A little about Me!

work life

I conducted my 550th wedding in 2017 after 9 years, so I must be doing something right in the wedding industry! Have clocked up 21 straight years of high school teaching having a Bachelor of Education and a Masters Degree in Literacy from Melbourne and Monash Universities respectively (ironic considering my slightly ocker sound!)

I now teach VCAL students (the tradies) and look after careers choices for students.

The students keep me young, organised and ready for anything! Love challenging myself whilst making a difference.

Melbourne Celebrant

family & kids

Love family, it’s so important! I have five children/step children between the ages of 11 and 16 who keep my partner Jason and I busy (as you can imagine!).

Football, basketball, netball, dancing, training, homework, productions, rehearsals, part time work, play dates, sleepovers and family events means weekends and weeknights are flat out; but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Celebrant Yarra Valley


easy, relaxed personality

Nothing phases me really… Why worry about things that might not happen? I’m ready for anything-whatever you want, it can be accommodated.

Students, brides and grooms over the years surely don’t forget me, I love to make an impression!

When we meet up, you’ll be able to see this for yourself!

Frequently Asked Questions

Celebrant Yarra Valley

It all depends on where and when you marry! Generally, between $790 and $900 but there may be some additional travel fees for long travel distances for this Yarra Valley celebrant. Discounts available for midweek, morning, and lunchtime weddings.

Naming Ceremonies approximately $400.

Make an appointment to meet me in my home in Mt Evelyn, (or via Skype where distance proves a problem), I take you through my inspiration package, see if we have a meeting of the minds and you feel the vibe! If so, we lock in the date, you pay a $200 booking fee and start planning. NB: Book your celebrant once you’ve locked in your date!

Absolutely! Apart from you hearing the Monitum from the Marriage Act, you stating the legal vows and signing at the end, the ceremony is yours for the taking. Use my inspiration pack to guide you.

It varies of course, depending on what you choose to include in your ceremony. Most ceremonies I conduct from ‘walk in’ to ‘walk out’ are usually between 15 and 25 minutes.

Once you have the official certificate from www.bdm.vic.gov.au (about $32 and 8 weeks wait) you then need to visit and ring places to say that you now want to be known as Mrs Happy! (make sure you have your marriage certificate and ID with you!) Change your license first!

Pretty much anything!  Weddings, commitment ceremonies, vow renewals, naming days and the occasional funeral.

Julie is fantastic. Very down to earth and made us feel relaxed and confident about the ceremony. She was available to answer any queries and helped us create an event that was completely representative of us. We would definitely recommend her.
Melanie S
Julie was fantastic - she is really easy going and made us feel very relaxed and special. Our ceremony was just beautiful and emotional, but was also light-hearted and humorous where appropriate. We organised the wedding from the UK, and she expertly guided us through the process.
Lisa W
100% happy. She was just great, really welcoming and made us feel comfortable. She was perfect on the day, as we wanted something lighthearted but serious in all the right places and she was perfect.
Amy M
Julie made the ceremony process easy and took the stress out of it. Exactly what we needed. She accommodated all of our pedantic changes, and we had many comments from guests about how good she was. Can't say enough good things about Julie. If you can book her, book her!
Anthony F
I can not recommend Julie highly enough! We contacted her 5 weeks out from our wedding when our original celebrant had fallen through, and she did nothing but make us feel at ease with everything from our first meeting. She brought a bright and bubbly charm to our ceremony, and we had many guests compliment her on how fantastic our ceremony was.
Emily J
Julie was quite easy to deal with. The whole day was stress free and she gave us loads of resources to look at to come up with a ceremony that suited us, which I found helpful. Everything went off without a hitch.
Sarah H
We met with a couple of celebrants before Julie, but when we met with her we knew straight away that we wanted her. We had no clue what we were doing and she made it so simple and easy and had everything there for us. She was great to chat to and she was on everything straight away. She made it an easy process. The ceremony went to smoothly, everyone thought she was fantastic!
Emma C
Julie was absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better or more professional celebrant. She regularly got in contact with us during the whole planning of the wedding. She was easy to get along with and was about the see what we wanted. Thank you so much Julie
Rhianna G
I cannot rate Julie highly enough. She was a fantastic celebrant! I still to this day keep getting compliments on how great she was, she new exactly what to do & say to create the perfect ceremony for our perfect day. Thank you!!
Jessica L
We were over the moon with Julie. She was perfect for us. She immediately put me at ease when I met her. I was struck by the fact that she was organised and knew exactly what she was doing and answered all my questions on the spot. We arranged a meeting with her and my husband was joking with her straight away. She immediately understood that we were not hopeless romantics and she was so good at working us out straight away. She can read people really well. The ceremony was perfect, and she did exactly as she said.
