Your wedding BFF and ceremony guru, here to help you dazzle your guests

Say hi to your effervescent party-starter 



Every business has a beginning, and the idea for my celebrancy business started after my own wedding (a bit cliché, I know!). My Catholic mother was disappointed I wanted a civil wedding ceremony. Despite her views, I stood strong. I promised her that the ceremony would still be meaningful, so I made sure it was...... by writing it myself. I loved the process so much I knew this what I wanted to do. 

Hi, I'm Julie Muir  – but you can call me Jules!  [she/her]

A Dublin girl with a lust for life.

I believe that the journey should be just as fun – if not more! – than the destination. 

Oh, and I'm obsessed with podcasts and whiskey sours.


Am an inconsistent meditator.
Karaoke is my biggest fear.
Hate the gym. Love the mountains.
If I wasn't a celebrant, I'd be be a professional de-clutterer or skin care product reviewer.
I crinkle my nose when I'm really really happy.
Love hosting dinner parties but can't cook.
Studied Emotional Intelligence during lockdown just for fun. 
Full-blown sugar addict.
Prefer big talk to small talk.

But what am I really like?
Let's dive deeper in this 1 min run-down....

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

warm hugs,
fresh ideas,
holding space,
hard work,
being an ally,
exceeding expectations

I'm all about

I'm not about

stealing the limelight,
one size fits all approach,
creating unnecessary fuss

My Super Powers

I am best described as a doer. I move fast, take action and get the job done. Procrastination is not in my DNA .... unlike my husband. ⁠

I value accuracy and quality and have high attention to detail. ⁠

I'm naturally caring, a great listener, collaborator
and giver. ⁠

(Not in that way, silly!).
I love to share my thoughts and experiences in the hopes that they will be useful to others. I try to be enthusiastic, inviting and warm.

I am open, love diversity in all its forms and enjoy connecting with interesting people. ⁠

DOER...

DETAIL ORIENTATED…

CHEER LEADER…

INFLUENCER…

CONNECTOR…

" "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style" "

my all-time favourite quote

Great news,
it's my mission to make your life easier

Customer Service is the cornerstone of everything I do

My love of customer service goes way back, back to my childhood, before I even knew what I wanted to do with my life. ⁠

My parents owned a Bed n Breakfast when I was growing up.
It was my first taste of exceeding customer expectations.

I'd see my Mum Catherina going over and above for our guests.
By osmosis, I learnt from the best. She was an expert at making strangers feel like family in our home. ⁠
Through watching her, I learned how to make every customer interaction as uncomplicated and pleasant as possible.⁠

My Dad Jimmy taught me about⁠ loyalty and trust: valuing peoples time; keeping things straightforward⁠; meaning what you say; and that every issue is solvable with the right approach. ⁠

This is sounding a bit like an 🏆 Oscar speech now.
I'm already in too deep so I'll just finish it off by saying thanks to my parents for instilling me with a good work ethic
and setting me up for success. ⁠

From the moment my husband and I met Julie we knew we needed her to be apart of what was going be the most important day of our lives. At every interaction Julie was so easy to deal with and extremely helpful in providing any direction with required. On the day, she was amazing. The service was everything we had hoped for and more. Through the questionnaires we completed and the face to face meetings, Julie nailed who we are as individuals and as a couple."


"We both knew what we were after and Julie ticked every box. She was bright, bubbly and funny. A real breath of fresh air and someone who genuinely wants to give couples a personalised service that encompasses who they are their relationship.

My husband and I could not have imagined a more perfect wedding ceremony thanks to the talent of our celebrant Julie.  She is a talented writer so the ceremony she wrote for us needed minimal changes - even still she made it very clear she would be happy to make any changes for us, and even made a last minute change for us on the day. Several guests commented on how fantastic she was. I would highly recommend Julie to be part of your special day!"

"From the outset she was friendly and approachable and helped us create a tailored ceremony with guidance at every step that made the whole process stress-free.

I always thought the best part of a wedding was the dancing and I didn't ever expect to end up loving our ceremony as much as I did - thanks to Julie! At all times she was caring, considerate and provided so much thought and insight. Incredibly professional and approachable, she was an absolutely positive experience from start to finish!"

"Thanks to Julie we had a sensational and beautiful ceremony that far exceeded anything we initially expected.

NOELLE & JAMES, 48 WATTS ST, NEWCASTLE

Our Ceremony was everything we hoped it to be a perfect mix of love, laughter and tears and really captured the love story between James and I. So many of our guests have commented on how amazing Julie was. We can't thank Julie enough for helping us create everything we hoped our day to be. We would recommend Julie to anyone looking for a truly special celebrant."

From that very first meeting she instantly took away any anxieties and made us feel completely relaxed. 

I have a tonne of reviews if you want to read more. Thankfully I don't need to sell myself to future couples when my previous couples do it so perfectly for me!

I am not ashamed to say that 2018 was a tough year for me personally because I had two miscarriages.

In the following years, I had another two miscarriages and three failed rounds of IVF, before finally conceiving my son naturally. 

Through all of that, I was running my celebrancy business and trying not to let anyone else down. 

Thankfully I was able to access great tools to help me get back on track and keep my business moving forward through this difficult time.

Wedding Photographer James Howarth - Mr Hendrix Photography

 Her caring, humble approach towards couples is just so how all celebrants should be and if there is any couple out there considering Julie, consider no more and just book her - you will NOT be disappointed! She will even have a shot of whiskey with you if you are feeling a little nervous before the ceremony starts. Can't wait to work with Julie again. :) She is the type of person that will go into any situation and make you feel lighter and happier. Whether it's holding your hand and telling you to breathe, or downing a shot of whiskey alongside you; you can be certain that she's got your best interests at heart.

As a Wedding Photographer I have worked with many celebrants in the wedding industry and Julie has to be my one of my top faves!! :)

Lots of lovely people in the wedding industry have nice things to say working about me :)

I met/worked with this cool Irish chick at a wedding for a few years ago. I love her creativity and thoughtfulness... this is the amazing lady who usually brings me snacks and drinks when we work together and I really appreciate it a lot. And also that she can do these cool things like speak a bunch of languages and make eco confetti and run pre-marital workshops and the list goes on.

I quickly discovered that not only is she this extremely talented and hard working celebrant, she also happens to be the loveliest soul who just seem to draw people in with her radiance and authenticity.

Lots of lovely people in the wedding industry have nice things to say working about me :) 

P.S. I think I mentioned recently that even at your worst you're still better than most celebrants... which is a bit of an understatement... its like you were born to do it. It's such a highlight to work with you x

Julie was the celebrant at a wedding I photographed over the weekend at Rydges in Newcastle. From the thoughtful little bags she had put together to keep us photographers and videographers hydrated and fed to the funny and beautifully sweet ceremony she delivered for the wonderful couple. I cannot recommend her highly enough and cannot wait to work together again!

She is so incredibly lovely!

Julie is a breath of fresh air! She is so genuine, calm, and kind. She is also incredible, thoughtful, and I would have no hesitations recommending her to everyone getting married. Thanks Julie xx

It was such a pleasure working alongside her.

As photographers, we work alongside celebrants hand in hand throughout the day. And to watch the lengths Julie goes to to make her couples feel relaxed, at ease and laughing is nothing short of amazing.

She is the type of person that will go into any situation and make you feel lighter and happier. Whether it's holding your hand and telling you to breathe, or downing a shot of whiskey alongside you; you can be certain that she's got your best interests at heart.

To simply put it, Julie is one of the best.

She's everything you'd want in a ceremony confidante - thoughtful, authentic, creative, lively, and A LOT of fun! We've been lucky to do many weddings with Julie over the years and she is always such a joy. Our team likes to think of her as sunshine in human form.

Julie is one of our favourite celebrants to work with at Jade McIntosh Flowers & Styling.
