I am a creative, warm and highly professional marriage celebrant and MC. I love connecting with my couples and their guests to make each and every wedding unique, engaging, uplifting and truly memorable. My career path has been diverse, including post-grad university education and more than a decade of corporate management experience in a ‘former life’, but my career as a marriage celebrant is the one I was born to do!

Absolutely! I've got your back on this one. I can provide whatever level of support you need to make your vows really pop. You'll feel proud to say them, and your partner will feel loved and incredibly special hearing them. 

I've created a tool that will make the process easy and stress-free for you... my Vow-Writing 'Cheat Sheet'.

Here's how it works... you read the questions and prompts (or 'sentence starters'), then simply jot down whatever comes to mind. Before you know it, you'll have put together an amazing collection of personal, meaningful material that will work perfectly in your vows.

From there, you can send me your rough ideas, and I'll weave your own words into authentic vows that reflect you, and marry well (forgive the pun) with the length and tone of your partner's vows. We can make them as heartfelt and funny as you wish.

And if you genuinely don't have time for this simple process, I can help with ready-to-go examples, or with fully ghost-written vows. 

The main thing is, don't put too much pressure on yourself. This isn't an exam to be passed. It's a moment to be lived and enjoyed. However we get there, as long as your vows express what you really want to say to your partner in this important moment, that's what counts.


First up, let me say - whatever your situation, we will make it work seamlessly. I'll 'lead you by the hand' through your whole ceremony.

Of course, getting the gang together for a rehearsal beforehand is the optimal way to go, as it will give you a much better sense of how it will look and feel on the day. It will allow you to make the best choices for positioning (the 'stagecraft', if you like) and enable your team to practice, adding an extra level of 'polish' - something you'll particularly appreciate if you have videography on your big day.

If you just can't bring all of your wedding party together in the lead up to the ceremony, we'll simply work with what (or who!) we've got. I will fully brief you on all the options, and we can practice your key parts, then I will guide you all through everything on the day.

If you're getting married outdoors. I definitely recommend visiting your ceremony spot at the same time of day (and close to your wedding date) if you can manage it. This will give you the best indication of where the sun is going to be, so you can avoid having the sun beaming directly into the faces of either the wedding party or your guests. You can also make sure your set up won't place the wedding party in dappled light (part sun, part shade) - that wreaks havoc with photos! And the visit will also let you know if you need to consider other creature comforts, like mossie repellent!

Absolutely! I can download your playlist on my mini tablet and control the music as I do the ceremony. My high quality Bose PA system is rechargeable and fully portable, so we don’t need a power point.

I think the golden window for a civil marriage ceremony (in front of guests) is around 20 to 25 minutes, from the moment you walk down the aisle, to the moment I introduce you as Newlyweds.

Anything shorter will feel too quick, and may diminish the significance of the occasion, while anything much longer than 30 minutes can start to feel like it's dragging on unnecessarily. Just like when Goldilocks tried Baby Bear's bowl of porridge, we want your ceremony to feel "just right".

That said, I always recommend allocating an extra 15 minutes for the ceremony in your run sheet if you can, to allow for contingencies. If something unexpected crops up - such as an ill-timed shower of rain, or a VIP guest running late, we can move the start time slightly without upsetting your entire day plan. And if everything is going swimmingly, awesome! You can enjoy those extra 15 minutes hugging and chatting with your guests after the ceremony.

If you're eloping, that's a different kettle of fish... your ceremony is likely to be more like 10-15 minutes.

And if you've chosen to do a 'legals only' marriage with no ceremony at all, that can be accomplished in about 2 minutes.

Yes, you need to complete a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM), have it duly witnessed, and lodge it with your Marriage Celebrant at least one calendar month (but not more than 18 months) before the date of the wedding.

I usually witness the NOIM for my clients at our Planning Meeting. However, if we can't get together in person, there are other prescribed authorities who can witness it, (then you simply need to send it to your celebrant within the correct timeframe.)

  • If you are in Australia when completing the form, suitable witnesses include: an Authorised Marriage Celebrant, Justice of the Peace, Commissioner for Declarations, a Barrister or Solicitor, a Medical Doctor, or Police Officer.

  • If you are overseas when completing the NOIM, you must sign it in the presence of an Australian Diplomatic or Consular Officer; a Notary Public, an employee of the Commonwealth authorised under paragraph 3(c) of the Consular Fees Act 1955; oremployee of the Australian Trade and Investment Commission authorised under paragraph 3(d) of the Consular Fees Act 1955.
  • I generally recommend that my international clients make an appointment for Notarial Services at their nearest Australian consulate or high commission, or find a conveniently located Notary Public)

There are some additional documents you'll have to show your Celebrant before the ceremony takes place:

  • Photographic identification, and evidence of where and when you were born. (Your passport will suffice, or your birth certificate along with a drivers licence or other photographic ID.)
  • If you have been married before: evidence of how your most recent marriage ended (for example, divorce certificate; death certificate.)
  • If any of your primary documents are in another language, you will also need to provide an English copy, translated by a NAATI-accredited translator.

If you have any questions about these requirements, please feel free to ask.

We loved Lorraine's style as soon as we met her, and we were thrilled to have her officiate at our wedding. Lorraine was key to setting up the surprise for all our guests, and her suggestions about the structure of the event were perfect. The best part by far was the personalisation of the ceremony to suit us - every guest would have believed Lorraine has known us for many many years. Absolutely highly recommended.

Russell and Tracy, thank you so much for having me on your wedding team. What a blast! It was so much fun, surprising your family and friends with your wedding! Just brilliant. I wish you both all the best for healthy and happiness. Much love, Lorraine

October 2023

If i could give Lorraine a 10 star rating I would. Lorraine was truly amazing from the start. Lorraine went above and beyond to make our wedding so special. Everything was so easy, if we had a question in the lead up Lorraine was there to help us out. Lorraine took care of all the paperwork and offered suggestion and ideas when we got stuck. It was amazing the work that Lorraine put in to make our ceremony so amazing even producing little booklets for each of us with our vows written in and even throwing Covid in the mix Lorraine was always there with support and advice. There is absolutely nothing "Cookie Cutter" about Lorraine and the service she offers, everything was tailored to us and our vision and dreams for the day. On the day Lorraine was beyond amazing. Thanks Lorraine!!!!!! 10 stars

Thank you so, so much for your beautiful words, Dave and Sam. I'm so happy for you that your day went so perfectly well. What a brilliant wedding! (As soon as I learned all about your love story, I knew it was going to be a fabulous ceremony!) Thank you for introducing me to such a hidden gem of a venue, too. I hope you had a lovely break afterwards, and brought home loads of incredible new memories to enjoy. Thank you again, and best wishes for happiness always. Love, Lorraine

It was an absolute privilege to have Lorraine as our celebrant for our wedding ceremony. Lorraine was professional, warm, and friendly and made everyone at our wedding feel comfortable and at ease. We were so grateful for Lorraine's support and guidance at every step of our journey and made good use of her tips and tricks and how-to resources, particularly when writing our vows and finalising our music. Lorraine has a beautiful way with words and was able to turn our thoughts, feelings and memories into a heartfelt ceremony enjoyed by all. A wonderful celebrant!

November 2023

Liz and I were pretty nervous about having a wedding ceremony in front of a big crowd of family/friends (we were considering eloping), and Lorraine was the ultimate reassuring presence for the two of us both in preparation and during the ceremony. All our guests mentioned how lovely the ceremony was and commented on how great Lorraine was as our celebrant. Highly recommend!

Gerard F.

Lorraine Wright - The Wright Celebrant

Thank you so much for your lovely words, Ged and Liz. What a beautiful wedding! You both looked so happy and ‘in the moment’… no nervousness to be seen! It was such an honour to be there with you. Thank you again for having me. All the best for a fabulous future! Cheers, Lorraine

October 2023

Lorraine was everything we could have asked for and more in a celebrant! Lorraine was incredibly polished and was immaculately presented. Lorraine was very organised and had great attention to detail, even asking what the wedding party were wearing (including MOB and MOG) to ensure her outfit was well suited to colour schemes, without clashing. Lorraine was very responsive which was comforting with the stress of all the other aspects of a wedding and this really provided reassurance that you know you could leave things in Lorraine’s more than capable hands! Lorraine attended our rehearsal and had great patience with going through the different options and made suggestions that suited us and really thought of everything down to the little details to ensure everything ran smoothly. Lorraine provided her guide and vow cheat sheet that had loads of suggestions of quotes and readings, but will also find others to suit!

Lorraine Wright - The Wright Celebrant

Thank you so much for these beautiful words, Charlotte and Jesse. (You’ve done the most incredible job of capturing exactly what I do… Thank you.) It was such a pleasure meeting you and working with you to create your stunning wedding. I wish you all good things for a wonderful married life together. Big hugs, Lorraine

Can I request my celebrant to wear a certain colour or outfit?

I've seen some awful clashing outfits and celebrants in white etc... is it rude to ask them to wear a particular colour or style? I don't know if I'm taking it way too far haha. But I want everything to look good! It is my wedding day, after all :)

Lorraine Wright - The Wright Celebrant

Hi Keira,

It's absolutely understandable for you to want to have input into what your celebrant wears to your wedding ceremony.

I always ask every couple about their dress code for the wedding, the colours the bridal party will be wearing, the colour of flower bouquets and any theming etc, and whether there are any colours they absolutely don't want me to wear (for cultural or any other reasons), to be sure my outfit is in harmony with the overall wedding. As a courtesy, I also ask about the colours to be worn by the mothers of the bride and groom, so there is no chance of wearing the same colour and giving them a moment of embarrassment or discomfort.

I think this should be part of any wedding planning discussion between a couple and their celebrant.

I hope this helps!

Warm regards,

Lorraine Wright
