Meet: Lorraine Simpson, Brit-born, professional destination luxury travel planner par excellence. " Well respected in the industry having won many awards and regularly quoted not only in print but appears regularly on the highly respected Cityline TV as their Travel Expert. " Her crack team at Toronto’s The Wedding Holiday TM (TWH) have been staging nuptials in “to die-for” locales for over fifteen years. Having orchestrated 1500 plus, her firm is one of North America’s first specialists in destination weddings. Lorraine is a warm, vivacious big TV-character. As a perfectionist and workaholic she is known for her “big reactions to small things”. Her “kick-ass” approach with tour operators and suppliers is legendary. She doesn’t suffer fools lightly. They know not to incur her wrath." Her “family” has endured many many meltdowns where she is under the gun with too many things on the go. Her suitcase often doesn't even get emptied before she's back on the road again ready for another trip either speaking at a conference, teaching or planning some celebrity wedding in a far off location. -- Lorraine is a creative miracle worker who can handle just about anything including “brides” who turn into “bridezillas”! Now in her 50's Lorraine has to often bite her tongue as she smiles sweetly at the young bridezillas while her long suffering partner Keith has to pick up the pieces behind the scenes and calm her down. All in, her destination weddings are up to 60% less expensive than a traditional wedding. "
A lively half-hour doc series, each week The Destination W edding Diva sees Lorraine & Co. devise, organize and pull off romantic destination weddings! Entertaining in the extreme... our cameras document the action as our protagonist and her gang guide anxious Brides seeking perfection; Grooms, often like “deer-caught-in head-lights”; a Wedding party chock-a-block with interesting personalities e.g. maid-of- honour, mother, future mother-in-law; guests who’ve come from a-far often with misgivings and at their own expense; etc. ... all expecting an unforgettable celebration. " Lorraine relies on her sidekick Paula to be like Robin to her Batman while she babysits the brides but really underneath it all they all babysit Lorraine as she is the biggest DIVA!
Lorraine's second project is far more up her alley as it is just her swanning around the world getting up to no good and causing a ruckus everywhere she goes. Enter Keith again who brings up the rear on the group trips and takes care of our Protagonist Diva as she takes risks more than he would like and certainly finds some amazingly interesting things to see along the way. Her guests are often chefs like Celebrity Chef Massimo Capra and Chef Noroor from Thailand but she also loves to visit the Countess of Knowsley as well as her other wonderful connections around the world.
