Online Comedy Writing Workshop for Celebrants

yep, I want in!

It's time to transform your celebrancy business and take your clients on a fun-filled adventure

Creative Celebrant Mentoring to take your business from zero to hero 

This is a game changing opportunity that will see you level-up and become the celebrant you were meant to be.

After 8 years in the wedding industry and a whole lot of lessons learned, I'm so thankful to be able to share all my secrets with you.

You are in the right place if you want to:
 Tidy up the back end of your business
 Attract your ideal type of client
 Become an expert at filling your diary with bookings
 Receive consistently amazing client testimonials
 Maintain balance in your life


Right now a lack of confidence is your archenemy and time (the lack of!) is taunting you.

For heart-led humans wanting to thrive in business but...

I design individualised programs that meet your needs, tailored to where you are RIGHT NOW in your celebrant journey.

I’ll meet you where you are at…... at whatever hurdles you are facing;
I’ve lived it and I have the solution.

I am ready to share everything. With my holistic approach to mentoring, nothing is off limits as we look at every step in your service.

We will celebrate the things you are excelling at and
refine the elements needed to make your celebrant career soar.  
It might not be what you think because sometimes you don't know what you don't know!



Me! Your biz BFF guiding you to a place where fears are conquered and creativity reigns

I've got the magic your biz has been begging for – fairy dust included.



You know how to write a ceremony but what about the practical business steps to becoming a celebrant success story?

I’m proof that success and steady growth is possible….going full time is not just a dream but a reality you can achieve.

I’ve been where you are… starting out as a celebrant is tough but in just two years, I grew my business to the point that I was able to give up my day job and become a full-time fully-booked celebrant.

I know what it takes to be successful and sustain it.


So your goal is to become a successful celebrant but you’re not sure how to make it a reality?

Meet your Mentor

Learn the techniques professionals use to write consistently funny material.

You’ll learn how to extract the gold from your couples’ questionnaires, stretch funny situations and make them funnier, and hone your ceremony delivery for maximum punch.

In this face-to-face workshop, comedian Eddy Rockefeller and Celebrant Julie Muir will pull back the curtain and teach you how!


Contrary to popular belief, being funny is not a magical gift a few special people are born with. It’s a skill anyone can develop.

🧠 A brain full of ideas⁠
🧡 A heart full of passion⁠

After working together, she had:
💃 Dancing feet to celebrate the wins⁠
👎 Thick skin to cope with the lows⁠
🙏 A stomach for trusting her gut⁠

I'll let her tell you all about it herself!




Straight from the horse's mouth

sealed by step - review

Why do I choose to mentor you?

I’m a cheerleader at heart. I believe in community over competition. I want us all to rise together because there is room for everyone and I want to help you find your voice and support you in attracting your ideal client.

To put it simply, I’m crazy about you! I care! I want you to succeed! I'll go over and above to exceed your expectations (the same way I do for the couples I marry). There will be no holding back the gold nuggets. I want you to take away an abundance of practical ideas to implement so you can achieve real growth and success in your celebrant business.

I believe in kindness, hardwork and that the journey should be just as  – enjoyable if not more! – than the destination. 

Hi! I'm Julie. 

award winning celebrant

joanne brownlee - the soulful celebrant

"Coming into the wedding industry with limited connections, Julie first reached out to me simply to say hi and welcomed me to the industry, what a legend already! It wasn't until I stalked her that I discovered she is actually the best in the business and offered mentoring sessions! I knew the legal steps from my study, but my training didn't teach me squat in terms of running a successful celebrant business. Enter Julie Muir. I booked in a session hoping to level up my services. And boy did she deliver! What a wealth of knowledge she is! She had customised the session to include topics that I needed the most help with, including loads of extra ideas and inspiration that she had clearly written just for me. My business took off faster than I could have ever imagined and I am so grateful for the guidance Julie gave me in those early days. Investing in Julie has been one of the best decisions I made for my business."

What a wealth of knowledge she is!

sealed by steph

Julie’s knowledge of the celebrant industry is invaluable and has already taught me more than I could have imagined. I am always eagerly awaiting our next meeting and catch up as I know how much value she has added to my new journey and.. she just gets me!

I’d highly recommend mentoring with Julie to every new celebrant. If nothing else, but to feel reassured about where they are at, establishing values, direction, goals and setting themselves up for success from the get go.

Julie’s friendship, support and guidance have helped me dive head first into this amazing celebrant world and I cant thank her enough for making me feel so welcomed.

Julie has been invaluable as a mentor for a baby celebrant like me just starting out haha!

I can't wait to put into practice some of the things we discussed 

So much knowledge, grace and class in one woman.

nerida cain

She is an extremely smart and motivating woman and knows her industry and also knows a lot about promoting your business and being a true professional in a competitive market.

Do yourself a favor and invest in the mentoring it's so worth it and it will help you greatly and also boost your confidence as those first few months of being a celebrant can be stressful. 

I had no idea how much I would learn from her and that it was needed only that I had a gut feeling it was going to be worth it and it SO was worth it.

pamela mcintosh

Julie is the most amazing person I think I have ever met.

The mentoring Julie has provided has given me the confidence to be myself to show my own personality. This is a true gift from a mentor. 

Her energy and love for her celebrancy business is infectious.

Welcome to the Newcastle Celebrants' Book Club

Who else are we going to talk shop with when our partners get sick of all the wedding talk?! ⁠

Other celebrants are the closest thing we have to work colleagues even though we never actually work the same wedding. ⁠

If I have a new idea, I run it by them. When I want to celebrate my wins, it's other celebrants I turn to because I know they'll be happy for me. If I have a bad day, I'm straight on the blower to one of them to sort my head out. ⁠

We support each other. We lift each other up. We don't see each other as competition. That's a scarcity mindest that none of us are into. We all know our unique strengths and what we bring to the industry. ⁠

We are more interested in pushing each other to be better, to raise the bar, rather than worrying about who gets every booking. ⁠

I love all their guts! Everyone in this photo and more not pictured here. (OK, that's definitely a phrase I picked up from hanging around with Loz)⁠

Did you know that most of the celebrants in Newcastle actually know each other and hang out together?! 

Competition? Nah!
