Comments on PEI Marriage Commissioner Lorraine Begley

  • Lorraine was the best guide for us to plan our wedding celebration. She was very attentive in asking about our ideas and vision, and was able to take the jumble of thoughts we had and lay it out into a beautiful ceremony. We appreciated the resources Lorraine sent us to generate ideas, and her calming presence in planning meetings as well as the wedding day itself. Thank you …of course for all the work you did for us. It was a beautiful day and we're still talking about it with each other and our family and friends. We tried hard to think of any suggestions we had to improve, but couldn't come up with any. The ceremony and planning it with you was easy and stress-free, which was our main goal. Looking back on the day both [Partner} and I see the ceremony itself as our biggest highlight. Thank you for making that happen.

  • Our friends and family reacted as we suspected they would....happy for us but surprised they had no idea what we had planned. I guess we are good at keeping secrets. We enjoyed our wedding ceremony immensely as it was just what we wanted. Thank you for understanding our idea of low key and simple. It was just what we had expected. You created a perfect ceremony for us to remember. 

  • Lorraine thank you so much for all your help with the ceremony. It is really thanks to our meeting with you

    that our ceremony went so well. It was exactly what we wanted and we were so grateful for your help!

  • Everything was perfect. Our expectations were exceeded…It was really important to me to have someone who was inclusive as our commissioner. One of my biggest fears was that we were going to end up with a close-minded, homophobic, commissioner and I wouldn’t know it until after the wedding. Lorraine was HIGHLY recommended as LGBTQ+ friendly (not even just friendly, supportive) and open to people of all backgrounds and having that reassurance from other people allowed me to relax and know that we were being taken care of by a good person. She was also able to accommodate my accessibility needs. We were also very thankful for the recommendations for ceremony and reception venues. They met our needs perfectly.

  • Thank you very much for officiating our special day. The ceremony was just what we hoped for: intimate and personal (with just a bit of quirky). We appreciate how you helped us along the way. Even our guests commented on how personal and beautiful the ceremony was.

  • Lorraine, we just wanted to say thank you so very much for making our day so special! The service was more beautiful than either of us could have imagined.

  • Our wedding service and marriage commissioner was perfect. The entire service was amazing. Lorraine captured us perfectly. She did a great job of making us feel special and like the day was truly about us. We loved how unique our service was.

  • Many, many thanks for making our wedding day so special. We were lucky to have found you. Thank you for all of your hard work and attention to detail. We both appreciate it very much! We feel special and blessed today. We are steady and calm. Thank you for being a part of our calm.

You did such an amazing job and were such a pleasure to work with! You have our vote for the best wedding commissioner!

  • Lorraine gave us the perfect balance of guidance and freedom. Developing our ceremony with her was not only enriching but also fun, and the outcome was a ceremony that was touching, wise, funny, and very much ours. We will of course never forget that day. Our friends don't ever stop talking about the wedding and how beautiful and personal it was - many say it was the best they've ever been to.

  • We have been talking about how perfect our wedding day was, and how you helped make it so. Thank you so much for your guidance along the way. Your patience with us, our loved ones and our dog was much appreciated. Everyone was touched by the ceremony, and we still get teary when we talk about some parts. Parents, friends, family commented on how professional you were, how your presence fit the scene impeccably. In short, it was wonderful, wonderful day. We are so happy that you could be there with us.

  • Thank you for making this day in our lives very special. The wedding ceremony is just what we want and says all that is important to us. It has been a pleasure working with you as we have ironed out the details and made the ceremony special for us. With thanks.

  • I do appreciate all of your suggestions … Lorraine as you have done an amazing job to make things come together that I had no idea existed! It really is turning out to represent [us] perfectly!

  • We are very glad you were the person we chose to perform our marriage ceremony. Thank you for the care and focus you brought to our special day.

  • We can’t thank you enough for officiating at our wedding. Many of our guests said it was one of the nicest ceremonies they’d ever been to—that’s mainly thanks your help and guidance though the process. It really was a magical ceremony—just perfect. And so “us”.

  • We were extremely happy with the wedding services (despite how nervous we were to start). The best thing about Lorraine is that she had such a variety of readings, and ceremony elements to choose from. It was very easy for us to find exactly what we wanted with her help! We were especially pleased with the hand fasting part of the services and appreciated that the services were relaxed. Lorraine was very caring and helped us along easily if we made a mistake. 

  • Lorraine provided us with everything and more to make the ceremony our own. She helped it reflect our relationship, and kept us organized in every way she could. She went above our expectations providing us with plenty of resources to make our day special. Everyone loved how unique the ceremony was to us. We also appreciated how Lorraine had alternative suggestions to our sometimes vague ideas of how the ceremony itself should go…We highly recommend! 

  • The entire service was amazing. Lorraine captured us perfectly. She did a great job at making us feel special and like the day was truly about us. We loved how unique our service was....The service was more beautiful than either of us could have imagined.
