Being a celebrant lights me up inside. My oxytocin goes through the roof knowing that I help people create beautiful and memorable life events.

In a former life, I had a career in sports event management which certainly helps me as a celebrant. I am super organised, have great attention to detail and love creating 'a feel good factor'.

I spend my downtime roller-skating, campaigning for the environment and planning my next overseas adventure. 

I am the whiskey-drinking, yarn-spinning, belly-laughing celebrant that is all you need to brighten your day and nail your event in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. 

Hi, I'm Julie. 

Looks like it's not just my friends who love to hang out with me

vow writing

It’s very common to feel overwhelmed by the idea of writing your own vows …..so let’s remove the nerves, pressure, stress and fears and replace that with vows that WOW.

visa letter

I'll provide you with an
 'Evidence of Notice Letter' that confirms your intent to marry, which will support your visa application. I've been there and done it myself ;)

baby namings

A naming day is great opportunity to talk about the child, your family values, your hopes for the future and appoint the godparents or guideparents. At the end, we should celebrate with cake!


Making preparations for a funeral comes at an immensely sensitive, personal and emotional time which is why finding the right celebrant in Newcastle makes this transitional phase just that little bit easier.

vow renewals

Let's celebrate your marriage!
Perhaps you've made it to a milestone anniversary

More than that I want them to be accepted, appreciated, and celebrated for who they are. This is a judgement-free zone.

I enjoy getting to know my clients so that their ceremony is a true reflection of who they are as people. It's about asking the right questions in the right way, really listening, and often reading between the lines. 

As a celebrant, I try to entertain while I inform.⁠ ⁠I think about my voice, inflection and mannerisms. ⁠I'm well-versed in the art of humour, metaphor, and symbolism.⁠ Above all, it's about moving your guests at their emotional core.

The goal is always to tell meaningful, emotional stories that resonate and delight. ⁠

I'm a heart-led creative who enjoys writing beautiful stories infused with a bit humour  

I speak Irish, Spanish, French and a bit of Italian: one of the advantages of growing up in Europe.

Is one of you from another country? Or maybe your parents are? Or did you meet overseas? 

If you want a sprinkling of another language (any language!) in your ceremony, I can make that happen for you.

I'm normally based in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley but I'll travel anywhere in Australia for a bi-lingual wedding ceremony. 

I want my ceremonies to be as inclusive as possible so I've also been learning Australian Sign Language. Are any of your guests deaf? I'd love to sign a few phrases using AUSLAN.

Lucky for you, I am the Queen of bi-lingual ceremonies.

Meet your celebrant

it's hard talking about myself.
here is what others have to say!

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 online 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.
