Can you imagine your ceremony being the highlight of your big day?... Picture you and your loved ones relaxing, connecting, and being truly ‘present’ throughout this incredible moment in your life. Then contact me, and we’ll make it happen!

I am a Civil Marriage Celebrant in Brisbane, Australia, and have been marrying fabulous couples in beautiful, bespoke ceremonies for over 8 years.

Modern, hand-crafted ceremonies are my thing... I love to get to know my couples so I can write their unique ceremony from scratch, then deliver it as though we've known each other for years!

So whatever your vision for your perfect ceremony, whether it’s romantic, fun, small and intimate, grand and opulent, traditional or something completely off the wall, I can help you bring it to life in a meaningful, memorable way.

And, you’ll enjoy the whole process – I promise! I’m down-to-earth, friendly and love a laugh. I’m also highly professional, always attentive to detail, and when it comes to speaking before a crowd, my experience and confidence enable me to be relaxed and natural. 

I'd love to create and deliver a beautiful ceremony just for you - one that reflects you as a couple, captures your personalities and sense of humour, and celebrates the significance and joy of the occasion. I really believe you’ll see my passion for what I do shining through in your ceremony.

If you think I could be the right celebrant for you, contact me to arrange a chat, and we'll go from there!

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

We'd like to write our own vows, but don't really know where to start. Is this something you can help us with?

Absolutely! I've got your back on this one. I can provide whatever level of support you need to make this labour of love less 'labour' and more 'love'! 

To help get the creativity flowing, I provide lots of examples of vows to flick through. If you wish, you can cherry-pick your favourite bits. 

I also give my couples a simple set of 'vow-writing' questions, with a suggestion that you find a quiet corner to yourself, and start jotting down any random thoughts that pop into your head for each question. Before you know it, you'll have an amazing little collection (or perhaps a big collection!) of personal, meaningful material, with some real gems that will make your vows a knock-out!

From there, you can either have a go at turning all your ideas into vows, or - if that feels a bit daunting - simply hand it all over to me, and I'll weave your own words into beautiful, flowing vows that marry well (forgive the pun) with the length and tone of your partner's vows.

And hey, don't put too much pressure on yourself - this isn't an exam to be passed. 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.

 

Do we need to do a rehearsal? Our attendants won't all be in town until just before the wedding.

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!

Can we play music through your system?

Absolutely! I can download your playlist on my mini tablet and control the music as I do the ceremony. Alternatively, we can pair your bluetooth device with my PA system (or plug it in via a cable, which I carry with me), or go old-school with a CD (if that’s how you love your music), and have an assistant cue the tracks. My PA system is rechargeable and fully portable, so we don’t need a power point.

Lorraine first caught our attention when we could hear her clearly over the noise of a wedding expo, and her explanation of the service she provided made us confident that she would give us a very unique service. The useful questions and materials she uses helped us, and her, pick out what was special to us in the relationship, and she made the most of what we gave. When COVID19 threw our plans away, Lorraine was on board with our back-up ceremony, and gave great advice on planning how we could still make the event special with almost nobody present, and without the pageantry. On the day, she took last-minute changes, disruptions and disasters in her stride, and did her best to keep an entirely addled bride and groom on track, while still keeping our few guests involved. While we don't remember too much of it that wasn't about each

❤️❤️ Thank you, Evelyn & Mark. It was such a pleasure helping you make your intimate wedding very special. You were both such good sports, taking all the changes and restrictions in your stride. I’m looking forward to your vow renewal and big celebration next year!! Cheers, Lorraine

Lorraine was amazing throughout the whole process. We had been planning our wedding ceremony for the last year and Lorraine was so helpful with all our silly questions especially all the legal documentation required. She made it extremely personable and was so detailed in the little things about our love story. Even through the recent COVID19 situation, Lorraine was more than happy to accommodate to all our sudden changes and was always very quick to reply and update according to our plans. We are so happy to have Lorraine be present for our big celebrations and vow renewal ceremony next year once everything is cleared up. We wouldn't have chosen anyone else and we highly recommend her to be a part of your wonderful day as she will make it the most amazing ceremony and day ever.

Thank you so much, D&K - it was so much fun being there with you throughout the journey. And you were both total stars on your big day!! Looking forward to seeing you again for your fabulous Vow Renewal :) Take care, beautiful people! Cheers, Lorraine

I could not recommend Lorraine highly enough. She brought the perfect amount of warmth, professionalism and direction to our wedding day. In the lead up, she took the time to genuinely get to know us through the use of her well planned questionnaires, and resources along with face to face / phone conversations. This connection resulted in a really natural ceremony that was bang on what we were after. Lorraine is an excellent writer, and in addition to bringing together a well considered ceremony, she also helped my husband and I to edit our vows and make sure that they matched in terms of general tone and length so we could keep them as a surprise for the big day.

Shannon and Peter, thank you so, so much. With two (make that three! I mustn’t leave out your little man!) beautiful people and one gorgeous love story, your wedding was ALWAYS going to be brilliant, regardless of what the world threw your way. I’m going to be smiling all day, thinking back on it. Can’t wait to see you all again to celebrate your marriage with your family and friends around you. Xx
