I'm a Newcastle celebrant who loves her job. I'm passionate about creating personalised wedding ceremonies that reflect the personalities of those involved. So, there are no boring or out-dated ceremonies here!
Everyone has their own unique love story that deserves to be told- whether you met at the McDonalds on King st after a night at Kingas , backpacking in Asia, or even if yours is a Tinderella love story, I will write a beautiful story all about it, infused with a bit of humour. Your guests will be hanging off my every word hearing what you love about each other and what annoys you too!
You have so many options for personalising your ceremony. I will give you my super-duper 'Couples Resource Kit' full of ceremony inspiration and provide you with lots of MODERN ideas for ways to show your personality- ones that you will actually like!
My objective is always to create a RELAXED VIBE, so that you and your guests actually enjoy the ceremony (instead of having to endure it!). They will laugh and they will cry. It's important to bring the light and the shade. By the end, your guests will feel uplifted and ready for the P-A-R-T-Y.
I know that the wedding day can be a bit overwhelming for lots of people, (I see you introverts!) but I'll be there to help calm your nerves on the day and banter with the guests.
Are you planning to write your own vows? I know it's nerve-wracking but I'll help you to write the best vows ever. Insider tip: there is a bit of a formula that I'll share with you. I'll push you, in a good way. The results will be soooooo worth it.
Lucky for you, I have a talent for languages. 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 did you meet overseas? If you want a sprinkling of another language in your ceremony, I can make that happen for you.
In case you haven't guessed it, I should mention that I'm Irish, which means I have a knack for story-telling and a beautiful Irish accent. Don't worry, it's easy to understand. Your guests will love it! I also love Irish whiskey, proving that some stereotypes are true.
I'll explain all the legal requirements to you. You don't need to worry about a thing. I've got that covered! Lucky for you, I am a trained professional with high attention to detail. My husband calls me 'the beautiful organiser'.
While I'm a Newcastle celebrant, I spent most of my time in the Hunter Valley. It's nice to go to Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Port Stephens and the Central Coast too. Since having a baby, I don't tend to travel further than that, unless it's for the right couple!
Are you curious to hear my Irish accent? Let me tell you a little about how I work and what makes me the best!
" Julie is so talented at what she does! The first time my husband and I met Julie we knew straight away we had to lock her in!
Julie is organised and professional. She made the process of piecing together our ceremony so pleasant and stress free! She is very creative and works with her clients to create a ceremony that will definitely be one to remember.
Our wedding ceremony was absolutely perfect! There was so much emotion, love and even a few giggles to spice it up! Our guests could not speak more highly of Julie and how the ceremony was organised and presented.
Everyone also LOVED the Irish accent! She also has great taste in clothing and looks amazing standing up there at the alter! Haha!
Julie is honestly one of the most genuine, kind and thoughtful people I have ever met - such a beautiful soul! You will definitely not be disappointed, this woman is AMAZING!
We cannot thank you enough Julie! You made our day so perfect! "
Are you a bit stressed from all the wedding planning? I'll give you a good laugh. I normally try not to upstage my couples, but when I do........I go hard!
It is important that you connect with your celebrant and trust them to do a good job. I would love to Zoom with you for an no-obligation chat. Even if you decide not to go with me, it won't be a waste of your time. You will still gain a lot of useful information, so you've nothing to lose.
