We loved having Julie as our celebrant for our wedding in October 2016. Julie made it a relaxed and simple process from the first time we met, and was wonderful to work with. She allowed us plenty of input into the planning of the ceremony, as well as guidance into what works well. Our service was exactly as we had hoped!

Hi Julie,
Kym & I want to thank you for our beautiful day made special by you.
We were extremely happy with your professionalism  & warm way you delivered our ceremony, we had a lot of comments from guests.

Thanks again for a beautiful day.
Andrea & Kym

With only two months between the ‘will you marry me’ and the ‘I do’, we threw our wedding together in quick time! Julie came to the rescue, not only taking care of the legalities, but giving us the inspiration to create our beautiful and meaningful vows, and helping us enormously with the structure and flow of the entire ceremony which, may we add, she delivered with great style and humour … We had a wonderful day and couldn’t have pulled it off without her. Thank you so much Julie !!
Danielle and Anthony

Again, a huge THANK YOU for everything Julie.

We wanted to send you a note (and our first official photo) and say thank you for helping us to create a beautiful, personalised and very special wedding ceremony.
Your words and delivery were perfect! And we are so happy that you played such an integral part in our wedding.

Dear Julie
Frank and I both want to thank you for making our wedding day relaxed, entertaining and so special.
You’re personal and professional approach made us feel very comfortable as being the centre of everyones attention. We greatly appreciated your accommodation of our very personalised ceremony, which included the recognition of those present and those who could not attend due to the tyranny of distance or that they have passed. You made everyone at the ceremony feel included which further enhanced the day.
Thank you so very much
Love
Kathy & Frank

Thank you Julie for performing a wonderful ceremony on an absolutely beautiful day.
Thanks again
Regards
Frank & Sherylee

People often talk about their wedding being the best day of their lives; to be honest it really was the best day of our lives. We were probably more casual then we should have been regarding the finer details in the days leading up to the wedding but you really took charge where necessary to ensure all necessary plans were stowed away by the big day.
Much of the family were from traditional and religious backgrounds and we were concerned about how they would receive our garden wedding, free of heavy religious talk and cathedrals. I am pleased to say that your delivery as celebrant converted everybody into instant raving fans.
Thank you for everything.
James & Bernadette

Dear Julie,

A precious memory that will be in our hearts forever, we will recommend your services to our friends.
Thank you so much.
