Julie was friendly and answered all our questions. She gave a great ceremony and we really enjoyed having her in our special day.

15 Mar 2022

My husband and I were married on the 15th of March at the botanical gardens rainforest gully. Julie was our celebrant and I cannot boast enough how much we loved working with her. She's super friendly, professional and is full of wonderful ideas, that made our day pure magic! Every meeting with Julie was easy going and she's so knowledgeable. I chose to do a joint package with Julie and Emily from eshphotography for $1800 but I paid a wee bit extra for the photography. Julie is an absolute champion! If you're getting married you're in the best hands with Julie, she has a true passion for her job ❤

Julie was AMAZING! The ceremony ran so smoothly and she just 'got' us. We had no idea what to do but Julie was all over it and made us feel so comfortable on the day. We got so many compliments from our guests through the night telling us how much they enjoyed Julie and the ceremony she put together. We couldn't have picked a better person to help us become Mr & MRS

Julie was the perfect celebrant for us. She got to know us as a couple and made sure that our ceremony reflected us. We couldn't have asked for a better person to marry us.

Julie is a wonderful, thoughtful celebrant and helped to make our day truly special. We had to rush to plan our wedding and hit lots of COVID-related and other speed-bumps along the way, and Julie was so helpful and flexible through the whole process. She fit in like one of the family on the day and thought of things we didn't (champagne to sip on during photos! scissors to cut off pesky threads on my wedding dress! how to get my cheeky three-year-old nephew to pose in the photos!). Honestly don't know what we would have done without Julie - cannot recommend her enough. Thank you, Julie, for making our day wonderful!

Julie is a beautiful, open person who genuinely cares about the couples she works with. We connected with her straight away and she put the most beautiful wedding ceremony together for us. We got to practice with her before the wedding which made us feel calmer and more confident on our wedding day. Julie guided us through everything with ease and it was great to have her as our celebrant.

To say we were happy with Julie is such an understatement. We are over the moon! From first point of contact Julie demonstrated such professionalism and ease of communication. Once we met her we soon realised just what a beautiful person she is. She has such authenticity and a beautiful calm about her. Julie's poetic delivery of our ceremony really touched hearts so much so that one of our guests had commented "she is the best celebrant I've ever seen and I've been to many weddings, you can see she is just beautiful inside and out" ...and this we would have to agree. On the day Julie was a great supporter, she even helped the guys get ready, interacted with our guests and got involved entertaining our kids, her wealth of experience is very much evident. We engaged a wedding vendor but ended up with a friend.

From the moment you meet Julie you will feel at ease. This lovely lady has the perfect balance of professionalism, fun and creativity and she will encourage and assist you to create a ceremony that truly does reflect the way you life and love. As stated by all the other fabulous and well deserved 5 star reviews this lady is the one you want as your celebrant.

Julie was fantastic! Even with the ever changing landscape brought on by the pandemic, she was always kind, courteous and flexible. If you're looking for someone who is quick to relate to, easy to have a laugh with and will make you're day as stress free as possible - she's your person!

Due to Bush Fires and COVID this was our fourth attempt to marry. I told Julie we didn't want anything big and she said it could be as simple as we liked. We already had a valid NOIM in place. Julie had us married in about eight days. Julie came to us and we married in our back yard. For an occasion that had already caused so much stress, our wedding wasn't just simple, it was special.

28 May 2021

We couldn't have made a better choice than to go with Julie. She clearly loves what she does, evidence by the thought, care and enthusiasm she brings to each meeting. She guided us through the event and made it so personal to us. I was a bucket of nerves and my husband was totally clueless about what to do before we met Julie. However, from the first meeting Julie gave us the feeling that it was all going to be okay. We wanted a small wedding that was deeply personal and a little bit quirky. She created the most perfect ceremony for us. There wasn't a dry eye in the audience. She helped my husband and I stay calm and happy during the night so we could focus on the love we felt for each other, our friends and our families. Thank you so much Julie!

Thank you so much Julie for being part of our special day and making it unforgettable. It was such a pleasure to work with you and it was so lovely how you made the whole process stress free and personal and created a very beautiful ceremony that was loved by all. I would highly recommend you and hope to see you again in the future. All the best, Aisling :)

Jules was amazing. We organised a short notice wedding (5 weeks) and Jules was on board with us straight away. She got straight back to us, helped us plan a small and intimate ceremony that was very much our style, and made us both feel super relaxed for what was the best day of both of our lives so far. She made it personal and fun, and we never felt there was an awkward moment. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect celebrant and couldn't recommend her more to anyone looking.

If there is one word that we can describe Julie as, it is phenomenal. From the moment we caught up with her via FaceTime (pandemic times call for digital measures!), to eventually being able to catch up with her face to face to iron out our vows, to the rehearsal the day before, and then finally the wedding day itself, she has been kind, professional, and yes - phenomenal. All of our guests loved her and her energy and the fun creativity that she brought. We feel so privileged to have had her as our celebrant. Julie - thank you so much for making our day so special! We recommend Julie for any couple that want an extremely memorable day in years to come.

Julie was amazing. She took the time to get to know us and find out what we wanted for the ceremony. She was understanding and comfortable. The day was perfect and her words were beautiful.
