Originally from the UK, Lorraine Ellis 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.
Established in 2002, Get Married in Florida provide a dedicated service to all clients from beginning to end. We also represent some of the largest Tour Operators and independent wedding companies in the UK.
From your initial enquiry and questions we can guide you to the best location based on your size and what you are looking for in a wedding. We have preset wedding packages which we have found are a great starting point for any couple. You then have the choice to add any extras onto your wedding booking that you would like- ie cake, rustic touches.
We work with you thru e mail - we have found this the most effective way due to time differences. We do pride ourselves on our efficient website that allows your enquiry to go directly to our wedding locations so you get a quicker response time than most of our competitors.
We then send you a link that allows you to pay your wedding deposit online via a credit card. We like using credit cards as this gives you as the customer an insurance on your money.
Once you pay you initial deposit we then send you a confirmation for your records and a online link back to your booking to add on any extras you would like.
We can answer any questions that you have and help source supplies for your wedding.
Up until 60 days prior to your wedding you can add on extras for your wedding. After this time we are busy booking everything for your special day and getting a timeline ready for you.
30 days before the wedding you will get a link to make the final balance and a link to ask for your arrival information and asking more details about your wedding party. This helps us to know how you wish your ceremony to run.
Once we have all your information we will send you a welcome letter that will detail all the services you have booked, the name of the person providing that service and a timeline so you can plan your arrival at you wedding venue
Upon arrival into Orlando we will call you and see if you have any last minute questions and then pass all the information to our local team, ready for your wedding day.
Our aim at get married in Florida is to leave you free to enjoy your time in Orlando and leave us to organize everything for you. I know it is hard to hand everything over to someone else to arrange but we have a great formula and a group of amazing vendors that I am proud to have worked with for 16 years and many I now consider my friends and know they go the extra mile for my couples.
The Wedding Day
Relax is not usually a word that couples associate with their wedding Day, but that is exactly what we ask you to do. Leave the, who, what, where and whys to us and enjoy this once in a lifetime day!
On arrival at the venue, all you need to worry about is that you and your guests are ready to enjoy the day. Your wedding team will be on hand to ensure your days runs smoothly.
Your Wedding coordinator along with the officiate, photographer and other services booked will meet the groom and guests in the lobby/main entrance of your wedding location 30 minutes prior to the wedding time at which time all necessary paperwork will be distributed and flowers presented. The Bride and her party are requested to arrive 15 minutes before the wedding.
The ceremony is approximately 10 - 15 minutes in length followed by photography and a brief cake and champagne toast (if booked). The event will last approx 1 hour from beginning to end.
Lorraine founded Get Married in Florida in 2002. She identified a gap in the market for UK couples to work directly with Orlando based companies in organising their wedding. Lorraine is now recognised as the top wedding planner for destination weddings in Orlando.
Linda will be there on the day to ensure "It’s a day to remember." Let us worry about the arrangements. All you have to do is show up!
