Julie was an absolute delight and most incredible celebrant for our wedding. She made us feel at ease and was wonderfully empathetic, perceptive, and fun. Countless wedding guests commented on how amazing Julie was – a testament to her ability to perfectly run the ceremony in the most beautiful and thoughtful way, catered to the couple, without stealing the show. We love Julie!

We can’t thank Julie enough for everything she did to make our day so perfect! Every meeting with Julie leading up to the big day she managed to make a special event. We were so impressed as well with her thorough rehearsal, which made everyone from our 2.5 year old flower girl to my dad, and of course us, so comfortable with the flow of the ceremony. Her knowledge and experience of things we wouldn’t have ever thought about just made the biggest moment of our lives that bit more perfect. We are so appreciative of everything she did, and the extra time and effort she put into adding a Chinese tea serving ceremony into our ceremony as well. We highly rate Julie Rattenbury, we couldn’t imagine anyone else kicking off the first day of the rest of our lives.

Hello hello 🙂
We are slowly recovering 🙂 we had the most fantastic evening, everything went really well. Can’t really believe it’s over! We really have to thank you for making our ceremony absolutely amazing. We have had loads of comments from our guests about how lovely you were and how perfectly you managed to capture us as people. Right from the first meeting you made us feel like you really ‘got’ us and what we wanted, and made us feel confident and special.

Thank you so much for all your hard work, patience, suggestions, thoughtfulness and legal know-how when planning our wedding. We had so much fun when organising this most important part of our marriage. Even though we only had eyes for each other on the day, we will forever remember your voice guiding us through it.
Thank you once again, with love

Many of our guests really enjoyed the ceremony, and they said many wonderful things about you.That was my best day I’ve ever had and I’m so thankful for your great work.

Jules you enriched our marriage experience so much that what was to be a special day, turned into a perfect day. You were so helpful, in an un-intrusive manner. Peter and I feel so lucky to have found you to perform our ceremony. You are unique and have truly found your calling.
So many thanks from our family xo
Tracey & Ian @ Ginninderry Homestead
we just wanted to send you a very heartfelt thank you for everything you did for us on our wedding day. Your guidance and the ceremony that we created together had the exact desired effect! It was loving, sincere and fun! You were so calm and collected and professional that it all ran so smoothly. Many of our family and guests commented on just how perfect the ceremony was for us. We could not recommend you more highly to anyone who wishes to have an individual, special marriage ceremony.
Ruth & Americo
Hi Julie, Just over a week on from our wonderful wedding we wanted to send you a short thank you to tell you how much our wedding meant to us. Though we were moderately unorganised in articulating exactly what we wanted, you delivered what turned out to be our perfect ceremony with so little help from us. From introduction to presentation as husband and wife, what you gave us was “us” in ways we didn’t know how to explain. We were so thrilled, not just in the ceremony, but in your kindness, thoughtfulness, organisation, and fabulous photography skills.
Stephen, Ammie & Riley @ Nara Peace Park, Lennox Garden
Thank you so much for helping us create such a beautiful day. You are wonderful and a delight to deal with! Your down to earth nature made the whole process easy and stress-free. Thank you for helping us through every step, you helped us create a ceremony that was unique to us and perfect in every way. Our little family is now complete and we cannot recommend you highly enough.
Claire & David @ Ginninderry Homestead
You are such a great celebrant! You made us both so comfortable from the get-go. With your guidance, we created a ceremony that was really special and meaningful to us and we’ve had a heap a really nice feedback. Everyone loved the promises especially! I think the ceremony really set the mood for the rest of the evening, it was just so nice and everyone was so happy, we really had a great day.
Kara and Dave @ Rose Gardens Old Parliment House
Thank you so much for the effort you put into being our celebrant. You did a fabulous job and so many people commented on what a lovely ceremony it was. Your organisation and effort left us with nothing to worry about, which was wonderful on such a big day!
Andrew and Emma @ Long Gully Winery
Jules really made our ceremony just the way we wanted it, and more. She was fantastic, could not recommend highly enough.
My Very Dear Friends Emma & Andrew. Was an amazing day out at Long Gully winery, with 250 guests. Louisa, Andrew’s dear school friend and Kiwi G sang an acoustic version of “I was made for loving you baby” by Kiss for Emma’s entrance which set the tone for the ceremony-and the day. Great pictures, by Emily from Esh Photography, another dear friend to all of us.
Jen and Nick @ Chachi Lennox Gardens
We are back in the UK now and will have a UK wedding party next weekend. It is never ending planning but we looking forward to celebrating with our mates. Thanks so much again for such a lovely ceremony.Everyone was so impressed with you and all commented that it was either the best wedding or the best intimate wedding they had been to.
Monique and Vernon @ Poachers Pantry
Thank you for being the celebrant at our wedding. We especially enjoyed working with you to make the day perfect. We have had many comments about how lovely the ceremony was, and we’re really happy with your professionalism on the day.
Rosalind and Ryan @ The Deck
When we met Julie we knew she was the right celebrant for us- her natural warmth, her genuine interest in us as individuals and her fantastic sense of humour struck us straight away. From the beginning, Julie was not only a knowledgeable and professional celebrant but a real friend who listened to what we wanted and didn’t try to make us fit any kind of formula. Our favourite part of a wedding was the ceremony itself because Julie encouraged us to be individual and as wacky as we liked, while still delivering a really romantic and meaningful ceremony in front of our family and friends. We can’t recommend Julie highly enough and looking back, could not imagine our wedding without her.
Annette and Chris @ Brassey Hotel
Not many people can say that they are blessed to be married by their best friend! What an honour and a privilege! Jules your passion for life, people and love is present in every aspect of what you do and how beautiful our day was. Thank you for reflecting our love for each other, our kids, our family and friends in a day that we will never forget.
Jordana & Leigh @ Gold Creek Chapel
Leigh and I would like to say THANK YOU so much for making our wedding day so special and helping us to make it reflect us.We appreciate everything you did for us, we think you are amazing and are definitely going to recommend you to everyone!!
We cannot thank you enough.
Belinda and Steve @ National Gallery of Australia
Just wanted to say a big thank you! We had such an amazing day and having you as our celebrant made it that much more special and a lot less stressful :-). Our ceremony suited us to a tee and it was a day we will never forget.
I hope you have a fantastic year, I know we couldn’t have had a better start to ours.
Fiona and Sam @ Rose Garden Old Parliament House
Jules, you are wonderful! Thankyou so much for conducting our Ceremony, it was absolutely perfect. Everyone wanted to know where we found our fantastic Celebrant, so I’m spreading the word far and wide!
