Originally from the UK, Lorraine has a first-hand understanding of what couples from the UK expect when planning a wedding or elopement abroad. Lorraine worked in the Travel Industry before moving into weddings with First Choice Holidays in 2001.
Lorraine started Get Married in Florida in 2002 to assist UK Brides and Grooms with arranging an overseas wedding in Orlando, Florida. She identified a gap in the market for couples to work directly with Orlando based companies in organising their wedding.
