From Lightening Ridge to Newcastle: A Sunset Wedding by the Sea 🌅 Amber and Danny tracked me down on the Internet. They’re from Lightening Ridge but thought, “Hey, why not have a blast and tie the knot in Newcastle?” They weren’t picky about the date, time or location, so after some chitchat, we all agreed […]

I figured the aesthetic was going to be sophisticated and modern but I had no idea how incredible the styling was going to be. ⁠ ⁠Turns out……they didn’t either!!⁠⁠Noelle […]

MICRO WEDDING⁠⁠A wedding in Shepherds Hill, Newcastle wasn’t what Jessica & Jake had in mind at first.

Stephanie & Joshua only had a very select guest list for their micro wedding at New Lambton – a handful of their nearest and dearest were invited to a front yard ceremony in New Lambton. It felt so cosy, private and intimate and for the couple I am sure it had a very familiar feel […]

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 adventure. 

I am the whiskey-drinking, yarn-spinning, belly-laughing, ray of sunshine that is all you need to brighten your day and nail your event. 

Hi, I'm Julie.
