All ceremonies outside the hunter region may incur an additional small fee
HUNTER REGION, NSW
I currently live in Newcastle, NSW so 85% of my weddings are conducted in the Hunter Region. Costs on this website are relevant to this area stretching from Newcastle to Hunter Valley to Port Stephens to Central Coast. Small fees apply outside these zones.
MELBOURNE & SURROUNDS
Although I currently live in Newcastle, I'm a born and bred Melbournite so I looooove getting down there for weddings......good excuse to see family and friends.....as a result you will find my fees to be on par with local celebrants.
Yep…as I mentioned earlier, I’ll go anywhere, anytime. You can select any of the ceremony options and I just add a minimal fee on top which usually equates to the cost of hiring a local celebrant - as their fees are often higher than Hunter Region fees.......please also note that in no way does this additional charge usually cover my transport costs......lucky for you, I'm just soooooo happy to travel.
Ok…Ok…..if I must!!.....nothing would excite me more than to conduct amazing weddings overseas for you…..it would require paperwork and formalities to take place in Australia so that you are legally married here followed by a fabulous ceremony at your chosen location with all the bells and whistles minus the legal bits….Again, one of the ceremony options can be selected, then add travel costs on top.....final charges are on a case by case basis so just contact me and we can work on it together to make it happen!!
Bobbie & Ugur
Jules, I have witnessed so many weddings and never before have I felt so passionate about making sure you were our marriage celebrant. Your friendly nature, professional manner and ability to deliver on all things we asked of you leaves everyone else behind. We also loved that your personality, clothing and your equipment is modern, funky & professional.
Jacob & Emily
Right from the first day we met you, we found you so warm and welcoming and you made us feel like you really wanted to get to know us and make our ceremony personal and special. I can't tell you how many guests told us that you were the best celebrant they had ever seen and how much they loved the style of you ceremony. One person asked if you were a long term friend of our as you seemed to know us so well and genuinely care....Our ceremony was perfect in every way and it was all down to your beautiful words and laughter. I know I'm bias, but I think our ceremony was the best I've ever been to. We had a bloody ball! The photos speak for themselves!
Lauren & Greg
I just wanted to write you an email to tell you how utterly amazed we were at the ceremony you put together for our wedding! It was truly a highlight and sooooo many of our guests have told us it was the best ceremony they have seen. Everyone loved how personal the ceremony was and so humorous which is exactly our personalities! All the photos and videos just show us constantly laughing which is exactly what we wanted! We honestly picked a winner in you Jules - you were wonderful! I absolutely loved the fact you put our vows on playing cards - the date of our wedding a great personal touch! Our ceremony was the highlight of our day - just everything we hoped for and more, you are so talented at your craft!
Will & Danielle
Jules told a wonderful “story” that was so personal to our journey together. The story was told with humor, compassion and weaved in such an intelligent and entertaining manner. Jules thank you so much for bringing such an amazing energy to our big day. We never imagined that the absolute favorite part of our day would be the ceremony and thanks to you that was certainly the case.
Claus & Phoebe
The personal touches provided through talking to our friends, family and both of us to build the story of how we met and how we feel about each other was perfect – exactly what we wanted. The ceremony was a perfect balance of professionalism, personal touch and making us feel relaxed in the lead up to the wedding as well as on the day.
Lewis & Sarah
Your grace and professionalism is exceptional. Our ceremony could not have been more perfect and smooth running.
Rebecca & Heather
Considering we had only met once, we really felt (and so did the guests) that you ‘got’ us as a couple. It was a beautiful ceremony, lots of laughs and lots of tears – you asked the right questions and got to the heart of our partnership, presenting a truly personalized ceremony.
Valissa & Carl
We were thrilled to have you as our celebrant Jules, and you were great to work with the whole way through. So many people commented to us later on how great you were. One friend commented on how much you were just ‘one of us’……even the way you spoke seemed as though you were a friend talking about us. My brother in law’s comment was….’she certainly took the stress out of getting married!!!’
Shaun & Emily
We just wanted to say a huge thank you in playing such a crucial role in our marriage. We are so happy with how you conducted our ceremony and can’t speak highly enough of you. You helped us both so much as we had no idea of how a wedding was meant to be ran or even how to write our vows. You were patient with us and you didn’t pass judgment based on our ages. We’re so pleased to have met you and shared this occasion with you.

One person asked if you were a long term friend of our as you seemed to know us so well and genuinely care. My cousin even just asked for your details as she would love you to be the celebrant at her wedding in October! Our ceremony was perfect in every way and it was all down to your beautiful words and laughter. I know I'm bias, but I think our ceremony was the best I've ever been to. We had a bloody ball! The photos speak for themselves!
