Hello I am Lorraine Ellis, owner of Get Married in New York. Originally from the UK I worked for a major tour operator as their local wedding planner. I established Get Married in New York following a successful wedding planning company in Orlando, Florida which I launched in 2002, which quickly became a leading Wedding Company in Florida. Having established a highly successful blueprint for destination weddings, I then expanded my operation to New York where I knew that a lot of UK brides also visited. I identified a gap in the market for couples to work directly with the very best local companies across New York.
I have a great level of understanding on what destination brides are looking for in their wedding day. I also ensure that the wedding day reflects your wedding vision.
Most of my communication with you will be via e mail, since the time difference can be challenging to coordinate. I am also happy to do Facetime with you.
Get Married in New York is part of Get Married in Florida - an LLC Company, registered in the State of Florida & State of Virginia.
We are one of New York’s most established, reliable and trusted premier Destination Wedding companies. As a small wedding company we can offer a very personlized service, advise and guidance for couples wishing to get married in Central Park, New York.
Our knowledgeable New York team offers a warm, intimate and personalized wedding ceremony - from Traditional and Classic to Love and Laughter. Our team will make you feel comfortable and relaxed on your wedding day.
We have married over 1,000 the past 16 years.
The Wedding Day
Relax is not usually a word that couples associate with their wedding Day, but that is exactly what I ask you to do. Leave the, who, what, where and why's to us and enjoy your once in a lifetime day!
On arrival at the venue, all you need to worry about is you and your guests being ready to enjoy the day. Your locally based wedding team will be there before and throughout your wedding ceremony.
Central Park Wedding Officiant
I work with a couple of wedding officiants who have been doing weddings for many years. They are very personalable and write very personliased wedding ceremonies. Your officiant will be responsible to mail the license back to City Hall for recording.
Central Park Wedding Photographer
I work with a couple of wedding photographers who know Central Park and Manhattan very well and know the best places for your wedding photographs to be taken. They will provide you with an email link to view and print off your images following your wedding ceremony. The photography in our packages is just for Central Park but you can add extra time and other locations to this package - ie Time Square, Empire State, Grand Central Station.
Central Park Wedding Florist
Your wedding flowers will be delivered directly to your accommodation, ready for you to bring with you to the wedding.
Central Park Wedding Ceremony
The ceremony is approximately 10 - 15 minutes in length followed by photography (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.
