Juliana was nothing short of amazing! In the months leading up to the wedding, she checked in with us on a regular basis. She helped us build the perfect ceremony by listening to our wants, providing us with suggestions & options when we were unclear, and by being well informed. The day of the wedding she arrived early, checked in with both of us prior to the ceremony, and put us both at ease. The ceremony she created was fabulous! Not only were we happy, but all of our guests raved about her throughout the reception. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! We would wholeheartedly recommend her for your wedding! Thank you, Juliana, for making our day complete.

Both my partner and I knew very little about the roles and responsibilities of an officiant, how to tackle vows, and generally what to expect of this process. But we both knew we wanted our ceremony to reflect our values and feel light-hearted and modern. After one conversation with Juliana, we knew it was the right fit and signed with her right away. She struck a perfect balance between guiding us and giving us a framework to work within, while allowing space and flexibility for us to create something in our authentic voice and style. Whether you have a perfect sense of what you're looking for, or no clue at all, we would highly recommend Juliana based on her adaptability and genuine care.

Juliana was fantastic! From our first in-person meeting she was incredibly professional, organized, caring and cool. She lead us through every step of the wedding process and was so helpful / supportive during the ceremony and vow writing time. On the Wedding Day she was punctual and performed a lovely service for us. She also provided some great 'best practices' and helpful insights from her previous wedding experiences that truly allowed us to enjoy and appreciate our big day even more! We would definitely recommend - Thanks Juliana!

Juliana officiated our wedding on October 13, 2018 and we could not be happier with how professional, helpful, supportive and genuine she was. She was perfect. Obviously my wife and I wanted to meet with our officiant before committing, but we both knew very early into our meeting with Juliana that she would be the officiant for our wedding. I believe we emailed to secure her on the car ride home. Juliana's warm and gentle demeanour was perfect for our ceremony. She sent us a directional overview for our ceremony that we were able to put our own personal touch on, and include a reading. She handled all our legal documents and certificates, and let us know what we needed to do in advance of the wedding in that regard. On the day of the wedding, she spoke beautifully and ensured that my wife and I focused on each other throughout the ceremony, which we appreciated. Anyone looking for an officiant would be lucky to have Juliana as a part of their ceremony. We highly recommend.

Juliana made planning my intimate wedding ceremony so much easier than I ever thought possible. My husband and I had no idea what was expected of us, how to write vows, what we wanted to say, etc. Juliana expertly and thoughtfully guided us through everything we needed to do. She was professional, confident, and kind throughout the entire process. She respected our requests completely and took the reins when appropriate (we're hands-off kind of people). She made the planning quick, and very easy for us and helped both of us write our vows. On the day of the ceremony, she arrived early and ensured everyone was in place. Her quiet, calm demeanor was a huge welcome for me on such a stress-filled occasion! She reminded me to breathe, relax and to enjoy each moment. Would 100% recommend. Thank you again, Juliana!

Couldn't imagine a better experience than what we had with Juliana. From the start she provided great advice, was well organized, and dedicated to making sure our ceremony was precisely the experience we wanted. Any questions were answered promptly and she accommodated our requests to customize our vows. On the day of the ceremony, Juliana kept us calm, organized, and spoke clearly and confidently, which our guests commented on. She even improvised at one point when we needed some help - seems like she can handle just about any situation with aplomb.

Despite never having met Juliana until about 30 minutes before our elopement, she felt like family! The ceremony was perfect and so in line with our personal values, you would have thought she had known us for years!! She eased our worries and made everybody feel welcome and comfortable. We received many compliments on Juliana's delivery and professionalism. It was refreshing to experience a truly modern ceremony that was far from stale and outdated/old school. I would recommend Juliana highly to anyone and everyone! Thank you again!!!
Angela and Scott
It was such a pleasure to work with Juliana and everyone who attended our ceremony commented on the wonderful job she did! She was highly professional, graceful, and she worked with us to write a beautiful, meaningful script. She also took the time beforehand to walk us through every part of the ceremony in detail so that we had a clear idea of the timing of each element and exactly what the ceremony would be like. Throughout our entire experience with Juliana, she brought a sense of calm (which helped us to feel calm but which also allowed us to enjoy the excitement around the wedding!). We are so happy to have chosen her and to have had her be part of our special day. We highly recommend her. Thank you so much, Juliana!!
Jasmine and Alex
We found Juliana on short notice, however her attention to detail and responsiveness made the ceremony planning so effortless for us. Juliana showed up well in advance on our wedding day and made sure sure everything was aligned and that we felt comfortable. This lead to our ceremony being a wonderful success. She has such a positive energy and great sense of humor. We connected with her instantly and knew she was the officiant for us. Highly recommend!
Michael and Christina
Juliana did an excellent job of taking us through the process and explaining all the steps in advance. On the day of the wedding, she provided a very calm and upbeat aura prior to the ceremony. She made the service easy, fun and enjoyable. She captured our vibe perfectly. We would highly recommend her.

We recently married at the November 16th Pop Up Chapel put on by Love by Lynzie at Evergreen Brickworks. As part of the chapel experience our officiant was arranged for us, so we only met Juliana about half an hour before our ceremony. Our expectations were exceeded when she proactively approached us in the waiting area and introduced herself in a warm and friendly manner. When we were ready, she took us aside to ensure that we were comfortable and familiar with all aspects of our upcoming ceremony, and to review all the language that would be used. During the ceremony Juliana was expressive and genuine. She provided additional guidance as needed while ensuring a seamless experience. Our family and friends all expressed that they felt she did an excellent job being enthusiastic and engaging. She even followed up via email the next day to communicate her best wishes, and to advise that our documents had been appropriately filed. In summary, Juliana was professional, efficient, sincere, and accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of an officiant for their big day!
Natalie and Daniel
Juliana was an excellent addition to our big day. She made the experience beautiful, easy going, and everything we could have asked for. I would recommend Juliana to anyone that is looking for an officiant.
Jason and Vanessa
Juliana was professional and personable. She is accommodating and made sure everything was done according to our needs. She knew that we were nervous, but assured us that she would be there to guide us throughout the ceremony. It was lovely to have her as our officiant.
Ivan and Manuela
We had a great experience with Juliana. She was punctual, professional and the pace of the ceremony was just right. Not too slow but also not rushed. She was very patient with me as I bawled through my vows.
Heather and Patrick
Juliana was absolutely delightful to work with. She set a very calming, graceful, approachable tone right off the bat for our ceremony; was clear and concise in her run-through of the ceremony, and was very flexible about how we wanted to include family members in the event.
Jennifer and Jeffrey
If we had to go back in time, our choice would remain the same! Juliana was very supportive and kept us well informed throughout the planning, the days before the wedding and on the day of the wedding. She was very understanding and put up with our indecisiveness... always telling us it’s ok to make the changes we need since this is our big day and it should be how we want it. Simply put, she was our rock standing by our side guiding and supporting us. We had opted in for queued vows that we wrote, but at the alter I choose to read mine instead and she had it right there for me to read. It all went super smooth because she spent the time necessary to get to know us and anticipated our actions as such! She even gave us the option to suggest her attire! We are very happy we had her as our officiant! Juliana, you rock!
Shelamaze and Kennesha
We had an excellent experience with Juliana as our wedding officiant.

Highly recommend!
