I love what I get to call a job...
I feel extremely privileged to be part of the celebrations of life's special moments. Along with the privilege, comes great responsibility and I take both very seriously.
That said, you may well notice that there is a lot of laughter in the photos of my ceremonies, and laughter is often mentioned in the reviews that couples and families have written.
Nothing is ever mandatory in any of the ceremonies that I conduct (not even laughter). But I do seem to attract a lot of amazing, fun-loving, people who want their personality, hopes and dreams to be reflected, and included, within their ceremony (which I love to help make happen). There are also, almost always, tears of pure joy, often when one or more of the guests is taking part in the ceremony, or during the vows or promises (which I really REALLY love too)
A few kind words from people, about their Liverpool Celebrant Ceremony...
Betty & Ged
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

Genevieve & Matt
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

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.

Julieanne & Derryn
We live in Australia but got married in Liverpool, UK, at the Hope Street Hotel, Liverpool, in December 2018.
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!

Lorraine was the best celebrant we could have ever asked for!
We got married at Knowsley Hall in June 2019 and it was the most magical day.
I am Mexican-American and my husband is English so we wanted to honour
both of our cultures and traditions.
The ceremony was so unique to us.
We met with Lorraine a few times before the wedding to go over the different traditions we wanted to incorporate and to get an idea of what we wanted to say as our promises/vows.
Her attention to detail and kindness really was what made our ceremony so special because she tied everything in so perfectly.
There was not a dry eye in the room!
Thank you so much for creating the most beautiful ceremony and one that we will all remember forever.

Gill & Sharon
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 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.
(Venue: Holland Hall, Upholland)
I would love to hear your story and create the perfect ceremony for you.

Katie & Denis
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.
(Venue: Tyn Dwr Hall, Llangollen)
Amy & Graham
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.
(Venue: Rowton Hall, Chester)
Nikki & Philip
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

Mandy & Gordon
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
(Venue: at home, Wirral)
Kate & Daniel
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!

Mia & Wayne
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.
She also honoured our day with a red string with star bracelet, this represented our wishes 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 from Perth, Western Australia

Michelle & James
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

Sally & Brian
We had the absolute pleasure of using the Services of Lorraine Hull as our celebrant.
Our wedding was amazing! Lorraine took the time out to really get to know us and to help us realise the vision we had for our day.
We were able to personalise our day completely.
From the memory candle we lit for loved ones no longer with us, to the hand fastening with ribbons placed over our hands by friends and family - we really felt we were able to include everybody in the blending of our families.
Our little 7 year old boy was star of the show, and Lorraine made him feel very much part of the day.
He had some some very special jobs during the ceremony!
All my guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.
If you are looking for someone to create a day you will never forget, Lorraine can make your dreams come true.
She is a credit to her profession and to Liverpool.
Thankyou so much Lorraine for giving us the day we always wanted - Sally & Brian Middleton (high five from Zach 😊) xx

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

Victoria & Nilesh
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 in 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!
(Venue: Holiday Inn, Bolton, Lancashire)
Sarah & Laura
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
(Venue: Kings Acre, Saughall, Cheshire)
Nerida & Howard
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.

Steph & Keith
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
(Venue: Inglenook Farm, Rainford)
Phil & Ellie
Ellie and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you.

It was an absolutely pleasure working with you, and thank you for making our ceremony so memorable.
