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.

Julie listened carefully to what we wanted out of a ceremony, which was a relaxed feel and nothing formal. She was easy to communicate with and made sure our day was perfect.

Julie is the best, its obvious that she has a passion for her work and genuinely loves it! Our ceremony was exactly what we had hoped for. It was so personal and touching and everyone commented on how well the ceremony was written and how well she spoke. 5 starts is not enough for this amazing woman.

Julie was a fantastic celebrant and gave us a beautiful ceremony in April. She worked with what we wanted and gave us such wonderful confidence about what would happen on the day. Thanks Julie!

Julie was our stand in celebrant! Because our first celebrant lived in a different state Julie originally was helping us with our face to face interactions. When our original celebrant pulled out, Julie stepped in and took over. During our ceremony we had a threat of rain. She selectively cut things from the ceremony before it started raining down on us. She did a really great job. She was very supportive for us when our actual celebrant wasn't. I would definitely recommend her. She is a very unique woman as she just wants people to be happy! She wants to be there!

Julie was exactly what we were hoping for - really warm and professional and helpful, receptive to our requests while enhancing them with her own experience. Julie met with us multiple times leading up to the wedding, helping us coordinate from across the globe and organised the fast-track of our wedding certificate for a visa application. All audio was managed by Julie too - no crackly music or too-quiet vows. If it were up to us, we would have had the bare basics of a ceremony, but with Julie's encouragement and assistance, we turned it into something which was personalised and memorable for everyone. Can't recommend enough!

Julie was absolutely amazing. Our day wouldn't have been possible without her. She went above and beyond to help and guide us. Extremely easy going and easy to talk to and get along with. She really got to know us and what we wanted. Made our day so special and amazing. So happy and lucky that she was our celebrant.

Julie did a wonderful job both in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. She was calm, friendly, and knowledgeable. We could not be happier with how everything turned out. Everything took the perfect amount of time and we were able to fully absorb every moment.

Jules is an incredibly down to earth and professional celebrant. She is very approachable, easy to talk with, knowledgeable and importantly she possesses a fantastic sense of humour! She listened to what we wanted and prepared and delivered our ceremony perfectly. She provided a helpful and comprehensive service, including managing the entire process and submission for our Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDM) Certificate of Marriage. We had heard from several friends who got married around the same time as us that their celebrant didn’t guide them through the process of obtaining the BDM certificate. We all had no idea how to get the BDM Certificate, or that it was required to change our name. We thought the celebrant’s certificate given to us on the day of the wedding was it! We are grateful for Jules’s proactiveness, it saved us a lot of administrative hassle. She is the perfect marriage celebrant!

The highlight of our day was our ceremony. From the moment we met Julie we knew we'd found a kindred spirit who could make our moment even more magic than it would have already been. Our ceremony was so personal and so "us". Could not recommend her more highly than this. Absolute pleasure working with her from the start and she was so flexible with her time and professional with her suggestions. THANKS JULIE!!!!

Julie was an amazing marriage celebrant to have as part of our wedding. Julie was professional, fun and enthusiastic and allowed us to plan the ceremony that we wanted. We had numerous comments on how original and perfect our ceremony was. We even got 'best ceremony ever!' Thank you Julie!!

Jules was fantastic from the moment we met her. She quickly understood both of our expectations and was able to create a ceremony that ticked both our (mostly opposite) weird and wonderful requests. Jules was warm and engaging and was fantastic with my parents and 1 year old son.

Julie is AMAZING we could not of asked for a better celebrant. Julie is easy going, compassionate and very accommodating. We chose exactly how we wanted the ceremony to go with guidance from Julie. All of my guests commented on how personal Julie made the ceremony, I felt as though I had know Julie for years and that she knew all the things about us that we wanted to share with everyone on our day. Julie even asked what our colour theme was and dressed to match beautifully on the day. I've been to many wedding with marriage celebrants and can honestly say I would choose Julie over and over again.

Julie took care of everything for us, including organising paper work, providing inspiration and ideas for our ceremony and taking care of music on the day. Julie did a wonderful job with our ceremony and so many people commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was! We highly recommend her!

Julie Rattenbury  

Thank you Kara & Dave,It was beautiful day and I thouroughly enjoyed your ceremony,and all the times we met before to prepare. Your family and friends were so happy to be there with you, sharing your moment-we could all see/feel how happy you both were. How appropriate was your signing song?! "Here comes the Sun" by the Beatles. The rain freshened up the Rose Gardens and the sun beamed through -just for you. All the best, Jules

Jules really made our ceremony just the way we wanted it, and more. She was fantastic, could not recommend highly enough.

Julie Rattenbury  

Thank you Em & Andy, You are amazing individuals, and as a couple- unstoppable! What an amazing day was had by all 250 guests. The wet weather option at Long Gully Wines was to host the event in the distillery-even though not first choice- how perfect it was,we used a wine barrell as the signing table. Someone commented "that was like a Rock Star Wedding" and it was, you are Stars. You walked in to a live version of Kiss's "I was made for loving you baby" and Andy was standing there with the biggest smile that said " I am so ready for this, bring it on". That smile never left his face.

Spot on with all suggestions for our ceremony - it was great to have a celebrant that really understood us. On the day, she was fully present in the moment with us, and took care of the details and made sure everything ran perfectly.

Julie Rattenbury  

Thanks Mez & Mick, what a great couple you are. You put in so much effort and care into your day so that when it did arrive you knew you could relax and enjoy-and you did! Mez, you took Mick's breath away when you made your entrance-he was visibly moved & probably wondering why he waited 11 years!

Julie made our day magical! She is patient, with a lovely voice, is extremely organised, and also very friendly. Many guests commented on her wonderful ceremony. In a short amount of time she really captured who we are as a couple with her words. We highly recommend Julie!!

Julie Rattenbury  

Thank you Jen & Rick, AKA Jeanni and Chachi! It was an absolute pleasure to meet you both. We only met face-to-face the day before as you live in London, but I knew you were going to be a lot of fun-and so were the people you bought together. Thank you for showing me "The Bird Cage" at Nara Park. I have done many intimate ceremonies there since and couples love it. Best of luck, Jules X

Julie really loves what she does! Her honest, loving energy elevated us to having an unforgettable day.

Why yes I do! Thank you Annette & Chris, what a perfect day. The poem that Chris wrote just for you on your wedding day was a moment all their will never forget-big smiles through our tears-you lucky lady.Ceremonies are organic,I encourage couples to "own their day" so they come up with all these amazing and unique inclusions in their ceremony. Thank you for honouring your love the way it deserved to be. Annette you are a spunky lady everyday,but you took our breath away as you danced down the aisle. Love Jules
