Celebrant Mentoring



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

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

You are in the right place if you want to:

  • Take your celebrant business to the next level
  • Become an expert at filling your diary with bookings
  • Receive consistently amazing client testimonials
  • Implement successful business processes
  • Attract your type of client
  • Take your celebrant business from part-time to full-time

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 2 years, I grew my business to the point that I was able to give up my day job and become a full-time celebrant. I know what it takes to be successful and sustain it.

If you have your Cert IV in Celebrancy that’s a great start…. it’s the beginning of your career as a celebrant but it’s what you do next that matters most.

I’ve developed a one-on-one, personalised mentoring service that will help you:

  • Take action as a new celebrant
  • Successfully implement your key learnings
  • Position yourself in the market
  • Figure out a pricing structure
  • Set yourself up to achieve your goals

Celebrant courses focus only a little on the business side of things…. having the skills to write a ceremony is essential but is not what will make a celebrant successful.

Learn from me as I provide my insider tips and reveal what you really need to know to advance and sustain your celebrant business….

I’ll show you my processes so you can establish an effective system of your own.

By becoming my Mentee, we can talk about whichever topics are most pressing for you right now!

  • Access to all my paperwork (1st/2nd Interview Checklist and Notes, Questionnaire, Service Agreement T&Cs, Couples Resource Kit)
  • Email templates
  • How to turn enquiries into bookings- (I have extremely high conversion rates)

Testimonial - Sealed by Steph

From the moment I connected with Julie about celebrant mentoring, she eased all of my concerns about my new business venture. 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’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.

Testimonial - Sarah Loves Love Life Celebrancy

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

So much knowledge, grace and class in one woman.

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

Sarah Loves Love Life Celebrancy

I design individualised programs that meet your needs, focusing on key areas of growth, tailored to where you are right now in your celebrant journey.

I’ll meet you where you are 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 take your celebrant business to the next level (and it might not be what you think, sometimes you don't know what you don't know)

We’ll look at your ideal couple and I’ll be transparent on topics like:

  • Customer service
  • The art of attention to detail and processes
  • Showing your couples that you care about their wedding day (hint- it’s in the small things)
  • How to exceed every couple’s expectations


As a celebrant you have your own unique ceremony style.

I’ll tell you all about how I found my niche and share a little more about a little something I call creating the ‘feel-good factor’. I’ll share the things I value most in a ceremony like projecting love and drawing wedding guests in to create an undeniable connection.


No one is you

Why do I choose to mentor you?

 I’m a cheerleader at heart. I believe in community over competition and I enjoy mentoring other celebrants. 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.

Become inspired…..Our role as celebrants is a gift

We have one of the greatest jobs in the world… if you know how to manage your business.

You start a business to get more freedom but if you are not careful, then you become a slave to the business.

I want you to avoid the pitfalls, so you can stay creative and in love with your work over the long-term.
