyone involved on our special day...
Candles were lit for our passed loved ones, mum's gift of a rose, Ted (our dog) carrying the rings to be blessed by our guests.
We had laughs, we had happy tears, we had speeches and made memories.
The sun shone and everyone had a fabulous magical day and evening.
It was perfect and finished with our guest of honour to get everyone laughing, dancing and singing at our beautiful garden wedding, x
Rowton Hall, Cheshire | July 2019
Lorraine was the celebrant at our wedding on 14.07.19. She did an amazing job. From the outset Lorraine was quick to respond to our questions and enthusiastic to help with anything she could. We live in Australia so we only met Lorraine 3 days before our wedding but we already felt like we knew her well thanks to the numerous friendly emails and phone calls we had exchanged. Lorraine's warm and bubbly personality created a relaxed atmosphere and she struck exactly the right balance between humour and serious stuff as we had asked! We throughly enjoyed our ceremony and so did our guests. We're so glad that we found Lorraine to be our celebrant and can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Lorraine.
Thank you so much for your kind words Amy. I loved every moment that I spent getting to know you and Graham and felt exactly the same, as you, once we actually met in person! It was a privilege to be a part of your big day, thank you for entrusting me with your ceremony (and being so fully engaged in the planning process - you were both a dream to work with
Hulme Hall, Wirral | July 2019
Omg the book that you made us is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, it’s unique and will be treasured forever and something I look forward to going through with our children one day (poor kids lol).
Thank you so much. Everyone commented on how personal and lovely the ceremony was, and that they have never been to a wedding like it. It was perfect, the most perfect part of the day which is exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much, it means so much.
Thornton Manor, Wirral | June 2019
Ellie and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you.
Thank you for all your help and support not only in the wedding but in the meetings leading up to it.
It was an absolutely pleasure working with you, and thank you for making our ceremony so memorable.
We both are so pleased with how the day went. The ceremony was beautiful. Thank you so much for all the work you put into making our day special.
All the very best to you.
From Ellie and myself xx
Palm House, Sefton Park, Liverpool | June 2019
Oh Lorraine! I've just got home to let coco out and our script was in the post box! I've just cried reading it! It's amazing I love the flamingo! You made our day so so special.

A magical day ❤️
Our bespoke ceremony was perfect.
We enjoyed every second of it.
We couldn't imagine anyone better than you to have carried
out such an important part of our special day.
You were truly amazing.
Thank you Caron & Craig ❤️
It was an absolute pleasure to be part of your special day. Thank you for entrusting such an important occasion to my care. I loved every minute that I spent with you and crafting your wedding ceremony. I doubt that anyone else will ever give the gift of a golf club, instead of a wedding ring - LOVED it! Enjoy your champagne and love letters on your anniversary - I will be thinking of you xx
One Fine Day, Liverpool | June 2019
Thank you so much for being part of our special occasion, you were so wonderful and loads of people commented on how brilliantly you told our story. We had an absolute ball and loved every minute of it!

Knowsley Hall | June 2019
Our wedding was absolutely perfect! The detail in the ceremony came together so beautifully. Everyone has commented to us how much they loved it and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room!
We cannot thank you enough for making our day and our ceremony so special.
Aw, I'm delighted that you and your guests enjoyed your wedding ceremony. The elements paying tribute to your homeland and heritage were super-charged with emotion - I'm not surprised everyone had a tear in their eyes! But, they were all happy tears! xxx
1539 Restaurant, Chester Racecourse | June 2019
Just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed our day last Saturday. We couldn’t have been more happy – you completely understood us, our guests and our children. Our friends all wrote to us this week to say that the whole day had been wonderful but in particular, they said that the ceremony was perfectly written to suit us and our family. Thank you for your patience, flexibility and for taking the time to get to know us – it meant so much. You made the process, which we were finding quite daunting, so easy and we now have a wonderful keepsake too with the copy of the ceremony.
Thank you also from Izzy for the thoughtful butterfly gift – she’s thrilled and will remember the day for ever.
Thanks again Lorraine
Nikki and Philip xx

You did my mum proud so thank you so very much from us all. She would have been pleased.

GreenAcres, Rainford | April 2019
We all thought Mum and Dad’s Memorial Service was ‘just right’, with our thanks to you for helping us put it together, and for leading such a fitting, dignified and worthy service, as we said our farewells to them both, although of course they will be forever in our hearts. We were so proud of them.
We think they would have been very content with the day.
We were very grateful to you for printing off service sheets for us to follow, and keep.
With thanks again, from Neil, myself and all the family
Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write. I'm glad that you found the service fitting for your mum and dad - and for you and your family.

We would like to Thank Lorraine for making our day at Anfield a dream come true, both me and my husband Wayne were really excited for the big day and Lorraine had everything in hand and made our day effortless, Lorraine presented us with our certificate and vows in a beautiful tied ribbon presentation booklet and also honoured our day with a red string with star bracelet, this represented our wish for the future, we are still wearing them with pride!
Again we would like to thank Lorraine from the bottom of our hearts for all she did for us on our wedding day. sending hugs Mia and Wayne
Ah, thank you so much. It was great being part of your special day and I’m glad that you felt your dream wedding cake true. My best wishes and love to you both - if I’m ever back in Perth I will give you a shout (if you’re in Liverpool, you do the same) xxx

Anfield Crematorium | January 2019
Thank you so much for your very kind words, your professionalism, support and help on such a difficult day for the the family was invaluable. After meeting with you, we always felt that entrusting you with Tom's Eulogy was the perfect thing for the family to do, as we knew that we were passing our words into your very safe hands. Your portrayal of Tom was kind and warm and captured his spirit and finishing the service with the Physicist reading was truly perfect and everyone at the service felt that it if Tom could have spoken, he would have chosen those words and that meant so much to the family. It was a lovely service and we know that Tom would have given his approval too and for that we have no words can truly express our gratitude to you.
Thank you so much also for saying that you would have liked to have met Tom, we are sure that if you would have met him you would have be taken by his kind, caring and gentle nature, he was a mine of fascinating information and also have a wicked sense of humour, you could not have helped but have liked him.
All our Love
Marian and all of Tommy's family.
Thank you for entrusting me with the privilege of helping you, and your family, to say farewell to Tom. I really meant it when I said that I wished I had met him!
Anfield Crematorium | January 2019
Lorraine, just a few words of thanks for the service of John.
The story you told were the stepping stones of John's life and reflected his character in full. Your reading of the first few lines of the last song was very emotional and people commented on how it was woven into naming Lettie as the person he was joining.
Once again, thank you for your exceptional and professional gift to our family.
Thank you Eric, it was truly my privilege to help give thanks and say farewell to John. Thank you for your kind words, they are appreciated and mean a lot to me.
Hope Street Hotel, Liverpool | December 2018
We live in Australia but got married in Liverpool, UK. Initially we were worried about choosing a celebrant online, however, from the first time we FaceTimed Lorraine we knew we'd found our celebrant! Lorraine has many fantastic qualities and skills but we cannot recommend her without praising her listening skills. Not only does Lorraine hear you but she understands; meaning she is able to translate your words into a wonderful reality. Throughout the whole wedding planning process we felt Lorraine was invested in our day and went above and beyond to deliver perfection. Lorraine is extremely generous with her knowledge and was always there to offer advice and provide creative ideas. Being overseas Lorraine built our trust through responsive and clear communications. If you are considering Lorraine do not hesitate she is fantastic - thank you Lorraine!
Julieanne and Derryn, thank you so much for your kind words. It is people like you that make my working life so great. You were a joy to work with, and for. I had that same feeling the first time we FaceTimed too (and every other time that we spoke!) That feeling was: "you were exactly right for me" and I was so pleased when you chose me as your Celebrant! Very best wishes for the future and lots of love, Lorraine xxx
Springwood Crematorium | December 2018
Dorothy and I would like to express our sincere thanks for a truly wonderful service you provided today for my Dad. It was very moving, so well managed.

Dear John and Dorothy

Lorraine, you really made my wedding the best day ever and we can never thank you enough. What you do for people is amazing, I will never forget it. Other than having out little boy, it was the best day of my life.

Would definitely recommend for any special day.

Thank you so much for all the work you did on our ceremony. It was everything I’d dreamt of and more. You are a very talented speaker and story-teller.

Liverpool | May 2018
I cannot begin to thank Lorraine for the beautiful ceremony she performed for our daughters Naming Day.
I have known Lorraine professionally for a couple of years now, and from the first time I met her I knew that if I ever had children, I would want her to perform some sort of service for them. Her gentle nature makes everyone feel instantly comfortable yet she conducts herself with 100% professionalism at all times (even in the 26 degree heat that our outdoor ceremony took place in).
Lorraine came to meet myself and my husband at our home and from the short time she spent with us, I knew that she instinctively understood what we wanted for the day and we had every confidence she would deliver the perfect ceremony and did she ever! It was the most beautifully structured and conducted service and it was so personal to us thanks to the time the Lorraine had taken to get to know us.
All of our guests have commented on how beautiful the service was and I cannot recommend Lorraine highly enough. If you are looking for a celebrant who will give you a truly personal and unique experience, look no further, you have found her! I will definately be telling everyone about Lorraine and I'm sure we will be calling on her services again in the future. If I could give 10 stars I would :)
Thank you Lorraine,
Bernadette, Paul and Anaís x x
Oh my goodness... thank you so much for your lovely review (which made me cry!).
It was an absolute pleasure to be part of Anais' special day - and also to help you and Paul celebrate your 2nd wedding anniversary. Thank you for giving me the privilege.
Very best wishes
PS: Your speech was incredible!

Huw's ceremony was great. It was wonderful that you were so relaxed and flexible when Huw was expressing his hanger!
Lots of guests were very complimentary about the ceremony so thank you very much for putting it all together.

Formby Hall | March 2018
From the moment we met Lorraine we knew she was perfect for doing the ceremony for our little girl.
We instantly felt at ease and saw that she understood what we wanted to get out of the ceremony.
Lorraine provided us with ideas and readings but at all times reminded us that it was our day and we could make it how we wanted.
On the actual day she did an amazing ceremony. She involved everybody important to us and made it so personal and warm. All the family commented how lovely the service was.
We can’t recommend Lorraine highly enough. Thankyou so much.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I know that I have already said it, but it was truly a privilege to be part of such a special day for your family. I really appreciate that you chose me to be your Celebrant and I am so glad that you did, because I have lovely memories of the day too.
Lots of love to you all xxx

Words can’t describe how special you made us feel Lorraine. You put us at ease , and I personally felt that instead of 40 yrs it was our first time around.

St George's Hall Concert Room, Liverpool | September 2017
Having experienced difficulties finding an available registrar for our preferred wedding date, a friend recommended Lorraine as an alternative.... Wow, were we glad we had to go to a plan B!
Lorraine was a delight! She was so helpful and accommodating and we instantly warmed to her, feeling so natural and at ease. We had some input into the ceremony, but Lorraine tied everything in perfectly, with some beautiful words and unity candles and we were able to have a ceremony not only personal to us, but a funny, heart-warming service that all our friends and family enjoyed so much too!
We would highly recommend Lorraine! As it was the best wedding ceremony we could have wished for.
Thank you Lorraine!
Kate, thank you so much for your kind words. It was my pleasure to be part of your special day; I have lovely memories of your wedding ceremony too. My best wishes to you both (& Everton ????)
Inglenook Farm, Rainford | September 2017
We can't thank you enough for what you did for us. Our ceremony was beautiful and you told our story so lovingly and wonderfully and everyone commented the same to us afterwards. Apparently we made many hearts of stone cry across the room!!
Our wedding was everything we ever wanted, expected and even more!! Lots of feedback was about how much love everyone could feel in one space!!!
You weren't just someone who performed our ceremony, you made our ceremony the beautiful memorable event that it was. You were there with us from the beginning right up to the day and your input and support were invaluable and your involvement was so genuine and loving.
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts ♥️
Ah thank you, it means a lot. I loved being part of your day (I'm not just saying that!) it felt like I was at the wedding of friends that I had known you for years.

Rob and I were absolutely thrilled with how the ceremony went! Also, I'm really glad that we decided to do the handfasting as it has made for such a beautiful souvenir of the day! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you.

Prenton, Wirral | June 2017
The ceremony was everything we wanted it to be and more. You spoke so beautifully and we loved the way you incorporated the sentiments of the reading into your own pieces. Everyone told us that how much they too enjoyed the ceremony and how well you conducted it.
Thank you again - for yesterday and for all your support in the lead up.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I am glad that you, and your guests, enjoyed your ceremony. I hope that you had a great celebration last evening.

Woolton Picture House, Liverpool | July 2017
Lorraine was absolutely amazing in both the run up to our wedding and also on the big day, providing support and ideas for us throughout. She tailored the ceremony to reflect us and included some wonderful personal touches including beautiful cards with our vows on. The amount of people who spoke to us about her afterwards to praise her was incredible. So lucky to have found her! Thanks a million Lorraine! X
Thank you Pippa. I actually posted on Facebook about how much I love my job when I got home yesterday! You and David had done so much to make your day special and it was great to see it all come together at The Woolton Picturehouse. The film shown before you walked down the aisle had me in tears and then you both did it again with your beautiful personal vows :) My very best wishes to you for the future xxx
Racquet Club, Liverpool | July 2017
Lorraine, it was such a pleasure to work with you, planning our reaffirmation of our wedding this year. Thank you for conducting a truly special and unique service which was perfect for us. You took our own ideas of what we wanted and put them together into a lovely ceremony which all our friends have said was so right for us.
Thanks again for helping make our Liverpool wedding so special. We would highly recommend your services to all.
Thank you Nerida. It was a privilege to help you reaffirm your wedding vows and I loved every minute! I wish only good things for team Lloyd and long live the Liveroo...
Liverpool Town Hall | October 2016
Lorraine conducted the renewal of our vows and we couldn't have asked for a better person to do it. She answered any questions we had and had some fantastic suggestions for the service.

You were great to work with and we'd recommend you to everybody! xx
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to spend time with you and Andy to plan your ceremony and great to help you celebrate, with your family, yesterday.

The Cloisters, Bolton | September 2016
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything.
We found Lorraine via Google and it was meant to be! We live in Sydney but wanted to have the wedding back in the UK with friends and family. It was a challenge to organise everything from here but by a stroke of luck Lorraine was visiting Sydney on holiday, she kindly took time out to meet with us in person and explain everything that we needed to do I preparation for the big day.
From start to finish Lorraine was amazing, she kept in regular contact via email and Facetime and always put any worries we had at ease! Thank you again for being part of our special day!
Thank you so much Victoria. It was a pleasure to be part of your celebrations. I have many happy memories, of your wedding day, so I can't imagine how many you must have! My very best wishes to you and Nilesh for a long and happy life together xxx
Wigwam, Liverpool | March 2017
Lorraine conducted a naming ceremony for our son this weekend. She is absolutely fantastic! She gave us lots of ideas for readings and included some lovely touches in the ceremony like the 'blending of the sands'. She is extremely approachable and was always open to our ideas and suggestions too. The end result was a ceremony that was completely bespoke and so personal. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her if you are considering a naming ceremony for your child. We're so grateful Lorraine. Thank you for a wonderful celebration! X
Laura, thank you so much for your kind words. I loved working with you, and Ben, to create Hugh's ceremony. You found exactly the right balance of traditional and personal and it really worked well. I must confess to a few tears when the grandparents were reading their poem! Very best wishes to everyone and thank you, once again, for entrusting such a special day to my care x
Liverpool Town Hall | June 2016
Thank you so much for being our celebrant! You made our day so special and so much better than we expected. The words you chose were so personal to us and allowed our families to re-live our wedding in Mexico. The ceremony that you chose with the candles was a lovely moment and meant a lot. Everybody back here in Mexico is still talking about it and agreed that it was a much nicer ceremony than the original one we had here. I wish you all the success in the future Lorraine, it is very much deserved. Te mandamos muchos abrazos! Paul & Abi
Muchas gracias xxx It was my pleasure to be a small part of a special day for you and I really enjoyed meeting you and your family. I wish you the very best for the rest of your life together. ¡Que seaís felices para siempre!
Kings Acre, Saughall | August 2017
Words can not express how overwhelmed we both were with how well Lorraine planned and conducted our wedding ceremony. Such an amazing lady making us feel very comfortable and relaxed. We actually ended up enjoying reading our vows with no nerves! Received a lovely delivery this week of our ceremony printed and presented beautifully. Thank you Lorraine xx
Thank you so much for your kind words. I loved meeting you and Laura and helping to design a ceremony that fitted in with the rest of your ideas for your big day. You both looked gorgeous and VERY happy and the lakeside setting and marquee were fab! I wish only good things for you both: love, laughter and happiness xxx
St Peter's Pavilion, Hindley | August 2017
Thank you so much for the beautiful, personal service you created for our son's naming ceremony. From the moment we first got in touch, to the day itself, everything was handled in a professional, friendly manner and the end result was absolutely perfect! We wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to others, thanks again!
Ah, Carrie, thank you so much for your kind words. I am so lucky to meet lovely families like yours, spend time celebrating important days with them, and be able to call this my job! I enjoyed every moment that I spent with you, Paul and Theo and I can't wait to see what you have planned for your gorgeous little boy at Halloween! ???? xxx
St George's Hall, Liverpool | May 2017
We cannot express how happy we are to have Lorraine officiate our wedding ceremony last month. She was absolutely brilliant! She made the planning process of the ceremony stress-free and tailored it to exactly how we wanted it to be and more. As my husband and I are from two different cultures, our guests and I are amazed how she was able to incorporate a balance of elements from both cultures, British and Filipino. Lorraine is amazing! She goes above and beyond to make your wedding day truly special. She is very responsive to your messages and takes the time to meet with you in person before the wedding. She even makes sure everything is prepared and ready on the day such as printed vows, lighted candles, and coordinating with your wedding entourage and photographers, videographers, venue coordinators, etc. Lorraine is very organised, any bride and groom would be lucky to have her as their celebrant. We can't thank you enough - Cheers, Michelle & James xxx
Michelle and James thank you so much for your lovely words. I loved working with you to ensure that your ceremony was memorable, for you and your guests, and I am so glad that you enjoyed your day. I really enjoyed meeting your family and friends and the amount of love, in St George's Hall, between, and for, you both was palpable. My very best wishes to you for the future and thanks again xxx

I am a friendly, approachable, patient, passionate, compassionate and caring 'people' person.
I pride myself on my professionalism, listening and writing skills, attention to detail, punctuality, dependability, and being fully prepared but I am flexible, resourceful and more than capable of thinking on my feet - all with a reassuring demeanour and a good sense of humour (this feels a bit like an online dating profile!)
You may well notice that there is a lot of laughter in the photos of my wedding and naming ceremonies, and laughter is often mentioned in the testimonials and reviews that couples and families have written. Again, (like four-legged friends) laughter isn't compulsory, but I do seem to attract a lot of fun-loving people who want their personality to be reflected within their ceremony and that often involves humorous anecdotes, readings, or random funny comments from the couple or their guests - there are almost always tears of pure joy too (but there are less photos of those moments)
I love what I do...
I think that all Celebrants would say the same. We feel extremely privileged to be part of the celebrations of life's special moments. Along with the privilege, comes great responsibility - I take both very seriously.
You can be confident that I will do everything, that I can, to ensure that your ceremony goes exactly how you want it to be - I promise that your ceremony will be in safe hands.
I strongly believe that all people should all be treated kindly, fairly and with respect. We are all unique and we all matter. I advocate kindness, fairness, respect and equality for all through everything that I say and do: Love is Love, Family is Family, Life is Life. I am proud to be recommended by LGBTQ Equality Weddings and delighted to be part of their community of suppliers.
I am a member of The Celebrants Collective and I am committed to supporting other celebrants and continuing my own professional development, I have adopted The Funeral Celebrancy Council's 'Celebrant Accord' and I hold Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance.
In addition to my Celebrancy qualifications I am a member of Humanists U.K. and have studied public speaking, creative writing and journalism.
I love drinking tea - preferably with cake, company and a chat. But gallons of tea (and a fair bit of cake) also help fuel my creativity when I am alone, in my home office (or a pleasant cafe), researching, planning and preparing your ceremonies.
Oh, and did I mention that I love my job?
