Joyce Mathers | Civil Celebrant | Perth W.A.
Born in Scotland, I was married at the tender age of 21 and for the last 25 years I have had the pleasure of living in the beautiful city of Perth.
Being blessed with a fresh outlook on life and boundless energy, definitely makes me a ‘glass-half full’ kind of person. I’m told that among my better qualities are; my bubbly personality, my generous smile and my ability to make people feel relaxed and at ease in my company.
I am very much into the arts. As an accomplished Jazz singer I love both live music and the theatre but I equally enjoy sitting quietly reading my book under the shade of a tree… when free time permits.
I’m also a hopeless romantic at heart; totally in love with love and the concept of marriage. I think George Sands was right when he wrote:

So, let me lift the curtain a bit and let you take a peek at the 'real' me so you can get a feel for what makes me tick on a more personal level.

Joyce was fantastic!
Joyce was fantastic! We started off just wanting a straightforward wedding but she just very calmly and professionally suggested a few things to personalise a ceremony for us and we are so happy she did. Amazing! Went beyond what we expected. She was so warm, everyone loved her!
Brilliant! Thank you! Perfect day!
Joyce was fabulous! She helped us create the perfect wedding ceremony by making it comfortable, fun and enjoyable for us all.
Brilliant! Thank you! Perfect day!
I could not recommend Joyce highly enough, Thanks again xxx
She made our day absolutely stunning!
Absolute pleasure having Joyce as our wedding celebrant. She is so kind and loving. She made our day absolutely stunning!
Joyce is absolutely wonderful in every way!
What can I say... Joyce is absolutely wonderful in every way!
Our biggest concern was not being able to find a Celebrant that could make us feel calm during the ceremony
Joyce was a perfect match for us and made our wedding day extra special. We couldn't be any happier with her 🙂
She is so humble and genuine which makes the whole process so much easier!
Not only did she make us feel so calm during the ceremony, her presence was enough to make us feel loved... like she was part of the family!
Joyce was also able to recommend a piper and tunes for the ceremony which was one less stress for us.
So thank you Joyce for being such an amazing celebrant for Graeme and I!
I Couldn't Have Picked a Better Celebrant!
Joyce was amazing! I couldn't have picked a better Celebrant!
Joyce was so polite and friendly and we loved that she listened to our needs. .
She was so relaxed which, made us feel a lot more relaxed on the day.
We would love to recommend Joyce she did an amazing job.
I just want to say thank you for making our day so special.
Joyce made our service individual to us & special to our guests
We were concerned about finding a marriage celebrant that we would connect with and would make our day special and individual to us.
We met Joyce we were completely relaxed in her company. Joyce is an amazing person and we knew straight away that we had picked the correct celebrant for us.
The service Joyce provided was individual to us. She worked on our service and helped us facilitate the extras that we wanted to be part of our wedding day and gave us the appropriate advice on how to make the ceremony flow
We loved Joyce’s relaxed & welcoming personality as it made us feel relaxed and that was evident on our day: neither of us had nerves or any worries - Joyce dispersed them. Joyce wrote an amazing service for us, neither of us are religious and are very down to earth and she made the ceremony that way.
We would be more than happy to recommend Joyce to anyone. She made our service individual to us and special to our guests. We had the most amazing feedback from our guest at how amazing our ceremony was and that it was individual to us and out different cultures that we brought together.
Joyce, you were an amazing celebrant and you made our wedding ceremony. We have had only positive feedback regarding it. We cannot thank you enough.
Everyone Commented On How Great The Ceremony Was
We were looking for a marriage celebrant who would be knowledgeable, easy to contact and be able to give us many ideas for the ceremony. We had looked over some ceremony ideas online and in books but really wanted some guidance from someone who was well-informed. We also wanted to check details regarding the legal aspects, forms required, identification needed and so on to prevent any hitches.
Our main concern, from past experience dealing with other agencies and suppliers, was that whoever we chose would be easy to contact and answer our questions. We also wanted someone who had a friendly, humorous but professional approach. As a Celebrant, you fulfilled all of the criteria above and gave us so many great ideas for the ceremony, music and involvement of the guests.
You put both of us at ease, got to know us and what was important for us as a couple, and basically just guided us through the whole process. You thought of all the extra details that we may have overlooked, and delivered a fantastic service from start to finish, especially on the day where everyone commented on how great the ceremony was. You listened to our opinions and preferences, and still managed to convince a particularly headstrong groom to tow the line! =)
The documents and guide sheets were really useful as they meant we could read over everything and discuss it in the car following the appointment, and make decisions without overlooking things. They also clarified all the legal requirements and the steps needed. You also showed genuine interest in the venue and other parts of the day, and worked out how to make the ceremony compliment the event as a whole.
The face to face meetings were very helpful. We went through all of the details, relationship history, event details and ceremony preferences. The printed information documents wren also vet useful, including the legal things, the vow ideas, the ceremony addition ideas and then the draft copy of the ceremony before the day.
We would happily recommend your service to others, because we are confident that we would be promoting a professional, warm, trustworthy and humorous celebrant that others would be lucky to have!
Thank you so much for being our celebrant, we couldn’t have asked for better. If we renew our vows, you will be the first to know!
You Provided The Best Service And The Most Heartfelt Ceremony
I had attended previous weddings and the celebrants were either very young or a little detached I felt. I was looking for someone who had some life experience and wanted someone we felt comfortable with. You were the first celebrant I contacted and after speaking with you on the phone I didn’t bother speaking to anyone else.
From our first telephone conversation, I felt totally comfortable and when we met for the first time Tim actually said, “You have definitely chosen the right person” (and he doesn’t normally say much). We found you to be someone who is extremely professional and prompt in the business side of what needed to be done. In addition to this, which was very important to us, we found a very warm and caring person.
The service you provided was so special – not only professional but you cared about us personally, and our love story, how we got to the point of our decision to marry after 28 years. Loved how you also incorporated our lost loved-ones in our ceremony (I know there was a few - more than most young couples ha ha)
You made the legal process for us very smooth, explaining clearly what was needed. Sending us the ceremony was reassuring for what was going to happen on the day because it showed you had really listened to everything we had said about “our story” and our family story (have to tell you that we both were emotional reading the ceremony – a very good sign – and that’s how we chose our music).
We certainly are more than happy to recommend you. You provided “the best” service and the most heartfelt ceremony – so over and above anything we have ever seen at other weddings before. Your made the legal process easy for us, you actually listened and heard “our love story” and incorporated it all so perfectly in our ceremony.
There is nothing to add except another big “Thank you” for everything. Loved everything about our ceremony – and the “extra mile” you went for us - and such lovely things you said about the relationship we formed during the process. I know I’ve said it before but again “You’re Amazing”.
We are so thankful that we found you Joyce!
We are 100% happy to recommend Joyce Mathers to everybody. She is very well organised and very hands-on wedding celebrant who is so easy to work with.
Joyce is a very happy person and very lovely. I love her personality and I love the way she communicates with people - it’s like she’s a part of the family (well she is now because we love her).
Chrisvine and I are so very happy that we chose Joyce. It was so very hard for us to find a celebrant that suited our needs (we’ve been already with 2 celebrants and it didn’t go well) but her attitude towards us from the first time we met - well we just fell in love with her. She gave us tips about what marriage will be about, she also helped us with the paperwork and made things so hassle-free for us. Life is easy with Joyce.
We are so thankful that we found you Joyce. You made our special day very memorable and wonderful. You are one of a kind. We had a hard time looking for a celebrant to celebrate with us but then we met you - you were so perfect!
We cannot thank you enough. If there was a word that says more than “thank you”, we'd be very happy to say it to you. Thank you so much! God Bless you!
Thanks For Being So Amazing!
We had no idea what was involved and how much depth a marriage celebrant needed to go into - but Joyce soon fixed that!
Joyce was always available, would always get back to us and was happy to discuss any amendments - as a result the service was exactly what we wanted.
Joyce also helped us understand the process of the service and how to organise things and she provided us with alternatives so we could customise the service.
Joyce got us! And, her delivery was just perfect in conveying what we wanted and who we are as a couple.
Joyce, thanks for being so amazing - we couldn't have done it without you! You truly were a highlight of the day and everyone raved about you. You definitely delivered on all your promises and we will definitely be happy to recommend you to family and friends in need of a celebrant.
A Beautiful Memory in My Heart Forever
First of all, I have to say if you choose Joyce as your marriage celebrant, you never gonna regret. You will have totally beautiful wedding same as you wish. I recommend her highly. This is real my review
From first meeting with Joyce everything has been through smoothly. Actually we had a "budget and small wedding", but it was not problem at all. We married in Joyce's house in Perth with beautiful river view. It was much better than any other venue seriously!
From first meeting, she gave us many tips for making perfect wedding with a budget like as violinist, music, cake and decorating. Nothing was problem. Joyce was just magician, she convert our small wedding to most romantic wedding. Such a beautiful wedding memory I will put in my heart forever
Joyce, I need to say thank you. I don't know what to say, but is something more than just one word from my heart. xoxo
Joyce Made Us Feel Super Special!
My wife and I couldn't be happier with having Joyce as our marriage celebrant.
She was professional, friendly and made the marriage process a breeze. We had a very small and intimate wedding, and Joyce was able to still contribute with ideas which we incorporated into our ceremony. Even though it was small, she made us feel super special about our "big" day.
A massive thank you to her for her ongoing support, contribution and kindness. We would highly recommend anyone to Joyce in the future.
