We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have found Julie to be our celebrant. Throughout the process she was attentive, thoughtful and completely focused on what we wanted as a couple. Well before our wedding Julie made herself available to answer questions and checked in with us to see how we were going with our plans; something that really meant a lot to us. When COVID-19 happened we were understandably upset to learn none of our family or friends could celebrate with us. It was because of Julie that we decided to proceed with the ceremony, knowing that we could still celebrate us in our own way. Julie was incredibly caring and made every effort to make the day as special as possible, really focusing the ceremony around who we are, what we loved most and making us laugh along the way. More than anything, if we were to sum Julie up in one word it would be sincere. She is sincere in everything that she does, from the first meeting to the big day. Thank you Julie!

From the first moment we met Julie she was amazing. She took time to get to know us as a couple, provided a highly personalised and warm ceremony, with many of our guests commenting it was the best they'd been to. She helped with logistics, music, provided a detailed compendium of ideas to assist with vowels and planning the day. The legal side and paper work was taken care of quickly and efficiently too. Most of all Julie is a kind and caring person who loves weddings and will deliver a highly personalised and thoughtful ceremony. Our wedding would not have been the same without her!!!

Julie is such a warm, genuine soul who creates an atmosphere of calm & love - with a healthy dose of humour! Julie fitted in with us perfectly and felt like a family friend we had known for years.

We are so very pleased we chose Julie to be our wedding celebrant. She really did make everything so easy, while guiding us through designing our perfect wedding ceremony. She was always available to us for any questions we had and offered valuable advice on things that we hadn’t even thought of. It was great to spend the time with her the day before our wedding to rehearse how the day would go, which made us feel at ease, knowing Julie understood our expectations. She is a lovely, confident lady who speaks very well and holds the ability to command a room with ease and warmth.

Julie is a lovely person and experienced celebrant. She was very helpful and provided lots of useful info to help us develop the ceremony. At the rehearsal she also provided many useful tips to help the flow of the ceremony and create beautiful pictures. On the day, she dealt with the interruptions of children throughout the ceremony very well. Highly recommend Julie.

Julie is such an amazing woman. She worked with my husband and I to create a custom ceremony including a ring exchange and a handfasting. She was always available to chat, and updated us at each step of the process. She was a wonderful celebrant.

Really good!! She was very flexible, listened to what we wanted and was accommodating with meetings. She even organised a run through the day before which put our nerves at ease.

29 Sep 2018

Jules was a phenomenal celebrant. She guided us through the entire process and was extremely kind, warm and funny. We weren’t really sure what we wanted out of the ceremony so she went through some options with us and gave us a questionnaire to complete. She wrote a beautiful ceremony using our answers that was funny, personal and touching. I cannot recommend Jules enough.
